Fishing Pond Birthday Cake

This cake was made for my nephews 12th birthday. He loves the outdoors and fishing. The cake itself was a chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting. The pond water is blue frosting. The cat tails were made from spaghetti noodles and brown fondant. The animals and objects (ducks, fish, turtle, rocks and log) were all handmade using fondant.

More cake pops!

These cake pops were done for my mother's first grade class. She handed these out to the boys and girls at there last day of school picnic!

Soccer Ball Bouquet

This soccer ball bouquet was created for a Black and Gold Soccer Team. The cake pops were chocolate covered in the hard shell chocolate. The Soccer Balls had gold ribbons and the gold pops had black ribbons. They were placed in a container for easy carrying!

My Dad's Crossword Puzzle Cake

My Dad's 62nd Birthday cake! He loves to do daily crossword puzzles so I thought I would make him his own! The cake itself was a homemade dark chocolate fudge cake. The icing was a new cream cheese butter cream icing. It turned out wonderful and was so easy to make. The crossword puzzle was created out of black icing and white bits of marshmallow fondant. Everyone at the party loved it and so did he!

Tiered Hello Kitty Birthday Cake

Hello Kitty has become quite the popular girls birthday cake! They are so much fun to make as well. This hello kitty cake consisted of two different chocolate cakes: dark chocolate fudge and chocolate devils food! Homemade cream cheese frosting was used in between layers as well as the crumb coating. The outside of the cake is marshmallow fondant cream cheese piping. The hello kitty shape was cut out freehanded, because there is no such thing as a hello kitty cake pan.

Cupcake Cake

The Cupcake cake is my newest thing! The top and bottom of the cupcake are all cake! There are so many different ways that you can decorate and/or personalize your own cupcake cake. Each cupcake serves about 10-12 people. It was a big hit at work!
