Jungle Birthday Cake!

I was so excited to do this cake. I made all of these little animals, flowers and the tree out of fondant and let them dry before transporting them to my sister's house, 8 hours away, to make a birthday cake for my niece and nephew, who chose a jungle cake for their birthday. The cake was buttermilk devil's food cake, frosted in buttercream. This was a fun cake to make, especially the animals! My niece helped me place the flowers for the finishing touch! Happy Birthday Avery and Brayden!!

Cake for a 50th Birthday Party

A friend of mine from church asked me to make this cake for her mom's 50th birthday party! The cake was alternating layers of vanilla and chocolate, filled and frosted in chocolate butter cream and covered in fondant. The scroll work was done in royal icing. The "L" monogram on the top of the cake is meant to stand up, but because she is flying with the cake, it has to lie down until she reaches her destination. : )

Pumpkin Cake

For Enrichment night at church, we all brought some fun fall foods to share, and I made this pumpkin cake. Naturally, the flavor of the cake was pumpkin, filled and frosted with vanilla butter cream, and covered in marshmallow fondant. The little pumpkins are all marshmallow fondant.
