I made these cupcakes to serve at my niece's first birthday. I used melted candy to make the heads and other candies on the cupcakes. To make heads I used Wilton's Candy Wafer Melting Tray filled with melted candy tinted fleshtone. When cooled i placed them on wax paper smooth side down. Using melted candy I drew hair and faces on to "heads". You can achieve the stand up hair by making sure you connect it to the head before the candy has cooled. It will lift easily from the paper once cooled. I made the remaining candies using a mold. Position atop frosted cup cakes. I displayed these on a Wilton cupcake stand.
A friend asked me to bake a cake for her daughter's birthday - the 8 year old told me she wanted chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and she wanted a tall one with layers. So, I baked 6 - 9" round cakes, straightened them, then cut 2-6" rounds out and 2-4" rounds. I put them in the freezer until I was ready to frost. I made chocolate frosting, stacking and frosting the layers. then, I did the shell border around the bottom of each different size layer. I added edible beads purchased at Michaels, then added flowers made out of fondant on the top of the cake.
I made this cake for my grandad's 85th birthday! He loves chocolate more than anybody else I know!!! It's 2 10-inch layers of chocolate cake iced in chocolate buttercream. I then bought one of those variety packs of mini Hershey bars (milk chocolate, dark chocolate, Mr. Goodbar and Krackle) and completely covered the sides in those. I put Reese's cups around the top and put a chocolate shell border along both sides of them. The "Happy Birthday" is the only thing that isn't chocolate on the cake! I had to do it in vanilla so it would show up!
It was very easy to make i just used a regular pan to make the bottom (the field) and for the top (the football) i used a shaped football cake pan. For the frosting i used german chocolate frosting with green food coloring. for the lines and numbers i used white frosting gel. i then used the candles to make it look like a statem. came out great. everyone loved it and i was asked to make cakes for other events. This cake was for my little brothers 11th birthday.
My son was turning 3 and he is a huge Colts fan so I played around with a couple of different designs for a Colt cake.
This was supposed to be a jersey and a cap, but the second cakes that I made did not separate correctly so it ended up being one flavor instead of two. But it turned out pretty good! I used just a plain round and a half of a ball pan, I used fondant (of course) and also I painted with the food coloring
My three year old son is in love with everything monster jam...especially Grave Digger! I made this cake using a 15x9 cake pan that I cut into rectangles and formed into Grave Digger. Crueller donuts covered in magic shell make the wheels and I did all the decorating with just frosting and the tiniest tip I could find! Lastly, I covered the cake board with graham crackers to simulate dirt.
