Sugar cookies with coconut flavored icing. Just did these for fun but will probably give them to my daughters college basketball team when they come to town this weekend. I had fun doing these. Tip: refrigerate cookie dough, roll out on parchment paper when chilled, place dough on paper on cookie sheet and place in freezer for 5-10 minutes till dough is good and firm, then cut the shapes with cookie cutters. This helps retain shape of the cookie before baking. Good Luck !
4 layers of red velvet cake with raspberry puree and cream cheese frosting. Homemade fondant airbrushed. I should have painted the inside of the bow loops and Im still working on perfecting fondant on square cakes. The man who ordered this for his wife was thrilled. It was a surprise for her. He choose the flavors, which is the same thing he choose when I did their wedding cake a little over a year ago. Thanks to "cib" for the inspiration. I charged $75 for this cake cause I had nothing better to do. I would have priced it at $234.00
Michael Jordan Grooms Cake
The groom liked MJ. Chocolate cake covered in fondant. Red pattern hand painted, black dots fondant cut outs. Jumpman is gumpaste. Orange basketball airbrushed. The groom Loved it!
Red Wedding Cake
Red fondant. Gumpaste flowers. I was very unsure about doing a "RED" cake but I like the way it came out. $562.00 which included the grooms cake (the Jordan cake with the red and white checkerd pattern)
This was my first time separating tiers of the cake. I liked this cake but it seems like the progression from top to bottom might not be qjuite right. I used 14, 12, 10 and 8 square. Any useful tips/advice are welcome. Thanks for looking. $875.00 for this cake. It was priced at a little over $1,000 but I gave them a small discount. Might sound crazy but I feel strange asking someone for a grand for a cake, not that it wasnt worh it. Plus I transported this cake about 50 miles from home.
I was not feeling well when it came time to do these, they are definalty not my best work and this was not the original design. But they were for a baby shower at work and I wasnt paid. Just wanted to share.
