Lego Batman Birthday Cake
I made this cake for my nephew's 9th birthday. Theme was LEGO Batman. The gray manhole covers housed shot glasses that were inserted into the bottom tier.

Jack's Big Music Show Topsy Turvy Cake
I made this cake for my daughter's second birthday. It was my first topsy turvy cake and was a Jack's Big Music Show theme. I placed the cake on a faux fondant cake board, which was my first time making as well. I rushed the cake board though, so I know it could have been better.
