I did this for a two year old. His favourite book is Where the Wild Things Are. It was a fun cake with very different colours. The bottom cake is the sea that Max crossed. The mother was going to put a laminated picture of Max in his boat on it.
I did this cake for my sister-in-law. She had a very Victorian wedding dress, and I tried to reflect the romance of the era with ivy and roses that started out ivory and turned peach at the tops. The trellises attaching the cakes are made out of royal icing.

I did these cakes for our Service Unit's bridging ceremony. I started with the Daisy petals, bridged to the Brownie Try-Its, bridged to the Junior badges, then bridged to the Cadette and older IPs. I really like creating things with royal frosting.
In my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group, we had a meeting on childrens' party ideas. Our group had boy/girl party and decided to use a farm theme. The barn and haystacks are cake. I was going to toast coconut and use that on the ground, but a family emergency happened and my brain wasn't totally with the cake after that.
