Winter Cake

I was asked to make a cake for the ice festival. I had no idea what to do. I made a little Jack Frost (my favorite part of the cake) and then I added "ice sculpture" snow flakes. I made the snow flakes out of candy that I crushed and melted in the oven, I then cut it out with a cookie cutter while it was still hot. The finished cake had 4 snow flakes on the top but I was unable to get a picture with all 4 flakes. The little Jack Frost is made with mm fondant. He took quite a while to make but well worth it. He is so cute! It doesn't really show up in the picture but he is dusted with shimmer dust so he sparkles - very Jack Frost like. I took these pictures at night so they are not the best. The cake even looks a bit pink although it is really white.

Sunken Ship cake

This cake is supposed to look like a ship wreck at the bottom of the ocean. The kids wanted to help me with making the treasure. They made some gold pieces but then they gave up. They all said it was too hard to make stuff so there isn't much loot by this sunken ship.

Over the Hill Cake 2

This cake is very similar to the first Over the Hill cake that I made. I messed up a bit on the writting but over all a good cake. I haven't yet heard if the customer like it. I hope so.
