Whimsical Birthday Present Cake

Whimsical Birthday Present Cake

This was a cake that my neighbor ordered. She wanted

something special for her birthday. This cake is actually small.

The top tier is a 4in and the bottom is a 6in. I love the quilting

with the flowers.

Childerns Birthday Party Cakes

Over this weekend I had two childrens birthday cakes to make.

Tinkerbell Cake

This cake was for my neighbors little girl. She wanted a Tinkerbell cake. The cake has cream cheese frosting with gum paste cut outs on the cake. There are also little leafs around the bottom of each tier. I think that the funnest part was making the little mushrooms that sit on the top with Tinkerbell.

Pirate Boy Cake

The next cake I made was a little pirate boy with his treasure. When I got the order they sent me a picture of a cake kind of like this one. I guess, a company makes a pan of a little pirate boy. Well I did not have the pan so I made templates out of paper and carved the cake to have the same shape. Then I cut out all the features free hand. It was fun to make.

Cake Tasting Party Cakes

These are some of the cakes that I made for a recent Cake Tasting Party.
For each party I will make three or four mini cakes to sell.
It is a fun way for people to see what I can do and
take home a little piece of edible art with out having to wait.

Open Present with Tissue Paper

This cake was so fun to make!

The top and bottom of the box are all chocolate cake.

The bows and tissue paper are all made from gum paste.

The bow also has a marble affect to it.

White Chocolate Popcorn Bag

This is the second time I have made a popcorn bag,

but this one I topped with white chocolate popcorn.

There is a cake under all the popcorn.

Baseball Cap

This little hat is made from chocolate cake. It is covered with fondant and has gum paste decorations.

Little Red Purse

I love to do purses! There are four layers of cake under all the fondant.

The handle is made from gum paste.

My oldest Daughter was eyeing this cake as I made it.

She asked me if she could have it if nobody bought it at the party.

Well she lucked out because nobody bought it. So is became Caylie's purse.

Spring Flower Cake

This is the last cake that I made for the party.

We actually cut the bottom tier at the party. The bottom cake was two flavors,

raspberry swirl and a peach. The frosting was a cream cheese frosting and covered with

fondant. All the flowers and ribbon are edible.

Just a reminder for all the guests and invited guests to the Cake Tasting Party. You only have till March 21st 2009 to order your cake at the party price. After that it will return to normal pricing. You may order up to two months in advance. I will need to collect the full amount from you to receive the party price and to reserve the date you want the cake. You also must be able to tell me the hostess name to receive the party price. If you would like to order a cake please contact Carrie at 801-472-5364 or Email Carrie at huggycarrie@hotmail.com.

Relief Society's birthday celebration. All the bows, draping, and

Sports Cake

This was a birthday cake for a little boy who loved sports.
I made the football, basketball, and baseball out of gum paste and fondant.
Then I thought it need something more,
so I decided to make a baseball hat out of gum paste.
I think it turned out cute.

Apple Martini Cake

This cake was a birthday cake. When it was ordered they wanted a sheet cake with apple martini in a glass on it. Well I thought that it might look cool if the whole cake looked like a martini glass. So I think that it turned out really good. I made it out of a quarter sheet cake and used all the cake so it still would feed about 24 people.
