Toilet Cake

I did this crazy (and some might consider unappetizing) cake for an old coworker's 40th birthday. His wife is throwing him a suprise party tonight. Hopefully he'll enjoy the toilet humor. :)



Can't forget the "odor spray" and plunger....






Ewwwwwww..... ;)

























Look closely at the headlines... lol
(if might help to click on the picture to enlarge it)


And of course my 4 year old critic says, "Mommy, I love it. But there is no trash can next to the toilet. There always needs to be a trash can next to a toilet!!".

Great point B and I will take that into consideration the next time I make a toilet cake. :)

Sometimes less is more....

I just finished this little cake and I love it. Its a 6 inch round buttercream topped with a fondant/gumpaste bow. So simple, but so sweet.





Cream and Black Baby Shower

This mama is using cream and black in her nursery so they decided to go with a black and cream cake with a splash of blue for her baby shower.

Good luck to little Evan and his mama to be. :)

TACOS!!!!!!!!!

I love these!! My new favorite way to eat tacos! :)

The taco "shells" are candy melts w/ little specks of Oreo mixed in to make it look more tortilla realistic. ;) The "meat" is chocolate cake, the lettuce is fondant, the cheese and sour cream are buttercream and the tomatos are Twizzlers. These would make the perfect dessert for Cinco De Mayo!! :)
