Whimsical Flower Cake

I made this cake with some leftover batter and frosting.  It was such a cute design, one I had been hoping to try out.  I used fondant and gum paste to make these whimsical and colourful flowers and then placed them on the top of this cake frosted in Swiss Meringue Buttercream. I dropped it off to a dear friend's house, where the kids playing outside followed the cake to the front door like a parade! The cake was sliced up and eaten quickly!

Ballerina Slipper Cake

Little Sydney is turning 6 and her friends will be joining her at her dance school to help her celebrate! Her mom wanted an extra special dance-themed cake to make the day complete.  I handmade these adorable ballerina slippers made of gumpaste and fondant and made matching flowers to decorate the rest of the cake.  I placed the cake on this (rentable) cakestand that I embellished with an all-pink tutu. I think Sydney will be thrilled!

Carrot Cake

This super delicious cake, Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, was made for a young soul turning 82. The carrots were made of fondant and brushed with a little cocoa "dirt" to give them that fresh picked look, without the fresh picked taste! Mmm!
