The first cake was a 3-D Dog made as a surprise grooms cake and was made to look like the groom's dog. I was able to utilize edible markers to replicate the dog's collar. The cake part is sitting on a wooden platform to make the bottom of the dog elevated from the ground. I used modeling chocolate and rice krispies to help form the curves of the dog. I added fondant, petal dust, and green frosting grass to finish off the cake. Overall this cake was really fun and challenging to make, but so worth it.
This last cake was made for a very special someone...my dad. This year was his 48th birthday and the only point in his an my life where I would be exactly half his age. My dad likes bobcat skid loaders and uses them at work and at home, so I decided to make a cake to look like one. My dad requested his favorite combo of chocolate cake with buttercream frosting for the flavors. I utilized my edible markers (handy little things...) for the cage, presents, and numbers/words on the cake. The numbers on the side of the cake are my dad's age plus the letter B. I decided to go with forks on the cake instead of a bucket because I thought it would be neat to have the skid loader hauling presents. When it came time to cut the cake, I put candles where the exhaust went, and my dad got a kick out of that. All in all my dad enjoyed the cake and it was quite tasty....Happy Birthday Dad!
