Pirate Shipwreck

This enormous Pirate Shipwreck cake was a labor of love, but it turned out better than perfect! The chocolate cake was carved into shape, frosted with chocolate buttercream, and detailed with many different mediums.
 The broken sail masts were sculpted from modeling chocolate, were hand-ringed, and painted with luster dust. The port holes were made from fondant and the railings and posts were made from tootsie rolls.
The frosting was planked entirely by hand to give the frosting a fondant look with a buttercream taste.
The boulders were made of marbled fondant. Each shell was sculpted by hand from fondant and the pirate flag was also made from fondant.
The treasure chest was made of solid chocolate and was adorned with gold and silver non-pariel dragees, as well as gold and silver fondant coins. The gold and silver vases were made from fondant and painted with luster dust.

Japanese Themed Catering featuring Individual Cheesecakes with White Chocolate Ginger Drizzle

In addition to making custom cakes, I also love to cook! When a friend asked if I'd cater her Birthday Party, I agreed immediately. She requested sushi and other Japanese themed foods and decorations. Sushi is fairly labor-intensive, so I left that to the professional sushi chefs. I also saw it as a great way to decorate my bedroom, as I'd been wanted to do a modern-asian decor. The menu was as follows:
Sushi
Japanese Kabocha Squash Soup
Sesame Soy Edamame
Pork Gyoza
Chicken Yakitori Skewers
Individual Cheesecakes with White Chocolate Ginger Drizzle

The sushi was kept cool throughout the party by using a thoroughly cleaned IKEA magnetic board with ice packs underneath.
The Kabocha Soup was served "shooter style" and was garnished with chives and a single chive blossom flower.

 The Sesame Soy Edamame was lovely in an elevated serving dish.
The Pork Gyoza and Chicken Yakitori were kept warm in a heated 3-dish crockpot.

The Individual Cheesecakes were served with stabilized whipped cream and a white chocolate ginger ganache drizzled on top.
It was an amazing party, filled with lots of laughter and very full tummies!
