Chanel Cakes!

 I was so excited to do these cakes for a big birthday
smash, being a fashionista myself.
I decided instead of a plain old full sheet cake,
to turn it into a huge Chanel Cambon  tote bag.
Just to add a little extra, I added a 
small matching makeup bag with little 
makeup accessories and pearls. 
The bags themselves were made of Strawberry MMF 
and the rest of the details were all fondant.

Atlanta Braves Jersey Cake

This past weekend was my boyfriend's
birthday and he is a HUGE Atlanta
Brave's Fan! So what better way
to celebrate than an actual jersey cake!
I really challenged myself on this one
and I couldn't have been more happier
with the result! I will definitely give
myself more time to get this cake done for
the next order! :D

Noah's Ark

This is my first baby shower cake! 
It was kind of a last minute request, so that 
is the reason for using the plastic animals. 
The entire cake was edible except for the animals.
Red Velvet with white chocolate and chocolate
buttercream. The cake went great with the
entire theme of noah's ark! 

Yankees Birthday/ World Series Champs!

Yankee's Fan Birthday Cake just in time
for the Worl Series Champs. This was for 
a family member and was just the perfect 
way to celebrate a small party! 
BTW this is what happens when kids are at 
the party and the cake is on a low

Ladybug Cake

Cute Little Ladybug Cake! I made it 
a little more modern looking. 
The entire cake was red velvet ( my specialty)
the ladybug was covered with red chocolate ganache
and the bottom was cream cheese frosting. Fondant
spots and red icing details! The only un-edible part
is the attenaes, the cake was delish!

The Cutest Themed Party!

 They just looked soooo adorable
with their rock star outfits and the cakes
just went sooo absolutely perfect with them!

Rock 'N' ROLL!

What could be better for a shared Jonas Brothers
and Hannah Montana Party, but 2 guitar cakes!
The Jonas Brothers cake was chocolate cake
with cherry filling and vanilla buttercream.
The Hannah Montana cake was yellow cake
colored pink and purple also with
cherry filling and real whipped cream.
Check out the close ups below!

40th Birthday Poker Theme

Red Velvet Cakes with Cream Cheese Icing,
there are a few fondant details such as
the #40 and the cigar and the dice.
(Just a tip Fondant is GREAT for decoration
but the taste...blahhhh....lol)
The cake was by far the most difficult I've
done and most creative! I can't
wait for more creative cakes to come!
Check out the side view the #4 decorated
like an Ace of Spades has a dice theme
on the sides of the cake, and the #0
was made to replicate a poker chip!

Black and White and Pink Allover!

I decided to try something a little modern
yet still elegant and girly with
the buttercream roses. I think
the black with the pink looks
so amazing! The scrolls
on the sides were a
new expierence for me as well!
Just in case you were wondering... the cake
was white almond cake with almond flavored
buttercream so refreshing and perfect for
an elegant cake like this!

Wilton Coure 1 Certificate!

This was such a great experience, I learned
so much and would recomend this class
to anyone who loves cakes or
just for fun! I took mine at
Michael's Arts & Crafts Stores.
This is my Course 1 certificate and
am happy to share it with you!

Wilton Final Cake for Course 1

I can NOT even begin to say that I
am AMAZED that I actually made this!
Who would've thought after completing
only a 4 week class that meets once
a week, you could complete a cake like
The only thing was the roses melted a little after
traveling home from my class, but back in the
fridge & they looked great!
I was extremely happy with my results!
It can only get better from here! :)

Pink Buttercream Roses

Handmade pink roses from buttercream icing.

are actually kind of easy (of course I still
ned practice!)

Straw-A-Colate Cupcakes!

Strawberry Buttercream Chocolate Cupcakes!
As my little cousin once called chocolate covered
strawberries "Straw-A-Colate"!
So I figured why not called these delicious
cupcakes the same! :)

Backyardigans Cake

This was my first ever tiered cake! It cake out awesome!
The colors the Backyardigan figures and everything!
The 1st Tier was Yellow Cake with Strawberry Filling
and the second was Chocolate Cake with
Strawberry Filling! I even added a little extra
something around the two tiers by adding
colored tootsie rolls.
( Cool Tip: To make tootsie rolls into round
beads melt them in t he microwave for about 10
seconds then roll them out in between wax paper
to be flat, cut into about 4 pieces and just roll!
It is really sticky so make sure you put a little
confectioners sugar in your hands!)

Amaretto Buttercream Recipe

Makes about 2/3 cup

2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
3 tablespoons amaretto

Beat all ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth = DELICIOUSNESS!! :D

Taste of Heaven Cake

This cake was sooooo delicious!
It was a white almond cake with
Amaretto Buttercream frosting
( See Amaretto Buttercream Recipe)
A layer of strawberry marshmallow fondant
(homemade) covered the two tiers!

My Version of a Train Cake!

My first ever train cake for a 6 year old's birthday,
there are definitely a few things I would've changed,
(like never use cool whip as frosting) :)

The kids loved it especially the oreo cookies as wheels
which kept getting eaten by the 2 year old brother before
the cake was even served!

but what can you do there just kids and they loved it
that's the most important part! :D
