Dachshund dog and pillow cake for an 8 yr. old

Today's cake was such a fun one to make. For ages I've been wanting to do a pillow cake and try my hand at quilting fondant. Lucky for me the birthday girl also wanted a cake topper and I got to try out some new techniques there too. 

The cake is a simple 8" square chocolate and vanilla cake carved into a pillow shape. The larger dog was sculpted in styrofoam and fondant while the puppy was purely fondant.

If you would like to see a sequence shot of the cake being made you can find it on my Flickr account here.

Birthday cake for a 9 yr old. boy

Today's cake was thanks to a repeat customer. I had created this Mod Monkey cake for a little girl turning two and her big brother thought that it was so yummy that he requested I make something special for him too. 

The birthday party was going to be at an air park so the cake was created to compliment the theme. The figurine and stars were made from sugar paste. The trampoline was created in vanilla cake that had been covered in buttercream, black fondant and blue modelling chocolate.

Birthday Cakes for 8 yr. old twins

Today's cakes were an order for some fraternal twins turning eight. Two separate birthday parties called for two cakes. The birthday boy is currently obsessed with bugs so I created a chocolate devil's food cake covered in buttercream grass. All the bugs were handmade out of fondant. The birthday girl's cake was a traditional girly cake with buttercream ruffles and fondant daisies.
 Happy birthday twinsies!
