My Wizard of Oz themed cake done in a steampunk style. This cake is what I imagined Dorothy and the Tin Man’s cake would look like if they ever got married :) A labour of love as this took what felt like millions of hours!The map of Oz is all hand drawn with an edible pen, the shoes and tin heart are made of modelling chocolate. The cake filled balloon is covered with a sugar veil net, and the basket is good ol’ fashioned basket weave with royal icing.

Have you seen this amazing Wizard of Oz Steampunk cake by april_liza? The moment I saw it went straight into my faves!

I love movies with talking animals, but Ratatouille takes it to the next level… talking animals that cook! odrycakes’ cake truly captures the fun of Remy and Alfredo Linguini, great job!

I would have been pumped to see this cake on the table at my 18th birthday party! CeridwenR did a great job of balancing lots of bright colors and making the invitation inspiration her own.

Carousel Cake

Carousel Cake By megan1979
I made this carousel cake for my Daughters 1st Birthday. There was a small turntable hidden in the top tier and the Carousel slowly rotated.

This vintage carousel birthday cake by Megan1979 is absolutely darling. The detailed tiers are intricate yet playful, and I am so impressed by the rotating carousel top!

Hello Kitty Ruffle Cake
Hello Kitty Ruffle Cake By mfruchey
I made this Hello Kitty cake for my daughter’s fifth and my niece’s fourth birthdays (they shared a party this year). Petal ruffles were made using Bloom Cake Company’s tutorial, and I consulted Royal Bakery’s Hello Kitty tutorial for the figures.The cake itself is strawberry with strawberry SMBC covered with semisweet ganache and vanilla-almond cake with raspberry SMBC covered with ganache.

I have been a huge Hello Kitty fan for as long as I can remember, so I was instantly in awe when I saw this pink, girly Hello Kitty cake. mfruchey did an incredible job with the delicate, feminine petal ruffles and the intricately patterned second tier. Plus, the Hello Kitty figures are spot on!
