My work does themed days every month and they decided to have a marvel theme day. They asked for an avengers cake this is what I came up with. Given the fact that we were in the middle of a heatwave and I dont have a/c I'm thrilled it was still standing by delivery.
Power Ranger Dino Charge
My son asked for a 2 tier dino charge cake. I was initially going to do a torso cake but decided to do a rice treat top instead. He told me he wanted dinosaur scales on the bottom and power ranger on top. I used a dino charge mask as my template for the head.

High School Grad Cake
This was a pretty stressful cake. I don't do wedding cakes because I don't want to deal with stressful cakes... but the client for this cake was VERY particular and asked for every single detail. The fear of not meeting up to her expectations made me dwell over everything. In the end the Mom and Dad were pleased, I have yet to hear if the graduate was happy. Hope she was! Fudge marble cake with vanilla buttercream and covered in fondant. The grad cake is styrofoam board and RKT.
Chocolate pound cake with peanut butter chips and peanut butter buttercream covered in fondant. Books, diploma and grad figurine made of fondant. Grad hat made of cake and styrofoam square covered in fondant for top. Colors are STU colors. Hope the grad is pleased.

Chicken Noodle Club
I made this cake for a local charity event. It's vanilla pound cake with vanilla buttercream. It's for an organization that provides free chicken noodle soup lunches to kids. Soup bowl is rice krispies covered in fondant mixed with gum-tex, I then made some fondant veggies/noodles and chicken and pour rock candy over it (dyed yellow with candy coloring). All other accents are fondant. There are 162 red squares on that table cloth... it took FOREVER to glue down. TFL
Cake is vanilla pounds with vanilla buttercream and fondant accents. Loops and #1 are fondant with gum-tex.
Bday Hat Cake
My client sent me a photo of a hat cake she wanted me to recreate. I've always wanted to do a hat cake like this. :) Sadly, my pregnant brain is working against me. The first time I made the cake, I forgot to put the eggs in. IMAGINE. Thankfully, second time went well. Cake is red velvet, with vanilla buttercream covered in fondant. Flower was hand made with gumpaste. Feathers aren't edible. Birthday wish is cardstock cut out with my cricut. (I tried gumpaste but was unsuccessful, will try again)
I got to try a bunch of new stuff for this cake. That's always fun! First, a new recipe... Cinnamon swirl cake. I had a small sliver.... mmm mmm mmm. Then I tried "Bettercream". I wasn't sure how it would turn out but I must say I do enjoy it and can see myself using it a fair amount. I then tried to make the ice. I got lucky on my third try. I wasn't heating it enough (I was trying to avoid it reaching the amber stage) unfortunately I learnt the hard way that it needs to reach that stage if I want it to harden. The wood is made of fondant that I distressed and painted. The beer cans are real and almost torture to use in photo. I'm 7 months pregnant and have been craving a beer since I was 3 months along! Seriously! I was good though... they went back on the shelf. TFL!
Dairy free cake for a 1 year old. Middle tier is fake. 6", 8", 10". Design was based on a photo the mom sent me to 'replicate', with some changes. TFL

Bday - Fender
This was SO cool to do and so surprisingly easy! It came together quite nicely I think. Chocolate fudge cake with chocolate buttercream filling, covered in vanilla buttercreama nd fondant. The neck is a piece of foam board covered in fondant. Wire "strings" and fondant accessories, edible silver beads. This was a TON of fun...
I made this for my boss' son's birthday. He wanted a "CAT" dump truck, which looks similar to a tonka truck, carrying a load of peanut m&m's. he was very pleased and asked to play with it.
