Birthday cake for a 5 year old who LOVES his basketball! Chocolate cake w/ Chocolate BC, fondant details, ball is RKT covered with fondant.
XBOX 360, Playstation 2 & Wii - all made out of chocolate cake with chocolate BC - fondant accents.
Birthday cake for my mom who loves to quilt. My first attempt at molding RKT (pincushion) and first try with a red velvel/cream cheese cake.
Random vanilla cake pulled out of the freezer (cheating, I know). Another attempt at sugar flowers, this time trying to hand paint them (sooooo not an artist), AND my first time covering a cake in fondant! TFL!
Vanilla cake, less-sweet BC, and gumpaste hibiscus. My first time attempting gumpaste flowers - I learned alot & was excited at how they turned out!
3 tiers - vanilla, choc, vanilla; covered in BC with Fondant/Gumpaste bow. Did it on very short notice for friends, and was completely underpaid for my time. Lesson learned! At least the cake was delicious! :)
White cake, less-sweet bc icing & cookie dough filling (turning out to be a family favorite). Bow/ribbon was made out of fondant...probably should have had a little gumpaste added in....it took forever to dry.
Nintendo Bday Cake
Yellow cake with Chocolate Chip cookie dough filling, BC & fondant accents. Controllers are rice Krispy treats. Tried to cover the cake in fondant & I just couldn't figure out how to get the corners right, so I decided to try BC, which turned out ok - it was a hot & humid day & the frosting was not behaving. ARGH! So, I'm not thrilled with the outcome, but my brother (it's his bday cake) absolutely LOVED it!
Fun cake to make! BC with fondant accents and mini marshmallows for popcorn. Vanilla cake with chocolate chip cookie dough filling - it got rave reviews!
Spice Cake with BC & Fondant accents. First time playing with luster dust too! Still need to figure out how to get REALLY smooth BC - any suggestions?? TFL!
Birthday cupcakes for a 5 year old - she loved them!. Vanilla cake with buttercream frosting & fondant accents. My first time making fondant ribbon roses & I was pleased with how they turned out. TFL!
Doctored box cake mix with canned (gross) frosting. Basketballs & letters are fondant with chocolate writing - they're supposed to have a basketball texture, but it's a little hard to tell in the picture. Lessoned learned - always have time to make homemade frosting!!
Ice cream cake for hubby's 26th birthday. White cake, buttercream, with fondant flag and ball.
My first attempt at a whimsy cake...and my first time with fondant. It's 2 6" cakes, carved to taper, BC with Fondant accents. It went to work with DH and got rave reviews!
