Sink Your Teeth into the 18th Hole

DeeJay’s dad turned 70 and is a huge golf fan and especially the Masters Tournament at Augusta National. This to-scale cake of the 18th hole measures over 3 foot long and was a blast to build.

Makin’ McDonalds Sweet!

My son-in-law Jordan Baird likes his McDonalds food so much that it was a no-brainer what the theme of his 25th birthday cake ought to be. It was a lot of fun making it, and of course I had to go to McD’s for some research! Happy Birthday Jordan!

Celebrating with my (almost) New Son-in-law

My daughter Ashley dug up a pretty awesome young man from Idaho named Johnny Griffiths and decided she wanted to marry him! The least I could do was make him a 4-wheeling birthday cake. The photo below is some detail of the cake including the red 4×4 truck. Click Here to see the entire cake.

Happy birthday Johnny!

Merry Christmas!

A friend of mine was quick to point out that there aren’t any penguins on the North Pole. Obviously he never watched “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” when he was growing up. It clearly showed Kris Kringle with his friend the penguin. Duh!

Brain Popping Halloween Cake

Halloween is a great holiday for getting creative.  I used Red Velvet cake for the skull (of course) and modeling chocolate for structure and stability. The brain was especially fun to make all slimey.

Why Make Cakes
  • Why Cakes?

    My name is Brian Judd, happily married father of eight living in the city of St. George in southern Utah. I am an avid viewer of cake decorating shows - everything from "Ace of Cakes" and "Cake Boss" to all of the cake "Challenges". The incredible sculptures that they make out of flour and sugar are amazing. In 2009 my children dared me to give it a try. Surprisingly I heard myself commit to making the cake for my daughter's upcoming wedding. I had yet to make a single cake, let alone make or use fondant. The cakes shown on these pages are an illustration of my journey into the world of cake decorating and ultimately to my own cake business - "Dad Makes Cakes".
