Brown & Teal Wedding Shower Cake

I made this simple cake for a wedding shower my daughter gave for a friend.

It's just a simple 8" and 10" two-tier frosted with buttercream with silk flower and ribbon garnishes. The "H" was a foam letter I picked up at Michael's. I painted it with brown craft paint, added "diamonds" and inserted small dowel rods cut to about three inches long into the bottom of each leg.

A very simple cake that anyone can make!

The cake flavors were strawberry with a cream cheese filling and chocolate with chocolate hazelnut filling.

Graduation Cake

I made this cake for our Ozark Christian Academy graduates this past weekend.

There were four graduates, so I put their names on the four sides of the cake. I also put OCA on four sides under their names so they could turn the cake to take pics of their side and have it look like the front of the cake. It worked pretty well.

The cake flavors were strawberry, white and chocolate. I used a pre-made whipped frosting.

The graduation caps and stars were made of scrapbook paper and attached to 18 gauge wire.

Congrats, OCA Seniors!!

Apple Laptop/Computer Cake

My son-in-law needed a cake for a going away party at his office. She is apparently their computer techie, thus the computer cake!!

I made a sheet cake, iced it and covered it with gray tinted fondant. I used a cookie cutter to cut out the apple, then modified it so that it would resemble the Apple emblem. All the add ons are made of fondant.
