Android Phone Cake

This cake was for my brother in law, Jerry. It almost didn't get made, I was in the middle of moving and nine months pregnant, due in a week! Well I messed up the birthday number on the cake but managed to fix it in my frazzled state of mind. Note to self or whoever else: don't move when you are having a baby in a week! Well, honestly it couldn't be helped.

Pillow and Bassinet Baby Shower Cake

This was my original design I created for my own baby shower. I used a mold to create the tiny baby then dressed her up in headband and diaper. I made the bassinet out of gum paste for the base and ruffles all around. I really wanted to incorporate the pillow shaped pans I have and never get to use. I thought they would be perfect to hold up a squishy baby. I also wanted to incorporate the gradient trend which I have seen so much of recently so I did that on both the bassinet ruffles and the flowers going up the side. Overall I really like the design, I think I would do a wider bottom tier next time to balance out the design more.

Robot Cake

Ok! This robot cake was a lot of work! I realized I would need at least three layers of cake on each tier to make the robot body and head squarish. Modeling the legs and arms and face were probably my favorite part. He is even holding a tiny gear in his hand.
