Spiderman Cake

I made this for a kid in my primary classes birthday. My first time using Pettinice Fondant. Pettinice is really tasty. I am not sure how much I love the texture though it is really soft which is great for eating but is a little scary to work with. I am really happy about how it turned out it went on the cake perfectly, so I can't really complain.

The cake has buttercream underneath. The best tasting I have made so far. The webbing and eyes are also buttercream. The balls around the bottom the blue coving the cake and Spideman's face shape are all fondant. The black on and surrounding Spiderman's face are also buttercream. (8in. round 3 1/4 in tall.)

Dusted flowers

The flowers on this cake were made in white gumpaste/fondant. I dusted them with petal dust. Green, yellow, and brown. The brown was actually cocoa powder. The leaves were a bright green. I just dipped them in the cocoa powder. I didn't dust them off too well, thats why they looked like they are covered in dirt. They cake was easy to make and fun. I am really excited to be learning how to make flowers for cakes.

The first star cake I made.

We were in Micheal's craft store and Henry (my son) saw the Lighning McQueen pan and wouldn't let it go even for the cashier to ring it up. I was so excited to try out a shaped pan. The instructions were very easy to follow. I really loved making this cake. Henry and the kids loved looking at it and hopefully eating it. This is one of two birthday cakes for Henry.
This is Henry's other birthday cake. Also very easy but no instructions I came up with this one on my own.

The first cake I sold

I got a call from  a friend saying his co-worker was looking for someone to make a cake that would match their daughters dress. The girls mother said she wanted a cupcake sort of cake and the colors were pink and brown. This is what I came up with.
