Tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff.
He's Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh.
Willy nilly silly ole bear.
~Winnie the Pooh song
Interest in the Pooh bear has waxed and waned since I made my first Pooh cake in 1999, but he still has a loyal following! After all, he's been around in some form since 1924.
Minnie must be making a come-back (or perhaps she's never been out of style!) because I still get requests for her in all her frosted glory. I heart Minnie Mouse.
This was for Joann, a local realtor, as requested by her husband for her birthday! Unfortunately, her hubby ordered the cake flavor that she does NOT like (men!) but she thought it was cute anyway.
When you have two daughters, you host your share of Princess themed parties. Princess Storybook Party, Princess Spa Party, Cinderella Theatre Party, and the list goes on! We've mixed things up a bit with cookie cakes and individually decorated cookies over the years.
I have done several variations of Dora the Explorer cakes over the years; my girls, when they were younger, adored her!
Very often I am given a party napkin or invitation as the starting point for one of my cakes. This was one of them--invitations, napkins, plates and favors to match!
I love how this cake turned out! I also love the character of Merida from Disney's Brave, so it was fun to create this cake. All decor made from fondant or gumpaste.
A variation on my earlier 3D Pirate Cake, only this one was slightly better. (Got my "sea legs" now!) This was supposed to be the Wiggles' Pirate Ship so I used Wiggles' colors.
Getting caught up with a couple of years (yes, years) of cake pics that I've been sitting on for a while!
Thank goodness for Flickr's sharing options, which makes it possible to post the new(er) pics directly onto this blog as well as my Pinterest and Facebook pages. Love social media sharing!
Unfortunately, getting the pics on my main website will be more time-consuming, but I'm working on it! Meanwhile, enjoy the slide show above of all the pics or the separate posts about each.
