Autumn birthdays cake

I made a little cake for my inlaws. They both celebrate birthdays within a month of each other, so we are having a family dinner....and CAKE!! It is chocolate with fudge frosting filling. The flowers were a new technique with royal icing. The leaves are fondant. I will let you know how it tastes!

Harley Gramma!

My Mom's birthday was this weekend, and the woman drives a purple Harley Davidson, the obvious choice for a birthday cake.....!?!?
The cake is chocolate orange (like the Terry's chocolate oranges which she LOVES at Christmas!) with chocolate filling. A thin layer of buttercream is under the black MMF! The logo is MMF with hand-piped lettering. The flames are MMF as well.
It was a hit!


This cake was made for one of my daughter's friends. Her 6th birthday was "Fairy" themed! I didn't have much notice, so I couldn't make the fairies, I bought a couple from Pixie Hollow!
The cake is rainbow, and the icing is all buttercream. The flowers are gum paste, with hand-piped vines.

Giraffe 1st birthday

This little guy is made of rice crispie, covered with modeling chocolate. The cake is marble, with buttercream filling. The cake is covered with MMF, and that is what the details are made from. There were also some chocolate balloons I made, to stick out around the giraffe, but I left them off for transport! This cake was picked up on the most humid day we have had in a while, and driven 45 minutes in an unair-conditioned car....I haven't heard if he made it or not!
