Cupcake Wedding

(Click on the picture to get a better look)

CUPCAKES ARE IN!! The Brides love them!

Oh heck, Everybody loves them!


Chocolate and Vanilla all cupcakes iced with butter cream icing.
A cupcake wedding seemed to be more time consuming, but easier at the same time!
Each one having to be decorated. For this wedding I did 110 cupcakes and a 6" topper. the top cake was frosted then covered with fondant!

I am loving fondant so much! It has such a clean finished look!

Slot Machine Cake!

(Happy Birthday to you BOTH)

Crazy friends & Crazy Cake!

This cake was made with 3 12x18 and 3 8x12 sheet cakes. They were baked and stacked and sculpted to make the shape of a slot machine. A box lid was covered with black fondant to make the coin tray. Little LED lights were positioned to show that, yes, Bill you hit the Jackpot! All extra pieces were created from fondant and let harden. The handle was covered tinker toys (thanks to my neighbor, JAX for that idea)

I also made a dozen jumbo cupcakes with POKER CHIPS on top to decorate around the cake!

Thanks guys, you are the best!

Little Cakes

These are just a few little personal cakes I did. The football cakes (Raiders for Rachel and Forays for a fantasy football winning team)were baked in a William Sanoma pan. Very top heavy once it was iced. I used fondant, it is possible that the cake should not have the weight of fondant on it.
Oh well 'live and learn'
The two little cakes were made for my two students in my Primary class! They started 1st Grade so I thought it fun to create 4" cakes to celebrate! I love my kids!
The flower basket is a 6" cake, covered with flowers For Tonya!

tiny Wedding cake

This cake was for Jeremy Schoonmaker and his bride.
White cake with raspberry filling, and butter cream icing.
This was my first attempt at this type of flower.
Ribbon and pearls used for added accents!
I am always learning with each cake I do.
I can't wait for the day I have "practiced enough" to open a shop!!
Thanks Schoonmakers! Love you guys!


Fondant Girlie Cake

Happy Birthday Taryn!!!!

18 WOW!!!

Another Fun cake!

I am excited that the fondant I am using tastes so much better than other types I have tried!

I also am excited that this cake has a pearl shimmer over it that I know will be used more and more.

This is a three tier...6, 8, and 10, inch cake

all white cake with 3 different fillings, cherry, rasp, and strawberry!

The top is made with a chunk of strofoam secured to the cake. I used small craft mirrors to add a fun look to the cake.
