iPhone 5 Cake

This cake was pretty exciting for me to make since my hubby and I JUST entered into the 21st century and got our first smart phones (iphones)!! I tried to get the dimensions exact on this cake so I measured mine and multiplied it by 4.

Minion Cake

I'm lovin' these little minions lately. After I made this cake, we ended up having a family movie night and I watched Despicable Me2 for the first was too cute! 
This cake is a 3-D cake that I made with several 8"round cakes. It is covered and decorated with fondant. 

Toy Story Cake

I have a lot of fun cakes to post about! The last few months have been pretty busy with lots of fun birthday cakes. Kid's cakes are my favorite. I love how this Toy Story first birthday cake turned out....

I made the cake topper out of gumpaste and the cakes were buttercream with fondant details.

Clay Wedding Cake Topper

I'm so excited to post about this cake topper! I think it is one of my favorites so far, although I do think that Wolf is making a mistake marrying that Ram ;) It is the first one I did that included the "officiant".

Here he is..conducting the ceremony. 

The ring is one of my favorite details! The person ordering the topper asked for the bride to have a diamond ring. I didn't know how to make a diamond out of clay, but found this little jewel in my craft stash. I also have a thing for pearls, since I'm a Meredith girl and all ;) 

I had to ship this one, which always makes me a little nervous! I used a TON of bubble wrap and tissue paper when packing it up.

I hope they have a happy married life together, despite the big rivalry ;)

Beehive Cake

This is a beehive cake I made a few weeks ago and wish I could have actually seen the inside when it was cut. The layers were chocolate and vanilla so the inside also had a "bee" theme. It was covered with butter cream and the little bees were made out of fondant.

Frozen Cake and matching cupcakes

This is quite possibly one of my most favorite cakes I have made recently! I love how it turned out, and even though I haven't seen the movie, it sure was fun to make Olaf. I made all of the snowflakes out of royal icing by piping them onto parchment paper and letting them dry over night. My favorite part of the cake is the snow sprinkles and pearls. It was quite an appropriate cake to make this week since we have had frigid temperatures and a pretty big snow storm for NC :)

Fire Truck cake and cupcakes

I made this sweet little cake and cupcakes for my friend Preethi's little boy. Landon loved watching me make it and especially liked the "baby firetrucks" (he likes to call everything little "baby") on the cupcakes.

Hello Kitty Cake

I made this precious little cake a few weeks ago. Didn't get the best pictures of it, but it turned out super cute and I heard the birthday girl liked it a lot!!

Donald Duck cupcakes

I made this fun cupcakes for Landon's sweet friend, Ezra. Landon and Ezra are only a week apart in age and have been friends since they were only a few months old (guess that isn't very long in the life of a 2 year old) ;)
