Humpty Dumpty Cake

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. You know the rest.

For a birthday I created a cake within the humpty dumpty theme and I have to say this was one of my favorite cakes I've done in awhile. Even though I'm my harshest critic, I was very happy with the final result of this cake.

I wanted to stick with a paler color palette so I used soft brown, blue, and green to cover the cake.

The cake was three tiers of lemon with strawberry curd and strawberry meringue buttercream.

Porcupine Cake

I was giddy to make this adorable porcupine themed cake for a little girl's first birthday, mainly because I really looked forward to creating the cake topper. I got my inspiration from Sugar High's fondant figure. I wanted her to be plump so I was sure to use a little more fondant to create her body.

The cake was praline crunch frosting and filling with caramel cake.

Painted Cake

I hand painted this cake for a young ladies birthday since she wanted a flower pattern to go with her theme.

Minecraft Cake

My first request for a Minecraft themed birthday cake. I don't know much about the game but I've seen many other cake makers attempting it, so it wasn't too hard to figure out. Basically it's a game where you blow things up. :P Bottom cake was chocolate ganache and top tier was vanilla cream.

Retirement Cupcakes

30 cupcakes made in red velvet with cream cheese frosting and chocolate with chocolate drizzled frosting for a retirement celebration.
