I thought these cupcakes were going to be a real hassle because the buttercream leaves & flowers were to be piped on top of them...but they weren't as bad as I'd expected!

First, I smoothed the Bailey's Chocolate Buttercream and the Grand Marnier Vanilla Buttercream tops with a small off-set palette knife...then I piped the leaves and flowers onto parchment-lined cookie sheets, froze them and then just placed them on all the cupcakes. 

Froze the cupcakes overnight for easier transport/delivery/setup!!

Well, after the disaster cake (which turned out to taste pretty great) I threw this cake together the next morning. It's almost a traditional Danish birthday cake. It's a layered cake with cooked vanilla creme, strawberries and macaroons, chocolate ganache. The icing swirls didn't turn out as I'd hoped but I'll get to work more on that soon. My DH just loved this cake (but then again they love all my cakes :-))

This was my first try at this technique and it's okay but will have to do some more research before I try again... It was for a friend as a surprise I think I'm safe...

I forgot to mention that the medalion is pure chocolate poured into a circle mold... Pretty cool I think...

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 my first big cake!  I taught myself with the help from this site and help from the forums here.  It's a 3 tier, pineapple filling, with the white wedding cake recipe and I used the Viva Method Crusting Buttercream icing-I used salted butter which seem to cut down the sweetness.  Although the viva towel did not work-What worked was a water spray bottle.  It's not that smooth, but hey, it's my 1st cake and I'm teaching myself.  Thank to all who helped me with my ?'s and thanks to this site.  :)

I made a cake for both my co-workers and one of the likes to fish and the other likes orange roses and both like cookies and cream so I came up with this cake.  This was my first ice cream cake.  I'm still a beginner so I didn't get to really detail it.  Everyone at work loved it!!

Bride to be wanted Vanilla Vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.  Said her plates were reminiscient of Kandinsky's painting, so I found Wilton Brush on colors in the clearance aisle the night they were due, and click!  I used a paint brush and did the circles on top.  It also pays to be a teacher, I've asked other teachers to save the cupcake holders, so I might not have to purchase my own quite yet.

I had two cake tastings on one day, and thought I'd do it with cupcakes...  I put different fillings in each, with three different cakes... I put a symbol on top so I'd know what filling was in each.

Gave them a great deal because I'm starting out and there was lots of people there: I thought about all the publicity! And it was a hit!!  I gave away lots of business cards!

My first "not practice" cakes for my grandparent's 60th anniversary. 
Not perfect, but everyone loved them. 

(I know the top tier was supposed to sit down on the big pearls, but I didn't realize the pillars needed trimming until it was too late.)

Tiered cake is vanilla/vanilla on top and butter pecan/apricot on the bottom.

Package cakes are (l to r) vanilla/coconut, strawberry/strawberry, lemon/blackberry, and chocolate/raspberry.

This was a 1/2 Vanilla, 1/2 Chocolate layered Rectangle Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Filling and Vanilla Buttercream Icing and Decorations.  I enjoyed doing this cake (for my mother-in-law and about 30 people.)  I got the idea from the Wilton Course II booklet.

I made that cake for my daughter first birthday.  I cut the bears of the birthday's invitation and I put its on the halfmoon.  To make the baby bear I used a mouse pan.  For the sides of the cakes I used a tip #18 and making up and down zig-zag covered all the sides.

This was another practice cake - I tried the recipe from Food Network for cinnamon vanilla cake - not extremely  moist, but not too dry. I used the cinnamon -coffee buttercream from CC - AWESOME - even though I didn't use instant coffee like you were supposed to (oops). It was also made so I could practice some drop flowers w/ turning the turntable instead of your hand technique - LOVE that technique!

Baked this cake for my son's 7th birthday. Vanilla cake with lychees fillings, iced with buttercream. Also added a nest top with 7 dino chocolate eggs. Spikes and toe nails are sugarised candies. The kids were so thrilled with the dino cake and I had lots of fun decorating it.

French vanilla cake with caramel coffee creamer, the filling was vanilla and chocolate.  I added mocha chocolate creamer to the buttercream and then sprinkled the top with shavings of white and dark chocolate with Kahlua.  My husband is a chocoholic and he loved it

This is my first time posting a cake. I made this for my daughter's birthday a few days a go. I'm pretty new to cake decorating and haven't taken any classes so I have a lot to learn. I used vanilla buttercream for the cake and MMF for the shapes and number.

I didn't have time to pipe a border along the edges so I just used marshmallows instead. The kids loved picking at it!

Very first purse cake with the initials of the B'day girl. She loved it so much, that she doesn't want to eat it. It is still sitting in her kitchen. I don't understand some people.

This was yesterday's wedding cupcakes. They had a blend of Dark Chocolate and Tahitian Vanilla in gold foil papers. The top cake was for cutting and it was both Dark Chocolate and Vanilla layers inside.
