Cake Pop Practice Cake

I love a challenge. Recently, a family member asked me if I would make a Cake Pop cake for her wedding. Having never made one, I told her I would have to practice. I love practicing because it broadens my horizons and gives me the chance to try new cake flavors, which my family loves! This time I made a Chocolate Peanut Butter cake. It is delicious. Very moist. It made really great tasting cake pops.

I tried two techniques. I "glued" the cake pops on the cake with buttercream and I tried sticking them in with the lollipop sticks. Both worked. I was also thinking I might try sticking them on with corn syrup. I'll do that next time. I really need to work on making the balls a consistent size, but, other than that, it worked! Yay!

Birthday cakes!

 This cake was for my friend's husband who is the Den leader of their son's Boy Scout troop. I wrote the Boy Scout pledge all around the sides of the cake.
 This cake was supposed to be Duck Dynasty themed. I couldn't figure out how to make those Duck Dynasty guys out of frosting. So, I made a duck hunter and then wrote quotes from Duck Dynasty on the sides.

The above cake is my second fully, fondant cake. It has black diamonds and blue flowers  connecting them.

This cake is a Green Bay Packers cake for  a Packers enthusiast.
