The Cake Event

So I promised pictures. Here is the picture of the cake/cupcakes she asked me to make.


I know right? The cutest ever. The quality of the photos I have is crappy. But...whatdyado? I would have asked my super awesome really good at taking photos Landee to help me out, but she already had her hands full with soccer games/football games/and normal Saturday madness. Next one tho? Please? Anyway .......

The full tower. What you don't see are the cheerios I used underneath the hippos and elephant to elevate the cupcake a little forward. Looked much better.

The zebra. I waited until absolute last to make this little guy. He terrified me. He took nearly and hour to complete. And see that stripe behind him with the zebra stripes on it? That took quite a long time too. I picked off teensy little pieces of brown fondant, rolled them in my hand and then pressed them onto the strip before using a little knife to cut the top and bottoms off to make them level. I'm sad to say that I used two different frostings too. You can tell the difference in the photo. One is a decorator frosting, less shiny. The other is a yummy frosting from the store that I colored and piped on.


The happy parents who threw the most awesome 1st birthday party any little girl has ever had. Hooray! She said everyone loved the cupcakes. It was by no means a perfect execution. But I think for what she paid me, it turned out pretty darn good.

That cake was for a one-year-old? Wow. Well, my soon-to-be-eight-year-old is getting a 9 X 13 box cake mix with some frosting. You're an awesome friend and an awesome cake maker (for lack of a better term). Hope you were compensated for your wonderfully hard work!

WOW!!!! You did FANTASTIC!! I wouldn't even be brave enough to try something like that! If you are going to start doing this-have you heard of the cricut cake?? Check it out, it might be worth it and save you a little time! Won't help with the fondant animals but maybe the rest!

It turned out awesome (as I knew it would)!! You're like a sculptor. Your preferred material just happens to be frosting.

If you were in the Hunger Games, you could survive by frosting yourself to look like the ground.
