Frankie and the Ghost

Being that Halloween is around the corner and all the stores are putting out their stock I was hit with inspiration when I laid my eyes on Frankie. I couldn't even wait for a sale; he was to cute to pass up.  And just who is Frankie, you ask?  Meet Wilton's Frankie! 


And of course, I just had to create something with him.  I've added a few new pictures. 






Now you know why I just had to run with Frankie and give him a sidekick for the season.
Here's how to do your own Frankie and Ghost snack cakes.

Super hero's and pirates... Oh my!

Hello again.  As I said in my last post I was busy in the early half of August making a Spider Man cake for my nephews 5th birthday. It was done in fondant and butter cream frosting.  I found the Spider Man figure and car at Meijer.   I took a hint from a book of my sister-in-law’s and got crafty with my cake board by gluing a red satin ribbon around edge to help bring it all together.



This past week I did a pirate theme cake for a friend’s son, made of fondant and butter cream frosting.




The ocean was a half sheet cake swimming with gummy fish. 

The ropes and the cannon were created from fondant; but, for the sails I used bamboo skewers stained with brown food coloring and then I pierced them through parchment paper to create the sails.  


The cross bones were done with a foodwriter, while the treasure chest is fondant and filled with edible pearls. The boat cake was made from small oval pans, then carved, frosted with butter cream, and then covered in wood impression fondant.  


I hop…
