Pretty standard, except pocket was detailed with "stitching". Tie had a very cool red/yellow/orange mottled look from mixing different colors of fondant.
Just a little 6" cake that I didn't know what to do with, so decided to play. Used purple food color, but it looks blue in the photo. Tapits for the letters and a gumpaste butterfly.
Done for a young man who turned 30 on opening day of deer season. Sides are airbrushed camo. Tent is gumpaste/fondant. Fire is pretzels and bc. Figures are fondant; antlers twisted wires dipped in chocolate.
Char's Triple Header
This cake was for my accountant's "Triple Header" party celebrating her birthday, their 25th anniversary and the 20th anniversary of her business. She asked that it be a baseball theme and very chocolate-y. Everything that you see is edible except the board and the skewers holding the banner and flags. This was a big cake; the baseball diamond is made with a 12" square cut in half and stacked and two 18" half-circles stacked. The bottom cake is a half sheet.
I made this for the final class for a Quickbooks course that I took--class was a miserable experience, but making the cake was fun! Everything is edible except the cardboard cake board that I covered in fondant for the mortarboard top for the cap. First time using my EI printer--still working out the bugs on that, but getting there.
First Gumpaste Moth Orchid
Turned out nicely, but I still am looking for a great way to use these on a cake.
My First Gumpaste Orchid
I'm not happy with the coloring on the petals, but overall it was a good first attempt. Definitely need to get faster at this!
Flip Flops With Snowflakes
My son and his family returned from a Florida vacation on the day that we got the worst snow and ice storm of the season. What a shock it must have been to get on the plane with sun and 80's, and to get off in cold, wet yuck blowing sideways. To ease the pain I made them this flip-flops cake with snowflakes and icicles hanging off the edge.
This was a gift for a friend. Her birthday is Feb. 13, Valentine's is the 14th and their anniversary is the 17th. The tag reads "Happy Annivalenbirthday".
Hb said "do we HAVE to have a cake? -- I'd really rather have brownies". I thought, "I can decorate brownies!" and said sure, no problem. The guys loved them.
Buttercream with RI floral design and fondant roses and ribbon. Layers are 2", 4" and 6".
Tim's Birthday 2007
Scratch carrot cake with cream cheese icing. Fondant snowflakes and holly leaves.
Cornucopia With Fruit
This was my first try at a carved cake. Pretty messy to do, but turned out nice. Pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese icing. Ice cream cone tail. Fruit is real, frosted with superfine sugar.
Closeup of tape measure that goes with duct tape cake. I'm in the beginning stages of a remodel and reached for this thing at least a half-dozen times to measure something!
