Love To Make Cakes

Over the past 7 years my love for making a cake has grown and each time a party arises I love coming up with an idea and a theme for the party.  

I just wanted to show you a couple of my cakes I have done throughout the years.  

This was my very first cake that I made back in 2005 for my sons 1st birthday.   It is funny looking back on this I was so proud that I got these towers to look that good, lol. 

Baby Shower Shoe Cake ~ I still love this one I made it for my sister in-law and long time friend.  It was my first real attempt at fondant and it turned out to be a hit. 

Baby Shower Winter Cake ~ I made this one for my friend we threw her a winter/ snowflake themed baby shower.

Pretty Pink Polka Dot Cake ~ This One was made for a friends little girl on her first birthday

                                      Rock Climbing Cake ~ 
This was a last minute cake I made for a friend of the family who was having a rock climbing party for their 7 year old son.  

 Beyblade Cake ~ My son is obsessed with Beyblades so of course we had to have a beyblade cake.  The logo was printed off the computer in mirror and then traced on wax paper and put in the fridge to harden in order to get on the cake. It was a hit at the party. 

Clown Cake ~ This one was made for both of my sons on their 6th & 3rd birthday.  I had just taken the Wilton Cake course at Michaels and they showed us how to make this.  It was a really fun cake to make. 

                               Jungle Theme ~ This was the first time I had made a cake with figures on it.  I spent hours online learning the best way to do these figures and the problem I have is once I start a cake I have a hard time stopping.  I just keep on adding but I think it is the little details that make a difference.  This one was for my youngest son's 1st birthday celebration.

High Heel Shoe Cake ~ Okay Okay I know it is not perfect but it was my first attempt at this kind of a cake and it was a good thing for the fondant tissue paper to cover up some of the mess ups. 

Wedding Cake ~ My Mother In-law got remarried a few months ago and asked me if I could do the wedding cake and how is a girl to say no to that.  The theme of the wedding was winter wonderland so I made the cake with the blue and white to go with the theme.  

Elvis Cake ~ This cake was made for my dad to celebrate his 60th birthday, we had a 1950's themed party for him.  As a kid growing up Elvis was always playing on the stereo and in fact I was named after Lisa Marie, so I found it a very fitting cake for him.

I hope you enjoy these cakes and that they give you some inspiration.

These look great! I've always been intimidated by fondant. My favorite is your jungle theme cake...my 2 year old, Noah, would looooove the monkey and the elephant! :) I'm your newest follower.

Hi Amy, I was a little bit afraid to try fondant but I found a good marshmellow recipie that I love to work with and I watched a ton of videos. The best part about it is if you mess up you just cover it with something. I would recommend trying the fondant you will love it. Thank you for following me.

Awesome cakes! I always get inspired when I see fabulous cakes, but after many attempts, I've accepted that baking and decorating cakes is not my forte! I'm thankful for bakers like you so my kids won't have to suffer humiliation from my creations! LOL

Hi Libby, Thank you so much. Honestly if you would have seen some of my first cakes you would laugh. They have come a long way from those. Welcome to my blog

Love the beyblade cake. I have to bake a beyblade cake for my son. I loved how you transferred the logo on the cake. Can you please do a tutorial/ any instructions on that? I would really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.
