For our uber-eco-conscious friend who is celebrating her 40th birthday by planting 40 trees on the family farm just west of Houston. Marbled green and blue fondant covers the Northern Hemisphere-shaped cake and 20 trees (I couldn't fit 40) are piped around the sides. Top dome layer is chocolate-chocolate chip, bottom layer is White Almond Sour Creme. With plenty of buttercream in between.

A baby shower cake to match the little dude's nursery bedding theme of rocketships. Those are the rockets around the edge of the cake -- in the process of taking off. Great loads of buttercream "steam" forming the border. And he sleeps in the clouds with his pacifier and fondant blankie 'til it's time to be born.
A Minnie Mouse Ears Hat cake for the going-away party for a young woman leaving Houston for an internship at Disneyland. The internet tells me this is the typical Minnie Ears hat for sale at Disneyland ... let's hope so. The back says, "Good Luck! We will miss you!"
My standard white sour creme cake with buttercream icing and fondant. The ears are cardboard, painted with a black sharpie and trimmed out in black royal icing.
