Ice Fishing Cake

This is my first (human) figure. Yellow cake with whipped ganache filling and iced in buttercream. I think it would have looked a lot better, but I used Wilton's white-white to brighten up the buttercream and it changed the consistency. Figure and misc item made from modeling chocolate. I'm happy with my guy. I LOVE my fish, though!!

Toy Story Cake

Cake is chocolate and vanilla with buttercream. The blanket, rug, headboard and foot board are fondant. The pillow is a little bit of cake wrapped in fondant. The figurines are plastic toys.

Victorian Cake

This cake was made for a Sweet 16. She birthday girl loved pearls and cameos, ribbons and lace. This is what I came up with. The cake is buttercream, everything else is white modeling chocolate with edible pearl dust.

Lightning McQueen 3D Cake


The Cake:
(This car is buttercream, airbrushed red. The wheels are white modeling chocolate covered in Black fondant. The lightning, the logo and the eyes/windows are gumpaste and airbrushed.)

Honestly, I know I could have done better, been more detailed, but I was up past midnight working on this, finishing the rest of the platters for the party the next day and had to nurse our baby in between projects. But I still think it came out pretty damn good!
