Poker Table Cake

I made this Poker Table cake for my client's son's 21st birthday. I baked the cakes and filled and frosted them, when I noticed the bottom layer was buckling. I sometimes forget how fragile cake is to work with. All the neighbors got a big chunk of cake and I started over. This was a chocolate cake with Oreo filling.

The client offered to bring over cards and chips, but as a cake decorator, I like the challenge of trying to make everything edible. I cut out these cards and let them dry overnight, then I used food dye to hand paint them.

Talent Show Star Cake

I made "A Star is Born" baby shower cake recently and my daughter, Camryn, thought it would be perfect for her birthday party. I just made a Camryn figure singing to put on top of the strawberry cake. Her party involved make overs, a photo shoot, and each girl sharing a talent. It was fun and Camryn loved her cake.

Chocolate Covered Oreos

If you think Oreos are chocolatey enough on their own, you would be mistaken. My daughter and I found these chocolate molds that coat Oreo cookies. She brought these to her school class and her musical theater class on her birthday. Her theater class is putting on a production of Beauty and the Beast next month and we thought the rose molds were perfect. We wrapped them in little treat bags with a tag that said Happy Birthday Camryn! on them. The kids loved them.
