Princess Mikenna's Castle
This was my Daughter's 4th Birthday Cake. She saw the picture of this in the Wilton Year Book and HAD to have it! Let me tell you it was a 'Royal' pain in the behind to make! I had 4 tower casualties on the way to the party! I'm glad I brought my fixer kit! But overall I was happy with the turn out! The Bottom tier is Death By Chocolate cake with Twinkie Filling the top tier is Strawberry WASC with strawberry n' cream filling. TFL
Fish Outa Water...fathers Day Cake
This is the Father`s Day cake I made for my Church`s Annual Fathher`s Day Picnic. (there are lots of fishermen!) The bottom tier is WASC and the top tier is white gluten-free both with banana creme filling. seaweed and rock are fondant. The fish I wasn`t very happy with the outcome....it`s RKT covered in a mix of gumpaste and fondant painted with gel colours. He had a real hook in his mouth. TFL!!
Gift For You
this was an attempt at a pillow cake which ocviously didn`t work so I changed it to a present! I donated it to a silent auction. It`s a WASC cake covered in ganache and fondant. The flowers and bow were gum paste and my first attempt at a floral spray I was pretty impressed with myself! It`s calla lillies, fantasy tulips and baby`s breath. TFL!
I made this yesterday for my husband and I 's Anniversary. I ma not to pleased with the 'neatness' of the piping but it was my first working with melted chocolate so I thought it would be good to try it out on the man who would love it no matter what it looked like! It's scratch no bake cheesecake, (way to hot for the oven right now!) With mint-chocolate and Skor. Even though I'm not happy at the result.....it tasted darn good!!! TFL!
Max And Ruby Sandbox
This is a WASC pineapple cake with twinkie filling. All BC except Max and Ruby and the toys which were a fondant/gum paste mix. Sand is graham crumbs. Made for a little boy's 2nd birthday. A fun cake to make but M&R were very time consuming!!
This is Pablo from the Backyardigans. He is carved from 4- 8" round cakes and 3- 6" round cakes. Cake was Banana cake with Banana flavoured Twinkie filling. He was all banana BC except his hat, bow tie, beak, and eyes which were a mix of fondant/gum paste. He arms and feet were banana flavoured RT covered in fondant the n BC. It was for a little girls first birthday and her mom wanted "as much banana flavour as possible"
This was a cake I did for someone who had completed the 28 day program for Alcohol Rehab. He has a favorite tea set that is black and red with the black bamboo so the colour scheme was taken from that. Everything was free hand, which I obviously need to practice! The design on the side of the cake is the design found on the tea cups. It's the Chinese character for Faith. The script reads 'Faith...In yourself, In others, In God. The Bamboo is all gum paste. The cake is WASC usuing coconut milk instead of water, with the red buttercream, and the piping is done with RI. Since I know the person who is now on his way to bright future of sobriety, this cake had some special meaning for me...it's not perfect I still need some practice, but I tried so hard to make it great!
Thank You Cake
I did this cake to be given as a thank you gift. I was my first attempt at gumpaste frangipani, and fondant bows....actually it was also my first time covering a cake in Fondant! It's a banana cake with coconut pecan filling.
I made this for my brother and his wife's first Anniversary today. (everyone in my family is kinda caked-out!). It's cheesecake cupcakes, buttercream flowers, rice paper butterflies, fondant leaves. It's also Gluten free.
Cherry Mothers Day
Top tier is gluten-free yellow cake bottom teir is WASC. Buttercream with MMF accents. Bird is MMF hand painted. Blossoms are MMF cutouts with luster dust. Blossoms are a lot of work but well worth the effort!!
This was a practice cake, I decided to give to my step dad. I'm not too happy with definatly could have spent more time to make it better...but it was the shape of the actual cake I was practicing with then just decided to turn it into a Keg for my step dad. It's a white cake with MMF, and chocolate cream cheese filling. Thanks for looking anyhow!
Belgian Chocolate Ganache
This was my first attempt at ganache! Lets say I know the rave about ganache now it was delish! I used Belgian chocolate!
This was my first cake. My very own wedding cake! A white cake with rolled fondant. I sugar coated fresh Orchids, Roses, and Ivy. I knew exactly what I wanted for my cake, not over done with fresh flowers, and clean and pretty....so I wasn't going to pay someone to screw it up! After this cake (I knew nothing about cake decorating and kinda winged it) I was so impressed at how it turned out I knew I had do this more!
This cake was also made for my church potluck. This one is Gluten free and made with Cream Cheese Fondant (thanks CC for the recipe!)
I made this for my church's potluck lunch. It was my first attempt at Buttercream roses! It's not a perfect cake but I'm quite pleased since I have only done 4 cakes in total!
