This is the cake that I made for the Play School Christmas Party on Saturday. The cake is apple spice. The icing is just buttercream. The tree is an ice cream cone and the presents are little pieces of cake. Santa was made from gum paste! Cute, eh?!?

Handy to pull out for any youngster on a car or plane trip. Travel VERY well. The crayons are easy to see and easy to replace, each in it's own little pocket. Keeps crayons and markers from becoming lost rolling around on the floor. They roll up and are secured closed with velcro or an elastic. Fun gift-especially if you include a colouring or activity book.

A "pinky-pink ballerina cake, that is rainbow" was the request this year! The round tier is a white cake with pink, purple, blue and orange swirls. There are sliced strawberries and buttercream between the layers, and it is covered with buttercream and MM fondant. The large rectangle is a pound cake with buttercream. The figure is made of gum paste, my first one. I learned A LOT making her, but Peekaboo loved her!

A request for a cake came in on Saturday...for Tuesday!!! AHHHH!! I said "yes"-crazy woman that I am!! It was for a 30th wedding anniversary.
The specifics; New Orleans swamp, married couple (in white marriage garb) on a raft, alligator chasing raft, slot machine with "30" on it somewhere....!
So, this is what I came up with. I, of course, had lots of other ideas after the fact...but, it was pretty cute!
