I love birthdays.
Especially when they bring beautiful cakes.
The birthday gal loves gardening, especially pink and purple flowers, and so I put together this delicious floral delight.
Fondant details include seed packets, terra cotta flower pots full of pink and purple blooms, and gardening gloves. There was even a little birdhouse. All was accented with buttercream grass and flowers.
Hope it was a wonderful birthday!
This birthday cake was probably one of my favorites to make – it was for a very special little girl.
Two layers (vanilla and chocolate), covered in buttercream and a full size Olivia cut from fondant, all ready for the party.
She is surrounded by polka dots, stripes and she even has the sweetest fondant bows on her ears.
And of course, the first birthday smash cake, in matching colors and accents.
Van’s first birthday fell on a momentous weekend: the Daytona 500.
Not only is that one of the premier Nascar races, but Van was born exactly 8 years after his parents met at that very race.
It’s not surprising that his first birthday theme was the checkered flag.
Of course, the vanilla smash cake matched…
And there were some cupcakes with red papers and black fondant stars atop swirls of buttercream.
We hope this first birthday party was special for Van and his family!
I love themed parties, and I was so excited to make the cake for little Chloe’s very first birthday party.
In a ladybug theme of course.
There was a big cake.
And a smash cake.
And they couldn’t be cuter.
I made this cake for our wonderful vet’s wife’s birthday.
Dr. R told me she really liked sewing and embroidery, and he had already surprised her with a cake in the shape of a sewing machine (how cool is that!).
So I took on the “embroidery” theme.
Which was pretty fun, seeing as how I used to love doing counted cross stitch. Which is kind of the same thing.
I covered a round, chocolate cake with fondant “fabric” (Aida, if you want to be all technical), draping it from a fondant embroidery hoop.
I then piped on the birthday message in a blocky, “sampler”esque font.
And added a few skeins of fondant and royal icing embroidery floss to the side for good measure.
Here’s hoping it was a wonderful birthday!
If you know anything about me, you know that I would only make a Gators cake if it really meant something to someone else.
Because I’m all about the Hurricanes, baby.
But my friend wanted something special for her husband’s birthday party. And he’s a Gators fan. So I created this football field cake with a fondant Gators logo for the event.
Two layers of devil’s food cake with a white chocolate filling, covered in smooth vanilla buttercream.
