Adult Birthday Cake

Chocolate cake with chocolate coffee filling and chocolate coffee icing decorated with chocolate covered coffee beans!!!! The friend I made it for LOVES coffee and chocolate anything. (Or was that obvious.) :D It was kind of hard to make since I don't drink coffee, but everyone loved it.

Ms. Ross's Retirement

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.

Baby Shower

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.
