K-State Coffee Mug
Made for my son's 6th grade teacher who is an avid K-State fan and coffee drinker! 6" base and three 3" layers for mug (I have a small set), all Funfetti per son's request. Would love some advice on how to work on a small cake like that. I ended up putting a long skewer through it to hold on to, but it was nearly impossible to frost and smooth when I couldn't hold onto it! All BC with 50/50 handle and logo. All in all pretty pleased, but will improve next time.
Thansgiving Feast Cake
I made this for my son's 6th grade Thanksgiving feast at school. I wanted to try one of the roasted turkey cakes, but I was in charge of the committee for the feast, and decided I didn't need the extra stress! The leaves didn't turn out as vibrant as I had hoped, but this picture makes them even lighter. Yellow cake with chocolate whipped filling. All BC decorations, except the pumpkins, which are MMF.
Wow, this cake was a challenge! It was my first attempt at topsy turvy, and I thought everything was going well until I put on the large cupcake and realized I had forgotten the dowels! The bottom tier sustained damage, and ended up cracking even after I fixed it. (the full story is in the forums) This photo is after I had doweled and fixed everything, but by then, my once-smooth icing was wrinkled, and it doesn't look as good as it originally did. Funfetti cake; all BC with MMF and gumpaste accents.
I did this a few years ago; it was my first time using fondant EVER. At the time, I thought it came out pretty well, but now I can see all the mistakes. It's true that practice makes perfect! Fondant covered with BC border and dots. Booties are 3 marshmallows covered in BC.
This was my first try at a hamburger cake. So easy and so fun! My daughter did the watermelon and deviled eggs. The eggs are a chewy granola bar shaped into an egg shape. Cakes are white, yellow, and chocolate for the hamburger patty. Iced in BC with fondant condiments. Watermelon is covered in fondant.
This was for my daughter's piano recital. The theme was romantic/patriotic (half of the program was each). I did it several years ago, and it was my first tiered cake. I can really tell where I have improved! All BC; I hadn't even tried fondant yet at that time.
I made this cake for a church pool party that was canceled because of rain. I stuck it in the freezer until I could decide what to do with all that cake! Fortunately, my daughter had a pool party to go to 2 days later. We pulled it out to thaw, and the color ran down the sides with the condensation. Everyone liked it, though. All BC with fondant accents. "Ice cubes" are clear gelatin.
Done by my 14 year old for her 8th grade science project. The assignment was to do an edible volcano; needless to say, we went above and beyond! We searched CC for ideas, and then incorporated all of them. lol!
Drill Team Cake
I made this one for a birthday celebration for my daughter's drill team. I photocopied their logo three times, and then cut each color of fondant a different size. TFL!
Small Wedding Cake
This was a cake for a small wedding reception in their home. It was near 100 degrees, and high humidity. I had some trouble with frosting wanting to sag; but once it was all together, that wasn't as noticeable Marble DH cake, all BC with real roses.
My First Bow
I made this cake for my daughter's drill team banquet. I used a copier to make copies of the team logo, and then cut them out as the templates for the fondant logo. This was my first bow, however. I am pretty happy with it, but will do a few things different next time. Cake is decorated with BC, and all Fondant accents.
Piano Recital Cake
Piano is choc. cake covered with fondant. Sheet cake is yellow cake with BC. I don't like my writing. I need to practice more, but I was happy with the piano. It was easier to cover than I expected.
