Who Lives in a Pineapple Under the Sea?

Another SpongeBob cake! This one is extra special though. One of my favorite ladies, @GenSpin, ordered it for her youngest son. I was super duper excited to make this cake!

I had made one similar to this before, but the pineapple was a flat fondant piece. I wasn't a huge fan of it, so this time I made the pineapple out of cake. MUCH better! And I added Gary the Snail. :)

Like Mother, Like Daughter

A former co-worker and her mother have birthdays one day apart. She wanted to celebrate with matching cakes. She loves Hello Kitty. So a cake with Hello Kitty and Mary White (her mom) was perfect! I made two separate cakes so the birthday ladies could each have their own cake.

Nom Nom

Last week, one of my Internet Marketing peeps had a birthday. She's a total geek for Joss Whedon, so my original plan was to make a cake having to do with him. Then one of my other work peeps suggested making a hedgehog cake since she has one named Nom Nom. Genius!

I looked for some ideas online, but most of the cakes weren't very good. Until I came across one that used almonds for the spikes. Double genius!

Here's my little hedgehog:

The "spikes" took forever to put on the cake. Good thing this was a small cake!

Double the Cheese

One of my favorite ladyfriends at work requested a cheesecake that looked like cheese for her birthday. She requested it months ago, so I couldn't let her down!

I ate the cut-out piece. :X

The Hoopty

My "boss" drives a hoopty. Boss is in quotations because even though I'm reporting to him, he's not technically my boss. It's too confusing to get into, so let's just leave it at that. haha For his birthday, I made a cake of his hoopty. He hates fondant, so I got to actually pipe an entire cake! It's been awhile.

Holy Delicious, Batman!

An old co-worker ordered a Batman-themed cake from me a couple weeks ago. She knew exactly what she wanted. She had it all sketched out. So that made things easy! haha

My Favorite Robot

Invader Zim/Gir cakes are one of my favorites to make. I've only gotten to make two though. Bummer! Here's a giant Gir I made for a co-worker...

I didn't mean to use a black foil for the cake board. I forgot about his black legs, arms and ears. So I outlined them in white fondant. All better!

And I made some matching cupcakes!

There's one geeky realm I just don't understand: World of Warcraft. I don't get how people become obsessed with it. I've never tried to play though. I'm not hatin' at all. I just don't get it, but that's alright! To each his own. :)

Here's a WoW logo cake I made for a co-worker. I didn't know if she was Horde or Alliance, so I played it safe. haha
