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!
This weekend, my son’s little friend H celebrated her 3rd birthday.
The theme of the party? Toy Story. Who doesn’t love Toy Story?
Yeah, I don’t know either.
H’s mom wanted little alien cupcakes to tie in with the theme.
I’d be lying if I said these weren’t a blast and a half to make.
Don’t you just want to adopt them? Or eat them?
And seriously, ya’ll? How cute is this Sit-n-Spin for a display stand?
It was the hostess’ idea. It could not have been more perfect.
By the way? These little beauties are chocolate cake with vanilla frosting and fondant and M&M accents.
Claw not included.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
I really wanted to make a super cool, fun cake this year. I decided on vanilla cake with mint and dark chips to lend a peppermint taste, and then settled on a Night Before Christmas theme.
Stockings hung by the chimney with care and all that.
A tall tree is trimmed and standing on a striped skirt on a hardwood floor.
A fondant fire roars in the garland-trimmed fireplace. Cozy.
Delicious! And adorable!
Enjoy the rest of the holiday season!
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.
I made this adorable golf course cake for my father-in-law for Father’s Day.
It’s a vanilla cake, flavored with a hint of Bailey’s Irish Cream and filled with chocolate.
And the rest? Well, I think it speaks for itself. Everything is edible except the flag and pole.
Happy Father’s Day!
What better way to celebrate than with this adorable dessert?
Because everyone loves cake.
Designed with a Miami Hurricanes fan in mind, this cake resembles a mint green dress shirt with white collar and french cuffs, a split U cufflink and orange, green and white flowered tie.
There is also a custom “i <3 dad” label detail inside the collar.
This weekend, I provided a cutting cake and mini cupcakes for a gorgeous wedding at the Garden Club.
The room was absolutely fantastic – deep purple orchids and candles, and gorgeous accents in orange and teal and green, all based around the vivid hues of peacocks.
Over 150 mini cupcakes in vanilla, chocolate and banana rum surround the cake stand.
The lights from the candles in the background.
The tail of the cake topper is absolutely beautiful.
One more close up.
Congratulations to M and her new husband! Wishing you both every happiness!
