Emily has developed an interest in cacti and succulents and has an extensive collection in her room that she takes care of.  I’ve been dying to find an opportunity to practice my fondant skills and her 16th birthday was the perfect opportunity.  All of these succulents are edible, made from marshmallow fondant.  I wanted the fondant pieces to be the showcase, so I stuck with a square tired cake frosted with a simple texture.

For as long as I can remember Becca’s favorite movie has been The Nightmare Before Christmas. We had been talking about making a cake with this theme and I finally did. The bottom layer was decorated to mimic Sally’s dress and the top layer hints at Jack’s pinstriped suit. She really likes the silhouette of Jack and Sally so that was the main design on top of the cake.

She also wanted to bring cupcakes to her skating group so I made a batch that matched the cake.
