Those are gorgeous, you have quite a talent for decorating!

What’s on the inside (frosting, filling)?  Have you discovered Rose’s recipes?  They make the cakes taste as good as they look smile

Thank you… The red shoes are made of fondant..

I use all types of fillings except whipped cream.  I normally use buttercream or fudge or anything that is ok at room temp for at least 3 hours.  I strive for looks and taste,  and so far I have been successful with it.

Not all beautiful cakes taste terrible as well as not all plain cakes taste great.  That is my principle. smile

prettycake, each one is beautiful, impossible to pick a favorite.  The detail work is incredible. 

  You mentioned you sometimes use a buttercream frosting.  Do you have a favorite recipe you use more often?  Would you mind sharing it here, please?
