Diego's Cupcake Tower
Diego's theme birthday cupcakes.Yellow butter-almond cake,store bought icing(the whipped one,I love it!)I made the tower with a few cake boards,decorative foil and cake dummies.Decorations are Diego's candle,fondant stars and RI.Had a lot of trouble with the plaque because of the humidity.First time using the sugar decorations (faces).The only bad thing is that the paper in the back is very hard to remove completely.
Neighbors Bbq Cake
Made this cake for a neighbors BBQ.German chocolate and strawberry filling,covered in fondant and decorations in BC.The decorations were a disaster and the BC was melting with the heat.I was almost in tears and decided to try an emergency design,sadly I dont have the "before" pictures.The flowers were a mess and I just started pipping dots.Everybody liked it and I was really happy with that ; )
Derek's Grad Cake
This is the cake I made for my sons pre-K graduation.My inspiration was a cake katharry made for her daughters graduation (Thanks!) French vanilla/strawberry 12"cake,french vanilla/chocolate mousse 8" and 6" cakes.MMF covered and Wilton fondant and gumpaste decorations.It was a hit.Everybody loved the cake and asked for my number.The school director messed up the word "Congratulations" (Note to self: NEVER! let THEM carry the cake ;) It turned out very good even with the humidity.
Yellow butter cake,strawberry filling,buttercream-whipped cream and fondant.The girl was going to the navy's boot camp and I wanted to make something a little funny for her (her favorite shirt,her favorite underwear,her favorite bag,etc) and mix it with the navy theme.She cried when she saw the cake.I was very emotional too making it,but it was fun and It tured out good.

I need to write "Happy Birthday to Me" on the bottom board. ;)

Bridal Shower Practice Cake
White cake with amaretto sirop,cool whip/nutella filling,fondant,RI decorations and tiara.the fondant darkened a little because of the chocolate,but it was practice anyway.Used an actual bridal tiara for the design.I did the cornelli just to cover the imperfections on the fondant.Still need more practice.
Tiara #3,RI,MMF pearls,flowers and leaves.Just practice to see how the design goes.Icing is sunflower yellow w gold luster dust.Had to fix the right side.

Wc And Raspberry Cake For Dh
This one I finished I while ago for my DH and DS.Butter yellow cake with raspberry filling,whipped cream scrolls and raspberry swirls decorations.Practicing the scrolls but need to improve making the stabilized whipped cream.
This is a dummy I made just for fun and like an experiment.Fondant color is very light sage and chocolate color scrolls.I wanted the scrolls like dark chocolate,but had no more wilton coloring gel.For the scrolls I used a mix of RI that I made and some piping gel from a recipe I wanted to try.It was a little thick but worked good,it makes perfect dots.Sorry about the bad piping.When you have a 4 yr old running around,everybody gets nervous :)
Cherry Blossoms Cake Dummy
Round cake dummies,fondant covered,BC decorations and fondant flowers.My first attempt at cherry blossoms,well sort off (Im crazy about them,reminds me the day I got married).The tree is painted with Wilton brown,and the little fuschia blossoms are BC (big mistake,nothing like RI to decorate).Borders are BC,cornelli lace on the top,all the cake dusted with super pearl.I wanted the green ribbon to be satin but I forgot to buy it.Fondant ribbon is a little hard to make.I had a lot of fun.
Cake dummy covered in fondant,BC decorations and fondant flowers made with a flower making set I bought that day.I made a lot of them for practice.
