Pots and Pans Cake

This cake was made for a lady that was turning 50.  This cake was so fun to make!  I followed the sketch and tried staying true to colors and everthing as the sketch.  Everything is edible.  The board was covered in white fondant marked like tiles.  The lady holding the the wooden spoon is a sugar cookie that I decorated with MMF and Royal icing.  The pots handle is made of RTK covered in white chocolate and fondant.

Mickey Mouse Playhouse

The client was torn between two cakes she saw, one that I had made, and the other one she had found online.  She didn't know what to do so I suggested that we took a little bit of both and come up with a design that had the two things she liked most of both cakes.  She told me she liked the idea and that she trusted that whatever I came up with would be great.  When she came to pick up the cake she absolutely loved it.  I wish I could have taken a picture of her face.  This is what I love about what I do.  Not only does it bring me joy by being able to create these art pieces, but the reaction of a satisfied customer is priceless to me!

Minnie Mouse Cupcake Tower

Ok, This month has been for this character, I have had several orders and it has been variations of this which I have done several times already, So I won't post all of them.  Only this on because it is smaller than what I had done before and it works for a tower.  I also made 80 cupcakes for this order, plus more cupcakes for other clients.  I still have two more orders like this before December is over.  I guess Minnie is really popular right now!  Thanks for looking!

Shark for a "Tiburon" Cake

This cake was so much fun to make!  My friend wanted to surprise her boss with a cake that depicted what they call him at the work place.  My friend was very happy with how the cake turned out and so did her boss!  The flavor was a french vanilla pound cake with vanilla bean buttercream filling and covered in fondant.

Buttercream Butterfly Cake

I made this cake for a baby shower.  The client wanted Leelee's Vanilla specialty flavor with vanilla bean buttercream.  The flowers and butterflies were made of MMF.  Very simple, but cute!  Thanks for looking!
