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 :)
