Daniel Tiger - A Throwback to Mr. Rogers

 
 
Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood.  A cheesy knockoff of a classic cheesy 80's kids show.  Not a huge fan of the show myself but the kids like it.
 
So here's a cake to celebrate the birthday of one of the show's "smallest" fans.

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.

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!
