Smooshed Nose Tiki Cake
Made this for my cousin-to-be's tropical themed bridal shower. I thought the cake would fit in the box, but when I got to the venue the nose was all squished :( Cake still tasted good though. Alternated layers of chocolate and white cake covered in peanut butter chocolate ganache. It was VERY yummy!
Genny & Randy's Bridal Shower @ Work
Tiramisu, 12-10-8 beveled edge tiers. Pattern on the cake was inspired by the couple's bedding on their wedding registry. Big party for 2 wonderful co-workers, everyone loved the cake, people were coming back for seconds :). (Darn wilton pans though created a desing flaw in my setup, but that's the edge that's not facing the picture. ;) )
Sutton's 27Th Birthday Cake For Work
One of my co-worker's ordered a cake from me so that he could bring in a treat for work. This is supposed to be a copy of the 27 Kleenex racing car (NASCAR). This was my first FBCT, I wasn't too happy that it cracked on me, but it still turned out good enough for me. It's a marble cake with buttercream frosting, 11x15 sheet cake. Thank you to everyone that helped me find this car since I have no clue about NASCAR and who drives what car, etc.
Dave K. Retirement Cake Waukesha Electric Systems
Retirement cake for my husband's co-worker. He was with the company for 36 years. I didn't want to make a regular 'ole sheet cake. It says "On the Road to Freedom! Happy Retirement Dave!" Buttermilk Chocolate cake, 2 layers filled with vanilla pudding and 1 layer filling with butterscotch pudding.
Carrot Cake Bunny
This was a carrot cake that I made for fun. I decided to put a bunny on it in a carrot patch. This would be cute for easter (minus the spongebob wrapping paper)

We used pink writing to pick on a co-worker that was transferring departments. I never uploaded this cake when I made it so I can't remember what flavor it was.
Cupcakes For My Son's Class
Chocolate cupcakes with swirled regular and chocolate buttercream frosting and sprinkles on top. My son's school does star of the week so that each child gets a week to shine and feel special in school. They are allowed to bring a treat to school and my son wanted chocolate cupcakes. When I told him what I wanted to do he wanted sprinkles added to the top of them, so I said yes.
I made this cake for work for fun but it looks more like a wedding cake so I thought it best to upload in this category. (I made the topper myself) It is devishly good chocolate cake w/ strawberry filling and buttercream frosting. 14", 10", & 6" rounds. The leaves are made from fondant and are supposed to be red/orangish red mixed together.

Rob & Shirley's Cake- With Candles Lit
My rendition of wilton's "The Glow Endures". 14" round is chocolate amaretto cake with a seedless raspberry cream filling. The 10" round and the 6" round were done tiramisu style, all decorated with buttercream. Cake topper is the chinese symbol for double happiness, a good luck symbol common in chinese weddings. The bride was Chinese.
Shirley's Bridal Shower Cake
This is a two tier marble cake. The first tier is an 8" round and the second tier is a 6" round. The cake is frosted with cali4dawn's buttercream frosting and filled with white chocolate pudding. The top tier is decorated with cornelli lace (tip 2) and the second tier is just random dots with round tips 3 and 5. I am not very proud of my cornelli lace...I was doing it last minute on an empty stomach so my hand was not very steady as it could have been.
Congratulatory Cake For Getting Journeyman's
Marble cake frosted with cali4dawn's buttercream. 11x15 sheet cake made to look like brick wall for cousin who received his journeyman's. He works in the construction field and specializes in brickwork and stonework (he's quite good).
My Wedding Cake (And Also One Of My First Cakes)
I made 2 small wedding cakes for the dinner after our ceremony at the courthouse. This was also one of my first cakes that I decorated- just over 6 years ago now. There is lilac roses, white roses, bear grass, baby's breath, and freesia on the cake. There is also ivy around the cake on the cake board. As you can see, it's not very smooth and the writing is not very good either (and hard to read in the picture), but I saved myself money and had fun making it.

Baby Shower Cupcakes
A quick job, was busy packing for vacation...and told husband I would get these made before I left out of town for his work. It was for a lady at my husband's work. I went to the local grocery store to buy a big enough box and I then taped my "busines" card on the bottom of it....the lady of honor loved them so much and she saw the card...she told my husband that she may call me for some cakes :) Zucchine Spice and Orange Chip Dream cupcakes with dawn's buttercream icing. Wrote B A B Y on alternating rows
9X13 Sheet Cake For A Talent Show
Single layer bride's white cake, iced with a mix of cali4dawn's buttercream recipe and white chocolate buttercream frosting. My son helped with the pouring of ingredients into the mixer on this one, so becuz of this he calls it his cake. I can't wait to see how he will react when he sees how it was decorated. First time ever making strawberry tuxedos. The writing is made out of melted chocolate- cut the tip of the disposable bag too big so the writing is not as clean as I would like it 2 be, but it works

This is an Chocolate Amaretto cake- made the Amaretto cake out of cake mix doctor and added about 5 tablespoons of cococa powder to it. I wanted to make this for work and thought I would try my hand at our new logo. I did it freehand since I did not have time to do a frozen BCT. Still working on my smoothing techniques- tried something different this time.
Kim's Going Away Cake- Waukesha Electric (Husband's Work)
I made this large single layer sheet cake for a going away cake for my husband's work. It is 2 different flavors on each side. One is chocolate chip cake and the other is bride's white cake- both recipes are from the cake mix doctor. The 'w', 'y', and 'b' are made to look like how the company logo is, the 'w' is the part of the company logo. My husband's work requested a cake from me instead of having to get a store bought cake. :)
Sister In Law's Baby Shower Cake #2
This was a heart shaped cake to go along with the Noah's ark cake. Owen was born 4 weeks premature, but when you look at him now you would never guess because he is the same height as his older brother who is 2 years older than him.

This was a cake that I made to test the cake and frosting recipe. It was yummy! I thought it looked a little boring just sitting there iced so I decided to practice my cornelli lace on the top. The icing was extrememly soft to work with.
