Black & Red Wedding
The bride wanted her cake to have the flowers and scrolls on it. Very simple indeed. The cake was marble. This was an extremely last minute cake, but she loved it. She had seen a picture, but, of course did not have it and tried to explain it to me.
This graduation cake was made with 18 silver dollars (washed well, of course!!) for the boy turning 18 too. I made the cap and diploma out of gumpaste and used embroidery floss for the tassel. The school colors are sliver, purple and black.
Striped Wedding Cake
Buttercream frosted with fondant stripes and fresh hydrangea flowers. White cake inside. Gum paste monogram.
This is my first attempt at fondant and a whimsical cake. I made this for my niece's grad. I used MMF. I need to work on it some more and also the cutting of the layers to get the whimsical look. She loved it anyway. Thanks to the tutorial on this site!!!!!!!!!!!!! Top is Lemon, middle is white with straw. filling, bottom is marble.
This is a white, chocolate, and marble cake. I made it for my hubby's 40th birthday. (I could not bring myself to be "mean"!!! lol) It is all BC on cake. The little man is figure piped from royal icing and the "world" is royal on a styroafoam ball. The motorcycle is a toy. Sorry for the bad pic, but it was before I got my new digital camera!!!
This was for my Granddaughter, who was turning 4. It is made from the wondermold pan and a 9" below. It was white cake with pink marbled throughout. All BC icing.
Lucky 7 Slot Machine
This was my attempt at a FBCT. I could not find a good pic of a slot machine, so I ended up using a real picture. There was so much detail that I could not get it all in. The customer was very happy with it and I guess that is what counts!!!!!! It was a strawberry cake with vanilla cream filling.
Sliding Down The Hill...
This cake was a german chocolate cake with germ. choc. icing as the filling. The hill was made from the wondermold pan. The little man was figure piped.
This is a 6x10x14 vanilla cake with vanilla cream filling. Iced in ivory BC icing. Ivy leaves are made of Gumpaste and drop flowers are royal icing. The fountain is tinted purple---we were waiting for the extension cord!!!!
I made this for the girl scout troop here. They were all moving up. It is white cake. Their theme was floral.
This was actually made for a woman. The white rosebuds did not show up very good in the pic. I traced the sheild and the main shape of the face and filled it in. It is all done with BC icing.
Barbie Doll Cake
This is the first doll cake I have ever made. It was actually sort of a joke for a girl graduating from high school. It is chocolate with a white 8" layer underneath, BC filling. It is iced in BC.
This was for a very small and casual western wedding. The 6x10 are white with just BC for filling and Choc with Choc cream filling. The horseshoes are carrot and confetti--no fillings. I don't know if you can see it in the photo, but they are on brown vinyl covered boards and I got some rope to put around the main cake. It is covered with brown and burgandy horseshoes.
Italian Creme Cake
I made this for a woman who had purchased these gumpaste flowers online and I made them into the vine using wire and ivory floral tape. She bought the birds in place of a traditional top. It is an Italian Creme cake with lemon curd filling and cream cheese icing. She wanted very simple. Nothing else on it. I wish I had a better picture, but.....
Floral Birthday Cake
My granddaughter, who was turning 3, wanted "flowers, LOTS of flowers all over the top--PINK Grandma". I made a white cake with bright pink marble throughout with fresh strawberry filling and fudge icing. She loved all the flowers.
This is 3 9x13 cakes, tapered, iced in buttercream. It was a pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese filling. The fish are made out of royal and hand painted. The straps are fondant. The lid is a styrofoam sheet frosted with buttercream. It is on a piece of marble.
This is a 6x10x14 french vanilla cake with BC. She wanted no filling, just icing. I did not care for the background color, but.......what can ya do?? The florist was supposed to spray the roses with blue, but she didn't.
