This was a fun one to work on! Running joke between Mom and Daughter because the Daughter would always buy Mom something with a butterfly for her Birthday every year - so for the Daughter's 30th, Mom turned the theme on her! :) Chocolate sheet cake with vanilla buttercream icing decorated to match napkins for the party. Butterfly wings were made using gelatin - another new process for me! Fun to do and very pleased with the look! Chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream icing swirls topped with a gum paste/fondant butterfly and a sprinkle of white nonpareils - absolutely loved the look of the cupcakes! :)

This was a hunter's themed Birthday all the way! First off, the main Birthday cake: a yellow vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream filling, covered in blaze orange fondant and edged with green fondant grass. Then topped off with a deer, hand formed using rice krispie treats and fondant, which was then painted using gel coloring and lemon flavoring. One dozen chocolate truffle cupcakes topped with a swirl of hunter green vanilla buttercream icing and hand formed fondant shotgun shells! Second dozen cupcakes was chocolate chip, topped with a swirl of hunter green vanilla buttercream icing and hand formed fondant blaze orange hunter caps!

This was a fun request! Birthday girl was having a sleepover for her Birthday, so Mom and Dad wanted a cake fashioned after a sleeping bag! Vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream icing and some fondant cutouts for details.
