Dr Seuss topsey turvey

This topsy turvey is angled to look like the gumpaste kids are pulling the cake down. This was a lot of fun to do and too cute!

Organ Donor Theme Birthday

I was very honored to participate in this surprise birthday cake for a man who had a heart transplant one year ago.

The cakes are iced in buttercream. I wrapped a chocolate fondant ribbon around each tier. The top tier has the "Donate Life" logo. The middle tier has a lattice impression around all sides and the bottom tier has "one organ donor can save 8 lives"

3D Snake Cake

I baked a yellow pound cake in a 10" bundt pan then cut it into quarters. I alternated the pieces to create the snake shape. I carved the first piece to resemble a head and used the extra pieces left after leveling the cake to create the coiled tail at the end. I iced the cake with buttercream then used a textured paper towel to create the scales. I airbrushed the cake with brown first then overlayed with green. I airbrushed the green diamond pattern along his sides and used a peice of gumpaste for the tongue.

These cakes are for sisters who are one year apart. I placed edible images on the cake and the polka dots coordinate with the invitations. I cut the letters out with a gumpaste cutter.

Pregnant Belly Cake

This is my first attempt at doing a pregnant belly time i'll make her a little further along!

This cake is a 2-layer 1/4 sheet cake for the belly, iced in buttercream then I used a cookie cutter to cut out thin slices of cake for the feet and placed on the side of the cake. Then I covered the entire belly with fondant. The breasts are a 6" round cake with 1/2 of the round ball pan on top, iced in buttercream and covered with fondant.

Baby Converse

I made the pink Converse shoes out of gumpaste. The cake and cake board are covered in fondant then airbrushed with a pink sheen edible dust. The base of the cake is wrapped in a pretty plaid ribbon. The cake and shoe can also be made in baby blue for a boy or any other color requested.

Pearlized Lace Cake

This is a 8" round white cake with strawberry filling done for a Retirement but I think the design could also be for a bridal shower.
