Super Mario Cake

Super Mario Cake, originally uploaded by gensler97.

Making a ckae for my boys is never easy. I saw the Super Mario cakes and decided to give it a try. Who wouldn't love a cake like this? It makes me nostalgic for the old days. The cake was a complete surprise to my son and he really enjoyed it. The icing is fondant and buttercreme accents.

Fondant Tastes Good???

I have read so many articles about how horrible fondant tastes. How so many people prefer buttercream and just do fondant for looks. I was curious and took the Wilton Class for Fondant. You can see my present cake in an earlier post. I thought it would taste bad, but we tried it anyway. It was wonderful. We had left over cake from a party and the fondant cake disappeared first. Even my hubby ate it, and he doesn't eat sweets.

For anyone out there afraid to try fondant, I would go for it. I use the Marshmallow Fondant I made at home and did not add any flavoring.

Fondant Present Cake

Fondant Present Cake, originally uploaded by gensler97.

This is my own creation from my Wilton 3 class. This is made completely with fondant. The bow was super easy to make and I would definitely use it again on a cake. I had my doubts that my cake would turn out this cute, but am very pleased with the outcome.

Pokemon Cupcake Cake

Pokemon Cupcake Cake, originally uploaded by gensler97.

I have wanted to try making a cupcake cake for a long time. This is my first try. It was a lot of fun and can't wait to try another one soon. I layed my cupcakes out on a cake board and glued down the outside ones with frosting. This cake includes 24 cupcakes. Then I used the large Wilton Tip for icing the top. Using a hot spatula I spread the icing. Then just piped my border and added my decorations. Yum! Yum!

This is my cake from Wilton 2. I think I learned a lot in this class, and I think I learned a lot of fun things to try. The royal icing flowers where great. The basketweave was definitely a technique I couldn't not learn from a picture, but it is not hard to do. It just takes a lot of work to complete. The bird is made of colorflow, which is a lot like the royal I use on cookies, but way too hard to eat. I used oreo buttercreme frosting between the layers. Yum! I definitely think you should take Wilton 2. Wilton 1 was not very informational because I knew the basics, so I was extremely happy with what I learned in this class.

Wouldn't these be great cupcakes for an 80's party, or for a 30th or 40th birthday party? Great eye for detail.

Princess Castle Cake

Princess Castle Cake, originally uploaded by gensler97.

I made this cake for my daughter's birthday party tomorrow. I was definitely a difficult cake to make, but it turned out o.k. for a newby cake decorator. My husband drilled holes in the towers, so I could stick a skewer or dowel rod though the cake to hold them still. The turrets are covered in purple candy melts and sanding sugar. The cake is buttercream icing.

This is more cake than we need, but she saw a picture and wanted one. It was fun.

These are very fancy looking, but they are actually a simple design. No matter how simple the design, these are amazing cupcakes.

Hannah Montana is so popular right now that almost any girl over the age of 4 would ask for a cake like this. Kiddiekakes always does a great job and this cake is a perfect example of that. A simple design that is still amazing.

Birthday Cupcakes for my Daughter

My latest cupcakes. I made the rose pattern on top. It was so easy and the effect is nice. I put all three colors in a pastry bag and just let the colors combine. This is a really neat look and gives a lot of interest to the cupcakes.

Cupcakes, What to do with Leftover Frosting...

Cupcakes, originally uploaded by gensler97.

I had several colors of frosting left, so I started to put themin a piping bag and came up with a variety of colors. I started out with red and yellow. Then I added green, purple, and blue. They were very cute. I ran out of cupcakes, so I will have more to make next week.
