More Birthday Cakes

These birthday cakes were done for a very good friend of mine whose father and daughter happen to share a birthday. She threw a party celebrating both this past weekend and wanted a special cake for each of them. Her daughter turned 2 and she planed a brightly colored polka dot theme, and her dad does a lot of carpentry work so she had asked for a cake shaped as a hammer for him. This was my first time doing carved cakes, so I channeled Duff and Ace of Cakes and ultimately was really happy with how these turned out. I ended up carving these free hand after doing a couple of sketches and then did all of the decorating in fondant.

    What great cakes! I especially love the two, the polka dots are fun and the white dots around the edges of the two look almost like pearls and contrast well to the colored dots around the outer edge. Good job!
