Bubble Guppies Buttercream Icing With Fondant Appliques
Bubble Guppies: Buttercream icing with fondant appliques.
The Birthday Person Told Me Her Favourite Colours And Flowers And Told Me She Was Obsessed With Purses So This Is What I Came Up With
The birthday person told me her favourite colours and flowers and told me she was obsessed with purses so this is what I came up with.
This was for my dad's 65th birthday. The symbol on the top if for Browning Rifles. The cake is done in butter cream with fondant leaves and the fondant symbol and numbers on top. I noticed and fixed the little problem with the icing on top after I took the photo.
I made this after my nephew saw a photo of an amazing snake cake floating around the internet. It is made with 10", 8" & 6" rounds stacked. The top layer is holowed out to allow the fondant head to sit down in a bit. Each "tier" is covered with fondant separately and the pattern is painted with food coloring.
Ombre Rose Cake
My first attempt at a rose cake. It turned out okay but my buttercream was a little too stiff so it looks a bit choppy. The ombre effect (graduation of shades of the same colour) really looks nice on this type of cake though.
Large petal cake covered with fondant. Silouettes were traced on fondant and hand cut. Edible gem for the "diamond".
I usually use fondant but this was for family and they prefer buttercream. Juest used a standard 9x13 pan. Handle and some decorative elements are fondant. Chocolate coins for the jackpot loot.
My nephew is an aspiring hunter so he loved this cake. My camo fondant didn't quite go as planned but turned out okay. The antlers are gumpaste and the shotgun shells are fondant and gumpaste mix. I used the blaze orange lettering to reinforce the hunting theme.
This was actually an idea the customer came to me with and it turned out great. It was for her 17 year old brother who loves music. When I gave it to her she said it was sooo him as he is always in a toque with his headphones on. The headphones are rice krispie treats covered in fondant and the rest is fondant as well.
Buttercream base with handcut fondant character. I used templates for the head and freehanded the body.
Simple Communion Cake
This cake is modeled from the young lady's dress. The rhinestone buckle and bow as well as the circle pattern embossed in the fondant replicate different aspects of the dress. The cross is cut from fondant and dusted with pink petal dust and pearl shimmer dust.
Made this for an avid Toronto Blue Jays fan's 30th birthday. His girlfriend wanted to really make his day and she said it definitely did!
Maple Leafs Jersey
Made this one for a boy's 10th birthday. He was a HUGE Toronto Maple Leafs fan. This was my first jersey cake and it was a lot of fun.
Carrots And Bunny Butts
Great fun cupcakes for Easter/Spring. Bunny bottom sticking out of his hole surrounded by grass and dirt.
Made this for my niece's birthday. Although I'm not a huge fan of the Wilton castle kit I used it for this one and it turned out okay. My niece loved it so that's what matters!
Spaghetti And Meatballs
Just made these as a treat for the teachers at my kids' school, I think the idea came from a Wilton's book. They were super easy and the kids even helped make them, we had a blast.
This one was for a 6 year old girl's luau themed party. She loved it, so I guess it was a success even though I know there are flaws.
This one was a quick job whipped together for my neice's birthday. The Justin Beiber album part is a photo and I just made up the signature. Not my best work because she doesn't like fondant so I had to make it mostly from buttercream with fondant accents. Not bad though.
Made this for a fan of the T.V show "Glee". I've never seen it but did a little research and this was my result. The hand is RKT and it turned out a little thick in the fingers but it was my first real attempt at modeling with RKT.
Another baby belly cake. I love doing these and they can loo so different just by changing the style of top. This one for a not too girly mom to be. Marshmallow fondant over buttercream.
