Backyardigans 2 Tier Cake
All gumpaste figurines. My slide broke, but I was able to save enough to make it work.
Creepy Halloween Cupcakes
These were so fun! I usually do "cutesy" cupcakes and cakes for Halloween, but the request was for weird and scary. The skulls I made with gumpaste after making my own mold using a skull necklace I found at the Dollar Tree. I found the eyeballs at Michael's.
3 Tier Hexagon Baby Shower Cake
The theme was "Around the Clock" for the baby shower. All iconic items that are used/needed with a new baby. This was a spinoff of a cake I saw on Pink Cake Box's site. I really hate icing hexagon cakes. I could have messed with it FOREVER trying to get it flawless!!
New England Patriots Cake
There is an inspiration cake, but I am not sure of the original caker as the customer sent me the pic.
Mini Purses And Shoes
This was the LAST time, someone didn't pay me their balance!!!!!! Long, horrible story. It was heart-breaking to do all this work for nothing essentially.
Batman Superhero Cake And Cupcakes
This was a great trade I did with a fellow photographer. She came a month earlier and photographed my daughter's 3rd Bday party and I did her son's birthday cake. It was great!
2 Tier Shabby Chic Cake
For another wonderful, repeat customers, who basically designs all her cakes and I simply execute!
Nostalgic Gumball Machine Cake
The "glass bowl" was a plastic fish bowl I found at a Pet Store for $5. Gumballs were purchased at Party City. I didn't cover with fondant because the customer was trying to cut the price and they don't like fondant. I had to literally hold the cake by the bowl while my husband drove or it would have for sure fallen!
Wedding Cupcake Tower - Purple Gumpaste Flowers
This was 144 cupcakes. 6" cake on top iced with purple cream cheese icing and gumpaste floral bouquet on top.
Tiffany Box Cake
Styrofoam lid covered in fondant. Tiffany logo hand written with black edible food pen. The ring was a paperweight purchased at Hobby Lobby and I made a "band" for it. I have since found smaller ones that are a complete ring and have 5, but I am sure no one will ever order another cake and want one. LOL!
Car Themed 2 Tier Cake
6" on 8". My first time attempting a spiral-like cake. I just couldn't understand any of the directions I found on making a full, spiral cake. I liked how it turned out.
So, this little girl loves unicorns AND jack-in-the-box's. So the Mom was able to find a toy that was a unicorn-in-a-box! I adapted the feel of the toy and the feel of the party which was "mystical, glittery" per the Mom. This is 3 layers, all torted, 6" square cake, made with a dense cake. The unicorn was made with a RKT center. This was very fun!
This was a last minute change in the design. That's why there's no headboard. Originally I was going to do a toy chest. Then I chickened out and did the bed instead. My first time covering a cake in fondant. I loved the wood grain look I got. That was a scary attempt, but was very easy. I had a Woody doll I made a mold from and then used fondant with tylose to mols Woody's head with. i also didn't have time to make Buzz. The customer put a toy Buzz on there at delivery. I felt bad. Overall, it turned out well I think. Notice the saran wrap under Woody's leg because his leg broke as I was putting him on the bed and I had to glue it back and the saran wrap was my support.
Princess Pumpkin Carriage Cake
I used the Betty Crocker bake and fill pan which is 2 half balls and put them together. Carved out the indentions for the pumpkin, torted and iced and covered in fondant. The wheels and all the other pieces were made a week in advance. The little pic of the birthday girl was an edible image. There were 3 dozen cupcakes with tiaras on top to match. A very fun cake!
Strawberry Shortcake Doll Cake
I used the Bake and Fill pan and 2 8" round pans and carved a little. I wish I would have dressed up the torso of the doll more, but was short on time.
Popcorn Cupcakes And Circus Tent Cake
I used a really large round tip and piped on the kernels. Then I let them crust, lightly tapped down any pointy peaks. Then I had to take a tool and make the criss cross pattern. This was the most time consuming. I had to wipe off the tool after each kernel, as there was BC on it and then dip it in a cornstarch/powdered sugar mixture. Cause once you push past the crusted outer layer, it of course was soft underneath. There were roughly 30+ kernels on each cupcake times 24 cupcakes! It took about 4 hours total for the cupcakes alone. Then I airbrushed some yellow for the "butter." I will be charging alot more for these if ever asked to make them again!!!
