Princess Castle and Dragon Cake

The castle cake I made for my daughter's 2nd birthday. It was made with a 9x9 square baking pan, a 6 in round pan, cup cakes and ice cream cones. The water around the castle was made of blue gel icing. And the trees were made of ice cream cones.

My son was turning 8 around the time of my 2 year olds birthday, and he wanted a dragon cake. I cannot take all the credit for this one, my husband cut and positioned the dragon. All I had to do was frost it. We used a 13x9 baking pan for this particular cake.  For the wings, feet, and horns we died and molded fondont.

These two cakes were huge hits, and they were egg free and milk free!

Thomas the Tank Engine

Ok, I cheated on this cake. I bought a train cake pan. My sons 4th birthday was in the same week as the dragon and castle. We were caked out. I made the coal car in a loaf pan, and was in a hurry and forgot the wheels. I don't think anyone noticed, if they did no one said anything.

Cala lilies

 

 

I made this cake for my mother-in-laws friend at her work place.  It was made of 4 different colors of purple.  Looking at the right of the picture you can see where I tried to salvage it.  The cake was seriously too moist.  I put the frosting on and the cake fell off :)  The cala lilies and the bow were handmade of fondant.   

 

I have many others that will be updated soon.

This is a bad picture, but the cake turned out ok anyway.  It's a balloon.  It has the glare of a balloon and the string as well.

Hi love your cakes......pls hw did you support †ђξ head of †ђξ horse. mailakinwale@yahoo.com

I don't know if you just eliminate eggs alltogether or what in you cakes but i noticed you said 1 of you egg free cakes or cupcakes didmt rise. I don't use eggs in my cakes at all, I use a substitute called ener-g and it works like a charm. And doesn't change the taste at all. Jcnetc.com
