Inspired by the invitation and mthiberge's Classy Black and White Cake. Thanks for the inspiration! MFF, BC and gumpaste butterflies, swirly spikes and flowers and number topper. Everything was made on cocktail sticks and stuck in and lustered to the max. I am just mad the pics are fuzzy.

The topper is made from all gumpaste and luster dusts and disco dusts on popsicle sticks. That outlining was a real pain! The jewels and pearls and gold coins are also gumpaste. Heart Argyle. Funky letters-Love them!!! Made to match the Pink Pirate Birthday with some glittering gold for a glamour girl pirate.

Stingray Graduation Cupcakes
Fondant stingrays and mini graduation caps for 5th grade class. The Elementary and Middle School's Mascot is The Sharks. The Middle School grades each have their own type of shark, while the Elementary grades have other seal life. My sons class is The Stingrays. I wish they had just been Rays because their teachers name is Mrs. Eagle. How cute would little Spotted Eagle Rays been?! I just showed them to my son who quickly covered his eyes and said, Wait! Tell me when And when I said look his eyes popped out and his jaw droppedLOL He got the most lopsided jaw dropping smirk and said, Those are awesome Mom! I just hope I dont mess them up on the way to class. I hope their little caps dont fall off..Hehe TFL!
Aristocat Marie 2Nd Birthday
This is my daughter's 2 B-day cake. Hand molded figure of Marie from The Aristocats cartoon movie. Aqua, pink, tan, dk brown fondant. I really had a hard time with this cake. We just moved here less then month ago and everything is still new. We planned on inviting a few kids and our closest neighbors to cut the cake. Instead we wound up with an all day house full of anxious cake eaters that would not let me alone..LOL After a million pleas to please go play outsides and don't touch the cake when you point at it... a surprise visit from hubby's Boss bringing his wife by to meet me while I was still in PJ's and up to my elbows in kids and cake stuff I was so done! Needless to say I could not pipe to save my life but couldnt do anything else at the last minute. My much too soft filling that I will never use again (even though it was delish) was bulging out everywhere just to tease me. My new Nikon was crapping out on me and the color is so wrong in those pics! They were the prettiest shades of colors. Though if I had to do it differently I would have put white on the board not the tan-live and learn. Marie took me 4 hours a day before and I was glad to be done with her. I love how cute she turned out. My Daughter loved it and that is all that matters on this one. TFL!
Nanny's Hat Box
I poured myself into this for as much time over a week I could being a Mom of 4. This is for My Grandmother whom I love deeply, is not well and this may be her last Mother's Day. The hat box is two 8" round extra tall layers and wrapped in MFF and dusted and covered wallpaper style in patchwork cutters. I made the gumpaste flowers and they were so hard! The lid nearly killed me because it got stuck to what it was drying on. Thank goodness for big frilly bows! I formed the hat out of gumpaste over a half...
April Fools Cat Box Cake
I made this to fool my kids on April Fools Day. I dirtied up the scooper with royal icing smeared on it and then placed cat poop formed from melted chocolate truffle filling and added royal icing kitty litter to it. The litter is chopped up royal icing in three shades of gray. I staged this pic with an un-opened box of litter that we use and a boy it looks like it needs to be forked out! I fooled my kids by yelling at them because they didn't do thier cat box chore in a few days(I didn't remind them on purpose to build up for this) And yelled at them and shook it in front of them and a big poop plopped out and bounced of my son's chest. Then I licked the scooper and ate a little of one of the nuggets and -April Fools! They were knocked out by it! Soo much fun!
This is my first fondant covered gift box with a lid and Sugarshack bow, tassle...ect I made everything and then remade it till I was happy...LOL The tassle was made using my cheep clay extruder and smooshing it together in the right way. I added thin rope to Sharon's bow and made a faux broach accented with crystals and dusted with highlighter. The ink pot reads, l'encre noire- which means black ink. The love note reads, Ma Cherie, Tu as couer 'a jamais.-which means My Darling, My heart is yours forever. Made with all the love in my heart for my Darling.
This was for my Daughters 6th B-day. I went overboard but she loved it! SO much fun. The topper is gumpaste and hardened fondant. Everything was hand shaped and dried and dusted or painted. Can I just say I LOVE the new Disco Glitter Dusts! TFL!
I free handed these because I could not find the mold. What do you think? I used a photo copy of the First Impressions Angel Wings2( black and white photo copy seen in picture)
Green And Gold
I just got some new supplies and wanted to try a few things. I wished this could have been two tiered. These are my first gum paste flowers. I really tried to challenge myself on design. I welcome constructive criticism and tips.
Double B-Day Cakes
Bottom tiers are 9" and the top tiers are 6". Covered in fondant and sponged for a dip dyed paint job, swirl pattern and luster dusted for extra sparkle.
Funny Father's Day 2008
"Holy Cow Crap You Are A Moo-velous Dad!" We Udder'ly Love Ewe!"(across the front) barnyard signs around the whole cake...What happens in the BARN... Stays in the BARN, NO TIPPING!... KEEP OUT!
Sk8Er Boi Park-Skateboarding
It is three layers of cake then carved out the skate park ramp, bowls, stairs and shapes, butter creamed and the top was overlayed in fondant that was molded around all the cut outs. The butter ceam sides were spray painted with yello, green and blue. The stair rail is dry RI painted with silver glaze -which I won't ever use again. Painted with gel colors by brush to resemble grafitti and popular logos. I ran out of time but wanted to put more logos around the sides and a few mini skate boards.
Fourth Of July 2008 Bald Eagle
This is 6' high 8 inch round cake(3 layers). Red Velvet and Buttercream. The Bald Eagle is 100% edible and formed from cereal and covered in grass blade shaped fondant feathers, knife carved for detail and hand painted with gel colors. We still have him on a shelf . We just couldn't eat him and now we can't throw him away..LOL
