Merry Christmas!

I made this cake for my family at Christmastime. The cake was chocolate, filled with a peppermint buttercream and crushed candy canes. All of the figures were made from fondant. The outside of the cake was covered with sanding sugar and royal icing snowflakes. I had a great time dreaming up the scene and making this.

They found a home!

The salon figures that I posted previously found a home on a beautiful cake made by my friend's mother-in-law. I love how the scissors were placed.

Reindeer Fun!

I made this mini cake by carving a 6-inch cake and then covering it with fondant. He's kind of goofy looking and makes me smile.

Fondant Figures

I've been playing around with fondant figures lately and this is what I have so far.

I made these for a friend who owns a salon and spa. She'll be putting them on top of a tiered cake.

Twilight Birthday

This cake was made for a 13-year-old girl's birthday. For those of you who aren't familiar with the books (and now movie), this is based on the covers from the Twilight series. Full credit is given to the fabulous decorator at for the inspiration for this cake. The checkerboard and chess pieces are done in fondant.

Spiders 'n Stuff

This is the cake that I made for my kids' Halloween party. The cake was chocolate, with chocolate buttercream frosting.

Halloween Fun!

These cookies are a great idea for a kid's party. I made sugar cookies in various Halloween shapes and then iced them with royal icing. At the party, the kids used "Food Writer" pens (available at Michael's) to decorate the cookies. They loved this!
