Kangaroo Baby Shower

I received an order for a baby shower cake, for a mom who is from Australia. So, I made a baby block, with a mommy kangaroo and her baby on top. And, on the sides of the cake, I put fondant cutouts of Australian animals, an emu, koala, wombat, and platypus. It came out really cute, and I even received an email from the woman who ordered it, with kind words of gratitude :)

Trudy's Birthday Cake

This cake was so much fun to make, it was uber personalized for Trudy's birthday, with the birthday girl herself, along with 7 of her close friends all recreated in sugar, standing on the top. Around the cake were gum paste representations of all her loves- photography, Friends tv show, camping, girl scouts, and scrapbooking. And the cake read "celebrating 40 years of Trudy"
