Pirate Cake!!

For Erin's speed dating company Halloween Party she was planning on making a 3 tier cake. With everything else she had to do I offered to help out. This cake was a lot of fun to make! The bottom tier is 3 layers of dark chocolate , the second tier in yellow cake, the top tier is alternating layers of chocolate and yellow cake all with butter cream. All 3 tiers are covered in fondant, the big skull is gum paste. The coins and swords are plastic which Erin had already purchased.

Baby shower/marathon cake

This cake was for a joint baby shower/ pre Nike's women's marathon party.
The cake is self was chocolate with vanilla/almond butter cream, covered in fondant, the little details on the side are gum paste.

basketball birthday

Reed told his mom Friday morning he wanted a cake for his sleepover Saturday. I don't usually do cakes this last minute, but as it was a simple cake and I really enjoyed working on both of the cakes for his sisters in the past I decided I could pull it off. Reed really enjoyed his cake and reequested a very similar cake for his actual birthday a few days later.
Both cakes were yellow cake with butter cream icing, filling and details.
