Rocky Horror Lips Cake
This is for a 17 yr old having a Rocky Horror Picture Show themed Halloween/Birthday party. I used a 12" round and cut it in half and stacked it. Then I just did a little carving to make the shape. It is white cake w/BC under the fondant. I learned a few things so that's always a plus.
I made this for my friend's dad for his Scorpio birthday. It was challenging, but I'm mostly happy with the way it turned out.
Joker Face Cookie Cake
A cookie cake for the 16 year old across the street. He wanted just the joker's face. I think it actually turned out pretty well.
1St Birthday Princess Cake
This is a 1st birthday cake for a friend's little girl. Her mom wanted a princess theme so this is what I came up with. I was going to make a white chocolate tiara, but the white chocolate wouldn't cooperate. I just used fondant to make a crown. Both cakes are french vanilla with a white chocolate cappucino filling. The pink layers are BC, and the white is fondant. Everyone loved it!
Purple Butterfly Wedding Cake
I made this for a friend whose theme was butterflies and the color was purple. The cake was a little more purple than I intended, but they loved it so that's what matters. I made wafer paper butterflies and attached them to wires. My new Kitchen Aid broke down in the middle of this cake. It was very frustrating. The accents are purple fondant painted w/petal dust. They had their own topper.
This is my "how to decorate a cake in 20 minutes" cake....lol. I only had a short amount of time between the time I got off work and when my son's school party started. I copied the design from his Valentine Notes.
This is my son's b-day cake from last year. It's BC icing w/some fondant accents and a few royal icing premade accents. The towers are paper towel tubes covered in foil, then iced. All the kids loved it.
I made this for a friend's b-day. I made it really quickly because I didn't have more than a few hours because of work. It's a white cake w/BC icing. Fondat accents w/a little lustre dust, pearl dust, and shimmer dust.
Cowboy Birthday Cake
This was a last minute cake for a friend's mother in law. The accents are fondant w/silver lustre dust. Chocolate cake w/chocolate BC.
Footprint Baby Shower
This was the cake from hell. I iced the whole thing in BC but hated it so I went out and got fondant to cover it. The fondant didn't want to go on smoothly around the bottom, but all in all, it was okay. Everyone at the shower loved it. The bottom tier was chocolate w/Godiva liquor filling, and the top was white chocolate w/white chocolate filling. I hand painted the footprints w/Pearl Dust. There were 4 plaques in all around the bottom tier. There's also a sleeping baby ladybug on the top.
1960 Impala Back
This is the back of the Impala cake. I used transparency sheets to make the top of the car. I got miniature soda cans and trailed them from the bumper w/kite string. I thought it was cute!
1960 Impala Front
I made this as the groomette cake for a friend's wedding. I think it turned out pretty well. Not perfect, but I still liked it. I got lots of complements, and our friends loved it. It is chocolate cake covered w/fondant. Gumpaste accents w/luster dust.
First Wedding Cake
I am very proud of this cake. The chocolate curls nearly killed me. Thanks to Nati for the great tutorial. The 2 brides loved the cake, and I got lots of complements. We attended the wedding as we are friends of the couple.
This is a cake I made for the Relay for Life Silent Auction. The theme is walking across Texas, and our team is the Roadkill Cafe. We thought this would be an awesome donation for the auction. It's red velvet cake and BC icing covered in fondant. I used the Wilton ColorMist in black to spray the color on, It was so much fun to make.
I made this for my son's school Christmas party. All of the kids and parents loved it. The kids loved getting to pick a piece of candy to eat too.
These are my first BC flowers. The roses were pretty hard, but I finally got the hang of it. I'm sure they will improve over time. The customer loved it!! That's what matters.
I did these along with Spongebob as favors for my son's b-day party. They were a hit. Chocolate chip NF w/antonia's icing
I did these as favors for my son's b-day party today. I put them in a bag w/a Patrick cookie. The kids and parents loved them! NFSC w/antonia icing
This is my first stacked cake. It was a challenge. It was also my first layered/torted cake. Bottom tier is chocolate w/BC filling. Middle tier is white cake w/BC filling. The top tier and the pineapple are krispie treats. All iced in BC. The characters are royal icing transfers. I had lots of problems w/this one, but it was a learning experience. All of the kids at my son's b-day party loved it. One of the mom's even said she would call for her next party
This is my 6 yr old son's first foray into fondant. He made the MMF himself, well mostly. This snowman is only about 2 1/2 inches tall. The thing on top of it's head is a baby snowman. Originally, it had a tiny nose. I have no idea how he got the detail on it. The big snowman even has on a top hat like Frosty. It's behind the baby snowman. :D I am very proud!!
Hot Wheels Nascar Cake
This is my first paid cake!!! Woo Hoo!! The mom said the child wanted a "NASCAR Hot Wheels" cake so this is what I did. The track and tires are MMF. Everything else is BC. I used piping gel to transfer the image in the middle. I had never worked w/a piece of MMF that big before, and it stretched some when I moved it. I figure it just gives the asphalt a more authentic look...lol. The mom is going to put cars on it when she gets it home.
I made this for the school where my son went to Kindergarten last year. They have an annual miniature golf tournament fundraiser. I'm donating it as a door prize. I just realized I forgot to put on the black dots for the holes. It's BC w/MMF accents and piping gel for the water. The big rock is made out of krispie treats. The bridge, I got at a cake supply. This is actually my first full-size cake (9X13)!!!
My Attempt At Spongebob Cookies
Wow! These are bad, but it was my first try. It is so much easier to draw a Spongebob face on paper. I was considering doing these for favors for my son's upcoming b-day. I just don't know now. I guess if I practice them a few more times first, they would get better. My son loves them though. That's really all that matters. Maybe I'll get some food color markers.
My Son's First Cookies
This is my 6 yr old son's first attempt at decorating cookies. He really liked mixing the colors together once they were on the cookie. It's abstract art!! He's into drawing monsters lately so a couple of them are monster faces w/lots of eyes and mouths...lol. One is a soccer ball.
First Cookie Bouquet
This is the first cookie bouquet I have attempted. Putting it together was harder than I thought it was going to be. I used rice in the bottom of the bucket which wasn't really sturdy enough. Next time I'll use foam. It was for a friend who got a promotion at work.
