Valentine's Day Mini Cakes
Did these three as a design preview for a customer, French Vanilla with strawberry filling, vanilla butter cream icing. Contained in ceramic Hearts
Miller Bday Cake, Top View
French Vanilla with strawberry filling, buttercream icing with edible luster dusted pearls
Baby Lucas' Baby Shower
French Vanilla with strawberry filling, BC icing, stars are made of fondant, Moon is made of Gumpaste. I truly enjoyed doing this cake! I have seen many others with similar ones, thanks for the inspiration :)
Wendy's Birthday Cake
My first attempt at Ganache! I love the way it looks, that perfect shine :). I used ghirardelli's bitter sweet chocolate for the ganache, hershey's semi sweet chocolate for the frosting, dark chocolate & white chocolate candy melts for the stars & writing, and dark chocolate fudge for the cake. I was told the ganache did well to balance out the sweetness of the overall cake. Truly a chocoholic's dream come true :).
Thanksgiving Cake Side By Side
I made two of these. One is pumpkin spice, the other is vanilla. I used creamcheese BC icing.
Tiffany's Baby Shower Cake
This cake just super reinforced how much I hate character cake pans :). I really, really, really wanted to stay away from using the typical 'stars' but, as you can see, I didn't completely escape it!
First Cake Ever Decorated
Yeah I've come a long way! I remember feeling overwhelmed with this cake, trying to figure out how to ice it smoothe...
Happy Father's Day
This is the typical basket cake you learn to make in the Wilton's class. Was easy to make another one for fathers day :).
Reggie's Birthday Cake
This was a last minute cake made for someone at my husbands work. No one would tell me what they wanted and I wasn't paid for it, and I didn't know the guy either ... was hard to come up with anything. Made candles of royal icing, as well as the lettering and stars.
I made this as a thank you cake for my husband's work throwing us a baby shower. The daisies are royal icing.
Marissa's 1St Birthday
This was taken before writing Happy Birthday Marissa! on the cake. The little girl *loved* picking each lady bug off of her cake to carefully inspect then eat them. I made the ladybugs & flowers with royal icing.
Dad's 50Th Birthday Chocolate Cake
Also borrowed from the Wilton's Wedding Cake book. Used mint dark chocolate for the leaves and scrolls, as well as the lacing on the top of hte cakes, painting the lacing and some scrolls nad leaves with antique gold luster dust.
