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 :)

lots of cupcakes

Justin's cousin wanted to order cupcakes to celebrate her best friend's birthday. She decided she wanted the cupcakes to celebrate a lot of his interests. One dozen blue velvet, one dozen carrot cupcakes. All with custom fondant toppers.

Eva's 7th birthday, purple flower cake

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.

Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) cake

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.
