I wanted to make this cake special for my nephew Aidan… his theme was Super Mario Bros. so I thought it would be super cool if you could actually play the game on the cake… they loved it! The cake was chocolate with vanilla buttercream frosting.
This was a Grey Goose Vodka bottle sitting in a bucket of ice. The cake was chocolate fudge with cream cheese frosting and vanilla buttercream under the fondant decorations. There is cake inside the whole thing, even under the neck and cap of the bottle. There was wooden sticks inside the bottle to support the position of the bottle. I hand painted the scene on the bottle by mixing food coloring with vanilla extract.
Mary Engelbreit Cupcakes May 21, 2010
There were 42 each of carrot with cream cheese frosting and 42 each of lemon with vanilla buttercream frosting. All flowers and letters were designed in my marshmallow fondant to resemble Mary Engelbreit’s style complete with black and white checkered cupcake liners. I’m sooo happy with how these turned out!

Hey Diddle Diddle Baby Shower Cake April 9, 2010
I made this cake for my good friend Nettie’s baby shower. Her LO’s name will be Jeramiyah, so cute!
The cake was white chocolate and the filling and frosting was cream cheese and the cake was decorated in my marshmallow fondant. Yes, the moon was also cake underneath. =) I did not make the cow, I found it at Walmart in the Easter section but I did clean up all the lines on it and made the baby binky and baby bottle out of fondant. I did the writing on the stars with an edible writer pen.
Hermes Birkin Bag Purse … Cake! April 1, 2010
I am soo happy with how this cake turned out! I made this cake for my best friends birthday. She loves purses and collects them so I thought it would be perfect to make her a purse cake for her birthday! So I did some research online for an expensive hard to get purse and found the Hermes Birkin Bag.
Her favorite color is purple so that was a given for the purse color. For some reason though I couldn’t get the exact color of the cake when I was taking pics of it =/. Anyway, the cake itself was chocolate fudge with chocolate buttercream frosting, all home made. I made the base like a sheet cake but laid white marshmallow fondant and formed it to look like a piece of silk cloth. I painted it with Wilton white shimmer dust to give it that silk sheen.
Now for the purse itself. A few days before her bday I premade the fondant and made all of the intricate pieces to let them dry out for a few days like the buckle, straps, lock, handles, tag and the chord holding the lock. Then I layered and cut the cake to shape and frosted it. I measured the cake, rolled out my purple fondant and cut it to size and molded it over the cake. (There’s too many details to go into this so I’m making it brief) Then I used a Wilton rolling teeth tool to make all of the stitches. I stuck the handles on using toothpicks and purple buttercream as glue. Then I dusted Wilton lavendar shimmer dust on the purse and added the rest of the details… ans viola! A Hermes Birkin-Bag Purse Cake! My BFF loved it so much she couldn’t get herself to eat it, so we ate the base instead. ;D
