I got an inquiry to make a Christian Louboutin shoe box cake and heel. I was a bit scared the heel wouldn't come out like the actual heel she sent me because it had been a long while since I've done a heel and I had recently got a new mold and wasn't to sure how to use it. I did end up having to re-do the heel just because it wasn't to my satisfaction. The second one I loved and actually wanted to keep it for display.
Look at all that BLING!
This was a fun Neon Themed Party. The inside of the cake was even colorful. :)
It has been a long time since I've blogged about my cakes, so now its time to play catch up. Now that I have time on my hands let me quickly show you a preview of what I have been up to this year.
Large Cake Pop Order
I recently got an order for 220 cake pops for a company to give to their top customers and was honored when they ordered the cake pops from me.
Flavors from left to right were strawberry, white almond, chocolate and red velvet.
This is how the boxes were made up.
Me with the finished order. :)
New item added to the menu! :)
I recently added a new item to my cakeball menu. I introduce to you the Alcoholic Cake Ball. A fun adult twist to your average cakeball. These cakeballs have a little side shooter, you can either shoot and eat or eat and shoot the options is totally up to you.
Monster High Cake
I got a request for a Monster High Cake which like usual (since I don't have kids nor am I familiar with shows) I had to look up.
This cake was super fun to work on. I espically loved the skull on top.
Super Woman Cake
Sometime in November I did a Super Woman cake for a beautiful little girl.
Lalaloopsy who ???
In October I had to do a lalaloopsy cake and I agreed to do this cake without even knowing what a lalaloopsy was. Glad to find out it was a show of rag dolls that came to life. After getting some inspirations from a couple of dolls I came up with this cake.
Love how colorful this cake is.
This was a tough cake to make. Everyone knows I am a DIE HARD RANGER FAN so it had to be someone pretty special to get me to make this cake (lol). This was for my sister's boyfriend's birthday. I am not going to lie it hurt more because my Rangers lost to them in the wild card game.
Ball was chocolate cake and bat was made out of rice crispies then covered in fondant. Logos are edible images.
Happy 44th Birthday to the Dallas Fire and Rescue House
I was real honored to do this cake for the 44th birthday of the Dallas Fire and Rescue House #26. I had to go above and beyond of what was done last year for them so instead of doing your typical fire engine or burning building I figured I'd capture the helmet and axe they carry.
I wanted to really dirty up the helmet to show how hard they work for us.
Here is their actual hemet I based the cake off of.
A personal 'Thank You' to all you paramedics and fire fighters out there. :)
This was a crazy last minuet request and by last minuet I meant she only gave me about 2 days to pull this one off. Her son Noah was turning 1 and she wanted to go big with the cake. This was a huge cake about 2 feet or so tall an about 1.5 feet wide and gosh knows how many pounds. Loved the outcome though. I was uncertain on how it was going to come out but this has to be one of my favorite 3D cakes.
The whales with the party hats have to by my favorite ones.
Icing Smiles Cake
I finally got called into action!!! I needed to make a special little boy who loves Elmo his dream Sesame Street Cake. This is what I ended up making him.
Thank you Lauren Kitchens for your help with the Elmo!
I love cookies and milk
Now were in July and the cake was for my sister. We love cookies and milk if we could we would have it for breakfast and dinner ever night but sadly we don't. But to honor the love we have for them I did this cake for her. I love love love this cake. :)
The milk carton was the cake.
Happy Birthday Missy! I love you!
Bridal Shower 'Cake' Pops
A college friend requested wedding cakepops for thank you gifts for a bridal shower she was throwing. These were a lot harder and more time consuming then I would of ever imagined but they did come out beautifully!
Happy Birthday Mommy!
Being a cake decorator I had to go above and beyond for my mom's cake and here is what I ended up doing.
This cake was for her work. All buttercream 3 layers tall. Cake flavor was vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. Wish I would of taken a picture of how the inside looked once it was cut.
And this beautiful little number was for her party we had here at home.
Box top and gems are not edible.
This cake was hard, well not the actual cake but the edible images. The birthday boy loves Sports Illustrated but I wanted to custom the covers for the cake and I am not very good at photoshop so I can to call in my other half. He made the magazine covers for me and customized for the birthday boy.
Cake is all buttercream and edible images.
Sponge Bob & Guitar cake
Finally got to do a Sponge Bob cake.
Guitar cake done for my cousin. I got to pick what ever cake I wanted to make for him and since he plays the guitar what better cake to make then a guitar one? :)
Baby shower cakes
Here are a few baby shower cakes I did this year.
Here are a few cupcakes I made through out this year.
Here is a cake I did last weekend for a Batman loving 2 year old. I also made cupcakes.
Have you heard of the new game Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure?
It's where characters are ‘brought to life’ in a adventure game where children can collect real-world toys and teleport them directly into the game using a mystical Portal of Power. And I got asked to make the Portal of Power into a cake for a boy celebrating his birthday.
I had no idea what that way and had to do my research and luckily I got to see and handle the actual portal of power.
Here is the game's Portal of Power
Now, here is my take on the magical Portal of Power that brings these characters to life along with some delicious cupcakes.
Cake is double chocolate with buttercream filling.
Here is a cake I did for a 21st birthday. The birthday girl loves giraffes and is in Kappa Delta Chi sorority and the boyfriend wanted a cupcake in the mix. The cake is strawberry bottom tier, giraffe pattern and topped it with a giant pink cupcake. I made 2 fondant cake toppers, a giraffe and a penguin (the mascot of KDChi).
Wish you could see the sugar I covered the cake board in.
My first cake of the new year. This was a vanilla cake done for a 17 year old girl who loves the series The Walking Dead.
UPDATE: 12/27/12: Yes Reddit, I am cakingcutie.
My center piece for my table. My candle might not smell but I can eat it. ^_^
I saw a cake like this last year I believe and wanted to try it out. I did have trouble doing such a tall cake but like always it came together in the end.
This is double chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream filling (need my chocolate fix before the new year). I carved out a hole on the top of the cake to be able to fit a tea light.
I showed you my cake toppers for the baby shower safari/jungle themed cake now for the whole picture.
A close up of my toppers.
Some cupcakes with cupcake toppers that went with the cake.
And the baby shower wouldn't be complete with out baby shower themed cake pops.
Can you guess what gender the baby is going to be?
Flavors for the cake pops were red velvet, vanilla almond and carrot. Yumm.
