Pie cake or cake pie?

Since it is verboten for one to make their own birthday cake, Vinny made one for me. It is a cake made to look like a pie. Cool right?

Take my word, its a pie... I mean a cake. IT IS A CAKE.

See the chocolate cake peeking out? Cake I tells ya. Cake.

See? Spaghetti and Cake.... I mean Cake and Cake! Garrr!

A Very Spag n' Balls Birthday

Happy 42nd to my Vinny Vinny Coco Puffs. I ruined a perfectly good pasta roller to make this cake, but the effect was well worth it, right? Right??!

Fondant "pasta" with rice krispy treat "meatballs" covered in fondant.
Red piping gell "sauce" with white sprinkles for "cheese" and green sugar for "oregano".
Now THAT'S Italian!

Day of the Dead 40th Birthday Cake

You win some, you lose some. I made this for my best buddy Kristin's SURPRISE 40th birthday party.

The idea in my head was a kind of sophistocated yet dark look, since its an Over the Hill cake. I love how the chocolate brown roses turned out, but the overall look turned out to be more Day of the Dead with a few lumps and bumps then NYC Chic. Good thing it was a dark room. Everything looks better in candle light.
Win some, lose some... meh!

Lovely brown roses... you will be used again!
