Roller Derby Cake

My same little derby friend needed a cake for her party, after her friends liked the cookies in school so much.  The cake was a surprise, and I kept texting her mom update pictures as I got the elements finished.

Peace, Love, and Cake

This was for a retirement party for a well loved and much to be missed psych nurse.  A gentle soul and a hippie at heart, this cake was right up her ally.  The top tier was chocolate with raspberry filling and vanilla butter cream.  The bottom tier was white cake with vanilla butter cream

The dove was hand modeled out of fondant.

Adventures in Sugarpaste.

Aria has been asking for a Ballerina cake for her birthday in December.  And she does not want ballet shoes on the top, she wants an honest to goodness ballerina.  So I’ve been practicing my figure modeling, and I think we have a winner.  When she saw a picture of a mermaid on my computer (while I was looking at figure modeling tips and guides) she asked me to make one.  So of course I did.

Mermaid - fondant

By the time we were done, she had changed her mind entierly.  She now wants a mermaid cake for her birthday.  I’ll be interested to see what she finally settles on, since I feel like I could handle a ballerina if that’s what she really wants.
