Here is the cake I made for Dorothy and Andrew’s 50th Anniversary. It started out by having columns under each of the tiers, but it lacked structural integrity, so the top layers ended up sitting on top of each instead of with columns separating them.
The bit at the very top covered with “pearls” is supposed to be their monogram: “DBA” but it didn’t turn out as I wanted it to. I went with regular frosting instead of fondant, because it is way tastier!
Here is a cake I made forever ago. Jokingly people decided we needed a dinosaur cake. Here is what I ended up with. It was a million degrees outside, so the cake got drippy pretty fast, but it was still fun to make. The spines are made from chocolate covered graham cookies:
Here is another cake I made for Michael. Nothing too fancy, but I liked the way it turned out. It is a chocolate cake with vanilla icing, which I dyed purple. I used store-bought black frosting, because I can never get homemade frosting to look that black. The ghosts are made from meringue. We celebrated his birthday this year on the same day my friend Meredith was having her Halloween party, so he got a Halloween themed birthday cake.
