Prcc This Was My First Icing Smiles Cake I Was So Overjoyed For This Request I Had A Lot Of Fun And Lost A Lot Of Sleep But It Was Worth
PRCC: This was my first Icing Smiles cake. I was so overjoyed for this request. I had a lot of fun and lost a LOT of sleep but it was worth it to see the reaction of the young lady when she received her cake. This was a Vanilla Cake with Vanilla BC. She requested a Chinese theme, she wanted a golden Cherry tree, black and red colors and certain Chinese Characters representing strength, love, courage and hope. It included a Koi pond, pebbled pathway, marble benches and working path lights.
This Cake Is Up For Review For The Prcc This Was For My Moms 52Nd Luau Themed Birthday The Cake Is White Velvet With Mixed Berry Filling
This cake is up for review for the PRCC: This was for my mom's 52nd luau themed birthday. The cake is White Velvet with mixed berry filling and Vanilla Bean IMBC. The cake is covered with Fondarific fondant. The trees, coconuts, tiki man and pineapple are my first attempts working with modeling chocolate. This is my first attempt using ruffles on a cake as well. I used them to represent lei necklaces. The flowers are gelatin (mom loves the crystal look and requested them). I used Wilton's fondant for the covered board. I took leaf cutters, cut out leaves and halved them for the layered grass look I wanted. I used confectioner's glaze, half strength, to achieve the waxy look of the leaves of the trees and pineapple.
This cake is up for review by the PRCC. I wanted to give my son a meaningful "wow" cake for his 15th birthday. I chose the Viola since it's his instrument of choice in Advanced Orchestra. Everything is edible, even the strings. I enlarged a template to get the true sizing of a 16" viola. The neck was a PITA to make, the tuning pegs work and I had fun making it. There are several things I would do differently and some things I may need you all to point out. TIA. It's a Red Velvet Key Lime cake with IMBC.
Yertle the Turtle for Dr. Suess week. My son, 13 at the time, did a lot of work on this cake himself. It was for a contest at his school. It was a Red Velvet cake. The turtles were also little cakes. The kids at the school were fighting over who would get to have a turtle. Fondant and gumpaste accents.
Quinceanera Hexagon and round vanilla cake with strawberry filling. I didn't have the hexagon pans at the time. So I had to make a template and cut out the cakes from a baked 16" round. I think the shape came out really nice. This was a last minute cake and I didn't have a cake base large enough to really finish it the way I would have wanted to. I was in Germany at the time, so running out to pick one up, wasn't going to work. Ignore the cluttered background, didn't set up a good photo station either...ugh!
3D Dog With Bone
This was my first attempt at a real 3D cake. I made a practice dog and sent the customer a picture before confirming the complex cake with her. We had a simpler cake as plan B if I couldn't pull it off. This was the actual Birthday cake for the lucky 5 year old. The cake was modeled after her favorite dog she created on her Leapster Pet Pals' game. The dog is a dark chocolate cake with BC and covered in fondant. The bone is a strawberry cake with BC and covered in Fondant. I didn't cut the boards quite small enough for the fondant to have a clean line at the base of the cakes. So that's definitely a lesson learned. Not to mention remembering to stage a good photo area and not using your iphone for pictures...lol.
Tiered Flower Cascade
My second wedding cake, my first cascade. Brown and peach roses and chrysanthemums in varying degrees of color. The top starts the darkest color and then the cake "blooms" the lighter ones towards the bottom. There were also gumpaste butterfly accents as well, dusted brown and peach. The cake was a 14" round white velvet cake w/ bc, 8" square white velvet with raspberry filling w/ bx, 6" round chocolate cake w/ cbc and a 3.5" ( I trimmed it for a better look) square keepsake tier that was white velvet w/ bc. All were covered in Antique White Fondant and a pearl border. I purposely rounded the square corners for a softer look on the cake as seen and suggested in some other pictures and tutorials online about mixing tiers or making a "softer" cake.
