Carnival Theme Cake & GIVEAWAY- Cake Decorating Bakery Business Management Excel Software Spreadsheet

 
 
Today not only I have a cute cake to show you
but also a fabulous giveaway from ExpressExcel Shop on Etsy that I am sure you would love.
 
 
 
First let me show you this Carnival theme cake that I made to celebrate a little boy's birthday. 
 I loved how the bear sitting on the ball turned out and the pop corn on the bottom tier is actually real. I figure is was better to eat real pop corn than modeled fondant pop corn!



I used an online letter font template and my trusty kopykake to write the little boy's name on the plaque.



For cakes using bright and primary colors I always recommend buying the fondant already colored, is very time consuming color fondant and the colors do not turn out as good as they should be!

Two Peas and their Pod cake




One of my girlfriends is having twin boys!
 I couldn't be more excited and happy for her. Her sister had a Baby Shower for her a couple weeks ago and of course I had to bring the cake.

 
 
This is such a clean and simple design that I love.

The peas and the pod were very easy to make, I had taken a Craftsy class with Ann from
 Pink Cake Box where she taught how to make it. I took the design inspiration from her own design for the pod.
                              The cake was chocolate cake with oreos and cream buttercream.

Pink and Ruffles Ballerina Cake


Happy 1st day of Fall!!
oh my! time goes by so fast, I already have a 2nd grader and we are back to running around.
Part of the extra curricular activities that my little girl attends are ballet classes, no wonder this cake was so dear to me while I was making it.

I love the way the ballet slippers turned out, I used a tutorial by Peggy Does Cake , super easy to follow and the instructions, pictures and details are amazing!
 
This cake is packed with pretty pink ruffles and silver sequins that are so popular right now.
 
I made the sequins with grey fondant and then airbrushed them with silver color, I attached them to the cake with a dab of water and then I airbrushed the tier with silver color again.
 
Since then, I have seeing a few other techniques for making sequins that
 I am looking forward to try soon.  
 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like this cake as much as I do!!

Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat theme cake

 This Cat in the Hat theme cakes is one of my favorite cakes that I have ever made. It has it all, colorful, big, tall and full of details.

The Cat in the Hat and stars were handmade using gumpaste
 I made the white base cut outs for Thing 1 and 2 using gumpaste, I let the cut outs dry for about 3 days and them using my trusty kopykate I traced and filled the figures of Thing 1 and 2 to match the party invitation.

 Do you like colorful and busy looking cakes?
