Red Haired Spider
Coworker ordered this cake for his wifes birthday. She is scared of spiders, but loves cake. Body is from the ball pan, head is a large cupcake, and legs are chocolate covered pretzels. Hair was made by putting melting red candy wafers in a squeeze bottle and then squeezing out thin strips on wax paper, breaking it up into smaller lengths, and then inserting into cake. Used black luster dust on the legs and then canary yellow dust on the joints. Small eyes are Red Hots and large eyes are sliced Dots candy.
Made this for my friends daughter. She loves playing volleyball and is on the team at her school. Volleyball is devils food and the base is strawberry. All decorations are fondant.
I wanted to see how large of a spider I could make and this is what I came up with. The legs are made from pretzel rods, the head is from the Wilton ball pan, and the body is carved from round cakes. The hair on the back is made up of over 200 chocolate covered cherries. It measured 4 feet X 4.5 feet. I made the legs detachable and had to melt them into place when I presented it. Sorry about the poor picture quality, but I was in a hurry to get it ready to take to work. Also, my tables are uneven so that's why the different things are under the front legs.
This cake was inspired by the old Dairy Queen commercials where you are flying through a chocolate canyon. This cake used 14 boxes of mix, 5 cans of icing, a double batch of ganache, 1 jar of caramel sauce, and lots of chocolate covered strawberries and cherries. It weighed just over 30 pounds and measured 15in X 25in and was 5 layers high. The upper lake was connected to the lower lake by the canyon. When I presented it, I filled the lower lake with caramel dipping sauce and the upper with chocolate dipping sauce and then let the upper flow in the lower. I had a separate container filled with fruit for dipping (not pictured). This cake mixes included dark chocolate brownies, chocolate fudge brownies, triple chocolate cake, milk chocolate cake, and devils food cake.
Two Flies Feasting
A pile of poop with two flies feasting. I made this by mixing cake and icing just as you would for cake balls. But instead of making balls and dipping in chocolate, I just rolled it out and put it in a pile. Then I spayed it with a fine water mist to give it that moist look. I was going to use the yellow part of candy corn for the corn effect but couldn't find any this time of year, so I ended up using real corn. A few people refused to eat any of it because of how real it looked. The flies are fondant.
This was a joke cake that I made for my cooworkers. The "cake" is actually 76 Snickers bars melted together and then covered in icing. Two knives were broke trying to cut it. Amazingly, it was all eaten though.
This is my 2nd spider cake. Friend saw my first one and asked if I would make another for his daughters birthday. With the extra batter, I made her some fly cupcakes to go with the spider, cause spiders have to eat too. If you want any info on how this was made, just check out the comments on my first spider. Thanks for looking.

World Trade Center Towers
I made this cake in memory of all the lives lost on 09-11-2001. Cake did not turn out as good as I had hoped, which is why I am just now posting it to this site (I actually served in on the Friday just before 9-11). It was my first attempt at using fondant (the black sides of the towers). Base is a chocolate cake and the towers are brownies on skewers. Poked a hole in the top of one tower for the antenna but forgot to put it in before taking pics.
The Long Cake
I made this cake for my family reunion. The family name is Long, so I made the Long cake. Cake was right at 4.5 feet long. Everyone loved it.
Cake is two thick 9" layers. Both layers are strawberry cake. Between the layers, I dug out about half and inch of bottom cake and filled with strawberry preserves. Covered in strawberry icing and decorated with fresh strawberries. Drizzled juice from preserves onto strawberries on cake. Top is a mini cupcake decorated to look like a strawberry.
