Rescue Bot Cake

I knew nothing about Rescue Bots when I was asked to do this cake....
....and I still don't.
I'm told this is Heatwave. 
(I especially like how the flames turned out.  :)  )

Moon Cake with Alien

When my daughter asked me to make her a "moon" cake for her birthday it took all my hard earned maturity to repress the inner teenager that just wanted to make an entirely different cake.

Oh well...  

Instead I ripped this idea straight from Pinterest but used an alien instead of an astronaut.

Harry Potter Golden Snitch Cake

If you ask what this cake is, you have no need of it...
If you want this cake, you need only ask....
and then pay me.  :)

Gender Neutral Baby Shower Cake

My son's teacher is having a baby so the class had a shower for her.  I hadn't done a cake for a while so I offered to do the shower cake.  

As it is, she doesn't know what she's having, which gave me the opportunity to create this fun cake.

White Wedding Cake in Buttercream and Fresh Flowers

 I love my new cake stand!!!

This cake was done as a sample for a wedding cake.  You may notice that cake in the above picture is slightly different from the cake in the picture below.

They are in fact the same cake.  The client just wanted to see two different frosting styles.  The first was a rough frost.  The second is a rugged linear frost.

I love both styles.  I really like the trend right now (not something I usually say) of the rustic wedding cakes.  They are not as polished, but every bit as beautiful.

Chocolate Polka Dot Cake

Holy Crap.  I think I just made the cutest cake ever.

If you know me at all, you know that I just LOVE polka dots.  

They are the theme of my whole kitchen.

A few years ago a saw this technique done on a cake and had to track down the lady who did it and pick her brain to find out how she did it.  It has taken me forever to get around to it, but you can bet I will be using this method again...and again...and again.

Will someone PLEASE ask me to make a tiered wedding cake in this style!!!!!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Cake

Blast from the past.

I'm astounded at the reemergence of some of these shows.  Of all the shows from the 80's to come back for our children, this would have not been anywhere on my list.

Oh well, I guess they are fun characters!

Gold and Pink Chevron and Flower

This cake was an absolute NIGHTMARE!!!

 I don't know if there was something wrong with the fondant or if I was having a really bad day, but nothing was working right.

First, the fondant kept tearing as I covered the bottom layer.  For those who have never worked with fondant, it is a huge pain in the a** to remove fondant from a chocolate frosted cake.  I finally had to give up and put a second layer of fondant on the bottom.  I was pretty frazzled after just covering one tier.

Second, the chevron print decided to rip as I was applying it.  The worst part about that was that I spent 1/2 hour delicately cutting it in one long strip.  So that had to be redone along with some improv to conceal tears that I couldn't otherwise cover.

By the time I got to the top tier I didn't care that there were wrinkles in the fondant, I was just happy it was still in one piece!  Then I sprayed it gold.  This was a new thing for me and I really liked the result.  What I wasn't prepared for was that it was a bit tacky after it dried so I couldn't fix the fact that it is tilting slightly. 

The flower was my redemption.  It was beautiful!

Lady Bug Cake Topper

I've been meaning to make this cake topper for a long time.  I really like ladybugs and it's just such a cute theme for every occasion.  What could be better?

Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Cake


This cake was pinned over 200,000 times on Pinterest.  
How could I NOT try my own version of it???

It was supposed to be made in a 9x13 pan.  I'm not a fan of 9x13 pan cakes so I did a 3 layer 9" round cake.

...didn't go well.

It still tastes good, does that count?

Transformers Optimus Prime Megatron Cake

This was a very fun cake to do.  It was a lot of freehand work and I got to break out my edible silver paint.  Yay!!!
My favorite part of the cake are the gears on the middle tier.  I just think they look cool.

Zombie Wedding Cake

So a few weeks ago I made some zombies that were to be put on a wedding cake.  I did a post about them then.
Well, the bride was very pleased with the result and sent me pictures of the final product.

The top of the cake was only 4" and there was a brain up there as well, so there wasn't much room to set the scene.

One of the zommbies was made to be dragging the bride away but it looks like there wasn't room and they put it on the bottom tier instead.  No matter, still looks great!

The bride liked them so much she has had them shelac'ed to preserve them.  Yay!!!
