Petal Images on Cake Central
Made for the Sweet Easy Collaboration, which introduced the Drageekiss, my Gatsby Bride is made of rice cereal treats and modeling chocolate with accessories of fondant, gum paste, cake lace, wafer paper and tons of sugar pearls. She is painted with petal dusts mixed with vodka. The flowers are gum paste and the shoe is gum paste, lace and pearls.
Painted Poppy Cake
Just a styrofoam display cake for the gumpaste Poppies I made a few weeks ago for a cake club round robin. A bit of hand painting with petal dust and alcohol.
"statue Of Liberty"
The Statue of Liberty was created for the Wonders of the World Challenge. She is made of modeling chocolate with robes of fondant and a crown of gum paste. She is painted with petal dusts mixed with vodka. Lady Liberty was presented as a gift to a friend who just earned her U. S. citizenship. She was thrilled and proud to display our symbol of freedom.
The Leopard is my contribution to the Spectacular Pakistan Collaboration. It is painted on an 8" x 11" fondant panel with petal dusts mixed with vodka.
Shabby Chic Wafer Paper Cake
This cake has been wrapped with wafer paper scraps from my collection of prints applied randomly to create an overall ‘shabby chic’ effect. The complimentary flower and branches are made from the same prints, each petal and leaf cut by hand to avoid uniformity. The wafer paper has been highlighted with gold luster to add a little sparkle

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.
