Beach Theme Wedding Cake
First wedding cake done outside of a Wilton class. Flowers are gumpaste, palm tree, coconuts and leaves are 50/50, monkey is fondant, sand is brown sugar and seashells are white chocolate.
My Daughter's 17Th Birthday Cake
I was curious about icing sheets so I tried Duff's new line since I could buy them at my local store. My daughter prefers canned icing over homemade buttercream so I used that but it was hard. I smoothed it out as much as possible. Inside is a vanilla cake with confetti sprinkles. Bow is 50/50 gumpaste and fondant. Second photo is to show the top sheet (barely). It was hot pink with zebra stripes.
Scooby Doo Sweet 16 Birthday
This was the biggest cake I have made. It was tough and everything that could go wrong, did. I think I might need to change my cake recipe and start using a firmer cake that holds up better when stacking and carving. My cake was even and looked great until I started applying the fondant.
Kitty On Yarn
My daughter wanted a cake with a kitten. It's a vanilla cake covered in buttercream and fondant. The cat is fondant. This was a lot of fun and I was proud how it turned out. The brighter pink pic is closer to the actual color. The fondant on the base is a light blue.
These were for a 2 year old twins birthday party. This was my first time making cakes for someone other than my family.
Loved the sugar diamonds. So beautiful. Biggest error on this is not using a firmer buttercream filling. It make the cake hard to work with because it kept bulging out. But it has such a good flavor. Anyone know of a really good buttercream icing that is also stable enough for stacking or carving. It is a 5 inch and 8 inch square cake.
Wilton Course 3 Final Cake
My first 2 tiered cake. My fondant I layered my cakes with was too thin so I had some bulging around the sides but did not try to fix it since it was a practice cake.
Fondant "miss You" Flower Cake
I made this for a friend on her last day at work. It was only the 2nd time I had used fondant but want to practice as much as possible. I feel I did great on the corners. Was a little short on time and would have done some things differently but overall I like it. She loved it. Did not want to cut it!
Wilton Course 2 Final Cake
Basketweave was loose in the front where I first started but tightened up and looked good by the time I finished. Unfortunately the area was the the side. Love the flowers! Made the cake so pretty!
Last Class In Course One
I feel I did well on my flowers and borders but had some problems with the other stuff. My wrist and hand was tired and shakey when I made the stem and bow. I removed bow and did not have enough time to retry.
After Class The 2Nd Class
We had less than 20 minutes to do "something" we were taught. It was fun and I added the top squiggle myself because it was quick and easy.
