He's Trapped In The 80's

So what better than to make a cake that represents that,
by creating Roy's very favorite pair of shoes!
and of course I needed to create the Vans shoe box,
so that they had enough cake! Lots of cutting and hand painting on this one.
Thanks again Kristi!

Two Birthdays...One Cake


Side one is for a little girl that loves Hannah Montana,( if you follow her cord it goes around the cake to...)

Side two is for her Grandpa, he is an electrician, so he has the plug to H.M's microphone! He needs his ladder to get to the top of the cake to plug it in to the outlet!!
Chocolate cake and buttercream, with fondant. Most all the parts & pieces are made with gumpaste or fondant. The lights on top are floral wire and LED lights that are stuck into fondant "light fixtures"

Who Loves Camping

Camping is one of Kristi's favorite things to do as a family!
So what better to do for her.... A CAMP OUT!
So this cake is created out of MANY things!
Teddy Grahams peeking into the campsite from all sides... Big Evergreens are fat pretzel sticks upside down ice cream cones covered in buttercream, tiny pretzel sticks and candles make up the fire pit, the rocks are all Raisinets candy. Turn out the lights and light the fire pit! FUN!
I made a gumpaste tent and fondant members of her family (which I understand Jaron ate all of!) in their sleeping bags!
You must know that Kristi's last name is Wood!
So how could I not title this cake... "The Woods"??
Chocolate cake with Snickers filling

Princess Aurora Cake


This cake was for the sweetest little girl, who just like her mommy, loves Sleeping Beauty!
I created this topper as I did Tinkerbell and others. Made of gumpaste, and sprayed with food color, all they wanted was lots of pink and purple, and of course Aurora on top!
This was just for a few people so it is a 4" top cake and an 8" second tier.
Lots of gumpaste hearts and fondant roses. Buttercream and fondant covered. The small pink "stars" on the top cake are painted on with a tiny brush and food color.
Also if you look close you see the little pink toole to frilly it up a bit! Not that it needed that :)

Friends are AWESOME!

My friends are so AWESOME! They call up and say..."I want a cake these colors, and this flavor.....create something"!! Then I get to "create"
I love the art of cake decorating! The problem is I can't create unless my home is in order! I must not have a thousand things on my mind! This is difficult!
Once I sit down the ideas start pouring out and I am grateful they give me free reign so very often!
This cake is for a friend at church who was surprising her daughter!
This is my first attempt at Tiger Lillies, so don't you dare look to close!
Thanks Deb!
