This Was Done For A Client Having A Ny Giants Themed Baby Shower For Her Daughter And Son In Law Lots Of Fun To Do Especially Since I Had
This was done for a client having a NY Giants themed baby shower for her daughter and son-in-law. Lots of fun to do, especially since I had done the wedding cake for this couple! Full-sheet cake featuring one side Coconut Cake with a Key Lime filling, and the other side a Red Velvet cake with Cheesecake Mousse filling..frosted with my French Buttercreme with fondant decorations.
Boat Theme 1St Birthday
Not an original idea of mine (client found pic online), but really cute! Buttercream frosting with fondant accents and fondant shells. Sails are wafer paper. The little boat in the front is the birthday boy's "smash cake".
Airplane Theme Cake
Although this was not my original idea (client saw it online), I thought it came out pretty cute. Buttercream frosting with fondant airplanes and "2" topper.
Moulin Rouge Wedding Cake
This was done for a friend's daughter -they were having a Moulin Rouge themed wedding! Each cake was a different flavor (Red Velvet, Lemon/Rasp, Choc w/ peanut butter filling, and Yellow w/ choc mousse) and featured a different icon of the movie. Everything is edible! Instead of "Moulin Rouge", the letters on the bottom tier spell out the names of the bride and groom.
Hardhat Birthday Cake
This hard hat was made for my son's 23rd birthday, in honor of his new engineering job. He pointed out that an engineer's hat is white. LOL oh well- yellow was cuter! Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting convered with fondant.
Raul's Groom's Cake
This Groom's cake was done for a Mexican groom that loved Salsa dancing. His bride requested his favorite cake: Peach Tres Leches. Thank goodness for the recipes here on CC! I had never heard of this, let alone made one! LOL The cake is frosted with my "Cheesecake Mousse" (cream cheese and whipped cream) and decorated with a Frozen Buttercream Transfer. Another first for me! Worked out ok. Sure wish I had known about this method YEARS ago! LOL Anyway, the Groom loved the cake!
This cake was done for the wedding of my daughter's best friend, who was marrying a man originally from Mexico. They had found the inspiration for this cake on The Knot. They selected a tile pattern and then I recreated the tiles in fondant using their wedding colors of purple and lime green.
Teal & Lime Green Cutie
This little cake was made for a friend. They had chosen to serve an alternative dessert, but still wanted a fun little cake so they could do the traditional cake cutting ceremony. French Buttercreme frosted with fondant accents.
Minnie Mouse Cake
This cake was for my son's girlfriend on her 18th birthday- she (and her family) are HUGE Disney fans! After I realized I had sold my MM character pans, I decided to check out the galleries for ideas....well, there were about 15 pages of this design, so I figured I would simply add my version to the pile! LOL Thanks CC'ers! She LOVED it!
Penn State Grad Cake
This Penn State family requested their fav: WASC cake with strawberry cream filling and my French Buttercreme frosting. Yum! Nothing fancy about this one- a fondant logo and piped paw prints on the sides.
This cake was done for our 2011 State Cake Show. It is done in the Nirvana style with floodwork collars and panels. I took a class to learn Australian stringwork that weekend, so maybe for the ICES convention this summer I will add some stringwork on the inside edge of the top collar!
Bridal Shower Petite Fours
These hearts in white chocolate were Pink Champagne with Strawberry mousse. Yum!
Spiral Spring Flowers
Buttercream frosted cake in a spiral shape, with cascading royal icing spring flowers. The ridged design on the sides was created with an impression mat.
This is the snowflake themed cake I did for my own 50th birthday party. My first attempt at the 'chilled fondant panels' method. Panels were cut, then placed in the freezer for a bit, then attached to the cake. Much easier to handle that way! Also did vanilla cupcakes with blue buttercream and chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting. Each was accented with a little fondant snowflake.
This was for a small December wedding. Sorry the pic is so blurry-must have been in a hurry to leave! Cake features my French Buttercream Frosting with buttercream cornelli lace and swiss dot design, ribbon and fondant pearl border.
Spiral Wedding Cake
This fall wedding cake was made for a friend. It was inspired by a cake he saw in one of my ICES newsletters, but now I can't recall which one so I can't give credit where credit is due. The cake was to be a total spiral, but mid-construction I decided to opt out and just do this modified topsy-turvy style. Cake is frosted with my French Buttercreme and features Red Velvet cake and some "tuxedo" cake (top layer WASC and bottom layer choc), both with my cheesecake mousse filling. The Bride and Groom loved it, so that is all that mattered.
Daisy Shower Cake
I don't do many cakes any more, but did this bridal shower cake for a co-worker recently. This was my first attempt at full-size gumpaste daisies (I've done little ones), and I loved them! My only irritation was that I only had a Choco-Pan/fondant mixture to do the wrap...and I HATE working with Choco-Pan! Oh well, the client loved it, and that is all that matters! The cake was Lemon torted with Raspberry and Raspberry Creme fillings. Yum!
Woodland Wedding Cake
This is my daughter's wedding cake! We found 2 photos here on CC and another from a wedding magazine that were inspiration for this 7 tier creation. It featured gumpaste ferns, oak leaves and acorns and the cutest little mushrooms! This was actually an all-styrofoam dummie display with a small section cut out for a piece of real cake for the cake cutting ceremony. I made double-layer sheet cakes for the caterer to serve.
Pumpkin Wedding Cake
This fondant-covered pumpkin tower was a re-creation of a tiered pumpkin cake that I THINK came from here on CC...let me know if it was yours so I can give you credit!! It was a lot of fun to make. Flavors were Applesauce Spice with Apple filling and French Buttercreme frosting, Pumpkin Spice with Pumpkin Mousse and Cream Cheese frosting.
Wedding Dress Cookies
These are the cookie favors I made for my daughter's bridal shower. It's hard to see, but the rolled buttercream was imprinted with a lace mold, then dusted with pearl dust. Cute!
Ivory fondant with black buttercream scrollwork and black icing on the cake board. Originally did not plan on using the ribbon at the base of the tiers, but after the scrolls were done, it just begged for something else! :) Bridal colors were ivory, black and olive green.
Chinese Baby Shoes
Aren't these the sweetest little things!? Thanks to all the cc members with their baby shoe patterns! This cold porcelain pair was textured with a ribbed rolling pin and feature a little ladybug for good luck. TFL
This cake was for a shower for a couple adopting a little 3 yr old Chinese girl. I just love the little shoes! They are made of cold porcelain and feature a little Ladybug for good luck. The ladybug at the base is glass-a keepsake. Small orchids are purchased gp. TFL
