I made this cake for my neighbor. She takes my son to school almost everyday for me. I wanted to thank her for doing this. These are my first roses I have made. I used gum paste for the roses and fondant for the rest of the cake. It was a lot of fun. The fondant is homemade MMF and the cake is a vanilla pound cake.

I am really looking forward to the Cricut Cake by Provo Craft that is coming out. I can't wait to get mine and see what I can create. I have used my cricut in the past to cut out paper and then use it as a stencil on my fondant. That's how I created my Mickey Cake. I so look forward to this new product.
This cake was made for Josh's birthday. His birthday is in March so he thought this would be a fun theme. It was a lot of fun to make. This is the first character I have ever made...I know it's not perfect. When Josh saw it though he got so excited and said it looked exactly like his imaginary leprechaun from 2nd grade. The rainbow platter was made from molding chocolate. Everything else was made from fondant. I used a cuddlebug x2 from provo craft to imprint the number on my gold pieces.
