The creation was made from vanilla cake, candy bar buttercream, rice cereal treats and fondant.
A Tribute to Fraggle Rock

Where's the Fire?
Frosted Art Bakery in Dallas created this fire truck cake for one deserving fireman who was retiring after 32 years of service. A fire hydrant, ceremonial helmet and a few flames decorated the creation that was made from chocolate cake and frosted with a chipotle chocolate ganache.
Go Go Power Rangers
One lucky birthday boy got the cake of his dreams with this Green Power Ranger. The Butter End Cakery used chocolate cake, butter cake, vanilla buttercream, rice crispy treats and fondant to construct the 3.5-foot character that looked like it was ready to save the world.
This 450-pound cake was out of this world. For Earth Day, Frosted Art Bakery created a planet earth cake that measured three feet in diameter and was finished with cotton candy clouds to simulate the aurora borealis. The cake’s interior featured flavors from all around the world, such as Italian buttercream, American pecans, Australian whiskey, South American chocolate and more.
Baby’s First Cake
The Butter End Cakery created this topsy-turvy baby block cake for a couple expecting their first child. Each block was made from chocolate-chocolate chip cake, vanilla bean buttercream and ganache. The entire cake was decorated with adorable animal characters and flowers from a local florist.
Frosted Art Bakery went above and beyond to design this incredible cake for a Dallas wine club. The towering creation was made from dark chocolate cake and chocolate ganache infused with an oaky Cabernet. It was then decorated with wine bottles, cheese, crackers and grapes—all made from fondant and modeling chocolate. The best part? The cake included a fountain that actually poured wine for guests.
