Flower Baby Shower Cake

I made this cake for a baby shower we were throwing for a friend. The plates were striped with pink daisies on them, so I went with making a cake with a baby sleeping, wrapped in one of the petals. This cake was a lemon cake with a lemon gel filling.

Anniversary Cake

My neighbor asked me to make a cake for his wife for their anniversary. We decided on a red velvet cake with cream cheese filling. I thought it would be a good idea to copy their wedding cake and he wanted figures of their whole family on top - so this is what I came up with. I've never made so many little people for a cake before, it took a while!

Cars Cake

This was a 6 inch yellow sponge cake with peach filling. Because the cake was so small, I had to buy toys to go on top rather than make the Cars characters out of fondant.

Wolf Cake

I made this chocolate cake for a little girl turning 8. I really liked how the forest scene turned out. The little stream is marshmallow fondant with corn syrup painted over it to give it a glossy, wet look. The little girl loved it so much, they still haven't cut the cake!

Preschool 2011 Cake

Last Wednesday was my little Preschool class' graduation. I made this lemon cake to have after our short program. I made a little face of each kid with their name and the second row had crayons made of marshmallow fondant. The kids were cute and I will miss them next year.
