When my friends asked me what kind of cake I was working on, I said, "It's a couple in bed......watching TV." It sounded a little naughty for a second. I thought the couple turned out cute and I made Heroes logo on the TV because that was one of the birthday girl's favorite show (luckily she liked a show with an easy logo!)

This is a cake I made for one of my daughter's friends. There are 5 girls that do everything together. Heather wanted a Hello Kitty cake and when I showed up at the party with this, the girls loved it. Heather told me her grandma (who is a very talented cake decorator) wouldn't let them eat the Hello Kitty figure because it was too cute.
My friend's little boy was turning 1 and she asked me to make a Baby Einstein cake. The cake was white with buttercream frosting and the decorations were made of marshmallow fondant. I spent forever trying to get the elephant's trunk to point up and couldn't get it. He's still cute though.

This cake was a challenge. The only thing I knew about Video Poker was they have the machines at 7-11. I actually went to a 7-11 store and took some photos. I didn't even know what a good hand would be, I went with 4 aces because that would be easier to make than face cards. It is a white cake filled with custard and fresh strawberries.

I made this cake for a little girl who was have a luau themed party, and the mom had requested a turtle. There is a little cake under the shell and the rest of the turtle is made from Marshmallow fondant. I liked the way the coral looking pieces behind the turtle turned out. They are pieces of fondant that were rolled out and had little circles cut into it and dried on a curved surface.
