30 Years And Cruisin'

There's a Cincinnati flying pig with a Reds cap and Bengals jersey. Gumpaste topper. They grey car was made from a mold I made from with a matchbox car. Cinn Swirl, Choc Fudge and WASC cake flavors with buttercream. Thanks for all the previous cake inspirations for this. It was such a big hit since all of the details were so personal.

Sweet Baby Doll
This was actually for my mother's 70th birthday - she loves baby dolls (thought it looked more like a baby shower cake than a birthday cake). Gumpaste head (from mold) and back part of the bassinette (used soccer ball pan as mold), pastel blue, yellow, pink swirl cake with buttercream filling.. She wouldn't let us cut it at her party because she just wanted to look at it for a few more days before she cut it... so far it's still intact!

White cake covered in fondant for the bowling ball. It was two of Wilton soccer pans with a round cake in the middle carved slightly to make the ball perfectly round (they need more servings than the sportsball pan provided). Pins were french vanilla cupcakes with NFSC pins with fondant icing.
Queen Mary 2 Cruise Ship
For a friend's parents 50th anniversary party. They are getting ready to go on this ship. Yellow cake at top, Chocolate for the bottom and buttercream under fondant. Railings are fondant and royal icing.
Cake for my son who's the biggest Alabama fan. Chocolate cake with buttercream under fondant. Fondant accents. Had a hard time with this because I think maybe the sizes of pans I was told to use was wrong or maybe my imagination wasn't good enough. I used two 8" rounds and a sports ball pan. The sports ball cake was so small compared to the 8" rounds. Next time I'll use either a pyrex bowl or possibly the soccer ball pan.
Mickey & Minnie Mouse
For a friend's adorable daughter. These were designed after the birthday girl's stuffed animals. 10/3/4 oval pan with 2 mini wondermold cakes for the bodies and no-fail sugar cookies with royal icing for the heads. Fondant arms, legs and details. Marble cake.
