Princess Pink Castle Cake
I think every mom dreams of making a pretty castle cake for their little girl. So much fun to make! 12" stylized grass tier, 8" textured castle tier, with fondant-covered RKT for the top half of the castle. Turrets are hollow fondant tubes. Everything else is a mixture of fondant and gumpaste. Flavour was vanilla pound cake with strawberry cheesecake filling. Thanks for looking!
I've always wanted to make a cake based on this character, so was very happy to be asked to make one! What an adorable theme! 8"/6" rounds with fondant and gumpaste decorations. Strawberry's house is made of fondant covered styrofoam. Flavours were red velvet with cream cheese (for the adults), and chocolate with cookies 'n cream for the kids.
Monkeys Jumping On The Bed
A cake for an adorable 1-year old whose favourite toy is a large, stuffed monkey. What better way to showcase her playful and energetic personality, than with a "5 little monkeys jumping on the bed theme". Rich dark chocolate mud cake with vanilla SMBC. Gumpaste figures and fondant decorations. Thanks for looking!
Modern Yellow Circles
Subtle yellow circles accented with black and white creates a striking combination! Cake is french vanilla with dark chocolate buttercream and ganache (8", 6", 4").
Turquoise Mosaic Cake
A gumpaste magnolia is set against a bejeweled mosaic backdrop in turquoise, blue and green. Flavour is spiced carrot cake with cream cheese buttercream (8"/6"/4").
A Dora cake for my daughter! Cake is 8" square, 7" tapered, 4" square with gumpaste Dora, Boots and Swiper. We couldn't decide on a flavor so ended up making a Neopolitan cake. "Cake" tier design is from the fabulous Andrea Sullivan of Andrea's SweetCakes.
Traditional Elegance - Flowers And Butterflies
I was so happy when I was asked to make a cake with flowers, butterflies and the color pink. What a classic combination, and a great opportunity to practice making sugar flowers. Cake is french vanilla with strawberry buttercream. Flowers and butterflies are made out of gumpaste.
Sesame Street Topsy Turvy
I finally had the opportunity to make my first topsy turvy cake. Such fun! 12", 9", 6" tiers with RKT teapot on top. Gumpaste Elmo and Abby Cadabby.
A fashion-inspired cake for a fashionable girl. 8", 6" double barrel and 5" dark chocolate mud cake with chocolate buttercream and ganache. Gumpaste fantasy flowers, ruffles and necklaces.
Damask And Hibiscus Cake
The only request for this cake was to include gumpaste hibiscus flowers (but not a tropical theme). I decided to make it more formal and elegant by setting it against damask and pearls. 8", 6", 4" Belgian dark chocolate mud cakes with cream cheese buttercream.
A pretty cake for Renee, decorated in her favorite colors. 9" and 6" chocolate cakes with vanilla Swiss Meringue buttercream. Gumpaste ballerina is a replica of the birthday girl.
A Spiderman cake for a special little boy: classic chocolate cake filled with cookies 'n cream buttercream and milk chocolate ganache. 8" and 6" rounds, 3.5" square. 3D Spiderman topper is made out of gumpaste. Note: this was my first time using Satin Ice fondant (blue tier), and I have to say that I really dislike it. Had lots of problems with tearing and wrinkles (even with added shortening and glycerine). Kudos to those CC users who can use this product successfully! I think I'll stick to making my own.
I saw this design and knew I wanted to try it (sorry, I don't know who to give credit for the original design). This cake is sheer decadence: Belgian chocolate mudcake with dulce de leche filling, cream cheese buttercream and Frangelico-infused dark chocolate ganache. Pretty pink ruffles were made using french vanilla swiss meringue buttercream. Yum!
Cute As A Ladybug
An individual-sized cake for a little girl's pet frog. A strange request, but I love how the ladybug turned out!
Thomas The Train Cake
A small and tall cake (6" + 4"; each tier was 5" tall). Moist red velvet cake with cream cheese BC. I had so much fun making this cake! Gumpaste topper is a replica of the birthday boy doing his 3 favorite things: riding a train, waving 'hi' and talking on the phone.
