Yoda Lego Figurine
My son wanted an exact replica of a Yoda Lego figurine. I am not a fan of sculpting cake, but I made an exception for him.
This was a simple sheet cake with the batter tinted red, white, and blue on the inside. It was for a gathering. The fireworks are the shimmer dust that can be used for fondant, etc.
My daughter requested the design, colors, and decoration, and helped with most of it. This is my second stacked cake. I kind of wish I would have done the spires like the very top one (as far as having them stick up out of the cake), but my daughter was very thrilled so that is all that counts. French vanilla cake on bottom and cherry chip (with 1/2 marachino cherry juice in place of some milk). I also used Wilton decor for the "stones".
John Deere Cake
John Deere cake with buttercream frosting. I used the Wilton spray to airbrush--I am too cheap to buy the airbrush system.
This is my second time working with fondant. I am starting to kind of like it. I am not real skilled at it, but I was very happy with how this cake turned out (minus the scary little bulge from where the two cakes meet--I am worried about the warmth here/during the party).
Small Wedding Cake
This was for a couple that insisted on sheet cakes and just a small round cake to cut. I thought it looked silly on the huge table, but the topper made it look a LITTLE bigger (not shown, obviously). I have never done a wedding cake, and never plan to again. This was a favor. What stress!
This was a 9x13 white cake on bottom, buttercream filling, chocolate on top, covered in buttercream and my very first attempt using MMF. I was pretty pleased with how the MMF worked once I got it figured out how to handle it well. I was a little worried about trying it out, but I will definitely use it again.
Heart-topped cupcakes (made with Ghirardelli chocolate molded in molds--I am new to this); white chocolate cupcakes with almond buttercream
Heart Shaped Cookies
Heart shaped sugar cookies for a large order (goes with all the other valentine items posted in my pics)
Zoe From Sesame Street
My daughter is obsessed with Zoe, so I used the Elmo pan to rework it into a Zoe. The mouth was the only thing I wasn't crazy about, but I did it while looking at the actual doll and it matched pretty well what she actually looks like.
It Retirement Cake
Made for a lady who was retiring that worked at a help desk. My husband was carrying it into work and slipped on some ice and dropped it, along with the 24 cupcakes. Apparently, only the border pulled away. WHEW!!
