The Big 1-0 !

Posted by on Aug 27, 2012 in 3D Cakes, Birthday, Cupcakes, My Cakes, Novelty

This cake was made for 2 beautiful girls turning 10 years old!  The cake was made from 2 9×13 cakes that I cut in half and stacked up.  The accents are fondant.  I also made up a few cupcakes to go along with them (see below).  The design was based on a party napkin that was being used for the party.

The replica

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

A friend loved the cake at the top of the blog (brown/green one with the calla lilies) but wanted it in colors to match their party ware.  So this is what we did 🙂

Barbie Girl

Posted by on Feb 20, 2010 in Birthday, Kid Themed, My Cakes

My daughter turns 8 next Friday – hard to believe another year has come and gone.  It seems like I was just posting her birthday cake when she turned 7!  This year she wanted a Barbie girl theme.  I guess more “big girl” barbie?  Anyway, we had family over one day and her friends over the next day so…of course 2 cakes. 🙂  Here’s what she designed…she she designed them.  Right down to every detail…every dot color, every shape placement and the request of the 8 on top.  She even dipped into my colored pencil stash to help me sketch it.  It was so fun to see her bring her ideas to life on paper for me to create.  A budding cake designer!

Whimsical fun

Posted by on Jun 18, 2009 in Birthday, My Cakes

Its mid June … so time for the next work birthday cake for my hubby…  I confess I spaced out that it was THIS week until he reminded me on Tue!  Oooops!  But I planned out the idea (based on another cake I had seen and loved) in an hour and started baking the next day.  The actual decorating flew by faster than I thought it would.  And the result is as fun as I hoped! 🙂  This 3 tier cake is made up of 4″, 6″ & 8″ cakes, fondant covered and the accents out the top are gumpaste.

Striped Gift

Posted by on Jul 16, 2008 in Birthday, My Cakes

I had a cake dummy covered from the class I taught last night.  Plus I had the bow I showed them how to make so I tried to decide what to do with it…  This is what I came up with and it was done kinda fast 😀  So not perfect but still fun.  Its pink & brown stripes – lighting wasn’t the bestwhen I took this pic.  The bow and fondant ribbon holding it are are dusted in pearl dust.
