Decided to post this here, also, because it was made specifically for a Chinese theme party. Dragon is buttercream frosting with white chocolate lavendar colored spikes. He's made from an 8" round, a 9" long oval, and 2 cupcakes.
Course Ii Finale Cake
This is my Finale Cake for the Wilton Course II class. The butterflies are colorflow. The flowers are royal icing. The basketweave and icing is buttercream. I thought it was pretty.. This cake developed cracks in the frosting and a huge earthquake-like crack down the center by the time I got home. See that picture in the Cake Disasters forum in thread called "Earthquake Cake...".
This was my first cake! I used 3 or 4 tubes of red food coloring because I didn't even know you could buy the actual icing coloring paste! It turned out great for my son's 4th birthday party. He had a Rescue Heroes Party.
Scooby Doo Cake
This was my first attempt at making a cake with a Wilton shaped pan. After I baked it and took it out of the pan, I really thought I'd gotten in over my head! We were just amazed at how it turned out. And even I couldn't believe that I made it myself! If I can do it, ANYone can! My son loved it for his 5th Birthday Party.
Dora The Explorer Cake
Okay, this was my second cake using a Wilton shaped pan. It turned out great! This was for my daughter's 2nd birthday and she Loved it! I love these cakes, they are so easy. Believe me, if I can do it, you can too!
