Cinderella Cake

 Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Frosting between layers, Covered in Vanilla Buttercream & Fondant
Cinderella cake topper was purchased (not edible), All other details are made of Fondant

This was such a fun cake to make for a precious little princess. My only problem was not having enough room to cram it full of all the Cinderella details I remember from the movie: horses, carriage, those cute mice & birds... Oh well!

Iron Man Cake

Vanilla Cake with Vanilla Buttercream & Fondant
Iron Man made from gum paste & fondant
I tried to combine comic book elements with the awesome strength of Iron Man bursting through the cake. This was one of my harder cakes for me to envision, but once I made Iron Man the cake took on a life of its own - it was so much fun!!
