This was sooo.. much fun! I loved trying to make this cake look like the real thing. My friends daughter was turning 15 and she wanted to suprise her with a cake that looked like the Guitar Hero video game that she loves to play. The cake is chocolate with chocolate buttercream and then covered in black fondant. I hand cut the Guitar Hero and flames from fondant and then painted them. everything on the cake is edible.
This was for a wedding shower. I wanted it to look like the back of a wedding dress. The brides mother was throwing a brunch for her daughter and wanted something in champagne and pink with a vintage style. I used edible pearl dust to give it an aged and shimmery touch. The cake was vanilla with raspberry filling and cream cheese icing. The cupcakes were vanilla with vanilla buttercream and chocolate bliss with almond icing.
I have been wanting to make this flavor cupcake for a while now and I finally got a chance. I was making some for my daughters school for teacher appreciation week and I thought I would give this one a try. The cake is chocolate with cherry chunks in the center and then topped with almond icing then drizzled with chocolate ganache and finished with a cherry on top. I loved these and so did my kids. Hopefully the teachers enjoyed them too.
This was my first three tiered cake I had ever done. The bottom is a 10" vanilla with vanilla buttercream icing, the 8" tier is chocolate with chocolate ganache, and the top is 6" vanilla with vanilla buttercream. Al lthree tiers were covered in fondant. Everything on the cake is edible (including the figures on the top). I joke that I had to "call on Jesus" to help me make him. It was not easy, but I love a challenge. This cake feeds 55-60 people.
This was a very special cake I had the priviledge of making in memory of a little girl named Sarah. Unfortunately Sarah was only a day and a half old when she died of a genetic heart defect. Her mother asked if I would make a cake for their March of DImes team party. They have walked every year for seven years now in memory of Sarah, but also to help raise money so that other babies can live. Here is a site that you can visit if you would be interested in donating to such a worthy cause. I figured a garden theme with butterflies would be perfect since they represent new life and beauty. I'll admit I have alot of practice to do on faces, but practice makes perfect. THis traveled all the way to NOrth Carolina so I wasn't able to get a picture of it all put together on the tree.
