I was really excited to do these cakes...and very relieved when the customer came to pick them up!! At first when I was asked to do these cakes, I was a little intimidated because they were to be done at the same time and that was the first time that I had to do (2) cakes in one order! So, HUGE thanks to my hubby who helped me out TREMENDOUSLY by listening to every idea that I came up with, going shopping with me for ribbon (that was a little stressful! but that's a whole 'nother story!! LOL) and most of all, helping me to assemble and deliver these cakes!!
Sorry for the picture quality! I gotta get a better camera!! This cake was pretty easy to do, despite having to do that blasted frozen buttercream transfer THREE times before it FINALLY worked!! It was my first time trying this technique out, so I think I did a pretty decent job considering! As for the rest of the cake, very easy and simple to do...I hope the bday girl likes it!!
This was my first attempt at carving a 3-D cake...and can I tell you how FUN it was?! I had the privilege of taking a class with Sharon Zambito and Dena Bryngelson; they are FANTASTIC teachers and a HOOT to be around!! This was my completed swamp scene - my favorite part was the tree stump!! All edible, except for the sticks in the cattails and the gator's mouth was cardboard....
This was part of the process of carving and assembling the gator and the rest of the scene:
