Did this one in collaboration with my husband. Zoe's head is a rice krispie treat covered in fondant. Her body is a cake (mini wondermold). Gumpaste arms, edible pearl accents, sugar stars, gumpaste tissue paper...this one was so much fun!
Scattered Wedding Gifts
This was a cake for a bride who wanted more of a "scattered" look. She had an inspiration she found online (I don't know who to credit), but we changed it up quite a bit to make it her own cake. The cake was supposed to look like wedding gifts in a garden. I had a really hard time with the fondant on this one because of the humidity....but it came out in spite of it all.
Captain Hook's Ship
This was a cake my husband designed for a Peter Pan themed party. It is his baby....all I did was bake and make fondant. Both of the figurines are out of MMF, and the ship is fondant, airbrushed with royal icing and gumpaste details. Thanks!
Banana Split Cake
I did this cake last year, and it was posted here at CC, but somehow mysteriously disappeared from the website. I've noticed a few people have replicated it, and though I take that as a compliment, I just want to get proper credit for the design as I worked really hard on it. It was based on a cake from my imagination, and one of the cakes most mentioned when people see our website (you can find it there too under "specialty". Thanks! E
Here is our take on the flip flop theme; it was for my niece, Charley, who was turning 3. We wanted it to be girlie, but definitely appealing to a little kid, so we made sure the critters all had cute eyes. It was a big hit at the party!
Blue And White Fondant
This cake was crazy to set up. I only had 30 minutes to get 9it set up. On the 1/2 hour drive to the venue, the cake faded from lavender to light blue. And I forgot the cake stand. I ended up placing the cake on a cake pan I had in the car to raise it up, and then I placed the roses around the base (the roses were going to go in between the top two tiers, but I ended up having to stack the cake). Ironically, the blue color it became matched the tableclothes to a tee, and the client loved it...yay!
This is a buttercream, edible pearls, and the borders are buttercream petals in pink.
Monogram And Red Roses
This was a small simple cake; monogram was using the pin prick method (that is where you put a template over the cake of the monogram, pin prick it, and then pipe royal icing over it). It works pretty well...and not too hard as long as two people work on it (one to hold, one to pin)
Tootsie Roll Sheet Cake
We did this as an alternative to a sculptured cake. They originally wanted a tootsie roll, but did not want to pay the sculptured cake price; so they settled on this sheet cake with a little fondant tootsie roll. I think it came out really fun!
This was light pink fondant, green ribbon, pearls, and dark pink roses....wasn't sure I was liking the color scheme so well (as the bride picked it all out); I think it came together ok, nonetheless.
Military Stetson Hat
My husband did this one with a wee bit of help from me....it is a replica of an army helicopter pilot's stetson hat with his insignias and rank; I am pretty impressed with how my hubby did the insignias.
My First Quinceanara Cake...yay!
I know it is just like a wedding cake, but I was happy I got an order for one.
This was my own design....I wanted the cake to have an Indian embroidered satin purse look (I got the idea from a pocketbook I saw in a magazine). The bride liked my idea, and here is the result.
Topsy Turvy Migraine
This one was a grad cake for a former student....lots of fun to do, but realized that the design was really crazy (she designed it) and quite bright. My husband calls it a migraine headache in cake form!
This was for a bride with a yellow and cocoa themed wedding. Boy, were these swags hard to get even.....anyone have any tips on making perfect swags? I tried the swag maker, but couldn't figure out how to use it.
Fondant with royal piping....I think I have developed carpal tunnel after this one! I used the pinprick method of doing the monogram along with a number 1 tip and black royal icing. I am amazed at how it worked out.
Simple Calla Cake
I just did this wedding cake today. Boy did I have some problems with it. First of all, it was a butter rum cake, and the butter rum sauce caught on fire on the stove. (which thank-God died out) I also had elaborate designs on making long fondant ribbons cascading the tiers. I had my husband put them in the microwave to soften up the fondant, and the ribbons melted!!! So I took what was left, cascaded it, then used satin ribbon for the cascade. I had to use a wilton bow for the same reason!
Jewelry Box Cake
I did this cake for a close family friend for her wedding. They had cake charms, and wanted a unique way to incorporate them. So my idea was to make a jewelry box with an ivy/rose planter on top, and the cake charms from the drawer.
Lambs And Ivy Baby Cake
I did this for my best friend's baby shower....to match her bedroom set she purchased (a lamb's and ivy brand set...Jungle Luv). The plaques are gumpaste and painted.
Humpty Dumpty The 2Nd
THis is our latest humpty dumpty cake.....Humpty is a cake baked in the wondermold pans. The stones were marshmallows airbrushed..
