I Love Making Cakes!

I figured I would share some of my cake creations. 

A friend sent me the link to a blog and I thought it would be fun to enter their little giveaway. In addition to that I am actually making another neat cake tonight for my Mom's birthday that I would love to share too.

I've always been interested in making cakes. I started making them for my family members when I was about 10. However, it wasn't until I had children myself that I actually started really getting my hands dirty. I just recently started working with fondant which has been a blast! 

This was my very first fondant cake which I made for a baby shower:
The little guy sitting on top was by far the most challenging part. He sure is cute though, isn't he?
My second fondant creation was for my daughters 5th birthday party. Not perfect by any means, but I was still thrilled with how it came out.
For whatever reason I only took pictures of two sides instead of all three. The third side had another pretty bundle of flowers on it (seen to left in the picture above).
Some of my other cakes include:

Another baby shower cake for a friend.
This awesome dinosaur was for my sons 4th birthday party.
A fun pirate ship for my sons 5th birthday party.
This was a fun one! Wowsa was it work though! My sons 6th birthday cake for a camping themed party.
 I made all the decorations for the cake by hand. I used many different candies to construct the various different parts of this cake. TONS of work but oh so cute!
Oh, and yes the bears are wearing clothes. Including but not limited to a life jacket and fanny pack. Hee, hee.
 And my last cake for today is a smiling little Dora for my daughter's 2nd birthday.
Thanks so much for taking the time to check my cakes out. They are far from perfect but I sure have had a lot of fun making them!
