I was asked to make a Rapunzel Lantern scene cake. The cake is vanilla cake with Chocolate mousse filling and whip cream frosting. The family purchased the Rapunzel and Flynn Rider figures and boat to put on top. I used blue piping gel to make the water. The flowers are made of gumpaste. Below the boat is the shadow of the castle and the reflection of the laterns in the water.
For my daughter's 3rd birthday we did a Curious George inspired cake. Both of my children LOVE that curious monkey. So I used the largest Pampered Chef glass measuring cup to bake the cake and then made the curious George out of rice crispy treat and covered it with fondant. Simple but cute.
My daughters and I were doing an alphabet lesson. So we make cookies and cut out animal shapes. Then we molded the letter that the animal started with on top. It was a sound does this letter make lesson for my older daughter, and a what is this letter lesson for my younger daughter. The cookies are Peanut Butter.

This cake was made to honor a young man that as earning his Eagle Scout Award. He wanted a lemon cake and lemon curd filling. The icing is vanilla buttercream. The medal on the top of the cake is a replica of the medal he was receiving at the Court of Honor. I fashioned the red/ white/ and blue ribbon out of buttercream icing. The silver parts of the metal were made of fondant that was luster dusted with silver luster dust. I had fun carving the eagle design out of the fondant. Congrats Andrew for such an accomplishment.
The bride, her mother, and I got together and designed this cake based from the Alice in Wonderland themed reception they were having. They really liked the concept of the Hat and teacups. The reception was beautifully decorated, using tea cups a lot. So using a tea cup at the Cake Topper was perfect. So the red rose rose bush was a red velvet cake with white chocolate icing. The black mad hatter hat was carrot cake with cream cheese icing, and the teacup was white cake with vanilla icing. The cake was so much fun and I enjoyed making it. Congrats Abbie and Charles.

The Justin Bieber cake was actually for a 4 year old. I had to change the cake last minute. The cake was a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream icing. The bottom tier was zebra themed with a purple ball border. The top tier was purple fondant topped with a Gumpaste molded Bieber and star burst.

Wilton has created a new Advanced gumpaste flower course, starting this February. It is going to be a real blast. These are the sample cakes I made to display in the store. The first is to showcase the very fun Gerbera Daisy (One of my favorite flowers). The second cake showcases all the other flowers the course covers. Stargazer lily, sweet pea, Stephenatotis, ivy leaves, blossoms, and briar rose. This course shows you how to make the flowers and leaves on wire to create stunning floral sprays. I super excited to start teaching it.
