I was so excited to take this special class from the amazing Susan Carberry. She was visiting from California to Cookie Con. and decided to teach a class. We all learned how to make her two cake designs. I learned more about internal cake structure and using modeling chocolate.

A friend of mine wanted a special birthday surprise for her husband while she was out of town on business. She wasn't sure what kind of cake at first. I suggested an X box cake since he likes video games and then she came back with 'how about a Cars cake?' Wasn't expecting that. Too fun! I love cartoon based cakes for adults!

I like to make my mother in law a cake every year. This is my first time doing a cupcake, I sculpted it all instead of using the cake pans shaped like that. That probably would have been too easy!! You know, give me a challenge! Well knowing how to sculpt a cupcake can be helpful if you are doing a very large cake that they don't make that size of pans for. Once I had the initial pieces carved I added on rolled fondant logs to create the creases in the cupcake liner and for the frosting. Then I added a layer of fondant over all to cover. I enjoy the oversized sprinkles and flower immensely.
