Hello my sweet blog fans! I am finishing up a huge wedding order for this weekend then I’m off to sunny San Diego for another wedding dessert bar and cake. That’s right…my bride is flying me to California to make her cake, crazy right??!!

Baseball Cookies

June 15, 2010

It’s that time of year again for the end of season parties for baseball. These were specially made for my son’s t-ball team. Royal icing tops these super buttery sugar cookies with a fondant baseball.

Aren’t they cute all packaged up?

Hot Pink Graduation Cake

June 10, 2010

Cheryl is one of my best clients, and when her family planned her surprise graduation party they found me to make her cake! It was so great to be able to make a cake for someone who is always ordering them for other people. I designed this cake with her personality in mind and I used her favorite colors. Congrats girl on on your accomplishments!

KISS Cake with Gene Simmons Character

June 8, 2010

When my client ordered this cake I was so excited! I knew it was going to be challenging, but my most challenging ones are always my favorite. When I finished this one I just stood back in complete awe of my ability to make this character on my first try. He is made out of gumpaste and fondant and sculpted and painted by hand. I wish I could just keep him on a shelf in my office, but I think the birthday boy would have been sad if I took him back. Happy 6th Birthday Aiden!

UPDATE: My cake was featured today on KISS’ website!   Woot!   Holla!

Two Peas in a Pod Twin Baby Shower Cake

My daughter has the sweetest Kindergarten teacher and she is expecting twin girls,  so when the class was going to throw her a baby shower and asked me to make her cake I couldn’t refuse! I made a bunch of vanilla cupcakes and a six inch cake for her to take home.
