Winter Bridal Naked Cake

Recently, I met a local photographer through Instagram.  Her name is Lucero and she owns and runs Lucero Molina Photography.  She is a sweet young talented photographer with great vision for her work.  We talked and she asked me to collaborate on her latest photo shoot.  It was a styled winter bridal shoot and she asked me to create a cute little naked cake.  Her images are gorgeous.  Check her out!

The Cupcake Apocalypse

Recently (yesterday) I revealed my piece for a halloween baking collaboration.   This baking collaboration is brought to you by some lovely ladies within the app, Periscope. These awesome women announced it was open to anyone who wanted to join.  I was overjoyed with the news and asked to join.  Yesterday was the live reveal on Periscope and over 20 cake decorators shared their work. Check out all the images HERE!  I hope to take part of this collab again next year, it was so much fun watching everyone broadcast their work live.  Below, is my piece:

My piece started off as a zombie chick but by the end it was more alien/reptile looking.  So, let's just call it a monster cupcake.  I'm so proud of this piece, it was my first real sculpture.  I know my Marty cake looked cool but he was pretty much a rounded square cake and stick figure body.  I made a small video to show how i made the texture on my monster's body.

Back To The Future

Today is the day Marty Mcfly goes in to the future in the film Back to the Future II.  BTTF is one of my all time favorite film series.  As a kid I always dreamed of owning my own hoverboard, heck! I still do! : P.  To commemorate this day I thought I would make a cake. Mmm.  Proceeds from the cake will be donated to the Parkinsons Foundation.  So without further adieu here is a chibi styled Marty McFly on a hoverboard:

Also,  I made this cake thanks to the techniques I learned on a course given by Avalon Yarnes over at CakeMade.  I recommend taking it.  It was awesome and I will use the cake structure I learned in this course for many future cakes.
