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.

Spider-man Cake Pops

I have found a new love for cake pops.  Let me just tell you how absolutely fun they are.  I recently had a friend ask me if I would make her 18 Spider-man cake pops for her son's 5th birthday and here are the results.  They are larger than most cake pops. They take about 3 or 4 bites to eat them.  Hopefully in the future I can add a tutorial to my page. However, there are some great tutorials out there.

Fondant Olaf from Frozen

My little niece just turned 3 and of course she had to have Frozen as her theme.  I loved the way my Sister in Law incorporated Frozen into a summer birthday.  She knows how terrible busy I get in June with my kids birthday cakes and the end of the school year so she asked a family friend to make the cake.  It was half beach and ocean and have frozen ice. She did however ask me to make an Olaf.  How cute is he?

"A drink in my hand, my snow up against the burning sand. 
 Probably getting gorgeously tanned in summer!"

As I type this up the kids are singing the summer song.  I love how much they love the song and know all the words and will just blurt them out whenever.

Baseball Stadium Cake

Happy 10th Birthday to My Lil' E. I can't believe he is at double digits.  This young man LOVES all things sports so it didn't surprise me that he wanted a baseball stadium for his cake.  It was a HUGE cake.  All covered in buttercream.  The bleachers are rice krispy treats covered in fondant and then I placed mini m&ms m side down for the fans.  The "dirt" for the infield was crushed graham cracker crumbs and I used a grass tip for the field grass.

Dainty Flowers and Boots Cake

I have been dying to try this embroidery technique.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out.  So dainty.  Don't you think it would be gorgeous on a white wedding cake with white embroidery?  I do. Any takers?  The boots were sculpted out of fondant.  So super cute.  I think it turned out perfectly for Dimples' 2nd Birthday.  She loves her shoes and boots.

Angry Birds Cake

I have no idea why my 8 year old REALLY wanted an Angry Birds cake for his birthday.  Funny thing is we don't even play it.  I know that it is pretty popular among his friends at school though.  Each Angry Bird was made of fondant.  The cake was covered in fondant as well.
