Football-Themed Birthday Cake!

Last month I made a yummylicious birthday cake: classic vanilla gluten free cake with smooth whipped chocolate buttercream.  {Wish I got to eat a slice!}

I only knew the birthday boy liked football so I was given free reign to design.  My hubs actually helped come up with the idea of yard lines since I know nothing about football 😉  So fun to make!

Eagle Birthday Cake

My largest cake order yet: two layer sheet cake for a Pensacola principal’s surprise birthday party!

My customer wanted an edible, 3D bald eagle to grace the cake.  She said that bald eagles hold a lot of spiritual meaning in addition to it being the school’s mascot.  She also wanted it to look like Alaska with the eagle perched on top of an iceberg (with all that gorgeous blue color!)
 So I sculpted an eagle out of rice krispies and covered it in gum paste.
36 eggs total in this cake!  I put 4 half sheet cakes together to make one huge double layer sheet cake.

Strawberry filling in between the layer… sealed in with my beautiful crumb coat layer… 😉

Covered in marbleized marshmallow fondant!  In hindsight I won’t cover a cake this large with fondant again… I don’t have the proper equipment to do so easily.  But thankfully the marbleized effect helped cover the two fondant pieces and it just looked more like water!

Iceberg made out of rice krispies as well.

I was very happy I had the opportunity to make this cake.  It pushed my creativity limit and I gained a lot of experience from it.  

Happy 50th Reggie!  Hoped you enjoyed your surprise party!!

Disney Sugar Decorations!

   Ahh I am so sorry I’ve been MIA with my blog lately… during Columbus weekend we went to Amelia Island for my brother-in-law’s (Gorgeous!wedding and I just haven’t gotten my groove back!


   However, no worries… I have been playing with sugar still… A LOT of sugar!


   This Saturday is the Disney Halloween contest  eeeek!  My theme is “Mickey’s Halloween Nightmare.”  Here are a bunch of my decorations I’ve made over the past week and half!  (We haven’t been able to eat at our dining room table for about a few weeks now oops).

Here’s Mickey… my first time ever “sculpting” with gum paste.  I painted his colors on by mixing my gel colors with vodka.
Minnie the Witch with her brood of pumpkins.

Boooo!  Mickey ghosts!

Royal icing spiders, bones, hands, and eyes.


Marshmallow fondant coffin with royal icing spookiness.

Last but not least, possessed Pluto with crazy eyes and vampire fangs!
