Cheese platter cake

I made a cheese platter cake for my dad's birthday a while back.
Everything is cake and all are different flavors.

Lawyer cake

I made this cake for a friend who is a lawyer.
She sent me pictures of the law books she uses and I made those. I also added some judge hammer cake pops.
The cake is chocolate with raspberry jam. The pops are vanilla.

Pink Floyd The Wall cake

I made this Pink Floyd The Wall cake for my hubby's birthday.

I painted the picture of the Professor on the cake. I started with the background colors and let them dry overnight. The next day I painted all the details and lines over the top making for a pretty accurate Professor!

I added vinyl record cake pops and some tiny music details to make it look just that bit better :)

On the inside it was a chocolate cake with Dulce de Leche and lemon curd filling. Yummy!

I came across this A to Z on and thought it was a neat way to tell a little about myself.

A. Age: 28, also coincidentally the number of weeks I'm pregnant.
B. Bed size: A little larger than a Queen, but nowhere near a King, those are huge! Anyway it wouldn't fit in my little apartment and I like being able to reach out and feel my hubby instead of having to move across the field of bed to find him.
C. Chore that you hate: Washing dishes, could there be anything worse! They just keep coming, it never stops! I need a dishwasher!!!
D. Dogs: I have a rabbit named Sam who thinks he's a dog. My parents have a wirehaired dachshund called Indy. He's a sweety except when he catches mice and moles and eats them.
E. Essential start to your day: Breakfast.
F. Favorite color: Right now it's anything that fits into the baby room, mostly green, blue and pastel colors.
G. Gold or Silver: My ring has both and the rest of me has neither.
H. Height: 5’5, kinda short for a Dutch person but just fine for anywhere else :)
I. Instruments you play: Clarinet, though not for a while so maybe not.
J. Job title: Decorated cake, cupcake and pop maker, plus baby machine at the moment.
K. Kids: On the way, just one thankfully.
L. Live: Amsterdam, but rather not.
M. Mother’s name: Henny
N. Nicknames: Jazz, Jazzy, Yzy, Mijntje, Mientje, Babe etc...
O. Overnight hospital stays: No and I'd like to keep it that way!
P. Pet peeves: People who try to get on the train while others are still getting off, drug tourists (that's just sad...), Amsterdam...
Q. Quote from a movie: “Are you sure this water's sanitary? It looks questionable to me! ” – Tantor in Tarzan
R. Right or left handed: Right
S. Siblings: An older sister. I like her :)
U. Underwear: Those lacy secrets from Victoria.
V. Vegetable you hate: Peppers, grose.
W. What makes you run late: I guess exercising at the end of the day is pretty nice, otherwise I don't do late. Oh unless my sister and brother in law are coming by, they are always late so I don't bother being on time either.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: One of my arm that kept hurting, they found nothing. And some of my teeth which every dentist always compliments me on because they are so pretty for someone my age. Blush.
Y. Yummy food that you make: All my food is yummy that's why I started a cake selling business and my BF almost never cooks.
Z. Zoo animal: Anything weird. I love weird in animals, people and shoes!

Winnie the Pooh cake

For my birthday in April (woops, that's a while back) I made a Winnie the Pooh decorated two-tier cake. It was my first time sculpting with modeling fondant. I didn't make it quite right because it kept cracking but nevertheless Pooh turned out pretty nice. My niece recognized him, and Piglet too :)
The honeypots turned out really cute.

For my dads birthday I made a cheese platter cake. It was a platter of cake shaped like different types of cheese and each had its own flavor. I'm still waiting on the pictures of that one.

For my BF I'm going to make a musical cake, because he has a super huge record collection :)
