50Th Osu B-Day Cake
These are 2- two layer 1/2 sheet cakes cut and shaped into a #5 and #0 for a 50th b-day. The client was a HUGE Ohio State fan so we did the "0" like the letter O in OSU with Buckeye treats surrounding the cake. The #5 had five of the clients favorite lifetime hobbies on it....bicycling, camping, Scouts, elementary principal (edible image), and his kids (edible image). Got alot of orders for more OSU cakes at this b-day party.
55 Nickel Cake
These are 2- 6" cakes with an edible image of the front and back of nickles with BC icing to match. Did this cake in representation of a 55 yr old B-day. The cake is accented with hand cut strawberry shape roses with fresh mint leaves.
This is a 1/2 sheet zebra cake with BC icing with sugared candy decors and praying hands and an edible image. This cake was done in memory of my daughter's best friend whom we did the "Ally" logo cake also located in my photo gallery. Ally died of heart failure during her 3rd heart transplant at the age of 14 yrs. old. RIP ALLY
3D Baby Blocks
These are 3- 3 layer 6" square cakes al;l with BC icing. The rattle is made and shaped from truffle mix and a lollipop stick and ribbon was used for the handle. The booties are Twinkies cut and arranged into bootie shapes. The other baby decors are sugared candies.
Princess Crown Cake
This is a 10" triple stacked cake cut and shaped into a crown. The crown points are large strawberries dipped in purple chocolate and skewed into the cake to stand upright. The smaller crown points are Hershey's Dark Choc. Kisses. The purple beads are the ONLY non-edible item on the cake. I tried to do a mini crown for the 1 yr old baby out of a cupcake... it didn't come out as great as I hoped. The large "pearls" around the bottom of the cakes are strawberry Whoppers.
3D Princess Castle
6" cake for the castle tower, 10" cake for the castle base, all done in BC icing. Sugar cones with purple icing rolled in purple sugar. The flage and the banner were made on the computer and are th ONLY non-edible things on the cake. The castle tops are made out of pink strawberry wafers and DOTS candies on the tower.
3D Snail Cake
This is 2- loaf pan sizd Fr. Van cakes for the head and danish pastry Cinnamon roll for the body and tail all covered in BC. I used green Jello for the slime trail and also on the body to make it slimy. This cake was created from an 11 yr old's drawing as you can see in the picture. Tried to match it exactly with what I had to work with. This cake measured about the length of an 1/2 sheet board and 12" in height.
3D Tarantula Cake
A lot of research went into doing this spider...apparently tarantulas come in different sizes and colors. The client whom was 7 yrs old pick the Mexican Red Knee Tarantula out for his birthday cake. The legs are made and shaped out of homemade chocolate biscotti dough the body is made out of 6" & 8" oval red velvet cake... the client wanted it to look red inside for the internal "body parts" look. The fangs are made out of Tootsie rolls and the grass in which the spider is nesting is made out of sliced and baked tortilla shells and hand painted with green luster dust drizzle. The ants are fake plastics ones as I ran out of time to create them myself. The orange came out a little brighter than I wanted it too, so have to wait to the next one to perfect this cake and its colors. TFL!
All Yellow Mom's B-Day Cake
This was done for a client whose mother LOVED yellow. Its a 2 layer 8" yellow cake with butter cream icing. Tried to make a design that would work with using all yellow. Too much yellow for me. LOL
Dad's B-Day Cake
I had some left over cake and icing from a previous client's order so I left it up to my girls (13 and 5) to come up with whatever for their Dad's b-day. The 5 yr old did the top layer and the 13 yr old did the bottom layer. Not bad for their first cake together....apparently they paid attention to me doing my cakes and learned something. LOL!
3D Pirate Cake
This is a 1/2 sheet cake cut and shape to a pirate ship.....got a bonus on this cake, the client brought me the ENTIRE pirate ship kit so I didn't have to create too much for this cake. The barrels are Rolo candy, cookies for the rails, gold bars are Rolo in the foil, canon balls are Whoppers candy.This is all buttercream icing with chocolate icing accents. The front 1/2 of the haul has chocolate gold coins in it, so when they cut the cake the coins spill out. The ship came together nicely with the kit.... wish I had that available with the last pirate ship I did. I had to create and hand make everything on the last cake (its in my photo gallery). TFL!

I was fun to create seeing as it was my FIRST Barbie ever. TFL!
Functioning 3D Ferris Wheel
This is view of the ferris wheel I made. The wheel is out of Rice Krispies and the construction holding it is made out of Kinex. I was excited when we got it to spin around to give it a special effect. LOL! I usually make ALL edible cakes, but was pressed for time so I added details with circus decors I found. This was for my daughter's 5th birthday carnival party that included games with prizes, full concession stand including popcorn, cotton candy, corn dogs and MORE... We even had clowns and animal balloons. It was a great day and well worth the work!!!

This cake was done for a grooms cake in which he was a military man who worked on these tanks. It took about 4 hrs from start to finish including baking the cake.

This is a full sheet chocolate cake with Dark Chocolate Ganache filling. The pictures on the cake were a surprise to the clients husband as they took his Bronco and restored it for is b-day. I was just to show the pictures in order of completion of the project and put some kind of Bronco on the cake We hand drew the Bronco and filled it in. I love how the border came out.
Dora 2Pc Cake
Both cakes are 1/2 chocolate and 1/2 vanilla (zebra cakes) with butter cream icing. The little 6" cake was for the 1 yr.old to devour and the 12" cake was for the guest at the 1st year birthday party. The Dora face was drawn freehand and was filled in with a star tip. A little off without a pattern to follow.... but didn't turn out too bad.
Coral Present Wedding Cakes
These are 2- 10" square strawberry cakes with butter cream icing decorated to look like presents. I ONLY DID the PRESENTS.... used the brides bouquet ribbon to accent the presents. The brides's aunt did the other cake... which is leaning forward and off center a bit.
This was just some left over cake from another cake order I did. Used up the 10" and 8" layers of cake along with whatever colors I had left to use up. My kids thought it was great to have a "Just becuz cake" LOL Just thought I would post it to give someone some ideas to come up with something interesting. Nothing too creative here, just having fun cake.
Hand Carved Chocolate Logo Cake
This is a 2 layer 1/2 vanilla and 1/2 choc. heart shaped cake icing with BC and the Logo is hand carved out of a solid chocolate heart and filled with BC to give the cut out look. As you see I TRIED to match the logo on the shirt which was for a benefit to raise money for my daughter's friend to have a heart transplant at the age of 13. The little cake behind the logo is just a 6" cake with an edible image of who the benefit was for. She got her heart on Thanksgiving, and do well!
