Sleeping baby and building blocks baptism cake

A two tier round vanilla cake with dulce de leche cream filling. The cake is covered in pink fondant stripes and polka dots with a sculpted gumpaste baby sleeping under a pink blanket. Each of the small building blocks is piped with a letter forming the name of the child being baptised in Queens NY.

Gold Leaf Fourtieth Birthday Cake

A delicious two tier white vanilla cake and chocolate genoise with alternating layers, and with Cannoli cream filling. I like the way these cakes look when you cut them with their multi-colored layers.

Light pink fondant covers the cake, which I then decorated with hand painted gold leaves and flowers, gold fondant beads circling each tier, plus a monogram I piped on top. The cake was delivered to a 40th birthday party in Warren NJ.

Wonder Woman Birthday Cake with Invisible Plane

Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) is my all time favorite super heroine. So I was delighted to bake this star shaped vanilla cake with chocolate cream filling for a 5th birthday party at the YMCA in Chinatown NY, as the birthday girl is also Wonder Woman fan.

I sculpted the figurine out of fondant and also built an invisible plane for her using isomalt! The finished cake included her Lasso of Truth, not shown in the photo.
