50th Birthday Cake

This cake was really fun to make, the theme of the party was Camaro! The clients didn't care what the design was as long as it was based around a Camaro.

Both 8" and 6" rounds are Vanilla Cake filled with Chocolate Buttercream.
The Cake is covered in marshmallow fondant with fondant details.
The Camaro on top and the wheels around the bottom are made of rice krispy treats and covered in fondant.

This was my first attempt at making a car and I am very happy with the results. The weather was working against me while making this cake as it has been so humid but it turned out as I had planned.

Hibiscus Flowers

I am already planning my birthday cake, since I'm turing the big 25!! I wanted to have a cake with Hibiscus flowers on it as they are one of my favorite flowers.

These were actually really easy to make which really surprised me. They only thing is they are soooo fragile, I made 4 and I broke three of them. I do have a problem with touching my flowers before they're dry...lessons are always learned the hard way, sigh...
These hibiscus are made from gumpaste, they are almost 100% edible, I used floral staman's and painted them to get a more realistic look.

4th Birthday Party

My daughter just turned 4 and to celebrate we had a big party for her. What better way to celebrate then to be surrounded by friends and family and have a cake fit for a princess.
This 3 tiered cake was created espectially for my little princess. The cake is alternating layers of vanilla and strawberry cake with strawberry and vanilla filling. The cake is covered in marshmallow fondant and decorated with fondant details. There are 372 hand made pearls that make up the boarder of each tier. The butterflies and princess tiara on top are made of royal icing.

These hello kitties were so much fun to make! They are rice crispies that have been shaped and dipped in white chocolate then decorated to look like hello kitty.
My daughter went nuts over these as did some of the adults. These pretty little kitties make wonderful party favours for kids. The character possibilities are endless for these cute little creations.

These little creations are very simple to make but taste great and kids just LOVE them.
The marshmallows are attached to the candy stick, drizzled with milk chocolate and pink chocolate. The tops were then dipped in white chocolate and covered in pink sprinkes. Wrap them in candy wrappers and tie with a bow and you have excellent party favours!
