My Baby Shoe Pattern
I wanted to share my baby shoe pattern. It is a good pattern for a beginner because that is what I am! I made them from all fondant but now I would make them 50/50 fondant gumpaste. You can see them in my gallery if you want to see the finished product ...it is the pair of white shoes not the single one..that was the bad prototype... I hope you enjoy the pattern and if you have questions, please give me a shout.
5 Year Work Anniversary Beach Cake
first try at a beach cake. double layer vanilla w/ strawberry cream filling and reg. buttercream icing. sand is graham cracker crumbs..shells, coral and number 5 all from melts..did the 5 freehand and painted it with gold luster dust mixed in vanilla extract.

Stump Cake For My Son's Birthday
First time making a stump cake and what fun! It is BC and modeled squirrel, toadstools and acorns are fondant. I put the squirrel on top of the stump eating a daisy as a joke because one plagued his garden all summer! I hope he loves it.
Wedding Shower Cake For My Dil-To-Be's Friend
I made this cake for a wedding shower party held by my DIL-to-be for her friend that is getting married. There have been several showers but no special cake at any so I was asked if I could make something pretty for the bride for this one. Her colours are icy blue and white. First time I did a monogram...press for 1st and last initial..middle freehand. I am delivering shortly...Not sure the blue is exactly right but I think it turned out quite pretty

I Actually Did It.....the Baby Shower Cake With Fondant Shoes
white cake with lemon curd/bc filling. BC icing and fondant baby shoes I made a week or two ago. So much fun doing this and finally I get to see the shoes on top of the cake! I was so happy. Hopefully the Mom-to-be will like it...this is for a friend of a friend. I hope it is "baby" enough looking.
First Stacked Cake - Bc, White Cake With Lemon Filling And Lemon Flavoured Icing
First stacked cake..practice for next week's baby shower cake..the real one will have the little baby shoes I made last week on top instead of vines/rosebuds. I might make the green a bit less green..my thought was I tried to make a growing garden of rosebuds and vines..any suggestions would really be appreciated..the lattice isn't perfect but at least covered with flowers and vines
Soccer Team Cake
Just a fun cake for a soccer wind-up party this evening..my son loved it when I dropped it off. Chocolate fudge cake with chocolate BC icing and little plastic figures and bought sugar soccer balls for the sides.

Rose Wreath Cake
Practice cake..a littletrouble with corners but first I have done. Practice buttercream roses and rosebuds. They were tinted ivory and I sprinkled them with the gold coloured Wilton dust. They looked prettier than in picture. I was happy with the cake and as usual, I took it to work so we wouldn't eat it!!
Birthday Cake With First Time Writing
Wrote on the cake for the first time...used bc rosebuds which I learned this week in class. Cake is for a great friend at work. I tried to smooth it using paper towels but it came out all patterned which I thought looked great so I kept it..Cake is DH vanilla with apricot/Grand Marnier filling(Wilton site) and class buttercream. I am very happy with how it looks.

Saturn Birthday Cake For Starwatcher Husband

Buttercream icing. Practicing with leaf tip. Attempted to make a sunflower cake. Saw similar somewhere and tried to copy. Just a practice cake which I took to work a few weeks ago.
