8" vanilla Circus Tent Topper covered in fondant stripes... 40 circus themed cupcakes. Clowns heads are from Wilton & some sugar toppers from Wilton as well. Popcorn cupcakes with mini marshmallows... Designed to go along with the carnival party supplies for oriental trading.
South Beach Style Bridal Shower
I made this for my friend's bridal shower. The top tier was an 8" orange flavored cake and the bottom was a 10" vanilla cake. Both covered/filled with vanilla buttercream. The side stripes are fondant and the fantasy flowers are gumpaste.
Spirited First Communion
I was asked to make a cross-shaped cake for a very special young lady in my life. I decided to make my own pattern since the store bought shaped pan would only serve 12 and this needed to serve more than 50! I made two double layer 8" square cakes and cut them in the shape of a cross.
Pink Piggy Cake
Here's a piggie face cake I made for my good friend who loves pigs. She requested it special for her birthday. I used the Wilton animal crackers pan and filled it with fun-fetti cake.
I wanted to share this lil' cutie bear-shaped cake I made in my first cake decorating class with a Wilton shaped pan. He was my first attempt at piping stars all over a cake, a little tedious to say the least but I love the effect.
Chocolate devil's food cake covered with chocolate buttercream, filled with milk chocolate and decorated with white chocolate chip borders! I used the Cricut Cake to cut out the flower and letter decorations out of white frosting sheets. I had a hard time getting them to stick to the dry buttercream because it's better suited for attaching to fondant-covered cakes. Next time I'll try using the Cricut Cake with rolled fondant or gumpaste.
Pretty Princess Cake
Before I started taking cake decorating classes I thought it'd be a good idea to make a tiered cake for a princess birthday party... I'm glad I did because I learned a ton! I had grand fairytale ideas of sugar gems and fancy piping crowned with an intricate royal icing tiara... I created a beautiful Sleeping-Beauty-inspired tiara template which didn't end up working out due to runny royal icing. I'm proud of my attempt despite the tacky plastic princess costume piece.
Course 2 Final Cake
Vanilla buttercream basketweave oval cake w/ my dad's favorite flowers, pansies, made from royal icing and color flow birds.
Vanilla Buttercream with fondant bow, flowers, and buttons. Design inspired by custom made invite by bride's cousin.
Easter Bunny Cake
Every year I make a bunny cake with my mom. This was last years version before my cake decorating skills kicked in. I still love him and think he's super cute - and of course he was delicious! Can't wait to make another one this weekend :)
Wedded Bliss Cupcake Favors
Individual cupcake favors in 3x3" clear acetate boxes. Vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream. Fondant flowers with sugar pearls. Made as a gift for my friend's wedding.
Superhero Struggle - Batman / Superman
What happens when twin birthday boys have a superhero struggle? You make them cake, of course! Gotham city is a 6" 2 layer cake (1/2 vanilla, 1/2 chocolate) covered in marshmallow fondant and buttercream clouds. For classroom fun I made 12 super jumbo cupcakes covered in vanilla buttercream swirls with chocolate Batman & Superman logos.

Chocolate covered brownie bite "blossoms" pop out from the center showcasing sparkle piping gel and sugar heart-shaped candies. The cupcakes are also chocolate fudge with milk chocolate icing with fondant accents & sugar pearl centers.
