Bug Cake

Happy Birthday, Tim!
I hear Tim's daughter, Morella, calls all insects "Bees". Obviously she doesn't have a degree in entomology like her dad. You'll notice there are no actual bees on this cake.

Who's hungry?!

Chocolate cake with buttercream frosting and gum paste (edible) bugs.

Butterfly Cake

Excuse the poor image quality. We're a bit crunched for time otherwise I'd have asked my husband for help. This is a 6" birthday cake for a special birthday princess. The little lady likes pink and orange, flowers and butterflies (sorry, there's just the one...) but she likes green too... If I did this cake again there are certainly things I would do differently. I would spend more time thinking about what flowers to do and I would make a gum paste butterfly with it's wings up, and not laying there all floppy. This was a short notice cake though and I'm pleased with how it turned out.

Mushroom Cake

It started out white with lots of gold shimmery stuff.

I had a lot of trouble with my leaf tips. I think I need different ones.

Peanut butter frosting looks like worms.

Mixing colors...
The corners of my cake came too close to the edge and I had to smoosh some stuff with my lid. Lesson learned!
Decided to make it green.

Mina told me I needed to paint the bottoms of the mushrooms brown and I think she was right.

The end!
