Bacon Steak Guitar

Joseph is our daughter's friend's dad, and he loves to cook. I've heard that he actually prepares dinner regularly, and even makes the entire thanksgiving feast by himself. And it's good too!!
He also loves guitar, so i thought that there would be no better cake for him than a meat guitar. He was really happy when he saw it, declaring that I combined his three favorite things, steak, bacon, and guitar. hee hee!!

(on a side note, my kids decided to try some of the fondant bacon, and I wish I could have captured their expressions when they tasted it. I told them it was fondant, but for some unknown reason their brain told them to expect salty goodness)

Here it is, in all its glory, complete with bacon roses and bacon guitar picks that spell out "Happy Birthday Joseph!"

Bacon wrapped neck - yummy!!
Those glorious bacon roses and my daughter's idea - a cooking rocks sticker in the shape of an apron - pure genius!! :)

Shannon's purse

My son's teacher, Shannon, loves purple. The class had a little surprise party for her birthday and I made her this purse. She's really pretty and very fashionable, so it seemed like something she would own. Wish we had enough money to buy her a real one! She's a fantastic teacher, my son absolutely adores her.

Happy Birthday Shannon!!

So, one of my husband's coworkers ordered a sushi cake for her daughter's 30th birthday. She requested "not fondant" so I went outside of my comfort zone and made a white chocolate clay to cover the cake, and later to make the sushi. It worked pretty well!
I love the color of this cake too, it makes me yearn for summer...


Gloria is a friend of the mom who I made that princess cake for, it was kinda unusual because I never actually met her, we did all our business over email. She was really nice too :)
For her 40th birthday she wanted something pink and black, and inspired by Madonna, so I came up with this cake, a zebra lacy ode to a youthful 40 year old~

The middle was a recreation of fancy black lace~

And what cake is complete without a gucci purse!!??
