A few cake pics to get started with...

Here is a beach themed cake. The shells, starfish, sand dollars & flowers are made from gum paste. The sand is a combination of crushed gram crackers, brown sugar & white sugar.

Purse cakes are super fun for any girl!

Happy 50th Birthday Mom!!!
A 3-D, Hand Carved, 1967 Corvette! The windshield is sugar candy & the family is made from gum paste.
This cake was personalized to the couple! It was their 65th wedding anniversary & she makes quilts of all shapes & sizes. I used coordinating colors & laid a fondant quilt over the bottom tier & made gum paste spools of thread & tomato pin cushion. He worked in the lumber industry for years w/ his Belgium blend horse "old Tom" so I created stand out tree stumps from gum paste & "old Tom" & some trees from fondant for the middle tier. The family also wanted a classic element for their anniversary so I did this on the top tier. Three tiers that in & of themselves did not go together but they worked because I kept the color scheme through each tier.
