The Road Goes Ever Ever On...

This is a cake I did for a cake contest at the local library. It had to have a literary theme so I choose the Hobbit.

This is a character cake I made with the stiffer icing. I used a tip 21 to make his fur and did the outlining with a tip two.

These are some cakes I have made with various flowers on them. I love the shine that the meringue based buttercream has.

Present Cake

This is my first present cake. It was easier than I thought it would be in constructing it, but the fondant loops must dry over night before you can put it together. I used chocolate buttercream over a chocolate cake. I used different sized cutters to make the circles.

Grumpy Cat

I made this cake for a fellow cat lover for their birthday. It's a chocolate cake with white buttercream icing. It was my first time drawing a cartoon on a cake.

Mushroom House

This is the mushroom house that I made with the giant cupcake pan. It was a lemon cake filled with a thin layer lemon curd and lemon cream. I used the meringue based buttercream which proved to be difficult to smooth over the curve to the of mushroom cap but with a little patience it turned out quite well.

Candy Box

This is a candy box cake I made for my friend's birthday. It's chocolate cake wrapped in fondant and I used a cookie cutter to make the star impressions. The chocolate covered strawberries are resting a layer of draped fondant.
