Look Out Mousie!!!
This cake was made on request---a cat chasing a mouse, or rather, as it turned out, a cat getting ready to pounce on the mouse... The cake and frosting are all in buttercream icing, but the cat, mouse, trap and yarn are made with marshmallow fondant. :)
Brother And Sisters' Birthday Cake
I made this cake for our neighbors' 2 children whose birthdays are close together. They loved it! The frosting is all butter cream and the balloons and presents are just cut out pieces of extra cake I had from leveling the tops. :)
Have A Happy Baaaarthday!
I made this cake for my dad's cousin's 55th birthday, as he's a sheep rancher. :) It was one of the easiest cakes I've made!
Yellow Roses In Different Ways...
I made this colorful cake at the request of friends of ours for their wedding. Their colors were bright yellow and blue, so they asked me to make bright yellow roses and to get some blue on the cakes as well. You can see the results. :)
This was a cake I made for friends of ours, on the arrival of their little boy. The background and clothing is made with marshmallow fondant (some of it I marbled) and the rest is buttercream icing.
This is the cake I made for my parents' anniversary, when they got back from a trip to see the ocean. It's made with buttercream icing and crushed nuts for the sand...
I made this cake for my brothers' 15th birthday. It's made out of buttercream, except for the marshmallow pegs. :)
I made this for my grandpa's 80th birthday party. The candles are made using Marshmallow Fondant. Grandpa really enjoyed his cake!
Cowboy Hat Cake
I made this cake for my dear friends' wedding--a western event, to be sure! The fondant is all Marshmallow Fondant and I had to use coffee cups to hold the brim of the hat up until it dried....
I had a request for a kitty cake and this is what I came up with... The kitties are made out of marshmallow fondant, as is the yarn. I wish I'd gotten a picture of the little girls' eyes when she saw the cake for the first time. :)
Polka Dot Cake
This was a request I had for a baby shower cake. I used Marshmallow Fondant and it worked well. I've recently had a request for another cake just like this, from someone who saw the original cake. :)
I designed this quilt block cake for a friend who likes to sew and quilt... She loved it!
Purple Birthday Cake
I made this simple cake for our neighbor's birthday. It's all buttercream icing...
Little Girl Carrying A Cake...
I made this cake for a friend's daughter's birthday. The little girl design came from a pattern for embriodery (usually used on dish towels), but I thought she'd look cute on a cake as well! The cake is chocolate and the icing is Butter Cream--except for the girl who's made with colored piping gel.
Unique 30Th Anniversary Cake
Some friends of mine asked me to make a cake that had mountains; a valley; a covered wagon; and some lillies on it. This was what my cake looked like at the end of a long afternoon... :) (The cake is a carrot cake with butter cream icing.)
My Grandpa's 80 Birthday Cake~
My grandpa really likes chocolate cake, but my grandma really doesn't, so she had me make a carrot cake this time. For the icing, I made a recipe I got from a friend--a Buttercream of sorts, but it uses real butter. It tastes SO much better than the shortning type, in my opinion, but it gives a different texture to the cakes that is a little harder to work with!
My Brother's Graduation Sheet Cakes
I made these cakes with buttercream icing and melted some dark and white chocolate and put it in a plastic-sandwhich keeper to make the caps. Our cake cutter appreciated the lines so that she knew how big to make the pieces.
A Lego Cake!
I made this cake for my brother's graduation from high-school. As he really likes Legos, I decided to decorate with some of them... There were some little boys at the graduation open house that really liked the cake and just stood and stared at it for several minutes. :)
This is the cake I made for two girls' confirmation. The whole thing is iced in buttercream with edible sparkles on top.
Guy's Graduation Cake
I made this cake for a person I didn't know, so I went with a basic graduation theme and blue edging, as it was for a guy. The whole cake is done with buttercream icing...
Sunflower 80Th Birthday Cake
I made this for a farmer's surprise 80th birthday. The icing is all buttercream and the sunflowers are made with halves of Oreo cookies. I saw this idea here, so have no claim to originality. :)
This cake was my first attempt at making a cake that looked like a stack of pancakes. The person I gave it to actually thought it was pancakes at first, and wondered why I'd brought them along, as they already had a meal prepared. :) I used fondant to make the "Pancakes" and the butter.
