Scout Christmas Cake
I did this cake for my son's Boy Scout troop Christmas party. The figures are piped out of BC.
Harvest Fest Cake
This cake was my first paying customer cake. It was for a Harvest Festival at a church. I made the pumpkins and leaves out of fondant with a little gum tek added. I airbrushed the color on the leaves and then piped the vines. I charged $32 for the cake but gave a 20% first time buyer discount, so I got $26 dollars for it. Which probably worked out to about $3 and hour. Heehee
This cake is from the Wilton Celebrate with Fondant book. It was my first time to make fondant sculptures. I had a lot of trouble with stickiness, probably due to it being late August and hot as flugums. I would do some things differently the next time around, but overall, I was happy. It got my a blue ribbon at the county fair.
This cake design is from the Wilton Fondant and Gumpaste course. It was not one of the grand finale cake designs, but I liked it better than the other designs, so my instructor let me do it. There are forty!!! daisies on this cake. Needless to say, I got pretty good at daisies by the time I was done.
