Cool Cake Pops-A New Phase


                                                           I recently started experimenting with cake pops and the different designs you can make. I make the cake pops from scratch forming each one individually and then dipping them in melted chocolate. Once the first layer hardens I dip them in a second color and then pipe the melted colored chocolate into cool designs. I really like the dark blue one with light purple shapes. I also tried covering them in crushed candy bar, colored sprinkles and candied pearls. The designs are only limited by your imagination.

Fondant "Present" Cake

This was a cake covered in fondant and made a fancy detailed bow to look like a present. I covered a vanilla cake in white fondant and colored the fondant purple for the ribbon and curled thin strips of fondant to give it a little more detail. I made pink fondant for the decorations. I alternated colors in the stars to make them pop out. The lucky person who got this cake couldn't wait to open the present and eat the cake that was inside.

Sydney Knows Shoes!!

Syd's a fashionista!!!
Syd knows shoes!!!
This was  a fun cake to make yet very demanding. The focus of the design was obviously the SHOE. Each one of the little candied pearls that decorate the front and heel of the shoe was placed by hand. A very slow and time consuming process that requires a steady hand, a good tweezer and LOTS of patients. But definitely worth it as she went heel over head (I know a bad pun) when she saw this cake.

Little Boys Love Dump Trucks

This little boy loved Elmo and dump trucks so I made it seem like Elmo was driving the truck. I was able to form the truck by layering cakes and cutting them on an angle to make it look like the truck was dumping its load. The load is crushed Oreo cookies with some smashed M&M's to give it a bit of color and make it look more like real garbage. If you look carefully you'll see that I left a few Oreos intact to use as wheels.

Shared Birthday Cupcake Cake

Cathy and Max have shared many birthdays and many cakes. This was fairly simple but focused on the details of the letters. By the way this is one of those cupcake cakes where everyone gets to eat their own cupcake.
