I made some Penguin themed food for a Penguin Party.
I made sugar cookies featuring the three types of Penguins.
This cake depicted an Adelie Penguin couple. One of them is setting on a nest of (chocolate) pebbles and the other one is at the bottom of the penguin highway.
Penguin Soup Bowl
I was inspired by Pinterest to make these bread bowls. I used this recipe for the bread bowl.
My department’s office manager retired after 30 years. She is planning to spend a lot of time at the beach, so I made her a beach cake. This is a white cake with butter cream frosting. The sand is brown sugar and all the details are made of fondant. My husband helped with all the details. Unfortunately, the turtle gave the little crab a black eye during transportation.
March 10 is Mario Day. So happy Mario Day to you.
To celebrate, I made a Mario roll cake. Video instructions can be found at Nerdy Nummies. It is a plain sponge cake with Dark Chocolate Ganache filling.
This was my first roll cake and it wasn’t a very big success – it is uneven and cracked all over the place. But it tastes ok.
My friend and colleague is an avid photographer and kind of got me into it as well. I’ve been meaning to make her a cake for a while, but I was very intimidated by the camera cakes I saw on the Internet. Then, I saw this, which seemed something that I could possible do. I modified the hair to look more like my friend and put her in an outdoor environment.
This is a vanilla cake with vanilla butter cream frosting. Details are also butter cream frosting with some fondant and flower sprinkles.
Insider photography related details: I made the background all blurry, because that is what you get with a low aperture and I put in some clouds to make sure her pictures would come out well. She also likes macro-photography, so I threw in some flowers for her to take pictures.
If you don’t know what Polkadot Afro, please see this video. I made this cake for our third anniversary. I saw this idea on Pinterest on our pre-anniversary vacation and bought the cake-pop pan from WorldMarket on the way home. I love the way it came out.
Ingredients: White cake mix with vanilla pudding mixes, and butter cream frosting with food coloring.
Inspiration: Once Upon A Pedestal

And some OCD baking and Ikea Love.
UPDATE: I found another cute Madagascar Marty Cake.
