Vintage Baby Carriage Cake
This cake was huge! The basket is all cake and would have fed over 60 people. I bought a carriage, disassembled it, made a new handlebar and frame for the hood, and attached a masonite piece for the basket cake to rest on. Hood is fondant. This pic was taken after the 2-hour delivery...there was a little damage but not too bad. TFL!
Vintage Button Cake
Dummy cake covered in textured fondant, airbrushed, with all fondant accents. Buttons and key are all hand-sculpted
Sculpted leopard...measured 15.5" high and 30" long!! head and belly are rkt, the rest is cake...covered in fondant, lightly brushed on icing for texture, and then airbrushed. tfl!
Royal Icing Bridgework
This is my second attempt at bridge/extension work with royal icing. Each section is a double bridge; didn't line up perfectly so it looks fuzzy! tfl! I estimated the number of strings at over 2300, not counting the ones that broke and had to be done over!
Photography Studio Opening
This was for my friends' grand opening of their photography studio. Too bad I didn't notice until getting this picture back that the top tier is leaning!! Ooopsies...and, lesson learned....airbrushing a stencil on cake is not easy. Camera is rkt. TFL!
Do You See What I See?
Practice cake covered in fondant; face is sculpted fondant underneath; gumpaste roses, scrolls done by hand with food color pen. tfl!
FOr two people graduating from 2 different schools...was told to just combine their school colors...gumpaste diploma, fondant everything else, iced in BC
Sex & The City!
First time making a shoe..had a couple practice ones going at the same time to "test" on...Everything is edible except the zebra ribbon. tfl!
Iced in buttercream; fondant flowers and letters; fondant flamingoes (sp?) and leaves are hand-cut...tfl!
All fondant. Letters were hand-cut and hand-painted; border hand-painted...a lot harder than I thought to get the logos correct and on the cake without the fondant distorting! In retrospect, I would have done a lot differently..oh well...tfl!
Large Mouth Bass
For my husband for Father's Day! Fish is carved cake covered in handpainted fondant; fins are gumpaste, and the "dock" is fondant. Thanks for all the inspiration!
