Bookworms In The Garden
I made these for my daughter's two teachers for Teacher Appreciation Day. The book and bookworms were straight from a Debbie Brown book, but we decided to add the garden extras. All fondant and gumpaste
Thought I would share my process for making some beautiful butterflies. I cut out gumpaste butterflies with just regular cookie cutters. Line the inside of a cardboard box with wax paper, and put butterflies along the corner. this will let them dry with their wings part way up. Let them dry completely. Then, use black icing color to outline, and paint veining. Once the weining dries you can add color. For a beautiful iridescent butterfly (you can't really see the irridescence in the pic, sorry!) brush with luster dusts. For a bolder butterfly, like the Monarch, fill in with more icing color "paint". Enjoy!

This was my entry for the National Capital Area Cake show. the inspiration came from my 11 month old daughter's outfit :) White chocolate zebras, everything else is fondant.
Made this for my daughter's 6th birthday. She loves dolphins and hearts, so I made dolphins, bubble hearts, fish and coral. My daughter made a good portion of the coral, and she and her little sister did most of the 'painting' on it the coral. The bottom tier is strawberry and vanilla layers with strawberry cream filling, the middle tier is chocolate with raspberry filling and the top is strawberry with strawberry cream filling.
Topsy Turvy Golf
I am very happy with the way this golf cake turned out! All fondant, except my husband made the golf cart out of a snickers bar, covered in white chocolate, and the golf ball is white chocolate..
I left my 5-yr-old and my 2-yr-old with gumpaste, snowflake cutters, sanding sugar, dragees, and pearl dust. They made all of the snowflakes,. Then I iced some cupcakes, let them help sprinkle more sanding sugar and such, and added their snowflakes on top. I think they did a great job!
