Indian Inspired Wedding Cake
The design was inspired by the couple's wedding invitation design - it's an Indian alpana.
I made this cake for my friend's wedding. It was an outdoor wedding at a vineyard. When she told me that I automatically thought of a more rustic looking cake. I's a lemon cake with lemon curd and white chocolate SMBC. The flowers were fresh and provided by her friend who was the florist. This is not a heat friendly cake, so it had to be kept inside until the cake cutting, but it worked out. It was accompanied by cupcakes for the rest of the guests :) Check the blog for more pics...TFL
Baby Bird Shower
This was a mini cake I made to go along with the shower theme for my friend who is expecting. It's a 6in cake with lemon and blueberry then frosted in vanilla SMBC I dyed blue (to represent the sky and the baby boy). The birds I did with fondant to match the invite and the nest i bought at craft store ;-) you can see the rest of the pics at my blog...TFL
This cake was for my niece's 3rd birthday. She loves Tinkerbell! Vanilla cake with vanilla crusting buttercream frosting. All the decor I made with fondant except Tinkerbell (no way I was gonna attempt that! lol). Made chocolate cupcakes to accompany the cake as well. Thanks to all the users on CC for inspiration.

I made this cake for a friend's anniversary. They love the beach and this is what I created based on what she told me :) Coconut flavored cake filled with pineapple filling and coconut swiss meringue.
Here is a cake I did for a last minute monster truck theme bday. I originally wanted to make a monster truck tire, but just did not have time. You could definitely use this design for a race car theme too. caralee83.blogspot.com
Chocolate Ganache Covered Birthday Cake
I did a tall 6 inch round cake with layers of vanilla and chocolate cake. Between them I put strawberry swiss meringue buttercream and coated the entire cake with amaretto chocolate ganache. I made some simple fondant flowers and leaves to decorate it. Any tips on how to pipe better writing?!
First time trying to make some sushi cupcake toppers with fondant... I think they came out pretty well! :)

Made this for my two younger cousins birthdays. Lots of fun to make - especially when you have free range on whatever you want to do!! TFL http://caralee83.blogspot.com
Made this for my dad's retirement party. I wish I was good with sculpting I would have tried to make my dad actually fishing, but oh well. Thanks CC for all the inspiration :)

Made some of these for teachers I know :) Saw it in the "What's new cupcake?" book and knew I wanted to try it!
Meant To Bee
Used my little bumble bees again except this time I made engagement party cupcakes for my friend.
Flower And Beach Wedding
This was my first wedding cake!! Bride wanted a flowery elegant cake for her wedding then something fun on the top. Everything is homemade - the cakes, frosting, and fondant. The only thing not homemade were the chairs on the top. Having been my first wedding cake I learned so much for next time. I see a lot of imperfections and things I would change for next time, but the bride was happy so I was happy :) TFL
Barney Theme Bday
I kept this cake very simple. I stuck with the theme colors (green, purple and a bit of yellow) then topped it with a big pink baby bop bow. All fondant home made; bow is gumpaste. I wanted to do so much more with this cake, but time was not on my side. TFL
I was inspired by the many cakes I've seen on here lately w/ the black royal icing lace. I did a little research and I believe the original design was a cakegirl's design. But anyways... here is my own funky interpretation. Wanted to practice my piping skills. Cake is a tall cake with 3, 6in rounds covered in homemade marshmallow fondant. I happen to have an extra gum paste flower around so I added it too :) TFL
