Baby's nursery was being done in Americana, so they wanted a cake to go with that theme. Chocolate cake with BC frosting, and fondant accents, mixed with GumTex. Baby's feet formed around rice crispie treats, and "bum" is 1/2 styrofoam ball, covered in fondant.
My husband is a Chipotle nut, so what better birthday surprise, than a Chipotle cake?! I even talked them into giving me a couple of sheets of their paper liners to cover the board. Chocolate cake with fondant beans and tomatoes and rice. Grated white chocolate is the cheese, and marshmallow fluff is the sour cream. I also kneaded a few crumbs from the cake into the "tortilla," to make it look more real
Cupcake Wedding Dress
At first, I was a little disappointed that they "only" wanted a cupcake cake, but after I got into this one, it was so much fun! Cupcakes are white cake and chocolate cake, all with my crusting butter cream. Jewelry was supplied by the mother of the bride. I attached the cupcakes to the board with double sided tape, which only worked moderately well. If anyone else has done a cupcake cake, and has a better idea for attaching them to a board, please comment and let me know, because I would love to try something else next time. Thanks!
This Cake Was By Far The Biggest Use Of My Cricut Yet I Started Out Trying To Cut The Circles Individually But It Quickly Became Apparent
This cake was by far the biggest use of my Cricut yet! I started out trying to cut the circles individually, but it quickly became apparent that it would not work. The cake was lemon poppy seed with crusting cream cheese frosting, and lemon curd filling. The design on the sides was cut out on my Cricut in panels that overlapped at the ends. The panels went on very easily!
For This Wedding I Did 200 Cupcakes To Be Gifts For Each Guest In Addition To The Actual Wedding Cake Whew To Understand These Cupcakes
For this wedding, I did 200 cupcakes to be gifts for each guest, in addition to the actual wedding cake. Whew! To understand these cupcakes, you have to know that the groom proposed by burying the ring in the sand, and putting a sign saying "Dig Here". The cupcakes were made from BC white cake mix, tinted pink. The frosting was butter cream, sprinkled with graham cracker crumbs, and pearl dragees. The day of the wedding, I met the MOB and bridesmaids before the reception, and we added the ring and sign, and packaged them in upside down clear plastic cups. The second picture is the table of all 200 packaged cupcakes.

Piano Recital Graduation
My DD's, piano teacher was the first person to purchase a cake from me. It was for my daughter's recital when she was in elementary school. This week was her last recital as she is graduating and going off to college, so her teacher ordered a special graduation one. (there were 4 other seniors) Top and bottom tiers are white cake with vanilla mousse filling, middle tier is chocolate cake with vanilla mousse. All BC with fondant and 50/50 decorations. Inspiration for piano keys came from cake by cfpeoples, and bottom tier from jeana 77.

Wedding cake for the daughter of our dear friends. So much fun to plan and make! Top 3 tiers white chocolate and milk chocolate pound cakes. Bottom 3 tiers all styrofoam dummies. All iced in white chocolate BC with 50/50 decorations.
The birthday girl's husband ordered this and he really didn't know what he wanted. I talked about some of the possibilities, and all he really responded to was "polka dots" and "loopy bow. He knew she likes purple, but didn't want "K-State purple." Also, he said that the party was at a wine bar with a darker, very traditional decor. So here's what I came up with, along with one of the plates he gave me to use for colors. They pick it up this evening. Hope they like it!
Can't tell you how MANY people asked where I found a fountain, because they hadn't seen one of these in years! lol Bride had wanted this since she was a little girl and saw pictures of her mom's cake. All white cake with one funfetti tier for the groom! All BC decorations and real flowers done by the florist.
Fun cake for a boy's 11th birthday. I wanted it to be masculine, but fun. I meant to make the "n" on top blue with a black background, but messed up when cutting it out. I think it looks OK, though. Yellow cake, all BC with fondant accents. "n" is gumpaste cut on Cricut.
2 Peas In A Pod
I have SO wanted to do one of these, so when a friend said she was throwing a shower for a woman having twins, I just had to do it! Top tier Butter Pecan cake, bottom Milk Chocolate. All BC with MMF and 50/50 accents.
Thanks DawnRenee for the inspiration. I did mine square, and obviously I need more practice. I accidentally put the worst side as the front! Fortunately this was for my DD's birthday. Choc cake with cherry filling. All BC and fondant accents.
Charms Bridal Shower Cake
First request for a shower cake with the charms; much easier than anticipated, especially since she wanted the basket weave. Strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting and regular BC roses. 50/50 bow. Bow and roses sprayed with pearl luster. Pedestal supplied by customer. Incidentally, the charms were specific to each guest, so I put a different bead at the end of each and made a "key" for the customer.
Buzz Lightyear Birthday
VERY last minute cake for a three-year-old's birthday. All BC with fondant accents. Started at about 6:00 int he eve, and finished at 3:00 the next a.m. Wish I had had more time to clean it up a bit, but I was pretty happy with it overall.
Aaron And Jessie
My brother's wedding cake. When he got engaged, he said he and his bride just wanted it to have "mom's icing, and her icing roses." (Our mom did wedding cakes as well.) Each tier is one layer white choc. and one layer choc. cake with chunks of white and semisweet choc in the filling. All decorations are white choc. BC. Very yummy! And they were so thrilled, my new SIL was literally jumping up and down!
Pink And Brown Baby Shower
First of all, thanks to ceshell for the inspiration and the help. Hope I did hers justice, but she is obviously more experienced than me! First time doing gumpaste booties. I was pretty happy with how they turned out. Also, just bought an extruder for this design. LOVE IT! So much fun! Dark Chocolate cake with chocolate BC (per MTB request) MMF and 50/50 accents dusted with pearl dust. The separate cake is a 4" because of some last minute additions to the guest list, and I had made this one with extra batter anyway. Just wanted to be on the safe side.
