Race car cake

This is a birthday cake for a 6 year-old's birthday. It is vanilla sponge cake, chocolate between the layers, orange and red swirled fondant covering. The race cars (there are 6 of them!) are fondant, as are the name and details. The flags are paper!

Magic Wizard cake

I got a request for a "wizard" or "magic" themed cake. The birthday girl is turning 7, and she enjoys the show "Wizards of Waverly Place" (which I have never heard of!) So, I drew the logo of the show on the cake board and made a magically-themed cake. The cake itself is purple and pink marbled white cake. Between the layers is chocolate buttercream. It is covered in marbled fondant, with fondant letters, stars and her name. The hat is fondant, the wand is a Spiderman 'candy-stick' that I carved a bit and the book is two cookies doctored up with icing. Not bad!

This is just a shot to show the details on the top of the cake; the wizard hat, wand and book of "Magic Spells".

Christmas cake

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?!?
