Two for one...

This cake is for TWINS, a boy and a girl!

Asher wanted a Star Wars cake, of course, and Anna wanted a princess Tiana cake. The mom wanted one...
I made each cake completely separately so that I wouldn't be concerned about matching the cakes. The mom wanted both kids to have a special cake of their own, so I didn't want to pick colors or patterns to coordinate, I wanted to pick what worked for each theme.

Anna's Princess Tiana cake is a french vanilla with a traditional butter cream filling and icing. The topper is a toy that she can enjoy after the party.

Asher's Star Wars cake is a Milky Chocolate cake with a traditional butter cream filling and icing. Both action figures light sabers light up, but obviously they will be turned on at the party.

Happy 5th Birthday Anna and Asher!
PS: Michelle, I am in awe at the thought of bringing two babies home from the hospital- You Rock!

Is your crown on straight girl...

So here is another princess cake. The little girls love this cake, and I got so tickled at church this morning, because there are two sisters one who is turning 3 and one turning 6 and both are waiting patiently for their princess cakes.

It reminded me of a really bad day I had. I was on the phone with my mom, and after cheering me up a bit, she said "Girl, get your crown on straight, you're the daughter of the Almighty King" That imagery is so special, and is SO true.

Girl... Is your crown on straight today? Don't forget YOU are the daughter of the Almighty King, our Lord! You are more precious than rubies. Check it out in Proverbs 3:15!

Back to this yummy cake... Connally wanted a french vanilla cake with traditional butter cream icing between the layers, and rolled fondant icing. EVERYTHING on this cake is edible, even the glittery crown!

Pink, Pink, and Pink...

This cake was made for a little girl whose favorite color is Pink!

This bottom tier of this cake is french vanilla and the top tier is a dark chocolate. The cake is iced in a tradition butter cream icing and the polka dots and flowers are made of fondant. Notice the little french dragees in the center of each flower. Also, the picture doesn't do it justice, but this little girls momma makes jewelry so you know she likes "BLING". Each polka dot is covered in edible glitter, and the edges of each flower are dusted. It sparkles!!!

I really love the ruffle around the bottom of each tier, I think it is a very feminine finish!

Happy Birthday Little Missy, enjoy your Pink Cake!

Pink and Brown...

This is a cake for a soon to be first time Mom! She loves carrot cake and her nursery is pink and brown, so...
This dense carrot cake is iced with a very creamy cream cheese icing. Traditional pecans are around the side of the cake, and on top are a collection of cute little toys for a baby girl. A little bear, rattle and blocks, all made of fondant and edible.

Happy Birthday...

This cake was made for Wendy. Her friends requested it say Happy Birthday in Chinese. I was sent the simple Chinese calligraphy for Happy Birthday and am hopeful it translates well in butter cream!

The cake is a french vanilla cake with a creamy chocolate icing. The calligraphy and flowers are red, because red is a lucky color in China. There are also 8 flowers on the cake, because 8 is a lucky number. There are 7 on the top of the cake and one on the side.
Happy Birthday Wendy!

Baseball Ready...

These cupcakes are made for a little boy who loves baseball! I made 12 classic chocolate, and 12 french vanilla!

Sweet Treat...

This cake is to celebrate a teacher's birthday. The mom wanted to make sure that the teacher would know that she is NOT to share this cake, so we made it a 6" round, double layered of course...
Since the teacher likes chocolate, this is a dense chocolate cake with chocolate filling, a creamy chocolate icing and dark chocolate ganache on top. The flowers on top are made of sugar paste. Is your mouth watering? Mine is...

Psalm 34:4

"I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all of my fears."

These cupcakes were made for a little boy who chose to be baptised today. He has chosen to be made new in God's love. Can you imagine the joy and peace his mother feels today!

He is 7 and loves red, blue and baseball, so these are the cupcakes they will use for their celebration!

36 cupcakes, half chocolate, half french vanilla, all good!

Jason's 40th...

My husband turned 40 years old this past Sunday. We met when he was just a mere 29! :) We had a huge surprise party for him on Sunday and he was completely surprised! I of course made the cake.

He is English as I've mentioned before and this is the flag of England the St. George.
The cake was a very moist dark chocolate cake, a layer of butter cream and them covered in rolled fondant.

Toni's Cake

So, if you have ever spent any time with me at all, you know that I drink coffee. Probably too much, but I have three kids under five and it works! :)

Toni is my girl at Starbucks, she knows me, knows my drink preferences and even better than that she makes me smile. Her Starbucks crew know her as "Diva" She is fun to be around!

Her third baby, and first Son's birthday is today. His name is Truth. This is my gift to Toni, she is a wonderful person and I hope she and her family enjoy his birthday today! Let them eat CAKE! :)

This is a dense yellow cake with a classic chocolate icing. Classic yummy combo! She calls her son Bam Bam because he bangs on everything. That is why there is fondant completely edible Bam Bam on top!

Happy First Birthday Truth!

Psalm 119:10

"I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands"
Henry is being baptised this weekend, and as a Christian this verse clearly states my own hearts desires, but as a mother it sure is what I hope my children desire too.

Henry, you are loved. Know that!

This decadent cake is to celebrate the joyous occasion! It is a rich vanilla cake with traditional butter cream as a filling and then iced in butter cream. All piping in butter cream.

Celebrating in Spring...

OK, so it feels like summer, but these pastel hues, will be beautiful year round. I made a dozen of these cupcakes to celebrate an anniversary. I was flattered that I was asked to make these since they were made for a lady who publishes an online culinary magazine..
Check it out

That kind of makes me almost famous right?? :)

These cupcakes are lemon with a classic swirl of butter cream icing, and a fondant medallion and flower on each cake.


These are classic colors together. Red, white and black. This cake is for a wedding shower. The top cake is french vanilla with raspberry filling and the bottom tier is chocolate with raspberry filling. The cake is iced in butter cream and scroll work is butter cream. The bow on top is fondant.

Much happiness, and blessings for the soon to be Mr. and Mrs!

Let's Play Ball...

I made 12 of these classic white cake's with butter cream icing and a sugared baseball on top for a family of three boys. Their grandma is in town, and decided to treat them to a yummy home made treat! Lucky Boys!

8 years...

This past Tuesday was our eight wedding anniversary. In some ways that seems about right, and in other, I can hardly believe it and think it must have been yesterday we were married.

Pottery or bronze are the traditional gifts, and J got me these beautiful stacking cake plates. I love them, and since this blog is about cakes, I didn't think posting a picture of them was too off topic. Aren't they pretty!

John 8:12

"I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life."
Two cousins will be dedicated this weekend. What a wonderful celebration for both families. Celebrating our promise as Christians, and the birth of two boys who will grow, encourage, and love each other!

Pretty in Pink...

This cake was made for Ella's first birthday. She is having a celebration with her family this weekend! Simple and sweet for her birthday! I'm sure everyone will enjoy the occasion.
This is a french vanilla cake with strawberry filling and butter cream icing. Flowers and dots are fondant.

Little Gymnast...

These cupcakes were made for a little girl who is having a gymnastics party. I made 24 for her with different colored hula hoops on each. The hula hoops are made of fondant and it is my understanding that each child will get a hula hoop as a party favor too. FUN STUFF!

Happy Retirement...

This is the second time I've made this cake, but this time it is bigger! This is a 12" round cake on the bottom and the top tier is a 6" cake.

This is an Italian cream cake with a classic butter cream icing and a gazillion little gum paste apple blossom flowers in beautiful spring hue's of turquoise, purple, and pink. They each have a little silver dragee in the center of the flower, and are so pretty against the lime green! The bow on top is made out of fondant. Everything on this cake is edible.
I love it!

We're all wishing you a blessed retirement Rosemary!
