Cake ball cake, Boy castle cake

Birthday cake for one of my biggest cake ball fans.

Cake for one of my good friends' son

The Princess and The Frog cake

Here is Raymond, or Ray. Who turned out stinkin' cute!!!!

Tiana and the Prince Naveen, in frog form (after my Cher Snow White, I wasn't about to do another "human" character. More practice before that happens!!)

Good ol' Louis playing his music (the trumpet is added later)

Putting everything together.

The finished product. I was going to do more to this cake, but, we live in a small town that only has one store (wal-mart) that carries cake supplies. And well, go figure, they were out of fondant. ) Imagine more swamp details on the edge of the cake, like reeds, or cat tails, other random greenery. Still turned out, but could have been better......

Louis, Tiana, and Prince Naveen floating down the Bayou, with Ray lighting the way.

Princess Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs

First thing I did was shape the faces. They look like nothing more then a row of noses, very nice!!

I did them all in stages, so this is obviously a bit farther along. At this point I was a giddy with joy. They were turning out soooo cute!

The rest of the crew. Still awaiting very important body parts. Arms, hands, beards, eyes...still a ways to go.


And it's finished!!! Yea!!!! And it's cute!!!! And the birthday girl (Sadie) LOVES it!!!!! Yea!!!!!

(Have to admit, Snow White looks a little more like Cher then Snow White. I will have to work on the facial details a little bit more!)

Blue lily wedding cake

This cake turned out better then I had imagined. The flowers are homemade, and it was my first time making them. I was worried about how they would turn out. However, I surprised myself. They turned out much better then I had expected. I was ready to run to the first Michael's or Robert's store I came across to get fake ones. With how much time I spent making the flowers, I am glad I was able to use them.

Kamryn's cake

My nephew loves to wake surf. So, I thought it would be appropriate to do a cake with him wake surfing. I used photos of their actual boat, and got it pretty close. I included everyone in the family, which was really fun to do. And Kamryn loved that he had his own "action figure".


Here are some extra things that I can also do. It's not as fun as making a cake, but I can still do them.
Here are some cute cupcakes that I did for a Young Women's activity.

Here are some cake balls, and cheesecake balls. Easy to do, but time consuming, but DELICIOUS!!!! We love these. especially the cheesecake balls. Mmmmmmmmm

Brynli's 6th birthday

She was pretty excited about this cake. I let her sit with me and pick it out. She loved the style of the number on the cake. But it had the number 16 on it. She was devastated. I told her we could change that, all was good again.
I didn't realize when I was taking the picture, that I had the back side of the cake. Thus, the 6 is backwards.

On a "Roll" now.

I made this for a friend of mine, who was turning 60. This was a fun cake to make and more fun to deliver. The reaction from the family that was there at the party, was fantastic!! I love making cakes!

Matthew's tractor cake

I had two cakes to make this particular weekend. I wasn't able to put in as much detail as I wanted. But I think it still looks pretty cute. And my little Matthew LOVED it.
In the second picture you can see that the tractor is pushing another cake. It happened to my birthday that weekend as well. My dear sweet husband, all by himself, made that cake. The bottom layer has a chocolate fondant, made from scratch, made from my husband. What a man!! He did an awesome job.

Ben's cake

My sister called asking if I could do a cake for one of her awards night for the scouts. It was to go along with the million dollar prize. So, instead of doing a simple dollar sign, we did a pot of gold. They ended up not being able to use the cake, but my nephew's birthday was that same weekend, it then became a cake for Ben. The first time I've been able to decorate a cake for the Rust family. Hope they enjoyed it!
