Chococlate Crunch Bar overload!

This was a very fun cake to make!
I started with two rich chocolate 1/4 sheet cakes and filled them with chocolate buttercream whipped full of smashed up crunch bars! Then I coated the cake with more chocolate buttercream.
First I put a strip of grey fondant on one end, folded the edges in for the wrapped and brushed it with sparkley silver food coloring. Next I cut out the C and the R from thick chocolate fondant and placed it on the cake. Next, I placed a layer of chocolate fondant over that and smoothed it over the letters to give it the embossed look.
Next I added the blue strip for the wrapper and cut out white fondant for the logo. I had piped the rest of the letters onto the wrapper.
I was pretty darn excited with how it turned out!

Adorable Baby Shower Happy Cloud Cake

I used a cool recipe for the icing that I’ve not used before… it’s called cloud icing, so I found that fitting.
Ingredients

1 3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
4 egg whites, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

In a saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil. Boil for 3-4 minutes or until a candy thermometer reads 242 degrees F (firm-ball stage). Meanwhile, beat egg whites and cream of tartar in a mixing bowl until foamy. Slowly pour in hot sugar mixture; continue to beat on high for 7 minutes or until stiff peaks form. Add vanilla. Continue beating until frosting reaches desired consistency, about 2 minutes.

I added an extra tsp of vanilla just to give it a little more body. It turned out great! Yum!

Show Jane Some Support… She’s 50!

I wish I could take credit for this clever cake idea, but this is what my friend Jane requested haha.

She wanted something funny and cute for her 50th birthday and this was just the thing.

I hand made the bra by piecing together fondant…

I tried to be as detailed as possible, adding lace and stitching and other little details here and there like the lacing.

I must say, it all came together nicely!

Hilariously, in the end, I had to fill the bra cups with icing so they could stand on their own, as I didn’t have time to dry the piece for several days haha!
