I made this for a friends daughter's birthday. Someone had given a picture of a similar cake to my friend and she asked if I could make one like it. It was a 2 layer 8" square cake filled w/buttercream and covered w/fondant. You can't tell from the picture but it was cut at an angle and tapered at the top. The birthday girl loved it!
Bushel Crab Basket
I made this for a birthday party at my house this weekend. We ate crabs. I made crab shaped sugar cookies but took the picture before putting them in the basket. Cake was strawberry torted and filled with cream cheese icing (my husband's favorite) lightly sprayed with red color and fondant wood slats.
I made this for someone hosting a party for National Scrapbooking Day. I used edible images on fondant and placed them on the "scrapbook". Cake was 1/2 chocolate and 1/2 vanilla.

This was made for a friend that another friend had played a practical joke on - hanging these on his truck. This friend had requested that I make him a hot milk cake ~ which I did ~ he didn't specify what to decorate it with. I used a chocolate transfer and whipped icing with chocolate rocks. It was a hit!

Spongebob Chocolate Transfer Done By My Son

I made this for a Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation banquet planning meeting. This is their motto. It was vanilla cake filled with strawberry and iced in creamcheese icing with the edible image. They have asked me to donate an identical cake to be auctioned off at the banquet.
I did this for the YMCA where my son goes for before and after school care. Everyone sends stuff in to the class rooms but never to the "Y". I made this from a picture they had on the bulletin board. This is the cake I was going to use the glaze on when it didn't turn out so I just used the outlines. They didn't seem to mind. My son picked out strawberry cake for this one.
A co-worker had me make this for someone that was celebrating a milestone birthday but didn't want a cake for his birthday. He did however want everyone to know that over the last year he had walked/run 1 mile every day. I put the 365 miles in 365 days around the cake sides along with the royal icing runners and decorated the top for his hobby - country line dancing.
Just For Fun!
This was a variation of a cake that my son and nephew picked out of Kate Sullivan's book kate's cake decorating. This was my MMF test cake with the basket weave they wanted to see over it and candy clay birds and flowers in a color I had handy. I made it and then we ate it!
