Adorable Firetruck Cake!

This attractive Firetruck cake was created especially
 for a little 2 year old boy's Firetruck themed birthday party.

The color scheme for the party was red, yellow, black & white,
so those were the colors used for the cake too.

Close up detail of the cake,
 including the handcrafted mini firetruck cake topper, and
 the custom made name plaque... 
all created from sugar paste.
 Completely edible!

This is a Fudge Marble cake with Rich Chocolate Ganache filling.
Frosted in Vanilla fondant which is layered over 
a base layer of homemade Vanilla Buttercream.

'May the force be with you'... A Star Wars Cake!

This super cool Sci-Fi cake was custom designed for a young Star Wars fan.
The cake features some of the key characters that help to narrate the Star Wars saga... 

On the bottom tier is the young Jedi knight Anakin Skywalker...
 He is in battle with General Grievous, a ruthless and powerful 
antagonist warrior, who is devoted to the destruction of the Jedi. 

The top tier features Darth Vader (formerly Anakin Skywalker),
 who turned to the dark side to become 
one of the main antagonists of the Star Wars Trilogy.
He is shown battling with Luke Skywalker, 
a powerful Jedi master and the main protagonist of the trilogy. 

It is revealed that Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker's father. 

The edible stars surrounding the cake help to represent the 'wars' in space.

The birthday boy's name and age are custom made & 
designed to replicate the iconic 'Star Wars' title font!

This is a deliciously moist Triple Chocolate cake,
filled with smooth and decadent Chocolate Ganache filling.
The bottom tier is frosted with dark chocolate fondant(colored black) and
 the top tier is vanilla fondant.
