I made this for a 1st birthday party. The mom loves for her kittle girl to have things purple rather than pink, so I made it really purple. The birthday girl got her own person cake as well. The cake is decorated with fondant ribbon, flowers, and butterflies.

I made this chocolate cake for 5 year old girl's luau party. They wanted it to be bright, floral, and fun. I made the base of the flip flops a few days ahead of time so it could dry. There are dowels inside to stick into the cake. I thought the bright flowers turned out cute, almost looking like a Hawaiian lai.
My daughter Camyrn turned 5 on Sunday. We had a princess party on the Wednesday before her birthday. I bought her a Cinderella Barbie doll to go in her cake. I used the wondermold pan to make the bell shape of her dress and made a thin round cake to go under her, because the Barbies are too tall. The cake is strawberry with covered with fondant to make the dress. Camryn had so much fun and loved her cake. The Children's Cake Gallery has a close up picture of the cake.

My youngest brother is a high school senior. His government teacher gave an assignment to do a cake that had something to do with government. Hence, the Boston Tea party cake. We formed the boat and barrels out of Rice Krispy treats, then covered them with marshmallow fondant. I painted the fondant with watered down food coloring to give it a wood grain look. Bo helped quite a bit and said his was the best in the class. A similar boat with a little island that had a treasure chest would be cute for a pirate party.

My brother's girlfriend's brother was getting married and they asked me to do the cake. It was a three layered cake that served 150 people. The bottom layer was lemon, the middle was chocolate, and the top was white with strawberry filling. It was frosted in white buttercream with a dot border. The green hydrangeas were silk. Weddings are a lot of pressure and I was happy to hear the bride liked it.

I made this cake for a girl's Sweet 16 party. The family sent me a picture of a cake from The Pink Cake Box website and asked me to recreate it using a different color scheme. It turned out very young and fun. The bottom layer is chocolate and the top is white cake. Both layers have Oreo filling.
