Suzanne's Cake!

I finally got Suzanne's cake crafted the way I wanted. I am tickled with how it turned out. It's the first time I've ever done a tiered cake and the first time I've ever used Fondant. I'm not ready to do a wedding (nor would I ever want to ---) but I think it's pretty cute! The letters and numbers are made from the fondant, as are the tiny pearls.

In keeping with the theme, I did put the duck on the back --- I just didn't think it worked on the front.

The party cake is iced, but I have to construct the faucet and knobs and fill with Jello. The jello can't be done too far ahead, so I'm just waiting on that. I'll post pictures of it later! Tomorrow I gotta clean this place up. Big thanks to Andrea for your help today!!!

Happy Birthday (cakes)

Happy Birthday Suzanne!! This is Suzanne's little cake for her actual birthday. I haven't decided what to make for dinner yet, but traditionally the birthday kid gets their favorite food -- how do you think everyone will feel about hot oatmeal for dinner?

This is made from the scraps from the party cake! I scooped out for the bathtub and the pieces stacked to make this cute cake with some of the leftover fondant.

Here's my boys being crazy --- It's the "Jacob and James show... showing daily on PBSKids, after Arthur" (as Jacob says)

They are both playing their guitar with Suzanne admiring them.
