Thiago Rocks his Guitar

Guitar body was covered in orange vanilla buttercream and Oreo cookie cake. The neck was chocolate cake and fudge filling.  All the details were fondant and I called in an expert to consult with some of the guitar, my husband, Dave.

Celebrating Heidi

My country cake was created for a co-worker and friend who received a prestigious award. This cake was a fun cake especially because it is one I would make for myself!

I hand-sculpted and painted the fondant horseshoes.  The sunflowers were made with a flower mold and then assembled in layers. The frosting was my simple buttercream frosting covering a strawberry layer cake on the bottom layer and Oreo cookie cake filled with chocolate ganache and Milky way frosting. The sign was created with MMF also and the impressions were made by a plaster plate with wood engraved in the plaster leaving a natural impression. It was also antiqued with brown coloring to look like wood.
