Sorry, this is a better picture! Flowers made from gum-paste and some from fondant/gum-paste mix. So much work into this multi-tiered cake and cupcake set-up. Grateful for "Ebay" - cake stands,"Dollar Tree" and "Efavormart" for decorations. 2018 I retired from making cakes. So very grateful to Cake Central and the entire Cake Community for everything I've learned over the years of your sharing. Be Blessed. Hamsquad(Pam Brown).
Unicorn Baby Shower - Parker Rose
The main cake was a sour cream red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, in place of fondant, for Mommy-to Be, we use white chocolate modeling chocolate. The cupcakes were from scratch red velvet, yellow cupcakes with cooked chocolate frosting and yellow vegan cupcakes topped with a lemon glaze with piped cream cheese frosting.

I was honored to make her wedding cake with cups cakes. The cakes and cupcakes were vegan with cooked frosting. We also covered 3 of the cakes in Buttercream Fondant.
Another Birthday For My Aunt!
My sisters called me again this year to make a surprise 88th birthday cake. We collaborated on something different this year a "Cake Tray" with paper flower arrangement to match.

Eli And Naima's Wedding Cake
My family and I surprised my nephew and his bride with this old fashioned wedding cake this past weekend. I tried to recreate an old fashion wedding cake from the past. I hand painted plastic scrolls with thinned Royal Icing and spray gold with Wilton Color Mist. Dang that took a long for me to do! This a hand piped buttercream frosting cake. The flowers are also buttercream frosting, some were air-dried! I really wanted to try an old school butter-cream frosted cake, there were some mistakes, but the Bride and Groom loved it and that's what matters!
Music Notes For Birthday Celebration!
I just realized I hadn't posted a picture of one of my great niece's birthday cake! My dear "Sugar Lump" requested cupcakes in the shape of music notes. I thought to myself, self, you always wanted to try making bubble gum roses, well, here's your chance. I also, made starburst flowers with gum balls. I used ribbon bubble gum, with a touch of water and stuck the petals on "Dum-Dum Suckers". Thanks to all who posts such wonderful ideas!
This is not my design, but I had fun duplicating this cake for a friend's father who loves to go to the casino, The Cubs and music! This record player (2nd one I've made) is made from candy clay/modeling chocolate mixed with fondant. Under the decorations is a buttercream frosted vanilla cake. The other items that were not edible, were the ball and numbers. Coins were chocolate candy. I also used sugar sheet and edible marker for record label. Thanks for Looking!
Grand Niece's Breakfast Birthday!
This was my 1st time making a cake for LaNiya, she wants to be a chef. She bakes for her family constantly. So her Mom requested a cupcake cake in the shape of a apron and she wanted her favorite foods on her apron - breakfast foods - bacon, eggs and pancakes. The decorations were made from Wilton candy melts - candy clay mixed with fondant. The bacon was real.
Had fun experimenting making peony flowers without wires. I experimented using styrofoam balls cut in half. I did the same with the gold and cream cabbage rose.
A Pair Of Shoes For You!
A pair of candy melt high heel shoes with molded bows. Ganache frost on chocolate cupcakes. The arrangement was decorated with a gum-paste orchid and candy clay roses.
Peach And Gold
Gumpaste roses, peonies, irises, and sweet peas were put on a fondant cover dummy cake. Thanks to everyone who posted tutorials. I've learned a lot. I tried a little Bas Relief with a mold I made. I tried hand painting scroll work. The large flowers were made without wires. Thanks to McGreevy's tutorials on Youtube. Sweet peas - Elaine McGregor on Youtube. I learned to much with this practice cake. I still love cakes with separators. Thanks for Looking!
Music For Her 21St Birthday!
Cake restored for our family friend LaQuinna. She had a bad mishap at a big box store! It came to me with no frosting or filling! LaQuinna and I decorated her cake. She had to cut, glue and paint the candy clay I made for the decorations. I broke out the "Cricut Cake Cutter" to cut "Wilton Sugar Sheets" letters. The cake was decorated in butter cream frosting. The candy clay was made from "Wilton Candy Melts" - rose, piano keys, microphone/cord and the number 21. Top tier spray red with "Wilton Color Mist Spray". Yeah, done in time for her 21st Birthday parties - 2.
55Th Halloween Birthday
I broke out my dusty Cake Cricut to cut out Wilton white sugar sheets that were sprayed orange for the branches with leaves for the top tier as well as the leaves with the cutout. I also tried out the sugar lace I purchase at a local craft store to hand pipe the spider webs. That stuff was pretty easy to use. The rest of the decorations are candy clay tombstones, half moons andghosts. Gum-paste was used to make the spiders and roses. The top tier was covered with black sugar sheets instead of frosting or fondant.
55Th Birthday Purse Cake For Ms. Moore!
This purse cake was requested by a dear family friend who grew up with my family in my home town. Well, at the present my friend is suffering from some very serious medical conditions that can take her life. But thru much prayer I know she can pull thru! Some weeks ago she contacted me and asked that this year she wanted a real birthday cake. One of her conditions is diabetes. My response was, "if I make you a real cake and something happens to you, I would have to resurrect from the grave", at which she just laughed really hard. This cake is a doctored "No sugar" cake mix covered with doctored Rich's Bettercreme. Since I could not put sugar sheets on this frosting (Wilton) I put a thin layer of my fondant at the top of the purse covered with wafer paper. I was able to see thru the wafer paper to hand drawn the "Gucci" pattern with an edible marker. Next, I added the red, black and green Wilton sugar sheets. It was finished with black fondant mixed with black candy clay. My instructions to her, were to scrape all the decorations off then eat. All and all she reported back that she loved her cake, it tasted delicious and her grandchildren want another one! So God is Good! Thanks for letting me share!
Happy Graduation 2015
My dear niece graduated from college and she requested this special cupcake display for her party. The cupcakes were red velvet with cream cheese frosting and vanilla cupcakes with strawberry and whipped cream filling in the center with cream cheese frosting. The 6" cake is the same as the vanilla cupcakes. The decorations were made from fondant with the exception of the cupcake graduation cap picks.
Roses And Letters For Mom's Birthday!
I was asked to make the letter "G" and the letter "J" for a surprise cake for a birthday for the 4th of July! Since Mom was of a vintage age, I had to do "old school cake decorating"! This is a hand carved vanilla letter cakes with chocolate filling and butter cream frosting used fore everything! I haven't piped frosting like this in awhile. Thanks for Looking!
Baby Carriage For Mykel!
Thanks to Nanny 1620 here on CC the original designer of this cake. One of my cake babies asked me to make this for her for a baby shower. This is my attempt, just royal icing drop flowers, vanilla cupcakes with butter-cream frosting and fondant tappit letters. Thanks for looking!
My 1St Pulled Sugar Rose
During the heavy snow and frigid cold and no where I wanted to go, I went to my cake cabinet and pulled out some old "Lorann's Hard Candy Mix". I next, went and reviewed Youtube.com for how to make pulled sugar roses along with a 1970 something "Wilton, Modern Cake Decorating" book. Voila' my childhood dream came true! The hot sugar felt good on my hands while pulling the sugar - arthritis! I had fun! For me, it was a moment in time! TFL

Samuel And Angelia's Wedding Cake
A smaller version of the silver and purple wedding cake, this was done in red, cream and silver. I use leftover red gum-paste flowers along withe silver silk flowers. I also took ribbon and sprayed an olive oil cooking spray, then rubbed it in evenly to get a darker ribbon. This is a butter-cream frosted cake. Thanks for Looking! Best Wishes to the Bride and Groom
David And Edna's Wedding Day!
Butter-cream frosted cake decorated with red gum-paste roses and fondant pearl border. I lined the satin ribbon with parchment paper for the border. I had a hard time getting it to stay on the ribbon. I think I will just stick to wax paper on my next adventure! LOL - TFL
I Love Fuchsia And Gold!
I want to thank so many who post tutorials - "Luster Dusting a Fondant Cake". I've gotten the chance to practice some new techniques. This cake was inspired from my old Wilton Wedding Cake Magazines. The silicone molds are Wilton, Wilton Fondant, even the flower cutters for the gold and white blossom flowers. The larger flowers are royal icing hydrangeas. I had FUN!!!! This is a Dummy Cake.

Gi Gi's Wedding Cake
I truly started not to post this cake I made this past weekend for my niece Gi Gi's Wedding. This is the third time I have made this puppy, it is a lot of work with adding 6 stairs, gum-paste roses and hydrangeas and candles. This is a butter-cream frosted cake with gum-paste and fondant decorations. Truthfully, my niece was worth it and my family went all out to help, we lost power in our neighborhood from Monday - Thurs due to storms and tornadoes. The cake was due Saturday in WI. What a week, but this was the result. TFL (again LOL)
