Here is my very first 2 tiered wedding cake using fondant! And making roses out of fondant! Seriously, everything took about 12 hours to do, by the time I was done. However, I was learning along the way and will probably get quicker now that I am getting the hang of things! Everyone loved the cake and thought it looked like a professional did it! I LOVE this cake!

Here are my Valentine cakes that I made! Including my first order from a paying customer! Woohoo!!!
The above cakes all used fondant and bordered with buttercream frosting.
The below cake is using buttercream frosting and conversation candy hearts! I also piped "Happy Valentines' Day" on the cake!
A dear sweet little boy named Kasey Radford passed away from brain cancer called Glioblastoma on February 4th, 2009. He was 11 years old. His family had a celebration of his life on the one year anniversary of Kasey's passing, and I offered to make the cakes. They were a surprise to the family as far as what I would be doing. Kasey loved to play a dice game called "10,000", so I did two dice cakes. And because of the amount of people coming, I decided to do a 3rd cake and found a design with an angel that was fitting for the occasion. The dice on the side of the cake are actually sugar cubes with piped dots to make them look like dice. These are some of my favorite cakes right now. Not only for the way they turn out, but for the reason they were made.
This is what everyone kept saying looks like an Easter cake. . . . in January! It was my 2nd course where we learned how to make flowers out of Royal Icing and making the bird out of Color Flow! Very interesting and lot's of fun to create more real-looking flowers! Also learned how to make the basket weave out of buttercream frosting! I absolutely hated cutting the cake because it looked so pretty and had many, many hours worth of time invested in making the flowers. But it tasted good and everyone liked it, which matters most!
