Miss E's Doodle Birthday Cake

Miss E's birthday was this past Sunday.  Because it was Thanksgiving weekend it was jammed packed with family get togethers so we didn't plan a party for her yet.  We started her birthday with a special breakfast of her choosing,

Chocolate chip Eggos, vanilla bean ice cream, whipped cream, bacon, Skor bits, and cherries on top.

For lunch we were going to a restaurant with Mr T's family for our Thanksgiving and Miss E birthday celebration.  I couldn't go without a cake for her but I didn't want it to be a crazy cake so I made a 6" chocolate cake with buttercream filling.  I covered it in white fondant and added the sentiment.  Then I handed Miss all of the edible markers for her to decorate as she wanted.

She thought it was a great idea and had fun decorating it.  I just added little dots of colour when she was finished.

The final result.  She did a great job.  The waitresses at the restaurant thought it was pretty cool which made Miss E's day.

Baby Shower Cake

One of the teams on my floor had me make a cake for one of their co-workers going on off on mat leave earlier this month.  She doesn't know the sex of the baby so I made it as neutral as possible.  This was an 8" two layer chocolate cake.  I just used some circle cutters to make the polka dots and the lettering.

The unofficial shot of the cake I caught Willow trying to get at the cake. She got pretty close before I shooed her away.

Toilet Paper Roll Birthday Cake

This was a fun cake to do.  At first I really wasn't sure how it would turn out.  In the end I thought it was hilarious.

So, I started off with an 8" two layer square vanilla base tier.  The filling was raspberry mascarpone mousse.  It is so good!  Then I covered it using the grass tip to look like carpet with buttercream icing.  I would have used the filling but I didn't drain out the seeds and they would have clogged up the tip.  It wouldn't have been pretty.  Instead I dyed it to match the filling as close as possible to make pink shag carpet.
For the toilet paper roll I did a 6" 3 layer cake and covered it in fondant.  I added an extra piece of fondant to make it look like the paper was unraveling.  On the top I added a black circle of fondant to look like the empty space from the roll.  Lastly, I took a toothpick and spun the cake around to make the indentations of a "roll" of toilet paper.

My Little Pony Pull Apart Cupcake Cake

For this "cake" I made two dozen vanilla cupcakes and arranged them on the cake board in the shape of the rainbow and clouds.  To make sure the cupcakes didn't move I added a dab of icing on the bottom of each cupcake.

It's not that often that I get to dye icing, or six different colours at once.  You can get a really good bicep workout,

Miss E was kind enough to lend her figurines as models for the picture.  The clouds piped out perfectly.  The rainbow was a little more difficult.  Next time I would put a base coat on the cupcakes to help keep the top coat more level and easier to pipe over.
