1  Re: Sesame Street First Birthday Cake in Dessert by jesgia on: September 18, 2008 04:09:24 PM
OMG, thank you all so much for the compliments!  Sorry for not getting back here sooner... Yes, the smash cake was for my daughter to have for her very own, so she could really dig into her first real taste of sugar!! 

Here is how she looked after about 10 minutes:
Rethinking that last bite, lol!

And, yes all of the characters were made with the fondant.  The only non-fondant accents are the black pupils and elmo's mouth.

Thanks again, everyone!

Oh, before I forget- it is pretty common to have the birthday person (a bit older) bite into the cake after blowing out the candles.  Then, someone pushes birthday person's face into the cake.  I am so NOT a fan of this practice, I think it's horribly cruel.  Same goes for throwing people into the pool at pool parties.  not cool, IMO.

2  Sesame Street First Birthday Cake in Dessert by jesgia on: September 15, 2008 01:41:18 PM
I made this cake for my daughter's first birthday on Labor Day weekend.  The cake is a three layer marble cake, with a chocolate cream cheese filling.  Yum!  I used marshmallow fondant, which is SO easy to work with!!

And her smash cake- regular canned frosting tinted yellow, and MMF street sign.

She LOVED it!!

3  Behold--- Ragamuffin! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by jesgia on: January 04, 2007 10:55:53 AM
My pal asked me to make a special doll for his one true love.  He showed me this cartoon called "Lenore the cute little dead girl" ( think that is what it's called, forgive me if I'm wrong).  His lady friend loved the little doll Ragamuffin from the cartoon, so I set out to make him.  I had only made the skull bear before, so even though inexperienced, I was determined to make this look great. I LOVE the finished product, and I hope you do too.

4  Skull Bear- My first Stuffed Toy!!- (lil image heavy) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by jesgia on: December 18, 2006 01:19:36 PM
Ok, so after I found Craftster, I was inspired to do a stuffed animal.  So I asked my Co-worker Skye what I could make for him.  He said a teddy bear skull would be good.  So, I looked online and found a few patterns.  I took a little from this one, a little from that one, and came up with my own design.  There aren't joints because I didn't know how I'd do that, so the appendages are just sewn on.  I'm really proud of the result, and Skye loves it.
- sorry- the pics are a lil blurry!  but you get the idea ( I hope)
