I wanted to congratulate everyone who graduated, may it be a step closer towards reaching your goal.
So being graduation week I had a few cakes to do. One of the people celebrating a graduations was my beautiful sister, Sarah. She graduated from UTA with her masters and of course I had to do it big! This cake was only one of my gifts to her for this great accomplishment in her life. I love you sister and know you will do great things in the work. Your touching people one life at a time. Congratulations again Sarah!
This one is a cake I got asked to do for a graduate from UTD. The parents wanted a round cake and since his fraternity nickname is Mad Hatter I saw this as an opportunity to make it into a mad hatter hat.
And last but not least was the boyfriends graduation cake. Okay on this cake I was a little strapped for time and decorated it in 20 minutes prior to his graduation party. I still loved the way it came out! Congratulations Boyfriend!
Okay, this was my first go at a fairy cake. My mom used to do this type of cake for my sister and I when we were younger but with buttercream so she guided me though this one. I started off by cutting a hole in the cake where the doll would fit. Then, wrapping the bottom half of the fairy doll in plastic wrap as to not get it dirty in the cake. Decorated her top in fondant and let it dry. I then covered the cake in fondant and made a hole and stuck her in the cake. I finished it up with some decorations and tada my very first fairy doll cake.
My uncle specifically asked for this type of cake for his birthday.
Well, Tio here you go. Enjoy your denture cake!
My my my, it has been a long night but in the end I have prevailed. I am proud to say the xbox 360 cake is DONE! I could have not pulled if off by my self, with that being said, thank you boyfriend for helping me and taking over when I just about had it. :)
Xbox 360 cake. Tada!
Even though this seems to be an easy cake for the most part to do (besides all the detail) I must admit I did learn something very valuable from the cake. Never and I do repeat, NEVER ice a cake and stick it in the freezer over night and fondant it the next day with out letting it come to room temperature. It makes the fondant wet, sticky and when it started to dry it begins to crack because my cake was expanding.
Moral: Don't expect an easy looking cake to be easy because cakes do fight back! OR Don't forget you left your cake in the freezer.
