One of two of these retro helmets I did. 2-layer marble cake using the Wilton helmet pan. Icing is all buttercream with colorflow Steelers emblem.
This was the smash cake to go along with her Tom & Jerry theme. Cake is marble with a FBTC transfer for the top. Confetti sugar hearts around the bottom border to make it more "girly".
Tom & Jerry Cake
First I want to thank Jen (gimli417) for posting her orginal photo,for all her help and for allowing me to try my hand at recreating it for my DD's birthday The cake measured just under 2' square. The head and body are marble cake, the arms, legs, tail and cuppies are chocolate. Everything is iced in btc with a fondant Jerry and Tom's face. Marshmellow toes and fishing line whiskers. DH and I worked on this cake till 3 a.m. the morning of her party but it was well worth it to see her reaction!
Nephews Grad Cake
This was my first ever mortarboard, tassel or diploma and it was for my nephew's high school graduation. Sheet cake is french vanilla, the bottom of the "hat" is devil's food, icing is btc except diploma and mortarboard; their fondant. I'm not sure why the top of the mortarboard dried so light but all in all it turned out OK and everyone loved it.
12x18 Marble cake. BTC icing with fondant USMC emblem painted in gold and white luster dusts. DH and I worked extra hard on this as it was for my nephew whose leaving for basic the day after graduation. One of two cakes for his party Saturday
There was a total of 4 cakes in this order. The 6" and 10" are french vanilla with red raspberry filling, the 8" shown is white with strawberry filling and an additional 8" kitchen cake was marble with buttercream. All cakes were iced in buttercream in the brides design. Thanks for looking!
Purple 40Th Whimsical Cake
This cake was a whole lot of firsts for me!! It was for my SIL 40th birthday. I'd never done an whimsical cake before and boy did I learn a thing or two!! Cake is marble with MMF
My niece "designed" this cake for her 10th birthday. Double hearts are marble, teddy bears are yellow cake and all done in BTC icing. There were a dozen chocolate cupcakes that went with this also.
My Daughter's First Cake
This was a two layer strawberry and cool whip cake I baked for my DH. I let my 2 1/2 yr old DD help with the frosting and then let her go at it with sanding sugars and sprinkles. Then she "helped" mommy hold the bag and do the writing on the cake. Needless to say DD had a total blast and DH thought it was the best Valentine's Day present ever!!
Hospital Xmas Baskets
I made these for the doctors and nurses that have been taking care of my Dad this last month in the hospital. They were very much appreciated and all where gone when we left, though most took one to take home . Cookies are sugar with RI. Some have sanding sugar accents and the angels in the bottom have luster dust on their wings.
This was my first attempt at making a fondant figure.I had a hard time with him but thanks to DH we got him together! Cakes are yellow with BTC icing. Thanks to everyone for their help with ideas too. This was a hard to please customer who FINALLY settled on this cake after about 10 different designs.
These cookies were inspired by designs from other CC'ers....Brea1026 and GemniniRJ...I took some of their ideas and a few of my own to come up with these cute little buggers. The cookies are just plain old sugar cookies with royal icing. They were lots of fun to do and I hope the little ones will love them tomorrow! Happy Thanksgiving All and thanks for looking!
I made these for a family reunion. Devil's food cc with cool whip icing and fondant leaves and pumpkin painted with luster dust.
All four lighthouses where hand painted on the fondant before piping the "leading" around in RI
Lighthouse Tiffany Lamp
Another dummy I wanted to try out. Thank you to Karateka for all your help with this!!!
Lavender Wedding Cake
This was a cake I did for practice and ended up entering in a fair. The "cake" is stryo dummies covered in fondant with BTC cornelli (sp) lace and shell borders. Roses and leaves are all RI. Thanks to Whyteicing for all the help and inspiration!
Black And White Kitten
Marble carved kitten on chocolate 13x9 cake decorated with a basket weave "rug". This was my first time carving a cake and all went well except making the "fur-look" I had some trouble with that. Cat was decorated to look like the bday girls bday kitten. All decorations are BTC except the whiskers....I used fishing line.
40Th Wedding Anniversary
5" round chocolate, 7" oval yellow, 10"&13" oval fudge marble cakes. All icing in BTC with ribbon borders and wooden "40" DH made and painted. First time doing something so big/tall. We were worried about it surviving the trip on bumpy back roads but it held up ok.
Jojo Smash Cake
DD's smash cake for her 2nd birthday. Cake is 5" chocolate fudge with FBCT Jojo....was my first time doing a FBCT that covered the whole top of a cake. Wish the pic turned out better but the flash picked up the wet look on the cake :(
Dd 2Nd Bday Cake
This was my first attempt at anything so involved. I want to first thank cakeconfections for some inspiration on this one. I wanted to do a JoJo's circus theme for my DD 2nd bday and this is what I came up with. The tent is a wondermold on top of an 8"x4" cake. Cake is marble with BTC icing and fondant stripes. Side cakes are 6" chocolate fudge cakes, BTC icing and fondant shapes. JoJo & Friends were bought as was the number 2 and stars candle.
The orginial idea for the cake was for the tiers to be sperated by pillars with the bear holding the sign and the cap and diploma on the bottom tier. However due to a wobbly table and equally wobbly push pillars when we tried to set up it quickly became a stacked cake. Luckily it was for me niece's kindergarten graduation and she LOVED it. All cake is chocolate, BTC icing and store bought hat and diploma.
Strawberry Wedding Cake
White cake with Strawberry filling, BTC icing and RI drop flowers around the sides, topped off with real fresh strawberries. Got lots of help from this one from the wonderful ppl on CC...THANK YOU!!!
Celtic Knot Wedding Cake
This cake was a disaster from day one! Top tier is all chocolate and the rest are half chocolate, half yellow. Icing is buttercream with RI knots and ribbon border. Went to set up the cake at the hall and they weren't ready so it was set up in one place and then they moved it when the cake table was ready :( There are so many things wrong with this cake it would take forever to mention so lets just say it was a learning experience both in the kitchen and out!
First off I want to thank Mjmil7 for her inspiration on this cake. The client saw her cake picture on the web and wanted one just like it. That being said the car is banna cake with btc icing and RI flowers, the road is fondant as its the "swt-16" license plate. Bottom cake is a 13X9 yellow cake with btc icing and RI flowers and writing. edible image of the birthday girl in the drivers window.
