My brother was turning 16 and seeing how I recently started making cakes and made everyone else one, I knew I had to make him something great too. I knew he was into music so my idea was an iPod. Then my mom tells me he told her he wanted a Gaga cake for his sweet 16.

I was overwhelmed with the amount of different looks of Gaga. I know who she is but never sat down and watched her videos. So the night before I made the cake I sat down and watched some. Then I saw it, her Paparazzi video. Her crazy shades and funky yellow outfit. I knew I had to go with that.

The Gaga head and torso topper are made of Rice Krispies then covered in melted vanilla (kind of like making molding chocolate) colored to give skin color. Was my first time doing it and I LOVE how well it molds! So much better than fondant, will be my new tool in cakes!!!

The Homemade Lady Gaga Birthday Cake itself is regular yellow cake, but I dyed it rainbow colors and made a rainbow cake.

Coolest MGMT Electric Feel Cake

Homemade MGMT Electric Feel Cake

Homemade MGMT Electric Feel Cake

I was inspired by the MGMT 'Electric Feel' music clip and decided to theme my 18th birthday party around the eclectic, enchanted garden style party depicted in the video.

The MGMT Electric Feel Cake consists of two large, round chocolate cakes and one smaller round sponge cake stacked on top of each other and covered in green fondant to represent the hill the party in the video clip takes place on.

There's a pool of blue jelly cut into the top layer and out of it is a cooking skewer supporting a makeshift-moon with rainbow ribbon coming out of it in an attempt to mimic the 'moon blood' that spills in the clip (Really, watch it, it's an awesome clip)

Then the cake is covered in assorted sprinikles and fondant stars / flowers.

It looked awesome when all the sparklers and candles were lit (less so in full light when you can see all the rough bits) and was my second attempt at using fondant.

More practice necessary but I tried!

Coolest Grateful Dead Steel Your Face Cake 3

Grateful Dead Steel Your Face Cake

Grateful Dead Steel Your Face Cake

I made this Grateful Dead Steel Your Face cake for my dad's 50th birthday. I wanted it to be something special and since he's a big Dead Head I wanted it to reflect that!

This cake was made by baking two sheet cakes. One for the bottom layer, which was kept whole, and one for the top layer which was cut into the shape I needed. I made the layers different layers so there was a variety of cake for our guests.

First I spread buttercream frosting over the entire thing for a smooth foundation. Then I covered just the top layer of the cake with white Fondant. I printed a picture off the internet for my original & used it to eyeball my design. I outlined all the larger features with black fondant, and painted the details on using a mixture of sweetened condensed milk & food coloring.

Everyone loved it!

I'd really like to make a similar cake for my boyfriend who's birthday is in the beginning of March. I was wondering where you printed your Steely from.

AWESOME CAKE!

Coolest Jim Morrison Cake

I made this Jim Morrison cake for my mom's 50th birthday. I figured it would be easier with fondant but we both hate the flavor of it, so I decided to make it with couverture chocolate with which I had no experience whatsoever. It wasn't as tough as I had expected, just made a stencil out of cardboard and bought one of those food coloring sprays, covered the cake with white chocolate and proceed to paint, that was it.

I hurried a bit through the process since I was running out of time, now I know it is very very important to let the chocolate harden before placing the stencil and just assuming it won't stick to the stencil, believe me, it will. Besides that it was very simple. It's a very plain cake but I think it didn't turn out that bad and she just loved it, she even cried a little.
