Bowling Party Cake
This was my 1st attempt at a topsy turvey cake using the wedge method...was very frustrated, but my son loved it for his bowling party.
Bas Relief Birds And Cherry Blossoms
I did this cake in a class taught by Dina Gandy yesterday. Great class & wonderful instructor. Fun learning the Bas Relief technique & now I just hope I can transfer it to other designs.
Batman - Sugar Free
This was for a 5 year boy who wanted batman. Everything had to be sugar free so the icing was hard to work with. Since it wouldn't crust, I couldn't smooth it like a normally do...thank goodness for the buildings around the sides!
Minnie Mouse Cupcakes
Minnie Mouse Cupcakes to match the cake topper for my daughter's 3rd b'day party.
This was for my daughter's 3rd b'day. I was so excited to make it and then so dissappointed at how it came out. I tried Indydebi's buttercream for the 1st time & used too much liquid in it. My damn to hold the filling in wasn't strong enough & I ended up with major middle bump. I also wouldn't pearlize the top again unless I had an airbrush.
I did this for my neighbor's daughter's birthday. She turned 11 and is a great mother's helper to me. She asked me to make her a cake for her ice skating party. She asked for a purple cake with bright colors. The colors were brighter in person.
Chocolate Wedding Cake
This was the closest I could come to the Spanish Textured cakes my bride wanted on Charly's Bakery website. Butter cake with chocolate ganache. Fresh flowers picked out by the bride.
Wiping Away Another Year
Inspired by someone here on CC, sorry I forgot who. This was for my husband's cousin who has been known to clog a toilet or two where ever he goes!
Camping/nature Themed Birthday
My son's friend is having a camping/nature themed party today. The cake has him (roasting marshmallows), his dog, and his little brother (in the tent). Chocolate cake with vanilla mousse & fresh strawberries. Buttercream icing and fondant/gumpaste decorations, oh and my first gelatine butterfly!
Katie's Sweet 16?
OK, so this cupcake shoppe called & asked if I would do a cake for them. My first "commercial" cake. They baked, leveled & filled & I went to the shop to decorate. The 16 year old wanted all black fondant, which by the way made my own MMF for this & will never do that for a black cake again! I thought on the phone they were saying scroll work, but when I got there they wanted skulls! She wanted all black & white one layer checkered & one layer with sculls. She then wanted me to write in green on the top Happy Sweet 16 Katie. I was instructed no pink. I drew the line at the green writing & convinced them to let me do the 3D top you see. She picked it up yesterday, I hope she was happy. Definately not one of my favorites!
Tiara Pillow Cake
This was my first attempt at a gumpaste tiara, quilting pattern & pillow cake. Was so nervous but was pleased with the outcome. Wish the tiara had a nicer shiney look, please help if anyone has suggestions. Inspiration was from so many different ones here on CC.
This cake was inspired by a great one here on CC done by LoriRice. Hers is much better than mine, but my cousin loved it & I had to try it for her. It was so much fun to make. It's covered in BC with MMF accents.
This cake was covered in MMF & decorated with MMF accents for my son's "robot" themed birthday party. It was a big hit with the kids!
Baby Girl Christening
I made this cake for my daughter's christening. Inspiration taken from a few here on CC. MMF covered with fondant & gumpaste accents.
Pool Party Cupcakes
These cupcakes were done for 6 year old twins having a pool party. PatrysV inspired me with her great cupcakes! These were the bottom two tiers and had a pool theme cake on top. Other pics on CC also.
This cake was for twins having a pool birthday bash. So many cakes to inspire me on CC. Really loved ones done by odm_post & mommyerin. This was just topper for a tierd stand & also had 30 cupcakes on lower tiers. Pics on CC also.
My friend and I fell in love with pastryprincess727 farm theme cake. Her daughter's birthday party was at a farm & I agreed to attempt to make a smaller version. Not as good as the original, but hopefully not too bad for a beginner either. Thanks pastryprincess727 for your inspiration!
