Cake Pop Angel Ornament wit Royal Icing

This little cutie is a great Christmas Break Project for kids. The wings, candle and halo are made with Royal Icing. They could easily be made weeks in advance to be ready for a fun quick project. They could also be made with white chocolate to be ready right away.

The body of the Angel is made from a sugar cone and the head is a cake pop covered in pink candy melts.

Another Sculpted Santa Cake by Leah

This Amazing Santa Cake is a perfect example of a combination of figure piping, sculpting and airbrush!

Grape Vine and Leaves Cake

Making a big design on a small cake is a great technique, but you have to be careful to achieve the right balance. You want the design to stand out but not overwhelm your cake. In this design the Vines and the Leaves don't cover the entire cake, there is a lot of space or (relief) between them. This Spacing is the key to having a balanced and pretty design.

I just love this Grape Vine and  Leaves design. It has  a fresh and yet sophisticated feel. It's a great design for a non-flowery birthday, or for the Wine enthusiast in your life. It's good for the fall as well as summer.

Sculpted Santa by Leah

Leah's Sculpted Santa Cake is made on 8" rounds shaved to create the body and head. His rosie cheeks are airbrushed and his beard is piped on with a large figure piping tip.

Sculpted 3D Penguin Cake- by Leah

Leah was looking for a Winter, but not Holiday, cake for  the cake at work. She came up with this Adorable Penguin. It's sculpted like a Barbie Cake with 8 inch rounds shaved into the body of the penguin. She airbrushed the black to avoid heavy black icing. The beak and the feat are figure piped.
