Ele-FUN-FUN-FUN... she is so cute!!! This is the first time I made a fondant animal, and it was actually pretty do-able. I made a time-lapse video, but the angle is not so great. I'll post it anyway, once I can get it off my phone... somehow. It is such a darling cake, with the punches of dark pink flowers on a light dusty rose pink ruffle buttercream over a strawberry cake, and a sweet blushing baby elephant, sitting right on top. I hope you like it as much as I do!
APRIL 21, 2015 UPDATE: Here is the video as promised! :) The angle is not so great, but you get the idea.

I don't think I've ever done three cake projects in a whole weekend! And for such different events!
A baby shower cake:
Wedding cake pops!
That's a lot of newness and happiness to celebrate! Congratulations to the new parents to be, the newlyweds, and the new graduate!
Now THAT'S a Chu On Cakes Order! A friend of mine ordered a cake to celebrate a new nursing graduate! She also ordered snickerdoodles and brownies too, which I was happy to do for her. She had helped me grow so much in my professional life, which in turn helped me to be a better communicator in my personal life!
It was really fun seeing the different elements of the cake all come together. the red stripe at the bottom was created using the clay extruder -- 29 inches all the way around. My favorite part of the cake was the Rx bottle and the bandages! you can even see the texture in the gauze part of the bandage. And the pills look so real! Check out the close up pictures below:
I got a request for 1/4 sheet half basketball and half soccer cake! I immediately thought of my ball pans, but they were WAY TOO BIG to go on the 1/4 sheet, so it's just a semi-3d cake :) Chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream, and fondant stamped letters - simple as that... Happy Birthday Peach!
