Mad Science Cake

This Mad Science cake was made for a fun 9 year old birthday party where they made slime, dropped Mentos in Coke bottles, watched what happens to cut up Ivory soap bars in the microwave, and attempted to make ice cream (this one was a fun failure) and generally acted like 9 and 10 year old boys.

The cake is white chocolate/chocolate chip cake with Oreo swiss meringue buttercream filling.  The elements used to spell out the birthday greeting were pulled and numbered from the Periodic Table of Elements.  Creative license had to be invoked, however, to make the second letter really really small if it wasn't needed for the wording.

Tags and Flag Groom's Cake

I really enjoyed doing this cake for an Army groom, with dog tags indicating his last name and the wedding date.  The digital camo design was made by cutting out several shapes into stencils and airbrushing overlapping patterns with different colors.  This took a little time letting each layer dry before the next layer was added.  The flag is made of modeling chocolate and covered in fondant.  The dog tags are made of gumpaste/fondant mixed.



Cute Little Dinosaurs

These cute little dinosaurs were fun to make for this simple vanilla cake with Sweet vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream filling.
