Bee a Friend Cupcakes

Miche Bags

Yes, it's a cake.  I was asked to make this for Miche bags, along with a couple dozen cake pops. 

Flirty Skirt

Tatum's Baptism

My little blondie friend, Tatum, turned 8 recently and she got baptised.  She asked me to make her a cake and how could I refuse?  Her mom originally requested the "Rainbow Butterfly Cake", but when I asked Tatum what her favorite color was (thinking it would definitely be one of the colors in the rainbow cake), she said PINK!  Of course.  So, I came up with this idea.  The inside looked just like the outside... gradated layers of pink.

Halloween Cake Pops!

Shark Cake

Twinners Train Cake

Two of my most favorite silly twinners turned 4 last week!  Their mom ordered a train cake for them and it was a challenge, but I am very happy with how it turned out.  It was mostly white cake with Oreo Buttercream filling.  The engine had a big roll of cake pop "dough" made out of chocolate cake and fudge frosting.

Jim's Jammin' Cake

Sarah's Cake

One of my all time favorites.  I love COLOR!

Apple Pops

Made for all my kids teachers during the first week of school.  I love how they turned out.

Mom's Birthday

My mom had a birthday this week and since she is my biggest fan, not to mention the best mom EVER, she needed a beautiful cake!  I kind of love how this chocolate with vanilla buttercream cake turned out.

I used Choco-Pan fondant on this cake.  It was my first time using it and I thought it was awful to work with, even though husband thought it tastes better than the Satin Ice.  I will be sticking with the Satin Ice.

Welcome Baby Keegan!

DoTerra Diamond Club Launch

This job was so much fun! I was thrilled to be asked to make 150 cupcakes for the Launch Party of DoTerra's Diamond Club. DoTerra is an Essential Oil company based in Provo. I was asked to use the oils in the cupcakes which was challenging, and so YUMMY!
These cupcakes were the Carrot Cake with Wild Orange Oil Cream Cheese Frosting.  That frosting tasted like an orange creamsicle.  SO GOOD!

The chocolate cupcakes you see are called Hi Hats.  They were Chocolate Cake with Peppermint Oil Marshmallow Frosting, Dipped in Semi-Sweet Chocolate.  The event planner tells me they were the hands-down favorite... gone in under 10 minutes.  Yay!  I also did a Lemon Oil infused Cake with Lemon Buttercream Frosting and a Sugared Lemon on top.  I ate one of those and it was pretty great too!  The lemon is really popular this summer.

Linkin's Toy Story Cake

You get a horrible indoor picture on this cake because there was no way it would have held up in the heat for an outdoor (best lighting) photo.  This cake was a challenge for me, most because it wasn't covered in fondant.  Again, to keep costs down we cut that out.  It is a chocolate cake with strawberries and whip filling.  That makes a cake super slidey and tough to work with.  Add the cream cheese frosting to that, which doesn't spread the same as buttercream, and this cake becomes difficult.  I bet it tasted amazing though!  I originally only had Buzz and Woody on the cake, but when I delivered it, Linkin added some of his other Toy Story toys.  The cake just looked better with them on, so you get his version of the cake.

Beauty and the Beast

I love how this cake turned out!  We actually did several things to keep the cost down, but I think it turned out stunning, despite those things.  Sometimes i just love a single tier, buttercream cake that looks so crisp it looks fake.

The Sloans Return

My mom served an LDS mission in Quito, Ecuador.  She was the assistant to the president and a couple of weeks ago, President and Sister Sloan came home.  I made this cake for the top of a cupcake tower.  Behind the figures is a volcano.

The silver SUV hanging off the mountain is kind of an inside joke regarding all their crazy adventures.
300 of these bad boys went with the cake.  I made red velvet, carrot cake, and chocolate.

Kodak Cake Pops

I was thrilled when I got a call for someone who got my name from someone else (neither of these people did I know, YAY!).  I love that my name is getting out there!  I was asked to make 300 cake pops for a corporate event at a convention.  My customer was coordinating the event for Kodak!  I love some colorful cake pops... even if they are ALL vanilla.

Kink the Roofer

These are not the clearest pictures, but this cake had too much work involved to leave it off the blog.  I made it for my cousin's grandfather who was a roofer in his glory days.  That house is a cake, and rice krispy treats.  Lots of little details on this cake.  Don't miss the little bird... he's my favorite!

Have a great day!

Breakfast at Tiffany's

I know my posts have been few and far between lately.  I have been a little less busy, but I've also been horrible at taking pictures before things go out the door.  That being said, there was no way I was letting these out the door before I took a picture. 
I made these cupcakes for a Bridal Shower with a Breakfast at Tiffany's theme.  The part I was most worried about was getting the right "Tiffany blue" for the frosting.  I did my best, but sometimes I have a hard time remembering that gel food color darkens as it sits.  Beautiful cupcakes copied from Hey There, Cupcake in San Diego.


 A Wolverine cake for a friend.  Yes, that's Wolverine's claws coming through the top of that cake. OOoooo scary!

Super Mario

My Grady's 7th Birthday Cake. He pointed out all of it's flaws and inaccuracies. Me thinks he plays too much Super Mario Bros.

U of U Grad Cake

Matilda's 1st Birthday

Matilda is my niece, so you can understand if I went a little overboard on her cake.  She is also the only daughter and only child of my only sister, so you can also understand if her mother didn't mind one bit how overboard I went.  I just lovingly refer to this cake as "Tildy's 1st Wedding Cake".  She liked it...

A Royal Wedding

I threw a party at my house to watch the Royal Wedding.  Of course it wouldn't be complete without a wedding cake, so I made this one.  I personally like it better than the actual royal wedding cake.  Those royals know how to do a lot of things right, but wedding cakes aren't one of them.  They are so gaudy and old school looking, in my opinion. 
Oh, I also made some white cupcakes with raspberry filling and lemon cream cheese frosting.  They were kind of divine.

UVU Graduation

My friend Sarah's mother-in-law graduated from UVU last week and I got to make this cake for her!  It was a cake that evolved into this design, as I tried my hand at stenciling again, and failed (again).  The stenciling was better than my last trial, but in the end, it wasn't good enough.  I started over and came up with this, which I am pretty pleased about.  This cake was 6 layers of chocolate cake and filled with chocolate mousse, so it was about 7 inches of chocolatey goodness.

Hoppy Easter!

 This is one of my very most favorite cakes that I've made.  I love it because it looked like a real Easter basket.  The weaving was not easy and had to be done a couple of times before it was perfect, but it was worth the work.  EVERYTHING on this cake was edible... the grass, the bunnies, and the handle.  This cake was for two twins that my mom helps tutor.  They loved it!

Flip Flop for Dawn
