Dear Friend Who Raced Cars
Birthday cake made for the best man in our wedding (who raced cars, and went 4 wheelin' with us back in the day) while he was in the hospital. (Sadly, he passed away two days after his birthday and is deeply missed. His wife thanked me for helping to make his last birthday a special one & said he enjoyed the cake. I was just thankful that I got the opportunity to do something for him while he was with us.) It was literally thrown together on a spur of the moment idea while working on the B&W Grad cake.
Red, White, And Black Grad Cake
R/WH/BL school colorswe stuck w/the same color theme including inside cake! Graduate sang "Letting Go" w/choir class during ceremony, so it was her idea to incorporate the sheet music into the design. 3-layer 1/3 sheet. Didn't want to "draw" black lines between the piano keys, so the B/C on all cake sides were first airbrushed black, so that the black would show behind the keys. BL keys=Kit Kat bars handpainted w/black chocolate. WH keys=individually handcut & placed MMF. RKT owl w/MMF cap/gown/scroll
Crows & Scarecrows
My 1st fondant cake! I've been a buttercream gal for 37 years, so I thought I'd try something different and do something creative and fun while "playing" with dough. Yes, it was fun, but not exactly easy attempting outside of my comfort zone! The 14" green tier was the most difficulthad to try covering it more than once. I knew I wasn't going to give up until it looked like what I had hoped! Couldn't decide on royal icing or fondant decorations, so I did bothone way for each side.
