Elmo and Cookie Monster Cake | Eggless Vanilla Cake

Last year I made a beautiful rose buttercream cake for Rylee's 1st birthday. Her mom had the most amazing set up for her girly western themed party. You can see my blog post HERE
Not long after it was discovered that Rylee has an egg sensitivity!! So this years cake had to be eggless!
 
I tired several different recipes trying to find the perfect one. After attempts and a few different combinations I finally found a winner!
 
Rylee and her cousin Olivia celebrated their birthdays together this year so the cake was made for both of them. The theme for the 8' cake was Elmo and Cookie Monster. Figurines and decorations are made from fondant.
 
 

Twin Airplane Cakes | Red and Blue Airplane Cake

 
I am so behind on posting it's not even funny!! I always say once I get caught up I wont let myself get behind again....never happens :/
 
 
Oh well, here we go.........
 
 
So back in December I was asked to make 2 small cakes and 2 dozen cupcakes for two sweet little boys 2nd birthday. I was lucky enough to meet these two little peanuts at their newborn photo shoot when the were just a few weeks old, check out K.C Photography as she does AMAZING work. It still blows my mind how fast kids grow and even more, how fast time goes once you have kids!!!!
 
The 24 cupcakes were for the boys to celebrate with all of their daycare friends.


 
 
The boys are in LOVE with airplanes because their Daddy flies them. So of course that was the 'theme' for their cakes and as with most twins it was VERY necessary for them to have their own cake. Sharing is caring BUT so hard when you're little!!
 
Each cake was a small 6" with fondant decorations. The airplanes were made from carved rice krispies  and covered in fondant. How cool to be two and have your very own edible airplane!!

Classic, Elegant Rose Cake - Gumpaste Rose

Though this cake was little, only a 6", it took me hours to make! All the petals on the outside of the cake are made from gumpaste. They were cut, then using an impression mat, veined and then each edge of every petal was rolled to make them look realistic. I had to make the pedals a few days in advance as the cake had to be refrigerated and I didn't want the pedals to go limp from any moisture in the fridge.
 
The gumpaste rose topper was made the same way as the petals on the sides of the cake. I had to make each petal individually and then bend and attach it to the rose.
 
 

Minion Birthday Cake

This cake was massive!! It was made from 4, 8" cakes stacked and carved! It was then covered in buttercream, then fondant and then decorated to look like a happy minion :)

Bubble Guppies Birthday Cake

My Niece just turned two!!! It's crazy how fast the time goes once you have kids!
Her FAVORITE show is Bubble Guppies so her Aunty Tor had to make her a special bubble guppies cake and matching outfit!
 

All Bubble Guppies were cut by hand and hand painted...which took hours!!
 




Love the way it turned out though!!

Of course I had to make the birthday girl a special outfit!! Outfit details can be found at Little Birds Tutus & Boutique

30th Birthday Hunting Cake

This cake took FOREVER!! All the black fondant pieces had to be cut by hand which took me a few hours :/
The cake is painted to give it that 'sunset' glow. There is so much going on but I love how it all comes together!! I especially love who it is a reflection of the birthday boy :) Fishing, hunting and atv'ing!
