Monster High Cake for Aleina

It has been a few weeks since my last post... crazy busy on this end. The fun never seems to stop... always something on the go! 

Since my last post, I've been working on my projects for the upcoming CEM Magazine issue, done a little traveling, worked at the hospital, done lots of yard work, housework, parented, wifed and made this awesome cake for my God Daughter Aleina that I'm sharing with you today!

Isn't it pretty? Even if it is a little creepy and "gothy", I LOVE how it turned out :) 

Monster High Cake for Aleina

 This was a very large cake, standing at around 12 inches tall. The lower tier of the cake was 10 inches wide and was vanilla flavored. The top layer was a 6-inch chocolate cake. The entire cake was covered in a vanilla buttercream icing, covered and detailed with fondant. For those of you that are curious, this cake took approximately 7-8 hours to complete. Might make you understand and appreciate why these kinds of cakes have a higher price tag ;)

I have to be honest I don't have any idea of what this "Monster High" is all about but that is what the Birthday girl wished for! Personally, I think if I was 6 years old, I would be freaked right out by those dolls... boy how times have changed, lol!

I hope you liked my take on a Monster High cake. I know the birthday girl loved it and that was all that mattered! Happy Birthday, Aleina :)

Winnie the Pooh Cake

Happy Memorial Day to all my American Friends hope you are all enjoying the holiday!

Today, I would like to share with you a cake I made for my friend Karen's little boy. William turned 1 this past weekend and I had the honor of making his very first Birthday Cake! Yay, Will!

What 1 year old doesn't love Winnie the Pooh?! Isn't he cute??? I love how it all came together. Winnie is all made of fondant and the center of his body is Rice Krispies treats. Totally edible if Will wanted to take a bite, lol!

Here are a few more pics of the cake... close up and from different angles.

Aren't those bumblebees just the cutest little things?

The inside of the cake had a chocolate flavored bottom layer and a yellow cake top layer, iced and with vanilla buttercream. It was finished and decorated with fondant. Measured 10 inches in diameter and approximately 4 inches high (not including the toppers). 

Happy Birthday, Will, hope you have an amazing year! 

Thanks for coming by, if you are planning on making a Winnie the Pooh cake hopefully I have inspired you!

Happy Crafting :)
