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 to be saved a part of the breast of the cake.
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.
My son loves Godzilla and any monster of the sort. So of course we needed a Godzilla cake. I decided that the Golden Gate Bridge would be fun to make and just add all sorts of toy figures to go along with it. The gate is made of graham crackers and covered with red fondant along with red vines candy for the cables of the bridge.
This cake was all about bikes. My friend turning 40 is a cat 2 road racing mad man. He lives and breathes biking. So of course when his wife asked me to make a cake for him it had to be about bikes. I didn’t think I had it in me to construct a nice looking bicycle, so that is a miniature bike that spins and brakes on the side. The rest of the design I took ideas from his teams jersey, the flame is part of their logo. Of course he’s a beer lover so I added the bottle opener. The remainder of gears are just from fondant made the day before and dried so they could stand up at the top.
