Mousecaketeer!

Ok… so… that was a terrible attempt at a joke… or something…

Anyhow, Wendy at work asked if I could make her daughter’s birthday cake. She wanted a Minnie Mouse cake and I knew exactly what I wanted to make!

I wanted to put together a sort of deconstructed Minnie cake. That sounds… more morbid than it really is haha.
It was actually really adorable.

For my black fondant this time, I added a bunch of cocoa powder before adding any food color… and guess what?! I was told it was actually edible!!

I even did a tiny little “smash cake” for the birthday girl.

A Nightmare Before Christmas Birthday

You’ll have to excuse the lack of tutorials maybe for a week or two. I’m still trying to piece my life back together.

This is one of the coolest cakes I’ve ever put together. I was super proud of it. My friend’s son was turning 4 (which is INSANE) and wanted a Nightmare Before Christmas theme.
I think I did them proud…

Jacks’ face was hand drawn with edible markers and the skulls were cast in white chocolate! Yum!

Bulldozer Birthday Cake!

I made this awesome bulldozer birthday cake for a little guy named Atreyu’s 2nd birthday. The cake was chocolate filled with cookies and cream buttercream frosting and covered in fondant. I made the wheels out of cookies and all the dirt was cookie and cake crumbs.

Super cute!

Beyblade Arena Cake

I got a call from someone my mother referred to my site. She was wondering if I could make her grandson a cake. She asked if I could make a Beyblade Arena cake. I had literally no idea what that meant or what she was talking about, but I promised to google it and call her. I didn’t know what Yo-Gabba-Gabba was either, but we know I was able to make some cool Yo Gabba cakes!

I googled it and found this thing:

Someone likened it to Crossfire from when I was a kid. I don’t remember if my brother had a Crossfire, but I do totally remember the commercials.

Now, I don’t really think this thing is as awesome looking as Crossfire, but a.)What do I know? and b.)Unless they have an AWESOME commercial like that, I don’t think anything could look as cool as Crossfire.

In any case, all that aside, I decided I would gladly make the cake. I knew I couldn’t make the arena super deep like that because they wouldn’t have any cake to eat! So I made it pretty shallow. I covered the cake with white fondant and then airbrushed the red on. Let me just say HOLY CRAP. That made my life so much easier. Making red fondant is SUCH a hassle and it always wants to turn pink. It takes up a ton of color and then ends up practically inedible and gives it a crap texture. No thank you. Because of that, I’ve been weary of making cakes with large amounts of red, but never again!!

It’s SO RED. So happy about that.

I made a couple little disc things. No idea what their technical term is. I mean… they’re not cars. They’re like… disc things. So yeah. I didn’t stick them onto the cake so the kid could pick them up and move them around and stuff lol.

Yup. So.. that’s Beyblade. Lot’s of red, not quite crossfire, possibly something to do with anime??? Just not sure haha. But I sure made it out of cake.

I’m getting started on a killer wedding cake tonight. I can’t wait to show you guys. This will be the second wedding cake I’ve ever made and it’s for two special people who I adore. So I have to make this cake super adorable just like they are! The colors are white, purple and black. It’s going to be very unique and I can’t wait!

Yo Gabba Gabba Cake

So here’s the cake I was working on the other day all finished up!

The cake was coated in home made buttercream and then covered with home made marshmallow fondant. I created each character by hand with a reference photo and attached them to the side of the cake with a little bit of piping gel. The pink boarder is buttercream.

Some of you who follow my personal blog know that I got my own bakery boxes. I purchased boxes without windows so that I could custom cut windows for each cake and put in my own plastic. I’m still loving these boxes.
