 Months ago, Eli asked me if I could make his cake. He requested a picture of Umicar and kept going back and forth on if he wanted lemon or chocolate cake. 
I decided I could do a little better than a picture. Umicar is lemon cake with lemon buttercream. The bottom cake is chocolate with vanilla buttercream. Milli, Geo and Bot are ricekrispy treats. 
This is my first carved cake, I am really happy with how it turned out :)

Game night cake!

A friend of mine asked me to make her a 2 tier cake to celebrate the one year anniversary of her company's game night at a local restaurant and to maybe add a couple logos. I went a little above that, lol. I really enjoyed working on this cake. It ended up being much more detailed than I have planned, but I LOVE how it cake together :) 
Bottom tier is buttermilk cake with almond/vanilla icing and top tier is chocolate cake with almond/vanilla icing. 

Rocket cupcakes

I really enjoyed making these cupcakes! Yes, I realize I say that about pretty much every project! These were made for Luca's 7th birthday. One of the first cakes I ever made, while I was taking Wilton Classes, was a start tip lighting McQueen for Luca's 3rd birthday.
 I have improved a littler since then, lol. Chocolate cupcakes with buttercream icing, fondant details.
 They were going to Duke Gardens to play with model rockets.
