Cake-buttercream Images on Cake Central
Last October was a month of many retirements at work. Our company offered the “Golden Handshake” which is basically an attractive retirement package to anyone close to retirement, thinking about an upcoming retirement or anyone wanting to find employment elsewhere. This was offered to help the company’s budget in the upcoming year(s) and we had close to about 40 people who accepted the offer. I made this cake for two of my coworkers and then made 3 separate mini cakes for 3 other coworkers. We gifted them with vintage engraved forks I found on Etsy. I found inspiration for this cake on Pinterest. This cake was a chocolate cake with strawberry buttercream and fresh sliced strawberry filling and frosted with Frostin Pride. My handwriting on a cake is not so good and I never get it aligned right so my trick is to find a font I like, trace it with royal icing on waxed paper and transfer it to the cake (or on fondant plaques). The smaller cakes were 4” mini chocolate cakes with buttercream filling and frosting cake
Birch Bark Wedding Cake
Out here in the West, Rustic is ever popular. Here’s a 3 tiered, white/almond wedding cake with almond buttercream filling, covered in MMF. Silk flowers add the final touch. I forgot to take a picture in good light (darn) so this is one I requested from the bride. It’s in the cooler.
Super Hero Cake
This a popular cake. 3rd one I’ve done this year. Vanilla cake covered in buttercream & MMF. Hulk fist is rice Krispie Treat, molded, covered in vanilla ganache and then fondant.
Heron Birthday Cake
I have always wanted to do a cake version of a heron painting I have in my bathroom. This tall cake is two layers of strawberry with cream cheese icing and two layers of vanilla with French vanilla buttercream. The Heron is painted on fondant. Sea grass is made of edible wafer paper. Shells are fondant.

Thomas The Train
I made this for my sweet little 3 yr old grandson. I wish I had a picture of his face when he saw it and again when I told him it was for him. Vanilla cake covered in vanilla buttercream & MMF with fondant figures. This one took some time.

Elephant Baby Shower
Not my best work... very last minute. I literally had 4 hours of notice! Fondant elephant, yellow cake and vanilla buttercream.
Robin Hood With Dragon
I got to make this cake for my friend's son who loves Robin Hood and dragons. The body of the dragon was vanilla cake with raspberry filling and vanilla buttercream. The tail and head of the dragon were made out of Rice Krispie Treats. Little Robin Hood was gum paste, fondant, and modeling chocolate.
