Harry Potter Birthday!

My oldest son wanted a Harry Potter party for his 9th b-day, so I made this cake with a portion of Hogwart's castle on it, done in the colors of the Harry Potter Legos set....because I'm not a fan of eating black fondant.  : )
The cake was chocolate pound cake with fluffy chocolate butter cream filling.

Mad Science Party

I made this cake for my 7-year old's Mad Science Party!  He asked for vanilla cake and vanilla frosting.  It was covered in marshmallow fondant.

I made this cake for my friend's son, Gabe, who is turning 7!!  I did a buttermilk Devil's food cake filled with sour cream chocolate icing and mini chocolate chips.  It was covered with marshmallow fondant and I made all of the little Legos out of marshmallow fondant, as well.  Happy Birthday Gabe!

Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate Party for Z!

I got to make this fun cake for my friend's son, Zharius's 4th birthday.  He wanted a Jake and the Neverland Pirates themed cake.  The bottom tier was blue vanilla cake and the top tier was buttermilk devil's food cake - both tiers were filled with Bavarian cream. The little figures of Jake, Captain Hook and the crocodile are all toys, but the rest of the decor is made from fondant and/or gum paste.

Navy Blue & Champagne

This is the cake that I made for Jade and John's wedding!  Two of the tiers were white cake with fresh raspberry buttercream, and the other two were carrot cake with caramel buttercream.  I used a combination of real and silk flowers that were available at the reception.

Topsy Turvy Wedding Cake

This was my first topsy turvy cake, which I made for Larke and Luis' wedding!  The flavors were white cake with strawberry filling, chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream, and one tier was made out of rice krispy treats.  All covered in marshmallow fondant, with gumpaste fantasy flowers.
