Super Mario Icing Smiles Cake
Icing Smiles birthday cake for Keagan celebrating his 5th. Chocolate and vanilla marble cake with chocolate fudge buttercream filling, vanilla frosting and white chocolate ganache. Mario and other decorations are made from fondant and modeling chocolate. The tiers are 9", 7" and 6". The design was inspired La Torta Perfetta.
Created for the Gothic Art Collaboration, my goth fairy is made of modeling chocolate on a wire armature, dress and hair are fondant, wings are gelatin and cake lace, the skull is modeling chocolate over styrofoam and the flowers are gum paste. The piece is 16 inches tall.
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
