Client ordered this cake for her husband & his colleagues. She wanted her husband's med. practice's logo on the cake...which is a heart within an apple. That's the business card with the logo in front of the cake.
Bears & Polka Dots Baby Shower Cupcake Tower
I'm disappointed in my lighting and poor camera skills:P The colors of the cake are not true to color...the pic of the cupcakes alone are the closest. The buttercream was a light teal closer on the aqua side...the fondant dots, blocks, & cap were a deep teal...and the brown deeper brown (I guess the bear came out the right shade of brown). Brown is chocolate fondant. It was a really pretty color combination. I made the stand for this one.
Tea With Alice In Wonderland
Mad Hatter's hat in Cheshire cat's colors is chocolate cake with Nutella buttercream filling (the birthday girl's two favorite things...chocolate & nutella:)). The hat has purple & pink fondant buttons towards the back of the hat. Teapot is RKT except handle, spout, & lid are gumpaste/fondant. All other decor is gumpaste. Board covered & decorated with fondant. The piece of cake that Alice is holding says "Eat Me".

Elmo Birthday Cake
Made this cake for my nephew's 2nd birthday:) Half chocolate and half yellow cake with strawberry buttercream filling with fresh strawberries diced and mixed in with the strawberry buttercream. Cake iced with buttercream and decorated with fondant. 3D decor is gumpaste. Elmo was my first 3D gumpaste character. Cake design inspired by "Bella Cupcakes". (Bad lighting in the second picture but thought the angle of the picture captured the design of the cake nicely. The first image is the proper shade of the cake.)

Almond Cake With Raspberry Filling
I have horrible lighting in my kitchen...the wide ribbon is supposed to be a fuschia pink..not red. Cake is almond with raspberry filling iced with buttercream. Working on getting my buttercream as smooth as fondant (using Sharon Zambito's method..great video)..this was the first attempt...those darn edges are so hard to get. Since this was a practice cake for smoothing my buttercream, decor was kept simple.
Chocolate Raspberry Cake
Dark chocolate cake with raspberry filling (raspberry pastry filling & fresh raspberries) and covered with chocolate ganache.
