Pokemon, Barn Yard, Bubble Guppies, Home, Frozen and Monster High

Wow!!! What a whirlwind of a couple months it has been. Summer is winding down and all the kiddos are back in school. It is such an exciting time and it seems that every one has been trying to get in last minute summer birthday parties! This first one was for my own little kiddo. He loves Pokemon and designed this cake himself. He will definitely be my cake partner when he grows up (although I have much higher expectations for him...like doctor or architect or engineer.....).  

 Pikachu here is made from marshmallow fondant and is completely edible. We couldn't dare eat him/her...not sure on that one...so we will be keeping "it". Marshmallow fondant dries super hard so we can keep it forever...especially if I think to buy some clear coat to spray it with just to keep the color vibrant. 

My little boy is growing up way too fast. 

This is my adorable barn yard cake. Is it not just the cutest? What a fun party theme. All of the little animals are created from mm fondant.  This one had so many adorable details that I thought it would be a fun idea to make a little video of the cake to share so you could see every tiny detail...well...I hated the way I sounded in the video so we will just have to try that one again and I will remember to keep my mouth shut...hehehe. 

 Home Cake! We just adore this movie. It was so fun to bring Oh, Tip and Pig to life. Oh is sculpted from cake. Tip and Pig are mm fondant.  There really weren't very many cakes out there for this movie, so the mom of the birthday girl pretty much designed this from the ground up. She is a party planner and had the most amazing party ever! I will be sure to share her information very soon so she can help you have the dream birthday party as well. 

 Home Cupcakes to coordinate with the cake. 

 Summer Frozen Cake

Bubble Guppies Cake and Cupcakes
Mr. Grouper is completely mm fondant. 

Just so you know...that is a lot of detail in them there cupcakes. They took forever to create, but I just adored them. My little tot loves bubble guppies. It was so fun to see his face as they came together. 

 Little Boy Baby Shower Cake

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Cake

This week was my little man's second birthday. He is in love with Mickey Mouse so of course we had to have a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake. It was such a joy to create a cake for one of my own. His little face when he saw it for the first time make all the time and stress so worthwhile. Of course I let a few imperfections slide on this cake that I would never let go for a clients cake so please over look them...such as the ears are way too small for the head and there totally needs to be at least a Mickey Mouse figure.....lol.

Frozen Castle Cake

How do you like this beautiful Frozen Castle Cake??? I just love all the towers and flags. It is actually a 9/6/4 inch cake, but all those details make it look massive. Castles are definitely my favorite cakes to create!

Pickles and Ice Cream Cake

What pregnant lady doesn't love pickles and ice cream? I thought this was the cutest theme when it was suggested for a cake. I am just in love with how adorable the little pickles and ice cream cones turned out. This is actually a mini cake of only 6 and 4 inches, but it is so full of personality. I just love, love, love it!!!

Romantic Rose Wedding Cake and Auburn Groom's Cake

I just fell in love with this romantic rose wedding cake. The bride had found a picture on pinterest and wanted the exact cake. Problem....I had never created a realistic looking fondant rose. So I googled and you tubed the heck out of it and finally found the perfect tool free technique. I was very pleased with how my roses turned out. It was such a joy to create these cakes for this couple!

 The bride and groom figures on top of this Auburn Groom's Cake are completely edible but can also be kept for years to come as a reminder of the day. Fondant figures dry super hard and if you take the time to spray them with a protective clear paint you could literally keep them forever!
