Hello there! Thanks for visiting my sweet blog today. I've not been very busy with cakes the last week, so this gives me a chance to showcase some of the ones I missed posting about last year.
With all the snow outside, and spring around the corner, I thought I'd share the two flower-filled fairy cakes that I did for two sweet little girls. The first one is modeled after this cake by bubolinkata. Her cakes and cookies are AMAZING!!!! I loved the design of the cake and the fairy's dress, but since this cake had to travel across state lines, I knew my fairy would need to be sitting down.
Craftsy's Cake Topper Techniques Class to make the clothes and hair. Painting faces still gets me nervous. I mean, what fairy wants two different size eyes, or crooked lips? I have learned that a little lemon extract can be used as an "eraser" in emergencies.
Every woodland fairy needs a tree trunk house to live in, so I used fondant logs to shape the outline of the window and door along with the roots, and then draped more fondant over the top and used a veining tool to add lots of bark details. After I took this picture, I added some lighter fondant to the top for the inner rings and did some shading with petal dust to give it a little life.
Till next time...

It seems that Minnie Mouse is quite popular with little ones right now. Here's three that I've done in the last 6 months. The first one I was given a picture and asked to replicate, the other two I was given free reign to design what I wanted. I think the middle one is my favorite, but I like the "bloomers" peeking out of the bottom one too. ;o) Which one do you like best?
Till next time...
God's love and blessings!
