A Star Wars Cake for a Six Year Old

Today's cake is a Star Wars themed cake that I did for a little girl. How fantastic is that?! Two-tiered and adorned with handmade fondant cake toppers. Iced is tasty buttercream I used my trusty airbrush to create an ombre effect to transition from Vader's "dark side" to Leia's side of salvation.

Well I finally did it. I finally got a website together. You can now view a collection of past completed cakes, a list of flavours and a breakdown of prices. I think the site is still a work in progress but at least now I have an official web location that clients can go to. Please check it out and let me know what you think. I would love to hear an objective opinion. : )

Minion Cake for a 3 yr. old

Minions! This hot trend doesn't seem be going anywhere anytime soon. I have to say that they are very fun to make so I don't mind at all. 

This is a two-tiered vanilla cake covered in buttercream and fondant appliques. The cake topper is about 5" tall and made of fondant.
