We made these cakes for quilt lovers. The first one for my co-worker's birthday and the second for my grandmother. I made the spools from gumpaste, painted them with silver, and wrapped them in fondant matching the quilt pieces. I used a Wilton fondant form for the buttons and ribbon piece. Even the needles and thread are edible!

This was the October cake for the Little Sisters of the Poor birthday party. While the leaves turned out okay, I wish I had done something a little different. This basket full of leaves may have looked better with more realistic leaves? It kind of reminds me of a fall-themed, construction paper craft project from elementary school...In other news, Jake made a very delicious caramel filling for this cake. Yum!

What happens when both of your parents love baking cakes? You get a ridiculous 1st Birthday cake! This was a fun project and challenge for us: tiered cake, fondant (way to go Jake), time consuming Gerber daisies and assembly at grandparent's house. We learned our daughter is quite the fan of chocolate cake!
