First Birthday Cake!

Sunday, March 1st, 2009
Hi there!  This is the latest cake I’ve done for a little one… a first birthday.  My friend Rebecca asked me to do a cake for her friend’s little one with a pink/black soccer ball and a little pink elephant.  See the result below!  The soccer ball is actually all cake covered with fondant, and totally edible.  The bottom is chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting, covered in green vanilla fondant.  I also covered the cake board in green fondant and used some pink accent ribbon to tie it all together.  The final touch is the pink fondant elephant representing the little one’s favorite toy.

Baby Shower - Planes & Elephants!

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

This was a really exciting project for me… A friend of mine asked me to do two cakes for a friend’s baby shower… each with a unique theme.  Cake #1 was to be airplane-inspired to honor the pilots in the celebrant’s family (chocolate cake with dark chocolate buttercream & vanilla fondant).   Cake #2 was to reflect the shower invitation with little baby feet and a sentimental baby elephant (white cake with vanilla buttercream & vanilla fondant).  All of the figures are hand-made/hand-painted fondant!
