Medieval Castle Cake

We had the chance to make another medieval castle cake, this time for a young 5 year old boy's class in Palo Alto. Two knights and a princess completed the scene. Inside was moist devil's food cake with fluffy buttercream icing.

Lego Ninjago Cake

We made this for my son, Andrew, who turned 4 recently. He loves the blue ninja and carries this around with him. The legos are made from fondant using a special mold we created.

On top is a handsculpted "ninja" made from fondant, along with "trading cards" also made out of fondant. Everything (except the candles) is edible! The key to an authentic-looking ninja is the "angry eyebrows".
