Grandma's 80Th Birthday Cake

Monkey Cake For Triplets
This is a first birthday cake for my friend's triplets. Bottom was chocolate mint/mint filling/ganache, top was pistachio with white chocolate filling and ganache, all covered in MMF.
Topsy-Turvy Surfer Cake
This is the surfer-themed cake I did for my daughter's third birthday. It was a combined party with her friend, and when he found out it was a surfer cake, he got upset because he wanted a pirate cake! So we turned his surfer dude into a pirate. This was my first topsy-turvy (thanks to the janellescakes for the Youtube video) and my first try at fondant figures. I also tried out some new recipes. For those of you that care: The bottom was S'mores (alternating layers of chocolate and graham cracker cakes with marshmallow filling). The top was stawberry with strawberry filling. All covered in MMF.
Baby Shower Cake
MMF with gumpaste shoes, brushed embroidery, fondant bow. Used template from grannys3angels for shoes (thanks!).
2Nd Birthday Cake
This is the cake I did for my daughter's second birthday. BC with fondant flowers.
A teacher friend got married and asked me to do a little wedding-type cake for her to take to her class (instead of inviting a bunch of little kids to the wedding!). Her real wedding cake (done by her SIL, a professional) was chocolate fondant with tangerine colored fondant roses, so we thought we'd do something similar but more fun for the kids. It was my first attempt at making fondant and it was a disaster!! So the cake is iced in chocolate bc with (purchased) fondant accents.
The Most Delicious Cake I've Ever Made
Birthday cake for my husband's coworker. Buttercream frosting, fondant decorations. 9" triple chocolate fudge cake with three fillings: one each of milk, dark, and white chocolate pots de creme. Mmmm....
Ganache With Ribbon
Bridal shower cake for my sister-in-law. 10", 6" red velvet cake with pastry cream filling, chocolate ganache. Real red roses brushed with gold luster dust to match red/gold ribbon.
Armadillo Groom's Cake -- My First Carved Cake!
Classic red velvet cake with cream cheese icing, gray fondant. I know there's a lot of room for improvement, but since it was my first carved cake, I'm pretty happy with it.
Luau Birthday Cake
This was for my daughter's third birthday. Cake was chocolate, dress was white with mint chocolate chip ice cream filling. Fondant flowers for lei. I used a combination of white, brown, and turbinado sugars, plus cinnamon, for the sand. Everyone loved the cinnamon and sugars with the chocolate cake.
White chocolate strawberry swirl cake with strawberry filling. Chocolate ganache "2." I cheated and bought the car.
