I have finally set up a professional cake blog with flavors, pricing, etc. The red button to the left will take you there! I have decided to change my business name due to the fact that my odd obsession with bovine lifeforms is.....shall we say....less than professional? I will probably still post cakes on this blog along with the gory details of making them; the new blog is just for information purposes. If any of you have a link to my cow cake creations, I would appreciate you putting one for the new blog as well, or just replacing it! You can go to custom cake creations and copy the code to put the new button on your blog. Thanks!
Here is the one I just did for my daughter's 5-year-old party. I think I have finally learned the secret to these cakes. I have been cutting the angles too steep; so when you get it together it just doesn't look right. Better luck next time! I actually went through 3 cakes for the middle tier before I got it right. So my kids had cake for breakfast two days in a row. Whatcha gonna do?
Here is the one I did for my son's 2nd birthday! It is just an 8" round with jumbo cupcakes for the ears. I had to cut another cupccake in half to elevate the ears to the top of mickey. For the pattern I printed a picture off the internet and traced it onto wax paper with piping gel. Then I flipped the traced picture over onto the top of the cake! I finished it off with a big bead border and dollar store figurines of Minnie, Goofy, and Donald.
Here is the cake I did for my friend's birthday - she's a twilight freak like so many of us out there. So I thought it would be fun to do an apple cake. I baked a heart-shaped cake and just carved an upside-down V in the bottom. Then I covered the cake (red velvet) with red candy melts. I piped a stem and leaves with buttercream icing, and my friend Becky did the writing.
For the lion's mane I used toasted coconut, and the lamb's fleece is mini marshmallows, cut in half.
