More Cakes

I’ve been having fun with my newest little hobby. (See here for the original post.) Here are a few more I’ve done recently:

This one is a soccer themed birthday cake for our friend JR. I used marshmallow fondant for the hexagons and didn’t really realized I’d have to decrease their sizes as I got to the bottom, but the writing covered that up. So simple and so cute!

Since I already knew what I was doing with soccer cakes, I volunteered to do one for our team soccer party at the end of the season. I put all of the girls names on it along with the coach, and they all loved finding their name on it. It seemed to be a hit!

IMG_1085 Here’s my latest creation. Sorry for the bad lighting. This was for a friend who recently went to South Africa and played with the lion cubs. Her mom requested I show that – quite a challenge! But, I had some fun learning with modeling chocolate and made a replica of my friend as well as a couple of playful lion cubs that came out cute, I think! The background is the South African flag, and I thought the outline of Africa was a fun touch as well.
