Zoo Animal Baby Shower

This is a baby shower cake that I did over the weekend for a friend. The bottom tier is vanilla bean with vanilla buttercream frosting. The top tier is red velvet with cream cheese frosting. It was cool being able to use my airbrush machine for color instead of just a glitter shimmer. It adds such a richness to the color that you wouldn't be able to achieve otherwise. The animals are made of fondant and were a lot easier to make then I had expected.

Sparkle Birthday Cake Balls

For my beautiful stepmom's birthday we went to the spa. I thought cake balls would be the perfect treat to celebrate her birthday and have a cake to celebrate. The cake was lemon with cream cheese frosting with the purple sparkle sprinkles. They went perfectly with the day.

Zebra Purse

This was a surprise birthday cake for my two cousins who have late March birthdays. The family got together to celebrate Passover, so my stepmom and I thought it was a perfect time to celebrate their birthdays. They were so surprised! The cake is vanilla and fudge marble with chocolate fudge filling and cream cheese frosting.

Pearled Rose Cupcakes

My aunt, uncle, and three cousins were coming into town to visit from Minnesota. My aunt's one request was to be able to see and taste one of my creations. Living in Minnesota they only get to see my cakes and cupcakes on facebook or this blog. So, I decided I was going to try to make a rose cupcake. This is something I have been wanting to try for so long. I love how it turned out! I also got to test out my new airbrush machine, which was fantastic!! The airbrushed pearl color gives the cupcake a little shimmer that I absolutely love. The cake is lemon with a strawberry preserve buttercream frosting and the airbrushed pearl.

Rockstar Baby Shower Cake & Cupcake Tower

A dear friend of mine is having her second child. For her baby shower I made a guitar cake that that will match the bedding. The name in the stars reads "Tommy" but it is a little hard to see in the photos. The cake and cupcakes are vanilla and fudge marble cake with cream cheese frosting. The cupcake stand was also made by yours truly.

Jungle Baby Shower

I recently got an order for a half sheet cake for a baby shower. The invitations were a perfect match to the bedding for the new baby. The mother of the mother-to-be asked that the cake look like the invitations to match the theme. The cake was vanilla with custard filling and buttercream frosting. All of the accents are done with fondant.

Lil Rebel's First Birthday

For my friends Liz and Luke's sons first birthday, they had a Lil Rebel's theme. There were two kinds of cupcakes and a topper cake just for little Liam. The cupcakes were lemon with raspberry filling and lemon cream cheese frosting; and vanilla with chocolate mousse and buttercream frosting. The cake was chocolate with buttercream frosting. I am super happy with the way everything turned out, and of course, the final presentation on the cupcake tower.
