Fun with fondant

Just having some fun with some cupcakes I am donating to a bakesale. A friend's daughter helps organize it and they give the procedes to charity. A great excuse to try a few new things. More to follow in the next couple days.


My mother requested some gardening cupcakes we saw in a cupcake book as a thank you to the ladies who helped her with a recent garden show. They turned out ok, but if I did them again I would use a better icing that didn't run after dipped.

A first birthday.

My friend Nancy asked for a Winnie the Pooh first birthday cake that made it obvious that it was a first birthday. This is what I made for her. I am very pleased with how it came out.

My first three tier cake.

I decided to tackle a three tier cake and a topsy turvy cake all at once. Unfortunately the cake was a bit moist for the carving, but overall I am happy with how it turned out.
