Smuggler's Cover Birthday Cake for Skip

Miss E has been going to Canadian Adventure Camp for the past 3 summers and has loved every minute of it.  So, when I was asked to make a birthday cake for the camp's owner, Skip, I was very happy to do so.  I knew Miss E would be thrilled too.

This cake was a 3 layer 8" carrot cake with cream cheese filling.  Cream cheese icing is not as sturdy as buttercream so I decided to cover it in fondant so I could have a much easier canvas to work with.  I decided to have some fun with painting the sides of the cake instead of decorating with fondant.

I love how the trees turned out.  I will definitely be doing this again.  It also goes a lot faster than cutting and piecing fondant together, that's for sure.

Mr. Dewell's Anniversary Cake

This weekend St. Paul's celebrated their organist's 40th anniversary.  He is an amazing musician! I am always awed to watch him play the organ and the piano.  Needless to say I was more than thrilled to be able to make this cake for him.

This is a 6" four layer chocolate cake with chocolate fudge filling.  I covered in white fondant.  To mark the white keys I used a straight edge and pressed in about very 3/4 of an inch.  Then I added the black keys on top.

Mr. Dewell loves a big statement flower so I made the biggest one that I could and then brushed it with gold shimmer dust.  

I also made 10 dozen cupcakes for the congregation to enjoy 5 dozen vanilla and 5 dozen chocolate.  Mr. Dewell got to take the cake home.
