Cleveland Browns Drum Set Cake!

I created this birthday cake for a drummer who hails from Cleveland! As everyone knows, Cleveland Rocks!

The bass drum and the smaller drums are Baker's Cakes Chocolate Cake with Double Chocolate Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting and are covered with rolled chocolate fontant on the sides and vanilla rolled fondant on the drumming surface. I dusted the chocolate Fondant with edible gold dust to create that sparkly shimmer that drums have! I also used edible silver dust to create a chrome effect on the drums. The cymbals were made with sugar paste and the drum sticks were made with fondant!

American Girl Doll Jewelry Cake!

This cake was created for a birthday party that combined the birthday girl's love of American Girl Dolls and a great party activity of jewelry making! The figures were inspired by the birthday girl's American Girl Doll look-a-like and the other figure was styled after the newest doll Kanani. I worked really had to add as much detail in the faces to make them as realistic as possible, including eye lids on the blonde doll, eye lashes on both dolls and carefully shaped teeny tiny eyes, noses, and mouths. The elegant "pearl" necklaces were also a big hit with the girls at the party!
