It's in the Bag

The same co-worker who ordered the penny cake, also ordered two purse cakes. She wanted one leopard print and one Coach print. The Coach logos look so good because it's an edible image. haha But I did draw the leopard spots.

A Penny for Your Thoughts

I make a lot of the same theme cakes. Of course I love making them all, but it's nice when I get a request for something different. A co-worker wanted a birthday cake for her dad. He collects coins, so she wanted a 1943-S penny. I guess it's a rare coin. I don't know anything about coin collecting, but I was excited to make this cake! Instead of "In God We Trust" I put her dad's name. And instead of 1943, I put his birth year.

It's Hello Kitty season! Or something like that, because I've gotten a lot of Hello Kitty cake orders lately. I've done a few Hello Kitty face cakes before, so I wanted to change things up with this one. My co-worker's daughter's favorite color is purple, so I wanted to incorporate it in the cake. Other than that, I didn't really plan out a design. Going with the flow was a good idea, because the cake was adorable!

Captain Americake

One of my bosses loves Captain America. I made him a Captain America shield cake for his birthday a couple years ago. I thought I'd get a little fancier this year. And the movie comes out this week. Coincidence? I think not!

Cap was made out of fondant, of course. :)

Pee-Wee's Sweet Adventure

There's a screening of Pee-wee's Big Adventure on the beach tomorrow night. I told my friend Justin that I was going to make Pee-wee cupcakes for us to eat during the movie. He knows the guy putting on the event and before I knew it, he made a deal for me to sell my cupcakes at the event. I went from making probably a dozen cupcakes to making almost 100. lol

I didn't have enough time to make fondant toppers, so I made some out of card stock. Here's a pic of the toppers...

And the cupcakes...

Harry Potter

One of the winners from the bake sale at work loves Harry Potter. Since the last film comes out tomorrow, she ordered a cake to celebrate! She sent me some pictures of cakes she liked, but told me to do whatever I wanted with the cake. I love Harry Potter, too. I've been re-watching the films to get ready for the last one, so I was super prepared to make this cake!

Tom Riddle's diary, basilisk fang, golden snitch, wand, glasses and a Gryffindor scarf...

Unicorns and Rainbows

The wonderful VS_Jess requested a cake for her daughter's birthday. Her daughter loves horses - all horses, real and fantasy. Fantasy ones are more fun, so I went with a unicorn theme. When it comes to unicorns, you've got to have rainbows, too!

You can't really see it in the picture, but the unicorn and blue part of the cake are covered in pearl dust. Sparkle, sparkle!

BTW, Jessica makes some awesome hair bows/flowers. Check out Vintage Swag on Facebook.

Happy Trails to You...

I got a last-minute cake order this past weekend. They wanted something simple, so I took it. Here's a going away cake for a family moving to Texas.

Hello Kitty + Zombie + Nerd = Awesome

Raysa, one of my BFFs, won a custom cake from me months ago. She finally claimed her cake for her birthday last weekend. She said she wanted a nerdy or zombie Hello Kitty. I decided to combine both for one awesome Hello Kitty. You can't really see it in the picture, but I covered the cake in red splatter. I love putting "blood" splatter on cakes!
