I teach an afterschool cake decorating studio at my daughter's school and this was a cake that my students (ages 7 to 10) decorated for the school's annual chili cookoff. Our inspiration was the cake on the cover of the latest Confetti cakes for kids book. I am so proud of my girls, I think they did an awesome job! All iced in buttercream.

Follow Your Heart
I made this cake for one of my daughter's teachers who was moving away for love. Iced in BC with fondant heart & wings. I think this is my favorite cake that I have done so far (besides my "slice of cake" cake).
Ice Skate Cake
Inspired by a cake from Glass Slipper Gourmet. Buttercream with fondant skates and edible glitter. You can't really tell from the picture but I put confectioner's glaze on the skates..I think I should have built up a couple of coats to make it shinier.
Green Wedding Cake
Guacamole anyone? I did this wedding cake for my daughter's teacher. She was having an intimate wedding and wanted something whimsical. The green turned out a little more green than I wanted..next time I would start with a yellow base and add just a drop of green. 1st tier is 10" and 2nd tier is 8"..each has 3 layers of vanilla cake. Iced in BC with fondant flowers.
Wondermold on top of 2 9" vanilla cakes, iced in BC with fondant flowers. I had flowers left over from my wedding cake, so it worked out perfect to put them on her dress.

I made a flip flop cake for my daughter's end of school "luau" party. Straps are made out of fruit roll ups. I also made white chocolate seashells and dusted them with pearl luster dust.
Made this for a friend's graduation. Stack of books with cap on top. I still have a hard time working with the fondant which covered cardboard for the top of the cap. But it still turned out cute and she really liked it.
Tiered Alice in Wonderland cake..tiers are just single layers of cake. Each tier is supposed to tell a different part of the story..topped with giant "Eat Me" cupcake.
