Mini Vinny

This cake was made for a 90th Birthday for a grandfather that loves Bingo.
I was given a picture of Vinny and told that he loves to wear suspenders,
this is what I came up with:
The only piece that isn't edible on the cake is wire glasses:

America Runs on CAKE...

Close up of the fondant donut that I hand-made to go on the cake. It's not pictured in the next few pictures because I added it to the side when I got to the party site:

This cake was 4 layers made with buttercream frosting:

Snakes, snails and puppy dog tails...

This cake was made for a very special baby shower. My cousin, Gina, is expecting a son- Liahm in March so along with my cousin Leigh, mom and sister (and tons of help from Paige), we threw Gina a "Little Boys Are Made Of..." shower.
This was the cake I came up with to match the theme and shower invitation:

Oh yeah... and cake, too!

Gina loves frogs, so we made sure to include one:
The cutest snake and worm-ever! Isn't that an oxymoron?
(Thanks to Chelsea & Paige for these cute creatures)
