Happy Birthday Tori!!

Happy 8th Birthday Tori!!  Thank you for having us at your birthday party, we had a blast!  She had her party at the Cleveland Zoo and it was such a nice party.  The cake was devils food, dark chocolate ganache filling, covered in fondant, fondant decorations and bow,  and gumpaste flowers, the zebra was made out of fondant.


Happy Birthday Tori!!

Just a simple last minute cake!

A very dear friend, you might as well say, brother (I consider him my brother), his mother passed away after a short illness and I wanted him to have a cake for the funeral reception.  It was last minute, devils food with dark chocolate ganache /buttercream filling, iced in buttercream.  I had asked him what her favorite colors were and he said tan and brown,  So a tan cake, with white roses is what I did.
I had no problems doing the cake, the problems came after.  When I was putting the cake in the box, my finger slipped and I put a big gash in the side of the cake.  I patched it up, and then closed the box.  My husband came home and wanted to see it, so I opened the box and found out I had smashed the roses when closing the box.  UGH!  Well at least I got a picture before the all the mishaps :P

There's a new "Cake Artist" in town!!

My dad is an artist and my son paints with my dad at his house.  Since it was his birthday, I decided to have him "paint" his grandpa's birthday cake.  He was so excited, I couldn't get the icing in the bags fast enough.  This is what he did and I of course helped with the fondant accents.





Happy Birthday Grandpa!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!

Happy Birthday to me, happy birthday to me!!  I had to do it, had to make my birthday cake.  My husband offered to buy me one but I had fun making this one.  I've been wanting to try the zebra print and had a white bow I made a while back stashed away so this is what I came up with.

I was tired of making chocolate cakes (never thought I would hear myself say that), so I made wedding white with buttercream filling, and the outside is all fondant and of course you have to give it some luster by additng pearl dust!  I LOVE IT!!

It's a Boy!!

A last minute cake a friend of mine needed so I whipped this up in one night, luckily I had a cake tucked away in the freezer.  She couldn't make the baby shower but was meeting the mom-to-be for dinner and wanted to bring dessert.  She said to do whatever, just have "its a boy" on it.  So being last minute, this is what I came up with.  She loved it!!

Devils food chocolate cake, buttercream icing and fondant accents.

WWE Wrestling Fans!!!

My neighbor Lisa asked me if I would do a wrestling cake for her boyfriend Doug.  Well of course I can't resist a challenge.............I know nothing about the WWE.  I had to do my homework and search the internet for some ideas and I think I got it!  I even made little figures that are to represent Doug & Lisa.  Take a look!




This is double fudge chocolate cake, buttercream icing, fondant accents and fondant/gumpaste figures and I tried to use lace licorice for the ropes but it didn't work out so I used ribbon. 
Happy Birthday Doug!!!  Thank you both for having me make your cake, it was a lot of fun!!
