Jack Skellington Cake in buttercream

This birthday cake is a chocolate cake filled with oreo crumbs and vanilla buttercream. The cake's theme was centered around the movie "The Nightmare Before Christmas".  The character on the front is Jack Skellington. The quotes around the sides of the cake say "What's this? What's this?" and "I can't believe my eyes!" Both are memorable quotes from the movie and add to the overall effect of the cake. The X's around the top look similar to stitching seen in the movie. All of the cake decorations are done in buttercream.

Whimsical Birthday Cake

This is a chocolate cake filled and covered in vanilla buttercream. This birthday cake is special because of the words. Sometimes it's all about making it personal. It read " Mama & Granny Happy Birthday! I love you! Can we have "more cake" please?". It was very sweet and fun and the whimsical swirls on the cake just added to the theme. I hope they had a great birthday.

Ever wonder what the baker is doing when she's not baking??

Have you ever wondered what a baker does when she's not baking?? Sometimes I still end up baking, but other times I'm cooking, painting, venting, parenting, planning, crafting and blogging. For a peak into the personal life of a baker click here ....and maybe you'll see me talking about creating your cake or maybe I'll spill a couple of my baking secrets. Or I might just share a favorite wine or a favorite hang out place. It's not predictable, it's just my life.

Jet Cake

 This cake was made for a customer's boyfriend who flies jets. It was very important that this airplane looked like a jet. I hope he enjoys his cake and really hope he likes his own little jet! The cake is our yummy vanilla cake with a creamy vanilla buttercream filling. The outside of this cake is decorated with blue and white vanilla buttercream. The jet is made out of fondant and placed ontop to give the impression that the jet is flying through the clouds.

Happy Birthday Lamar!
