Mi State Graduation
Not traditional MI State colors (except for grad cap on top). All buttercream with fondant accents
Army Helmet Cake
This cake was made for a woman who is accused by her co-workers of being too intense at work, and they joke that she's wearing her "Captain Intensity Helmet." She turned 50 so the number 50 was put on the front. All buttercream, including strap and roses. TFL.
Made for a basketball fan. It's two 10" layers with an 8" on top, carved and frosted in buttercream
Piano Birthday Cake
This was for a piano player at an event at U of M. It's a little hard to see the white keys in the photo.
German Shepherd Cookie Basket
This was a basket made for a woman who wanted to give it as a thank-you gift for someone who had given her thousands of used tennis balls for her dogs to play with. Apparently they each go through two tennis balls a day!
3-Tier With Fondant Appliques
This is a white on white fondant cake with molded fondant appliques and piping, then airbrushed with pearl shimmer. TFL.
Classic Pooh Birthday Cake
The customer wanted a statue recreated in chocolate for the top of the cake. Pooh made of modeling chocolate painted with petal dusts and cocoa powder, butterflies made of hand-painted gumpaste.
My first carved armadillo. Made it for a going away party for a couple moving to Texas. All edible. Hand-painted fondant.
Sweet 16 Cake
fondant covered, all accessories are gumpaste, feather boa glued to cake board, edible images used on concert tickets and CD case
This was made for a dentist's retirement party. I wasn't thrilled about how the tooth cake turned out, but I liked the gumpaste pieces I made to go with it. Logos are edible images. Everything is made entirely of gumpaste.
Retro-Looking Geometric Circle Cake
I didn't like the colors in this cake, but the client chose them. Ugh! I added some sparkle to help distract everyone from the awful avacado green.
New House Basket
Realtor ordered for her client. One cookie designed to look like the house that was just sold, one welcome mat, one "sold" sign, one mailbox with the family's name, and some flowers.
Lion Face Cake
Customer was coming back home from an African safari on his birthday. Freehanded in buttercream.
