Bridal Shower Cake.

This cake was for a Bridal shower the only thing they gave me to work with was number of servings, the colors they wanted, and the cake flavor. I had originally planned something completly different but this was okay too.
 This is a 9 In. round chocolate cake with a chocolate buttercream frosting. The top was a 6 In. also all chocolate. I am pretty sure this was my first cake with a tier, so a bit of a learning curve is to be expected especially since everything I learned about cake decorating came from watching YouTube.

Happy Mother's Day Part 2!

A friend saw the cake I made for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day and asked if I could make a similar one for his wife. This cake is a strawberry cake with fresh strawberries and vanilla cream filling with a strawberry butter-cream frosting. The bottom cake is a 9 in. round covered in pettinice pondant. The cake on top is also covered in fondant the ribbon is made of gumpaste. The tulips and two leaves are also gumpaste. The "dirt" is ground up oreo.

Happy Mothers Day!

I made this cake as a present for my Mother-in-law for Mothers day. It is her favorite flower and her favorite cake (lemon). I am not sure if she will enjoy the lemon butter-cream frosting but I hope so.
I have had this cake planned for almost a month. It didn't turn out exactly how I had hoped but upon first glance my mother-in-law thought it was a real pot of flowers. I was pretty happy with the results. The pictures I took did not turn out that well so I am putting all five I took on here hoping one of them shows details better.

Super hero cakes.

I know you might have seen my Spiderman Cake already but I was in the mood to do more heros. It was a lot of fun.
This is smaller than the one I gave to the kid in my primary class. This is a 6 in. round about 3 in. tall

 This was harder to do than spiderman because of the S on the shield. Cutting it wasn't a problem but transferring it from where I cut it was.

This one was similar to Superman it was easier to cut out than the S but transferring the Bat from where it was cut without stretching was difficult.

Overall I was really happy with how they turned out. I was told the Batman was tasty as well. Which I worried about because of the black coloring for the fondant.
