Oh my……I’ve been wanting to make this cake for awhile – and finally, I had a reason to!!!! Very time consuming, and my back hurt for a bit from working on the cake, lol – but definitely worth the end result. I loved making the colours, and it was a lot of fun overall problem solving certain aspects of creating this cake. ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope I get to make this one again at some point…..minecraft1 minecraft2 minecraft3

One of my best girlfriends, Christine, just celebrated her 35th birthday…… and the only request she gave me was that she wanted “Too sexy to be 35″ on the cake. ย But it was a 6”, and unfortunately was not able to fit all that on the top of the cake, AND have candles. Boo-urns.

I love the hearts and arrows confetti though – and was really quite excited to discover I could make candy melts a part of the cake decorating process….

I am DEFINITELY going to have to try this again at some point. ๐Ÿ˜€IMG_20150124_160231 IMG_20150124_160300 IMG_20150124_16034535one35two

blue n purple45one45twoIt was my friend Marilyn’s 45th birthday. And I made her carrot cake with vanilla frosting……Her request: A blue and purple cake with a big “45” on the top. I suppose I could have added some writing, but I really like the simplicity of the design…..

It was my first time trying the diamond design with the squiggly lines – all in all it turned out to look amazing!! I truly had a lot of fun making this one. ๐Ÿ˜€

Second image transfer I had attempted. Much more complicated, if only for the fact that I had to make SO many colours to fill the image. AND my first attempt at making black icing, which worked out very well, Thank God………
This was for my friend’s daughters’ 4th birthday. I was later shown pictures of the party – the cake fit right in. ๐Ÿ˜€Minnie 1 Minnie 2 Minnie 3 Minnie 4 Minnie 5

These gum paste flowers I had actually made in the second cake decorating class I had taken. These are phenomenally beautiful, but VERY time-consuming. Very much like playing with play dough. But more colorful, lol.gum paste flowers

My very first cake order ever! It was for the client’s wife’s birthday – and I stayed up with Rob till 2 am finishing the thing (it didn’t really help that I was still learning to ice a cake at that point, lol) But the result was amazing – I swear by YouTube tutorials for anything you’d like to learn (assuming you’re a visual learner)2 Tier 2 2 Tier one

Technically, this IS a blue velvet cake – unfortunately for me, I neglected to take ANY pictures of the cake after having been cut, lol. I made this for my friend Lee’s birthday, and she graciously decided to allow me to have complete control over the design of the cake (never mind the fact that I had still asked her about a million questions ANYWAY about her preferences, lol)

I’m still VERY happy with the result…… Turned out better than I had imagined. ๐Ÿ˜€Blue Velvet 1 Blue Velvet 2 Blue Velvet 3 Blue Velvet 4

This was my first attempt at a flower pot cake. Unfortunately I hadn’t cut the fondant tall enough, but the ‘grass’ around the edge made up for the height difference. I hope to do this one again soon….defintely I’ll be properly measuring the fondant next time around, lol.Flower Pot Cake

I had made this for my husband’s work Christmas party about a year ago. My first attempt at an image transfer – It worked out wonderfully, much to my delight. Image Transfers do take a lot of work, patience and planning, but are easily turning into my favourite method of cake decorating. ๐Ÿ˜€Execulink Cake

The very FIRST cake I ever made and decorated. The icing was a little crumby, but understandably so given that I had only just left DQ, and was unaccustomed to icing a real cake. (All I ever had to worry about with DQ cakesย were the decorations)

The wording on the cake was my husband’s idea, lol.
Teh Awesome Cake
