Evelyns Cake                                          Nothing But Winners in this GalleryEvelyns Cake

Contributed by: Evelyn Moore (Elk Grove, CA)

 

I make cakes as a hobby.  I give my cakes as presents to friends and family.  I love using Fondant because it is very easy to make and handles really well. I don't go for the "simple" look.  It would feel like the cake is not finished.  Last year I won in the 2005 California State Fair  Cake Show/Competition.  It was mainly judged on taste, flavor, texture and over all, but I decorated my cake anyway, although looks didn't count.  That was my very first time entering in the State Fair, but I won First Place (Blue Ribbon), Best of Show, Best of Class and Best of Division.  I hope to do it again this year.  I also won First place two years in a row, 2004 and 2005 in the baking contest in my city, Elk Grove, CA, in the Pumpkin Harvest Festival baking contest (taste, originality and presentation, not decorating).  I will be entering the the Cake Decorating Contest in May 2006 in the Sacramento County Fair..I have never entered in a Cake Decorating Contest, that's why I am so excited. My husband eats my experiments, including my failures.

He is my judge at home on my baking.                                                                  Thank you  Evelyn

I made this cake for my nephew's 16th birthday.  I used the sports ball pan for the ball and a 10" cake for the basket.  All of it is decorated with Italian Buttercream and it's filled with Baileys Chocolate Mousse. 

                                                                                                                          Thanks for letting me share with you! Jacqui


Oyster

Contributed by: Cailean Kohagen (Seattle, WA)

Caileans CakeI wanted to send a photo, attached to this email, to share my "most beautiful project." Recently my mother-in-law turned 50 and I wanted to make her something to eat to make her feel special. I thought making an oyster with a pearl would be a nice way to say she's a pearl after 50 years. :) I took a tortilla, baked it upside down on a foil ball to create a bowl. I then melted white chocolate and covered the tortilla with melted chocolate and tried to swirl it a little to create a nice pattern. I then put a little melted dark chocolate on one end because I noticed in a lot of photos of oyster shells, on one end is where the top shell broke off and it leaves a dark lip on that end. I took some blue pearl dust and brushed it on the whole thing. To make the pearl I simply made some white chocolate plastic and molded that into a ball and also brushed with dust. The starfish are made with a starfish candy mold and swirled white/dark chocolate or white chocolate and peanut butter.                Thanks!! Cailean


Confirmation CakeSusans Cake

Susans CakeContributed by: Susan (MA)

Here's a confirmation cake. I didn't want to make it to frilly, it was for a young man and woman. The cross is marshmallow fondant. I found a picture of the cross on line and printed it out in the size I needed. I put the image on top of the fondant and poked holes in it to get the outline on the fondant, then I used a razor knife to cut it out. The cross is painted with gold luster dust. The customer was very happy. I also did a pocketbook cake using the make up molds for the same customer.                     Susan in Massachusetts

My name is Margie and I am from Charles Town WV. I have a few cakes I would love to share in your Creative Corner. I have only been cake decorating for less than a year, but I am addicted! I used to be an art teacher, now I am a stay at home mother of two. Cake decorating lets me use my artistic side and still lets me spend time with my two baby girls!                                               Thanks!
