Luggage Wedding Cake
My favorite cake I've done to date! 2 12x18's one 11x15 fondant covered to look like distressed luggage
ducky cupcakes for a baby shower, Buttercream. Large round tip for body and small leaf tip for bill and feet.
Underwater On Fish
pulled suger, royal icing, chocolate shells, marbled fondant. 6, 9,12 inch . Made to use the fish bowl for a stand. This was re-set up at home the day after a wedding fair so the water looks a little cloudy. There is a beta fish in the bowl!
cut out of 2 11x15 sheet cakes. Buttercream, royal icing flowers, tip 104 ruffle. I got the idea from googling "40th birthday cakes"
Dipped in white choc, piped in royal icing, dipped in glitter. 3, 4 and 5 inch. Thanks to all the cookies on this site for ideas!
For a halloween party. Buttercream, airbrushed. Short pumpkin- bundt pans, tall pumpkin- 2 pyrex cassaroles+2 8inch rounds, small pumpkins- mini wonder pan. Heating core for stems. Buttercream acorns.
This was my first attempt at a real cake shaped like my daisy cake. I decided it is a unstable design. It was really leaning forward by the time they did the cake cutting ceremony. I was praying they would hurry up before it fell over! :) I used 2 inch styrofoam to make the tiers extra tall. Fondant with royal icing lillies.
Oval cake dummies. Fondant covered. Spackeled with buttercream and then dusted with disco dust( love the stuff!)on the back half, embossed with snowflakes on the front half, then dusted with sliver. Royal icing snowfakes dusted with both the disco and silver cascading down the front. Took the ideas from flowergirlMN and sugarshack to make this.
Jack O' Lantern
Made from 2 8" rounds and 2 pyrex casserole dishes. Buttercream airbrushed. Had a blast making this. For a 7 year olds birthday.
Duck Baby Shower
9x13 torted into 4 layers, FBCT for duck and banner, airbrush puddle. I covered the cake board with wrapping paper and then clear contact paper. That worked well and I'm excited to be able to match themes!
11x15 base. I baked the mug in a soup can. Buttercream everything except the golf balls and mug handle. Handle-foamcore covered in buttercream, golf balls- plastic :) . Airbrushed. I didn't put any support under the mug because I didn't think it was that heavy, but it feel over on the way delivering it, so I had to go home and make another and put support under it. Luckily, I had baked 2! Lesson learned- better to be safe than sorry!!
3- 11" rounds cut to shape. Buttercream basketweave, fondant blanket, real marshmellows, royal icing flowers, handle- fondant covered foamcore, raised lid- buttercream covered foamcore . I wasn't really looking forward to this cake because I thought it would be boring, but I had so much fun doing it!
1-9x13 and 1-11x15 were used to make this cake. Buttercream with fondant accents. There is a weak spot in the design right behind the cab where more support is needed to keep the cab from leaning backwards. Good learning lesson! :)
My first square fondant cake. I was way stressed while doing this cake. Each tier is extra tall. There are 2-3 layer layers in each tier separated by cardboard. And this is the first time I had to assemble a stacked cake at the reception hall. I wasn't sure how it would hold up, but everything went fine!
Football Camo Cake
9 inch round torted. small ball pan for baseball, football sculpted out of 2-5" rounds and 1/2 a small ball. buttercream icing. The mom said " my son likes baseball, football, camo and his favorite color is red. They don't all have to be on the cake..." :)
Thanks to the inspiration on the margarita cakes on this website! 9x13 torted covered in buttercream and airbrushed. jello in the glass that I beat with a hand mixer to break it up. Sports ball pan for big bowl and small ballpan for the little bowl.
7/7/07 Wedding Cake
This idea was from a wilton wedding cake book. 14'', 10", 7" rounds with push in pillars. buttercream icing, royal icing lillies and piping. Rose luster dust painted on some of the lillies. 2 8" satalite cakes. ( they were supposed to be totally plain, but I couldn't help but put something on them :) )
14", 10", 6", with fountian. Buttercream icing with scrolls and simple flowers highlighted with an airbrush and then hit with a little sparkly luster dust.
Simple Lace And Roses
8, 6 inch rounds. Buttercream covered with ivory fondant. Royal icing lace. Fresh roses.
