It started with a book I bought.
After a few weeks of collecting the supplies, I tried my first one: A Pixie Teapot House. For a first ever attempt, I think it's T-rrific.
Next up is still my all-time favorite: The Grandfather Tree. He turned out amazing!
Third up, is a Booby Cake. LOL I never posted pictures, so if you click the link, you've been warned. It's not too bad, but still....boobies. I made it for my nephew's 21st birthday.
The next one was a Snow White Cake. Soooo cute (and notice there are no "back of the house" pictures. Not pretty. LOL)
I made a quick one for the neighbors-who-moved-away to thank them.
Then, I took a break (read: mortgage went up, spending went down. LOL)
So here I am in 2008, and here's the new cake. It's a Wizard Cake, but I want to call him Dumbledore cause I can. Nyah! As always, clicking on the pictures makes them bigger.
Bite Me, says the cake!
Yes, these towers of cake and butter cream are going to be really cool. Just wait!
The "stone table" with the green tablecloth is prepared.
Then Dumbledore's body is shaped. His body is that tall tower of cake you saw above.
Side note: I tried a new fondant brand that I bought on line. LOVE IT!! WAY better tasting than the Wilton brand you can get at Wal-Fart and Michaels. I also bought a new Gum Paste brand, which I HATED!! I'll be sticking with the new fondant but the old gum paste. I had issues with it. Just check out the wizards hands and magic globe - more like a magic pancake - the paste would not set. Grrrr.
Say hello to Dumbledore. He has glitter all over him but it looks...dusty in the picture. The poop-looking thing on the pink sponge is his staff, BUT as I said the gum paste was bad the darned thing took long to set. Check out his flat hands. LOL Stupid gum paste.
Little mouse taking a nap on Dumbledore's books.
Some bags o' magic stuff.
Potion book and candle (and mushy ball.)
Isn't he swell!
Oh, I finished him up at midnight. Isabel and I hacked into the table today after dinner. :)
