Cookie Jar Cake

Cookie Jar Cake...

My daughter wanted something with cookies for her birthday...This is 4 layers of chocolate cake, with oreo cookie whipped filling between each layer.  The fondant is airbrushed with a blue sheen to give the cookie jar a ceramic look, but for some reason the sparkle and sheen didn't come through in the photos...YOu'll have to use your imagination here!   The lid is also 2 layers of cake, and the cookies are real!

Map of Australia Cake

Sweet Adelaide...

My sister was moving from Canada to Adelaide, Australia earlier this year.  A goodbye send off with family and friends made the chance of any type of elaborate cake impossible!  However I could not send her off without SOME form of delicious cake to remember me by, so I quickly put together a chocolate cake with oreo cookie whipped cream filling, and chocolate ganache topping.  Royal icing outlines Australia, with a little red fondant dot marking Adelaide...!

Cottage Cake

 Cottage by the Sea...

This is a 65th wedding anniversary cake for the parents of a friend. Can you imagine...65 years and still in love!? Amazing!
