Gators by request

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

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.


Happy birthday!

Hole in One for Father’s Day.

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

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.

The cake itself is chocolate-coconut flavored and filled with shredded coconut and vanilla buttercream for a Mounds bar effect. Mmmm.

There is also a custom “i <3 dad” label detail inside the collar.

Happy Father’s Day!

A Beautiful Wedding

Monday, June 7th, 2010

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!

A Birthday Carnival

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

Part of the fun of baking is getting to make the cakes for family birthdays.

It’s even more exciting when it’s for our son.

A’s second birthday was a carnival theme, complete with balloons, games and mini corn dogs.

I made a little 6″ carnival tent cake.

And lots and lots of cute vanilla and chocolate cupcakes to share.

Oh, and don’t forget a bunch of “2″ frosted cookies. My personal favorite!

Happy birthday to our little man! He had a wonderful day!

Happy First Birthday to C!

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

I really love making sweets for friends, and so I was more than delighted that B & M asked me to create a smash cake for their son’s first birthday party.

They had a nautical theme, and B requested the colors of light blue and red, with stripes. I found some inspiration pictures and put together this 8″ round of chocolate and vanilla layers with buttercream and fondant.


On display at the party, complete with anchor, another special request.


C, the birthday boy, loved it! Happy first birthday, buddy!

Jack’s 1st Birthday!

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

Happy birthday, Jack!

Jack’s Mommy and Daddy wanted  a very special Surf Monkey birthday party for his special day. They asked me to do a surfboard vanilla cake in yellow and blue for Jack’s smash cake and I was happy to oblige.


It made a huge splash with Jack. He was more than happy to dig right in. :)


Mom & Dad also ordered some banana rum cupcakes with buttercream frosting to celebrate the actual birthday (tomorrow). I jazzed them up with yellow frosting swirls and a blue fondant dot, in keeping with the party theme.


We hope Jack had a fantastic day!
