Pleated Buttercream CTR cake

This week our little girl was baptized.  With each of our children's 8th birthdays, their cake has been a CTR cake that we have presented after their baptism. I was a little worried how this one would turn out because I wanted to keep things simple.  I didn't want to do fondant and with time not on my side I needed it to be something I could decorate fairly quickly.  I love how it turned out and I plan to make another cake with the pleated buttercream technique.  

 Mema and Aunti dared her to take a big bite out of it after we sang Happy Birthday.  Silly girl did so!!

This year she chose a WASC cake with Raspberry cream cheese filling. Chocolate cake with cookies and cream filling and frosted in Fluffy American Buttercream.

Lego Birthday Cake

Got a Lego lover in your home?  Here is a super fun cake.  The Lego blocks were made with modeling chocolates poured into Lego molds.  The Lego tiles on the cake were just fondant.  The cake plate was covered in fondant that was pressed by a Lego mat.  

Love this Lego loving kiddo

40th Hawaiian Cake

Happy 40th to my sister. Per request of her husband. He wanted a Hawaiian cake so he could surprise her with a trip to Hawaii. Thanks to my Aunt I got to try my hand at her airbrush machine. It was fun adding the extra depth to the flowers and leaves and creating the bamboo.

Oh and just for the record. Don't put your cakes into a mini refrigerator and turn the temp down. I learned this the hard way and we had a puddle of water on the back side of the cake. Luckily it didn't ruin it from the front and it was just melted ice on the fondant that was taken off anyways on a small portion of the cake. So glad this didn't happen to me with a customer.

Missionary White Shirt Cake

I am about to show my age. After I graduated from high school my first church calling ( assignment) was the teacher of the Sunbeams. This was the 3 year old class in the primary. Well one of my Sunbeams is now getting ready to leave for a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This was the cake I made for his mission farewell open house. Everything on the cake is edible including the missionary tag, The Book of Mormon, and the Called to Serve.

Good Luck Elder Bean

Cake Ball Wedding Cake

This was a fun cake that I just finished making for my nephews wedding reception. Very fun unique cake. Each of those bubbles are actually a cake ball, or known to others as a cake pop. This cake had roughly 15 dozen cake balls on it. It had 8 flavors: chocolate, white sour cream almond, chocolate raspberry, chocolate orange, chocolate mint, strawberry, lemon, and cookies and cream.
It was the perfect cake for this fun couple. 
Originally I had made a bunch of quilled fondant flowers. However it was so warm in the venue that they just wouldn't stay on the cake. I still think that it turned out pretty good.

White and Purple Tiered Cake

We had a talent/variety show at church not to long ago.  I really wanted to make a cake.  There are people who know I make cakes, but for the most part alot of people didn't know.  Here is what I came up with.  Cake covered in fondant and piped in white. Then fondant flowers with purple fondant centers covered in purple sanding sugar.
