Wedding Dress Cake

I made this cake for my mom's co-worker Michelle.  Everyone at my mom's work had a bridal shower luncheon for Michelle, and my mom was responsible for bringing the cake. So what does she do? She asks me to make one, and honestly, it was a lot of fun :)

Everything is edible, even the dress, which is made of cake and fondant. The roses and rose petals are made of fondant as well and brushed with luster dust (edible glitter).

I think my favorite part was the bouquet of roses because of how hard it was to make it. It's no more than 1 inch in diameter with about 16 tiny roses.

Oh, and putting the sugar pearls on was pretty meticulous as well.

Actually, my most favorite part was coming back from class and seeing this...
I'm glad it tasted as good as it looked :)

Congratulations, Michelle! 
I hope you and Tim have a blessed marriage!

Teddiursa Graduation Cake

My cousin graduated from high school last week, and for his graduation party, I made him a cake of the Pokemon Teddiursa, who is one of his favorites. The open book says "Congrats JV! Class of 2010."  Teddiursa's head, ears, arms, feet, and tail are made of Rice Krispies treats, and everything else is cake. I think my cousin really liked his cake because after decapitating Teddiursa and eating the ears, my cousin carried the head around all night.

He took lots of pictures with it...

Proposed with it...

Played hot potato with it...

And he even got everyone to dance with it! 

I understand this sounds a little weird, but honestly, it was the most fun I ever had playing with cake. You should try it sometime ;)

Congrats, Cousin, and good luck in college!
Love you!

Pink Birthday Cake

It feels good to be back :) I've been so busy this past month that I've barely had time to even breathe!  Well, maybe not that busy, but you understand what I mean.  I recently started my MCAT classes and things have been tough, so blog posts between now until I take the MCAT (probably March 2011) will be sporadic, and sometimes rare.  Yes, I understand that's probably not the best way to keep your interest in my blog, but "Professional Cake Decorator" comes second on my to-do list.  First things first!

I made this cake for Deborah's 20th birthday. She's a wonderful person and an amazing friend, so this is my way of saying "Hey, I think you're awesome."  The cake is Funfetti with strawberry jam filling and cream cheese icing.

And finally, the obligatory "cutting the cake" picture:

Fondant tends to darken over time, hence the darker pink color. 
Just a little FYI, in case you freaked out about the color change :)

Happy Birthday, Deborah!
