This 3d purse cake idea was submitted by Flora Santiago of Studioi City, CA.
Decorating tips by Flora:
Half pipe cake I made this weekend. Chocolate cake with chocolate cream cheese frosting. I baked the cake in two 11" x 13" cookie sheets. Used 1 layer for the bottom and stacked 3 additional layers on either end. Shaped the stacks to blend into the bottom layer, cover the cake in MMF (marshmallow fondant). Sculpted the figurine out of MMF as well as the skate board. Cake serves 20-30 people. For more unique cakes like this, please visit www.sweetavenuela.com.
This waterpark cake idea was submitted by Julie M. of Rochester, NY, USA.
Decorating tips by Julie:
I did this fun cake for my friend's birthday. I used three 6" round layers I had, to make 3 different pools sitting on separator plates. I used my tall and medium pillars to give a multi level effect. Then I used a little piece of foam core to make little slides from one pool to the next. I used clear piping gel tinted blue to look like water. Lastly I figure piped swimming people in tubes all throughout the park! I made some with scared faces, surprised, and happy!

This relaxing fisherman cake idea was submitted by Julie M. of Rochester, NY, USA.
Decorating tips by Julie:
This was a fun birthday cake for a man. The sides and part of the top were iced in light blue to emulate water, and then green grass on top for a field. The fishing pole is a piece of spaghetti with a little thread attached. It's stuck into the ground near the sleeping fisherman who has his legs crossed and hands behind his head. There are multi colored fish on the sides of the cake, swimming "underneath" the fisherman's hook!

Decorating tips by Terri:
My husband made this cake for our daughter's 1st birthday. The Tipi is buckskin and built true to form. Good quality figurines and real rocks make this cake look awesome! The dirt/sand is crumbled cookie and gram crackers. The candles were buried in to give an appearance of a real fire pit.
This Merry Christmas Boy Scouts cake idea was submitted by Christina Fuller of FL, United States.
Decorating tips by Christina:
The cake was able to feed about 80 people. I used fondant and gum paste for the boy scout figures as well as Santa and the gifts. I used ginger bread for the house and the trees were made from rice crisp and then piped with butter cream frosting. The entire cake was frosted with butter cream frosting then sprinkled with powdered sugar for the fresh fallen snow effect.

MMF for covering but the store bought ready made is better for sculpting figures.
This beach theme engagement cake idea was submitted by Liz Coppus of Carroll, Ohio.
Decorating tips by Liz:
Bake (2) 14" round Cakes and (2) 12" round cakes. Frost and cover with dark blue fondant. Add a layer (or 2) of wavy fondant to bottom edge to simulate water.
Dowel, center and stack cakes.
Pipe Royal Icing sea horses, fish, hearts, air bubbles, etc on top of fondant. Make royal icing coral with squiggly lines and "jimmies". The white sprinkles used on cupcakes, etc.
With a leaf tip, pipe royal icing seaweed. Make as many fondant pearls as needed to create pearl border. Using edible pearl luster, paint each pearl (after placed on cake is easier) to simulate real pearls.
Mold some chocolate sea shells and place randomly around cake. Top with brown sugar to simulate sand and set topper on top.
I made the topper from a gum paste and fondant mixture and using food color markers for details.
