Ombre polka dot wedding cake

Polka dot wedding cake for a fun couple.  I loved the colors and had fun putting each layer of the cake together.

 But when I got there the others there to help set things up wanted the cake raised though that hadn't been set up so I didn't have anything to raise the cake.  In trying out several things they had in the kitchen we ended up using this bowl.  But by the time we had moved it several times it didn't sit as straight as it had when I first set it up.  It still looked pretty just not quite as straight as it was before they started moving it all over. 
I hope to get some pictures of them cutting the cake as the inside was polka dotted also.  But here are the reject ones to show you what it was going to look like inside.

2nd birthday to a great little cowgirl

 I have had the great opportunity to make the baby shower, 1st birthday and now 2nd birthday cake for this adorable little girl.  This year they went with a cowgirl theme.

 In addition the larger cake that served the guests they did a mini cake again for the cute girl. 

The hat was handmade with rice krispies treats and fondant.  It turned out pretty good I think.  I had never molded the treats into shapes other than round for fake cakes before so this was a learning experience for me, but one I enjoyed.
In the picture of one the cakes they liked it had a huge #1 candle.  I looked everywhere online and couldn't find where they had gotten it.  So taking the cereal we made a 2 the height the candle would have been.  It had to be a bit thicker to hold it's shape but they loved it.

The back of the cake didn't turn out quite as cute as I wanted.  I had major issues with the mold I was using and all the little fondant accessories to make the bandana look like a bandana didn't come out.  So it's more sparse than I wanted but they loved it.

Sandwhiches anyone?

 It was fun to make these hoagie sandwiches and fries for a teenager's birthday party
Per ideas given in a book I used an assortment of candies to make all the different things used on this and the Chinese take out.  I would just use fondant if I was to do it again. Though it looked cool, the mixture of flavors and textures left much to be desired.  Lesson learned.

 Close up of the fries with the ketchup cupcakes.  These were the favorite for everyone.  They took the red squeeze bottle of ketchup (red frosting) and would squeeze it on the fries just like they do a fast food place.  It was fun to watch them eat them.
 Loved the look of the hoagies and once you pulled off all the toppings of the sandwiches they tasted good.  Just don't eat it with the works the way they were.  One of the things I loved was adding the sesame seeds on top of the buns.

For the cowboy in us

 Though these cupcakes have a flower to add a little girly flair it could easily be given to girl or boy by changing the hat to black and taking off the flower.

Spaghetti and meatballs is every boys favorite treat

 We had fun making this spaghetti and meatballs cake for another teenager.  Boys love food.  He picked dreamsicle cake inside then topped with buttercream frosting and raspberry jelly and chocolate balls for meatballs.  We added some cinnamon breadsticks and pound cake with just a few sprinkles to make it look like garlic bread.
 What fun ideas for teenage boys or even adult boys as who doesn't love food?

For the sportsfan dad

It's amazing how different yet alike so many dads are.  Here are a couple of the sports I have done for dad's over the years for fathers day
Bowling ball for the bowling grandpa
 Basketball for the dad who thinks he's still 25 and can hold his own on the court
 Soccer for the dad who gets out and just plays around with his kids even when he doesn't know how to play
Baseball for the dad who loves to play catch with his sons or just watch games on TV.  The sports you can do for a dad is limitless but here were just a few I've done to get your mind working.
