This Little Piggy Turned 9

This cake was for a 9 year-old's birthday. He's covered in fondant with gum paste ears. The mud is buttercream frosting. A big thank you to my husband for the design idea and the carving.

Pickles and Ice Cream

This was for a baby shower. The cake is hand-painted fondant. The cherries are fondant with gum paste stems.

I had no idea on how to do the ice cream. I happened to Tivo a Food Network Challenge that featured food stylists and one of their challenges was to make a banana split. It turns out that fake ice cream is just a modified stiff frosting. I love how it turned out!

Elegant Wedding Shower

This was a buttercream cake for a wedding shower. The circles are fondant painted with silver pearl dust.

Butterflies and Ivy

Once again my camera is acting up and giving everything a yellow tinge.

This cake was for a first birthday party. I love the non-traditional choices of this client. The cake is buttercream with royal icing morning glories and butterflies. I hand painted the butterflies.

This cake is a white cake with lemon filling and 7 minute frosting. I did royal icing carnations in 3 shades of pink. I don't think I've done carnations since my cake class 15 years ago. I love their look!
