Chocolate And Pink
A long time since I've decorated, so it's not very neat. Chocolate and pink MMF. Bottom layer is chocolate with ganache and vanilla cream. Top is yellow with lemon curd and buttercream.
Things were a lot simpler this year for birthday cakes at our house. I realize I didn't take a picture from the best angle. You can't see the cute flip flops very well.
I finally got a copy of the picture of the cake I made for my neighbor's shower a few years ago. I'm pretty sure it was from a Wilton Book. This was before I knew how to really smooth the buttercream. The decorations are fondant.
For some reason this was really hard. It took way too much time. I couldn't figure it out but it lead in part to a nervous break down. It was actually decorated by my kids. I just baked.
Hot Wheels Birthday
Hot Wheels Birthday Party. I had a little problem with the MMF drying. Ignore the Asthma medicine in the background. I could have done the cars better but my life was too busy and the 5 yr old boys didn't care.
This is for a school contest, The theme was underwater and the mascot is the Sharks. It is definitely not original, thanks to several on here for inspiration. But I loved the idea of the principal surrounded by sharks, esp since he is definitely barely holding his head out of the water in a school of over 1300 children. (yes you read that right)
My son wanted a Yeti Ice cream cake. The boys loved it. It's just a big hunk of MMF . The best part was I made the cake with Ice cream sandwiches and dingdongs. covered in cool whip. Not the fanciest but the boys thought it was great and it was the easiest ever.
Girls penguin birthday party cake. There is one penguin for each guest, about 2.5 in. each, cake is about 15" x 15" MMF cake and CMMF penguins. The pond is hard candy
I can't believe I made this one for FREE!!! It was for a neighbor who was supossedly down and out. More like lazy freeloading. Gumpaste flowers and fondant.
Stars And Stripes
The stars and stripes were made from Marzipan. Another one from like 15 years ago.
This was an icecream cake with ganuche on the top but I couldn't get it to spread fast enough on top of the icecream so its not very smooth. It was my ds birthday (christmas day)
Shower For 3 Couples
This was for my 3 nieces who were all getting married close together. gumpaste flowers.
These went with a small cake I made for the party. As usual, bad cameraing (no digital back then)
Easter Basket Cookies
I forgot to take pictures of the other cookies in the bouquet but I had these singles left over.
You can't see them very well with this picture but there is a gorilla, bear, lion and elephant. bad camera day, in fact most of my pictures get lost or something...
