This was a cake for my Wilton III course. I was going on a girls' weekend the next day, so decided to make it appropriate with cocktail garnishes. Started with olives and loved them so much I stuck with them. A classmate suggested the mini-olive borde around the bottom. White/choc cake with chocolate almond BC, fondant everything else. What a fun cake to make!

This was a last minute cake ordered for a dinner party.  Wish more people got together and had nice cakes for their gatherings ;-) This was an 8" chocolate cake filled with my favorite Amaretto Espresso buttercream filling.  The lid is choclate fondant as are the brown stripes and the other is plain ole' fondant.

Caramel Mudcake, 9 layers of caramel mudcake joined with creamy caramel ganache. Covered in blue buttercream with blue fondant flowers, and a fondant loop bow. This is my first attempt at one of these bows, it was a lot harder than it looked, I got the instructions from this website. I am not 100% happy with how it came out. The cake owner loved it. Gumpaste gift card saying Happy birthday

This was for a 40th b-day celebration.  Her colors were lilac, cream, & silver.  The gift box is white cake with strawberry filling and the purse is 3 layers of white cake with buttercream in between.  Both are covered in fondant and accented with edible pearls.  I colored the pearls,  the fondant '40' & zipper with luster dust (this was the first time for me to work with the dusts and I must say it was very easy & I enjoyed it!). These cakes fed about 75 people.

This cake was done for a co-workers daughter, who was turning 21.  These are the colors she wanted. 

the cake itself is three layers of Kaye's chocolate butter cake, with cookies and cream filling..yum!  It is covered in white chocolate fondnat. the bow is also white chocolate fondant.  It was my first time making a bow.  Not bad for my first time.  :)

My co-worker and her daughter both LOVED it!  Thanks for looking.

I know, I know these Tiffany cakes seemed to be overdone on Cake Central, but not in my world and the Birthday Girl is raving to eveyone as I write this blurb. This is my 3rd fondant practice cake. It is my Grandma's lemon cake recipe. The color was achieved by equal amounts of Americolor Teal and Sky Blue. Your critique very welcome! (Critique: assessment of something, usually a creative work, with comments on its good and bad qualities.) Thanks super big bunches.

I don't get to use fondant a lot - most people dont like the taste - So I was happy to finally do a cake where I could use it.  It was my first bow - which turned out ok.  It is a Martha Stewart Perfect White Cake with Raspberry mousse filling and buttercream icing with MMF accents of course.

My first fondant bow!!! I think I came out pretty cute. It was also my first square cake so it was a new experience doing the straight edges.  It is 6X6X5 Strawberry Swirl delight with strawberry cheese cake filling. Covered in BC and Fondant with Fondant trim and deco. It is for my husbands co-worker, for her birthday.

of _ChristyB_ cake.  My client visited CC because she didn't really know what design she wanted for her birthday.  She came across this cake , loved it, and asked if I could change the color scheme from pink to purple.

Here's the second gift box cake for the weekend.  This is also borrowed from someone on this site.  My customer found it and I couldn't find it, so if you see this and you made it, thank you for such an awesome design!!!

This cake was a gift to a friend of mine who loves Pucca and The Beatles. The bottom box is an illustration of the lyrics to Across the Universe, and everything's MMF except for the gumpaste Pucca and word raindrops.

Gift box cake. Cake is chocolate covered in chocolate buttercream icing. Tissue is fondant. Lid and bow is gumpaste. Gift tag is rice paper. Pansies, rosebuds and violet are royal icing. Lid lifts off To reveal a surprise - a gumpaste orchid. She does not know the sex of the baby so I did the cake in pink and blue.

This two-tier gift box cake was for a Surprise 30th Birthday party a mom threw for her daughter. The theme of the party was a Mexican fiesta-ish party.  We decided not to go Mexican for the cake - but festive indeed! It is white cake with Oreos and Cream Buttercream, covered in vanilla buttercream and rolled fondant.  I threw in a few sugar cookies decorated in the same color for a little more fun!

3 Tiffany Boxes, all white cake, strawberry filling, french vanilla buttercream and fondant.  With the exception of the words themselves, all edible.  Constructive criticism is appreciated as it was my first set of boxes.  Thanks

I didn't care for the way this turned out.  We were pretty rushed in class trying to get it done.  I do like the colors pink, black and white though.
I didn't want to put the dots on the ribbon but one of my fellow students touched the ribbon with her finger that had food coloring on it.  Since I didn't have time to redo the cake I just threw some dots on.  
Working with fondant was fun and I think I will remake the gift box cake but spend more time on it.

The cakes are wrapped in white chocolate plastic and the ribbons and flowers are marshmallow fondant. This cake is so heavy. I always make too much. :) 

Edited to add: I welcome any constructive criticism. Really!

I made this for my dear stepdaughter - she got engaged last week!  French vanilla cake made in the smallest pan of the mini-heart pan set - 2 layers for the box and 1 layer for the lid.  Iced in buttercream, with a fondant bow and fondant engagement ring.  I used gold luster dust for the band of the ring, and pearl dust for the diamond.

This was a learning experience.  My first gift box cake, my first fondant bow and the first time making baby booties.  It was lots of fun.  My favorite so far.  Box top is cardboard cut and formed intoa box lid, covered in gumpaste with a fondant bow and ribbons.  The cake is 4 layers (2 chocolate, 1 white and 1 strawberry) iced in buttercream with hand painted polka dots.  Ribbon, baby shoes, tissue paper and teddy bear are fondant.

Here is  a small gift box, made from a 7" round cake pan.. I used the collar method from this site to get my cake to rise high.. So that I could have enough cake to cut the top off for the "lid" of my cake.. Colored Fondant accents to match Tinkerbell.. I was trying to make a cake to match Tinkerbell, without really using Tinkerbell herself.. I also found cute wings at a dollar store and added one to my cake and one to each cupcake.. I had alot of fun on this cake..

9x3 bottom and 6x6 top...I probably should've added a bow or ribbon to the bottom box...The idea was to have two different gifts, as you would with real ones, which you stack on top of each other.
