Wow! Wow! Wow! Wubbzy cake

This was for my neighbor's two year old. My daughter decided he would want to Wubbzy cake and I always do everything she says...

I was happy with it, with the exception of how bumpy Wubbzy is. My fondant stretched too thin and showed every flaw of the cake underneath. I've found that's one of the downfalls of using homemade fondant. It's not as thick as the store bought stuff and isn't as easy to work with. But it tastes so, so much better! I'm willing to have a few bumps in exchange for something that's actually edible. Have you ever tasted Wilton fondant? Ugh.

Graduation cake!

To date, I think this is probably one of my "cleanest" cakes. My edges stayed pretty straight, my lines were pretty clean. Of course, there's always room for improvement and next time I'd support it a bit better. I didn't support the layers and the cake really was too heavy to be just stacked like that. Next time! They also ordered 100 cookies with the University or Oregon logo on them...

They were definitely tasty!

Birthday Cake!

Birthday cake for a 7 year old girl! It was supposed to be Littlest Pet Shop, but I didn't quite pull it off. I think I'm losing my touch... :) This one was a bit tricky for me. I had problem after problem. I used the Wilton bear pan for the body and changed it around a bit, but couldn't quite the the face right. And the whole things seems to be shifting to the right. And my balloons were top heavy and fell over. Good thing it was for a friend... she'll forgive me. :)

Next time, I think I need a denser cake recipe for the 3-D pan. And maybe I should start earlier than the night before it needs to be done!
