Ymca Pool Grand Opening
French vanilla cake with BC icing - rice krispy houses covered in fondant - Wilton shimmer gel for the water effect - made this for our local Y's new aquatic pool complex grand opening - made to look like artist's rendition drawing.
Fondant covered cake - fondant accents including baby on top. Thanks to many different pictures on this website for your host of ideas!!
50Th Birthday Cake
Made this for a co-worker's husband's 50th birthday. Chocolate fudge cake, with white chocolate buttercream and MMF. Used a new liquid shiny gold spray made just for airbrush for the top, bottom & accent pieces - worked really well!
Princess Castle Cake
Just finished this cake tonight for a birthday party tomorrow - used the Wilton Castle cake set, and it was definitely a bugger to work with, and took longer than I anticipated. Buttercream w/ fondant accents. TFL!
Dad's 61St Birthday Cake
Made this for my father's 61st birthday this weekend (hence the LXI on the "tag"). Dark chocolate fudge cake with mint buttercream icing, and fondant decorations. Got template for the collar from the Wilton website.
Thomas Birthday Cake
Last minute cake for my nephew: buttercream decorations w/air brush coloring; purchased Thomas cake topper at a local supply store.
35Th Anniversary Cake
This is a recreation of my parents' original wedding cake, for their 35th anniversary this weekend. Can't wait to see their faces tomorrow when they see it!! Only thing different is the topper, which I purchased from Wilton, but is similar to their original. All buttercream, with royal flowers.
Retro Martini Cake
Done for one of my best friend's birthdays - she wanted the cake to match the colors/patterns on her "evite"!!
Duckie Cake With Coordinating Cupcakes
The cupcakes that we did to supplement the cake. Each child got to take home their own rubber duckie!
Rubber Duckie, You're The One!
Cake for a baby shower this past weekend - the faucet handles actually worked and turned!! Fondant covered cake - wilton shimmer gel for the water - luster dusted fondant balls for the bubbles - only thing inedible was the rubber duckie! Special thanks to Salpi and her cake titled "Anita's Ducky Cake" for the inspiration!!!
Chesapeake Bay Cake
Cake for Boss' Day - she LOVES the bay and has a house on the water. Buttercream icing, with granulated brown sugar & graham cracker crumbs mixed for "sand"; white chocolate seashells, dusted with assorted luster dusts; rest of the scene is from dollhouse furniture from a local craft store!
Cornelli Lace Birthday Cake
Needed a quick cake for my grandmother's birthday - threw this one together in about an hour!! Buttercream with fondant rolled roses and fondant lace at bottom (dusted with luster dust, but doesn't really show up well in pic.)
Twins Baptism Ii
Another view of the cake - plus the cupcakes that she requested to accent the cake!!
Special cake for our friends' baptism of their twins (boy & girl). Chocolate fudge cake with mint buttercream filling - covered in buttercream & fondant.
Ice Cream Birthday Party
Chocolate fudge cake with buttercream icing & decorations. Made this for my friend's daughter's 4th birthday, she was having a make-your-own-sundae party and wanted a cake to go along with the theme! Special thanks to "Cupcakequeen" for the original idea!!
Carly's 1St Birthday
Cake I did for a 1st birthday this past Labor Day weekend - only direction that the customer gave was that she wanted pink & green!! Used a mish-mosh of different ideas that I've seen here on CC - thanks to everyone for such awesome ideas that all contributed to the cake!
Megan's 1St Birthday
Cake for my daughter's 1st birthday!! Each tier was a different flavor, all covered in buttercream and then fondant with fondant accents. I tried to make the royal Icing tiara, but it shattered right before I placed it on the top of the cake!! So we improvised with an extra tiara bought for her to wear that day.
Pink Flowers - Three Tier
Made for a bridal shower this past weekend. Copied (but scaled down) from a marmaladecakes design on this website!! French vanilla cake, with strawberry filling.
Made for a little boy's naming ceremony - french vanilla cake with chocolate mousse filling; buttercream iced, with fondant accents.
Texas Hold'em poker cake for my brother's birthday - he loved it!! My husband plays poker too, and helped me select the right cards for a tense "show-down" for the last two hands of cards!! Cake is half chocolate-fudge, half fudge-marble - with chocolate buttercream middle and vanilla buttercream over the rest. All fondant decorations, with exception of the beer can candles!!
Just finished this cake this afternoon - bottom layer is chocolate fudge cake with cookies-n-cream center, top layer is french vanilla with banana cream center. Cross is Wilton (resin) - pearls are edible!
Made these for a baby shower this week - this was taken from the Wilton 2006 Yearbook. Iced in buttercream, and then fondant accents.
