Winnie the Pooh

... tubby little cubby all stuffed with... CAKE?!?

That's my kind of HUNNY bear!!

Winnie is marble cake with a pure buttercream icing (except for the store-bought black... any decorator would understand why, lol!).

Pretty little window boxes are so fun :)

Easter 2010

This Easter I made an orange flavored cake with orange marmalade filling, drizzled with Triple Sec.  I made a coconut oil icing for the first time (and was pleasantly surprised at how well it actually worked!!).  The egg on top is a gum paste form, handpainted with luster dust (mixed with alcohol).  The coconut grass was dyed green with regular ol' food coloring :)

Close up of the egg shell before placing on the cake surface:

Although perhaps this was a little bit TOO much flash...

Side view of the basketweave- not my best work, but pretty dang good considering it was melting in my hands as I tried to decorate!!

Nice little close up:
