Julius Cake & Cupcake Tower

My friend was having a Paul Frank themed party for her daughter's 10th Birthday. I wanted the cake to look similiar to the invitation so I used the Frozen Buttercream Transfer method (FBCT) achieve my results. This was my first time using the method. It was an easy process, but it will take some more practice on the detail.

Her color theme was teal, yellow, and red. I made the cupcake wrappers with my baby Cricut and the Cricut Lite Cupcake Wrapper cartridge (LOVE IT!!!!). The paper is scrapbook paper from my growing collection that had all of the colors for her theme.

I decided to add a cherry to the cupcakes with white frosting so that they'd look like ice cream (like the top of Julius' head).

Thanks for looking and I would love to have your feedback.

Special thanks to my daughter for her help on Julius and my son for making the cupcake wrappers!

Sushi & Sashimi Cake

I made this for a friend's 40th birthday (they celebrated with dinner at a sushi restaraunt). The base is a 9"x13" cake that was iced in buttercream and then covered in fondant. The sushi pieces are mini-muffins that I frosted, wrapped in a thin black piece of fondant, and topped gumpaste rice (made with a garlic press). The sashimi pieces are gumpaste and sit on small cake slices that were iced in buttercream and then covered in fondant and wrapped with a thin black piece of fondant. The ramkin is a mini-muffin wrapped in gumpaste and topped off with black buttercream frosting to respresent the sauce. The chopsticks are gumpaste. TYFL!

I made this for a friend who's son was coming home from the Navy. The base is a 11"x15" cake that was iced in buttercream and then covered in fondant. The uniform, bow, and rope trim was made with fondant. The cap was half of the sports ball pan that I iced with buttercream and covered in fondant. TYFL!

Happy Birthday Ladybug

I received my Martha Stewart Cricut Cake mahine a few weeks ago and I could not wait to test it out so I decided to use it to make this cake.

This was a ladybug cake that I made for a friend's 3rd birthday. It's and 8"x3" cake frosted with buttercream. The lettering and ladybug's are fondant cut with my Martha Stewart Cricut Cake mahine. Thanks for looking!

Welcome Back Teachers & Faculty

I made this cake for my husband's school to welcome the faculty & staff back to school. The fondant accents were made with gumpaste using the Cricut Cake. The notebook pages & binder rings are gum paste as well. Edible markers were used to write on the pages. To ensure there was enough cake for everyone, I made cupcakes as well. The cupcake wrappers were made by my 10 year old son using the Cricut Cupcake Wrapper cartridge and scrapbook paper.

Thanks for looking.
