Joel's 6Th Birthday Cake
Here's the Little Big Planet cake my DS requested for his 6th birthday. The base is a 10" round chocolate cake with fondant. The planet is RKT covered in blue candy melts with fondant accents and a fondant sackperson. I was so not motivated to do this cake, but was happy with the end result.
Sarah's 4Th Birthday Cake
For my 4 yr old DD who wanted butterflies, flowers, and pink. 8" strawberry WASC w/marshmallow filling. Fondant covered; all details are fondant w/tylose.
Kristen's Birthday Cake
Thanks to cc'er mya-carden for the inspiration for this cake. Cake is 10" square cut in half and stacked. (coconut WASC with pineapple & coconut pastry cream filling). All decorations are either fondant or fondant with tylose. Fondant bubbles were covered with ultrawhite luster dust.
Kevin & Sarah's Engagement Party Cake
Cake is 6" freckled mocha w/kahlua cream filling and 10" WASC w/raspberry filling. Shells are chocolate, starfish are gumpaste.
These are cupcakes I did for my kids' preschool for DS's birthday/Halloween. 1/2 were chocolate with chocolate BC, 1/2 were vanilla with regular BC. Toppers were marshmallows covered with candy melts.
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Birthday Cake
This cake was for my DS's 5th birthday. The base is a 10" square WASC/funfetti with chocolate BC under the fondant. The clubhouse parts are all RKT covered in fondant. The original design was larger, but we ended up scaling down the size of the cake. I tried to use a writing icing tube (because I was tired and didn't want to color any BC), but the stupid thing went wonky on me half way through. Hence the yellow blob. I will NEVER use one of those things again!
Carolina Panthers Football Cake
This was a groom's cake. It's a 12X18 sheet carved into a football with a chocolate transfer for the Panthers logo. The cake was a freckled mocha cake with a kahlua creme filling, iced with chocolate buttercream. My 1st successful chocolate transfer (yeah!)
Cinderella's Coach - Sarah's 3Rd Birthday
This was my DD's 3rd bday cake (our 1st princess cake!). It's a 12" WBSC with marshmallow filling covered in fondant. Cinderella was my 1st fondant figure - I've got work to do, but I was OK with the results. Chocolate candy rocks w/RI grass as border. Pretty happy with this one! Coach in RKT covered in RI, then fondant.
Practice Cake With Ribbon Roses & Ri
Extra WASC from bridal shower cake with strawberry filling. Fondant ribbon roses with RI leaves. First time using RI (gotta start somewhere!). Experimental filling recipe - sent to my DH's office to be eaten!
Bridal Tea Cake
This cake was for a bridal tea being held at a local tea room. The hostess saw my teachers cake and wanted the exact same cake for the shower, except with true blue "tablecloth". I tried to improve my gumpaste flowers (only the 2nd time I've done them!) and got to use my floral imprint mat. Cake is WASC with raspberry filling (both the base cake and the teapot), BC covered in fondant. Handle is fondant w/tylose, vase is styrofoam covered in gumpaste.
Teapot Cake For Teacher Appreciation Day
This cake was for my kids' preschool Teacher Appreciation Day. The cake is WASC with raspberry filling. This was my 1st time making gumpaste flowers; I definitely need to practice more, but I was pretty happy with them. Teapot done in fondant, base cake BC with fondant "tablecloth", vase is styrofoam covered in gumpaste.
This was my first attempt at a teapot. I did it for my MIL's birthday. Cake is French Vanilla WASC, with strawberry BC. Strawberry MMF. with regular MMF accents painted with super pearl luster dust. Next time, I'll make the spout and handle out of either gumpaste or 50/50; I stressed out way too much trying to transport this cake 45 miles away!
Mardi Gras 2008
I was experimenting with various cake/icing flavors, so I did this cake for my DH to take to his office. The top tier was WASC with amaretto BC, the bottom tier was chocolate WASC with marshmallow BC. All done in MMF.
New Year's 2008
This was a WASC with raspberry filling, BC with MMF around the side. I was pretty much trying to use up the raspberry filling and MMF I had from my sister's B-day cake, so I made this to take into the office. The design was inspired by various cakes I saw in the gallery.
Katy's 21St Birthday Cake
My sister's birthday is on Christmas and always seems to be forgotten in the madness. This year I decided to surprise her with a special cake at our family dinner on Christmas Eve. This was my first attempt at gumpaste anything, and I definitely learned some things the hard way! The cake is WASC with raspberry filling, fondant on sides, buttercream border, gumpaste bottle & label. Sorry about the Christmas stuff in the background - I didn't get a chance to move it before my DH started taking pictures!
