Ninja Cake

We made this ninja themed cake for a boy that turned 9 years old. It was a mint chocolate chip cake with white mint frosting. On the surface of the cake we spray painted silver candy spray paint in a graffiti-like pattern. The corners of the cake are decorated with chocolate ninja stars and in the center of the cake is one giant chocolate ninja we made from mint flavored chocolate. To make these chocolate figures, you can pipe melted chocolate on wax paper and peel it off when it is cooled.

Cake for Twins!

My sister and I made these cakes for twin boys that were turning 1 year old. We were pretty excited since we are identical twins as well. Both cakes were white cake with vanilla buttercream frosting. We covered one in light green fondant and one in light blue fondant. We also made little safari animals and trees out of colored chocolate to decorate the cakes. To secure the chocolate onto the cake, we piped a little bit of frosting behind them and then we added white clouds to decorate the sides.
