Cake Story

I made this video for my Technology in the Library class this spring and I thought I would share.

Twilight Cake


My oldest daughter, Alexis, had a Twilight Birthday Party this weekend. She wanted the different images from the 4 Twilight books on the cake. I made an apple (okay, I covered a plastic one - the party planning required me to cheat a little), a white flower that I painted with red dye, a broken ribbon that went around the cake, and the cake was topped like a chess board and had a queen piece all made of Marshmallow fondant. The cake was white with strawberry filling - she wanted it to look like blood inside! It was a fun party and the cake was perfect for it.

Truck Cake


My brother asked me to make this cake for a co-worker, with only 2 days notice. I had to back the truck in cardboard because there wasn't time for it to dry. I thought the truck ended up looking pretty cool,considering I don't know anything about trucks. I also liked the little road signs I put around the cake. The tiny details were tough to do, but really brought the cake together.

Fishy Shower Cake


I made this cake for a baby shower that I was attending. The decorations match the crib set the parents picked out for their baby boy. It was a lemon cake with lemon filling.

Camp Rock Cake


A mom had seen my daughter's Camp Rock cake online and called to see if I could make one for her little girl. She wanted it to be more Rock 'n Roll and less Camp. I went with making the logo and a guitar out of marshmallow fondant, along with music notes and a bow. The birthday girl called me after her party to tell me how much she loved it.

Beach Ball Cake


I made this cake for my neighbor's son. He was having a pool party and the invitations were beach balls with the party info written on them. I made the little figurine to look like the birthday boy.
