Chicago Bears Football
I think this has been my most popular theme so far. I've also noticed that all the boys who have gotten these cakes are 12 years old! My customer ordered this for her son who turned 12 and is a HUGE Bears fan. Jersey is Satin Ice fondant and the Bears logo is a FBCT. The rest is BC. Oh, this cake is a 9x13.

I was sent a picture of a cake the little boy really wanted and this is my version of it. Everything BC.

Cowboy Birthday Cake
I got a last minute call last night about making this cake. The mom wasn't happy with the cake she bought from the bakery so she found me and asked. She let me know what the party theme was and I made the cake to match the decorations. It's a 9x13 chocolate fudge cake with hazelnut creamer (WOW....good chocolate cake). it's iced in BC with mmf lasso, cowboy picture, and chap fringe. I added the fringe on the bottom to make it look more like a cowboy.
This is for a little girl who just loves Hannah Montana. Her favorite colors are pink and purple and her mom wanted it really girly. I drew the guitar and the flourishes straight from the invitations and the MMF cd I made for the topper. The cd is just a picture I printed out on cardstock, laminated and mounted on mmf. The stars are mmf with tylose powder. This is a strawberry cake iced in BC.
Spongebob Barney Elmo Birthday Cake
Here's a birthday cake for a little boy who just loves Spongebob, Barney and Elmo. So, she couldn't decide between the three so I used them all. All figures are MMF with tylose powder to dry quicker. Spongebob's house is rice krispie treats with MMF covering. I tried to make the bottom tier look like Elmo's playing block spell out the birthday boy's name. TFL!
Santa Claus Hot Cocoa Cake
I just love all the cup of hot cocoa cakes on here that I decided to do one for my family's Christmas. This design was so easy and fun to do.

Santa Claus Cake
This is my take on sweetpea8's wonderful creation. Instead of a cupcake cake I carved the shape out of a 1/2 sheet cake. Everything is BC except for the red hat. I just realized that I forgot his glasses so I'll add those in the morning. This is for my son's daycare Christmas party tomorrow.

Tennesse Titans Football Helmet
This was for my husband's birthday. He's a huge Tennesse Titans fan. This was a crazy cake to do, yet so much fun. I used two 9 inch round cakes and then a smaller cake baked in a pyrex bowl for the dome. Carved for the same. The face guard is made of 50/50 mmf/gumpaste. The helmet was then covered in mmf and the logo is also mmf. Funny thing, when my brother-in-law came over for the party he propped his elbow up on the cake thinking it was a real helmet and he smushed it a little! MEN!!!
Police Academy Graduation Badge
This cake was requested by an officer graduating from the Police Academy tomorrow. It's a 1/2 sheet cake carved in the shape of the police badge.

Pink Purple Roller Skate Cake
This is for a customer's 7 year old daughter's birthday. The party's theme is roller skating. I asked what the little girl's favorite colors were and what she looked like. From there, I used her favorite colors of pink and purple and made a fondant figure of the little girl. This was my first time using the diamond impression mat and making ribbon roses. The cakes are iced in BC, with fondant ribbons, stripes, roller skates and the little girl's name. I've been dying to do a girly cake!

This was my first time using fondant to cover my cake board. Many thanks to nautkl1 on helping with the slippers.
Baby Boy Shower
This cake was so much fun to do. It's for a baby shower for my sister-in-law's co-worker.

This is the birthday cake I made for my son's 4th birthday. Brennan is such a Fantastic 4 fan and I wanted to make this extra special for him. This was my first time using MMF to make the letters to spell his name as well as using MMF for the number 4 on top. MMF plaques aren't edible since I don't have edible ink. They are photo paper on MMF. Melted chocolate on the bottom layer to make it look like The Thing. Top layer and the number 4 piped with BC to look like flames for Johnny, the Human Torch.
