butterflies & polka dots

This cake was for a baby shower. The nursery had butterflies in it and the hostess wanted to incorporate that but she loved another cake that I created for a baby boy shower with dots. So we combined the 2 and created this cake! The butterflies are all made from gumpaste and have disco dust on them to give them that extra sparkle.

Crawfish Season!

Have you had your crawfish this season? I took on 2 orders for crawfish themed cakes and I think they both turned out great!
First crawfish cake was a crawfish sitting on top of a table cloth with corn, potatoes and a beer can with a custom label.... 30th birthday.
The second cake was a cake that I revisited from doing my very first cake. I recreated the crawfish boil themed cake. Since I have worked on my talents alot more than that very first cake, I was very happy with the outcome. So was everyone else! I got tons of compliments and people telling me that they wanted to have an excuse to have a party just t
o order one of my cakes! Here's the picture......
notice the name was done to look like fish hooks. The birthday boy's passion is fishing... I thought it added a neat touch. The beer bottle ontop is a sugar cast beer bottle. I made the mold and the bottle. The one on the bottom is a real bottle.
Hope you like it as much as I did!
