Spiderman Birthday Cake
I made this cake for the same little one as this cake, which was the first cake I ever made for someone other than family! Happy 4th Birthday, Jude!
American Doll Cake
I made this cake for a little lady turning 5. It was modeled after the latest American Doll. The birthday girl was getting one for her big day. Happy 5th Birthday, Taylor!

Topsy Turvy Vintage Toy Baby Shower Cake
The winner of the Topsy Turvy Cake from my class is:
Finding that winner proved to be a little more challenging than I expected, since no one followed the rules for posting comments! I gave you all the benefit of the doubt though and created an Excel spreadsheet with everyone’s name on it and added multiples of names for becoming Facebook Fans, Twitter Followers or Blog Subscribers. Then I copied and pasted the list into the “randomizer” at Random.org. After putting them in random order, the winner was Kathie Opel.
Kathie chose to bring her cake to her friend’s baby shower. The theme of the shower was “Vintage Toys”. The flags came from the design on her invitations. I’m thrilled with how this cake turned out! The class was very fun…great company! I learned some great techniques for making the Topsy Turvy Cake structurally sound. I will, however, be doing the Topsy Turvy Cake a little differently in the future. The cake will be a 6″ round with a 10″ round on the bottom. It should really even have another tier to get the full effect too! And it will have tapered tiers (larger at the top than at the bottom).
Congratulations to Kathie and to her friend Cara!
“I can’t thank you enough for the gorgeous cake! It was perfect, and delicious as well! Thank you so much!” ~ Kathie

Here are a couple of cakes that didn’t fit into another category! The first was for a baby shower and the second was for Grandparent’s Day. Click on the individual pictures for a description of each one!
From the Gift Box Cake: “Loved it! It looked so realistic that some guests actually thought it was a present.” ~Kay

Baby Shower Cake
This cake was designed after the bedding in the baby’s room. To say that a fondant bow looks easy is true and even watching tutorials, it looks easy to do. Let me tell you folks, I have practiced LOTS and LOTS of fondant bows and they are NOT easy! This bow is the first one I’ve actually been happy with!

This cake is a sample cake for an upcoming project that has the potential to keep me very busy! I love how it turned out, but next time, the big bow will be purple! Those cupcakes are jumbo cupcakes! They are about twice the size of a normal cupcake! I’m actually liking how they came out!
