Princess Castle Cake

This is a two tier castle cake I made for a little girl's birthday. 
 The bottom tier is the Lemon Almond Awesome Cake (Pound Cake) and the top tier is a marble cake. 
Both have a raspberry buttercream filling and are covered in buttercream. 
The towers and turets are part of the Wilton Castle Cake kit that I decorated with buttercream, royal icing, and silver sprinkles. 
The flowers were made with royal icing and the "stones" are fondant.

Roopa's Birthday Cake

My friend Roopa recently celebrated a birthday.  Not only did I actually wear a skirt to work (first time in 6.5yrs!), but I also baked her a cake!  It's a double 9" layer spice cake with buttercream frosting.  The cake was covered in a deep red fondant.  The roses are yellow fondant and the rest of the decorations were piped buttercream.

Bike Cake

My friend and her husband LOVE to bike, so when his birthday came around I made him a cake! 
The cake is a double 9" layer dark chocolate fudge with a coconut filling. 
It is covered in chocolate ganache and then decorated with fondant.  The bikes were hand painted on the fondant.

Superhero Birthday Cake

This is a superhero birthday cake I made for my son's 4th birthday.
The cake is a two tier cake--the bottom tier is chocolate with chocolate fudge filling and the top tier is a marble cake with chocolate fudge filling. Both tiers are covered in buttercream and fondant.
The "superheroes" were modelled after the birthday invitation and are painted on gumpaste.

The superhero logos and "city" is also painted gumpaste.

He really wanted to make sure that all of his superheroes were covered, so we have Ironman, Batman, Spiderman, and Superman "logos" on the cake.

We also had a #4 sparkler for when everyone sang Happy Birthday to him.
