Loving the Lion!!!!

This is one of my favorite cakes. I had so much fun using a special tip on the icing bag to make the lion's mane. By layering the icing I was able to give the mane a full look. I used little candies for the ears. Since I like the cowardly lion so much in the Wizard of Oz, I made this lion friendly looking rather than ferocious.

Spiderfic Cake

I had so much fun making this cake. Spiderman is this little boy's favorite superhero so there was no question that when his mother ordered a cake it had to have Spiderman on it. I decorated the sides by draping black icing to look like the spiderwebs that Spiderman shoots at his enemies. The only difference is that this cake had NO ENEMIES!!! Everyone loved it.

Doctor's Stethescope-All the Better to Hear Your Heart!!!!

This cake was for a fantastic pediatrician who has been taking care of me since I was born. I always tease him about wearing his stethoscope on his neck and that he can't hear my heart that way. So when it came time to make him a cake I really wanted to include a stethoscope. I colored and rolled the fondant  and then formed it into the stethoscope. I don't think he'll hear my heart with this one either but I bet it will taste great!!!!!

Fun with Fondant Shapes

This cake was an opportunity to experiment using fondant in all different colors and cutting it into all different shapes then mixing sizes to create depth and 3D. I purposely covered the cake in white fondant so as not to distract from the different shapes and colors.

Hockey & Baseball Go Together

Once again I got to bake a cake to celebrate Max and Josh's birthday. This time is was their 18th birthday but the theme was the same. You should have heard them fighting over the Mets and Yankees. I think Max likes the Mets just to upset Josh the Yankee lover. 

Happy birthday boys!!!!!!! 

Now you really can drive each other nuts.
