Giant Strawberries?

This past weekend I did a cake for a little girl named Carsyn. She has a Strawberry Shortcake themed party. Her mom needed a cake that would feed 30-40 people so I thought I would go 3-D! This cake was 12 inches at the tallest point and almost 15 inches lot. It was very heavy. The stem was green fondant and the strawberry part was butter cream.

Beach Birthday

My friend Lisa turned another year younger and her family asked that I make her a little cake. This is an eight inch cake in butter cream. The shells are chocolate and hand painted in luster dust and pearl dust. Very sweet!

Indigo Wedding Cake

Here is a 4 tier cake that I took to Indigo Society Hall. The cake weighed about 40 pounds so I had to get my husband to help me take it to the second floor. The cake is butter cream with the initials that I made in advance and covered in pearl dust to make them shine. The topper is fresh flowers that were made by the florist and added to the cake once I got it there.

John Deere Fun

Here is a cake that Claire Grant ordered for her son Wilson. They were going with the John Deere theme which is cute for a little fella!

Who can resist Polka Dots?

Just added this one for fun! Colorful dots make me smile.

Wizard of Oz Cake

My friend Josie ordered this cake for her daughter Cathryn. The entire cake is butter cream and the shoes are molded from chocolate. I added some luster dust to the red shoes to give them sparkle. FYI... Cathryn's party rocked and she even got Hannah Montana tickets for her birthday! Watch out world...Cathryn's going to be the next big star - She got the moves, the voice, and the 8 year old attitude!

Beach Ball Cake

Here is a butter cream cake with a beach ball theme. I made chocolate flip flops as an accent to the cake.

Pink Lady Bug

I made this pink lady bug for Angela Cox's little girl. She brought me a plate with the theme on it and I duplicated the color pallet from the plate. This bug was big and cute. It's hard to see but there are curly antenna on her head. Angela said the cake was hit at the party!

Palm Tree Cake

Here is a cake I did for a young lady named Alex. She requested a palm tree cake that looked like a real palm tree. I fashioned the tree out of fondant and gave the fondant leaves a little texture. Alex's mom Angela said that they loved the cake. That always make me feel great!

Pool Party Cake

My appraiser friend (I too am a real estate appraiser) ordered this pool party cake for her granddaughter. I was a sheet cake with butter cream and I made little chocolate flip flops to accent the side of the cake. This was a popular cake this summer. I think I made 5 of them. Lots of pool parties going on out there!

Rainy Day Wedding Cake

This cake had 9 cakes and was super big. The day that I went to set it up, would you believe it was raining cats and dogs. By the time I unloaded the cakes one by one and got them inside, I was looking like a drenched rat! I needed a towel to dry off but wedding napkins would have to do. I just set the cake up as quickly as I could so I could get out of there. (To go and get dried off) I added fresh flowers in between the tiers which really gave the cake a great look. In the end, I was told that it stopped raining so that the bride could enjoy her evening which was great.

Hula Cake

Here is a two tier birthday cake for a luau. I did a tropical grass skirt accent around the top tier which was fun.

Dinosaur cake

A sweet cake for a young man that loves dinosaurs. Butter cream frosting and fondant dinosaurs make a great combo.

Airbrushing fun

This cake was so much fun to do. He is covered in white fondant and I air brushed him. I know the guys would like to get a cake like this. No smelly mess, just yummy cake inside!

YES! It is a cake!

I made this little guy at a cake class I took with Brownen Weber! (she has been on the Food Network Cake Challenge many times.) I ave to say that it was the toughest cake I have ever made. He stands 2 feet tall and his jacket is made of fondant. To serve him you would carve his belly and back. Almost like a turkey! These types of cakes are very labor intensive and I see why they cost so much. But they are AWESOME!

Cupcakes Anyone?

Hey everyone! I know it has been a while since I have added new post but here we go. I thought these little guys were cute so I wanted to put them on the blog. I can do them any way you would like.
