Cakes, cakes and more cakes

These will all show the cakes I made first up until this past Christmas. Hopefully you will see the progress I have made since 2004. :) I won't bore you with all of them since I have so many but I think this will give everyone and idea. I have gotten a lot better especially with the flavor combinations. After all it is not what it looks like that matters, it is more the taste that does.

This was a cake we had to do for my first class, it was a stacking test and a buttercream icing roses test. I made a "Mad Hatter Garden Party" It was ummmm, interesting.

This was for St. Patrick's Day almost 3 years ago, it barely made it to the party, it was 2 feet high and shifted the whole ride there. When we cut into it, it fell apart.
This was Brenda's Birthday cake in 2005

These were my roses I made out of gumpaste during my second series of classes.

This was another test cake we had to do with scrolling on the sides.

AJ's dads Birthday cake 2 years ago

Ann McCullough's bridal shower cake, it was a Luau.

Then shortly after her Baby Shower cake, she had a carousel theme.

My Aunt Karen's birthday cake from 2 years ago, she loves pink roses.

This was an Easter Cake I did this past Easter. The flowers are all gumpaste.

This was for a Black and White Themed New Year's party we went to this year. I actually loved this cake, even though it was simple.

I just did this cake in November for a 50th Wedding Anniversary for friends of my Mom and Dad's. It took me three days 1-2 hours each night to hand make the flowers. The two cakes were put on different plates because the two tiered cake was a loaded carrot cake with walnuts, a toasted walnut cream cheese filling. The other was a butter cake with a strawberry cream filling. So just in case of allergies.
