Thanks to helipops for her Jester wedding cake design. This is 12" and 8" cake with 6" styrofoam ball--all covered in fondant. Handcut black and white "leaf" pattern. Topper was made by BD girl's mother.
I so love this cake. Made with 1/2 ball pan and a 6" round. Carved the top flatter and with some definition. Gumpaste bill, cap coverd in fondant and airbrushed.
Inspiration from another CC person...I will find the name and post it shortly. I only wish I made the cap bigger. Fondant rifle, deer head and cap, frosted in buttercream. Gumpaste shotgun shells airbrushed.
Made from an 8" square cake and 9" round cake. Cut square cake in half and topped the bottom layer with large Hershey bars. Rounded edges on round cake...topped with other half of square cake. Airbrushed details.

Crisman Tablescape 2009
Made for a Tablescape fundraiser. Using Bronwen Weber's Caddy Wampus stand (plus I added an extra tier). All fondant cake dummy. We even hand-painted plates to match the tiers.
This is what I call a Jerry Cake (a client named Jerry ordered it for his groom's cake about 10 years ago). Chocolate fudge cake with chocolate buttercream, chocolate ganache and chocolate tiles. Color flow TT side pieces. Gumpaste topper that was airbrushed--it was a pain taping off the pattern (and it bled a bit) but looks good.
1St And Pink
This was made for a first birthday...Client brought me a pic from the internet. If this design belongs to someone on CC, thank you for the inspiration. Gumpaste bow and banner. THere is a "1" to go on top but I didn't put it on until after delivery.
I was so proud of this cake...until I delivered it. Major crack issues at the side and the middle of the forehead. Made from 2 small ovals for the face and muzzle and 3 9" round cakes. Frosted in buttercream and airbrushed.
Made from two 2-layer 8" cakes sitting on a 3" x 8" styrofoam base--all frosted in chocolate buttercream and then airbushed with red for a burgundy effect. Dr. Pepper logo is an edible image on wafer paper. Top is fondant air-brushed silver. If the logo was just a bit smaller, it wouldn't look squatty but I was happy with it.
