Kelly's 21st Birthday

I made this cake for my friend's daughter who turned 21. She just wanted a simple cake for their family celebration at home. Kelly just wanted a yellow cake with chocolate buttercream, so that's what she got! I just got a little fancy with the piping - 21 is a special birthday, so it needed to be fun!

Camouflage Cake

I made this cake for a man who loves hunting. This was a red velvet cake with cream cheese filling, and buttercream icing on the outside. The deer silhouette is a hand cut sugar sheet. This has now become one of my favorite cakes I've done!

Snow White Cake - November 2012

Elynn's Apple Smash Cake!

This cake was so fun to do! I made this cake for sweet little Elynn's First Birthday party. Her momma wanted to have this specific cake made to be just like the one she had for her 8th birthday as a little girl. It was the only cake she remembered from her childhood, and she wanted her baby girl to have the same wonderful Snow White-themed birthday experience that she did. She also requested an apple-shaped smash cake for Elynn. So after some trial and error, I came up with the one pictured above. It's a strawberry cake with red colored buttercream, and a tootsie roll stem. It turned out super cute! 

Avengers Cake - October 2012

 Judah's Avengers Birthday Cake

Judah turned 3! He l.o.v.e.s. the Avengers (his favorite is Captain America!) I wanted to make him an awesome cake for his party. His momma had such great ideas for his party, and this cake was the 'cherry on top!' I used gum paste & fondant for all of the decorations. The cake was a yummy chocolate cake with buttercream icing and blue and white striped buttercream for the filling between layers. The kids loved picking their favorite character off the top of the cake & taking a bite!

September 2012 - D&G groom's cake

D&G Groom's cake  9.14.12
 This has to be my favorite cake I've made so far for a few reasons. 
1. It was very challenging. I hand cut each piece of the crest out of sugar sheets, and painted edible glitter on each one. I also hand cut out all of the stripes out of sugar sheets & sprayed them with edible gold mist. Not to mention the 6 layers of cake...
2. Derrick has been one of my best friends for years. When he asked me to make this groom's cake for him, I was honored. I couldn't imagine giving him any less than perfection. I put a lot of time and love into this cake, and I loved every second of it.
3. The reaction I got from the grooms was priceless. I'll never forget their faces! It still makes me tear up thinking of how happy this cake made them.

 I designed the cake to match the crest they had designed for their wedding invitations. I also used gold and white to stay with the color theme of the wedding.

 The happy couple!

 It was a huge surprise to them that I made the cake into a rainbow! They were so shocked - they LOVED it! 

Congratulations to a couple of the most wonderful people I know!
