Call of Duty Cake

Inspired by a Pinterest post my friend Ashla and I made this cake for her brother-in-law who is a fan of Call of Duty games.

Unfortunately, I didn't get the fondant to lay flat but I think it still looks pretty good.

Here is is with the added silver luster dust.

Twins Halloween Birthday cake

Since my boys birthday is only 6 days away from Halloween we decided to have a Halloween themed birthday party.  They loved it and it was so much fun having the kids dress up.

I made this cake using white cake mix which I colored with food dye.  Frosted the cake with butter cream and then colored and rolled fondant.  The toppers are just plastic wind up toys I found in the store.

I used the neon food coloring I found in our local grocery stores.

As you can tell they had a great day!

Lalaloopsy cake

This was one of those hectic weeks and I didn't have time to make a fondant Lalaloopsy cake so I found these plastic cake toppers on Etsy.  She seemed just as happy and I didn't have to do much work.


Here's a simple Chewbacca cake I made for my son's 16th birthday using chocolate frosting and some fondant.
