birthday girl cake image

I covered them all in our special fondant and with the leftover fondant I cut out different size circles for each cake and placed them on by using water that acts as glue.

I assembled them by staggering them, and placed a dowel rod all the way through the tiers to stabilize them. I then added ribbon around each tier and placed a store-bought gift ribbon on top.

She was very pleased and everyone at the party commented favorably.

Warning! This is not a burrito, it's ALL cake.

This birthday cake idea was for a local company employee's birthday party. He just so happened to be a Spanish American and they wanted something with a Mexican theme. The man loved carrot cake so I made a simple carrot cake fondant burrito with cream cheese icing.

I made the wrap with brown colored fondant cut into a circle. I crumbled up the cake, placed it inside the fondant and put a dip of cream cheese icing on top. There you have a burrito look! I placed 10 of them in a Taco Bell bag which they sat on the conference table. Everyone got a few good laughs.

3 tier birthday cake image

This birthday cake idea was for a neighbor. My children were over at their house playing when all of a sudden my daughter came running in telling me:

"It's Zari's birthday today and she wanted a lemon cake".

Well she wanted to make her a surprise cake. Luckily I had the ingredients for a lemon cake, so my daughter and me whipped up a miniature cake. We made this beautiful little girl her very own cake.

Also my daughter said Zari had been wearing her favorite hat which was white with black dots, so I just so happened had some ribbon that was black with white polka dots.

I wrapped that around the bottom of the cakes and put black dots all around the rest of the cakes.

I believe this cake was meant to be cause when we arrived at her house her hat matched perfectly even the bottom along with the pink rose on the hat!

"Dear Mrs. Stephanie, thank you for my beautiful cake. I just loved the polka dots! The cake was so good!" Love, Zari
