40th Birthday Parties Rock

Your 40th birthday doesn't need to be dull, this one definitely rocks!  The jeep is made from rice crispy treats and modeling chocolate, covered by fondant, the bottom rock is a cinnamon stuessel cake with amaretto butter cream, and the top rock is chocolate cake with peanut butter butter cream.

Who You Gonna Call? GHOSTBUSTERS!!!

I love the simplicity and cartoon like look to this cake, it was so much fun to do!  The cake itself is chocolate cake with Oreo butter cream filling.

Bicep Curl Groom's Cake

This unique groom's cake took a little time to plan for so the progress pictures are below.  The vertical forearm are structured using PVC pipe and connectors with metal flanges.  The flanges get covered in Modeling Chocolate first, then wrapped in rice crispy treats and again Modeling Chocolate and fondant.  The horizontal bicep and shoulder are made of red velvet cake, all covered in fondant and airbrushed for realism.

Work I progress, step 1

Step 2  Step 3, finishing proportions and barbell size.

Gender Reveal Cake

This super cute gender reveal cake is strawberry shortcake with fresh strawberries and buttercream.  Frosted in pink and blue buttercream rosettes with gum paste Converse shoes on top.  The color of the cake and buttercream inside reveal the gender of the baby on the way. (It was pink!!)
I think the shoelaces really make the shoe!

Concord Hills Piranhas Swim Team

This End-Of-Year party was a blast to celebrate a great swim season, the accomplishments of all the swimmers, and the club's 5th place finish at City Meet!

The bottom tier is chocolate cake with Oreo filling, the middle tier is carrot cake, and the top tier is cinnamon streusel.

Steampunk Top Hat and Suitcase

HWhat a fun cake this was!  Getting and making new molds for the gears, nuts, and keys was just the start of it!  This steampunk style cake is a red velvet top hat with cream cheese filling, and the suitcase is a cinnamon streusel cake with amaretto buttercream filling.  The top hat brim and stripes are modeling chocolate, and the decorations are out of fondant/gum paste.

Cupcake decorations were added as well.
