Lego Ninjago Birthday Cake

Funny Story
 
I FINALLY got a request for a Lego Ninjago Cake.  It's about d*#@* time.  I had the cake finished and ready to go the night before. I was set to go.  
 
However, a mere 2 hours before delivery I decide it's time to take pictures...like I always do.  After the pictures, as I am putting the cake back, I TOTALLY DROPPED IT!!!!!!
 
I was stunned.  I have never, EVER come close to dropping a cake before and there it was, completely on it's top with a customer coming for pick up in 2 hours!  I panicked and made a few choice remarks....over, and over, and over again....then picked it up and put it back on the stand.  To my absolute astonishment, it was a little rumpled, but still in tact.  However I CANNOT sell a cake that has touched the floor.  So I immediately went to work...hands shaking the whole time.  I peeled off the top layer of fondant (the green turban) and went to work re-frosting, and re-covering the cake.  Thankfully, what had taken an hour the day before to half that today.  Whew!  Practice makes perfect I guess!  :)
 
So no harm, no foul, right?  The first picture is the cake as originally finished.  The second in the cake once redone.  Now keep in mind the second photo is taken on the countertop in crappy lighting.  NO WAY WAS I MOVING IT AGAIN!!!!

Starry Night Cake

So my kid's elementary school is having an Art Night this week and were asking for donations for their bake sale.
 
I guess I could have just baked some cookies, but where's the fun in that?

Pink and Grey Baby Shower Cake with Chevron and Flowers

Pink and Grey Baby Shower Cake
 
I love baby shower cakes!  I've really been liking chevron lately too so this was a fun one for me.
 
 
 
 
The topper is new for me.  I have never done the banner topper before.  I do like the height it adds to the cake, but I'm bummed that it's not edible.
 
I do like edible toppers.  :)

Chocolate Birthday Cake...With a Gnarley Flute!

Birthday cakes are the most fun because I can do anything from pretty and elegant to wacky themed cakes.  You can't get it wrong...and if by some miracle you did, they have another birthday coming next year to fix it.   :)
 
So this was a cake done for a mom who enjoys "biking, running, and oh yeah, playing the flute."  I can relate to that. The flute part, not the other stuff.
 
So I got to make my very first fondant flute to go on a cake.  I have to say, it turned out pretty darn cool.
 
 
 
The cake itself wasn't too bad either.

He or She Gender Reveal Elephants Cake

My sister-in-law did a gender reveal party this weekend and I was the lucky on who got to know and make the cake!
 
I could have just done a mix of pink and blue with question marks or something generic like that, but that would have been too easy and not nearly as much fun as making these bad boys!

 
 




 
And it's a Boy!!!

Xmen Wolverine Cake

I am partial to the Hugh Jackman version of Wolverine, for obvious reasons, but this was for a 5 year old who prefers the classic look.

Winter White and Gold Wedding Cake with MR & MRS Cake Topper

I don't know what it is with brides and Christmas weddings.  It sure is popular.
 
Well, I certainly don't mind having work in my otherwise slow season, but wedding cakes are the most stressful.  And having them due 4 days before Christmas is no help to my nerves.
 
 
 
 
No matter, it's over now.  But it did take a week for me to post anything about it.  Give me a break...it's been a busy week.   :)
 
 
So here is the cake assembled. 

 
And it is with the cake topper.
 

 

And all together.
 

And another of the topper..

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.
