Baby Shower

To date, this is the largest cake I've ever made!!  It was also my first delivered cake!

The bottom tier contains a 2-layer, 4" tall x 6" round cake, and 5 individual 4"x4"x4" 3-layer cubes.  The top tier is a 2-layer 8" round.  I made the baby on top with fondant and gumpaste, and then food writers to add some detail work on the face.  The decorative candies on the cubes are from chocolate molds, and the letters on the top tier were store-bought.  The only part of the cake that was inedible were the baby-themed candles around the baby.

Baptism cake

This cake was for a friend's daughter's baptism.  The name has been intentionally blurred for anonymity.

This was a 2 layer devil's food cake (bit of an inside joke from the mom) with dark fudge filling, and a rich cream cheese frosting.  The mosaic-style cross was hand drawn with a thin border of the cream cheese frosting and then filled with colored piping gel.
