Pink Roses Cake











Ginko Leaf Wedding Cake

This ginko leaf wedding cake idea was submitted by Julie M. of Rochester, NY, USA.


Decorating tips by Julie:

This wedding cake was decorated with real satin ribbon encircling the base of each tier. The bride had given me her invitation which had a ginko (tree) leaf pattern, and asked me to duplicate it on the cake, coming down from each tier. There were also birds on the invitation, as the groom was an avid bird watcher, so she asked me to incorporate those into the cake design as well.

Earth Cake and Cupcakes

This Earth cake and cupcakes were submitted by Julie M. of Rochester, NY, USA.


Decorating tips by Julie:

I did this cake and cupcakes for a going away party in honor of a woman traveling to Africa to work in an orphanage. I made the earth using a ball pan set, and stacked it on top of the round cake. I decorated the ball cake to look like our world, and then I put two little flags on it- one in America, to stand for her here in New York, and then one in the African country where she was going on the other side of the world. Then, around the round cake, I piped little African children holding hands. The guest of honor's name was also on the side of the cake, with the nearest children's hands extended towards it. 

For added servings, I also did the earth cupcakes, decorated with blue, white, and green buttercream to match the cake.

Sphere Wedding Cake

This sphere wedding cake idea was submitted by Monica of Lansdale, PA.


Decorating tips by Monica:

I made this cake pop wedding cake in May. This cake is covered in hydrangeas, there are over 1000 hydrangea in the cake.

Here are the supplies needed to make this cake:

  • purchase Styrofoam spheres(ball) in different sizes (8 inch,10,12) you may want to adjust the size depending on how many cake pops needed. I had 300 in my design.
  • I also purchased Wilton square 16 inch cake base
  • 1 1/2 inch thick dowel rod( home depot, lowes)
  • hot glue gun.

Push the dowel through the base (put a piece of cardboard under the base,remove the dowel and fill with hot glue and immediately put the dowel in the glue filled hole and hold it for at least a minute until it stands on its own and leave overnight to dry hard. This is the post needed to hold the spheres. just put a hole in the middle of all spheres slide onto the dowel. Start filling in with your cake pops use white melted chocolate to place the flowers on.

Standing Cactus Cake

This standing cactus cake and cupcakes was submitted by Chad Davis of Hollis, ME.


Decorating tips by Chad:

For a Boy Scouts dinner, my son and I made this Cactus Cake. It was a father son cake bake competition with a Southwestern Theme. 

When my son told me he wanted to do a cactus cake, I figured no problem. I would just do a cake in a rectangle pan and then cut in the shape of a cactus. He said "No Dad, I want it to stand up like a real cactus.

We developed a framework from 1/4" wooden dowels and made 45 degree angle connectors. Made chocolate cupcakes and frosted with butter cream frosting with tons of green food coloring. 

We filled the plant pot with rocks and then for the top 1", we broke up some of the cupcakes and mixed in a few mini marshmallows so it looked like potting soil. It won first prize out of 30 theme cakes. (It also tasted great)!

Candy Garden Cake

This candy garden cake picture was submitted by Kristy of Lawton OK, USA.


Decorating tips by Kristy:

Fully edible: flowers are made with a Twix stem, a ring pop for the middle, starburst petals, and brownie leaves; bugs: starburst, with details in chocolate. Grass is green tinted coconut. Butterflies are Reese peanut butter cups and M&Ms for trails. The kids had a lot of fun with this one. The funny part is when I was planning this cake I guess I was imagining a bigger cake so when I put everything together on this cake it got all condensed?? I made a chocolate cake in a 9 x 12 pan and used white frosting.
