This is based on Ms. Ross's retirement cake. I used sage buttercream with brown and yellow accents. The flowers and leaves are gumpaste. I challenged myself by painting the leaves and flowers for texture.
The girl wanted a purple princess hat...
The boy wanted a red and black wizard hat...
And the mom wanted one 3D cake...
It was so fun making this cake. I used a sugar cone for the very top of the cake. I put sugar dragees on the princess side and edible glitter on the wizard side.

The captains of the DFW Breast Cancer 3Day got together for a Christmas party, so of course I made a cake. Ambulance for the medical team, motorcycle for route safety, van for sweep, traffic cones for traffic, flags for check-in, tents for gear and tent, person with cup for hydration and food, semi-truck for 3Day staff.

I made this cake for Loretta Ross's retirement as CES principal after 14 years. The invitations had turquoise daisies with brown and lime accents. The flowers were made out of gumpaste. I layered the daisies to give depth to them. I free-handed the scrolls on the sides. The cakes were chocolate, french vanilla, and carrot with buttercream icing.
This cake was made for a friend's friend who was having twin girls. The idea came from the Pink Cake Box lady from the Food Network. I modeled the pregnant lady out of gumpaste. I was very nervous at first, but I was pleased with how it turned out. The cake was chocolate and french vanilla with buttercream icing. The letters, dots, and flowers were fondant and gumpaste.

Another end of the season softball cake. My friend has me come up with a different cake each season for her daughter's softball team. This season the team was the City Champ for their level. The cakes are french vanilla and chocolate with buttercream icing. The bat's texture was made using gel coloring and a toothpick. I craved the glove using my hand as a guide. Then I made a hole for the ball cupcake.
This cake was made out of buttercream icing, teddy grahams, lifesavers gummies, pretzels, and fruit rollups. And yes you see a can of store brought icing. However, that was bought before I starting making my own chocolate buttercream. (Which is SOOO much better than the store bought)
For this cake, I used a 9x13 pan and carved Nemo. I used the cover of the movie as a template for the decorations.
