Ninja Turtle Cake

This is a cake for Wade's third birthday, which features all four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. They are depicted on a city street surrounding a scary blue monster, from Wade's favorite movie, TMNT, coming out of a manhole. It is a marble cake with chocolate fudge filling and vanilla frosting. The characters, weapons and buildings were all hand-molded from fondant, gum paste, and icing.

Happy "Rattenbaby" Cake

This cake was for a baby shower, and the inscription is a play on the recipient's last name (Rattenbury). The ladybugs, snails, bumblebees, glow worms, butterflies, and ducks, made from fondant and royal icing, create a whimsical world surrounding a pea pod. The cake itself is composed of rich chocolate layers filled with vanilla cream and coated in chocolate fudge frosting.
