Modern Polka Dot Cake and Cake Pops for a 1st Birthday. Made to match birthday invites and his brother's 1st birthday cake as well. This is a vanilla cake with raspberry cream filling and fluffy buttercream frosting. Marshmallow fondant accents. The cake pops are made of dark chocolate cake and fluffy buttercream frosting.
First of all, sorry for all the pictures. I just loved how this cake turned out and I could not help myself. This is our daughter's 4th birthday cake. Her and I have been talking about it for almost a year. Not sure who was looking forward to it more, her or I! This is the first time I ever had a support system like this built. Thankful for my hubby who built it for me. This is a dark chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling and diced fresh strawberries and a whipped chocolate ganache frosting, covered in marshmallow fondant. Only the base of the structure is cake. The tower itself is all rice krispie treats covered in royal icing and marshmallow fondant. Flynn Ryder is fake. Because I spent so much time on the cake, I decided to actually put a plastic toy on a cake. Something I NEVER DO . . . but my daughter got to keep it and now she can have Rapunzel and Flynn Ryder kiss all she wants ;-)
A US Army Recognition/Thank You cake for my cousin who was home in the states for a couple weeks from Afghanistan. This is a dark chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling and fluffy buttercream frosting, with a yummy chocolate ganache drizzle. The emblem is made of marshmallow fondant.
A very simple cake for my husband on his birthday. Nothing too special about it other than I made it for my love. It's plain jane. And that is what he wanted. It's a dark chocolate cake with fluffy buttercream frosting and filling. No fondant whatsoever ;-)
A Monster 1st Birthday Cake. This is a dark chocolate cake with peanut butter mousse filling and chopped up Reeses peanut butter cups. Fluffy buttercream frosting. Marshmallow fondant accents. This cake was made to match the invite/party supplies.
Another family birthday cake. This is a pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting and filling. The flower are made of marshmallow fondant.
