I love how my super-adorable Jack-O-Lantern cake turned out! BOO!!!!

The layers... chocolate cake, buttercream icing.

Stacking it up...I totally cheated and didn't insert a cardboard half-way down the cake. I'm sure they will be able to figure out how to not cut an 8-inch-high slice of cake. LOL

Anatomy of a Jack-O-Lantern:

The son wanted spiders, so I tucked some in at the last minute....

Have a safe and happy Halloween!!!!!

My favorite car ever. Can I make one out of sugar? Oh boy....
The trick with sculpting out of fondant is there is no trick - it's just heavy and starts to crack if you handle it too much. So you have to work fast. This car didn't have to be huge, because this is only a 6-inch cake, but I think it turned out adorable!

The front end...

The rear -- I have always loved those Mustang lights. :-)

This is a Happy Birthday to a Grandpa cake: chocolate cake, chocolate icing and marshmallow fondant covering and decorations.
