Teacher's Appreciation Chalk Board
12x15 sheet. All fondant. BC piped writing. Penci was made using hexagon shape from a clay extruder which worked out perfectly.
Giant pencil replica for teachers appreciation. Two 1/4 sheet cakes cut long-ways then stacked (two different flavor cakes). I butted them up against each other, carved and covered in fondant. Wood tip is RKT and lead tip is black fondant. Overal size 4"x4"x"30".
Snoopy Dog House
Made from 12x18 stacked cake (8 total layers). Covered in BC. Use a 104 rose top to make horizontal slats. Next time, I'll use a 124. I made the figure first before I figured out the cake so he's not quite to scale. Oh well, it was for a friend and she love it. 6" smash was a frozen buttercream transfer.
50Th Wedding Anniversary
My 1st 4-teir cake. The client was looking to replicate the original cake from 50 years ago but we decided to do a modern fondant version of the instead still incorporating the swan pillars and original topper. Overall I'm very pleased with it. It was RV with cream cheese icing which was a bit soft and caused some buldging. Handmade gumpaste roses were duested in gold.
Zebra With Bow
Quick and simple zebra cake. My daughter helped make the stripes as it was a cake for her friend.
8" buttercream cake lined with Pirouette cookies. All gumpaste/fondant decorations. I used 50/50 for the palm leaves but next time I'll color straight gumpaste. They were a bit too soft and delicate and a few broke off but were easy to fix.
I made this cake in less than 1 hour for a dummy cake for a baseball opening day event. It's certainly not perfect but it made a nice addition to the table.
Sock Monkey 1St Birthday
Made to match the invitations dots & colors. 10" buttercream cake, 6" all buttercream smash cake. Monkey & bow are 50/50 fondant/gp mix. Fondant dots on 10".
Sf Giants Hat
Made to raffle off at little league opening day. 6" half ball & 6" round. Fondant covered, GP bill.
Made for a 15th birthday. She requested orange and silver and a simple design. Handmade flower. Silver painted trim.
I followed the tutorial from Yummy Arts for this. My plan of action was very similar to the tutorial but I did get a few good tips from it. Spice cake with vanilla buttercream. All fondant.
Choclate Heart Truffle Box
Inspired by many similar cakes here on CC. 6" heart single layer. 12 hand-made chocolate truffles. Bakerella has a great tutorial on her site.
Buzz & Woody
Made for my friend's twins. All gumpaste/fondant accents, 6/10" Based on robbie33's very well done cake. My friend loved the way the original looked so we went with it pretty much as is.
Made for my niece's 3rd bday. Vanilla 4" cake slices into bread. Buttercream "mayo". Lettuce, cheese & bologna is all GP/fondant. BC 8" round. GP scooby snacks and footprints. I used a great step-by-step tutorial from "Annie's Art Book" on-line for the GP scooby.
Made for middle school's diversity week teacher's luncheon. 10"/8" plus 6" ball carved down a bit. All fondant/gumpaste decorations. Looked up various international flags. Used wilton's faces cake idea for faces on the bottom.
Dessert Bar Featuring Cake With Leopard Print Bow
Centerpiece of a dessert bar for an 80th birthday. 6"/8" cakes. Gumpaste peonies, leopard print gp bow. Dessert bar included mini creme brulee, choco dipped strawberries, milk and dark truffles, mini cheesecakes with raspberry drizzle and fresh berries. The presentation was courtesy of the catering company of the event so that it matched the rest of their display but I provided all the desserts.
Nike Air Jodan Retro
My friend's son waited in line for these but didn't get them. She asked me to make a cake of it so that he could finally have his Air Jordan's. All fondant.
Nye Cake With Mask
This was a NY cake for my friends. I had done a mask in gumpaste but it wasn't dry enough and cracked in half before I could finish the detail....so I ended up just using a mask I had for the top.
Mini Zebra Cake
Made for niece's baby shower. She requested a combination of minnie (traditional red with white polka dots) but to add zebra stripes with hot pink to match the plates/napkins. 10" Red Velvet, 8" chocolate, 6" minnie hat. 24 vanilla cupcakes to match. TFL
