Deer Hunter Cake

My customer's son wanted a cake with him in a tree stand. So, here's a cake with a deer hunter sitting in a tree. I later figured out how to do the tree stand, but too late. I'll try it on the next one. He still got what he wanted and was happy. It is white cake with buttercream icing. The tree is chocolate buttercream, and the hunter, border and topper are out of fondant.

Stump Cake

This cake was for a lady's husband who owns a tree service. It was a cake pictured on the Publix website. It had toy chainsaws on it, but I could not find anything like that. Since this was a rushed order, I did not have time to make them out of fondant. The stump is made from a jumbo cupcake turned upside down. It is marble cake with fresh sliced strawberries and buttercream for the filling.

Woodworking Cake

So, August 4th is my husband's birthday and he is a fantastic woodworker. He makes everything from hand-turned pens, cutting boards, birdhouses, children's toys, and more. This cake is to celebrate his birthday as well as his great talent. In celebrating his talents, I short-cut mine! Normally I would have made the tools out of fondant and gum paste, but time did not allow this and the fantastic "Dollar Tree" was too hard to pass up! So I airbrushed the cake to look a little like wood and placed the tools on top. There is a planer, a saw, and a screw driver. Phillips head, not flat head, because flat head screws bring out the worst language in my husband! Happy Birthday Josh, I love you!

Finally....more cake pics!!!

I finally went to Walmart and got the pictures off of my phone on to a CD! It took all of 30 minutes to do, not sure what made me put it off. The next 11 posts are of those cakes in which some are over 2 years old!! Enjoy, and thanks for your patience!!

Butterflies and Flowers cake

Here's a sweet 2-tier cake decorated with fondant butterflies and flowers. I LOVE this cake. It's just so pretty for a little girl. The same idea can be applied for boys as well with dinosaurs, sports, trains, or cars and trucks for the theme.

Batman Cupcake Cake

Batman cupcake cake made with marble cupcakes.

Frog pond baby shower cake

This cake didn't quite turn out like I wanted it too. The colors weren't right, and I didn't like the frog. But a cute cake still.

Lime green and black topsy turvy cake

Well, it's not the best picture with my phone, but it was a really cute cake I made for a co-worker's teenage daughter.

Mario Cupcake Cake

So, it's sideways...but you get the idea.

English Rose Garden Wedding Cake

I made 945 individual roses, flowers, and petals for this 3-tier wedding cake this July. The cake was yellow with buttercream icing. The roses were made a few days in advance out of royal icing, and arranged on the cake later. I actually had Josh cut down the pillars after this picture was made, so the tiers weren't so far apart and wiggly. I loved making this cake, it has to be one of my favorites. My phone didn't do the colors justice, they were so much more vibrant than the picture shows.

Patriotic Corn Cob Cake

This cake won Grand Prize in Sewanee's 4th of July Cake Contest in 2008. I won 1st in Theme, Presentation, and Grand Prize overall.
