Tiki Totem Cake
This is the last minute cake I did for a luau party at our winter park. I should have given myself some extra time, as this one was a bit rushed. Thanks to everyone who sent me tropical flower info...Cake was six, 6" red velvet cakes, butttercream icing/filling and fondant accents/face/flowers. Bottom round is foam dummy.
Lot's of firsts, and lots of mistakes! First fondant figures, first stacked cake, first fondant painting on cake, first try at ribbon roses...I still have problems with leveling, need to get a small level! Bottom is choc butter cake / twinkee filing, middle is WASC / choc ganache top is WASC /stawberry, bc and fondant decor. TFL and any suggestions greatly appreciate by this newbie. Cake inspired by many here on CC. Thanks!
First Fondant Cake
Well, there isn't a gallery for fugly cakes so I put this in first time cakes as this was my first fondant cake, my first painted fondant and my first time making MFF. I intended this to be all white, but it looked sad, so I decided to paint the cake. The colors are uneven and blotchy...Um, not my best effort but everyone loved it anyways. It's cake, right? Please disregard cling wrap stuffed into the bow...I forgot it was there! Double Choc with bc and twinkee filling.
This is my first time with candy clay roses. I used Wilton Candy Melts. I was also practicing some new stuff we learned in Wilton Class 3...RI cornelli lace is on top, some bc swags, etc. Serious_cakes easy yellow cake with bc and strawberry filling. Edible glitter sprinkeld on top.
We had a water break during the day Christmas Eve, so I had to wait until late in the evening to decorate this cake. Well, after a few glasses of Christmas cheer, this is the cake will we have for the open house today! Merry Christmas and thanks to all my wonderfully inspriational friends at CC!
My First Cake Order!
Barefoot Contessa Choc cake, twinkie filling and buttercream icing. Made up flowers...just call them Texas blooms!
First Decorated Cupcakes
This was my first attempt at cupcakes. Barefoot Contessa Choc Cake recipe, choc and orange bc icing. I made a cupcake bouquet with several of these and the rest went to our RV park's potluck dinner for Thanksgiving. Bit hit! TFL.
This is my second attempt at decorated cut outs. Signature Sweet Shoppe recipe, Toba Garrat's Glace' and new larger cookie cutters! I used squeeze bottles this time and it was much easier to do. There are some flaws but overall a much better effort than the last disaster! TFL.
Wilton Class 2 Final
This is my cake for our final class. I didn't want to do spring floral colors as it is Thanksgiving week. Not real pleased with my colors, I need a color wheel! Didn't like working with RI, prefer BC for flowers, but did learn a lot. Barefoot Contessa's chocolate cake recipe with choc BC, RI flowers. TFL, any suggestions appreciated...practice is in my future! PS...this cake was inspired by another on CC, thanks! Teddy with punkin is color flow...
