Madigascar Penguins Birthday Cake

I was asked to make a birthday cake with the penguins from Madigascar. I wasn't sure how well they we're going to turn out but I love them. They are all hand made from fondant along with all the 'painting' accessories!

The cake is an 8" vanilla cake and filled with strawberry buttercream.

Ballerina Princess Cake

I'm pretty sure every little girl at some point in their life wanted to be either a princess or a ballerina or both.


This cake was made for such a little girl! The hand made teddy bear is a princess ballerina wearing a sweet little tutu. I wanted to show off the little teddy feet so I made a pair of ballet slippers to go on top of the cake as well. I dusted the ballet slippers in pearl luster dust to give them some simmery shine.


The 6" cake is a vanilla cake filled with a chocolatey mousse pudding. The cake is covered in a light purple buttercream and has a pearl boarder which I dusted with pearl luster dust.

City & Muskoka Birthday Cake

I was asked to make a birthday cake with a city and muskoka theme. What better way to represent the 'city' here than the CNtower and the Rogers center. The best part of Muskoka is summer so throw in a lake, a dock,sandals, & some beer and you're set!!

I actually had the biggest problem with getting grey fondant! What could be so hard about getting grey right, white and a bit of black and boom you have grey.....well not always so. To make black food gel the company mixes a whole lot of colors, epecially dark ones like green and purple, if they add more of one my case green the fondant takes on a greenish tinge....add white and you get a greeny grey which was not what I wanted!! So after playing around a bit and yelling a bit I turned to Google! The solution...add PURPLE but just a bit and TADA grey!!

This 6" cake is vanilla and filled with chocolate buttercream filling. As a boarder I did a city skyline...not bad for a last minute cake!!
