Family Reunion Birthday Cake

Our family reunion happened to land on one of my uncle's birthday and was very close to my father's birthday. To celebrate/honor them, I created this birthday cake for them. The cake is the "Lemon Almond Awesome Cake" with buttercream and raspberry filling. The decorations are buttercream and the flowers are fondant. My mother did the flowers, too! Thanks Mom!

Ball and Chain

We found out that one of our managers at work had basically missed his birthday, due to a very demanding project. So, I made him a ball and chain birthday cake. The project's database is on top of the cake "attached" to the ball and chain. We felt it was appropriate!! The cake is the "Lemon Almond Awesome Cake" with buttercream frosting covered in dark chocolate fondant. All of the decorations are fondant.

Beach Cake

This is a two tiered chocolate cake I made for a friend's relative. The cake is decorated with buttercream frosting and then covered in fondant. The margarita glass and flip flops are gumpaste and the "salt" is sugar. The "sand" is brown sugar and the shells are made of chocolate. The "waves" and fish are buttercream frosting decorated with a brush. One side of the cake is to celebrate her birthday and the other side to celebrate her anniversary.

Hydrangea Cupcakes

Here are some Hydrangea cupcakes I made for my OB's office because they are sooooo awesome! Everything is buttercream frosting.

Butterfly Cupcakes

Here are some butterfly cupcakes I made for my cousins daughter's birthday. The butterflies and flowers are made of fondant and are sitting on top of buttercream frosting.
