Booty cake

Posted by Marilyn at 1:30 PM 1 comments









This is one I'd been wanting to make for awhile. I finally got to make to make it for my brother in law's 40th birthday.I was inspired by members on Cake Central to make it. I didn't think it would turn out as well as it did, I'm actually pleased with the result. You can't really see the belt but it does read "Happy 40th" in sugar pearls. I don't have templates but I did cut it all out freehand, I just think it's easier. Well, glad I was able to make and post it, if I get to make another I will post a tutorial on how to make it. Thanks for looking.

Wedding cake

Posted by Marilyn at 11:17 PM 0 comments


Here's the wedding cake I promised I would post when done, unfortunately the picture is not the best, as I did not take my Nikon with me. Three tier top tier was red velvet with cream cheese filling, middle tier was chocolate cake with Bailey's Irish Cream filling and bottom tier was lemon cake with raspberry mousse. Mmmm .......very tasty and moist cakes, all iced in butter cream and decorated with fresh flowers. I hope and am pretty sure bride has better pictures. Anyhow the cupcake tower I also promised was a disaster just thinking about it makes me want to cry. If I can get a picture I will post details, thanks for looking.

60th Birthday Cake

Posted by Marilyn at 9:24 PM 0 comments


This is the 60th birthday cake I made for a friend's grandmother who just got in from out of the country. Cake was vanilla with strawberries and cream, covered in fondant. Also my first attempt at a gum paste rose, and I must say it wasn't as hard as I thought. I had fun doing them and I love the gum paste I bought from, CK Products, it's the best, very pliable and easy to use. Too bad I didn't get much from them, next order I will go all gum paste. Anyhow,I have more coming up this weekend, looks like a wedding cake and a butterfly/daisy cupcake tower as well. Keep posted for more pictures, thanks again!

Dinsey Princess cupcakes

Posted by Marilyn at 5:57 PM 0 comments


Another cupcake order, but these were just simple princess cupcakes nothing fancy. I didn't get a picture of the pink ones but each princess color coordinated with the whipped cream topping. I had already forgotten all the princesses I've been in la-la land, I thought it was Ariel, Cinderella, Snow White and Jasmin, but looks like there are more. As for flavors they were chocolate and vanilla and this time no butter cream instead whipped cream (my favorite). Tomorrow I will be posting another 60th birthday cake with gum paste roses that I made for the first time. Well, tomorrow you be the judge of that.

Hello Kitty

Posted by Marilyn at 10:13 AM 0 comments


I've always wanted to try a, Hello Kitty, cake and was finally able too. It was a surprise cake for my daughters best friend at school. It was easy to carve out but not as easy to apply icing. The frosting was butter cream and I usually always use the same recipe but this one erked me. Anyhow this was a very small cake 6", bow was made from fondant and so were the eyes, whiskers and nose. My next Hello Kitty has to be a 3D one, that would be real cute. Well keep posted this weekend I have cupcakes and a 60th birthday cake too.
