Bouquet on a Cupcake- Cake Decorating- video

One of my viewers on You Tube requested a Bouquet on a Cupcake tutorial. It was a great idea! It  makes the perfect one person cake, but doesn't look like just a cupcake. It makes a lovely small gesture that still is beautiful and  a "whole" cake. 

Placing a cupcake in a pretty cup adds another little gift as well as height to this design. Filling in the bottom of the cup would also be a delicious surprise.

Plush Bunny Cake In Buttercream-By Leah

Leah Sculpted this adorable plush Bunny Cake from 4 6 inch rounds.  It's perfect for a Baby Shower or Easter as well.

 While this cake is covered in Pastry Pride Whip Topping, Buttercream would also be perfect for this design.

Leah uses the top edge of a ziploc baggie to smooth and sculpt.

Cinderella's Carriage Cake- Cake Decorating- video

There is little more magical than Cinderella's Carriage. Leah and I jumped at the chance to create this fun cake idea. I had the idea for weeks before actually jumping in to making the design. I had to contemplate HOW to make this in a way that it would be stable  and sturdy as well as delicate and beautiful. 
The Horses are made of Cand Melt ( White Chocolate). They are quite delicate because of the legs, but easy to make. They are traced on parchment, outlined and filled. We had to make many of these to be sure we had 2 that didn't break.

We wanted the carriage to have the appearance of transforming into Gold, so we airbrushed the "pumpkin" and added gold to the wheels.

Spring Bouquet In a Candy Dish- Buttercream -Cake Decorating

This is a fun and interesting design to make. I love the idea of making a cake in a candy dish. I have so many glass dishes just lying around my house and I never thought of making a cake in them. 

One of our Friends on my face book page "The art of Frosting" shared a similar design with me. She said many Russian Decorators uses this method.

Water Lillie's Cake- Cake Decorating- Video

There is just something ethereal about Water Lilies. They are graceful and delicate and sweet. This design is also very versatile. It could be used for a little girl or a Mother's Day. It would also be very appropriate for a Farewell or Congratulations Cake.

These flowers are piped directly on the cake with 2 different sized Mum tips. The Lilly Pad beneath is piped with a large Rose Tip.

This flower would work well on a cake alone as an accent as well.
