Island Tiki Hut
This cake required a lot of detail work to add the little extras like pineapples, surfboards, swimsuits, sandals, tiki torches, etc.
Topsy-Turvy Birthday Gifts
Customer wanted an iPhone shooting out the top, as that was the real gift the birthday gal was receiving. Made it out of gum paste.
Thomas The Train Birthday
This 3D cake was a lot of fun to design, and the mother was delighted when it arrived.
Transformers Cupcake Cake
This was my first attempt at the current trend in cup-cake cakes. Wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be.
This cake ended up being nearly 3 feet in length. Had to get a board from the local giant sub sandwich shop to put it on.
Fire Truck Cake
Had to mimick the look of our local Jacksonville fire department's trucks for this one.
The volleyball is covered in fondant panels, while the base is butter cream with fondant cutouts.
The mother was having a reptile guy bring live reptiles to the birthday party for the boys to interact with, so she asked for cupcakes along the same theme.
Star Wars Birthday
This cake had Star Wars characters all around the sides, and each child picked his favorite.
Bird House Birthday
The bird house is actually constructed from white chocolate panels, and the leaves are colored chocolate (something new I tried, but did not like as much as gum paste leaves). The bird is gum paste, and the base is cake.
Baby And Blanket
This was for a baby shower. What took the most time was hand-making each square of "fabric" to assemble into the blanket.
White Daisies Wedding Cake
Though this took many hours of hand-cutting and applying white daisies to each of the three-tiered heart-shaped cakes, this wedding creation had a very unique floral look when completed.
This cake was inspired by a picture in a magazine. The striping in some of the rose petals is my favorite aspect of this cake.
