Fun, girly cake and cupcakes designed to match the Birthday girl's favorite pj's :) Cake was chocolate and vanilla with vanilla buttercream filling, covered in fondant with fondant details and hand modeled gum paste ballerinas. The cupcakes were vanilla and chocolate with buttercream ruffled tutus and fondant bodices. Can't say just how much I LOVED working on these! :)
So I had to make a Birthday cake for a Blue Devil fan this weekend - if he weren't such a good friend, I might not have had the stomach lol! ;) Between his wife and I we decided it would be fun to put a twist on an old favorite and try a blue velvet cake, vanilla buttercream filling and cover it all in fondant. You can see a before picture and an after - the cake crumbs in all their blue gore :)
Fun ladybug theme for a special little one's First Birthday! Large cake was vanilla buttermilk and chocolate with vanilla buttercream filling and frosting with fondant details. Cupcakes were vanilla and chocolate with vanilla buttercream and fondant toppers. The smash cake was vanilla buttermilk with vanilla buttercream frosting and fondant details. :)
Well, this being my first time attempting a 3-D, sculpted snake cake - I have to say I was pretty pleased with how he turned out! And I really enjoyed the challenge too! Red velvet cake with vanilla buttercream filling, covered in fondant with hand painted details for a special little guy's Birthday. It was a lot of fun to see the transformation as I carved the cake, then covered it with fondant, etched the details with my tools and then added the painted accents - you could truly see it come to life! :)
What flavor cupcakes should I make for my children's teachers for back-to-school? I debated over this for quite a while then thought, "What would I need if I were a teacher heading back to work?" And I had my answer. Coffee! Moist vanilla latte cupcakes with vanilla bean latte swiss meringue buttercream topped by chocolate covered espresso beans! Maybe those helped make their first day back a little better ;)
Fun little cupcakes for a true handyman's Birthday! There were both vanilla with oreo buttercream and red velvet with cream cheese frosting - yum! I hand sculpted each tool using a fondant/gum paste mixture. (My tool-loving Dad would be so proud!) :)
I really enjoyed attempting this fun, brightly colored cake which was inspired by a lovely Pink Cake Box design! Fresh strawberry cake with cream cheese filling, covered in fondant with fondant and gum paste details.
Oh, I loved this theme! (I know, I know - it seems like I say that with every project) I really did love this cake though! :) Almond pound cake with vanilla buttercream filling, covered in fondant with fondant and gum paste details all came together so nicely for this baby shower cake!
