Middle School Book Cake
EOY cake for my oldest daughter's seventh grade class. Includes social studies, math, science, Spanish and ELA. The butterflies represent the religion teacher we lost at Easter. All fondant.
My first attempt at a banana split cake. My daughter's class "earned" a part of a banana split through the year for multiplication facts. Decided the EOY cake should be a giant split!
Salem's Polar Bear Cake
My youngest daughter, Salem, wanted a Polar Bear cake with penguins and pine trees for her 5th birthday. Vanilla and lemon cake with fondant. Thanks for looking.
Mexican 50Th Anniversary Cake
For a traditional Mexican wedding, the bridegrroom presents the bride with 13 coins and they are bound together with a double lasso. For this 50th anniversary cake, my friend wanted these traditions symbolized on his parent's cake. The fall leaves were requested because the couple loves the NC fall colors when they visit. Chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and fondant. Thanks for looking.
Jeni's Happy Cake
This cake is for my niece's 29th birthday. She calls it her "Happy Cake". She quite often helps me in the wee hours of the morning with cakes, so I thought I would make one for her. Jeni chose the design. It's leaning and the fondant did not cooperate, but I love it. White choc 6 inch rounds with fondant and sugar on top. Thanks for looking.
Heart Argyle Birthday Cake
This cake was made for a sweet 8 year old's birthday. It was based on the invitation. Chocolate cake with fondant icing. Thanks for looking.

Cackalacky Bottle Cake
This was a sweet potato cake made to celebrate the 10th anniversary of a friend's spice sauce (Cackalacky). The bottle was covered with fondant, then painted to look like sauce. The label was a Wiltons sugar sheet with fondant for the white and orange. Thanks for looking.

Baseball hat cake for my nephew's 6th birthday. He wanted a sports puppy cake. Cake is white choc with MFF. I didn't make the brim ahead of time so there is a card stock support under it. The baseball is cake with MFF. The puppy was made of MFF by my niece. This was fun, but a challenge. It's hard to get the proportions correct. (The brim is a little large.) Thanks for looking.
A fun cake to make. Inspired by Andrea's Sweet Cakes on Flickr. All fondant and sugar pearls. Thanks for looking.
Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes
My turn to try these cute Pumpkin Pie slice cupcakes. Thanks to thefrostedcakencookie! Fun, but time-consuming. Pumpkin pie flavored cupcakes and pumpkin pie spiced butter cream. Thanks for looking.

My daughter wanted a mermaid princess cake for her 4th birthday party. I've never done a "person" before. She liked it. All fondant over white choc cake. Inspired by so many beautiful CC mermaid cakes. Thanks for looking.
Firefighter helmet cake for a sweet 4 year old. I attempted to follow the excellent directions on the "DDpiesSlice" blog. I had to leave out many details and the cakes were 8" instead of 10". Everything is fondant except for the gum paste letters on the shield. This was fun, but challenging. Thanks for looking.
I just noticed that my original explanation regarding these cupcakes did not post. I saw a picture of these cute frogs on Flickr, then saw a similar post here on CC. I cannot remember either of the names. Thank you, whoever you are.
Last minute cake for a 45th Anniversary. Choc/raspberry cake with MMF. Thanks for looking.
Tree Cake And Cupcakes
I made the cake and cupcakes for the back-to school teacher luncheon. Thank you teachers! The trees were inspired by a beautiful "chikadodle" cake. I learned a lot from this cake. I now know why you let a covered cake rest (and harden) for a few hours before decorating. The blue was (almost) perfect. The trees were so heavy that they pulled the blue down and caused waves. Live and learn. Thanks for looking.
This was a chocolate cake with raspberry jam and choc icing. Fondant on the cake and the flower is half/half fondant and gum paste. My customer wanted a sunflower cake for her daughter's birthday. I loved the cake by "Kitagrl" and thought I would give it a try. I have limited experience, but thought I did pretty well. Thanks to my niece for helping. Thanks for looking.
