Optimus Prime Transformer
2 layer 1/2 choc. 1/2 white 12" x 18" sheetcake with BC icing. Full top is a FBCT with a sqiggly star tip flame border. Bottom border is hard to see in pic but it is designed to match the blocks on the Transformer's hand.
Hearts & Roses 25Th Anniversary
6" & 12" heart shaped cakes decorated with buttercream icing. The sides are decorated with RI, the beads are buttercream. All silver items are painted with Luster Dust. I made the roses, leaves and baby's breath from gumpaste. Thanks to Sweetgurl for the inspiration from her gorgeous cake.
Jordyn's First Birthday
White cake with buttercream icing. I did the whole top as a FBCT and then added borders to "spruce" it up.
Rocking Horse Sheetcake
White cake with buttercream icing. I originally didn't plan to put roses on the top but somehow the corner accidentally got squashed. It actually looks better with the roses than it did without them.
Wilton Course 2
I've never taken a Wilton course but I've always loved the look of the cake that is made during the course. I'm glad I finally had the opportunity to make one.
Happy Days Are Here Again
White cake iced in b/c with fondant record and RI label. The sides are decorated with RI musical notes painted with Luster Dust. The 2007 is foamcore piped over with RI and painted with Luster Dust.
Will Is Over The Hill
Cake is covered in B/C icing. All decorations are gumpaste. He is a big UK fan so rather than making flowers for the "green" side, I piped UK on the sides in blue. Then on the "gloom" side I piped UK in black.
Baby Einstein Catepillar
All B/C icing. I made the circles so round by doing a method similar to a FBCT (where the back is the front). I made them one at a time. When the B/C was partially frozen I cut it with a 4" circle cutter. Then I refroze the circle. Once completely frozen I placed them right-side-up on the cake. For the face, I just built up the icing on parchment paper and smoothed it with a sponge paint roller, then froze it.
Baby Einstein "mimi" Smash Cake
This was a smash cake to go with the Baby Einstein catepillar. The whole top is a FBCT.
Rylee's "cake" Cake
I made one like this a few weeks ago and quickly got an order for another one. The cake is all buttercream icing. The candle is white chocolate clay.
This is a full top FBCT. After I put the frozen FBCT on the cake I added some white "caps" to the water and swirled Corn Syrup on the water to give it a wet look. Thanks to "darkchocolate" for her help of achieving realistic looking water.
Soccer End Of Season 2007
The soccer ball was 2 halves (using 1/2 soccer ball pan) of white cake with BC icing. (Caution ~ the lines on that pan do not match up for a full 3-D soccer ball!) The bottom was 1/2 chocolate & 1/2 white baked in a hexagon pan. They are decorated in BC icing. The names are all RI painted with white Luster Dust. The stars are foamcore covered in Fancy Foil. The center dowel goes through all layers.
Faith's 3Rd Birthday
Faith's mom wanted a cake to look like one of her toys (a toy "cake" purse). The cake is yellow with buttercream icing. I used white chocolate clay for the candle on top.
The Birthday boy wanted a camouflage cake. I made this with buttercream icing and a #12 tip for the center & camouflage. The green border is #5 dots. The brown border is #9 dots.
Father's Day Crossword Puzzle
The most challenging part of this cake was getting the names and words to work out. My handwriting leaves a lot to be desired but I threw this together at the last minute for our Family cookout. I have another pic of this cake without the border. I couldn't decide which I liked best.
High School Musical For A Princess
This theme was a very fun challenge. The young girl wanted a 3-tiered High School Musical cake but wanted the words to say "Happy Birthday Princess Abigail". The cake is iced in buttercream. The curtain is also bc. The rest (stars, music notes, font, and tiara) are all royal icing painted with Luster Dust. I piped dots over the wording with a #3 tip to resemble the light bulbs.
This is a full-top FBCT. The line border and wording were also a part of the FBCT but I decided to go over them with a #3 tip after the FBCT was on the cake.
Baby Animals #2
I had 2 baby showers this weekend with the same theme. This one doesn't have as much detail. This is one large FBCT. Cake is 1/2 strawberry & 1/2 white.
Baby Animals #1
Cust. wanted cake to match invitations. The icing colors didn't look this dark but it showed up darker in the pic. This is one large FBCT.
Graduation Cake (Chelsea)
White cake with buttercream icing. Freehand design. The graduate loves to play golf.
