Murder mystery party cake





I had so much fun with this cake! I have had the pleasure of working on some great cakes this past year, but this may be my favorite! This one was for Erin's new years murder mystery party. I spent a good bit of time on it and then got to cover it in blood :)  The party was a ton of fun!

Chocolate petal cake

Isabelle does not like fondant and loves chocolate. So, I made a chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream. The flower is gum paste and the letters are fondant. This is another take on the petal effect. I really enjoy playing with butter cream from time to time :)

Lili's 5th birthday cake :)



I have had the pleasure of knowing Lili all her life, and every year her birthday cake is her gift from me. This year she drew what she wanted her cake to look like, only she wanted it to the pink and have green, purple and pink butterflies. She only have blue and purple crayons available when she made the picture. 
Chocolate cake, vanilla butter cream, covered in fondant with fondant details. 
She loved it, and that's all that matters :)

Giraffe baby shower cake and cupcakes


I really enjoyed working on this sweet baby shower cake and cupcakes! I haven't done too many gumpaste sculptures, but I am really enjoying getting to play around with it lately. The cake was chocolate and the cupcakes vanilla. The couple has decided to not find out the gender of the baby, so we went with a gender neutral colors :)

"On the day you were born" themed first birthday cake




I had never heard  of this book, so the mom sent me pictures of the pages they liked most and the quote she wanted included. It took me over an hour to cut out the letters, but I really like the finished product. The mom did too :) Chocolate cake, vanilla butter cream, covered in fondant with hand painted fondant details

Girly silhouette birthday cake

Chocolate cake, vanilla buttercream, covered in fondant with fondant details.
I am not girly, but I am happy with how this one turned out. I love black and white, and it worked well with the pink girly details :) 

Christmas fudge covered oreos






The couple weeks before Christmas I made lots of fudge covered oreos, over 400, they are really yummy! And a great gift for any time of year! As a matter of fact, I am working on some right now. Updating the blog as some set :)

Snowflake cake :)



I wanted to try something new for Siegrid's cake. I decided to do a chocolate cake with beijinho, a Brazilian coconut fudge candy, for the filling. It's my first time covering a cake in ganache. The snowflakes are fondant. It was super yummy!

Snow flake cupcakes :)




I have been having fun with snow flakes! The mini cupcakes I made for the nursery workers are church and the regular ones for a holiday dinner with friends :) Vanilla cupcakes with vanilla icing and chocolate cupcakes with chocolate peppermint icing. The snow flakes are fondant painted with pearl dusts

Christmas cupcakes :)



Chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter icing. Perfect for teacher gifts or hostess gifts for holiday parties :)

White and Gold birthday cake




I broke a lot of my own rules on this cake. I don't usually decorate cakes other people make, but for this one I made an exception. The birthday girl requested a white cake with gold details and left the design up to me. I love how the flowers turned out. I think this design would work for an anniversary or wedding as well.

Red and Blue Flowers: Kate's cupcakes




I have known Kate for 6 years now and have gotten to do some fun cakes for her. This year she had a party that included a cake at the Skate rink, so her mom ordered a dozen cupcakes to just celebrate at home. Pumpkin cupcakes with vanilla butter cream. Fondant toppers and gum paste flowers. This was a fun color scheme I hadn't used before :)

Minnie mouse inspired cake and smash cake



I love how these turned out! I don't do many disney inspired cakes, but I was happy to do this one as it's not too literal of an interpretation. Buttermilk vanilla cake, strawberry filling, vanilla buttercream, all covered in fondant with fondant details. The little cake is a 4inch cake, I love my little new pans :)
