Unicorn Craze

We had a baby shower for one of my friends at church.  The theme for the shower was unicorns.  So, they wanted me to make one of the unicorn cakes that is so popular right now.

Here is my take on the unicorn cake in the colors of the shower.

The ears and horn are made from marshmallow fondant.  The horn is fondant that was spiraled around a kebob stick.
The cake was a strawberry cake with buttercream icing.
Hope you like it.

80s Vibe

Sorry about being non-existent for a while.

Hope you enjoy this cake.  It was for my son's 8th birthday.  He was into all the old games after watching Pixels.  So, I made him a Old School game cake.

For this cake a made two square chocolate cakes with chocolate frosting.

I then covered it in Marshmallow Fondant.

Each side of the cake featured a different game.

There was Pac-Man.
There was Asteroids.
And there was Centapede.
The front of the cake had Happy Birthday in Pac-Man font.
Each character on the top of the cake is made completely out of Fondant.

Hope you enjoyed a little bit of nostalgia.

One for the Books

I have done several cakes based on books that the birthday boy/girl have liked.

One of those cakes was based off the Warriors series on cat clans.  It was for my niece.  I can't remember the flavor of this particular cake, but it was covered in marshmallow fondant and colored with food gel to recreate the book cover.  My niece loved it, so that's what matters.

Another one that I did was for my son who was all into the Percy Jackson book series at the time.

This is a round blue velvet cake decorated with crusting buttercream to represent the three head Gods, Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon.

Hope you liked them.  Come back for more later.

This force is strong with this one

For a sister/brother birthday party, the mother wanted cakes that were Star Wars themed.

She got her inspiration on pinterest.

I made a girly Darth Vader cake that was pink buttercream with a black and white Vader.  I printed out a Vader and used it to make an outline on my cake.  I then filled it in and smoothed it out with the Viva smoothing method.  The inside was a homemade sprinkle cake.

I made a Boba Fett cake using blue buttercream.  I then used an image from online and my pattern.  I filled in my pattern with green, red, and black icing.  The inside was a homemade buttermilk sprinkle cake.

Don't Let the Muggle get you Down

For my daughter's birthday, I planned a Harry Potter birthday complete with wands and Bert's Ever Flavored bean.

The girls had fun, and the cake was a hit.

The cake was chocolate with chocolate buttercream.  I shaped it like a spell book and covered it in fondant.

I made a rice krispy owl and covered it in fondant.  The birthday girl helped me on the face.

Superhero Sweets

I have done several superhero cakes in the last year.

The first one is a Superman baby onesie for sweet baby Finn.  It was white cake with my crusting buttercream.  To get the emblem just right, I printed out a copy and traced it onto the cake.

The second one was for sweet Sophia's birthday.  It was a Spiderman cake made from white cake and my crusting buttercream.  I traced an image of Spidey on the cake and filled it in.

I put a certificate in the silent auction at the scout Blue and Gold banquet, and the recipient wanted a Punisher/Deadpool cake.  This was a white cake with my crusting buttercream.  I traced the image on the cake and filled it in like the other two cakes.


For another Blue and Gold silent auction winner, I made a Flash cake.  This one was chocolate with my crusting buttercream icing.

Hope you enjoyed all the Superhero Sweets from today.

Slither'n Snake

I know, I know.  It's been way too long.  Thought I would post a cake from last year.  I definitely need to play catch up.

For my Dad's birthday a couple of years ago I decided to make a copperhead.  The reason I did this is because we went camping that summer, and I almost stepped on a copperhead.  My Dad ended up killing it.

I made the cake using 2 round yellow cakes.  I iced the cake and then covered it in fondant.  I airbrushed the cake a light orange color and used thinned food color gel to color on the stripes.

The head is made from Rice Krispy treats.

Hope you enjoy my skin crawling snake.
