Clown & Balloon Theme
Tried out the newer sprinkle craze. Also, still getting the hand of construction & some other basics.
Butterflies & Medallions
inspired by some intricate love bird art...I made an informal hippie style wedding cake made of cut outs galore..
The Dirty Heads, Nirvana, Beastie Boys, Bob Marley, Damian Marley, Clutch logo's or related images
Topsy...not So Turvy
My attempt, with out a picture to go by of a topsy turvy. Didn't turn out right, but it's kinda neat anyway. Good try at first attempt...
Veterans Day - Marine Cake
Veterans Day Marine Cake - I made a very scaled back version of a cake I saw online. It could have been on here CC. Either way, it was gorgeous & this is just a very simple re-interpretation to her cake.
I wanted to try piping & this is what happened. A sort of Indian vibe...although my mother commented it looked like playing cards to her. :(
Birthday Cookie Collection
My very first attempt at a nod to all those "platter" cut out ladies. I'm not sure all of them are just on CC. However, I love the colors and ways the designs intersect. These are VERY basic, but I gotta start somewhere!
Mini Cake Experiment Number 2
Again, this was an experiment with ganache and the marshmellow rolled buttercream recipe. I normally put this on my cookies but tried to cover this mini with it. It screamed the whole way! So, I whacked the "abort" button and just added on some neat things. I learned a bunch!
Tried some things with regard to decorating....ganache, chocolate MMF application. It went so-so. I still couldn't offer these to sell...I need to work on consistantly covering cakes properly. It still was fun after my struggle through some challenging things for me... :)
Birthday Cookie Set...
Just did a small gift for a young fella. Cookies coulda' used a wider ribbon but the designs were neat. I liked the colors....very masculine.
Black & Purple Gumpase Flowers
My first try at making a flower with gumpaste. For fun flowers they are okay....it's hard to see the details in the pic. But, they are 2 layers of the funky flower wilton cutter & a molded center...I also used a leaf cutter from wilton. Just practicing my cake skills! I still had an air bubble in my buttercream!!
I made some RI Scooby Cupcake toppers. I also made 2 other cupcakes in the classic Scooby style and colors. Execution is a bit sloppy....but overall I think they are festive!
I'm not a piper of epic proportions AT ALL. So, I studied a few pics & read a couple comments & decided to make my own template. I was so happy these looked like soccer balls & NOT steering wheels! I printed out a clip art soccer ball the size of my cutter - 3 inches. I make a traditional sugar cookie, so I do the "double cut" to ensure the exact size. I printed out the clip art on card stock, cut the black hex's out with an exacto knife. I then, as another CC'er had done, used a food marker & traced all the hex shapes onto the cookie. Then, used a second pic printed just for reference to guide me in freehanding the "lines" that connect all the shapes. After ALLLLL that, I piped the black, flooded. Let dry for 12-16 hours, then flooded white. I then sprayed with my pearl shimmer airbrush color....cuz nothing is complete with out a little sparkle! So - I hope those of you looking for a tip on no stress soccer balls try the template route. I'm so excited - no steering wheels!!!!! yeah!
Raccoon & Beagles
95th birthday cake for my fella's grandpa....he used to "coon hunt"...this was my first try at gumpaste figures & I'm still improving on the basics of cake decorating....thanks for looking!
