Star Spangled Cake

Sunday, July 4th, 2010

A patriotic dessert for a special celebration.

This cake was carved in the shape of the United States out of two layers of vanilla cake, one red and one blue. It was frosted in vanilla buttercream and decorated with patriotic slogans.

Chocolate cupcakes designed to complement the cake.

Hole in One for Father’s Day.

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!

BBQ Beach Bash Cake

Monday, May 31st, 2010

We celebrated Memorial Day with some great friends, and I was in charge of dessert.

My favorite thing to be in charge of, really.

I decided to play around with a beach theme, and created a delicious peach brandy cake with vanilla custard and fresh blueberry filling.

And then the fun began. Check out these sweet teddy grahams sunbathers and swimmers.

We have some itty bitty divers in itty bitty wetsuits…

Just splashing around…

And don’t forget Speedo Bear. He’s my favorite.

A yummy way to celebrate.

And probably one of my favorites to make.

For your sweetheart.

A delicious dark chocolate cake in the shape of a candy box. Everything is edible (except the cupcake papers)

Complete with mini-cupcakes made to look like truffles & chocolates.

Roses not included.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Halloween!

Around the holidays, I always fall a little behind in my uploading.

However, I wanted to share these adorable Halloween cupcakes. Orange colored chocolate chip cake frosted like jack-o-lanterns, or with vanilla and chocolate, edged in spooky non-pareils.


Check out the cute pumpkin cupcake papers. The perfect touch. These were a huge hit!
