Little Peanut

This cake was for a baby shower and I was told that the shower theme was elephants. They don't know the gender of the baby so they just call it "little peanut". She really wanted me to incorperate peanuts into somehow and this is what I came up with. The elephant and peanuts are made out of gumpaste and the cake was a butter cake with vanilla almond buttercream and fresh strawberries. Yumm!!
I had so much fun making the elephant and peanuts. I thought that since they called the baby "little peanut" it would be really cute to have the elephant holding a baby peanut wrapped in a recieving blanket. When the cake was picked up, she was so thrilled with how it turned out.

Beast Boy!

This cake was for my nephew's 3rd birthday. When he told me he wanted a Beast Boy cake I had no idea what he was talking about. So after some googling I learned that he is from a cartoon called Teen Titans. He has the ability to turn into any animal, that's why he's called Beast Boy.
I really wanted to do a 3D figure but I didn't have much time to make one so I did a 2D picture of his face and made his belt around the bottom of the cake. His favorite color is blue so I did a blue velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. It was delicious!

Take Me Out To The Ball Game!

This cake was for my son's first birthday. I had so much fun working on his cake. As you can tell his birthday party was baseball themed and we went all out! We had the main cake for everyone to eat, Tanner's smash cake, and burger and fries cupcakes/sugar cookies. Everything was super delicious and turned out perfect!
