hOW about making the ring cakes and doing a gold fonda ...and then sculpting the figurines out of gum paste or print the pics off the net and put wax paper over them and trace them with frosting and freeze it then you could put them on the rings in different places...

I don't know... that sounds like the easy..(RIGHT whatever easy) way to make it...

That's a great idea! I'm always up for a challenge!

Thanks! I just love how happy it makes my kids when they see their cakes. So much better than paying someone else to do it. Only problem is that as my son gets older, he is  starting to request more complicated things. He said for his next birthday he wants a Lord of The Rings theme with Golum in it....Not sure how I'll pull that one off  Grin
33  COOKING / Dessert / Belle cake on: December 31, 2010 11:16:10 AM
My daughter asked for a princess cake for her 2nd birthday. I asked what flavor, and she insisted on "princess" flavor. I decided on champagne cake, since I figure that would be a suitable flavor for a princess. I used the Wilton's Wonder Mold with the brunette doll. I did the hair myself with a yellow ribbon and tied the little rose to her hand. The frosting is homemade butter cream dyed with lemon yellow and just a bit of orange and brown to give it that golden color.
When we brought it out to her, she immediately said "Belle!" and then ran her finger through the frosting and licked it off her hand!

34  COOKING / Dessert / mystery machine cake on: September 25, 2010 07:22:54 PM
here is my first attempt at making a fondant cake. It is the mystery machine from scooby doo for my son's 4th birthday. The cake is two loaf pans of pound cake, the bottom butter pound cake and the top is strawberry. The cake was covered in white buttercream and then colored marshmallow fondant.

I used to do ceramics as a kid. Someone introduced me to one of these pottery studios where you paint and they glaze and fire it. It thought it was very fun and relaxing and have now become hooked! Any way, here are my recent projects - I'm a little rusty, but I'm having fun!

The tail spikes are made of Japanese Pocky sticks, though we were considering putting candles back there, my brother convinced me not to because he thought Luke might have trouble blowing them out if they were surrounded by the Pocky sticks.

thanks everyone! It was funny, last night before the spikes were on, my dad came downstairs and said, "Oh, that's a nice crocodile!"
Then my son comes up while I'm halfway frosting it and said "Wow, it's turning into a mountain!"
Now that it's all said and done, I think he will see that it is a dinosaur, but either way I think he'll like eating it!

My son wanted to stegosaurus cake for his third birthday, so I decided to get past my fear and attempt to do one. My mother-in-law taught me how to do the drop stars and I figured out the rest based on looking at other pictures and coming up with my own design from that. Any way, I thought it came out nice and was pretty proud of it. I hope my son likes his party tomorrow!

I tried making pretzles once and it ended in tears and tragedy. I should try again now that I'm not 10 years old anymore
