Tattoo Machine Cake!

This was a cake for a friend "Big Papa" who is a Tattoo Artist. Cherry Chip on the inside, very tasty however a very delicate and crumbly cake which made the carving and crumb coating difficult. Also having my husband who is also a Tattoo Artist hovering over my work was not an easy task! Do you know how hard it is to make a tattoo machine cake with a Tattoo Artist critiquing your every move? It turned out awesome and he was very happy!

Bridal Shower Cake

This was one of my first attempts at stenciling on fondant. It was for a close friends bridal shower. My hands still shake when I am piping especially when it is a dark color on top of white. But even though you can see the shaky lines it still looked awesome!

Do or do not.......

There is no try!
This is my first Star Wars cake and my only one that I have done so far. I am eager to do another! The cake was pretty simple once I got past the detail in Yoda's head. I absolutely loved this cake and I was glad that I was not around when they cut into Yoda!

Bear Baby Shower Cake

This was a fun cake to do. I had the help from a girl I worked with who generously donated her kitchen space to make a mess in! We used a pound cake for the bear in a molded pan so there would be now carving needed. He (the bear) ended up being a little too heavy for the bottom layers and started to lean as the day progressed. The blocks, bottle, and duck were made out of solid fondant. The icing was your standard Icing sugar, vanilla, shortening, butter mixture and it was rot your teeth sweet!

1st Birthday Bug Cake!

This was based off of a print from the child's room with baby bugs on it.

Cinderelly Cinderelly, night and day it's Cinderelly!

The hair is made with fondant but the rest is nothing but piped stars! It took a long time but looked pretty cool when done! I haven't done many cakes this way because most people ask for more outrageous 3D cakes. I think that the slab character cakes are becoming out of style.
