This is the cake I made for my dad's 75th birthday... He's always been unbelievable when it comes to home maintenance, painting and repairs, so I couldn't think of anything better than this! Thanks to so many other CC'ers who posted cakes that fueled the inspiration for this cake. I LOVE this site!!! Brush and roller are RKT covered in fondant.
This cake was made for a little girl nick-named "Sparkles", so it *had* to be shiny! Design was inspired by the birthday girl's invitations. Airbrushed in green, blue, and pearlized. Gems are poured isomalt.
This is one more of the cakes I've done for a bride who is VERY true to herself! I love working with these kinds of women!! This one was done during a move, when all of my supplies were packed up, so definitely not my best work, but she loved it and that's all that's important. :) The "beading" around the top tiers matched the beading on her dress. TFL!
Red, Black And White Wedding
6, 8, 10 & 14" alternating red and white tiers. Bride asked for the cut outs, so each tier has been covered twice in order to have the alternating color showing through. Really fun to do, glad there are so many brides out there willing to show their personalities for their weddings! TFL!
Hi all, this was a last minute cake done for my son's birthday (Maximus took so long that I was just too tired to do the detail I wanted!) Completely edible. He asked for Tyrone, Tasha, a castle and a dragon. I would have liked to do more detail work as well as cleaner work, but I was just too tired. I had a house to clean too! :) TFL!
Maximus From "tangled"
Whew! This one is finally done! Where to begin? Ok, it is completely edible aside from the 3/8" head-shaped cutout to support the head. I used ganache, buttercream, fondant, modeling chocolate, gumpaste, royal icing and RKT for this one (what *didn't* I use!) :) This was a lot of fun to make, but also a lot of work! TFL!
