Amalia’s 1st birthday ~ 4 tiers of sweets

At a little over 30 inches, this 4 tiered birthday cake was a huge display of fun! Amalia’s Godmother wanted a grand display for her 1st birthday. Lollipops, candies, cupcakes, and everyone’s favorite candy buttons on paper tape. (I think you ate more paper than candy as a kid enjoys these!:))

What a great cake to create! Thanks so much for the challenge Maribel.

Rapunzel’s Tower ~ A Tangled Surprise

My favorite thing about creating cakes is the new experiences it brings me every week. This cake was absolutely no exception. Andriea had a great challenge for me when she called and said her soon to be 3 yr old daughter wants a “Big Punzel cake” for her birthday. The Disney movie Tangled has been a staple in our house and I’ve wanted to try to tackle one of these cakes for a while now. I was nervously excited to take on the challenge.

After looking at pictures, thinking about large wooden base structures (which I’m totally new to) and lots of brainstorming, here’s the final product. Base of the cake is a 10″ Red Velvet Round and the tower itself is completely molded out of Rice Krispy cereal then covered in fondant. I’m really excited about the outcome and the doors it has opened. Especially putting Ray’s power tools to work creating BIGGER cakes!:)

Happy Birthday Jaylani!!
