There's a new "Cake Artist" in town!!

My dad is an artist and my son paints with my dad at his house.  Since it was his birthday, I decided to have him "paint" his grandpa's birthday cake.  He was so excited, I couldn't get the icing in the bags fast enough.  This is what he did and I of course helped with the fondant accents.





Happy Birthday Grandpa!!

Ben 10 Birthday

A close friend of mines son is celebrating his 6th birthday and is a big Ben 10 fan.  She gave me a few ideas and this is  how I put it together.

Happy Birthday Aiden!  Hope your day was as special as you are!

Puppieshelter.org

I was asked to help out with the puppieshelter.org's fundraiser and so I made up a couple of baskets for them for their Chinese auction.  This is the end result.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!

Happy Birthday to me, happy birthday to me!!  I had to do it, had to make my birthday cake.  My husband offered to buy me one but I had fun making this one.  I've been wanting to try the zebra print and had a white bow I made a while back stashed away so this is what I came up with.

I was tired of making chocolate cakes (never thought I would hear myself say that), so I made wedding white with buttercream filling, and the outside is all fondant and of course you have to give it some luster by additng pearl dust!  I LOVE IT!!

It's a Boy!!

A last minute cake a friend of mine needed so I whipped this up in one night, luckily I had a cake tucked away in the freezer.  She couldn't make the baby shower but was meeting the mom-to-be for dinner and wanted to bring dessert.  She said to do whatever, just have "its a boy" on it.  So being last minute, this is what I came up with.  She loved it!!

WWE Wrestling Fans!!!

My neighbor Lisa asked me if I would do a wrestling cake for her boyfriend Doug.  Well of course I can't resist a challenge.............I know nothing about the WWE.  I had to do my homework and search the internet for some ideas and I think I got it!  I even made little figures that are to represent Doug & Lisa.  Take a look!




This is double fudge chocolate cake, buttercream icing, fondant accents and fondant/gumpaste figures and I tried to use lace licorice for the ropes but it didn't work out so I used ribbon. 
Happy Birthday Doug!!!  Thank you both for having me make your cake, it was a lot of fun!!

Wilton Course 3 Fondant/Gumpaste Final Cake

YAY!! I completed my favorite course.  I couldn't wait to learn fonant and making flowers with gumpaste.  Everything comes out so beautifully.  Wilton took out some things in their curriculum like the "drape" but my teacher made an exception and showed me how to do it anyway.  Thank you so much Judy!  I just love it!!



Club 441 Celebrating 7 Years!!

Congrats goes out to Ken Lowry on 7 years of Club 441.  I had the priveledge of doing his anniversary cake and this cake was a lot of fun!





The base of the cake was fudge marble, buttercream icing, and fondant accents.  The man (Kenny) was made out of fondant and the glasses, cigarettes, bottle, etc were made with fondant/gumpaste. 

He loved it!!  Congratulations again Kenny!!

Denise Russell Drag Queen/Barbie Cake

I was asked to do a Drag Queen cake for Denise Russell who is celebrating 30 years in the business.  I don't have a picture of here to post to compare it to the doll though.  The dress I did is very similar to one she wears during her show.  I hope she liked it.  I know other people at the event loved it!



The doll was double chocolate fudge cake and was iced in buttercream with edible glitter accents and pearls and the microphone was made from fondant.  The stage was a fudge marble cake iced in buttercream with fondant accents for the silouhettes and lights on top of the stage was made with fondant also.

Course 2 - Flowers & Design Final Cake

Yay!! I finally completed Wilton Course 2 and this is my final cake.  I decided to do a basketweave cake with royal icing roses and rosebuds.  I can't believe how easy this technique is, time consuming though.
