Animal Prints

10 Dec

What’s a fun cake for a girl’s night out or your bestie’s birthday? A little zebra and cheetah print, of course! These cakes are covered in fondant. The zebra layer has fondant stripes. The cheetah layer has had its spots painted on with a little food color. The bow is black gumpaste! How can you not smile when you see this coming your way?

Hollywood Mike

18 Jul

I decided to call this cake Hollywood Mike because of the young lady’s love of Hollywood Glam as well has her desire to give a nod towards the former King of Pop. It was indeed a cake that utilized many different fondant and gum paste techniques which was extremely enjoyable!

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

The cake in it’s full glitz and glory!

Mini Purse Cake

14 May

Yes, it’s made of cake. And it’s sitting on top of an 8″ round cake. Since the customer was on a budget, I scaled back the usual fondant covered extravaganza so I could accommodate her price range. I think it still came out really cute, and the purse is all edible.


Sweet 16 Masquerade

13 Nov

What’s better than making an awesome cake? Working with awesome customers like Amanda and her mom Susan. They had a very specific look in mind for Amanda’s Sweet 16, and I hope I was able to give them what they wanted.

This is the first pillow cake I’ve made, and when you match that up with masks (my personal favorite cake decor), the possibilities are amazing! Inside the pillows are cherries and whipped cream. That’s sandwiched between two sheets of dark chocolate cake. The flavor is black forest. The mask is made of gumpaste.

Let me first apologize for the poor quality of the photos. I did this cake a day ahead of time and I was not there for the pick up or the pictures. I do make real masks out of leather and so I was very excited to make this cake. I hope it’s the first of many in this theme. (BTW- That  “18” candle was not my idea!)

On the Way to the Ball

9 Mar

I’ve been going through old photos. This is a Sweet 16 cake I did for a teenager, who was killed a year later. I had so much positive feedback from her family and friends about this  cake. Although the celadon / lime green color was not my choice, I tried to make her cake look like the  Cinderella fantasy she wanted. I think it came out well, and I’m looking forward to future orders for a similar theme.

Vanilla cake filled with marzipan and almond butter cream. Coverd in almond buttercream and royal icing.

Crown & Gloves Side Cake, same flavors as main cake

Glass Slipper- What's a Cinderella cake without the kicks?!

Full Table View- I think you can see a bit of the "Free" cake the hall threw in for free for their party. No wonder they wanted one of mine! 😉
