Baby Shower Gifts
This is a cake I made for my sister's baby shower. It is 3 tiers of double-layer cakes, all covered in rolled fondant and decorated with fondant ribbons and a dried fondant bow.
These cookies were part of a gift basket for a sports enthusiast's birthday. Each cookie is covered in glace' icing and decorated with glace' piping.
This cookie was made as a part of a Yankees basket that was donated to a fundraiser raffle.
Buffalo Bills Cookie
This cookie was part of a Buffalo Bills gift basket that was donated to a charity raffle.
These cookies were also part of the Yankees basket, donated to a fundraiser raffle.
This stand-up snowman was one of my first attempts at cake decorating. It was baked in a double-mold, then stood upright and decorated with star piping.
This cake was made for a baby shower. It has two ten-inch rounds covered in fondant, and hand-rolled fondant feet.
This cake was made with side-stacked 10 inch rounds, covered in rolled fondant. Each part of the bottle was a different cake flavor.
This cake was made by request for a Star Wars fan. Yoda was iced, then covered in a rolled-fondant cloak. His lightsabre was a last-minute idea by my husband: a freezer pop!
My daughter requested this cake for her birthday. At the time, there wasn't a sculpted Nemo pan available commercially, so I drew the design and transferred it to a rectagular cake, then piped the icing accordimg to my pattern.
This was my favorite cookie last Halloween. Each cookie was 6.5 inches in diameter.
Kansas City Cookie
This cookie was part of a Kansas City Chiefs gift basket. It also included footballs and red helmets.
This is our baked-goods spread at our annual Halloween party. My husband, the arachnaphobe even ate the spider cookies!
This simple dessert cake was covered in rolled fondant, and decorated with icing and edible pearls.
My niece turned 2 last year. That's her party invitation in the picture. I used that as the design for the cake.
This was my first wedding cake. My friend Stefanie trusted me enough to make it for her. It was carrot cake and white cake, covered in rolled fondant and decorated with edible pearls. It traveled 3 hours by car and still looked great at the reception in Ithaca!
This cake was a for a child's birthday (he shares it with Halloween). My father gave me the idea of injecting the cake with red gel so it would ooze when sliced. Yuk.
This basic cake was for my daughter's christening party. I tinted the layers to add color when sliced.
