White cake covered in fondant, royal icing cherry blossom limbs and fondant cherry blossoms. Spout, handle, dollie and teacups are Pettinice as well. Since the cake was smaller, I also made cherry blossom sugar cookies to go along with it.  I learned a lot from this cake and your feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Argh! Yesterday was a bad day. I did the branch design on site when I set up, but forgot my sketch and the photo from the web I was attempting to duplicate. Had to do it freehand by memory so it's not quite what I had envisioned. 

I also thought the bride was having a monogram topper, so I left the branches on the sides only. My mistake, no topper. I would have loved to have continued the pattern up to the very top instead.

Jelly rolls for sushi rolls (various tinted MMF/BC/coconut/real cream cheese to make fillings), nigiri sushi (prawns-painted/tinted, egg tinted) MMF, white cake for nigiri sushi under prawns/egg. Base cake my own carrot cake recipe (she insisted on carrot cake-didnt know about the sushi part though), sushi mat on top is tinted MMF imprinted with skewers and the 'threads' are white gel. Rolls are brownish because had to use brown sugar for jelly roll recipe ugh lol

This cake was made for the OSSAS show when the theme was a wedding cake fit for a queen.  I came in 5th.  

The symbols on the fan (to the left of the cake) mean "True Love" and I think the symbol on the cakes means "Eternity".

I think I used about 5 containers of gold and a couple of bottles of Everclear to paint this cake.  The liquor store people gave me some odd looks. :)

I wondered if I would get a request to write names in Hiragana; one form of Japanese writing, (being I live here in Japan).  It was actually pretty easy and fun.  The celebration was for six ladies and they were very excited and impressed by the cake. They took lots and lots of pictures.

Created for the East Central Arts Council juried art show which opens November 11, 2006. She is a torted one layer sculpted butter cake folded like a sandwich. Except for the four cake dowels in the screen behind her and the one cake dowel in the cake, this artist doll and screen is entirely edible. Satin Ice Fondant, royal icing, piping gel and luster dust accents. Thank you for looking.

This is a 40th Birthday cake I made for my Japanese cousin.  I  was looking for something different !   The '40' standing on the cake was sparkler candles.  Hard to see here, but the cake is mint green with two-tone pink cherry blossoms.   It was inspired by an Arizona Green Tea bottle .

In honor of my niece's birthday party at a Japanese steakhouse.  I looked up the words online and prayed the translation was correct so as not to offend anyone (or sound silly).  Fondant & buttercream.  If you try this, please learn from my error as far as fitting the writing in correctly.

This is an icing image of one of my son's beloved Yu-Gi-Oh cards.  The Japanese characters below the picture spell Happy Birthday and the four characters in front say Jack (at least according to Google!).  Letters and swirlies are painted w/ gold luster dust.  Hope he likes it.

I made these for a friend who's birthday is this week--we're both sushi fans. Nori is made of fondant, everything else is icing and non-perils.

I made this cake this weekend for the small cake competition here on base.  I got 3rd place.  This cake was all about Okinawa.  I made the cherry blossoms, the kokeshi doll and the Okinawan inspired fan from fondant.  My filling was Beni Imo also known as the Okinawan Sweet Potato.  It is purple.  I am thrilled with how it turned out.  It is exactly as I  planned.

A customer frantically called me on Friday asking if I could make this cake for Saturday. Her usual baker flaked out at the last minute and she had no cake for her son's party which was being thrown at a Japanese steakhouse.  This is what I came up with. Bottom tier is a 9" square cake, the middle tier is 7" square and the top is 5" square. These are covered in red fondant, then brushed with cranberry petal dust. The eaves are fondant brushed with super gold lusterdust. Thanks for looking! :-)

My daughter chose an Asian theme for her 10th bday party.  The cake is chocolate with chocolate mousse filling and buttercream icing.  Decorated with fondant bamboo and cherry blossoms, chocolate transfer fan and name plate that says Happy Birthday summer in Japanese kanji.  1st time doing chocolate transfer and I was happy with the way they turned out.  This was fun, thanks for looking!

My cousin loves all things Japanese. This is the graduation cake I made for him- complete with dragon, fondant oni masks, and Kanji script.  From what I could find "Kotobuki" means congratulations. Hopefully I'm not too far off the mark!

This is a marble cake with buttercream icining and decorations. The character is an anime character called Rock. I made this for a friend of my teenage daughter. They are both into Japanese cartooning. My daughter's friend loved it.

My daughter had an asian themed birthday, so we came up with little sushi cakes since not everyone likes sushi and she wanted something sushi to go with her theme.   The chopsticks are Pockys, a japanese cracker coated in chocolate, and the fortune cookie is just a regular fortune cookie.   Now everyone loves sushi at our house!

This chocolate cake & crispy rice treat version does not do the comic/cartoon character justice.  Naruto is some cool ninja dude my nephew loves watching and inspired his latest b-day party theme.

Two lanterns stacked on top of each other with rippled fondant in red and gold hooks on top.  I was doing this for a competition, but I ran out of time to make the rope chain to hold them together because I was helping my daughters finish their cakes.  Oh well!

I made this for my Husband's Black Belt Cermony. The roof is Gumpaste, "glued" together with almond bark. The top Cake is a dummy cake (my first). I used Swiss Meringue Buttercream (also a first) and loved it! The doors and windows are also almond bark. I painted all the trim/glue with a mixture if Gold Pearl Dust and peppermint extract so all the gold stuff tasted minty!. Three layers of cake, chocolate, white and carrot, with the buttercream between each layer. The kanji on the roof says "karate".

There are not 40 blossoms on the cake.  The Japanese symbols represent "40" which was the birthday gal's age.  Shhhhhh, don't tell!  Used the Chai Tea Cake recipe here on CC but cake has not been cut as of this upload.  I'll let you know how they liked it.  The branches and symbols are made out of modeling chocolate a friend gave me.  I love that stuff!  Icing is flavored with chai tea covered in MMF.  Blossoms are also MMF.  TFL

Can anyone read this?  I had to do some homework on this cake!  It spells out "Happy Birthday Kelsey" in Japanese.  The picture is not real good...but the cake is iced with whipped cream icing trimmed in buttercream.  I sure would be interested in a good whipped cream icing recipe...does anyone have one?
