Fishing Retirement Cake

I always have a hard time photographing cakes and it is especially difficult with a cake with all over decoration.  I never know which angle is best.  The picture above makes the top look lumpy but it is really flat.

                                       Okay so I can't make fish!  The ducks are cute though.

                                               The turtle was Aubrey's great idea.

Relief Society Birthday Cake

For Relief Society birthday cake I wanted to make something elegant.  They are doing something with keys as a theme so that's why there is a chocolate key on the top.  I made several keys but they looked funny on the cake so I just put the one on the top.  The RS seal is printed on edible paper and then outlined with edible pearls.  If you ever need anything to be copied onto edible paper most grocery stores will do it for about $10 a sheet.   

This is just a little cake that I made to go on the side, just to make sure that there was enough cake.

Moving Cake

 This cake was made for someone moving from Texas to Minnesota.
I tried to do a Texas type theme on the bottom and a cold Minnesota type theme on the top.  I only had a few hours notice to make the cake, had I had a little more time I would have done a little more with it.
