Lsu Mike The Tiger
Inspired by lalaine's white tiger cake. This is a 10" x 3" WASC cake piped with buttercream. Whiskers are angel hair pasta. Ears are cookies (pecan sandies) covered in BC. Mostly used tip 21...but used smaller star tips to get in the narrow areas. The tip of the nose and eyeballs was done using a 4 tip.
St. Joseph Alter
WASC cake with lemon filling celebrating St. Jospeh Alter. I used 2 large wilton cross cakes. Shaved the top off of one so I could double stack since the pan has a beveled top. I don't know how I iced this so crooked. It was harder than I expected. Will do things differently next time.
Pool & Frog
A strawberry cake with butter cream icing cake for a friend who owns a pool servicing company. Frog, leaves, pool skimmer and banner are fondant. Thanks to KathyCC on her instructions.
Birthday cake for my nephew Collin. Choclate cake baked in 10"x3" round with BC icing. Eyes, mouth and "C" are fondant, eyebrows are tootsie roll. Cake is surrounded by reall M&M candies.
Spaghetti & Meatballs
Meatballs are Ferrero Rocher chocolates covered in strawberry sauce. White flakes is grated white chocolate. Used the grass tip for the spaghetti.
Double Stuffed Oreo Cake
My Brother-in-Law loves oreos. So I made an Oreo Devil's Food Cake with Oreo Cheesecake Center and Chocolate BC icing. Didn't mean for it to be so big..but don't think he'll mind.
The gold cake board created a weird reflection on the bottom of the cake. The color of the cake underneath the swags should be the same tan color as above it...??? Oh well.
This unknown cookie recipe came with my container of 101 cutters, but it is the best cookie! Flooded the cookie with a combination of 2 recipes...Tara1970 & Toba Garrett's. I LOVE how smooth & glossy it is. The mask is a test I bought at Hobby Lobby. I filled it with white chocolate and cut out the eyes and tried painting on chocolate for the first time. My poor nephew gets a girly mask for his birthday, but Mardi Gras is about over and I didn't have anything planned with the chocolate mask.
Happy Valentine's Day!
Tried out cornelli lace on choclates and cake for the first time and my new (small) ruffle tip #86. WASC cake with Strawberry Cream Cheese Icing and Strawberry Cheesecake Mousse Filling with bits of fresh strawberries. Molded chocolate hearts.
My first try at a piping gel transfer. Was very fun to do. I'm still trying to learn how to do a rose bud and struggling with the ruffle border.
Ice Cream Cake From The Cake Doctor
I realize there isn't a lot going on with this cake, as far as decorating, but I wanted to try the infamous ice cream cake.
Did You Say You Wanted A Chocolate Cake?
3-Layer cake consisting of 2 layers of WASC dark chocolate fudge cake with a center layer of chocolate cheesecake, covered in chocolate amaretto ganache, surrounded by chocolate fudge pirouettes, topped with chocolate covered strawberries
Starburst & Tootsie Roll Man
This is the figure I am going to use on a cake. I got the idea from a cake here...it's the golfer who is watching his golf ball stop just shy of the hole. I made this in a couple minutes. I had a mold for the face & hands. I was just playing around, but I think I will keep it. The brown is tootsie roll...the colors are starburst.
Hummingbird Cake With Cream Cheese Icing
No really! This is a Hummingbird Cake Recipe with cream cheese icing that is Southern Living's most requested recipe. I have never heard of it before, but when I googled "hummingbird" to see the colors, I saw that there was actually a humminbird cake recipe. So, I baked it. I'll find out what it tastes like tomorrow. This is also my first attempt at brush embroidery. I used too small of a tip (2) because I couldn't pull enough icing to get the correct effect I wanted. Thanks for looking.
