I had the privilege of making a wedding cake for a friend recently. I really enjoyed working on it and was pleased with the outcome. It looks like fondant, but is actually all buttercream, smoothed with the Viva paper towel method.

My sister-in-law and I always try to make something nice for our mother-in-law each year. She is so good to us that it's just a very small way for us to show our appreciation. This year we made a bouquet of roses. They were mini cupcakes skewered into a vase. The leaves are white chocolate formed on toothpicks.

My twins turned five today. Here's their birthday cakes.
Joey loves hockey, specifically the Pittsburgh Penguins. I put 11 on the sleeves in honor of his favorite player, Jordan Staal. The rest of the players' numbers are on the edge of the cake.
Bekah wanted a Little Mermaid cake, but I didn't want to do the dress like I did last year, so this is what resulted.

My youngest boy just turned 3. For years he has loved all things cow. I was all geared up for a fantastic cow cake, but the week before his party he started arguing that he needed a Batman cake. I wasn't willing to completely abandon the cow theme, so I merged themes. Introducing probably the first and only Batman cow cake.
I think he liked it. :-)
