3D Bear Baby shower cake

This cake was made for a couple expecting a baby girl to be named Ellee. They specifically asked for a pink bear sitting on top of a blanket that looked like the babies bedding... Sugar Plum Fairy from Babies-R-Us, and blocks spelling out the babies name. The bottom cake and the bear were confetti with strawberry buttercream filling and vanilla frosting. The blanket was made entirely from homemade marshmallow fondant, and the blocks sitting on top of the cake were made from Rice Krispy Treats dipped in white chocolate and then covered in fondant. 30 extra blocks with A,B,C's were also made to go along with the cake. Congratulations on your soon to be baby girl!

Halie's Prada purse

This cake was made for a young girl turning 13. I was asked if I can make a cake to look like her favorite purse, so here it is (funny, I am almost 3x her age and I have never had a Prada purse). :) It actually looks pretty dead on. I had a friend who saw the picture ask me where I got the purse and then she noticed that it was actually a cake that I had made. The cake was white with strawberry buttercream filling, and the snake skin look, strap, metal hardware, and zipper were all made from homemade marshmallow fondant. Happy 13th birthday Halie!

Jacob's Super Mario Brothers cake

I had so much fun making this cake. It brought back so many memories of being a kid again and playing Super Mario Brothers... a game that I was never very good at! :( The cake was chocolate with chocolate buttercream/chocolate chip filling, Mario was hand sculpted and all "decorations" were made from homemade marshmallow fondant. Happy 7th birthday Jacob!

Valentine's Day Chocolate Covered Pretzels

I made these Chocolate Covered Pretzels for my daughter's to give to their teachers for Valentine's day. So simple to make, and who doesn't love chocolate covered pretzels? I know I do!! I am a sucker for anything chocolate, but even more I just love the combination of both sweet and salty at the same time.. yummo! Happy Valentine's Day!

All wrapped up...

Malena's Land Before Time cake!

Our daughter Malena has developed a slight obsession with The Land Before Time, and this year wanted it as the theme for her 4th birthday party. It is pretty funny because last year she went from liking Princesses to this year liking Dinosaurs... totally different end of the spectrum. :) The cake was half chocolate with chocolate buttercream/chocolate chip filling, the other half was white cake with passion fruit buttercream filling, and the volcano was chocolate cake. All figures were made from fondant, and might I add that they took FOREVER!! She loves the color pink and wanted it incorporated into the cake in some way, so I made the dinosaurs some party cats and a present. Happy Birthday Malena!

Malena's 4th Birthday!

I made this cake for my daughter Malena's 4th birthday! She is a real girly girl and loves the color pink and also brighter toned colors, so that is the direction that I went. We are having her birthday party next week, so i'll be making another cake for that as well. The birthday girl requested strawberry cake with strawberry buttercream/chocolate chip filling. All flowers and the 4 on top were made from homemade marshmallow fondant. Happy 4th birthday Malena!

Under the sea cupcakes!

These cupcakes were made to celebrate a little boy's first birthday that was being held at our local aquarium. 5 total "special" cupcakes were made... one for the birthday boy, and 4 other's for 4 little boys whose birthday's are coming up. There were 3 boys turning 1, one turning 4, and another turning 5. I also made simple cupcakes with just blue frosting and white sprinkles for all the guests. All cupcakes were chocolate with vanilla buttercream frosting, and sea animals and numbers were all made from homamade marshmallow fondant. Happy birthday Isaiah and to the other 4 boys (whose names I don't have)!
