Here is a skateboard cake. The party was held at Lab 33, the indoor skate park in Tigard. This was a chocolate cake with cream cheese & strawberry filling and a butter-cream frosting. The kids had a blast skateboarding, Taylor even received a skateboard that looked like the cake minus a few details.

Here is a recent cake I made for a Strawberry Shortcake Princess themed birthday party. It incorporates mostly butter cream piping especially for the ruffles along the the dress and sugar flowers and pearls add that extra princess sparkle. The cake is the skirt of the dress and the doll is removed and can be washed so that the child can play with it when the cake is finished.
Happy Birthday from Elmo! This cute little guy was a huge hit at a 1 year olds Elmo birthday party, I also made a round 6 inch cake with Big Bird on it, that was given to the birthday boy to enjoy on his own, he was wearing far more then he ate tho! Soooo...cute!

This cake is mostly butter cream frosting, the kids and hats are from fondant. As you have probably noticed, I am not a big fondant person, I don't like the taste and therefore I use as little as possible. I would be more than willing to use fondant for anyone who would like me too.
This cake was a blast to make! Celebrating their 50 yr. wedding anniversary, I just put the most important areas of their life together on the cake, Chuck was a pilot for an airline, and of course you have to have all the kids and the year they were each born, they loved to golf and ski, etc.
