This is a four-layer, white cake with the kalhua raspberry cream filling recipe. (See recipe section of this site.) I used whipped cream to ice and decorate the cake. I thawed out frozen raspberries for the garnishing.

The cake was made for a gentleman who is diabetic.

I made this cake for my dad's retirement. With my husbands help I made an 18 hole golf course, each hole has a major acheivement in my dads life. It was a hit at the party and noone wanted to cut it.

I found out the major points of Bob's life from his wife-took some tidbits from his co-workers and just made his road of life! Started with "IT'S A BOB-i  made "BOB" by taking picture of him attaching it to a fondant body-travelling his road--he was thrilled and very appreciative-he is not the typical "retirement cake" kind of guy!

This cake was made for a close friend's retirement party.  The theme of the party was red and purple hats (I think she's going to start a chapter of Red Hat Society).  The hat is a ball pan cake, covered in fondant, and BC frosting.  The cake is a 3-layer, white/lemon marble with lemon pudding frosting.

I made this retirement cake for one of my husband's soldiers.  I was really, really sick from a sinus and allergy infection so it was hard to get the quartermaster symbol right and I did not finish the cake until two hours before the ceremony.  Made my husband nervous.  I was not at all happy with it.

This is a cut-out cake that I made for a retirement party. I used two square pans so I had two flavors. I drew out a template and cutout the cake and then outlined the design in dark grey buttercream and filled in with buttercream. The bottom border is done with a bag striped with blue and red and filled with white buttercream to get the tri-color effect.

This is my first BCT - 2nd attempt!  I got carried away with the size of the picture because the first try was too small and couldn't help but run some of the details together - this one kinda takes up the whole cake!!  This is the first large sheet cake I've done as well (two 13X9 side by side).

One day when my husband came home from work, he said to me -- one of my managers is retiring, wouldn't it be nice if you did a cake for him?!  I said ok, when do you need it?? he said tomorrow!!!  Isn't this the way it is with husbands!   It didn't turn out to bad for one day notice!

My boss was retiring and my depy asked if I could do a cake. He is a HUGE Star Trek nut (as am I:)) so I came up with a simple yet masculine cake for him. The symbol is a Star Trek symbol with the state of VA in the center. Everybody loved it!

Thank you to everyone on CC who helped me with this cake.  A special mention to Squirrely who really helped me out (almost live) when I was making whimsical cakehouse icing for this cake for the first time.  The cake is for about 50's 2 9x13's put together.

Made for a retirement at my work.  Piping Gel Transfer all Buttercream.  I wasn't happy that my I let the turtle crust before I could smooth him better.  Everyone at work said that it made look rough like a real turtle would have.  11x15 devil's food.  I still have a hard time with my icing picking up choc cake crumbs! :(  I will post an up close of the turtle.  This is the Snapper (mower) turtle logo.

Royal Icing picture.  On such detailed stuff like this I like to use the royal icing as opposed to the FBCT - I've had some of my fbct outlines run together so I didn't want to risk it.  This is a double layer 13X9.  Had to make the badge as large as I could so that I could get the details in there...ended up taking up the whole cake!

This cake was for a friend's retirement party.  She has a lot of cats and she really liked this cake.  She saved all the cats off the top and took them home to her daughter.  This was a white almond sour cream cake, raspberry filling with white and chocolate buttercream icing and royal icing daisies and drop flowers.

This was for a man at my Grandma's church. The only request was to make it look like it was for a man. No frills or flowers.

Not happy with how this cake turned out.  So many mistakes!  They probably won't even notice so it'll do.

For dad's retirement party I created this one. Merely inspired by charmcitycakes - and with some help and encouragement of bulldog. 2 stack cake, the green is rolled fondant - the grey is mmf. First time on MMF and I loved using it! On the screws I added some silver dust.

This was made for a retirement party but I think it is much more suited to a bridal shower.  It is a half sheet white cake with strawberry cheesecake filling and fondant flowers and butterflys dusted with petal and luster dusts in blue and lavendar with a marbled fondant plaque.  The writing was done my the grand child of the person who retired.  It was a perfect match to the napkins that were printed right down to the blue on blue background pattern.  Everyone was wowed I was very proud.

I made this out of rich fruit cake. The seat of the chair was a whole 8 inch fruit cake, the arms of the chair was made from a 4 inch fruit cake cut in half, and the backrest of the arm chair was made from a square 4 inch fruit cake and a round 4 inch fruit cake. I cut the round in half and placed eitherside of the 4 inch square cake to make the backrest rounded at the corners. This cake was a replica of a friends favourite chair, so was the cat!!
