Calvin & Hobbes Snowmen
A collection of snowman scenes from the "Calvin & Hobbes" cartoon strip; made for my son's 8th birthday. Buttercream cake, fondant figures. Inspired by TJCanadian's cake of the same theme.
Holly leaf sugar cookies arranged in a wreath, with royal icing pinecones. The cookies in the center are pecan sandie "Snowballs". My brother liked this more than his real gift!
Shaun The Sheep
Figures are made from fondant and royal icing, stonework is piped in buttercream. My personal favorite is Timmy, with his teddy and pacifier.
Great centerpiece/dessert for a holiday gethering. Buttercream poinsettia piped right on the cake, gumpaste holly leaves
Frosty The Snowman
10" & 6" tiers, snowman made with small stand-up bear pan with ears trimmed off, all buttercream except for fondant hat, broom, and pipe. This was for my son, who was crazy about Frosty, and has a Christmas birthday.
Gumpaste dendrobium orchids & stephanotis, royal icing filigree butterflies, fondant ribbons and piped emboidery painted w/24 gold dust
