The Elvis Aaron Presley Cake

The Elvis cake we made for our friend Jackie's birthday this past weekend was quite a challenge! It was our hardest cake thus far. Half way through we were feeling skeptical that we could pull this cake off...but somehow we finished him and we were pleased with our portrayal of fat Elvis.

The Jesus Christ Cake

We really pushed ourselves this time . And we are pleased with the outcome. Our good friend, Korin asked us to do her birthday cake and she had a unique request.....Crucified Jesus. So we took the challenge and got to work. He is our favorite cake so far. So Happy Birthday Korin and Happy Birthday to Jesus!

The Basketball Cake

This cake was made as my nephew's birthday gift this year. Obviously, he is into basketball. He really loved it. And it was fun to make something boy-ish.

I guess it is my turn!

I figured I would just make my own birthday cake this year. If anything, it is more practice! And I thought it came out pretty cute.

The Turkey Cake

So, this was a big job! We were asked to make a Thanksgiving themed cake for my bosses work party. We were really excited to get started....I made a lot of cakes and we carved a pretty huge turkey. The little details kept us busy until the very last moment!
We think he's pretty cool. But we learned a bunch and know where his faults lay!
But, Hey! It's a learning process, right?!
We also got our next order. From our dear friends, Jeff and Liv. We can not wait to start on Liv's siamese cat head birthday cake! So, stay tuned for that!
I've added a new gadget to my growing cake making tool box. . .
A pasta machine! (Thanks mom for donating to Jana's Fun Cakes!)
So now I can roll out small pieces of fondant really smooth and even make thin strips, if I need to. Very excited about that!

The Party Skirt Cake

This was my first paid cake job! A party skirt cake for a 21 year old's birthday dinner. We had so much fun with the concept and execution. Probably the biggest cake we've made so far! So pleased with how it turned out.

The Guitar Cake

A Gibson Les Paul we made our dear friend Skot Gillies for his 30th surprise party.
