Teen Queen

12", 9" and 6" for 13th birthday party. 12" covered in buttercream with fondant stripes, 9" & 6" covered in fondant. The fondant on the 6" became much too soft after adding enough color to make it bright and wanted to slide off. Not as clean as I like, but you get the point :)

Annie's request


9" and 6" cakes with buttercream frosting and MMF dots and stripes. I got this idea from a picture of cakecentral.com (sorry, i am not sure who posted). I learned with this cake that horizontal stripes are not as easy as they look (in addition to the fact that I cannot make a straight line anyway).

Ivory dream

14" strawberry, 12" italian cream, 9" red velvet, and 6"
carrot. Ivory buttercream and fresh flowers. This was
such a fun cake to make because it did not have to be
perfect! Texture hides alot of imperfections! Was not crazy
about the topper, but it came from the florist already
made. All-in-all I am happy with it!

Arsenal

Groom's cake for a soccer fan! All buttercream except cannon and letters, which are fondant.

Tess & Chris


14", 10", and 6" square white cake with buttercream frosting. Satin ribbon to match brides-maids dresses and fresh flowers. Top and bottom tiers are wrapped with pearl strands.

Camo, baby!


First attempt at camo frosting. All buttercream except Duck Head in center. I don't get to do too many birthday cakes for guys so this was fun!

My first bow!

This is my first bow cake! I learned alot, it is not perfect, but I love it!! This whole process took 5 days! I am a little impatient so I had to redo some of the loops because I did not want to wait to put it together. Then some of them broke, so I improvised. Next time I will wait!!!

Yay Cake Balls!!!




Got bored today so I decided to make cake balls with leftover cake and icing. My co-workers will be so thrilled in the morning. Super easy! These are actually twice as big as they probably should be and I didn't spend the time to make them perfectly smooth and round, but I kind of like it this way! And who cares about what they look like when they taste SOOOO good!!!

Romantic celebration


8" and 6" vanilla cakes with raspberry filling and buttercream frosting. First cake I have done in a while with no fondant, so piping was not too great. This cake was for a wedding shower with a Parisian, romantic theme (not quite my style, but I think I like it!)

Pi Tau, 10 Years


This cake is a 12", 10", 8", 6" cake with buttercream frosting and MMF on the purple layer. The bow on the bottom is fondant, the purple flowers are fresh. The cake was made for the Pi Tau chapter of the Sigma Theta Tau nursing honors society which I am a member in Martin, TN. It is the 10th anneversary of this chapter, so celebration was in order. The cake did not travel well in the very humid day and was not as straight and smooth as I would have liked, but went over well.

It's Magic


This cake is for a 5 year old with a magician birthday party theme. the cake is chocolate with buttercream frosting. The bunny is rice crispy treat, buttercream and MMF decor. The hat brim is Fondant and I could not get it to curl on the ends like I wanted to. The bunny ears were originally fondant, but they fell and cracked, so I cheated and cut out paper ears.

Dolphin cake. This was my first attempt at a rice crispy treat figure. Covering in fondant was the tough part and it became VERY heavy! So I had to put a "hill" of fondant underneath it to support as a last minute addition.
