This was based off some birthday party supplies. All of the charagters we hand painted with airbrush color. TFL!
Daddy's All In
This went with the zebra monkey cake for a couple's baby shower. This poker cake was inspired by one from pink cake box. TFL!
Girly 1St Bday
Sweet and simple 1st birthday cake to make the party decor colors. =0) The little one is the basic design for all of my smash cakes.
At the last minute I changed the design of this cake. It was originally supposed to have stripes and polka dots in the traditional "topsy turvy" fashon, but I just was not feeling it. Luckily the Bride was really easy going and all she wanted was the topsy turvy shape. The scroll stuff is painted on with black airbrush color. TFL!
Purple Zebra Cupcakes
These are the 2nd set of zebra cupcakes I have done, but with purple Bc. I used Buttercream Dream, smoothed with viva, and satin ice stripes and flowers. TFL!
Frog Baby Shower
This was the first time I got to tilt a cake (in real cake not dummies). I used a little wedge of styrofoam, covered it in platic wrap, then "glued" it to the bottom cake with white chocolate. Set the top cake on with more chocolate and a dowel through the center of the whole cake. It was very sturdy. I think the trick is making sure that the cakes are VERY cold/chilled when you try to stack them. The frog is RKT with royal icing "fur" painted on with a paint brush. The blue flowers are Duff roses that I used a ball tool to soften the edges.
Polka Dot Cupcakes
These are iced in Buttercream Dream with just the end cut off the bag. Then they are smoothed with a Viva Paper towel. The black polka dots are also buttercream piped with a 3 tip and then smoothed with the Viva as well. Flowers are Satin Ice. TFL!
Moving To Wi
This was for a guy who just got his PhD and was moving to Wi with his family to teach. this was the first time I had to make MMF in awhile (I am spoiled with Satin Ice), but it worked well. TFL!
Peek A Tigger!
This cake was based off of the Peek a Pooh cake I originally did a few years ago. Can you believe this cake was for a 26 year old guy! Apparently he really loves Tigger! I tried to make it a little less like a baby shower cake. TFL!
These were sort of last minute cookies that I was wanting to try some quilting effects on. I love CookieCrazie's blog and her cookies, so although these aren't any of her exact designs, they are inspired by her. The round rose cookies are a design that I like to paint on my cakes and had wondered if it would work on a cookie. NFSC, with Glace amd RI.
Simple fondant cupcakes. I used 2 different round cutters and the bow was half a square, piched in the middle with a smaller peice across the center. I used white sprinkles for the dots. TFL!
These were fun to make! I smoothed the Buttercream Dream with a viva paper towel and the stripes are black satin ice. TFL!
Here is another sleeping baby cake. Not the best picture =0( The head is RKT and the body and bottom tier are cake. The elephant is from a set of Hallmark invitations. I broke my airbrush so I had to use wilton pink pray to make the gingham. Super easy and done with just fondat, spray, and tape. =0) TFL!
He's Coming In For A Landing!
I based this design off of the Pottery Barn Kids Airplane nursery bedding that I friend got. I was inspired by all the quilts that PB makes so that is why the sides of the cake are patchwork. The top is just gumpaste. TFL!
This was for a girl graduating from cosmetology school. I was feeling a little abstract and wanted a mature cake. I decided on painting the black as a way to incorporate some of the stylist elements without making them 3d figures. TFL!
Peacock Wedding Cake
This was for my cousin's wedding. Hand painted peacock feathers and a gumpaste hydrangea topper
Cake Wrecks Book Tour Cake
This is the cake I made for Jen and John of CakeWrecks when they came to Tempe AZ for a book signing! It was HUGE! Feed over 200 people! TFL!
April/may Cc Mag Cake
I hope it is okay to post this now that the June issue is coming out. This was such a pleasure to make! I used a Martha Stewart doily lace edge cutter to do the ruffles (just like you would paper, but use very thin fondant instead). What an honor to be a part of such an wonderful magazine.
