A childhood friend of mine asked if I could make her a cake for her mothers 60th birthday.  She already had the design style in mind and sent me some great pictures to try and recreate.  After (finally) finding the paisley style cutters I did my best to replicate the design she had sent me.

One of my very dear friends, Teri, just graduated from UCF with her DOCTORS in Clinical Psychology (DOCTORS, did you get that, she's a DOCTOR!!)  To celebrate the extra special occasion her husband asked if I could bake her a cake.  After brain storming for a bit I decided to make her a book-shaped cake with a diploma on top.

I hand painted the pattern on the book and although you can't see it in the pictures I pressed lines into the sides of the cake to make it look like the book had pages.

So once again, congratulations Dr. Teri!! :)  Can't wait till you move back to O-town!

(Thanks for Lisa and Teri for the pix!!)

This cake was fully designed by the client (aka the Birthday Girl).  After e-mailing back and forth for a bit she decided on this design, a leopard print diamond shaped cake.

This is a very unique design and I was glad that I was able to make her vision a reality.  Using color gels I was able to create edible "paint" and I hand painted the leopard print design onto the tan fondant.  Overall I am very pleased with the print design.

My latest order was for a wife who wanted to surprise her husband with a Superman inspired birthday cake.  Her husband is a huge Superman fan but he's also a business professional by trade.  I decided to incorporate the two and make a "business man by day, superhero by night" cake.
