Super Mario

Image
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.

Paul's Retirement

For the hiker, runner, skier, here is a little tribute to what he's planning to do in retirement.

Peace cake

Tie died and Peace cut out, this was a fun little cake.

Fall Pumpkin

Image
I made this pumpkin spice cake just for fun, 2 stacked bundt cakes with a little carving, a little buttercream, a little fondant, a little airbrushing and ta-daaa, a pumpkin ready for carving.  The leaves are all fondant and airbrushed.

Dora the Explorer

Image
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

Image
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.

Thunder Cats

Image
Ok, in the 80s when Thunder Cats was a big cartoon, I was on a farm in Northern Alberta and got 1 TV channel on a clear day...so I missed out.  But this cake was for a fan of the cartoon and features Lion-O who has to be a very brave man wearing a unitard with a peekaboo stomach hole.

Lion-O is not upright because I didn't figure he'd make the transport just stuck to the side of the cake with buttercream.

Cutie Patootie Elephant

Image
This cutie patootie little elephant cake was for a lady at work and I love the way it turned out.

My Uncle Art

Image
My Uncle is coming this weekend and I was excited to make this cake for his birthday. The bowling ball and pin are made from rice crispy treats and covered in Fondant.

For a couple, retiring this week and planning to head off in a camper for a while, their Winnebago.
