It was busy in the cake business for me this weekend! I had the tutu cake and two tower cakes to do. I got the tutu cake done first and moved onto these awesome tower cakes. I wanted to make the towers different from the beginning, so after talking to the parents of the birthday girls this was going to be easy. Assembling these cakes were a lot of fun. Each tower is four cakes and they both had a secured rod down the center and attached to the board that it was on.
Angela’s 4th birthday
The first tower cake was Angela’s 4th birthday and she wanted her tower cake pink. I love the ivy and flowers going up the cake. As I delivered this cake and saw the smile on the birthday girls face, I knew that I had nailed it.

Kate’s 5th birthday
The second tower cake was for Kate’s 5th birthday and she wanted a purple tower cake. The cake was a huge hit, everyone loved it. the detailing was fun too. From the roof top of the castle to the little flowers all over this cake was a joy to make.


I had the honor of making a tutu cake for Emerson’s birthday party. Having it be a tutu themed party, I though that this cake was perfect for it. The bright colors were perfect too. As you can see there is a 2 with sequins around it on the top of the cake, that was really fun to make too. The tutu is made up of four rows of hearts put upside down. I think

that the polka dots and orange bow add the perfect finishing touches to this cute little cake, happy birthday Emerson.

(I created a matching pull string pinata to go with this cake too.)

This cake was one of the funnest cakes for me to make. EVERYTHING was edible and that is what I truly loved about this cake. I hand sculpted all of the detailed items on this cake which include the pens and badges,  the buttons and tie clip, the hand cuffs and the gun. The shirt was a half sheet cake and the hat was 3 8″ round cakes, so needless to say this was a pretty good sized cake. The gun was crispy treats that I shaped to form the gun and covered with fondant. When I delivered it the birthday man was really impressed with all of the detail on it and that made me very happy.

I was asked to do my first baby shower cake and to be honest I was a little nervous about it. I haven’t done one yet, so I didn’t know what to expect of myself. Creating such a special cake for someone whom is expecting a baby is a big deal. Thoughts were going through my head like crazy, what if she didn’t like the design, the flavor, the colors, or even the cute little baby on top. With all of the emotions that an expecting mommy might be having, I didn’t want this to be one that she might throw her into labor.  It was nice that the mommy-to-be had an idea of what she wanted too. She wanted stripes on the top and dots with swirls on the bottom. She wanted a baby one the top and didn’t mind what the baby looked like, so I thought that a sleeping baby would look great. However, knowing what it is like to have been expecting before, I just thought of it as a cake that I might like myself and it just came to me and here it is. The colors were hot pink, teal, and silver. The baby is an adorable hand sculpted sleeping baby with black curly hair, all in which is made out of fondant and edible. I wasn’t too sure how the colors were going to look all together, but surprisingly enough I think it turned out quite well.

This was a surprise cake that was ordered by the birthday girl’s mom. She didn’t have a clue what was going one. Needless to say when she saw her cake she was speechless (one thing that she isn’t). Her mom wanted something that was girly and simple at the same time. The top tier was a marble and the bottom was yellow cake and everything is edible on this cake. I just keep thinking that this cake was perfect!

This adorable bowling cake was so much fun to make. This cake was for a four year old sweetheart. They were having a party at a bowling alley. What better way to celebrate then have an awesome bowling cake too. The only things that aren’t edible are the candles. The bowling pins are made out of gum paste (which the kids enjoyed eating) and everything else is fondant. The top two tiers are funfetti and the bottom tier is chocolate. Everyone was blown away and afraid to eat it, lol. Everyone thought that it tasted great though, yay. Another awesome cake done and plenty more to do.

A beautiful princess cake for a beautiful little girl named Samantha. This was my first princess cake. I have been wanting to try this for a while now and I think I nailed it. The only things that aren’t edible are the doll and the ribbon in her hair. I was surprised at how much easier this cake was than I thought it was going to be. The fondant makes a gorgeous dress with a little beading to finish the look and you have a beautiful princess cake.
