by Karen
(Cambridge, New Zealand )


Finished and submitted for uploading the same day this cake was finished
A friend who is turning 60 ran a disco and is a sound tech at a local theatre so what better way to celebrate then a
2 Turntable and mixing board cake

the base cakes are chocolate cakes
2 of these with the turnatbles on are made with melted chocolate and the one with the mixing board is a lighter
chocolate sponge recipe - we covered the cakes with a chocolate gnash type icing first (to full in the holes from air bubbles when baking!) the used that to glue on the fondant
the records are moulded chocolate, then my husbands scratched out the grooves - ok he made the records while I put on the raised turntable platforms.. the raised turntable platform are also melted chocolate cakes - this time with white chocolate rather then dark / milk chocolate
I put a basic white icing around the turntable then covered with little silver ball decorations (yes the whole cake apart from the base is edible

the players arms are shaped form white fondant and liquorish logs
the mixing board is made from liquorish - the black bits... and coloured icing - writing icing that you get in a pen its great for the little details !
Quick note about the cakes ..
Any bits of the cake that are white have been shaped from white/royal icing and the black is liquorish!

Brayton's Work Zone

This cake was made for my son's 2nd birthday. We did a Bob the Builder/construction theme. I made a chocolate cake using the recipe off the back of the Hershey's Cocoa can, which I've used and liked before. I made the cake in 12 in. square and 8 in. square pans. I broke the smaller cake and set it on top to serve as a "hill" that was being demolished. Using construction toys we found at Walmart for $20 I decorated the rest of the cake. For the "dirt" spilling out of the hill we mixed mint Oreos and Nilla Waffers in our food chopper. It came out nicely and looked about like potting soil. I used Wilton's butter cream recipe to ice the cake. The "rocks" are chunks of brown sugar. We had a lot of fun with this cake and it turned out quite nicely.

Boutonniere Cake

by Tabitha Morris
(Canandaigua, NY)


My friend was getting married and we decided to have and combined bridal shower and bachelorette party. She really is not in to flowers and super frilly girly stuff. I looked on line a lot for some ideas and decided to go with a boutonniere. I baked a half sheet cake using two cake mixes. I then used blue butter cream to create a base coat of icing. I then used more white butter cream for the boutonniere. I used an off set spatula to spread the white icing. I used a writing tip for the pink details around the edge and a flat tip for the pink ribbon bow. It was a really straightforward cake but it was a big hit. You could easily cut a half-sheet cake into the shape of the boutonniere too for a little different effect.
