Ouch.



Halloween cake that I did for my brother's Halloween party...I carved the skull from cake and then covered with fondant. It's looks a little too neandertal or monkey-like. I think I should have made it taller and maybe thinned the brow a bit...I guess I'll just have to try another. This one was a lot of fun. It's fun to do something gory now and then.

Happy Halloween!

OOoOOOo! Bats, ghosts and pumpkins! Oh My!


Halloween cupcakes!

Baby Shower cake

This weekend I finished a baby shower cake, the only request being that it incorporate some elements from the invitation:




This is what I came up with:



It was chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream frosting. Yummy. I hope. Since I didn't actually try any of it... :) There are definitely a few flaws apparent in the fondant, but all in all, I was happy with this one!

Halloween Themed Wedding Shower Cake

I had a great time doing this one! It was for a wedding shower and the wedding colors are green, black and cream. The only requirements were that there be some buttercream frosting and a skull...




Boo!



I actually got a little creeped out holding this in my hand and painting it. That's how much I like pointy-legged spiders.



Close up.

I was pretty pleased with the way it turned out.
