Baby Shower

This is a baby shower cake. It was supposed to be single-layer, but looked so much better as a two layer with some trimming! The cake is pound cake with a sponge cake on top. The whole thing is covered in buttercream.

This birthday cake, Princess themed, is for a 4-year-old. The cake is 'rainbow' (white cake coloured with food colouring and swirled) iced with buttercream and covered with pink MM fondant! The tiara is piped royal icing with edible silver ball decorations. The lettering and details are hand piped icing.
I love it!!

Peekaboo's 4th Birthday Cake

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!

Louisianna anniversary cake

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!
