Plants vs. Zombies

I was recently asked to create a Plants vs. Zombies cake for a 5th birthday. I was really excited because I am a huge fan of the game myself (I may have it installed on my computer and my phone *cough*). All of the characters are fondant and they are lovingly displayed on a fondant covered vanilla cake. Enjoy=)

A whole lotta cakes

Well, it’s been a really long time since I have posted anything; months, in fact. I was really busy with work all summer and through the fall and now that the holidays are behind me hopefully I will catch up on all the things I have been neglecting. So, here are some of the cakes that kept busy this last summer. Enjoy=)

Pink XL rose

blue and gold

purple roses

black anemone

coral and gold



Frozen cake

It’s official, Frozen is a big deal amongst the small set. The day after I finally watched the movie, I received a request for a Frozen themed cake. I paused briefly because I thought, ” I don’t make ice cream cakes…oh, I see”. Anywho, my face sculpting not quite up to par yet, Elsa proved to be too difficult to undertake. Olaf, however, that was another story.




Frozen, Olaf



Peacock cake

I’ve always wanted to do a peacock cake, so I was excited for the opportunity to create one for a sweet sixteen birthday party. It wasn’t as grand as a wedding cake would have been, but it was still fun. Since it was a birthday we decided to go with a two tier peacock topped cake and and make the rest of the cake servings in cupcake form decorated in blue and teal icing. Sadly, the photos I took at the venue are blurry at best, so I have no photos of the final set-up, but I do have photos of the peacock cake.





Wedding show

This is a cake I did for a wedding show display at the Four Seasons. Most weddings take place in summer so I wanted to put really vibrant flowers on it representing spring/summer. Most wedding shows, however, take place in the winter, so I wanted a seasonal background representing winter. I went with a bright white including a crystal layer with pearls, then added silver branches to the flower swag. I quite liked the effect.

This here is a little number I did for a contest. There is this fabulous contest every year called Threadcakes. It is a cake contest based on Threadless t-shirt designs. It is one of those glorious pairings in life I like to call Erin Mash-ups. Two or more of my loves combined into one. Here, cake and Threadless t-shirts (I own a few); throw in the awesomeness of a contest and you’ve got yourself a grade A mash-up.

I did not win the contest=( But it was super fun just entering. Added bonus, I ended up in the Cakewrecks blog (I LOVE YOU JEN!!!). Just making it into the Sunday Sweets section of Cakewrecks was prize enough for me=)
