Range Rover & LA Lakers

This is an early creation by me done in 2009. The lady that wanted this cake wanted LA Lakers along with a replica of this specific black Range Rover. Let me tell you, this was the FIRST time I ever attempted a car. I think it turned out good for my first time ever carving and shaping a car. But it was a lot of work. The LA Lakers logo is all butter cream free handed. no stencil or print from a computer.

Down on the farm shower cake

Here's a cake that I made for a baby boy shower. The theme was all barn things. So, I made the barn out of fondant, the animals out of gumpaste and the green pastures out of fondant! And it was yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..... so I heard! Thanks Natalie!

Baby boy shower cake

This is the latest baby shower cake! It's chocolate fondant with baby blue polka dots with my first ever gum paste bow! I have to say, this is one of the cutest cakes yet!

Oklahoma Sugar Arts Show 2010

Hello Flirty fans! I wanted to let you know that I will be a contestant in the Oklahoma Sugar Arts show this October!
This show is held every year in Oklahoma and has been successful for many years. This show is actually aired on TLC every year. They have wonderful divisions to enter into. One of the well known divisions is the Ginger Bread houses. You have never seen a Gingerbread house like this before! It's amazing! Kerri Vincent is the host of the competition. She's also the host of TLC's cake challenge.
Here's the website for more information:

I will be entering the competition as a beginner since I have less than 2 years experience and I will be entering some of my cakes. I am currently sketching up some rough ideas for now but will have a better idea when we get closer to the dates. So, if you happen to be in the Oklahoma area October 1,2 & 3rd come to the state fair and check me out!
I will let you know what divisions I will enter and I will keep you posted!
Thanks for all your continued support!
