Gerber Daisy Delight!

This might be one of my new favorite cakes!!  I love the giant Gerber daisies and how they shimmer in the sunlight of my kitchen.  The leaves were cut free-hand and shaped to give them movement.  Hope the Birthday Girl enjoys it!!

1st Place Cake, 2nd Birthday Party

After an amazing trip to New York, I rushed back to make a cake for Ethan's 2nd birthday.  I have really learned to love children's cakes when I get to use bold colors and bright ideas.  I was 'fired-up' after my classes in NYC and could not wait to put my new skills to work.  I think I am in love with covering cake boards- it makes such a difference!  The party had a "Cars" theme.  

All Decorations are made of Gumpaste.
