Hailey's Penguin Party
My 14 year old niece fell in love with fellow cc'er Virginia's Penguin Party Cake... so I just had to make it for her 14th birthday. Lemon cake with buttercream, fondant penguins, ice cream cone trees and an igloo made from the wondermold pan. I loved it because this was one that my daughter could help with which made it special. My niece and all her little girlfriends loved it! Thanks Virginia! The only change I made was the addition of hats, scarves, and earmuffs... but I liked it just as well without them.
My First Turkey Cake!
I always wanted to do a turkey cake so I finally did it and am quite pleased with the turnout. Can't wait for people to see it! This is spice cake with cream cheese filling and cinnamon buttercream and airbrushed. Didn't have time to make the garnishes so the garnishes are real parsley, cranberries and lemon slices. The stuffing is toasted pound cake. Used both sides of the egg pan and krispie treats for the legs/wings.

French vanilla cakes, cupcakes and smashcake with buttercream icing and filling for a darling little boy's first birthday. Airplanes are fondant with royal icing wings. Fondant stars and banner.
Baby Shower Clothesline Cake
This is a 10" two layer yellow cake with buttercream filling. Fondant clothes, buttons, baby, blanket and blocks with royal icing accents. Wish the photo showed the texture in the blanket. Thought that extra little detail seems to add so much to the cake in person.
This cake is a replica of Julien's beautiful guitar. Mocha cake - buttercream under fondant. Strings are jewelry wire. I didn't like that they wouldn't be edible, but they do look better than anything edible I could think of.
Birthday cake for a man turning 44 - these are his favorite 44's. His wife brought me a photo of his two favorite guns - she tells me they're 44's. White cake with fondant over buttercream. Gumpaste details.
Maddy's Tea Party!
Two 10" square chocolate cakes and the tea pot is a sports ball pan cake. Fondant over buttercream.

Sarah's Wedding Cake
Wedding cake for a friend. White cake 12", 9" and 6" - with fresh strawberry filling. Buttercream under off-white fondant with sugared fruit.
This is a marble cake, iced in buttercream and airbrushed. The pepperoni, green peppers, olives and mushrooms were made from modeling chocolate. I got the idea from this website to put the cake in the oven for just a very quick amount of time to let the white chocolate "cheese" melt ever so slightly and it really seemed to make a big difference.
Jewelry Box Cake
This is a cake for the woman who constantly challenges my cake decorating skills. If it weren't for her, I'm not sure I'd still be doing this. French Vanilla cake, buttercream filling, buttercream under fondant. Everything is edible. Her initials are on the lid using royal icing and then painted gold. The bracelet was the most time consuming part.
Flying The Coop!
This was for a retirement but I thought it would more likely be used for a birthday cake. Theme of the party is "Lynda's Flying the Coop" - She loves birds and birdhouses. 1/2 white & 1/2 chocolate cake covered in fondant. Bird is gumpaste. Wanted to do more with it but at 2am decided "It's done!"

This is white cake with buttercream filling. Fondant covered wine bottle - edible image with white chocolate shavings. Fondant "wood" box. Gumpaste grapes.
Mario Bros Cake
This Mario Bros cake was totally inspired by cakeladydi's Mario cake. Thank you!! This was two 10" round layers, the stem was a 4" layer, and the mushroom cap was half of the sports ball pan. Marble cake. Mostly buttercream iced/decorated, some fondant accents. Mario and Luigi are gumpaste figures. This was a fun one to make!
Andrew's Guitar With Flames
This was a cool guitar for an adorable 5 yr old who wants to be a rock star. He designed his dream cake. The cake was chocolate covered in buttercream covered in fondant. The "Rock On Guitar Hero" lettering was royal icing and the other was funky alphabet cutter letters. Decorated in fondant pieces.
Alabama Sports / Duffle Football Bag

Heather's Potato Chips
My daughter is totally addicted to these Lays chips. I had seen a wonderful cake someone had done of Ruffles and just adapted to Lays.
