I made this Littlest Pet Shop Cake for my neighbor's little girl. We debated about just putting the plastic figurines on the cake, but Allie had very unusually requests for the animals-she wanted a lady bug and a pig. I ended up making them out of fondant and they turned out really cute. Allie's other request was for the cake to be pink (so I made a strawberry cake) and to have blue frosting. I added the big pink bow to make it look a little more girly and to match the animals. It turned out very cute.

I made this cake for one of the players on the LV Knights Soccer Team. His mom had ordered it for his birthday. I have always piped the soccer ball. This time I covered it in fondant, and used a carving tool to make the lines. I then painted the black parts with dye. It was so much easier and so much cuter. I made the Knight logo out of a piece of white gumpaste and painted it with dye also. I chose to decorate the cake portion with a harlequin pattern, with little red buttons. This is my best soccer cake yet!
Last week one of Seth's friends had a party and he asked me to make the cake. Cole was having his party at King Putt, so he said he wanted a golf club on the cake. I made a little fondant figure holding a golf club with the hole behind him. I saw cakes that had a cute argyle pattern and wanted to give it a try. The tiny red lines got a little tedious, but I liked how it turned out.
