Jeep Rock Climbing Birthday Cake

 This picture shows the picture I was basing this cake on.  Pretty impressive in itself!  My friend's husband got this picture in a calendar and wanted to surprise him with a cake made to look like his impressive skills.
 I have to say, it was really fun doing this.  No fondant, just the cake built up then frosting and cinnamon and food coloring for the rocks.  The Jeep is cocoa pepples treat with modeling chocolate.
Notice the 'dirt' on the wheels?  Very fun cake that was a hit at the birthday party!  Happy Birthday, Max!

16 Candles "They Say It's Your Birthday" Birthday Cake

 Okay, I'll admit I had to rent the movie and watch the scene to get a good sense of what I needed to do for this cake.  I'm very visual, and I couldn't find any pictures for this cake, so the car wasn't quite like I wanted it, but it still turned out pretty fun.
And, I'm still not very good at people, thus the cute little smiley faces.  But, the actual cake?  HEAVEN!  Lemon cake, with lemon butter cream frosting and lemon curd filling!  And, gluten free.  SO yummy!!!
