Manicka, Hurvinek & Zeryk Cake

These handmade edible figurines named Manicka, Hurvinek & Zeryk and from a beloved puppet show from the Czech Republic on a "We will miss you" farewell cake. Red Velvet with Cream Cheese frosting. I decided to try out a wood stump look since the design was up to me. I like the way it turned out but my favorite part is still the figurines. I was told the couple decided to keep them hopefully their dog doesn't get to them. Ha ha!

Roller Coaster Cake

I made this coaster cake for a roller coaster fanatic. It did take me some brainstorming to figure out how to do this one. The base is two layers of cake and then I molded curved pieces out of rice krispy treats, covered them in chocolate to smooth out and then in fondant. The most time consuming part was the bars on the coaster, making them and applying them. The cake is lemon with buttercream frosting.

Teacher Retirement Cake

I love this cute and simple teacher retirement cake. I hand sculpted the little apple and crayons, and music notes. The base is all buttercream which can definitely be a challenge to smooth perfectly but I love the mix of piped details and the fondant accents. The cake is carrot cake.

Pancake Breakfast Gravity Defying Cake

So I like to have a little fun every year to pick the cake design I want to celebrate my husband's birthday. There seems to be a running theme of food made of cake - i.e. sushi cake, a enchilada cake, (batman not so food) and this year with a pancake cake. He really loves making me pancakes in the morning, he used to put in strange concoctions like crystal lite, cocoa powder or orange juice. I didn't care for that much, this time it was time for me to make the pancakes for him! Nothing too strange here though - real maple cake with caramel buttercream.
