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.
