Coach Purse Cake

Coach Purse Cake

I like being able to create cakes that look like things besides cake! This one is one after my own heart…who doesn’t wish they had a handbag made out of cake (shh boys, you just don’t understand!) Happy Birthday, Jennifer!

Spring Has Sprung!

Spring Tree Trunk Cake

Spring Tree Trunk Cake

I made this cake for a school’s auction.  I love how all of the elements came together…especially the fungus!  Their theme was “God doing new works”…I think Spring fits in perfectly!  The entire cake was around 14-15”.  The little bunny was around 2″ long and about 1 1/2″ tall!

Sweet 16 Birthday Cake

Sweet 16 Birthday Cake

There have only been a few instances where people have asked me to recreate a cake that I have previously done before.  Most times, I will change elements of the design to make it a little new and fresh.  I think this is the first time I’ve kept with the original design so closely!  I love this cake design…it’s just so fun!  The mom wanted it tweaked a little to include the 16-year-old’s favorite colors: pink, orange and teal.  I love how they look like sherbet!  And I love the addition of the pearl luster too to make it shimmer!  Happy Sweet 16, Elly!

Grandma’s 80th Birthday Cake

80th Birthday Cake

80th Birthday Cake

This is the cake I did for my Grandma’s 80th birthday this past weekend. It is a culmination of some of her ‘loves’…traveling, teaching and gardening.

The bottom layer was a suitcase covered in edible luggage stickers from some of the places she’s traveled.  The next tier was the “teacher” tier and it had an edible blackboard, an apple made from puffed rice cereal treats and a turtle.  I did the top tier of her birthday cake with a flower pot made out of cake and the sugar Ranunculus flowers because for as long as I’ve been alive (and much longer I’m sure) she’s had envious really nice gardens in her homes.  The Plumeria blossoms were on the cake because she loved Hawaii so much she bought a pair of Plumeria earrings (which she happened to be wearing that day!)

Happy Birthday, Grandma!  I really enjoyed planning out and making your birthday cake!  You are a wonderful inspiration to me–your determination, stamina, hard work, thoughtfulness, caring, compassion and so much more!  I love you!

“How does one thank you for such an incredible gift–your cake, your talent, your time–all precious…a gift like that has such a short life, but it will last in my memory.” ~Grandma

Flowers & Butterflies

Butterflies & Flowers 1st Birthday Cake

Butterflies & Flowers 1st Birthday Cake

I LOVE girly cakes!  This one was based off the plates for the party (Hugs N Stitches).  I love the colors!  This is the first time I’ve done a stacked buttercream cake without borders and I LOVE the way it came out…very clean!
