Some Birthday Cakes

My son's 3rd birthday cake.

Here is Tigger carrying some presents for my little one.

This is a 3-d Thomas the Train I made for my daughter's second birthday. The front of the train is a 6 inch round cake on top of a rectangle bottom layer.

This is the 3-d car cake pan. I made it to look like a police car for a friend's daughter who works on the force.

Class Cakes

This is one of the cakes I had to do for the Wilton class I took. It was practice for doing the frosting rose.

Here is a shamrock cake to practice the star fill-in that is used frequently on character cakes.

This cake combines several techniques. It has a basketweave on the sides, royal icing flowers, and color flow butterflies. Royal icing allows for make ahead flowers and the color flow allows for more 3-d effects.

This is the fondant present cake. It is first frosted with buttercream frosting, then covered with a layer of fondant, and finally decorated with fondant embellishments.
