I had a client order the Minnie mouse cake I have done in the past, with mini-cupcakes. She wanted to display them together, so she ordered a cupcake stand as well. I found directions to make them online and it looked pretty simple. It took forever. I hadn't gotten tubes to go in the middle that would quite work. I finally got it. A project that should have taken 20 minutes took hours, but now I know what I'm doing.
My baby brother report to the MTC (Missionary Training Center) tomorrow, to serve for 2 years in Macon, Georgia. We had an Open House type dinner last week, so people could come wish him well. I made this cake for the occasion. The giant Peach the fondant missionary is sitting on is made of rice krispy treats. I covered it in fondant and painted it with food dye. The cake is white cake with a peach filling, of course!

I made this lemon cake for my son's 5th birthday party. It had a Toy Story/Woody theme. The hat is made of Rice Cripsy treats and I finally did it the right way. I frosted the Rice Crispy treat before putting the fondant over it! It came out so much smoother. It's amazing how much you learn everytime you make a cake.

My brother sent me an awesome picture of a Subaru Car Cake and asked me to make one for his co-worker. The pic he sent was so good. I do not usually carve cakes, so I thought I would try to make a sponge cake to make the carving process easier. It turned out more like a brick than cake. So.... I made a chocolate sponge cake and carved it. The cake turned out OK, but I think I need to stay away from too many carved cakes. This cake had me in tears.
