Scooby Doo Cupcakes
My son wanted cupcakes instead of a cake for his 4th birthday - super easy and everyone liked them! He got the one with the large Scooby candle on it!
Brett's 3Rd Birthday
I made this Thomas cake for my son's 3rd birthday. Buttercream with edible image.
This is a half sheet graduation cake I made this past weekend. I tried an all shortening BC recipe for the first time and it was actually crusting too fast for me. Side border style inspired by Cakery.
Father's Day 2008
This is the Father's Day cake I made for my DH. He has a Victory motorcycle that we just got back this weekend from being repaired and as he is also a firefighter, I thought the theme was a fun one to make. Iced in BC with an edible image of the Victory logo. I made the flames by using icing plugs of red, orange and yellow icing all together in one bag with a leaf tip.
Wedding Cake And Cupcakes
These are 6", 9" and 12" tiers iced in BC with RI flowers that are sprayed with PME Pearl Lustre spray. I also made 6 doz. matching cupcakes.
Margarita Cupcakes For Cinco De Mayo
I found a margarita cake recipe that I wanted to try so I made these to bring to work for Cinco de Mayo. They are filled with whipped cream and topped with lime IMBC. I used my new rainbow disco dust on top but it is difficult to see how glittery it really was from the picture.
I donated about 130 mini cupcakes to a school fundraiser for a friend's son. The cupcakes are white and chocolate cake with vanilla, raspberry and chocolate BC. The raspberry BC is topped with pink sanding sugar and the vanilla BC is topped with pink iridescent disco dust that I used for the first time. It does not really show up very well in the picture but it is very sparkly - LOVE IT!
I made this cake for my son's 2nd birthday party. It is WASC iced in BC with plastic airplane candle holder accents that I purchased online.
Princess Birthday Cake
This cake was for a 4 year old's princess birthday party. Her mom was going to put a tiara on top but I did not get a picture. It is a white cake with bavarian cream filling iced in BC with fondant accents. I painted the smallest stars with a mixture of antique pearl luster dust and lemon extract. I sprinkled edible glitter on top for some sparkle.
I made these for someone's last day at work. They are WASC cupcakes with raspberry BC filling and lemon BC. I was just trying out some flowers and I topped them with white/clear edible glitter for a little sparkle.
Wedding Shower Cupcakes
I made these cupcakes for my friend's wedding shower to match the invitations and decorations. They are white cake with raspberry whipped cream filling and lemon BC.
I made these cupcakes for a co-worker's birthday. Chartreuse/bright green is her favorite color. They are WASC cupcakes iced in IMBC with royal icing flowers.
Tim And Kelly's Wedding
This was my first wedding cake. I'm so glad it is done - I was so nervous it would be crooked (this was the only cake I've ever stacked other than a golf ball cake). It is all BC with gum paste roses and silver ribbon. The cake itself is WASC with strawberry BC filling. The tiers are 6", 8", 10" and 12".
High School Graduation
This is a half sheet cake I made last weekend for a graduation. I also made 2 dozen coordinating cupcakes. I have never had more problems with a cake before and it should have been simple. My original design didn't work out, it was uneven, BC crusting too soon/not crusting enough issues...the list goes on. But I think it turned out OK in the end - the person I made it for was happy so that is what counts.
This is WASC cake tinted pink to look like the inside of a watermelon, chocolate whipped cream filling and iced with IMBC. I used mini chocolate chips for the seeds. It is for a 4th of July BBQ that we are going to.
Father's Day 2007
I made this cake for dessert for Father's Day. It was chocolate fudge cake torted to 4 layers with cookies and cream filling. The icing is the chocolate syrup frosting recipe I found here on CC - made it for the first time. I used white and yellow candy melts to get light yellow to drizzle over the top.
I made this for my MIL's birthday. She likes purple and blue so this is what I came up with. It is white chocolate cake with strawberry filling, strawberry IMBC and fondant accents. This was my first time making ribbon roses.
These are lemon cupcakes filled with bavarian cream and iced with lemon BC. The daisies and drop flowers are RI.
Fire Department Union Anniversary
This was a full sheet (half yellow half chocolate cake) for my husband's fire department. Their union was celebrating it's 75th anniversary. The IAFF logo is a FBCT. Everything is BC and I used Hershey Kisses for the center of the roses.
Gibb Baby Shower
This is a baby shower cake I made for a shower my mother-in-law was going to. It is an edible image with BC. I made it to match the invitation that is in the lower right hand corner of the picture. It was supposed to be very gender neutral.
Golf Ball Cake
I made this cake for both my husband's and dad's birthday. They both golf so this was fun to make for them. I used the end of a glass candy thermometer to make the dimples on the ball. We had to drive about 50 miles to my parents' house and I thought for sure it would fall apart before we got there but it was OK (I did dowel it).
Elmo 1St Birthday
I made this cake for my son's 1st birthday party. Elmo is a FBCT to match the invitations/decorations.
I made this birthday cake for a co-worker who loves chocolate. It is chocolate cake with raspberry filling and chocolate BC. I made a chocolate bowl on top by molding chocolate in a mini tart pan that I later filled with chocolate covered cake balls (but didn't get a picture).
Pink Pirouette Cake
I made this cake for my boss' 50th birthday. Pink is her favorite color. It was yellow cake with raspberry filling and lemon raspberry BC. I used pirouette cookies all around the outside, inspired by some beautiful cakes I saw on CC. The roses are Satin Ice fondant brushed with Antique Silk luster dust.
Pink & Brown Cupcakes
I made these cupcakes for my friend's 30th birthday party. They are white chocolate cupcakes with raspberry mousse filling. Brown is obviously chocolate BC and pink is lemon raspberry BC. Both are topped with dark chocolate raspberry mini-truffles dipped in cocoa.
