Mini Chocolate Tea Cup

One of the first things I think about when someone mentions "Alice in Wonderland" is tea parties.  When I was a little girl I loved little, mini tea sets.  I still have a few of them.  If you love tea sets too, then hold on to your hat!  This takes the cake for cuteness.....an edible, mini tea cup and saucer!  The little girl in me wants to let out a squeal!

Here's the cake it was made for.  When a little girl graduates from preschool, it's time to celebrate!  Tess wanted an Alice in Wonderland cake, of course.

Ready to make the tea cup and saucer?

Golf Cake


I think that any time you are given a choice of making a cake around someone's job or their hobby, you should always choose the hobby.  That's just my humble opinion.  That being said, I made a 50th birthday cake for a golfer.  That's right...hobby.
 First, stack two layers of cake.

Princess Castle Cake

Princesses, castles, knights in shinning armor.....it's what little girl's dreams are made of.  This cake was made for a sweet little girl.  Her favorite princesses were looking out of the windows.

The cake itself is just a simple, off set, two tiered cake.  I used icing images for the princesses in the windows.  The challenge with this cake came in making the turrets.

The cone shaped roof pieces are made of black modeling chocolate.  To make the cone, I rolled the modeling chocolate out on parchment paper and cut out a 1/3 circle shape.
