Catching up & the Lawnmower Cake!

Posted by Steph on Aug 26, 2013 in Birthday, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, My Cakes

I can’t believe summer has flown by.  The other day as I was making up some cupcakes I was thinking about how I hadn’t posted a pic of the work cake I did for my husband’s work for August yet.  So today I was editing & resizing pics for the blog and realized there are SEVEN cakes I never posted (starting back in May)!  I guess the summer got away from me! 🙂

That said, here’s the first one for today:  A lawnmower, 40th birthday sheet cake!  This one had the specific request for a guy mowing lawn, beer can in hand, with butt crack showing.   Yep, you read that right.  My two girls giggled like crazy when they saw this guy on the cake.

Soccer Time

Posted by on Jul 19, 2012 in Birthday, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, My Cakes

There were actually 2 of these soccer cakes – but I only took a pic of one as they were identical except for opposite colors for the soccer players.  The players are fondant.  The nets are plastic (from the Wilton set).  The cake is 11×15 in size, one layer.  The rest is buttercream! 🙂

A Charming Castle

Posted by on Feb 25, 2012 in 3D Cakes, Birthday, Kid Themed, My Cakes

Tonight my husband and 2 daughters are off to a father/daughter dance at the school.  This is their 3rd year going and they have such a great time.  It is run by their Girl Scout troops.  This year, their leaders asked me to make a center piece cake for the event.  The theme?  One Starry Knight…they wanted a sheet cake but a castle with pink and purple.  Fun!

This cake is a 2 layer 12×18 cake in buttercream icing.  I put a 6″ round cake on that and used some of Wilton’s castle set pieces to finish it off along with lots of small fondant flowers.  The walkway is fondant and made with a impression mat I have.  I hope all of the girls tonight love it!

And a few closeups…
