Armor of God Baptism Cake

When I was asked to make another baptism cake I knew I wanted to do something other than a CTR shield.  So I thought, hey, how about an Armor of God cake!  I loved making this cake every step of the way!!  And the flavors were yummy to!  Vanilla, strawberry lemonade, and mint chocolate chip.  And let me not forget to mention my amazing photographer!!  Brandi Teuscher is so amazingly talented!!  Please click on her name to see all her incredible skills with a camera!!!
 Greaves armor for the legs, CTR shield, leather battle skirt, leather chest guard, leather shoulder armor, sword and helmet.

 The sword was fun and had kind of a "Lord of the Rings" feel to it.  Made of gum paste

 Let greaves were made of gum paste and a super fun idea.

 This wasn't part of the actual cake, but I LOVED the fondant wood decoration on the board.  
 Gum paste CTR shield.  Had to get that in!
 Rice krispie helmet covered in modeling chocolate.

 It was really fun making that marbled leather look.  I actually loved how clean the cake looked.  Modeling chocolate is so great to get those straight lines!

Great job, Dallin!  For making a big decision in your life!

Strawberry Lemon/Lime Cake

Lemon lime cake with strawberry cream cheese frosting and lemon cream cheese filling with fresh strawberries.  My baby girl never got her actual birthday cake, so better late than never!!  Happy birthday Livvy girl!  We love you tons and tons!

Cherry Chocolate Celebration cake

My dad just retired after working his tail off for 25 years!  He loves cherry chocolates so I did a chocolate cake with cherry cream cheese frosting and a hot fudge drizzle.  Super yummy!!
