So, one thing I've been getting into quite a bit lately is cake baking! I love baking in general, but now I'm having lots of fun baking specialty cakes! It all started with my bf's birthday, where we all pitched in to get him an iPad! This is the cake I made for him:



Then, I made the birthday cake for an 8 year-old boy who loves airplanes! Here's his cake:



Anyone else love to bake and have some cool birthday cake ideas? I'm not a professional, I've never taken any classes, but I have lots of fun with this and would love to learn more about it!

Great great birthday cakes! I love how glossy the first one is and how colorful the second one is. What recipes do you use for your base? I am so in love with Rose's Heavenly Cakes.

For the actual cake, it's actually a creation of my own!
I just googled Rose, though, and would love to get my hands on one of those books! I used Easy Ice Fondant, and to make the iPad shiny, I used an equal mixture of vodka and corn syrup, which I brushed on - totally fine for a 27 year-old's bday cake, and it didn't affect the flavour!
