Walking in a Pink Wonderland

This cake was created for a little girl that was having a VERY special day, not only was she turning 2 (which is a pretty big thing) but her family was also celebrating her adoption. 
The two tier cake with a tutu layered cupcake was made with a pink winter wonderland theme to match the party decorations.

The Little Monkey Turns One

When my nephew turned one my sister wanted me to make a cake for him that was very simple with a monkey theme.  I used his birthday invitation for the inspiration, I always love coordinating things.

Cake Flavor: Moist Banana (of course!) with Cream Cheese Frosting


This is actually one of my favorite cakes that I've ever made.  I love how simply sophisticated it is.  I love the choice of brown and green against the white fonant.  But my favorite part about this cake actually happened by accident.  When the bride brought me the ribbon to go around the bottom of the tiers they didn't have quite enough and they didn't think that they could get any more.  So, to improvise I used a ribbon color that was similar to the brown, unfortunately all I could find was a thin 5/8" width.  I covered the back 4-5" gap on the back with layers of the thin ribbon, I then tied bows that cascaded down the back of the cake.  I loved the result!  But me being me, I forgot to get a picture of the bows.  So you'll just have to picture it in your head.


This fun western style wedding cake was created (in August) for a girl who grew up on a ranch.  I loved her choice of the two different colors of brown, I admit that I've never tried a tone on tone cake before but I loved it.  The hand crafted belt that wraps around the bottom tier was extremely fun to make.  It reminded me of sitting at scout camp with my mom and brother playing with the leather tooling sets.  I am so lucky my mom decided to take the girls along too instead of dropping us off at a baby sitter.  Oh, the memories!

Perfect Little Princess All In A Row

Every girl dreams of being treated like a princess for a day. And for one magical afternoon my daughter got to have her dream come true. A friend from school held a spectacular party to which she graciously invited my daughter to attend. She felt like she had died and gone to heaven.

On the appointed day and time we headed to one of our local salons (with a pretty little cake in tow)...
