My-little Images on Cake Central
Little Chocolate Cake
6" chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and dark chocolate dipped strawberries for my best friend....just 'cause.
Kitty Cat Cake
A little something for my wife. Vanilla cake with pastry cream filling, buttercream frosting, and fondant decorations.
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.
Beer Mug Cake
Client (Co-worker) wanted a "Beer Can Cake" for her dad. She knew I was a cake decorator, but never seen what kind of cakes I create. I told her I was going to make a Beer Can Cake for her, but it might be a little different than what she was expecting. She said what I as a cake decorator love to hear ... "go ahead, make me whatever kind of cake you'd like." Her and her husband loved it, and were speechless! Her father was overjoyed with his cake! She said the cake does not look real and that it is not like anything she ever imagined when she said she wanted a Beer Can Cake. (There is a man laying "under" the beer with his mouth open drinking it, and a man used a ladder to climb up the mug to "get in" the beer. (I love, love, love to see/hear people's reaction when they see their cakes for the first time. We did it again Grandma! Thank you dear God for guiding my hand.)
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.
Here Comes The Train!
Another birthday cake for my sweet little rascal. He is stuck in the train stage...Doesn't want to let it go. Soooo, mom made a cake for him with a chocolate train. Of course, the rascal that he is complained: "Mom, I wanted a birthday cake... not a birthday tart!" Oh... where is Herod when I need him! Anyway, tart or cake he loved the train and the realistic landscape. The tart is called San Diego, is was originally designed to be a petit four. Base of sweet tart dough, one layer of chocolate hazelnut paste and the top layer of pistachio almond paste. Very rich and fulfilling indeed. Decorated with hazelnut-chocolate paste tracks and borders, ground pistachios, cocoa powder and tart dough crumbs.
