This is my first wedding cake(s).  I had to bring all of my pans, tools, and ingredients down to Florida from New Jersey for this cake.  These cakes are hexagon shaped coverd in ivory rolled fondant with piped royal icing scrollwork.  The cameos are made of fondant and were airbrushed.  The flowers are silk.  The cakes were yellow sponge cake with a chocolate gnache filling.  I covered the cakes with buttercream icing before applying the fondant.

This cake was based on a business card for the Scissor Sisters Salon.  The rectangle cake is chocolate with ganache filling, covered in fondant, and the swirls are luster dust.  The scissors are a vanilla cake with ganache and covered in fondant.  The cut out of the scissors is silver luster dust on black fondant.

These cakes were for a 13th birthday party. All of the cakes are carved and then filled with chocolate ganache mousse. Each cake is covered in fondant and then has some fondant decorations. The N stands for the birthday girls name (Nicole). I made the base by hot glueing cardboard together so that the cakes can stand up and used black satin to cover the cardboard.

This is a double layer giant ding dong cake I made for a friend at work to celebrate the return of hockey season.  Gold and green are luster dust, letters and base of star are buttercream.  Icing is from Giant Ding Dong cake recipe from Cake  I made a double layer because a single layer wasn't tall enough to look like a hockey puck.

Book cake with diploma made from MMF and an edible image.  I got the idea from this site!  The diploma and book pages are trimmed in gold lusterdust.  I realized after the customer had the cake that I forgot to add the red ribbon!  darn!

This is a carrot pinapple cake with crusting cream cheese frosting.  White chocolate shells dusted with luster dust.  It was pretty much one disaster after another!  First my cake pans overflowed then my icing would not crust... ARGGG.  Anyway it turned out ok and was a big hit!

Fondant is MMF, first time working with it and I love It!  Lots of luster dust involved in this one.  I was shooting for a lighter silver, but I like how it turned out.

Vanilla cake with BC icing.  Gumpaste roses, plaque, and beads.  Silver Luster Dust on beads.  Cornelli lace saved me from a less than smooth icing job!

This is a dummy cake I did for practice and to use the new tools I bought.  It is inspired by the cake on the cakesbysam website.

This was my very first commission AND my very first time to work with fondant!!  For the middle cake I ran into a problem trying to get the fondant to go on smoothly down the sides.  I ended up gathering it in the front, hence the flowers to cover my mistake.  Someone tell me how to do the fondant right, please!  I painted the leaves and pansies with super luster dust.  The flowers are royal icing, the leaves buttercream.  The top cake was supposed to be quilted.  The lines were really faint, though.  Help!

This is a cake that I did for s project class that I am teaching in April. The cake uses fondant, airbrushing, molded gumpaste, hand painted accents and luster dust. The coral and sand dollars are made of royal icing and have airbrushed color or luster dust on them to add color or highlights.

First attempt at a tilted cake.  Did this for a  local cake contest....learned as I went.  My theme was obviously KSU...but took it a step further and put our instate rival's mascot "in jail" on the back side!  LOLOL  They're if anyone cares!!!!!!!!!!!  MMF was a mess for me....too dry and not a smooth application at all.  Gumpaste flowers with floral ribbon and filler added.  Luster Dust and Pearl Dust here and there.  FUN but stressful!

This was suppose to be the shoe box with a lid and tissue paper but I got lazy and just placed the shoe on top.  It was made for my 2-year old that loves shoes and purses.  It was the first time I made a chocolate mold AND first time I used my luster dust.

My first fondant cake.  The top decorations and the beads around the base are all fondant.  I found the fondant to be really tough when it came time to eat the cake.  I think I might have kneaded it for too long when I was adding the color.  Anyway, everyone loved the way it looked.  Especially with the gold luster dust.

Made this at a Collette Peters class called "Cake Sculpture". It is a dummy cake covered in fondant. Painted and sponged with luster dusts.I ran out of time before I could put the finishing touches on the pillows, but I was happy with the results. Unfortunately, when stacked, the cake came out lopsided! Anyway, I'm anxious to try this with real cake. :)

This is the cake I made for my son's birthday yesterday. It was my first try at a 3D cake. I liked it, but I think that I could do it better next time. It was chocolate with cookies and cream filling. I used MMF painted with luster dust for the spikes, wings and tails. My son totally loved it!!! It was a marvelous hit at the party!!! Thanks to everyone who helped me out with this!! saviors, every one of you. I also got another order from this one!

Not sure how this is going to look....scanned it into my computer from a printed photo.  Anyway, this is chocolate and white cake, covered in fondant, decorated with ribbon and luster dust.  Snippets of songs, poetry, and such.  He must've liked it....he's got a big picture of it as the last page in their wedding album.

Actually was my very first attempt at the Wilton contest.  Can't remember what kind of cake, but covered in fondant and decorated with buttercream, trying to make it look embroidered.  Painted the braids on the front with gold luster dust.

Boring request so I added the ivy leaves and dusted them with a little gold luster dust... took picture when cake was straight out of freezer.  Once it thawed the leaves were glistening, or so the bride said!

This cake is iced smooth with buttercream icing.  Bride wanted a simple cake with holly leaves and berries.  Holly leaves and berries were made with royal icing on a pre-printed pattern on top of wax paper.  Edible pearls were coated with pearlized luster dust.

Had to deliver this cake on a Friday morning in a snow storm that closed down the public school system.  I was barely able to get out of the driveway with my car......not one holly leaf fell off....Whewww!

Sorry this picture is not very clear.  It is an older 35mm picture that has been scanned onto my computer. 

This cake is iced smooth in buttercream icing.  Each layer has pre-pressed scrolls encircling the layers.  These scrolls are piped using buttercream icing.  Also accenting the cake are edible pearls coated in pearlized luster dust.  Florist placed the petals on and around the cake.

The burgandy color see to be different in every room depending on lighting, so I decided to coat the petals in violet luster dust and the calyx in avocado. I'm not too happy with how they turned out, so I guess I will be practicing them until i have roses coming out of my ears!

This Castle Wedding Cake Measures: 19-3/4" High x 13" Wide.  It is heavier than all get out!  LOL!!  Once again, "Thanks Tuggy, for such great ideas".  All decorations are edible, made of MMF and Butter Cream.

This cake measures: 10", 8", 6" tiers.   Decorations are made of MMF with tons of Luster Dust!   By the way, I made the cracks on purpose!  I thought it gave the cake an Old World look.  I think this cake would be ideal for a wine tasting party or a wedding in a vinyard with lots of grapes on it rather than leaves.  Cake for thought!  LOL!

My 2nd attempt at recreating the pillow cake I made in Colette Peter's class..that one was a dummy, this one is all cake. Its not perfect, but closer to the look I want that my 1st attempt! 8" square cake shaped and covered in MMF. 4" round shaped and covered in MMF. Both painted with luster dust. Burned my hand severely making this one! I hope my neighbor will enjoy the cake. :)

I made this cake for my big brother.  After 35 years he found his biological mother (my mom), I was happy to know that I have a big brother.  He came to visit with his wife and kids.  I made them a cake, with the logo of their Art gallery on the top.  I'm posting another picture of the top.  First time using Satinice fondant and also first time painting with luster dust.  I loved both!!!

This was one of those 'surprise ending' cakes.  Requested it to serve 55, wanted metallic silver and mardi-gras purple, with guest of honor's nickname on cake... still haven't figured that one out!  I practically used up a whole jar of luster dust on that star layer!  Oooo - just realized how loose my foil was.  How tacky! LOL

This cake is actually more skin tone than chocolate looking-very low lighting at the reception-champagne luster dust added afterward. Hoping the votive candles, when lit, would show off the shimmer! Leaves are white chocolate candy mold & white chocolate painted onto mint leaves, then brushed with luster dust. Pink satin ribbon around each tier. Inside is chocolate cake w/chocolate mint filling. Hope they enjoyed it-it was very hard to walk away once it was all assembled!
