Scuba diving and ocean cake for my husband's birthday: scratch chocolate cake with raspberry filling, buttercream icing and marshmallow fondant.
This house was built by me and decorated by my six-year-old daughter. The red icing roof made the house very festive and added a surprising amount of color to the holiday decorations. It was a rich red but doesn't show on the photo.
Bird Nest Cake
My daughter asked for a nest cake for her 6th "Bird-Day" party. She was partial to chickens because of her pet Mrs. Cluckers. The eggs were a nightmare for my husband and I because we used white "melts" that I thought were white chocolate to coat the Cadbury creme eggs, and the melts kept going lumpy. I wanted to add icing ribbons, bits of string, and flowers to look like a bird had collected them for the nest, but I ran out of time due to the above problem.
This cake was for my daughter's "Mythical Creatures" 7th birthday party. It's pretty generic Wilton except that it matches the mermaid costume I made for her.
