Who says size matters?!

I just had to post this may not be much to look at but it goes down as one of the largest cakes I have ever created! Finished product was 3ft by 2.25ft by 4.5 inches tall. It weighed 40lbs all said and done!

The clients were a private securities firm that train military personnel from countries all around the world. This cake was done for a 100 member paramilitary crew from Qatar for their graduation ceremony. The cake is the Qatar flag and has "Congratulations" in arabic written on it. (That was a little hard to do, but their translator said I did a pretty good job...whew!)

70th Birthday Present Cake

Here is a cake I did for my dad's 70th birthday celebration. Its a simple 1/2 sheet cake (white cake with fresh strawberry filling) frosted with homemade buttercream frosting and covered in white fondant. The cake is accented with a blue fondant bow, stars and picks with stars and "70" on them.

Sock Monkey Birthday

This Sock Monkey themed party was done for a little boys 1st birthday party. His mom pulled out all stops by ordering the cake, matching sock monkey sugar cookies on a stick and banana shaped cookies for all to enjoy.
The mom sent me a copy of the invite which had the image of the sock monkey on it that the cake and cookies on a stick were designed after.
The cake was chocolate and covered in fondant and finished off with sock monkeys and his name.

Animal Print Baby Shower Cake

This baby shower cake was the biggest cake I've done thus far! It used 12lbs of fondant, 8lbs of powder sugar and 2lbs of butter. The top layer is chocolate w/buttercream, the middle layer is lemon w/buttercream, and the bottom layer is white cake w/buttercream. The mommy and daddy- to- be like jungle animals so this cake design was perfect for a family style baby shower. Congratuations to these future parents!
