Drum Set Cake

This cake was a challenge and I loved it!  It was something new for me to have to figure out what to do for the drum stands and how to build them, but I think it turned out well.  The cake was white with vanilla buttercream, and chocolate fondant.

Strawberry product

Well, I finally got my strawberry cake recipe down, and just in time for this strawberry lover!  He wanted a strawberry cake, with strawberry filling, and strawberry buttercream icing, so here it is.  I did add some whipped chocolate ganache as a contrast for the piping though.

Bumble Bee Cake

This was another really fun cake!  I love it when I can match the invites or decorations to a party :o)  This was a white cake with cream cheese icing and strawberry filling...yumm!  The "smash cake" beehive, however, didn't have the strawberry a one year old a cake at all is messy enough without the bright red strawberries!

"Tangled" Cake

This cake was so much fun to do!  Everything was edible on the cake except for the column of the tower. I used rice crispie treats, graham crackers, chocolate cake, buttercream icing and fondant. Oh, and of course some luster dust to make it sparkley ;o)
The order date was changed last minute and I didn't have time to bake all the cupcakes she needed (there were about 6 dozen) so the woman who ordered baked her own cupcakes and I brought my little sculptures to go on top of them.  I really had a blast with all the sculpting and challenges in this cake!
