Entire sewing machine is cake - even the top part. All the accessories are gumpast/fondant. All edible except for the two wooden skewers on the left that are used to support the top cake. They were decorated/painted to look like the needle assembly.
Tar Heel Groom Cake With Rat
The bride told me that her husband was a recent graduate from the University of North Carolina (tar heels) as a Chemistry major and that the thing he hated the most about school was cutting on the lab rats. Soo, she wanted one on his groom cake. Made from rice cripies covered with chocolate fondant. Made him look like he had just taken a bite out of the top of the cake. Thanks for looking.
Paisley And Oval
This cake was for a friend's mother's birthday. We were just playing around with using different shapes with the paisley pans and came up with this combo. I think it looks pretty cool

Lsu Eye Of The Tiger
I hand carved this from a 12 x 18, covered it in fondant and then hand painted it.
Black And Gold Fleur De Lis
This was a groom cake for a couple who are big Saints fans. Hand carved - very hard to cover in fondant!!!!!
16" cake with an 8" cake cut out of the middle. I carved down the corners to make it round and then applied about 50 million fondant holly leaves. Finally gave up and filled in the gaps with buttercream using the leaf tip. I think it ended up looking more realistic with the different textrues. I rolled fondant around plastic dowels for the candles. Gumpaste bow. White chocolate pinecones. Thanks for looking
Abita Beer Bottle Groom Cake
The body of the bottle was made from cake, the neck from rice crispies. The whole thing is iced in buttercream and then air brushed. Edible images for the labels. Gumpaste cap. The cake board was decorated with labels that Abita sent to me
14" cake covered in ivory fondant. Lillies, stems and leaves are all fondant. The fleur de lis and plaque are made from molded white chocolate. The colors were to match the wedding colors as this cake was for a bridal shower.
This was made from three 10" square cakes that were 4"s tall each. The rounded top was made from 10" rounds cut in half and stood on the cut edges. Iced the whole thing with butter cream and then wrapped in chocolate fondant. Because the cake was so tall, I had a center dowel screwed into the wooden base plate. I cut holes in all the cake boards so I could just slip them over the dowl. The cake never moved during transportation. It was for a 60th birthday party.
Daisy Anniversary Cake
Gumpaste daisies. Cakes covered in fondant and airbrushed with pearl. The top tier is set all the way back to accomodate the crystal piece which is from the couple's original wedding cake. This was to celebrate a 25th anniversary.
Halo Guy And Xbox
These two cakes together were the groom cake for a friend of mine who is addicted to playing Halo. The head is made from rice crispies and the shoulders/body are cake. The Xbox is all cake covered in fondant which I put on too thickly causing the corners of the box to round out. Ah well, can't be perfect all the time. I did find some cool contact paper at Michaels with which I covered the cake board. It made it look like metal.
Fleur De Lis
Base cake is 12" x 18" with carved top layer. All covered in fondant with a lot of black fondant cut outs added to the top. Airbrushed the whole cake silver. The black fondant looks pewter colored - turned out really cool looking. The fleur de lis around the top layer are white chocolate brushed with silver high lighter dust.
Bob The Builder Cupcakes
Each cupcake is topped with a hard hat made from molded white chocolate. The tools and tool box were made the same way. All of the tools were dusted with luster dust to make them shiny. Each was on its own 6" cake board covered with contact paper.
4" 8" and 12" covered in fondant with fondant accents. The trees were made with pretzel rods and fondant/gumpaste leaves. The picture doesn't really show the small monkey that was also made from fondant/gumpaste. All the colors and design matched the party ware. You can kind of see it on the table cloth.
