Law School Graduation
Book cake I made for my brother's law school graduation. He and several friends hosted a party together which is why there is a generic "Congrats Grads" message. I thought six names would be too many. The names of the books are classes they all took, and the emblem on top is the law school's logo. I was going to do a grad cap, but they wear berets and that just seemed to complicated. I also meant to make a little diploma, but just forgot to. Oh well, everyone loved it anyways! Thanks so much to all of the members here who offered inspirations, tips and advice!
I made this for my nephew's second birthday. The design is from the Whimsical Bakehouse. SMBC with chocolate animals and topper.
Princess Birthday Cake
Cake for a friend's daughter's 3rd birthday. I took the easy way out and used a the Disney Princess DecoPak. SMBC, Fondant flowers
Pink And Green
SMBC, Fondant Decorations with Super Pearl Luster Dust. I've seen several cakes with wire with fondant balls, and I've been wanting to make one. I do think it would have looked better if the swirls had been thinner. Design inspired by TxAgGirl!
I made this for my brother's birthday. He's not a big sweets person, and he once said he'd rather eat a hamburger than have cake, so I thought I'd make a hamburger cake! It was a surprise, and he really loved it! I used a non-crusting buttercream, so I wasn't able to get the icing as smooth as I would have liked on the top bun.
A quick cake I made for my sister last year before she left for her semester abroad. She went to London, which is why there is a flag of England on the suitcase. Pink is her favorite color, and also actually the color of her suitcase.
Yellow Daisies And Bow
I saw this design on here and I thought it was really cute. Unfortunately, I forgot whose cake it was. First attempt at a bow...not very happy with it.
I made this for my brother's birthday. He spent last summer in the Netherlands, and loves Heineken. It was my first sculpted cake, and of course I thought it could be better. But my brother and his friends loved the cake. Thanks so much to amberhoney for the help!
Blue Polka Dots And Stripes Grad Cake
For my sister's college graduation. There was supposed to be an edible image of her school's seal in the bottom corner, but I waited until the last minute to have it printed off, and the printer at the grocery store where I have them made was broken. Oh well. She liked it anyways.
Blue Cross Cake
Baptism cake for my nephew. I got the idea for the cross from a cake I saw on www.pinkcakebox.com
