Snowflake Wedding Cake

An almost Christmas time wedding was themed with blue and silver and white and the venue was beautiful.  The groom's cake was a laptop with a little marriage programming code on the screen.  The cake tiers were Vanilla cake, Red Velvet, Almond Poppyseed, and Chocolate cake with oreo buttercream filling.  My favorite part about this cake was how clean and white it was, with these beautiful silver, blue, and clear snowflakes all over it.  Some were sugar, some were Christmas ornaments.

Fun little fall cake

Lets see if this cake can fly.  I'm taking it as my carry-on for my flight tomorrow, only one layover in Dallas.  My biggest fear is that it gets too heavy or I get tackled by a following of people drawn by the smell of chocolate and sugar.

Update:  The cake board fit JUST inside the box, the box JUST fit under the seat in front of me, nobody tackled me in the airport and it made it unscathed.  The pumpkins and leaves were all airbrushed.

Super Mario

This is one of my most favorite cakes, it was so cute and fun, I just couldn't stop adding little things to it.  Super Mario is coming up out of an underground tunnel, ready to avoid the little bomb, killer mushrooms, and the venus fly traps.  Careful, there are turtles lurking around too.

Dora the Explorer

Our very special friend and neighbor asked for Dora the Explorer for her birthday.  She's made of rice crispy treats and then covered in modeling chocolate and fondant.  She's wearing her backpack and hanging out with her favorite stars.  (I did run out of time for boots too)

Two peas in a pod

This little cake is adorable, for a baby shower for twins, a boy and a girl.  The pea pod on top is made to be kept in a display case for the mother to be.  I finished the cake and took pictures and then realized I was going to put a string of green pearls around each of the plaques to look like peas.  Each plaque has same color toys cut out on them to give a very classy design.
