Pink Zebra

Posted by on Jun 26, 2012 in Birthday, My Cakes

For this month’s work cake, my husband asked me to do something geared towards one of his co-workers who was leaving the university that week.  So that was the inspiration for this cake!  I love doing zebra print – its fast and fun.  This is an 8″ and 10″ with buttercream and fondant accents.

Monster High #1

Posted by on Mar 5, 2012 in Birthday, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, Kid Themed, My Cakes

This weekend was a busy one here as we celebrated my daughter’s 10th birthday with her friends and family.  This first cake was for her friend party.  She picked out the design and I just went with it 🙂  She loves Monster High so you will see a theme with this cake and the next 2 posts.

This cake is an 8″ round and the skull is done out of gumpaste, the wording is fondant.

Rockin’ Star Cupcakes

Posted by on Feb 26, 2012 in Cupcakes, My Cakes

Today is my daughter’s 10th birthday!  Double digits! 🙂  Tomorrow she is going to bring these cupcakes to school to celebrate.  They are her design right down to the fun zebra print liners.  She even cut out the fondant stars.  I did the icing swirl and she did the sprinkles and stars.  We make a good team 🙂

Minnie Mouse

Posted by on Oct 17, 2011 in Birthday, Kid Themed, My Cakes

This weekend we celebrated my niece’s 2nd birthday!  She’s a big Minnie Mouse fan so that was the party theme.  And my job, of course, was to create her a cake to go with it.  This cake is made up of 10″ and 8″ tiers.  The mouse “hat” is cake baked in a Wilton ball pan (just baked one side).  I then covered it in fondant.  The ears are made of a fondant/gumpaste blend, as is the bow.

Something Different – Yellow!

Posted by on Sep 15, 2011 in Birthday, My Cakes, Wedding & Bridal

It occurred to me as I was going through the photos of today’s cake that I really don’t do much in yellow for cakes.  I can’t remember the last time (ever?) that I’ve done an all yellow cake like this.  I’m not sure why since I love this color and its so happy to look at.

Today’s cake was inspired by a cake similar in style that I ran across in a trade magazine.   This cake [for September b-days at my husband’s work] is made up of 8″ and 10″ round cakes, iced in buttercream, and accented with fondant flowers.  Real simple.  It went together so fast and I love that when that happens.

So enjoy this lingering glimpse of sunny, yellow summer.  Fall is moving in on us here – we have a frost warning for tonight! (boooooo!) 🙂

Rockin’ Again

Posted by on Aug 16, 2011 in Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, My Cakes

Earlier this month my youngest turned 7.  We were out of town on vacation at the time so when we got back, we celebrated with family.  This year we combined her party with my niece’s party.  My niece requested something to do with Hannah Montana.  I ran this by my daughter and she was all good with it.  I decided to stick to the basic rock star stuff so here’s what I came up with.  This is a 10″ cake, iced in buttercream, with fondant “zebra stripes”.  The guitar and stars are made from gumpaste.

Hello Kitty in Black & Pink

Posted by on Feb 28, 2011 in Birthday, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, Kid Themed, My Cakes

And now for more Hello Kitty!  This creation was to finish off our birthday weekend celebrating with family.

First I have to make a comment – don’t mind the cake plate!  We got it cheap from a local store at the end of the Valentine’s day stuff.  The original cake design we had planned to do would have matched it a little better.  But then Emily and I ended up going another direction and I decided to just use it anyway as it made a great serving platter.

Anyway – that said… Emily laid out the design for this one.  After seeing a few pics online, she knew she wanted a 3D head on top.  The head is made of rice krispie treats.  I’m making up a basic tutorial on making rice krispies for this purpose and how to create a shape with them to use like this.   This kitty is covered in white chocolate melts.  She has an M&M nose, gumpaste bow and I used a food marker for the eyes and whiskers.

The cakes themselves are 6″ and 8″.  The top cake is white with mini chocolate chips and a chocolate pudding filling.  The bottom is a chocolate cake with an oreo filling.  All at the birthday girl’s request. 🙂

Graduation time…

Posted by on Jun 28, 2010 in Graduation, My Cakes

And this year I got to make one for the daughter of a friend who graduated high school this spring.  Their request was turquoise and zebra – and “can it be sparkly”?  So I got myself an airbrush, played around and ended up spraying the bottom tier a pearly color.  Its not as easy to tell in the pic but boy in the sun it sparkled!
