I decided to be creative and make a diaper cake for a friend of mine for her baby shower. She was having a girl, so I decided to make it pink. I used a whole pack of 46 diapers, noonies, baby lotion, baby powder, baby spoons and baby shoes , which was the topper on the cake. I spent an hour making it, and It really was not hard, as long as you put your mind to it. When I arrived at the baby shower, everybody was so amazed about how creative I was at making the diaper cake because they have never heard of such a thing. It was the center of attention, and It encouraged me to make more. I even added a tutu to the bottom of the cake, so that when her baby girl would arrive, she would be able to use the tutu to wear for pictures. I have started making diaper cakes as a hobby and I am glad that I am able to have the imagination that I do.
Homemade Shrek´s theme birthday (trying to copy the movie) cake

Well, I think my niece is the biggest Shrek and Fiona´s fan. She turned 3 years old last friday (08/03/2012) and she asked me to make a cake just as the movie, so she could smash it!! I found a picture of the cake online, then tried to make a good job!! Semms she loved it!! I did a classic white cake filled with chocolate ganache and cherries. The cover was with white sugar paste, royal icing in rainbow collors and green cristal sugar for the face. The face details also made with colored sugar paste. And here´s the picture, the cake and she trying to smash it!! We could stop her little hand just in time!! She loved it so much that she started to cry when the Shrek´s year was cut in a slice of the cake... But i told her I would do another one so she was OK!! I hope you all enjoy!! Thanks!!

For my son's 4th birthday he was obsessed with Super hero's so I had a friend of mine make him his own super hero logo like Captain America. I took the image printed it in reverse on my computer. Put wax paper over the picture and outlined it with icing. Then put a payer of butter cream on the back. Freeze. When ready just flip the image in the cake an there you have it. If you want to learn more just go to you tube and search butter cream transfer. I learned that way. I cut out the star from fondant and the sparkler looking things are just sprays from the craft store.
It's Pat my bosses Birthday, and he's turning 40! I had to make him this awesome tombstone! Start with a 13X9 cake, shave the top edges to mimic an old fashioned tombstone. Take white frosting, I made buttercream, so I could get the perfect consistency, add about 8-10 drops of black food coloring to get desired shade of grey. Then go to town, draw grass a the bottom, Write on it whatever you want, and as a final touch, some sugar flowers. Looks like his youth is pushing up dasies!!! Have fun!
It was in the 90's for a week straight so, the frosting could only be worked with for about 45 minutes at a time. We're in New England and we never ever get weather like that in early June. Lucky it wasn't for a party or other special occasion. It was just for my grandson and me and we loved it very much and didn't care that we had to wait. He really appreciated the effort, even at 3 years old.
