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!

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!

A Shower for Baby F

Saturday, December 12th, 2009

I was so delighted to be invited to our dear friend K’s baby shower. She and her husband D will be expecting Baby F in just a few short months, and we are over the moon for them.

I was also thrilled to be called upon to make her shower cake. Two tiers, one chocolate, one vanilla, studded with butterdream polka dots and a replica of the fishies from Baby F’s super adorable bedding.



Congratulations, again, to two wonderful friends!

Happy Halloween!

Friday, November 6th, 2009

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!

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!
