Monkey-Themed Baby Shower Cake
Cake design conceptualized by my friend. This is the first time I've covered a square tier cake, and it's so hard to get those edges sharp, especially the corner at the top. How do you all do it?
Baby Shower Cake Toppers
A baby shower cake was going to be my contribution to the baby shower party we were throwing my friend. But the day before the party, she went into labor! So unfortunately, these toppers never made it on a cake. They're too cute to throw away though, so I think I'll just still give it to my friend as a keepsake for the party that never was. ;) (Sorry for the grainy picture, this is a phone-taken photo.)
Baby Shower Boy Face
Inspired by the numerous baby face cupcake pictures here. I have heard these came from the "Planet Cakes" book. It was fun making them. I made 24 (each with a different hairstyle. hehehe) of them and boxed each individually in a clear box to serve as favors for my friends baby shower party. The pictures are a bit blurry, I got impatient and couldn't wait for my photographer friend who was at the party as well to share the pics. :)
Mom And Baby
Baby shower cake for a very good friend of mine. Iced with buttercream, fondant decorations.
Took me a while to come up with the colors (soho antique gold, gold leaf and soho opal) to exactly match the wedding's motif, but got it right in the end so I'm definitely pleased with this one! :)
Let me just say... to all those who carve 3D cakes, hats off to you guys. This is the first carved cake I've done and I think I'm traumatized by the experience. LOL. Took me forever to do this. I couldn't put in all the details I wanted because I was just exhausted towards the end of it. It's not as polished as I was hoping it would be, but I'm very happy with how it turned out! =)
Dots And Stripes
My first topsy turvy cake. This cake was definitely a learning experience. I'll do better next time, fingers crossed.
Thomas The Train
Thomas and friends. Saw a lot of inspiration for Thomas the Train cakes here on CC! I had to do some research for the other characters as I only know Thomas, Percy and James. I added Gordon and Charlie. Never realized there are sooo many other characters in that show! =)
Angry Birds Cupcake Toppers
I got addicted to this game after downloading it for "research" when my friend asked me to make some Angry birds-themed cupcakes for her son's birthday.
Rainbow And Butterflies
Design was patterned after the invitation. 12" and 8" cakes. 12" is chocolate cake with caramel filling, 8" is yellow cake with chocolate hazelnut filling.
Baptism Cake And Cupcakes
Made this for the baptism of my goddaughter. Color scheme was chosen by the mom, and she requested a sleeping baby as the design. I decided to add the cupcakes.
we had a surprise baby shower for 2 couples. this cake was one of the 2 anne geddes-inspired cakes i made.
A birthday cake for a lady in her 50s. I wanted to try making fondant roses and I wanted the cake to reflect the autumn season, so I decided to make the roses in autumn colors. Dusted with luster dust.
