Fire Truck

This cake was made for a local firefighter for his 29th birthday. A few months ago, the Cambria, NY fire department that he works for burned down and "his" engine # 4-E-2 was lost in the fire. This engine was very special to him, so his wife wanted a cake of "his" engine. The entire cake is white with buttercream frosting, lot's of fondant pieces, as well as chocolate covered mini donuts for the wheels. I really love the way this cake turned out. The main focus is supposed to be on the engine, but I must admit that I love the way the fire hydrant with the hose (strategically placed in the number 29... because he is turning 29... clever huh?), and the water made from royal icing turned out. Happy birthday Chris!

Ava's giant cupcake

This giant cupcake was made for one of my friends since grade school's daughter Ava for her 2nd birthday. She said that she wanted a giant cupcake like the one that I made last year for my daughter's 1st birthday, but I could do what ever I wanted for the fondant pieces. I was a bit disappointed in the wire that the "bugs" are attached to, only because I don't think that it was a strong enough grade (they seemed to flop around more than I would have liked), so next time I will need something a bit stronger. Aside from that, I really love the colors on this cake and especially love the way that the bumblebees, ladybugs, and butterflies turned out. The flower cupcakes that I made to go along with the cake were just like the ones that I made last week. Happy Birthday Ava!
