Strawberry Shortcake

This cake was our first attempt at making a sugar-free cake. The recipe turned out okay as far as we could tell and the cake was very cute! We didn't have time to make our own Strawberry Shortcake but luckily we had a figurine on hand!

Coffee Cup Cake

Our grandparents both have birthdays the same week in December and grandpa ordered a cake to take to their Wednesday Coffee... The original cake was a giant coffee cup with the names of their grandchildren and great grandchildren written on it. The "saucer" on the bottom was a little too thin to hold the giant cup or to support dowels! So it basically destroyed itself.

So instead we made a more sturdy version with coffee cups and instead of Sweet N Low we wrote Walt N Ev. They were just as pleased with this version!

Hunting/Fishing Cake

This cake was made for a deer and bird hunting/fishing birthday boy. (Well, MAN, but that doesn't sound as good!) There are little rainbow trout in the river, even though we are pretty sure we don't have rainbow trout around here!

This was a last minute order for a graduation party, we had run out of frosting so it was very thin and then red velvet cake started to crumble through. It actually gave it a very cool "vintage" look, and they were very pleased with it.

Christmas Morning Gingerbread Cake

This was for a Christmas party, they wanted a gingerbread house but did not like gingerbread. The inside of the cake is White Almond Sour Cream cake and the gingerbread was made and placed around the cake. There are quite a few details that aren't very visible in the photos!

Sweet Thing Cake

This was an order for a 31 year old birthday girl. Coincidentally the decorator was also turning 31 that week. Turned out the order was fake and she made her own birthday  cake! And she loved it!

This is a Batman, Spiderman, Superman cake. They added the figurines themselves later!

Penguin Snowball Fight!

This cake depicts a mommy, daddy and baby penguin having a snowball fight. It was for a a little boy's first birthday.

Dexter Cake

If you haven't seen the show Dexter the cake may seem a little odd to you. The birthday boy wanted a Dexter cake so we make the victim sport his matching tattoo... even though we placed it on the wrong side!

Shih Tzu cake

We were very nervous that this cake wouldn't turn out but the "grass tip" for the frosting makes amazing looking hair! This was an order for a little girl who wanted a shih tzu cake. I can't imagine having to cut into this and eat it but it turned out great!

Liver cake!

This cake was made for a man's birthday who had a liver transplant the year before. This was our first attempt at making a human organ out of cake. And most likely it will be our only chance! :)
