Pine Forest

Posted by Steph on Dec 5, 2013 in Holiday, My Cakes

This cake is headed to my husband’s work for the December birthdays.  I wanted something quick to throw together as my weeks lately have been a little crazy!  I cut out the fondant/gumpaste blend pine trees the day before and then I was able to assemble this cake (with  making icing) in just over an hour.  The rest of the icing is buttercream, and I used some white cake sparkles to make the tops “snow like”.

Let it snow…

Its a snowy, snowy day here, so I figured I’d better catch up on a few cake posts.  This cake is actually from Dec for my husband’s work.  Mr. Snowman is made from an 8″ and 10″ cake, iced with a fondant scarf.

Winter Lamb

Posted by on Dec 19, 2008 in Baby, Birthday, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, Kid Themed, My Cakes

This was a 1st birthday cake – winter themed.  The lamb was requested because the little girls nick name involves the word Lamb 🙂  I had so much fun sculpting these little lambs out of fondant.   All I could think about as I made them was that saying “Mares eat oats and does eat oats, but little lambs eat ivy.  A kid’ll eat ivy too, wouldn’t you?”  When I was a kid we went camping in northern WI (Hayward) and they had a few animals at the camp ground – one of them a lamb called Lambsydivy (not sure how they spelled it though!)…  Lambsydivy = lambs eat ivy 😉   For some reason I’ve never forgotten about that lamb.

But enough about my lamb filled childhood 🙂  – we need the rest of the cake details!  There are 2 cakes, sizes 8″ and 10″.  Both pink butter cream icing with royal icing snowflakes I piped out, then painted with a pearl luster dust when dry. Below the cake pics are a few close ups of one of the lambs.
