Frozen Birthday Cake
I made this cake for a dear friend's little girl, who is a Frozen fanatic. I made the snowflakes and icicles with Isomalt, and it was the first time I worked with Isomalt. The bottom tier is supposed to represent the scene where Anna and Kristoff meet Olaf, the middle tier is supposed to mimic the scene where Elsa sings Let It Go, and then there's Olaf. :)
I made a minion for my friend. It was fun to tell my husband to "watch out for the minion in the fridge!'.
Egyptian Birthday Cake
This is an 8 inch extended tier that stands 6 inches tall covered in MMF. The pyramid on top were made of Rice Krispie treats and the images were purposefully roughly hand-drawn with a food marker. Ankh and snake were made of fondant which I painted gold. The pyramid is a bit wonky, but I have mastered covering an extended tier in fondant! You can't tell with the ribbon on the bottom, but there were absolutely no wrinkles or pleats. Yay!
La La Loopsy Inspired Cake
This is probably my least favorite cake that I have done thus far. The design just didn't come together for me. The little birthday girl was thrilled though, so there's that.
Milk And Cookies
A sweet friend told me a story of how her boyfriend would make her chocolate chip cookies whenthey were first together and asked if I could create a set of cookies for her based around this memory. Thanks to Adozeneggs.com for the original design of the milk glass and cookie cookie. :)
Blush And Ruffles
This is a (mostly) Zoe Clark design. I'm working on technical skills this week, so I thought I'd try something by one of the greats. :)
I have been wanting to work with a muted color palette with a pop of color, so this was what I decided to do. It also gave me an opportunity to try something different with my marbled tree cookie idea I used in my Thanksgiving cookies!
Piping, Piping, And Some Piping.
This is a big ol' cookie and I wanted to try my hand at laying out some pretty piping designs. I love the white piping on the dark cookie!
Steampunk Style Cookies
This was a hastily put together set of steampunk style cookies for New Year's based on the design of Semisweet Designs (who did a much better job-ha!).
Mellow Yellow Dinosaur :)
My friend asked me to recreate a yellow dinosaur cake she found online. I don't know who the original artist was, but another caker posted her rendition of it here a few years ago along with some valuable comments about how she made it. Since this was my first 3D carved cake, I surely needed some advice! He is about two and a half feet long and all cake, but for his stumpy little legs, which were made with RKT.
I'm Dreamin Of A White, Blue And Pink Christmas :)
An unconventional color palette for Christmas but they're so romanic!
Pretty Patel Christmas Cookies
I was inspired to do these cookies using baby shower icing I had on hand after a friend sent me a picture of a cookie in a different color scheme that is similar to the tree. Wouldn't they be a cute gift for the parents of a new baby this time of year?
Pink And Blue Baby Shower
As I have mentioned, I'm a cookie novice. Like most cookie enthusiasts, SweetAmbs is my idol. The bassinet cookies pictured here are her design with a few minor changes of my own. I tried to come up with some equally cute and classy complementary cookies to go along with the bassinets and I am pleased with my choices!
Nordic Sweater Cookie Set
I tried to replicate SweetAmbs' iconic red and white Nordic pattern cookies. I am by no means on her skill level but it was fun to try!
Mint Damask Cake
So this was my first attempt at a damask stencil and trying to cover a tall square cake. Lots of learning to do still, but I'm getting there!
I'm a novice cookie decorator, so for this project my challenge to myself was to design a set of cookies with an eye towards color. I was hoping to replicate the deep autumn hues that I so enjoy this time of year. I think the gilding gives them that little extra something that makes me feel the warm comforts of home that Fall usually evokes.
I tried my hand at free handing people and building a turkey. Both need some work but I have definitely learned some tricks!
Gilded Thanksgiving Cookies
I tried my hand at a more refined color palette for these Thanksgiving cookies. I also tried to texture my icing in the squirrel to mimic fur. Not so sure that one translated well. Lol
Gold & White Vintage Christmas Cookies
I made these cookies for a vintage-inspired Christmas photo shoot.
