Tropical 60th

Posted by on Jul 31, 2012 in Birthday, My Cakes

This past weekend we celebrated my dad’s 60th birthday!  He loves a warm climate and a tropical beach so that’s how he themed his party.  He found a pic of a cake that he liked and I replicated it.  This cake is a 2 layer 12×18.  I airbrushed the sunset as well as the water.  I also sprayed a pearl layer over the whole background to give it a slight shimmer.  Everything is buttercream.

Happy Birthday, Dad!

Birthday Hula Party

Posted by on Aug 20, 2011 in Birthday, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, My Cakes

My 7 yr old daughter decided she wanted a hula girl party for her 7th birthday with her friends.  So we went back and forth with a few design ideas and then she decided on a waterfall cake with palm trees.  This cake is a 6″ and 8″.  It is iced in butter cream.  The top palm trees are a fondant/gumpaste blend. The surf board is gumpaste.  The other flowers and palm trees are fondant.  For the waterfall, I first iced the cakes green. Then I roughly iced the waterfall in a light blue icing.  I then topped the blue icing with some piping gel tinted blue.  After that the other accents were added to hide the edges a bit.

This was my biggest project yet – a Dora island palm tree cake! Again based off a Wilton cake but I added some Dora figurines I got at Walmart instead 🙂
