Candy Land Cake!

I made this cake for my friend Rachel's 17th birthday. This is a red velvet cake with swiss meringue buttercream. The cake is designed to look like a candy land board. The "path" normally on candy land is made of starbursts and the peppermint village is candy canes and coconut. There is also a peanut brittle house, a lollipop forest, and the ice cream cone kingdom. The ice cream cones are filled with cake (crumbled up and stuffed inside) and topped off with frosting to look like ice cream. The edge of the cake is surrounded in peanut M&Ms and dots. No doubt the sweetest cake I have made so far! 

Harry Potter Cake II

I made this cake for my friend Franny's 17th birthday. This is my second Harry Potter cake so I wanted to do something a little different and make it in the shape of a book. This cake is red velvet with cream cheese frosting (aka the best). The cake is covered in white fondant and brushed with brown food coloring mixed with vodka. The wand, sorting hat, and gryffindor scarf are made of colored fondant. The yellow letters are made from melted chocolate. I hope you Harry Potter fans enjoy this!
