Simple Bridal Shower Cake
This one was made to go with one I did for a bridal shower - for the same couple's rehearsal dinner. Buttercream with fondant roses.
Teal And Brown Baby Shower
For my daughter's teacher's baby shower in her classroom. Her favorite colors are brown and teal. Everything is fondant. Once again, the bow kicked my hiney, but practice makes.... better? :)
Buttercream with fondant accents, ruffles, and cloth ribbon. I don't know where the design for the cake came from - a friend showed me the picture, so if it's someone's design, let me know!!!
Green Bridal Shower
Buttercream with fondant roses for a couple whose wedding colors were pink and green.
buttercream with jelly beans and a store bought bunny and plastic handle. The insides are chocolate and vanilla with a strawberry buttercream filling (my neopolitan cake).
Our Squirrel Whisperer
This was one of those hurry up and make cakes, so it's not perfect, but it's for a neighbor who loves squirrels. Chocolate buttercream with fondant peanuts and squirrel.
Another Cinderella :) - buttercream with fondant accents. I also added some fondant pearls around the bottom of the dress, but they aren't in this picture.
Horse Birthday For A Girl
Buttercream with a chocolate piped horse. This cake was designed to match her partyware.
"love" In Chinese
Sugar cookies with fondant. The Chinese symbol for love is stamped on each cookie. These were done for a baby shower for a Chinese orphange.
This was a really fun cake to make. All fondant with a few gumpaste accents. The sails are gumpaste - the water is royal icing.
chocolate cake with peppermint buttercream filling. buttercream icing with fondant dots and gumpaste flowers. Bought the booties for sake of time. Not thrilled, but it'll do... it'll do. :)
Star Trek Runabout
Yikes! Never want to do this one again. I had to come up with something for Star Trek the Next Generation - and I there's no way I'd try to make the actual Enterprise. So I tried to make a "runabout" I think it's called - one of their ships. Chocolate cake with rapsberry buttercream and all fondant. Not exactly what it should be, but it's what I could do.
Slightly larger version of a cake I did before, in orange. I had given away the experimental white version and she came back to request a larger version for her office party. 10" tier is white cake with guava buttercream filling, 8" is carrot cake with cream cheese filling, 6" is chocolate with raspberry buttercream filling. Buttercream icing.
Chocolate cake with buttercream decorations. I had a lot of orange icing left from another cake so I combined designs from Maplecakes and Subaru for a cake for the office mangagers at my daughter's school.
Yes, another turkey cake. It was a lot of fun to make - we took it to our church's fall festival. Thanks to Mrs.Missey for posting directions.
Wanted to try a tilted cake - but decided to make a "practice" cake before trying to make one for a customer. This is amaretto and almond (separate layers) with coconut buttercream icing. Not the greatest combinations, but like I said, this was an experimental cake.
My son had a field trip to the fire station, so we brought a cake! It's chocolate with buttercream and fondant - I did the shield after the design at the local fire station. It was a fun cake to make! Wish my photography skills were better :)
One Hundred Years Of Dreams
What was Sleeping Beauty dreaming of for those 100 years? What if she had been reading a book of fairy tales before she fell asleep? Her world melts down into the top of Cinderella's castle, which is in the clouds of Snow White's forest, which rests atop the Little Mermaid's world under the sea. As you can see, each princess is asleep, dreaming of their own true love. ( fondant/ beginning of idea from Debbie Brown's Sleeping Beauty)
Miss Holly's Cake
This is a white champagne cake with strawberry buttercream filling and fondant. Inspired by a southern pal of mine.
Larry's Gator Cake
Yellow almond cake with buttercream icing. Hand drawn logo on fondant. Thanks to Pinkflamingo and Rupnzel for the ideas and inspirations!!
Daisy Cake Finished
I uploaded an earlier version of this one and then decided it wasn't quite done, so added the bow and a little more detail on the butterfly.
White cake with guava and lime filling - fondant with fondant daisies and butterfly. Still working on getting the hang of fondant!!
