My Friend Spike
Is this not the world's chubbiest iguana? He's carved from two 9x13s, tail made from scraps. Legs and tongue are wire covered in fondant. The spiked collar was a last minute (sleep deprived) inspiration :)
I used the Wilton castle kit and LOTS of luster dust for this castle. The reason the cake is so small is that it was for only four people, and I had to buy a gluten free mix -- expensive!
These are cake bites decorated with royal icing to look like basketballs. I'm thinking the possibilities are endless!
These are cake bites molded into squares and decorated to resemble dice for a Bunco party. Wanted to post b/c these are a good seller!
Like Tow-Mater, But Without The Tow...
Here's Mater from the movie Cars. Made with a loaf pan and a 4-inch square trimmed to form the cab. Chocolate buttercream with fondant accents painted with luster dust. Made for 3-year-old twin boys.
This was for an Eagle Scout honor ceremony. Big props to KittisKakes, I would have been lost without her example! Wondermold atop 10-in round.
Movin' To The Country...
...gonna eat a lot of peaches...cake bites, that is! Stems are pretzel sticks, leaves are fondant, gentle dusting of pink luster dust for peachy glow. I wanted them to look like they were in a peach crate so I used this egg carton. I envision apples, oranges, pears...
Wonder mold Cinderella atop 9 in. round. Covered in fondant and painted with sparkle dust.
Carved from chocolate sheet cakes using cardboard template. Fondant accents. Replica of a Fender Strat, fortunately hubby had one in the basement for me to copy! Groom's cake.
Jetski was carved from a loaf cake then covered with fondant and painted with gel colors. Rider was modeled from fondant and painted.
Beavers, Acorn & Pine Tree Cookies
These were for a reunion at Beaver Creek state park. Sugar cookies with royal icing. Iced smoiooth and then painted on more icing for texture.
Burger & Beer Can
Fun cake to make! Buns are 9 in. contour, burger is 9 in' round. Fondant lettuce, cheese and tomatoes. Beer can was made by baking in two Bush's Beans cans, covered in fondant and sprayed with silver luster dust. Cake was beer flavored and yummy! Tasted like banana bread.
Pink & Brown Wedding
These are 6, 9, 10 & 12 in. squares covered with Satin Ice chocolate fondant. Gumpaste leaves and flowers, royal icing piping.
Do The Hustle!
Disco ball cake for a girl's skate party birthday. Sports ball covered in fondant tiles, air brushed with silver luster. I didn't let my tiles dry long enough, they were so heavy it soon became a disco orb. Thanks to msauer for her guidance, next time I'll listen better! :)
Wearin' O' The Green
Got an order for a St. Patrick's Day cake for an Irish priest who plays the harp, no leprecauns, pots o' gold or green beer allowed. Tough one, but I loved the end result. Harp is color flow painted in gold luster, shamrocks are royal icing, musical notes are FBCT.
Jojo On A Petal
JoJo's circus themed birthday. Wonder mold on 12-inch petal. Figurines courtesy e-bay. Thanks to the many JoJo cakes in the gallery for inspiration. This one was delivered to a good, good friend at, um, midnight. :)
This was a replica of a groom's guitar called a Paul Reed Smith. Plays like a Gibson, looks like a Strat, according to the music store guy. Yes, but can you eat it? :) Fondant accents painted with luster.
Everything's Waiting For You...downtown
This was for a chamber of commerce-like organization. The cookies are replicas of various downtown businesses. I wanted them to curve around the cake so I cooled them on the sides of cake dummies. The funniest part was the fit one business owner threw when she discovered her shop didn't have a cookie. No conspiracy, I promise you! The biggest compliment was the lady who is STILL saving her cookie. Logo is FBCT.
May The Force Be With You...
My first cookie cake. Darth Vader is s FBCT from an online coloring book page. To get a smooth surface, I iced the bottom of the cookie.
This was for a groom who loves the University of Alabama. Iced in chocolate buttercream. 3D Elephant is white chocolate.
Marie From The Aristocats
This cake was delivered to Texas today. My friend and daughter recently moved there and her parents were driving there today for the 4-year-old's birthday. I met them on the interstate to hand off the cake. Her daughter loves Marie from The Aristocats movie. My first FBCT and I can't wait to try it again! Marie wears a big pink bow, hence the bow. Hope it made it OK!
Goodyear Blimp Above Stadium
Stadium is Nordicware pan, blimp is two footballs iced together. Unfortunately the blimp took a header into my dashboard (insert tears here!), but I was able to smooth it pretty well. Thank goodness it didn't hurt the lettering on the front!
The birthday girl wanted a rock star party so this is what I came up with. The disco ball is Styrofoam covered with hot-glued cut up CDs. Sugar cookies on wooden skewers wrapped with hot pink, lime green and purple pipe cleaners. Her name is in lights -- cookies iced black and then decorated with silver dragees.
