Mix Match

Loved this cake! I have to admit, I was a little nervous about all the mixing and matching. (If you know anything about me, you know I'm not much of a mixer and matcher!!) But after all was said and done, I loved all the colors and designs that were incorporated into the theme of this cake. The party was a fun mix match theme with an explosion of colors throughout the house! I have to say this was on top of my list of cakes that were the most fun to make!!

Minnie Mouse

Another first birthday! It seems like everyone is turning one these days! :) I was so excited to do a Minnie Mouse cake. Her character is so girly, but very simple too. Thirty-one bows and sixty-two Minnie ears later...


Summer Fun

This was my first time using the brown sugar as sand-- I loved the way it looked! I love cakes like this. The colors and cute designs are always fun to work with. Very summery!


Sunflower Cupcakes

My mom loves sunflowers! I made sunflower cupcakes with Oreos for her last year. This time, I put little pictures on the sunflowers. Each member of the family was represented, so everyone was excited to get their designated sunflower cupcake to eat. My mom enjoyed passing out the cupcakes as she looked at all the fun photos of her with her loved ones.

My nephew is a soccer stud!! Naturally, we decided a soccer cake would be appropriate (he had his birthday party at an indoor soccer place and played soccer with all of his friends). This was my first time making a ball out of cake-- one thing I learned, at least for soccer balls, is the importance of making precise measurements!


Justin Bieber

For those of you that have got the Bieber Fever!

Baby Carnival Cake

Another carnival cake! This one was made personally for baby Brooklyn to dive into at her first birthday! People always ask me if it kills me to watch my cakes being cut into and it doesn't. In this case, I was excited to make a cake for the purpose of being destroyed. I know it brings much joy to the little ones to devour sweet treats!

I also made little carnival cupcakes to go with Brooklyn's first birthday cake.
