Halifax Mooseheads Hockey Team Cake
Most people would not know this team. This is our Major Junior Hockey team from Halifax. My son loves our Mooseheads so this was the theme of his 8th birthday cake. The whole cake is alternate layers of white and chocolate cake in each tier. Each tier is buttercream finish with MMF decorations.

Yoda's head is a two six inch dome cakes then carved and covered in fondant. Ears are gum paste. His hands, feet and cane are all fondant The two other cakes are 8 and 6 inch round with buttercream finish. I was very nervous making this cake but like to experiment with my own kids so if I screw up, I don't really care! This was for my son's 5 birthday. He's very little, so we like to refer to Yoda as he is the smallest yet most powerful Jedi in the Universe. TFL.
This cake was for a Halloween baby from her husband. I thought the saying was appropriate for the occasion. The finish is buttercream with fondant and gum paste details.
Acoustic Guitar for a 50th birthday. Buttercream finish with gum paste neck and details. I wanted to throw this out the window at the end of the night. I almost gave up cake decorating after this cake. The neck went past the board and I couldn't find anything big enough to transport it in. It sat on my lap in the car the 30 minute drive to her house!

Round Wedding Cake Topper For A Cupcake Tower
8 inch round chocolate cake with cream cheese icing. I was very happy with the bow. The wedding colours were regency and horizon. The bride made her own cupcakes and asked me to do the topper.
All made of cake and carved to the shape. I used a heart shaped pan for the turkey legs and wings. The heart was cut in half and then shaped for each leg. It worked perfectly. The gravy is carmel sauce from a recipe here on CC. I loved it and it was very easy to make. The finish is buttercream and the stuffing is left over cake from the carving. The leaves and cranberries are gumpaste and fondant. I loved making this cake. TFL.

Simple Easter Egg
I made this little dome cake for my next door neighbor. I usually bake them a pie for Easter dinner, but we were making Easter very simple this year so I wasn't making a pie. I had a birthday cake for this weekend so decided to do this for them instead. I don't get to do much old school piping anymore, so this was just a fun little thing for me to do.
Super Mario Bros. Cake
This cake is for my son's 7th birthday. It is an 8 inch cake on the bottom, 6 and 4 inch cake on the top.

The bomb is fondant with a candle through the middle.
