Baby Boy Blessing Cake

My friend just blessed her sweet baby last Sunday and was nice enough to let me force a cake onto her. I have been learning to make roses without molds and wanted to throw them onto a cake. Here it is. The fondant is Wilton Fondant. So much harder to roll out, but it looks so much cleaner than my homemade mm fondant.

Box of Chocolate Cake

This was my Valentines present for my sexy sweetie. The cake is triple fudge chocolate and the little "chocolates" on top are actually cookie dough balls coated in chocolate. So delish. The lid was made out of dried fondant.

Who ya gonna call?

Not me if you want a Ghostbusters Cake!
I am clearly a novice and this cake is proof. The more cakes I make, the more I wonder why. I'm not having a pity part, but I'm just not that great. I am really great at being creative and coming up with grand ideas, but my execution isn't something to sing about in the streets. I love doing it though so I will continue, practice, and get better.
Anywho, my friend's son had a Ghostbusters themed party. I could've made it all out of fondant, but I wanted to challenge myself and do something different. I wanted the red sign to really pop so I used cherry Jello. I also wanted it to be dark behind the ghost so I used melted chocolate. I didn't leave myself any time for error so this is the result.

Superbowl 2011 Cake!!!

Can you guess who I am rooting for?

Let's be honest, here. I am not a big football watching kind of gal, but I love the Superbowl! It's like a holiday for me. You eat great snack food, you park your duff on the couch, you spontaneously either jump up and down or yell angrily, and my favorite, my husband will sit and snuggle with me for over 2 hours!!!
I decided to go for Greenbay because I assumed that's who my husband would want to win. Nt so much. Apparently, They are mortal enemies of the Vikings (Jake's team). Crap. Too bad, I was too excited about my cake to be switchig teams. So here it is, complete with a football playing and cheer leading mouse. Maybe my cake will convince Jake to switch sides?
