Chicago Cubs fan Birthday cake

Chicago Cubs baseball jersey birthday cake. I carved the t shirt from a half sheet cake and then used buttercream frosting to cover it. The Cubs logo, letters and numbers were all cut from moldable buttercream, which works much like fondant. The pros of moldable buttercream are that it is easy to work with and tastes much better than fondant. It works well for flat or cut out decorations. It can be used for molding figures but I don't think it would hold up and be as durable as fondant in that situation. I haven't tried covering a cake with it, but that may be something to try someday. Get the recipe for moldable buttercream here

My Daughter's 6 Foot Long Wedding Cake







This is the monumental, 6 foot long Wedding Cake I made for my daughter's wedding last year. It took 20 cake mixes total! I finished the decorating at about 3 am the morning of the wedding. It is actually a little over 6 feet long since that is a 6 foot table and we had to curve it back around!

Baby Bump Baby Shower Cake for Baby Girl



Baby bump cake made for a baby girls shower. Used a pyrex bowl for the belly and for the breasts, I used a copper mold that was oval shaped and cut it in half. I love using copper molds to bake cakes in, they seem to heat very evenly, baking the cake perfectly!
