Dora the Explorer cake

Dora cake for a three-year-old's birthday. Chocolate cake with buttercream icing. I copied a design I found here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/41155467@N06/3855804535/) but used buttercream instead of fondant. The cake was lots of fun to do, but I must've used a dozen icing bags for all the different colors!

Buttermilk pancakes

These were just too yummy not to photograph! Buttermilk pancakes made with wheat germ and honey, cooked in an iron skillet with butter. Mmm, good.

Cornelli lace & roses

I had navy blue icing left from the Air Force cake, so I thought I'd practice the Cornelli lace technique.

Bread, Bread, Bread!

Loaves of antique white bread (the best bread I have EVER put in my mouth) and white wheat egg bread.

Air Force cake

I made this cake for a send off for an airman getting ready to start basic training. It's a light white cake with vanilla buttercream. All decorations are fondant.

Baptism cake

This cake was for a church gathering to celebrate the recent baptisms they had. It's chocolate cake with almond buttercream, royal icing roses, and buttercream flowers.

Fondant roses

Mom and I made these roses for our cake class this week. They're made with fondant. We couldn't believe how real they looked!
