Soccer Cake

Happy 2nd Birthday, Eric!
Carrot cake with buttercream frosting and fondant soccer balls with buttercream details. Making hexagons with frosting is a little is finding plastic soccer balls in Quito and wire in my basement!

A Killer Whale of a Cake!

Ok, so I know I'm supposed to call it an orca. This spyhopping orca was made for Andy's 11th birthday and he loved it! We're studying sea creatures in science this year and he requested a sea creature cake. Thanks to for the inspiration!
The cake was two layers -- a white cake with blue swirls (which turned out quite cool looking) on top of a chocolate cake (we called this part the abyss). Frosted with buttercream frosting and fondant sea creatures. Did you know that sea snakes have paddle-shaped tails? They're also supposed to have stripes. The orca was formed with Rice Krispie treats and covered with buttercream frosting.
