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!

Baking with the Boys

Happy Birthday, Grandpa!

Happy Birthday, Grandpa!

Many of you may not know that I have 2 very cute and fun boys, Benjamin (almost 6) and Samuel (almost 4).  They constantly ask me if they can help and generally get told no, because the particular thing I am making is going to someone else!  They are great assistants in the kitchen, so I enlisted their help to make my Dad (their Grandpa’s) birthday cupcakes!

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!

Giraffe-Themed Birthday Party

I created this package for a cute little man turning 1!  The cake, cookies and figures were embellished with hand-painting.  The smash cake was made to look like a giraffe.  I love the way the whole design came together!

Birthdays & Babies

The first 2 cakes were birthday cakes. I love it when cake requests come in for the same weekend that are fairly similar! I also love it when flavors match, but these two were very different! The gift box cake was Dark Chocolate Cake with Coconut Filling. The 30th birthday cake’s bottom layer was Banana Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Filling and the top layer was Vanilla White Cake with Orange Curd Filling. I like it when people are adventurous with their cake flavors too!

The cookies were for a baby shower. They were handpainted to match the invitations to the party.
