This was a cake I made for a little boy who LOVES Angry Birds. I wanted to capture the main scene of the game which was the sunset, the red angry bird and king pig. My husband made the blue/purple rocks at the bottom and I cut out the grass with an exacto knife. The red angry bird was cut out of gumpaste and I used edible food markers to add the details. I did the same for the pig. The blocks are made out of brown fondant and put together with royal icing, let to dry for 2 days. For the background I cut out the shape of mountains and bushes out of styrofoam board. I colored the details with copic markers and I glued some green construction paper for the bushes.
My longtime friend wanted me to make a Winnie the Pooh themed cake for her daughter's first birthday! So I decided to look online for a nice template to go by. I found a nice picture online and I printed it out. I put a white tissue paper on top of the print and traced the image with an edible food marker. I then put the tissue paper over fondant and re-traced the image. I cut the image out with an exacto knife.
I baked two 10 inch cakes. One was chocolate and one was vanilla. I torted and filled them with a raspberry and buttercream filling. Covered them with a crusting buttercream twice, then covered it with strips of light and dark green fondant. I wrapped a strip of fondant for the bottom and finished it with a fondant bow. Two pink flowers added that "girly" touch and I cut some purple letters out of fondant. I brushed the back of the pooh image with edible glue and pasted the pieces to the top of the cake! :) Tah-dah! a finished yummy Pooh cake! :D
This cake was a request from one of my friends. It's a topsy turvy cake with the word PRINCE on top and "Welcome Sweet Prince" on the bottom tier. The cakes are made with red velvet and frosted with vanilla buttercream and covered in homemade marshmallow fondant. I LOVED THE BOW! I saw a picture online and I decided to make my own! :) I cut 1x4 inch long strips of green fondant. Folded in half and glued the ends together with a bit of water. I let them dry overnight. The next day I painted on the blue dashes to make them look like stitches. All the letters are fondant.
This weekend I had to make a Baby Mickey Mouse cake :D The cakes were vanilla with raspberry cream filling yum! For the bottom tier I cut out different colors in the mickey mouse shape. The second tier I tried creating the baby mickey's overalls. The top tier had baby Izayah's name in white fondant. For the topper I tried replicating the invitation which had a baby mickey sitting with a cupcake in the front and a number 1 in the back. :)
This is the mickey invitation we received in the mail! :) So cute huh :D
YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! I finally received an order for a wedding anniversary cake! :D I'm moving on up lol! So this was to celebrate the couple's 7th year wedding anniversary! She requested vanilla cake with raspberry cream filling...if you haven't tried this combo....you need to! IT IS DELICIOUS!!! I handpiped the damask pattern...which took a while but it was well worth it...and
made a red gumpaste flower and the couple was also made out of gumpaste. I hand painted the words "feliz aniversario" with black food gels and clear vanilla extract. :)
This is a 3 tiered cake and it has different layers of vanilla, chocolate, and lemon cake. The vanilla cake has a pineapple filling. The chocolate cake has a chocolate mousse filling. And the lemon cake has a vanilla custard filling. I made six red hibiscus flowers which were pretty dang easy to make actually! What took a while were the kiddos on the cake. They were cartoon characters of her kids :D They loved the idea of "eating themselves" lol I love how much practice I've gotten from making cakes. You can tell I'm better at smoothing fondant ^_^ Not to mention the amount I save from making it myself at home! The stuff at the stores is EXPENSIVE! It's been really hot these days so on the way to the party, the fondant started bubbling out. I grabbed a toothpick....poked a hole...hid it with a leaf...and DONE! Nobody noticed :)
This is a "Brony" cake and from my understanding...it's a guy version of "My Little Pony". I thought it was a very cool idea! :) The cake is red velvet with strawberry cream filling. I covered the cake with white fondant. I used different colors of royal icing to create the image of the brony.
