BBQ Grill Cake

Posted By dragonfly79 on Sep 11, 2009 at 12:58PM

This is a cake I just made for my boyfriend's birthday. White cake, mocha chocolate filling, covered with thin layer of butter cream and marshmallow fondant. All of the accents are in fondant except for the "grill grates" which I used lollypop sticks. Oh, I used marshmallows for the charcoal and  used spray food coloring on them.



Zebra Diva Cake

I made this cake for a sweet lady that loves anything with animal print, glittery or shiny items. This is what I came up with. White cake with butter cream icing, covered in marshmallow fondant. This was my first attempt at anything with an animal print, so I think I did pretty good!


Gardening Cake

This is cake is vanilla with butter cream icing. Marshmallow Fondant accents. I'm still having  a hard time getting the butter cream perfectly smooth as I would like, but I'm slowly getting better. I used a cupcake for the pot base.

This cake was double chocolate with chocolate mousse between the layers, topped with a thin layer of buttercream and  Marshmallow Fondant.



Sweet 16 Swirl Cake

This was for a girl's sweet 16 Birthday party. Butter Cake with Butter Cream Icing. I hand piped the swirls which took forever!! I wish I had a better picture of this cake. It was a lighter shade of pink and the blue was more of a torquise.

The terribly tragic story of the cupcake tower wedding cake

Posted By ashleycakes on Aug 3, 2009 at 1:17PM

Chocolate and butter cake cupcakes covered in cream cheese buttercream icing. Adorned with "B" fondant tokens. The top cutting cake was also butter cake with cream cheese buttercream icing.

Those of you that are friends with me on facebook already got to hear me moan and groan about the tragedy of this cake for an entire day last week, so I advise you to skip over this part if you would like.
Basically, my mother, my BIL, and I spent about 2 days and about $75 in materials constructing this cupcake tower that I had planned on using for many years to come in various other weddings and events. However, the caterer of the wedding decided that I was never going to use it again and it was thrown away at the end of the reception. :mob:
I emailed the catering company last week and have not gotten a single response from anyone yet about reimbursing me for the loss of this. Can you tell I'm still a little pissed about it? Grrrrr. Anyway, I guess it was a lesson to me for future reference that I will have to tell everyone working for a catering company not to throw away things that obviously don't look like they should be thrown away, or I guess I will just have to attend every wedding reception that I make a cake for in the future to ensure that they don't destroy my shizz again. :oy:
