Lingerie Cake, Yo Gabba Gabba, Chinese Take out Box, Crawfish Broil cake and more!

It's been so long! By the time I sit down to edit and post photos these days, I'm too tired to even think about it! Here's a peak at what we've been up to!

Lingerie Cake:





Two different Yo Gabba Gabba cakes:





Chinese Take Out Box:

I'm super proud of this cake - I hand painted the pagoda's and wording. The noodles are buttercream made with the grass tip and the rest of the cake is fondant. I just love how the pagoda's turned out!





Crawfish Broil Cake:

We had so much fun with this cake! We just got our new airbrush so we were able to try it out on the crawfish and the pot. We wanted to make the pot look like it was a little beat up since this was ordered for a party that has been thrown for several years! I also got the chance to make a sugar bottle with this cake and I am so happy with the way this one turned out! You couldn't even tell that it was not real :) I made the mold for the bottle myself and with Rodney's help, poured the sugar for the bottle. Everything is edible on this cake except for the cup (it's supposed to look like a cup of frozen hurricane). Loved this project!









We've done a few other small projects here and there, hopefully I can get those up soon! (we also started testing out our new Cricut and are SO excited to share how awesome this machine is!)

I'm just blown out of the water with your Crawfish Broil Cake...I really thought the bottle was a prop - even looking closely, it still looks real.

It's been fun watching your work over time...you've always been talented, but the amount of detail get's more and more intricate. Great work!

Hi I have been asked to do a crawfish broil cake and I saw your and was wondering how you made the food look so realistic?? Did you airbrush your pot? My email is cakesbyheatherkerley@gmail.com
