Hi all, this is yet another teddy bear baby shower cake. They're SO popular!! Special thank you to Aine2, for her wonderful teddybear tutorial. Fondant, with fondant decor and gumpaste flowers. Thanks for looking!
The Finished Cake!!!!
So, 6, 10, and 14" cakes, 3" high, covered in fondant. All decor is either fondant or gumpaste, or a combintation of both. He loved it!! :):):) Thanks for looking!
Pearls And Swirls
Hex tiers, 6, 9, 12 & 15, covered in fondant, with fondant ribbon and swirls. I painted the ribbon and swirls with white silk, and the pearls (1300 of them, all hand-rolled... ...whew.) are rolled in a mixture of white silk and super pearl. I made sure the silk ribbon around each cake drum was just a little wider than the drum in order to cover up the sep. plate underneath. Thanks for looking!
Just a 6" butter yellow with BC filling and icing. Fondant everything else. :) Thanks for looking!
Books, Top View
So, I've been itching for a reason to do a pair of books and finally got one. Engineering student (with a sense of humor) graduated and got a job involving HVAC units. 2 11x15's, each cut in half and stacked to make each book two layers. Bottom tier is everything chocolate... Chocolate fudge cake with mini choc. chips, choc. ganache filling, choc. BC, and Choc. MMF. Top tier is white chocolate cake with raspberry swirls, and a whipped vanilla-lemon cream filling. All decor is MMF, but grad cap is GP.
Walk Of Fame Birthday
Chocolate fudge cake with chocolate buttercream filling, covered in fondant. All accessories are either RKT, gumpaste, fondant, or a combination. Cake is covered in Aztec Gold luster dust, and the star was dabbed on using a sponge and watered-down food color gel. Popcorn is MMF, dusted with cocoa powder and buttercup yellow petal dust.
Well... I can admit when I'm defeated. I ran out of time, and the two attempts I made to create the bucket flopped. So... there's a boom and bucket without the bucket. Sigh. Covered in fondant, airbrushed, and set on platforms which were screwed to the base. Wheels are RKT covered in fondant, and boom was created from wooden dowels, covered in fondant. As always, thanks for looking!
21St Birthday Binge
2-Layer carved 9x13 confetti cake with buttercream filling and fondant. Neck is RKT covered in fondant, and label is an edible image. Figurine is made of fondant to resemble the birthday girl. Thanks for looking!
Thomas The Tank
So, I was finally asked to do one of these... I knew it was inevitable. :) The Landscape is a carved 11x15 french vanilla/milk chocolate swirl cake with marshmallow-flavored buttercream, covered in airbrushed fondant, with airbrushed RKT bushes and trees. Thomas and the carts are RKT covered in fondant. Tanks (hee hee) for looking!
I made this for my sister's and father's birthdays as a joint gift. Pot is lemon cake, shelf is chai cake, both have english toffee buttercream filling, and both are covered in fondant with fondant accents. Tree is modeling chocolate with fondant accents, and is supported by a skeleton of steel wire. I'm giving it to them this afternoon, so I hope they like it! Thanks for looking!
Bottom is a 12" round (marble) with a strawberry cheesecake buttercream finish and fondant embellishments, McQueen was carved from an 8" square (also marble) and covered in fondant with fondant and buttercream embellishments. This was for a little girl turning 4, so I made McQueen cartooney and bubbly to keep him somewhat feminine. I got to use my new airbrush for the first time!! :) Thanks for looking!
Elmo's Racing Car
This was for my sonâs 2nd birthday, and was modeled after his favorite toy (right). It embodies everything he is and loves; Elmo, cars, speed and recklessness, all with a sense of humor. :) Three hand-carved 9x13s, Napoleon-style (choc., vanilla, & strawberry), covered in fondant with fondant details. Blocks and wheels are RKT covered in fondant, Elmo is RKT, covered in BC. Had some trouble with humidity, and Elmo fell over several times, before he got his stubborn butt frozen. And all was well. :)
Patio De Los Arrayanes
Whew! It's finally done!! All wheat-free. Back building is almond with lemon BC, front is chocolate with whipped ganache and berry glaze. All covered in modeling chocolate, then fondant. Fondant, gumpaste, royal icing, RKT, & mylar sheet accents. I wimped out at the contract signing, but from now on, I'm NEVER doing a cake like this for under $600 ever again!!!
First, thank you to everyone who inspired this design! I made this cake for my husband's "Day or Perpetual Eating" at work. :) Carved 15x11, covered in MMF, with fondant details.
This 8x8 cake took me over 20 hours to complete. I'm SO glad it's done!! This was inspired by another CC member's design (I don't know who, 'cause stupid me right-clicked their picture instead of saving it to favorites). If you recognize it, please list the designer's name below so they can have the credit.
8" Chocolate Fudge cake with chocolate buttercream and fondant/gumpaste accents. Client wanted chocolate on chocolate, but gave me free reign on the design. Since it was yet another last-minute order (I've GOT to stop taking these!), I skimped a little on the detail. Overall, I'm really pleased!
So this was a last-minute cake for my parents' 40th anniversary (oops). With the new baby and all, I just plain forgot until the night before. :( So, this is white cake with buttercream, a fondant ribbon and pearls, and gumpaste 40 and bow. I would have liked to have the 40 as a topper, but there simply wasn't enough time to let it dry. My parents LOVED it though, and that's all that matters. :) Thanks for looking!
Luggage View 2
I've had a couple requests for another view of the cake... ...sorry, but this is as different as it gets. :( The backside of the cake was decorated too, but dummy me forgot to take a picture of it. :oops:
5 Yr. Old's Birthday
Ok, so, this is my humble attempt/interpretation of a Colette Peters design. Hand-carved 12¨ round white chocolate cake with raspberry chambord filling, covered in MMF, with MMF and RI accents with hand-rolled pearls. Whole cake is covered in a mixture of red pearl and super pearl luster dust. This was not from one of her books that I know of, but from one tier of her Bah mitzvah cake on her website. As always, thank you for looking! º
Small Whimsical Cake
This is my first whimsical cake, and it was so much fun to do! Thanks for looking!
Labor Day Piggy
I'm finally done!!! 3 9x13", 3 8x8", red velvet (of course) and chocolate. Buttercream with fondant accents, cakeboard decorated in rolled fondant. Thank you for looking! As always, comments and suggestions appreciated! :)
Just thought I'd share this with you guys and put a smile on your face - cake board is 36"x26", covered in fondant, and carved to look like a wood floor. (This is the base for a 3-D roasted pig) My dad came over tonight to say happy birthday to my husband, and didn't know this was fondant, and leaned his elbow into it!! Sigh. I'm just going to make sure I cover it with a fondant lettuce leaf! :):):)
