China Doll- Orofino Distinguished Young Women Program Auction Donation
this cake was for the auction held at the Orofino Distinguished Young Women program auction they hold while the judges are deliberating to raise funds for the program. I had made the cake for their luncheon earlier in the day and brought this cake with us to act as an accessory for the luncheon cake (seen with the doll cake in another view) I later added chopsticks to her "hair" as an accessory but have not gotten a photo of it with that yet.
Orofino Distinguished Young Women 2012
the theme for the scholarship program was Oriental so I was prepping to make this cake a Pagoda cake- but the gumpaste tiles did not dry in time so last minute change brought this which i was very pleased with. Cake flavors are: Bottom- chocolate with raspberry filling- Middle layer- Strawberry with strawberry simple syrup infusion and Strawberry mousse, top square was Vanilla with Honey Lemon buttercream (top tower was chocolate with vanilla) everything including butter vanilla flavor mmf,same flavor bc icing, cakes and fillings from scratch. filling recipes all found here on CC. wording is Orofino Distinguished Young Women in chinese using Google Translate- as correct as i could get it.

Beth's Sweet 16 Daisy Cake
B-day girl wanted a cake covered with daisies and the color Teal! i had to abandon the topper i had prepared- it malfunctioned lol. bottom cake WASC (white almond sourcream cake) Top- Devils food chocolate- filling plain buttercream as requested. the blue shade was more greenish/ and looks like Actual Teal in person. the photo makes it look like a light or sky blue which its not. cake fondant is MMF, flowers are MMF/Gumpaste- 50/50 mix.
A Musical Birthday
Inspired by a similar cake created by amyluvschocolate ( http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1200455 ) thanks Amy for the inspiration and idea!

My Entry For Our Local Fair! Theme Proud Past, Bright Future!
this is my first venture in to making a cake like this. using Buttercream, mmf, gumpaste. Since its not being judged on flavor i skipped adding flavor to the mmf and bc. Chair made with RKT, figurines made with mmf/gumpaste. I'd like to thank the following, i "borrowed" a concept from each one's contribution and combined it into one: Inspireddecorator, Aine2, Emmy624, Imartsy, and Saxpetzi! thanks to those and everyone else for your help through forum and pm's to get me through this!!
Due to my son and niece graduating this coming june i thought this might be the last time for a while to be able to make her a birthday cake in person :) so i asked her what she wanted. she asked for a basketball with the # 21 on it in lime green.. i sought out additional cake ideas from cakecentral and used one idea from one design, another bit from another and combined them together. i had problems with the cake itself but the rest just fell together so nicely. the cake is iced with vanilla buttercream but is filled with Nutella mixed with buttercream. cake is triple chocolate fudge!
Hubby's Fathers Day Cake Raspberry Chocolate Dream!
Hubby requested for fathers day a chocolate cake with raspberry filling. so never having made raspberry filling before i attempted to fulfill his request to combine raspberry preserves with cream cheese frosting (his idea) well it comes out rather runny lol so i had to add some cornstarch (i plan on playing with the recipe later) this was piped between two layers of triple chocolate fudge cake, which was iced with said cream cheese frosting, then topped with raspberry preserves And the filling used between layers. it was Yu-Uh-UM! i can't wait to experiment with this concept mmmmm!
A Retirement Cake For My Father Inlaw Who Recently Retired From His County Sheriff's Office- He Will Be Deeply Missed By Many!
Cake inspired by MsCheeks's similar cake (only her's was better!) and many thanks to her help and guidance and simply listening to my frustrations lol. I tried to follow her design with fondant covered lid but my fondant wouldn't cooperate so in a last minute decision i went with butcher paper covered cardboard (i had to make the lid too! lol) Cake was half triple chocolate fudge and half carrot, with cream cheese filling and white chocolate buttercream. the donuts were a big hit with his fellow police officers. for those that cant read the expression it says "Retirement-world's longest coffee break!" thanks to my son Austin for his contribution in finding it onilne for me! lol. MMf "police caution tape". food coloring text.
Junior Miss Scholarship Pagent- Orofino Idaho- March 2009
Pagents theme was superheros-titled Marvel-us as in to marvel- us/you/me theme, i've had alot of confusion with many thinking it was about Marvel super heros- sorry its not despite the use of one of marvel's super heros :) I simply found many designs like this on CC- i wish i could give credit to all those designs that inspired me but there were so many! The spiderman theme layer was triple chocolate fudge-needed more spider webbing lol-Batman's layer was spice cake,& Superman cake was Yellow. Each layer had Orange Essence flavor creamcheese frosting,& was iced w/basic buttercream. the Super hero symbols were self created stencils and stenciled on the cake then piped in and cornstarched/patted flat.

Rough Ridin At 2!
My nephew was born on thanksgiving 2 years ago and i finaly got to make a cake for him even though i had to travel there to do it and ran in to alot of obsticles lol. Gotfrosted's ATV cake was the inspiration for this cake but finding atv's to put on the cake was impossible so I went with monster trucks. it was a rush job and the bottom cake wasn't the same consistancy as the top so it sank in the back (unseen in this photo!) given my own equipment i could have done a much better job. All in love!

A Global Birthday Part 1 (Repost)
this cake is very special for me as my husband helped decorate it with me. He did the continents and I did everything else. I included little tourist points with flags and toothpicks. Used a candy cane for the north pole of course; put in the bermuda triangle with one of the kids' mini airplanes lol. someof the flags said "Where are we anyways? Are we there yet? Is this trip really necessary? last stop for gas 50 miles" lol..

My First Official Wedding Cake
this is several years ago and was the only pic i could get at the time. leaf and vine motife; ivory color; edible glitter. lower top tier had to be enlarged due to the size of the bottom layers flower base- it could not be resized. was easier to just bake a bigger cake. bride to be helped make flower bouquet- mini bride and groom on top 2nd tier. only had one snaffu up on arrival- my hand smushed the cake and was easily covered by more frosting; vines and a turn to the back! lol
my first wedding style cake- clear twisty tierd legs. silk flower arrangements done by another aunt inlaw- mini wedded teddy bear couple on top tier. bottom tier baked in an angelfood cake pan; flower arrangement fit right in the already available hole! :) leaf and vine decoration with clear edible glitter.
