Tinkerbell Cake

This cake was a very special cake for me to make. It was my daughter's 2nd birthday cake. She just adores Tinkerbell so I knew that her cake would be all about Tinkerbell. I wanted it to not only be cute but also incorperate some of the enchantment of the forest where Tinkerbell lives. I made it with my double vanilla cake and a whipped chocolate buttercream. It's covered in fondant. The tree trunk and green forest floor are air brushed with edible coloring. All the extra details are made with fondant. Tinkerbell is a candle but everything else on the cake can be eaten. A magical cake for a magical day.

Floral Cake

This is a carrot cake with a cream cheese filling and is covered in fondant. The flowers surrounding the cake are made out of colored fondant. I stuck to the floral theme but wanted it to be both fun and elegant. I think birthday's should always be fun and I think a cake should represent that. But I didn't want this cake to be only fun. I wanted to incorporate the flowers in an elegant and modern way since this cake was for a customer's mother. I think all mothers deserve a little elegance. I had a lot of fun making this cake and I hope Linda has a wonderful birthday!

Oreo Cupcakes

These are my oreo cupcakes. It's a moist, delicious cupcake with crushed up oreos in the batter to give it that authentic oreo taste. Then I top it off with a vanilla and whipped chocolate buttercream swirl sprinkled with crushed up oreos. It's a heavenly treat! For oreo lovers this cupcake is a must have!

Cupcake Love

These are chocolate cupcakes for a customer who needed a last minute order. Cupcakes are the perfect solution for last minute orders since they are relatively quick to assemble. Half of these cupcakes are frosted with the double vanilla buttercream and the other half are topped with the espresso buttercream.

Patriotic Cupcakes

A customer of mine was having an all american themed party and wanted some cupcakes to serve. She was very trusting and basically gave me free range to do what I thought would look cute. I thought, what's more American than red, white and blue with stars? I think they turned out really cute. 1/2 of the cupcakes were chocolate and 1/2 were double vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream. The star details are made out of fondant. So cute!

Golf Cake #2

This golf cake is a vanilla cake with a whipped chocolate buttercream filling. It was ordered for a birthday party for a professional golfer. There are a lot of fondant details in this cake and I think it's just perfect! I really like the raised plateau for the hole and the lower sand trap. Everything (except the flag pole and ribbon at base) on the cake is edible. I hope Gary has a wonderful birthday!

Little Miss Ellie Fant

This is a custom fondant sculpture for a 1 year old's birthday party. My customers named her Miss Ellie Fant. How cute is that! She was very well behaved while staying with me and didn't keep any one up at night.
