I made 150 cupcakes for my cousin Oliver's graduation reception. He had snickers, milky way and key lime. Some of their family friends made this display out of ice racing tires, since Oliver is an avid ice racer in the winter months. Pretty creative! Congratulations, Oliver! :)
I got asked to do this cake for a friend of a friend for her wedding. She initially wanted me to do all the cakes for her wedding, but since I am not licensed, I wasn't able to do so. I suggested doing a fake cake for the centerpiece instead of spending a ton of money on a real one, and that way she could just get sheet cakes, cupcakes or whatever else for the guests to eat. We had one at our wedding almost 10 years ago and no one knew the difference, and by looking at this cake, I am pretty sure you couldn't tell if it was edible or not, either! :) I also did the floral arrangement for the top and put together the ribbon and rhinestones to go around the tier bases. I hope to get a picture from the bride of the cake in the venue, and if I do I will post it on here, too. :)
I finished this cake this morning for a groom's supper cake tonight, I wanted to do a different twist on a fishing theme, something not so "cutesy" but yet theme appropriate. I think it turned out well. It's chocolate cake with snickers in the batter with a layer of carmel buttercream and snickers chunks in the middle and covered with more carmel buttercream. The "fishing lures" I made out of gum paste and painted them with food coloring, the bobber is an actual bobber I picked up at a store. (Don't worry, it's brand new, never used.)
This was a fun cake to make! It's made of 2 layers of chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream topped with fondant. The corner posts are pretzel rods covered with fondant and the rope is, of course, pull and peel licorice! The birthday boy was very impressed with his cake, so much so that he did not want it to be cut! :)
This Dr Seuss theme cake was for a coworker's little girl. It was super fun to make and I think turned out really well! The cake was chocolate cookies & cream with cookies & cream frosting, covered in marshmallow fondant.
Here's another Dora cake I also did this past weekend. Chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream. :) No cakes scheduled for this coming weekend, I get to go watch my sister go to her first PROM!
Next weekend I have a NDSU graduation cake as well as possibly another kid cake, I'll leave that theme a surprise for now....I think it will be another fun one!
