This the first cake I've made to sell (and my 4th cake EVER) so it's certainly not perfect but I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. The cakes are covered in red BC with fondant snow overlays. All the fondant decorations were made with the help of my wonderful sister who actually knows less about cakes than I do! :) We MAY have gone a bit overboard with the decorations but it's just so fun!! by aurora

CONTACT, GOAL ATTACK!!! NETBALL CAKE We were pleased to make this netball themed cake last week during our 'Cakes By Candlelight' phase. Despite being without power I managed to get this cake cooked thanks to my sister-in-law and then decorated it by candlelight. The cake was a vanilla butter cake covered with white ganache and fondant. Happy Birthday Alexie. www.cakesbythelake.com.au by aurora

I'd like to interrupt your Monday morning drudgery to present you with this impossibly important lumberjack cake. As you can see, the outside looks like a tree stump, while the inside of the cake looks like a red flannel shirt straight out of a Woolrich catalog. The cake is topped with an ax made out of fondant.

3D Robot Cake - I made this cake for my son's 5th birthday. It's based off of Way Beyond Cakes by Mayen's adorable robot cake. I made some changes (my son wanted his robot to have legs and a piece of birthday cake and some other small changes in appearance) but kept with her concept and colors. His feet are rkt covered in fondant, body, head and piece of cake are all cake and arms and legs are pvc pipe covered in fondant. TFL  :) by betsy

NZ Red Velvet Cupcakes - I have been trying quite a few red velvet cake recipes, and i have to say that this happens to be my very favorite. These cupcakes have a great and unique flavor, they are not too dry, and they are a very bright red. The year just gone I made some mini green velvet coloured cupcakes for St. Patrick’s Day, so know that you are able to substitute out the food colouring if you happen to want to go with a little something different. It certainly was a very fun change! I practically almost always prefer to use gel food colour, but with these cupcakes you will need the liquid instead.

This made me think of my own conversation with my younger sister. She hasn't seen most of the show, but knows the premise cause I won't shut up about it. Anywho, we we're watching the 200th episode and they mention how Adam is still in Hell. My sister was all,"Who's Adam?" So I show her a pic and her first reaction is "Ohhh, he's HOT." Yea, cause he's in Hell. With Lucifer. by shanna

John Deere Tractor and Combine Harvesting - This was a birthday cake for my son's 3rd birthday.  He is in love with John Deere tractors, and I promised him I was going to make him a John Deere tractor and combine harvesting as his cake.  After some wonderful advice from some of you here on Cake Central, I was able to really nail the fondant draping this time (still a few bad spots) but overall this cake is the cleanest and smoothest cake I've by elinor

Homemade mozerella - I've actually done this and it comes together so fast it's scary. But fresh, from-your-own-kitchen is so heavenly! We also added garlic to part of the batch and herbs to another and fried sticks (which were a mess, but my niece didn't mind!) You can play with the type of milk you use, but be sure to read all the tips and tricks; you'll be much happier in the end! by evangeline

The MOST GORGEOUS cake I've ever made Recipe ~ Says: The base is a fudgy and rich chocolate cake. Followed by the light caramel cake that's bursting with caramel flavour but not overpoweringly so. Then you have a simple, light white cake. It's plain but really so good. Now slather on the buttercream, because you want a light, refreshing frosting on your cake. Then pour over the ganache and let it flow... YUMMY! by LiveLoveLaughMyLife
