Congrats For A Professor
Pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing. Couldn't get the icing smooth--I was very disappointed with it.
My Son's Baptism Cake
My son's baptism cake. Top layer, my favorite, white with white chocolate ganache and raspberry, with white chocolate fondant. Bottom layer, the kids' favorite, chocolate with oreo cream filling and dark chocolate fondant. Got inspiration from ps3884.
Turkeys For School
My first attempt at decorating cookies. Did these last night at 0200. They definitely looked better with sleepy eyes and dim light. Inspired by psneed5's Thanksgiving cookies. She's awesome! They are for my daughter's thanksgiving party today at school. ***Two things I did take away: always outline for a nicer edge and have numerous tips (1,2,3 and 4) on hand so you're not always washing and changing out the tips from color to color. Practice, practice, practice.
Pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese icing. Icing was too thin and didn't stand up too well, also forgot the shimmer sprinkles--maybe next time.
Quick cake I did yesterday to bring to work. White cake with raspberry and white chocolate ganache filling, buttercream icing.
School House Rocks!
Made at about 3 in the morning. My 5 yr old daughter woke up and wanted to help me decorate. I gave her the black edible marker and let her decorate the top tier with the words she knew. Her teacher was moving so it was a going away cake.
A quick cake for a woman who watched my kids while I got to go to my cake decorating classes. BC with gumpaste accents.
Christening Cake For Siblings
Done at 3 in the morning--what a disaster!!! Had loads of trouble moving my cake to the fondant covered board. Vanilla cake with Chocolate Hazelnut Swiss Meringue Buttercream filling.
Hatbox Wedding Cake
Top 2 tiers are dummies, the bottom is Vanilla Bean Cake with Chocolate Hazelnut Swiss Meringue Buttercream filling. It's all dusted with shimmer and platinum dusts.
This is a protea, an Australian wildflower. I put it on my first wedding cake. It took almost all day to make just one.
Vday Mud Cake
Chocolate mud cake, with loads of chocolate truffle filling and chocolate ganache icing (that didn't turn out as supposed to--it's supposed to have a smooth finish--opps) white chocolate bowl and sides with chocolate dipped strawberries. These are my first gumpaste roses.
Valentine Cupcake Bouquet
White cupcakes with BC icing and fondant hearts. Filled with white chocolate strawberry, mocha, and chocolate truffle fillings.
My First Topsy Turvy
I had less than a day notice on this one. This was my first topsy turvy. I totally undercharged but I really wanted to do one of these cakes. Ever since people have seen my mini cakes that I did in these colors, everyone wants them on their cake. It was for someone's wife turning 33, which are the numbers on the blue flowers on top. He really wanted a funky flower design and this is what I came up with. White cake with BC icing and fondant accents.
Georgia's Mini Birthday Cakes
White chocolate cake with white chocolate raspberry filling. BC icing with fondant accents. For a 14 yr old's birthday.
White chocolate cupcakes with white chocolate raspberry filling. BC icing with fondant accents. RI writing.
Ryan's Basketball Birthday Cake
Chocolate cake with whipped chocolate ganache filling. BC icing with fondant accents. Plaque is gumpaste.
I figured green would be different for a Valentine's cake. 4" hex and 5" square, BC icing with fondant accents in blue, ivory and green.
Blue Cherry Blossoms
Grandma's birthday cake. The cherry blossoms are brush embroidered with white shimmer dust on them, but I don't think you can really tell from the photo.
Brady's Party Pinata Cake Interior
Inside of the Party Pinata Cake. It has chocolate shell with white chocolate accents with M&Ms glued all over. I think it's from the Australian Women's Weekly magazine. The child takes a toy hammer and smashes the shell to reveal hidden candy (and cake) inside. The interior is filled with gold chocolate coins, M&Ms and smarties. I will post the interior view.

Chocolate cake underneath the chocolate shell. White chocolate accents with M&Ms glued all over. It's called a Party Pinata cake. I think it's from the Australian Women's Weekly magazine.
