Chinese Dragon Birthday Cake

I believe this is the 4th Dragon cake in a row that I have done for my son. This year we did a Chinese Dragon made of rice crispy treats and covered with fondant. I steamed the fondant to give it the glossy look. I really struggled with the dragon, he turned out alot bigger and heavier than I thought he would, I wasn't sure I would be able to get him onto the cake but I finally managed to wrestle him on there.

Baby Shower Cake, It's a Girl

One of my daughters friends was having a baby girl and asked me to make the shower cake. I went with a baby bottle, rattle and blocks all carved from cake and iced with buttercream frosting. I hear it was a big hit.

Slot Machine Birthday Cake

For my mother in laws birthday this year I did a slot machine cake. It was really pretty easy, I cut my 11X14 in cake in half and stacked it, carved it into shape and used buttercream icing with fondant accents. I wanted to find the gold foil chocolate coins but I guess it was the wrong time of year so I had to settle for plastic.
