Hat Cake

Well, needless to say I am pretty disappointed with this hat. This weekend I had to make 3 cakes so this hat was a bit rushed and as you can see the bill of the hat cracked. This hat cake is not nearly as well done as the other hat cake that I made. That's what I get for rushing a bit. I'm just grateful that the hat is for my father-in-law. He is so patient and kind, he will still be impressed that I made him a cake regardless of weather it's cracked or not!

T-Rex Cake

This was my first try at making a cake with a frozen buttercream transfer. It is actually pretty easy. has a very good tutorial on how to make one.
I just found out that the recipient of the cake thought the little green dots looked like peas and once that was said no one at the party wanted cake. I'm a little disappointed by this. They do look like peas but I thought the dots added some much needed color around the edge. What do you think?

Disney Cake

I was asked to make a Disney cake with Belle, Mickey and Minnie and this is what I came up with. The castle is actually rice krispie treats. I did that just to make the whole thing easier to transport. If I made the castle out of cake I would be worried that it would crack while being jostled in the car. The towers and Belle are gumpaste and the Minnie and Mickey and little figures that I found at the dollar store. I added the the ribbon last. It is pretty wide but I really do like the way it looks on the cake.
