(Mostly) Wordless Wednesday: Cake!

Oh yes… I have been busy in the kitchen since I've been MIA this summer lol…  Ok, not exactly THAT busy… I have baked 3 cakes since the last “cake update” lol…
1) my first (homemade marshmallow) fondant and gum paste cake
2) a cake that I took to a cookout my husband and I were invited to and
3) my mom’s birthday cake!!! 
This post is going to be pictures of the fondant and gum paste flower cake! :)

***All of my cakes, fillings, and icings are made from scratch

Cake Details: 
     - Chocolate cake
     - Chocolate mousse filling
     - With fresh strawberries
     - Dirty iced with Hershey's cocoa chocolate fudge icing
     - Covered in homemade marshmallow fondant
     - Decorated with gum paste calla lily flowers

*Note* I think I rolled the fondant out too thin… it didn’t turn out as pretty as I had envisioned it in my head, but it definitely tasted better than the fondant you buy in the store :)

As always you can click on the picture to enlarge it :)

What is your favorite kind of cake?
I haven’t decided yet what my favorite is lol ;)

The next 2 “Wordless Wednesday” posts coming are about the last 2 cakes…
be on the lookout! lol ;)


  1. Right now, I want a bite of that cake in that last picture!

  2. Hi, will you make my wedding cake?! This would be a perfect wedding cake!

  3. Looks delicious! You've got some talent there.

  4. That's a gorgeous cake! I am an amateur cake maker and decorator. I made a red velvet cake for a baby shower and it was so much fun! I had a blast driving into the city and picking up supplies and shopping all the cute little decor items. It can be addicting!

  5. Seriously - who does that? You that's who!!! You are remarkably talented!!!! Do you enjoy it? If so, girl - you might be missing your calling - especially as you are currently unemployed!!!! Jus' sayin'!

    Can I just say how much I giggled reading your 2.) at the top - hee hee - 'you and your husband ' were invited too :) How awesome to read that (and to say it I'm sure!!!).

  6. OMG You need to fly over here to Korea right now and make me a cake! LOL

  7. wow! you're quite the cake maker!

    my fav cake is banana cake with cream cheese frosting. my cakes are not at all pretty, but when i make banana cake it at least tastes delish!

  8. I am so happy to see that your practicing

  9. Girl, you are absolutely INCREDIBLE!!! Holy cow! Um, should I tell you know when my bday is for a cake;)

  10. I am so envious!! I wish I could make cakes like that. I try & they turn out looking like poop. Lol

  11. My favorite kind of cake is the kind I get to eat. I love cake.

  12. Holy canoli! I am so impressed! I mean the only cake I've ever made was a spice cake from a box and then I bought frosting in that plastic container and tried to spread it over the top - and of course served it all from the pan I baked it in. You are so talented!!


Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you! Have a GREAT day!! :)
