Baby Turns One

This sweet little cake is buttercream with royal icing flowers. I made it out of a sheet cake and an 8" square.

I love baby shower cakes!

Witchingly Bootiful!

For a Halloween birthday. She was torn between getting the witch cake she wanted and having a beautiful (traditional) cake. I found this stained glass pattern and kept the colours traditional but made them softer. I carved this out of two sheet cakes: the top half is white cake, and the bottom half is chocolate.

Bakugan and Ben 10

We had a triple birthday for my nephew and sons this year:

This Little Piggy Turned 9

This cake was for a 9 year-old's birthday. He's covered in fondant with gum paste ears. The mud is buttercream frosting. A big thank you to my husband for the design idea and the carving.

Pickles and Ice Cream

This was for a baby shower. The cake is hand-painted fondant. The cherries are fondant with gum paste stems.

I had no idea on how to do the ice cream. I happened to Tivo a Food Network Challenge that featured food stylists and one of their challenges was to make a banana split. It turns out that fake ice cream is just a modified stiff frosting. I love how it turned out!

Elegant Wedding Shower

This was a buttercream cake for a wedding shower. The circles are fondant painted with silver pearl dust.

Butterflies and Ivy

Once again my camera is acting up and giving everything a yellow tinge.

This cake was for a first birthday party. I love the non-traditional choices of this client. The cake is buttercream with royal icing morning glories and butterflies. I hand painted the butterflies.

This cake is a white cake with lemon filling and 7 minute frosting. I did royal icing carnations in 3 shades of pink. I don't think I've done carnations since my cake class 15 years ago. I love their look!

Coconut Cake

Sometimes the cake orders are less fancy, but just as delicious! This coconut cake was white cake with lemon filling. I had never known that coconut cakes used 7 minute frosting until Perry's co-worker asked for it- I had just known it as that really yummy frosting! I'm super excited to know it now! Guess I'll have to hide the scale...

Getting Married to a Green Bay Fan

This beautiful cake is white cake with buttercream filling and frosting, topped with ribbon and fresh flowers.

The bride and groom's initials:

The groom's cake: white with buttercream.

The largest oval I could find wasn't big enough to get the 100 servings they were asking for, so I asked if I could supplement it with a smaller cake- something I think of when I think Green Bay and Wisconsin:

It all started with a cutting board. This is a cardboard cake circle covered with fondant, then painted with food colouring.

Then I added the "cheese". White cake with buttercream filling covered with fondant. I used food colouring to give it more depth.

Guaranteed to make a Packers fan happy!
