Thomas the Train Cake

     My son was turning 4 and totally obsessed with Thomas the Train so we had his party at the B & O Museum in Baltimore.  It was by far one of the best parties we ever had!  We enjoyed our party time in a rail car, then took a mile or so ride on a train and ended the day exploring the museum.  Since I am not into trains I thought it would be pretty boring but was totally wrong!  Since we had it in December they had a huge train garden display too.  We all had a great time from ages 3-63!!  I felt bad that I only made him a basic cake but he didn't mind and since I was working on a 3 tiered surprise birthday cake for my dad's party that was the next day I couldn't bare to take on more!

Rapunzel Tangled Cake

    I adore my nieces and nephews so when my niece was turning 5 and wanted a princess castle cake I was very happy to make it.  About a week before the party I touched base with her mom and found out she wanted not just a castle but Rapunzel's tower with Rapunzel in it, I was somewhat intimidated!!  Some how I managed, although transporting it to Port Discovery in downtown Baltimore was very stressful!  Everything is 100% edible except the figurines and the PVC through the center.  This is by far my favorite cake to date.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Cake

     I made this cake for my youngest son, Alexander's, 3rd birthday party.  We went back and forth between Thomas the Train and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse but finally he decided on Mickey for this year's theme.  The cake has 9" and 6" rounds covered in dark chocolate ganache and satin ice vanilla fondant.  The 9" cake is double chocolate with chocolate cream cheese frosting and the 6" cake is very vanilla with cherry cream cheese filling. 
     The cupcakes are red velvet and strawberry with Mickey fondant toppers.  The favors were dark chocolate Mickey Mouse pops.  This is my 4th Mickey themed cake and every time I find something different to do and something new to love!

Twins 10th Birthday Cakes-Puppy and Soccer Cakes

     Friends of ours have twins, Sammy and Kevin, that's turning 10 this weekend.  To celebrate I made a soccer and puppy cake.  

     The puppy cake is my double chocolate cake with dark chocolate ganache filling.  Sammy's favorite colors are aqua and pink so we incorporated those colors into the cake.  The cake has a pink dog collar around it.  This is the first time I made a 3D fondant dog.  I think he turned out rather cute! 

     Kevin's cake is a vanilla cake filled with vanilla buttercream.  His favorite colors, blue and green are well represented here.  This is also the first time I did a 3D soccer ball.  Happy birthday Sammy and Kevin!

40th Birthday Cake

     My best friend was turning 40 this week so I made this shopping bag cake for her. The cake has 3 2-layer sections. The bottom tier is double dark chocolate cake with orange-Grand Marnier buttercream, the middle layer was a vanilla cake with raspberry chambord buttercream and the top layer was cherry cake with a cherry kirsch buttercream.
Sorry for the poor quality photo, I have a 2 year old who always seems to find my camera, get the lens cover off and put his fingers all over it!

     Can you tell the birthday girl loves martini's, make-up and shopping??

Thomas The Train Cake

     I did this cake for a 2 year old that loves Thomas (as does every 2 year old boy that I know!) This cake has a 9" french vanilla with strawberry filling under a 6" double chocolate with vanilla buttercream filling. 
     My 2 year old cried, "Where's choo choo train cake?" for 3 days after the cake left my house.  I guess I know what he's getting for his next birthday!
