Under The Sea

Under The Sea 60th birthday cake was SOOOOOO fun to make. All the sea creatures were made by hand and are 100% edible.
The 8" cake is a vanilla cake with chocolate buttercream filling.
The coral on top is made of chocolate.

I really wanted the 60 to be free standing but it is so humid out I was worried it would start to fall.

The sand is brown sugar.

The white standing coral is royal icing.

1st Birthday Baseball Cake

This cake was made for a member of our family who was turning the big one.
The cake is chocolate fudge with vanilla fudge buttercream filling. The cake was based around napkins and plates that were bought, it was a sports themed cake.

The base ball and bat are made of rice krispies and covered in fondant.

The hat and the shoes are made of gumpaste and are completely edible.

Live, Laugh, Love

This 8" Square cake was made for a very dear friend of mine. The only thing she asked for was a dark purple base and I was left to come up with the rest.

She loves Hibiscus flowers and the saying, Live, Laugh, Love suits her to a T.
This 8" cake is a chocolate fudge cake with a layer of vanilla cake and filled with vanilla buttercream icing.

Vanilla and White Chocolate Delight

This cake is a 8" square vanilla cake and is filled with vanilla buttercream icing. The outside of the cake is surrounded in white chocolate shards with purple chocolate swirls. The 25 on top and the curls are also made of white chocolate.

I was asked to make orange lilies are they were a favorite

25th Birthday Cake

I made this cake for my 25th birthday. I love hibiscus flowers and really wanted to have a cake with them as the focal point. I tried to go with a simple design for the rest of the cake so the hibiscus flowers would grab your attention.

The cake is a 6" and 8" cake and is covered in chocolate fondant with pink bands around the bottom.
Both 6" and 8" rounds are chocolate cake with vanilla fudge filling.

The hibiscus on top and side are made of gumpaste. I used floral wire to help give the hibiscus petals some support.
