Tiffany Blue And Black
The design of this wedding cake was based on the graphics used on the couple's wedding invitations.
Traditional With A Touch Of Modern
Round four-tier wedding cake iced in buttercream with fondant accents and gumpaste monogram
Brown And Blue
8" and 6" last minute cake for a bride who couldn't decide if she wanted a cake for her small wedding. Covered in brown fondant and decorated with gumpaste callas, dots and ribbons. Thanks for looking.
My family celebrates Christmas in the summer -- it's easier for all eight kids and their families to get together. My sister asked that I make a "gingerbread house" for our celebration. I decided on somehing more "Thomas Kinkaid Christmas Village."
Arrowhead Football Stadium In Kansas City
12" square cake is under the stands. Walkways and stands are pastillage, as well as signs and scoreboard. Everything else is a mixture of fondant and gumpaste. Once I figured out how to do the pastillage stands, it was really fun to make.
Captain Teygan's Pirate Ship
This was my first sculpted cake made for little "pirate" named Teygan. It remains one of my favorite cakes.
A Thank-You Cake To My Stylist
I made this cake for my hair stylist and his salon to say "thank you" for all of their wonderful word-of-mouth advertising they've done for me. It's an 8" chocolate cake with raspberry filling and white chocolate raspberry icing.
This was such a fun cake to do. Bottom layer is 12" chocolate, top is 8" white. Covered in fondant with a layer of buttercream underneath. A special "thank you" to the CC'ers who have their castle cakes on CC -- you were my inspiration and guides.
Tate's Toy Story Birthday
I made this for my grandson who turned 3 yesterday. He's totally into Toy Story, especially Woody and Buzz. The bed, toy box and night stand are cake covered in fondant. Everything but the toys is made from either fondant or gumpaste.
All The Cakes
In addition to the brownie wedding cake, I did two strawberry cakes (the pink ones), a carrot cake (giner), white with raspberry filling (ivory) and a plain white (ginger). I thought it made for a really pretty cake table. and the guests loved all the different flavors.
Brownie Wedding Cake
I did this brownie cake for a couple who didn't like cake, but loved brownies. It's three different kinds of brownies, four layers each (I had to bake each layer because as you know chewy brownies don't rise), a 12", 10" and 8" iced in chocolate buttercream. It was one heavy cake but the couple loved it and so did the guests, especially the little ones.
Ksu Graduation Cake
Chocolate cake with buttercream icing, gumpaste cap, fondant diploma and edible image "powercat."
This Started It All For Me ..
I hadn't decorated any cakes for probably 20 years and decided I wanted to make my grandson's 2nd birthday cake. He LOVES animals and when I saw this on the cover of the 2006 Wilton book, I knew I had to make it for him. He and his little friends loved the icing and candy animals, but most weren't too interested in the cake. After this, I knew I wanted to do more cakes and cookies.
First Wedding Cake
This was a chocolate cake with a buttercream layer and fondant. Flowers are gumpaste. I used the SugarVeil system for monogram and small dots. I also had scroll work on the top layer done with the SugarVeil, but didn't think to get a picture of that.
Lots Of Colors
This was for a little girl's first birthday. Mommy wanted lots of colors. I think I was inspired by a cake here on Cake Central, but can't remember for sure. If it was yours, thank you.
Bunny And Easter Egg Basket
White cake with raspberry filling, buttercream icing, gumpaste bunny and basket, candy eggs. Bunny inspired by a Edith Sanchez design.
First Gum Paste Flowers
This was my first attempt at sugar flowers. I chose an easy one. ;-) I made this cake for a bride and her mother who wanted to see how smooth we could get our buttercream and also wanted something for the groom to taste--he didn't get to be a part of the initial consultation. She just wanted a plain buttercream iced cake, but I couldn't let a cake go out the door without any decoration. The bride loves calla lilies so I hoped that this might encourage them to decide to let me make their wedding cake.
Riley Paige Baby Shower
Here's my take on a Lindy Smith cake. It was pretty time consuming, but it came out really cute I thought.
