Chocolate-fondant 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

Anui - Indigenous People Of Japan
This Anui gentleman was my entry in the Japan - An International Cake Collaboration, hosted by the wonderful Raquel Garcia. He is 14 inches tall, made of modeling chocolate with clothes of fondant and headpiece of fondant and wafer paper. The whole thing is painted with a combination of dry brush and petal dusts mixed with vodka.
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.
