Olivia The Pig
For a little girl's 4th birthday! Olivia the pig is a FBCT and then I over pipe to give it definition.
Angry Birds And Birds And More Birds
For my daughter's 25th birthday. She has fallen in love with this game on her smart phone. All the birds are made of rice krispie treats covered with candy melts. Would not recommend this again because when you shape the RKT it compresses them and they get very hard and chewy. They were so hard we joked about, if the sling shot had been real (it was actually molded with candy clay) we could use it to sling the birds right off her balcony at the passing cars. But we didn't!
Made for a community center's monthly birthday party for the kids. Experimented with poured buttercream icing. I think it worked to make the bears look like gummy bears.
Cinderella Castle Wedding Cake
....for a very small wedding w/ a Christmas Disney Theme. 9" and 6" white cake. Towers were made of ice cream cones, RKT and white chocolate. Had to travel 36 miles to deliver to a beautiful local destination. DH said, "Never again".
Chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream. Baked in the Wilton Wonder mold and then cut in half.
Made for the raffle for my church's preschool fundraiser. Red velvet with cream cheese filling. Used 1/2 filled wonder mold for top and 2-6" rounds for bottom.
24 dozen ice cream cone and popcorn cup cupcakes donated to the 2nd annual fundraiser dinner for my church's preschool. Man was my back aching that night. Good thing I only bake that much once-a-year.
For my nieces birthday. She is having a paintball party for her birthday. I had fun making this one. Used a lot of different ideas from other paintball cakes here on CC.
My first fondant class. I loved it! Ruthy at Cake Supplies Depot is an amazing teacher.
Torched sugar on 3 different layers. Yum! Added Creme Brulee coffee creamer to the cake in lieu of water and also added to the BC. More Yum! Was trying to make it look like a bowl of creme brulee.
The Flying Jolly Roger
This is our family's 2nd year entering the Rotary's Gingerbread Extravaganza fundraiser. We won 2nd Place!
12 Squared Times 2 =
288 cupcakes! My biggest project so far. This was all donated to our church's preschool fundraiser. Made the stand out of foamcore boards and mini coke glasses filled with M&Ms. The theme was Candyland. There were over 400 in attendance. Also made the Apple Basket Cake for the raffle.
Chili Chocolate Cupcake Cake
I have been dying to try out this recipe. Dark chocolate cake with ancho chili powder right in the batter. You can't really taste the chili until after you finish but then, POW, you feel the sensation on the back of your tongue afterwards. It's not hot, just a warm sensation. Meant to make dark chocolate icing but accidentally grabbed the milk chocolate chips instead. The chili's on top were picked from my ornamental pepper plant, just for looks (or warning). LOL
Strawberry & Chocolate
Fresh strawberry cake covered with cream cheese icing and chocolate ganache between layers. The ganache inside was a surprise for the birthday girl......my daughter! The tiara was made of semi-sweet Ghirardelli chocolate, at her request, because she doesn't like white chocolate. lol
Cream Cheese Flowers
Red velvet cake with cream cheese icing. I actually think I have overcome the dreaded cream cheese sliiiiiiiiiiide. Finally found that adding powdered DreamWhip really does stabalize the icing and it crusts really well. I was even able to make some of the icing stiff enough to create the Plumeria flowers for this cake. Thanks indydebi! TFL
