This cake was made out of a bunch of round cakes cut in half and scrunched all together. A little carving and it looks almost like a football!

Phineas and Ferb

This cake was much more popular than I expected. I have only seen the show a couple of time with my niece but it sounds like a lot of adults love the show just as much as the kids!

Alice in Wonderland

I was very excited about this cake! I have loved Alice in Wonderland forever and wanted to do it justice. It's gotten a lot of compliments despite the fact that the weight of it started to crush the bottom layer! We weren't too concerned, though, since Alice is supposed to be a little crooked!

Cake in progress

We are currently making what will be the decorator's favorite cake so far. We aren't giving out any details but a few of you will be able to figure it out just from the following pictures!

And if you still don't have it this should help:

Another Iowa cake!

As an Oklahoma Sooners fan it's pretty difficult to keep doing these sports cakes of rival teams! But money is money!

Bud Light

This was our first real foray into the world of sculpting cakes! We used a Chocolate Beer Cake recipe just for the novelty of it. It wasn't the best cake for sculpting (or frosting!) and was kind of a pain. We decided to try "quick pour" chocolate fondant because we had all the ingredients. It basically poured very well.... all over the table. We ended up having to dye regular fondant brown. We had planned on taking hard candy mix and making the condensation on the cake by dropping little bits on waxed paper but we didn't want to waste a whole bag of candy mix just for that! So instead we used corn syrup and corn starch mixed together. It sort of looked like our cake fell victim to a sprinkler, but we think everyone will get the idea!
