Captain Spaulding Birthday Cake – July 2014

Devils Rejects Cake

So, my sister called me one day saying she wanted to get a cake made for one of her good friend’s birthday! I asked what his interests were and she told me that he loves the movie, “The Devil’s Rejects” so since Captain Spaulding is a key point character, not to mention creepy/wild looking we went with him as the focal point of the cake. The cake itself was half chocolate, and half vanilla with vanilla frosting. The stripes are fondant, and the Captain himself is a butter-cream transfer. I really, really love how clean he came out, and pretty proud of myself considering how much detail he has, plus my sister really wanted me to “capture the crazy in his eyes” so, I did my best to do just that. Instead of just having the typical “Happy Birthday” I went with “Happy Tutti F#@!& Fruity Birthday” which really just adds to the theme of the cake itself.

I was extremely happy with how it turned out, and not to mention this was my first crime/thiller inspired order! So when I get to step outside of the box with ideas, and designs it’s always an exciting process! From what I was told he was super happy with the cake and he had a great birthday! To any of you Rob Zombie, or Devil’s Rejects fans I hope I made you proud! 🙂

Birthday cake for a football fan!

I made this cake recently for my manager’s birthday at the end of October. He is a huge Oklahoma State fan, so I wanted to do something for his love of football. I searched the internet for ideas and came across this design on Wilton.com. I got the football pan at my local Hobby Lobby store, and he’s a chocolate fan, so needless to say, chocolate cake, with chocolate frosting! I used tip #3 for the outline, #18 to pipe individual stars all over the cake, and the same tip, #18 to pipe the white zigzag stripes on the ends. I piped “Happy Birthday!” and “OSU” on the cake board with, black sparkle gel, and sprinkled orange luster dust on the board as well. I’m very happy with my first football cake attempt, and he loved it!
