Ariel Swimming Cake
This cake was a lot of fun to make!!! I looked at a lot of cakes on cc and came up with this. I made a towel out of fondant and the tail is fondant. Pool "water" is piping gel and the rest is buttercream.
I made this for a friend's housewarming. the house is made of rkt. The little path is fondant.
Chalkboard- Kinder/pre-K Graduation
This is a cake I made for a family friend for her two daughters who just finished Prek and Kinder. I didn't want to do an actual graduation cake since the kids didn't actually wear a cap and gown so I thought I would do the chalkboard cake to center on their learning!
Little Ballerina Cake
This cake was fun to do. It was inspired by many of the cakes here at CC with some changes that I made to make it my own. I used the cobblestone pattern on the fondant skirt. I only used this one because it is the only pattern I have. It probably would have been cuter with a vine or floral pattern. I tried to carve the cake to make it look a little more contoured like the hourglass shape, but I was a little too nervous and was a little too conservative. You can hardly tell that it has shape to it.
My Own Birthday Cake!
I made my own cake because I have never gotten a homeade cake before. I always end up getting grocery store cakes when everyone else in my family gets my cakes!! At least I got exactly what I wanted for my 30th birthday. I've always wanted to make a cake like this. Chocolate w/choc. covered strawberies. It also gave me another chance to practice my basket weave. Still needs a lot of work though!!
This is my first paid cake. I'm actually not sure what the lady is going to give me for it because I've never charged. I didn't even know where to start to quote her so she said she would give me a fair payment. It is an 8" round white cake with toasted coconut and pineapple filling. The roses and leaves are fondant.
Ariel- The Little Mermaid Cake
This cake was so much fun to do. I made all of the shells out of chocolate and white chocolate and painted them with luster dust. All accents, the rock and tail are made out of fondant. The birthday girl had a special request to have shamu on her cake so I drew Shamu by hand. It was definately an experience! She loved it!
My First Wedding Cake!! Done!
I have done a tiered cake before but that was in my home for my parents. This was on a much bigger scale and I can't believe it is over. The cake was alternating layers of white chocolate cake w/white chocolate bc filling and coconut cake w/toasted coconut pineapple filling. Layers were 14, 12, 10 , 8.
Spurs basketball hoop cake for my uncle's birthday. He really liked it. It was a german chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream and fbct logo. The fbct actually cracked when I flipped it over but I don't think you could really tell! Thank goodness!!!
Barn Farm Cake
This cake was the absolute hardest cake that I have ever made. I had so many challenges including the whole barn falling over. I was able to save it and the birthday girl was thrilled. It took me four days to make all the fondant figures because I just did a few every night. It was my first time using MMF and make figures. I learned a lot and had fun but I don't know if I'll make another barn cake! Thank you to everyone on cake central for all the great advice and help!!
This is my first time making cookie cutter cookies. They went perfect with the barn cake that I made. I had a lot of fun. I can't wait to make more for the holidays. I used the NFSC recipe and antonias74 royal icing. They were really easy to make and tasted great!!
My First Try At Fondant- Cowgirl
I worked very hard at this and it took me forever. It was inspired by aine2. I really had no idea what I was doing so it took several attempts. I was pretty happy with it. It is going to go on top of a barn cake with animals for a party sunday.
Heffalump Bct Pooh
This was my 2nd try at a fbct. I had a lot of fun doing this but was a little disappointed that my outline smeared a little somehow. I made the transfer a few days before I made the cake. I was in a real hurry to ice the cake so I didn't worry to much about smoothing it. It was for a 3 year old and her family only not an actual party. Her reaction was priceless so I guess thats all that counts! "Its a real heffalump just like the movie!"
My first FBCT!! It was small so it took a long time and all of the detail work was so difficult. Next time I'll make it a little bigger. Its for my uncles birthday.
30Th Anniversary Poinsettia Cake
This was my first time making poinsettas and using royal icing. It was a bit of a challenge at first but I had a lot of fun. This was my gift to my parents for their anniversary.
Pretty In Pink Doll Cake
This is my 2nd attempt at a doll cake. The birthday girl was happy. I was pretty happy with the outcome. This time I did better with my icing consistency. I think I learn something new with each cake I make. Its also taking me less time.
60Th Anniversary Cake
My first ever tiered cake. It was a 10 inch choc. choc. chip cake w/buttercream icing and an 8 inch yellow cake w/bc icing. The roses are fondant. It didn't come out as smooth as I wanted but I did my best. It was for my grandparents and they were thrilled. I guess I'm satisfied for my first time working with fondant and tiered cakes. Thanks to cake central for everyone's beautiful cake ideas!
This was a very time consuming cake for being so small. I had lots of problems with this cake. The cake didn't come out as tall as I thought it would and I had a hard time getting the doll pick to keep from leaning. Its for a 4 year old so I hope she likes it.
Princess Castle Cake
This cake was fun to do but I was pretty exhausted after making my doll cake. Next time I'll use a different purple to match the castle closer. It was a single layer 8" round.
Rainbow Class Cake
I made this tonight for my mom to take to her work. It was a lot of fun doing the transfer. I'm anxious to try more
Happy Birthday Cake- 1St Try At Roses
Well this was fun. I'm just practicing. We only had one class so far where we just observed. I know it take a lot of practice. I was over anxious to try roses so there they are. I can't wait to learn more! It was just a small cake. I'm going to make a round cake for Wednesday's class. The leaves were harder than I thought they would be.
