Winter Wedding Cake
We made this cake for a couple who were going to blend their family. We were given guidelines (must have winter feel, have brown/pink and must include both sets of children in theme) but were allowed to design and surprise the bride and groom. They did not see it until the reception. Butter cream with fondant snowflakes and chocolate clay pinecones.

I Really Don't Know
I asked my son what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday. This is what he came up with. A Dr. Pepper can with a 4 leaf clover. ????? It was fun though. It was the first time trying Jennifer Dontz's chocolate fondant recipe. FANTASTIC! It tastes sooo much better than other fondants I have tried.
6" cake with butter cream. Fondant accents. My favorite part was making the barbed wire.
This was a painful learning experience! Chocolate cake carved/covered w/fondant. RKT feet, beak and head. Hubby cut himself carving the cardboard to shape of the body needed 2 stitches. I was cleaning up after we were done and I cut myself on a fondant blade and had to have 5 stitches! My friend loved it! The displaying board is 28 X 22 so you can see how big it is. I've never carved anything but a pillow before but had a good time trying! Also a big THANK YOU to Mike Elder for answering my fondant questions!
