Topsy Turvy Cake

On this project I learned how to carve a cake to make it look like topsy turvy shape, the topsy turvy pans are expensive, unless you can afford them, they are nice and make the cake even better shaped.

Its a fall theme chocolate cake, carved, covered with fondant and decorated with gum paste leaves and flowers.

Halloween Pumpkin Carved Cake

This is where all the carving creativity came from, thanks to this class project I learned so much!  Next I need to learn how to airbrush a cake.

This is the cake when it got home from class I saved it for 2 weeks to decorate it with leaves and fall dried fruits, took me a while to finish it.

Colorful Buttercream 3-Tier Cake

Finally learned how to stack a cake with more than 2 tiers, it was quite a work, the project class was only 3 hours so I needed a practical design that does not take more than 3 hours to finish.

So I thought of decorating the cake with buttercream, a lot of buttecream, I bought two 5 lbs buckets of buttercream and mixed each color separate, took me a while...

First I had an idea to do a wedding cake but I was short of time for ideas.
This cake was delicious, top tier was chocolate, middle tier was orange and bottom tier was coconut.

Teal n Purple 2-Tier Cake

My very first 2 tier cake I did for a friend, it was kinda scary but fun to stack the top part, scary because I did not know how it was going to come out, I was not on that cake decorating level yet, I just was barely learning it.

I got enough info and intructions from my teacher, and it turned out fun!
Cake was a vanilla/pistacho cream with regular fondant and royal icing flowers.

Everyone loved the cake and my friend was so happy!
