Any Mavs fans out there? This is a 6 inch cake shaped into a hat and covered with fondant. I went to a local store that prints edible images and had them print out the picture for me. I cut out the image off the “paper” and attached it to more fondant to keep it flat.
I made another baby shower cake but this time I got to try my hand at making a baby shoe as the topper. The shoe is made entirely out of fondant. This was so fun and it turned out cute.
My little minion turned 5 and we of course threw a minion party. So we went with Bob who has 2 eyes and no hair. I had done the grey/silver goggles a few days ahead of time so that they would harden, but ended up making a new set and placing them on while they were soft instead. I painted on a little luster powder to give the goggles a bit of shine too. Last but not least, what do minions love so much? BANANAS!! Had to make a little mini one for the cake topper. So much fun and my minion loved it.
My first baby shower cake, but this was no ordinary cake. Originally the person wanted one of those kind of low brow shocker types of cakes with the baby coming out of the vagina. She was open to suggestion and I was able to steer her away from that and go with the baby bump type of cake with a special feature. Inside below the belly area I placed a small baby in which I suggested she cut a slit and then pull the baby out, I also added some red Twizzler bites so that upon pulling out the baby, bits of red stuff came tumbling out of said slit. I wish I had a photo of the baby being pulled out, but I heard that it did create the shock effect that she wanted. It was also mentioned that the daddy requested a part of the cake be saved for him, the breast.
Spring time and it’s time to boil up those little crawfish! My friend was having her son’s first birthday celebration, the kind where the grown ups are really having all the fun. She did a crawfish boil and wanted an aquatic them, so I went with creating an under the sea type of creation (even though I know those critters are not from the ocean, no need to get technical). I made some chocolate crawfish molded lollipops for the kids, a few of them for the top of the cake and some shells and seaweed for the main cake and the smash cake.
My daughter wanted a Disney Frozen themed cake. I wanted to change it up a bit since the last Frozen cake that I made. I love the snowflake plunger to punch out the snowflakes, they are made from fondant and I just set out a day or two to dry. The crown is also made from fondant, I used a pattern I found online and wrapped it around a wine bottle to dry. I also embellished it with some pearl candies.
A friend wanted a 21st birthday cake with the New York Skyline and lots of glitz and glam. I definitely wanted to include a martini glass and the girl who asked for it wanted a bow and sunglasses. All of the detail work is made from fondant.
