Boys And Their Toys
This cake was for a young man who is in love with his car, especially his high dollar rims. 14" WASC with buttercream icing and fondant details.
Red velvet cake with strawberries and cream filling - inspired by the cherry blossom festival in Washington DC.
Hot Pink Cami-Inspired
Oval display cakes covered in fondant with RI piping in gray with silver dust paint. Saw a gorgeous hot pink camisole with silver crystal beading in the Body Central catalog last year but didn't buy it then. Used the catalog picture to create punched stencils to press the design into the soft fondant and then piped the designs. Finished the cake today and just won the cami on ebay tonight. Plan to display the cake with the cami.
Hexagon with lavender MMF and aurelia borealis crystal cake jewelry fountain with silver/holographic ribbon.
My Twilight Birthday Cake
Recently read the Twilight series and decided to do my own birthday cake as a Twilight cake. White chocolate sour cream cake with lemon buttercream and fresh blackberry filling. Lemon buttercream icing with fondant checkerboard and fondant/gumpaste tulip, apple and red ribbon. Chess pieces are chocolates. First time I've made my own birthday cake since I started my business.
Moorish/spanish Wedding Theme
Fondant with Arabesque fondant cutouts in black covered with black sugar glitter, black dragees, pearl dragees, red gumpaste roses with white pearl leaves.
Build A Bear For Jana
Chocolate pound cake with buttercream icing base covered with demerara sugar for fur. Buttercream clothes to match little girl's outfit for her birthday party.
Buttercream icing with fondant bubbles airbrushed with pearl. Large bubble is RKT with a coat of modeling chocolate and two coats of fondant. Wand is gumpaste.
This is my first attempt at a buttercream transfer. Mother-in-law's family (Tucker) is having a reunion on Sunday and I made this to take. Cake is two-layer half sheet of French vanilla with white chocolate macadamia nut buttercream filling. Icing is all buttercream smoothed so transfer blends into top. Did a two-tone rope bottom border in blue and yelliow with #50 tips to add "regal" touch.
Lumberjack Log And Ax
French Vanilla cake with raspberry filling, buttercream icing airbrushed to look like bark. Cut ends are fondant with airbrush tree rings. Ax is copper pipe armature with RKT, modeling chocolate and fondant handle. Blade was the killer. Fondant cracked this morning. Modeling chocolate a disaster. Finally went with aluminum foil for weight and durability. Cake is traveling three hours to party for NC State forestry major who competes in lumberjack competitions.
French vanilla with white chocolate macadamia nut filling and buttercream icing. Made a gumpaste "10" in navy blue for a topper. Client requested "shmily" be worked into the scrollwork because it's a code between her and her husband for "see how much I love you". Thought that was really romantic...
Hostess asked to have cake look like the invitation shown at the bottom. Inside had a poem about cars, puppies and snails and she asked to have those as well so I made small fondant figures to go on top as well.
Co-worker said this was the Walmart price symbol which was fitting... Had to explain to her that it was a lot more than that in the 70s...
Little Einstein's Rocket Cake
The mom on this one wanted to use a candle for the antennae so I put a candle holder where the antennae goes...
