Farewell Cake For Fr. Lamb
One of the Priest of our parisyh was being reassigned and they asked me to do the farewell cake. His Name is Fr. Lamb, and he is originally from Boston and is a HUGE Boston Red Sox fan as well as a retired Military Chaplain. So I did a 3D Lamb cake dressed in black with a white collar, Boston Red Sox cap out of fondant, Red Sox Banner on the base cake as well as the Chaplain Corp emblem. I think it really turned out great and Fr. Lamb loved it too.
Froot Loops Groom's Cake
Was askd to do cereal boxes for a groom who loved cereal. they choose Fruity Pebbles and Froot Loops. This is the second of the 2 cakes. The cakes were done with a lemonade cake and lemonade icing with an edible image of the cereal box. I added real cereal around the top of the box.
Baby Welcoming Party
We had a baby welcoming party (the baby has already arrived) for a friend and the theme that she is using in the nursery is circus, so I used that theme on the cake. The baby is made of fondant, everything else is buttercream
Firetruck Birthday Cake
I donated a decorated cake as a united way silent auction item for my company. The co-worker who won this asked me to do her son's birthday cake and she requested the firetruck. But also needed the cake and icing to be eggless due to his allergies. So I found the plain eggless recipe here, which turned out wonderful and delicious. This is my first attempt at this fireturck cake. I thought I'd never finish all those stars! I also used the firemen's kit around the cake to add a little bit more fun.
Blue & White Music Birthday Cake
My boss asked me to do a cake for her daughter with a music theme with her favorite color, which is blue. So I molded blue vanilla candies into instrument shapes and notes. I used a 8 & 10 inch cake icied with buttercream. It was a butter recipe cake underneath.
Snowflakes And Holidays
This is my first attempt with free standing royal icing decorations. I love snowflakes , so I thought I'd give it a try. most turned out ok, but I found out you need to let them dry for a couple of days so they don't break so easy. the rest of the cake is buttercream icing on a red velvet cake.
I wanted this cake to be colorful since my co-worker is from Bermuda and likes bright colors. It's all BC with a chocolate cake inside.
First Bow Cake
This is the cake from class 3 and the first time I did a fondant bow. Had fun doing this, will definately try it again.
My brother is a huge Oklahoma fan, so I thought it'd be a great theme for his cake. I made a strawberry cake, with strawberry filling and add strawberry ice cream topping to my BC, which turned out good and really had a good flavor.
Golf & Ole Miss Birthday
A friend asked me to do a cake for her husband who is a golf player and loves Ole Miss. So I made the golfbag and bucket of balls and decorated the cake in the colors of Ole Miss. We also used golf ball and football candles. The cake is a butter recipe with buttercream icing.
My brother has joined the Greek Orthodox, and so for his birthday I decided to use it as the theme and use his confirmation name on the cake. It also has the "Greek Key" design around the sides of the cake. The cake is french vanilla with buttercream icing
This is my first attempt at basketweave and the end of my second wilton class. I think it is awesome how good this technique looks and how easy it is done. I will use it again and try some alternative tips as well.
Halloween Football Cake
I was asked to do a cake for work with football, fall and halloween as themes, so I thought of ghost and gobblins playing football. The figures & leaves are fondant, cake is butter recipe with buttercream icing. This cake was so much fun...and no one wanted to cut the cake at the party!
Massage Therapy Graduation
My sister-in-law just gradutaed from massage therapy school and asked me to do her cake. So this is my first attempt at forming a person with fondant. When I found Cakebam's cake with hand prints on it, (thanks for your inspiration) it gave me an idea for my cake. So I used a rubber stamp of hands for the small ones and a hand cookie cutter to form larger hands. The little man on the table is all fondant. The cake is butter recipe with buttercream icing and small hands are buttercream as well.
My sister-in-law graduated from massage therapy school and my brother asked me to do her cake. I've never done fondant figures, so I'm really excited about this little person and the massage table. I'll be putting this on her cake next week.
First Fondant Cake
I just finished my fondant & gumpaste class and this was my finale cake. I have fun with it. I used satin ice fondant to cover cake, and wilton fondant & gumpaste for all other parts. I really liked the satin ice it was easy to work with and it taste good too!
I saw a cake very close to this design on this site (please forgive me, I didn't get your name) and changed a few colors, but my friend wanted bright colors and lots of flowers. This is all buttercream, with 2 color roses (purple and pink)
Blue & Pink Birthday Cake
I did this for a lady that I work with for her birthday. She loves blue and pink. I added yellow just as another color. Guess you could also use this for a baby shower. The roses have pink centers. This is all Buttercream frosting with a french vanilla cake inside (of course it's inside...outside wouldn't make any sense...lol)
Mom's Birthday - Blue W/white Roses
After finishing my first decorating class, Mom told me she wanted a blue cake with lots of white roses. This was my first attempt to work with roses outside of class...think I put a few too many, but Mom loved it, so that made me happy
Final Cake - Class 1
This is the final cake in my course 1 class. I really enjoyed the class and I'm looking forward to the next one.
