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!
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

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.
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 :)
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 :)

I have known Eva since she was 15 months old. The first cake I made for her was for her 3rd birthday, while I was taking Wilton classes. She always has a very specific idea of what she wants her cakes to look like. She doesn't like fondant, but decided that fondant details were ok :)
Chocolate cake, chocolate filling, vanilla butter cream, fondant details.
This was a fun theme I hadn't done before. A coworker of Justin's wanted a small cake to celebrate. 6in buttermilk cake with vanilla butter cream. Covered in fondant with hand painted fondant details

This was a new color scheme I have never been asked to do before! Hot pink, red and Carolina blue, the birthday girl's favorite colors. The cake is vanilla buttermilk, filled with a homemade strawberry jam filling, iced in vanilla butter cream and covered in fondant
Fun first birthday theme! I got to make a variety of treats for this party: Cake, smash cake and cupcakes.
The tiered cake was marble cake with vanilla butter cream, the cupcakes and smash cake were vanilla/vanilla.
