The Incredible Hulk

I can't believe it's been 3 months since my last post...I've totally neglected my blog! Oh well, here is a cake that I think is pretty cool and unique. I hand painted The Incredible Hulk on to this fondant covered cake to resemble the cover of a comic book. I used edible gel colors and painted it freehand...and to God be the glory!

Three Birthdays - One Cake!

This is a cake I made some time ago, but loved how it turned out. I made it for the birthday celebration of twins and their older brother. So each tier reflects something unique about each one of them. All the decorations were hand made.

SpongeBob Square Pants

A light variation of a previous design I made for my son. This time for a friend's little boy turning one. He, like many of us, loves Spongybob! The bottom tier was a moist vanilla cake filled with vanilla buttercream and the top tier was a Bailey's flavored cake filled with chocolate buttercream and chocolate chips. Laurys told me that all the guests were "locos" which means crazy with the cake and that it was delicious too!

Who Lives in a Pineapple Under the Sea?!

SpongeBob Square Pants! This was Jeremy's Birthday cake. My 3 year old son who is crazy about SpongeBob. Who doesn't love SpongeBob? I do....He is so funny and just the cuttest thing I've seen! I designed this cake just for him and when I was making it he told me "it's going to be beautiful, right Mom?". He is so precious, he loved it and so did all of our party guests. It was a vanilla cake filled with alternating layers of vanilla and raspberry buttercream (fresh raspberries also added to the buttercream). The top was also a vanilla cake filled with alternating layers of cream cheese buttercream, strawberries and chocolate ganache. The SpongeBob Bouncer was awesome and the kids had a blast.
We actually celebrated Jeremy's, Dad's and Uncle David's Birthday that day.
