Graham cracker crust with chocolate cupcake topped with marshmallow meringue icing and "toasted" with a hand-torch- one piece of Hershey's chocolate bar for garnish.
Black And White Cake
Scrolling done with royal icing, accented with silver dragees (for decoration purposes only). This was the cake after a photo board fell on it during windy conditions- so there is a slight rippling in the top layer of fondant.
Killer Whale Cake
My friend's son LOVES Shamu- so I made him a white cake with strawberry filling, vanilla buttercream, covered in fondant- shaped like a killer whale.
80Th Birthday Rose Cake
2 cakes decorated with roses for an 80th birthday. One cake is WASC with strawberry filling, and the other cake was lemon with a lemon curd filling.

Rose Cake With Vertical Layers
This is a Red Velvet and White Almond Sour Cream Vertical Layered cake with a Vanilla Buttercream icing. I followed the steps from the "I am Baker" blog. It was surprisingly easy to decorate and a lot of fun to make the vertical layers!
This is a WVSC Cake (Was asked to leave out the almond, so substitutede vanilla). It is filled with strawberry filling, and covered with vanilla buttercream frosting. I covered Spongebob in Yellow, white and Brown fondant. Legs and arms are made of dowels covered in fondant (arms aren't in this picture- they had to be taken out prior to transport due to box size). Made for an 11-year-old's bday.

Chocolate WASC cake with chocolate buttercream and homemade marshmallow fondant. This top tackle shelves are made with fondant, and then I added gummy worms, Swedish fish, bobbers and hooks. This was the second "fishing" cake I did for my cousin's son.
3 Tier Fondant Covered Wedding Cake With Forest Green Accents
This is my first fondant covered multi-tier wedding cake. Top and Bottom tiers were Funfetti WASC, and middle tier was a plain WASC. All 3 tiers were filled with Bavarian Cream, and the icing was vanilla buttercream. All tiers were covered in white fondant, and the accents were made with forest green royal icing and forest green ribbon
This groom cake was a chocolate WASC cake with chocolate mousse filling and chocolate buttercream icing, covered with fondant.
Fondant covered German chocolate WASC cake with pecan coconut filling and a chocolate buttercream. Some accents were made using 60% cocoa chips that were melted then piped on. The wire is a type used for jewelry beading, and it was secured into the cake using toothpicks. Sorry about the bad picture- my camera broke so I had to use my cell phone.
Baby Grand Piano Cake
My cousin is an AMAZING pianist, so for his high school graduation I made a piano. It is a Chocolate WASC with Bavarian Cream filling and Crusting Vanilla Buttercream Icing. The cake is covered with Vanilla Fondant colored black. He said it was the best cake I've made yet, and he said it was even his favorite tasting cake I've made. I was very happy that he was so happy!
White Wedding Cake With Lavender Accents
This is my first wedding cake. It is a WASC with Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese filling, and crusting BC icing, smoothed using the viva paper towel method. Shell borders with lavender dot accents, and lavender mesh ribbon border along the bottom border of each of the 4 tiers. I need a lot of practice, but I'm getting there- the bride was happy which completely thrilled me :)
This is the first time i have had to carve a cake- and it was so much fun! Marble WASC / Chocolate WASC recipe, with Cream Cheese White Chocolate Mousse (colored army-green) filling, and Crusting vanilla-almond Buttercream. I used the Viva paper towel method to smooth the BC. The tracks and gears on the side are black fondant, and the cannon is a pretzel rod coated in the BC and tipped with the black fondant.
Fishing Birthday Cake
I made this chocolate "WASC" cake with dark chocolate Ganache frosting. The trees and aluminum boat are made of rice krispies, and the lake is rolled fondant that was airbrushed.
This was my first stacked cake, made for my parents' 30th anniversary last year :) It was WASC with vanilla buttercream frosting and fresh raspberry cream filling. Fondant accents were made with a rope mold and other small western themed molds.
