my spot

I'm not by any means a professional, but I'm making an attempt to have some fun and my idea of fun is making cakes and decorating them, or painting canvas. I found a great website that is full of ideas and now I've started to try to make stuff for my friends and family. This is my little corner of the internet to post some pics of what I've done so far and those sites full of ideas for future things to do

A friend of mine has a son that's a firefighter and asked if I would make him a firefighter themed cake. Originally she wanted a cake in the shape of a firetruck, but when I googled them, they were either incredibly detailed or very childish looking. We found one with the fire hydrant and hose and I added the boots and his helmet. Need the logo for the front of the helmet but otherwise all done! I noticed in the photo the cracking in the icing under the weight of the hydrant - quickly added more grass growing down the side of the cake. Fingers crossed it makes it until morning for the delivery!!

Pretty in Pink

Princess cake for a friend of mine - her little girl is turning 6 and my youngest (also 6) was thoroughly disgusted with this cake - all pink and stuff.

little orange

Made a cake for a co-worker for a Christening. I found a swirl cake that I was wanting to do and when she saw the pic she loved it. She wanted a little bit of orange incorporated into the cake.

It's creamcheese and chocolate cake marble. Little on the heavy side but the fluffy creamcheese icing should offset that.
