Black And White W/ Red Gerberas
This cake is covered in fondant and the design is piped with royal icing to match the wedding invitations. The bride is a graphic artist and she designed how she wanted the cake to look. I absolutely love what she chose for her cake!
This is a vanilla cake with raspberry filling covered with vanilla and chocolate fondant.
Ganache Snowflake Cake
This is vanilla cake with mocha filling and chocolate ganache. This is my second time trying ganache and it turned out way better this time, although I expected it to be more firm than it was once it set. Thanks for looking!
This multi-theme cake was somewhat difficult to pull together - I was asked to include several favorite items on one cake. Here's what I came up with. I made up the "WONDERWORD" puzzle myself and it actually works!
My Wedding Cookies!
These are the cookies we made for my wedding! I made the cookie cutters and had some help baking and decorating them. I wish I had a better picture! NFSC and Royal Icing.
I had fun making these although they took forever! I had to make a total of 24 little dinosaurs. Once I got the hang of it I was able to work a little faster though. Thanks for looking!
Kindergarten Graduation Cake!
I made this for the Kindergarten rooms I work in for their graduation. It is designed to match the certificates we are handing out. Thanks for looking!
Couch Cake Construction
Here's a sketch of how I made my "Valentine Cats" couch cake. I baked a 12"x12"x2" cake and then cut pieces out of it to make about a 10" long couch. I numbered the pieces in my sketch in the order I put them together. I cut two large rectangles for the base and put filling between them. Then I put the back of the couch on top and inserted 3 evenly spaced drinking straws as "dowels" for support. I carved Twinkie shapes from rectangles for the arms and inserted straws to keep them in place.
Triple Birthday Cake
The person I made this cake for drew a picture of what he had in mind (3 different levels of cake rounds) and left the rest up to me, so here's what I came up with!
Nurse Practitioner Cookie Bouquet
I made this for my sister who just graduated as a nurse practitioner!
Dachshund Wedding Shower Cookies
No Fail Sugar Cookies and Royal Icing - The bride's Dachshund is going to be the ring barer!
Buffalo Bills Birthday Cake
This is a carved chocolate cake with a peanut butter chocolate mousse filling and chocolate frosting underneath marshmallow fondant. I had a terrible time with the fondant - it seems any time I add dark coloring to marshmallow fondant, it just keeps wanting to crumble. I hope there are other fondant recipes out there that work better with coloring! If anyone has one that works better I'd love to know! Thanks!
