So Fancy!

I love pink and black and white and was so excited to try another shoe. I always like to try and improve on my last attempt. I made this cake for a 14 year old's birthday. Her mom said she loves shoes and the color pink. I've been wanting to try zebra stripes, so this was the perfect opportunity. This is an 8" butter cake with strawberries and whipped cream filling.

Happy Father's Day

So glad I got to do a Father's Day cake! My client wanted a cake that represented her husband and each of her kids. She's due to have their first girl any day and included her as well. The golf ball is for the hubby, the Dinoco car and Mickey are for her two boys, and the Tiara is for soon to be sister!
It was my first experience with a golf ball... and it took longer than I expected. It was also my first experience with a Mickey Mouse... one I hope to never have to repeat. Making Mickey look like Mickey is HARD!

Rainbows & Butterflies

I have another little buddy named Brady who turned FIVE today. Brady has slightly more sophisticated tastes and prefers rainbows and butterflies to cartoons. This cake was one that I've looked forward to making for a long time. My cake buddy Trish makes a beautiful rainbow cake, and when she wasn't available to make one for Brady's mom, who is a mutual friend, I was thrilled to have the chance.
This cake was TALL. I'm guessing somewhere along the lines of 9". It is frosted in vanilla buttercream.
I LOVE color. If you know me well, you know that I have a difficult time not painting every room in my house a different color. Yes, a bright green almost adorned my large two-story entry. Anywho, Brady loves color too. The cake had to be the full spectrum rainbow- ROYGBIV. Putting the butterflies on this cake was the highlight of my day. Just Beautiful!

Super Why!

My little buddy Jex turned FOUR today and I am so lucky his mom asked me to make his cake. He's a cute little red-head and he loves himself some SUPER WHY. Now, I'm not privy to the SUPER WHY cast, but it was a fun cake to make nonetheless. It was a small 7" Chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling... enough to feed 12 kids.

Sweet 16!

My client designed this cake herself for her Sweet 16 party. She was celebrating with a friend. I'll admit I was skeptical about the colors, but in the end, I decided it worked. 12" round tier- foam dummy, 7" square tier-white cake with chocolate buttercream, and 5" round tier- Red Velvet cake with Cream Cheese frosting, and buttercream.

My Grady turned SIX!

And what does he request? CLUB PENGUIN!!! My boys are currently obsessed, and since there were lots of colors involved, I couldn't turn down his heart's desire. This was a FUN cake!


A Luau for 30 kids called for a challenging cake! Well, not really, but that's what it turned out to be. I should have made those leaves out of gumpaste because they would not stop breaking off and falling to the counter. But, in the end, it all worked out and I was happy with the finished product. Not so happy with my picture taking skills.
