Beer stein cake for my husband’s birthday! The design on the stein is the House Targaryen sigil. I always like to read helpful hints about construction, so I thought I’d write out a long explanation. Thanks to SandraSmiley for her help with the lid and handle! Everything is edible except for the beer stein lid and the can (which I chose to make non-edible due to weight concerns). The lid is fondant-covered Styrofoam. The can is real. For the beer, I used the “Boiled or Poured Sugar Recipe” on this website and poured it over a sharpened wooden dowel, turning the dowel all the time, until I got an effect I liked. Then I drove the dowel through the cake into the cakeboard, and hot-glued the end of the dowel onto the can. All of the accessories are made of fondant and hand painted with food coloring. The cake board is covered with fondant, textured by hand, and painted with food coloring. The “foam” is melted marshmallows. The “sauerkraut” is coconut colored with food coloring and mixed with piping gel. I painted the cake with luster dust mixed with everclear and then dusted with charcoal petal dust, which gave it an aged pewter look. Then I steamed the cake to set the dust. For the handle and lid, I formed a C shape for the handle out of floral wire and used floral tape to attach the handle for the lid at a 90 degree angle to the C. Then I poked a hole in the lid so that I could easily insert the wire. Then I covered everything with fondant mixed with tylose. The cake was Durable Cake with peanut butter buttercream and chocolate ganache. I used five six inch rounds.

Sixty, Sassy & Classy
This was for a birthday party with the theme Sixty, Sassy and Classy. The title fits the recipient. She's such a great person and I was honored to be asked to make her cake. And she doesn't look a day over 40.
Bride Doll Cake With Charms
Cake was baked in the wilton doll pan (yellow cake). I add another single layer at bottom to give me more height for the skirt. Inserted doll. The top of the dress is fondant, the skirt iced in buttercream. I placed the pink ribbon charms at the waist line just under the fondant and piped a lace design all over skirt. I made the veil, hot glued tiny pearl on it & made her flower bouquet and pearl necklace.
Baby On The Moon Cake
I made this cake for a baby shower. The cake is vanilla with a swiss meringue buttercream airbrushed in different blue's. The moon is made from modelling chocolate. The base of the moon is a hard candy recipe over a cake drum. The baby, crown and stars are all made from fondant.
Woodland Enchanted Forest Wedding Cake
I handcrafted each of the tiny wildflowers and berries you see here on the cake out of gum paste. I added feathers and 'old mans beard' around the wreath I had wired as I love to mix mediums in cake design. I was so lucky to have an incredible photographer friend Elena Popa Photo capture this cake in the perfect woodland setting, over in Wickerwood Farm East Sussex ( England)
