I began my gingerbread house in class. I baked the pieces and brought them home with me. It took several days to decorate with royal icing and another few days to assemble. The windows on the front are made out of melted Jolly Ranchers. The railing is made out of spaghetti. It was quite challenging especially the porch and gazebo. My favorite parts are the bay windows, the 2nd floor windows and their flower boxes and Mr. Snowman.

This cake was made for a Chargers fan. The face mask is made out of fondant/gumpaste mix held with toothpicks. The helmet is strawberry cake with vanilla filling. The bolts and logos are colored using edible markers.
I made this cake for my friend Patty's dad. She wanted something that included the grandchildren. So I made a gift representing each grandchild surrounding their grandpa. Each gift is made out of rice krispy treats covered in fondant. Grandpa is made out of fondant and his chair is made out of rice krispy treats covered in fondant. It is yellow cake filled with coffee bean filling made by my sister :)

This is my first wedding cake. It was for my brother's coworker. She wanted the cake to have a quilt pattern and yellow flowers. It was a bit nerve wrecking since so many people were going to see it...400 +! I was very happy with the final outcome!

Alma requested this cake for her baby shower. It is a Wilton cake. The animals were fun and easy to make. Assembling the cake was difficult since the animals were fragile and started cracking. In the end it was well worth it. The mommy-to-be loved it!

This is my first vegan cake! I was a little scared since I am fond of eggs. It turned out quite yummy. The birthday girl, Adriane wanted a vegan cake and had no theme in mind. This summer she worked as a lifeguard so my boyfriend which is her uncle thought it would be cool to make a pool.
Roman turned 4 and wanted a super hero cake. He gave me a long list of everyone he wanted but I had to shorten it to 4: Superman, Incredible Hulk, Batman and Spiderman are all made of fondant and details were drawn on with edible ink. My favorite super hero is Superman, it's the hair ;)
