This Building Bricks cake was an adventure that my 9-yr old son and I went on. He is a huge collector and really enjoys all the food challenge shows on TV. So, when he came to me with the idea to do it, of course I said yes!
I gave him the pre-colored fondant that he cut out with a pizza cutter into rectangles for the sides of the cake. He then used that to make the smaller pieces on the outer edge to look like it connected the side to the top.
The larger "Best Building Bricks" connector center pieces are marshmallow treats covered with the same fondant and also that fondant rolled into the studs.
I baked two 13x9 white cakes and stacked them with a milk chocolate icing between. I also put a homemade buttercream icing on the outer layer before placing the pre-rolled fondant on. I knew we wouldn't actually be eating our (personal choice)fondant and that was for that reason. The cake tasted GREAT!
I truly feel that my Ben really showed off his mad skills and as for me that has never worked with a piece of fondant at all,(and then it be that big!) it turned out way better than we could have ever hoped! Everyone really thought it was clever and enjoyed it.
A friend came to me and asked if I could make her son's 1st birthday cake. It took awhile but I came up with a unique Play Block Birthday Cake just for him. I took 6 13*9 cakes and added different icing in between each layer. then added fondant over the top and created the blocks according to what he liked, Elmo and crayons and found candles that had Elmo and friends and added real crayons to the cake so the kids could color after we had the cake.
ALSO not in photo was his personal Elmo cake. That was carved from a 13*9 cake and just frosted it to look like Elmo. The cake was a hit. I found that sucker sticks helped to hold the top cake up and stabilized the individual cakes.
This Girl Baby Block Shower Cake is 11X14 vanilla cake with 4 - 2X2 chocolate baby blocks. The top of the blocks spell "baby" and front spell "girl." Each block has different pictures such as bib, onesie, baby face and diaper pin. The blocks and cake are frosted with butter cream frosting. I used light pink, peach, yellow, light green, light purple, ivory and white frosting.
The pink booties and name are made from 1/2 fondant and 1/2 gumpaste. The circle the booties are sitting on is a 6 inch cardboard cake circle covered in purple 1/2 fondant and 1/2 gumpaste. I cut wax paper the size of the cardboard circle and put it under the cardboard so it can be saved.
My daughter wanted a OSU Buckeye Block O Birthday Cake for her birthday. I started with an 11x15 cake and cut off the sides to form the block O. The red icing was colored with Wilton paste (red red). I find that this makes the right color of red.
I printed a picture of Brutus off the internet, laminated it and placed it in the center of the O. The outlining was done with a star tip and I placed homemade peanut butter buckeyes around the edge of the cake for a more finished look!
