Anonymous asked: DO U HV STEP BY STEP PHOTO TO DO THIS CAKE.I REALLY LIKE IT N WANNA LEARN DO THIS FOR MY FRIEND WHO LOVE KITTY SO MUCH.TQ

No unfortunately I kinda forget to take pictures of the process and by the time I remember I am almost finished:( But her body was made out of cake and her head was sculpted out of rice crispy treats. I covered that with a thin layer of butter cream and then covered her with the appropriate coloured fondants. 

Anonymous asked: I am so happy to find out such a useful information. Could you please tell me what the ratio of glucose and water should be. Thanx and highly obliged.

I don’t have an exact ratio but like I said in my post about it you just have to barely saturate it and then dissolve all the lumps over heat and its usually good to go. 

Made my boyfriend a pretty sriracha cake for his birthday. He is a celiac so the entire cake is make out of gluten free rice crispy treat. Lots of fun to make, though not my tidiest work. I piped all the white on with royal icing. 

Birthday cake I made for a friend.

All the decorations are made from gum paste, royal icing, sugar and fondant. The vase on top is made out of pressed sugar and covered in fondant. I hand painted porcelain inspired flowers onto gum paste and then framed them with piped royal icing. Once that dried I painted the icing gold to create the look of an antique frame.The gold accents on the top tier were all created individually by hand and then painted gold. I used gum paste for the fabric effects and piped the beaded border out of royal icing.

The only mold I used was for the border on the vase. All the painting was done with petal dust mixed with vodka. Overall a very time consuming cake but I really enjoyed creating it.

Expresso French Macarons and disgustingly good peanut butter melts :) I made them as a gift for a friend.

Swan Lake Ballet Cake

This cake was super fun to do because there is nothing more satisfying than painting things gold. It is a chocolate cake with vanilla butter cream covered in fondant. I made the ballerina out of modeling chocolate and did all the piping with royal icing. The little roses are gumpaste though and I used gold dust and lemon extract to paint on the gold accents. Love this cake it makes me happy and I really enjoyed having an excuse to do some string work even though its not really in style right now.

I had to do a horse themed cake that incorporated western and english riding as well as wildflowers. This was my interpretation, it was really a cake out of my comfort zone but I did my best and this is the final result. Overall i’m happy with it and its a formula I could easily change and customize to a different theme or colors.

It was fun playing with the tooled leather look and learning about the style to do the panels. All the flowers are handmade with gum paste and the panels and horse bit are modeling chocolate. I hand carved all the detail on and then added an antique finish with dark brown food coloring. I figure it will be good to have in my portfolio since I will be going down to Texas for a bit and Texans like horses right?

Cake decorated with modeling chocolate. The cake was painted pink then I used small individual cutters to create the lace effect on a separate piece of modeling chocolate to place over top. I love doing patterns like this and got carried away by adding 2 more tiers made of only modeling chocolate. The blue was was painted on the base of the  smallest one to help highlight the lace on the second one. It kinda reminds me of early 90’s household decor when people stenciled everything.

Working on gum paste figurines. Before and after the face is painted on. Her head is sitting on what will soon become her body.

Ivory wedding cake design inspired by Marie Antoinette . I kept the color scheme very simple to focus on the different textures. Also fewer colors makes it more reminiscent of a wedding dress which tend to be fairly monochromatic.  Fondant cake decorated with gum paste details, I really enjoyed manipulating the gum paste to create the fabric effect.

Cute little cake I made in the course I am currently taking. Had lots of fun with the glitter. It was inspired by the birthday card I sent my sister this year.

Finished product not as detailed as I would have liked it but I had limited time. I would like to do another cake in this style someday that was really all out but for now I gave this to my aunt and she will be sharing it with her book club. i am sure they will enjoy it.
