Next January, I will learn how to work with fondant in advanced cakes. It was a lot of fun. Here are a few cakes for your viewing pleasure:

Springtime Baptism Cake

My husband's family keeps expanding and we have another baby girl on his side. This makes three girls under three years of age. So again, I was commissioned to bake another baptism cake. This was a marbled chocolate-vanilla double-layer
9 X 13 cake topped with vanilla buttercream.
