Green Birthday Cake
This was a super rush job. They weren't going to have a cake and with less than 3 hours away, decided they wanted one!!! I baked, filled and decorated and delivered in under three hours; for me, that was extremely fast!!! LOL Not the best job but he was happy with it and got his usual triple lemon cake. I used green gel on top just for something extra. My grandson's favorite color??? GREEN OF COURSE!!! ..... LOL
Birthday Doll Cake
The pink cake was 18"x12". Strawberry cake & strawberry BC icing and filling. Also all strawberry cake, strawberry BC filling and icing. I used a Revereware metal mixing bowl for the doll cake. Unfortunately they changed the design on that set of bowls to have more of a flat bottom. I'm sure glad mine have stayed in new condition for the 30 years I've had them. Never figured on using one for a cake though. LOL
Slot Machine Birthday
I did this cake before Wilton came out with there ''slot machine'' pan. I used the the "tombstone pan". Spice cake with rum BC filling and icing. The ''arm'' I made with BC too. I used edible glitter to give it a little pizzazz!!!!
Twelve inch, double layer strawberry cake. Vanilla BC icing with BC filling and strawberry preserves. BC roses. Another of my cakes from several years back. Sorry all these pics are out of focus and mostly washed colors. Single use camera in those days.

Eight inch chocolate cake w/almond filling and icing. Plastic topper. They only wanted a small cake because there were going to be so many other desserts available.
Another of my early cakes. I know this is more of cake for a female, but that's what I wanted to practise on. My son was OK with that. He said it had tasted great. He picked lemon cake with raspberry filling. Lemon BC icing.
I made this cake for a neighbor....my neighbor's are my guinea pigs. LOL This was a tall 8" spice cake with rum BC icing and filling. Another pic from my archives!!!

French vanilla cake with almond BC filling and icing. The rattle is chocolate cake with almond icing. This was for a friend's daughter. I learned a lot doing this cake. Goofed up a lot but had fun doing it.
Chocolate cake with rum filling and icing. Handle is royal icing. This was my son's first cake. I showed him on paper how to do the basket weave and off he went. Followed all recipe directs and I think did a super job. The cake was set in the front window for the picture and my grandson (my son's son) walked by right at the time the pic was being taken. Had to color him out - that's the brownish coloring through the handle. LOL
