XBox 360

Created for a certain son-in-law who is (you guessed it) an Xbox fanatic. That's his all-time favorite game on top of the box (in fondant form), and I thought adding the blood spatters to the cake would be a great complement to the electric green on the box itself. Chocolate cake with buttercream icing, then fondant on top. The controller is made entirely of fondant. It should give him enough sugar to snack on for at least a month.

What a perfect birthday cake for any little boy who's into superheroes. And I LOVE making this cake. Looking for more little boys (or big ones) who want a Spidey cake for their birthday ...

Happy Anniversary

Remember that great husband from the "New Baby Boy" cake a few pictures below? Well, he did it again. He managed to secretly order a cake for their 6th wedding anniversary, and surprised his bride with it last night.

This is a chocolate cake with buttercream icing, and a red gumpaste bow painted with pearl luster dust. (I was going with the OU colors.)
