Harry Potter 7th Birthday

This cake was fun and a challenge! It was a challenge, because I have never read or watched any Harry Potter. So, I turned to google searches to get ideas for this cake. I am really happy with how it turned out :)
Chocolate cake, vanilla buttercream filling, covered in fondant. The details are fondant and gum paste

5 tier petal wedding cake

This is my biggest cake to date! 5 tiers, 3 vanilla buttermilk, 2 chocolate :) I made this cake for Justin's cousin, Sarah's wedding. It was definitely time consuming, but I really like how it turned out. The flowers are gumpaste and the topper was provided by the bride.

Ruby red 40th anniversary cake

I have to confess that when my lovely friend, Tracy,  told me they were using carnations for center pieces a little piece of me freak out. I hated the original way I learned how to make carnations! So, I decided to turn to youtube for help! I am sooooo glad I did. I LOVE how these turned out! Bottom tier is chocolate with peanut butter icing, middle tier is buttermilk cake with vanilla icing, top tier is chocolate with vanilla icing. I also made two dozen cupcakes to go with the cake but forgot to take pictures of it.

Puppy cupcakes!

 I don't usually take last minute orders, but as I had some time yesterday I decided to take on this one. The dad sent me a message around noon yesterday asking if I could please make some cupcakes for the last minute party he was putting together for his daughter today.

 Dozen vanilla, dozen chocolate, all with vanilla buttercream and fondant toppers. I had a lot of fun making the little puppies! I love how cute and bright they are :)

These were done for a little girl's 4th birthday. Chocolate cupcakes with vanilla butter cream and fondant toppers. I am not a girly girl, but I really liked these :)
