This was a big cake.  It's two 11x15s with a book cake on top. The chocolate base is two toned.  Apparently, when you let chocolate sit at room temp too long before you pipe it, it get's darker.  The piping is both light and dark.  I tried to camoflauge (sp?) it a little by sprinkling cocoa powder on it but to no avail.  Who knew!!! Bookmard and tassel are fondant.  flowers are royal.  Icing is a chocolate buttercream.

I made this for my friend's Mother.  Her retirement party & Mother's Day happened to fall at the same time.  She has a lot of hobbies, so her family wanted to somehow display them on the cake.  I chose to write it around the cake on the ribbon in caligraphy.  The top tier is French vanilla and the bottom is chocolate, both with buttercream filling.  The bow is fondant with gumtex added to it.

I made this cake for a very sweet lady in our County Vehicle Registration office.  As you can see she is a slot inthusiast!  Her motto "MAX BET SPIN!!"  The day before I was to deliver this I found out that the number of guests had doubled so I stayed up pretty late making the matching cupcakes.

This is for a teacher's retirement.  Our school colors are green and white.  I added the pink so that I could do roses.  Everything is done in buttercream.
I used a new ruffle tip on top and on the bottom border.

This was a retirement cake for an elementary school librarian.  It is a full sheet cake that is half white and half chocolate, I carved it to look like a book.  I scored the edges to look like pages.  I used buttercream frosting and fondant for the roses.

Made for preschool teacher retirement. White and chocolate cake with BC frosting and chocolate transfers. I couldn't figure out how I was going to get the writing to go on straight and decided to do it as a chocolate transfer...I think it turned out pretty well. I am not thrilled with the cake..wish I'd left the roses off, but hopefully it'll be enjoyed by the teachers. Thanks to those on the site..I got the saying from someone else's cake.

I was asked by our school to do a small cake for a reception at school for our principal's retirement.  I saw a cake by finally928 on this site and decided to use a quote similar to hers.  The cake is a 9x13 white cake with white icing, the poem is an edible image and the flowers are fondant daisies.

Red velvet cake with buttercream icing.  The insignia is color flow, and I placed stars (from the wilton patriotic spinkles) around the cake on the boarder. The picks on the back of the cake are garland that I got at Michaels for $.99, I cut it to the length that I wanted and twisted on a large dowel to curl it a bit!

I made this "family tree cake" for a teacher's retirement. It's iced in buttercream, with fondant leaves which were signed by all the staff members. The bird in the  corner represents our teacher who is 'flying away from her family'.

I started my summer job at my county's Dept. of Public Works office 3 weeks ago. My new boss decided that he was going to move to the Board of Ed. so we gave him a going away party. When he worked for the DPW he designed a program to create "green roofs," gravelbeds and plants growing on tops of buildings, throughout the county. So this was his going away cake -- green roof style. For some reason my blue frosting never keeps its color well. Does anyone know why?

This I made for my kids preschool. It celebrated it's 40th birthday yesterday and I also had to incorporate the teacher who is leaving for retirement after 27 (!) years. She a real ourdoorsy person!
It's as always all fondant - the little person on the front is the schools logo!

lots of help from this site, especially with the crown, thanks MelC!  This was for a teacher who is retiring (that's why all of the 30s) and is always put together.  Staff requested the crown.  Fun to make!

I made this for a teacher who was retiring.  It's chocolate cake with bc and mmf accents.  The only thing that's not edible is the umbrella and support for chair.  She loves the beach, so this was perfect!

This little character, Olivia, is the cutest little thing!  Our children's librarian was retiring to stay home and take care of her grandchildren.  They asked me to do her cake and I asked what her favorite character was.  I went home with four or five Olivia books and chose the pictures from the books that best fit the librarian.  My favorite is the last one with Olivia carrying the stack of books and saying, "Please ... just one more story."

This was for a customer who's husband had recently retired and it also happened to be his birthday.  This was my first FBCT and I was so happy with it, as was the customer.  She tipped me an extra $5!  I love it when that happens.  This is a 8" square chocolate cake with BC icing.   
Thanks for looking!

My dad likes to do a lot of different things, so we struggle with what type of cake to do.  So, I incorporated all of the things he enjoys doing (computers, space shuttle, golf, bowling).  The cake is iced smooth in buttercream and decorated in buttercream.  Golf ball is made from candy clay.

After 31 years of service a nearby community wanted to show the impact of a retiring fire chief's service to their city.  The two cakes that I made helped convey his impact on that community.

This was a cake made for someone at my work who was moving to another state. I had everyone sign two pieces of paper and copied them onto edible paper. Drizzled light blue chocolate on the sides and air brushed sides. I added ribbon curls to the cake.
