Richard Scarry Cake

It's been a long time since my last post. Things have been busy in the non-cake part of my world. ;-)

A friend threw a party for her son who turned 4. His favorite books are the Richard Scarry books. So that was the theme of the party. I was asked to do a cake with some kind of Richard Scarry theme. If you don't know about Richard Scarry, then start with his Wikipedia article.

Water Polo Cake

I made this cake for a pair of high school graduates who were both on the school's water polo team. They requested a water polo cake.

This cake was for a 5 year old girl's birthday party. The criteria given were: Fairy theme, pastel colors, sparkles, and feed 20 people. Okay.

The Bunny Cake

My older brother called and asked if I could make a cake his girlfriend's birthday party. One of her friends was going to celebrate a birthday around the same time. One of the girls likes bunny rabbits and the other likes butterflies. I don't remember which one likes which. But that's okay. Neither one is my girlfriend.

Snowmen celebrating New Years

For my New Year's Eve party, I came up with an idea for a cake depicting snowmen celebrating the new year. It's a simple cake with the most complex part being a sled that a kid snowman (a snowkid?) was riding.

Winged Running Shoe

This cake was for a 13-year-old's birthday party. He is on his school's cross country team and we decided it would be neat to create a cake to mimic the team's logo, which is a sneaker with wings.

Ambulance Cake

I made this ambulance cake for a 7-year-old's birthday party. His parents volunteer with the local ambulance service. This cake is based on an actual ambulance in the fleet. I took some artistic license with the scale and some of the details.
