Basket Of Yarn
My friend is a big knitter and they were having a grand opening so I made this basket of yarn. It was so much fun, everything is edible except the knitting hook things , but they are painted with edible paint lol. I had so much fun trying to make different yars and started pieces. What do you think?

Thank goodness for Cake Central and the idea for these chow mein food cakes. They were for my sons birthday at school. The take out food containers worked out perfect ! There is no cutting and everything was in its own container! Thank you CC for the idea. PS a couple of these are fun... 30 something not so much !
American Girl Cafe
Our little friend is a huge American Girl fan. I made the little cafe for her. The teapot and cups are tiny and even have the famous pink lemonade in it. I really loved making this cake. The colors are like the cafe in Los Angeles and the black and white checked flooring.I made cupcakes to match. Hope you enjoy looking!
Magical Cookies Princess, Frog, Castle, Pig, Sword
My first fondant cookies ! These cookies are from a class I took with Susan Carberry at the Cake Cottage ! I had so much fun making them and they were so yummy!
Our good friend passed away without warning. He was a great teacher,friend and musican. This cake is of his favorite Bass. I also put copies of alot of the show flyer he did over the years. We brought it to the reception after his service. Most people didnt know it was cake until I started cutting it up.
My daughter wanted Rapunzel for her birthday cake. The cake had to have a big tower! Here it is all edible. This is the first time I made a person/character , she was fun !
Monster Energy Drink Can
My 9 year old son loves Monster, everything Monster, hats, shirts, sweatshirtst, stickers all of it. He wanted a Monster Cake for his birthday. He had no idea I was going to try to make it a can ! I also used Monster Drink to make the buttercream and it was actually very good !
Double Fun Summer Pool Party
Double fun end of summer pool party. I had so much fun doing this cake for my friends kids. It for a boy and a girl so I tried to combine both so that neither felt left out. I also was playing around with the towels so I worked on a tye dye, the back turned out better than the front that I painted., so the front is actually the back! I was super happy that I had texture sheets to do the stone and wood and the wicker pool texture. It was fun... and there was happy kids... the best of both worlds!
Parrot Tropical Island Cake
While visiting my friends 9 year old son in the hospital who is battling cancer for the second time, he was in alot of pain. I told him to close his eyes and go somewhere that he wanted to go, he said Hawaii, i told him to picture himself on the island with the warm sand between his toes and the beautiful blue water I told him to find a parrot, and give the parrot all of his pain and told him to fly away with it........... so then his mom pulls out his favorite stuffed animal... a parrot ! He was coming home the next day, for a few days until he went back in for my chemo... I told him I would make him a welcome home from his first round of chemo cake...............and here it is... may not be perfect but it was perfect for Koen !
Only a good friend could convince me to try this for her daughter! I do love the way her turned out. He took me a bit to get him figured out... but I think in the end...I got him! CC was so helpful when I was making him... hope this helps someone else... Happy Caking.. ps love Cake Central!
Burnt Turkey Cake
ummm yeah.. pictures speak louder than words.I wanted to make a turkey cake for my kids Thanksgiving party and well.... I got alittle to carried away with the airbrush... and well the "skin" was not smooth and it was really really really dry. Oh and I wanted it to look wet kinda so I used karo syrup and it was the light one not the dark one.. and well, thank goodness this is a hobby cuz I would fire me... and it was for 4 year olds... not that tough of a crowd to impress :) enjoy my disaster... more to come

Baptism Cross Cake
I was so nervous making this cake. I had no idea how to make a flower. I think it turned out ok. I covered the cross in white fondant and then painted luster dust on it to give it a sparkly sheen. I am now addicted to flowers.. they were so much fun to make.
Black And Pink Birthday Cake
I just love black and pink. It is so done already but I just love it. This was a suprise birthday cake. I found a necklace with a K on it and put it on top for some bling. I need help getting my fondant to not have the corn starch on it.. esp black. ughh any tips
this was my first tiered fondant cake. I did funky 80's colors because its so big here in so cal. I also colored the cake to match the outside.. that was fun to cut into . I only have lil letters, and some are hard to get out of the cutter. I hope to find a bit bigger alphabet set.

The cake is huge with lemon filling and a basket weave. I am totally self taught.. and by looking at all of these cool cakes on CC. I had a blast!
My Very First 3D Cake
This is my very first 3 D cake. The ball is from a ball pan, covered in white fondant and hand painted with black color gel. I had the best time making this cake. The grass is all buttercream. I dyed the green different shades and colors to give it depth.
