This cake design is from Peggy Porschen's lastest book. It was one of my first tries at anemones! The cake is white chocolate with lime filling. I think I added too many dots...but it was fun to make.

I had seen so many beautiful versions of these here on CC, that I just had to try them myself. They certainly aren't as pretty as some of the others, but I enjoyed making them and they tasted so good! Vanilla buttercream on devil's food cake. They didn't last long at the Christmas party...

The cupcakes were chocolate with vanilla buttercream filling and vanilla with lemon filling topped with vanilla buttercream and a fondant hibiscus flower.
I made this our 7th anniversary. I attempted to follow the beautiful cake found here by Merissa. White cake with lemon filling, all buttercream flowers with chocolate butterflies. The flowers are a bit brighter than I would have liked, but I was trying to use up some leftover icing! It tasted yummy and it was a good chance to practice flowers.
Blue's Clues Friends
These are close ups of all the chocolate transfers from the Blue's Clues cake. There were definitely a few problems in all of the transfers, but this was my first making more detailed chocolate transfers. It took days to make them, but I had fun and was happy with how they cam out!

Pooh And Piglet
I made this for my son's first birthday. He is a big Piglet fan. It was my first try at scupting figures out of fondant and I was very happy with how they turned out. It was also my best attempt at smooth buttercream. I used Melvira's method to smooth the icing. I am going to keep working at it, but I was happy with the cake. The cake was white chocolate whisper cake with lemon filling and vanilla buttercream.
