Destined to be a Cowboy

A little cowboy is on his way! I had so much fun planning this baby shower cake with Chevis. She is due to have a sweet baby boy on August 23rd... which is my sweet little girl's same exact due date!

Chevis and her hubby love all things rodeo, so it was only fitting to throw a western-themed shower for their new addition. For Chevis, I made a Chocolate Cake topper with Strawberry Filling and Chocolate Buttercream. The little cake was decorated with a Marshmallow fondant belt, belt buckle, and bandana as well as two white chocolate horseshoes. She also requested Orange Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting and Pina Colada Cupcakes with Coconut. Wow!

Basketball Birthday

Okay, I know the Magic aren't doing so well against Boston, but it never hurts to root for the home team!

I made this birthday cake last week for Heidi's brothers on the night of an Orlando Magic game. It was Vanilla Buttermilk Cake with Vanilla Pastry Cream Filling and White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. Heidi claims her brother has "plain Jane" taste, but I think vanilla is just FABULOUS!

Kentucky Derby Shower

The Kentucky Derby is such a classy, upscale event filled with traditions and adorable hats. What a perfect theme for a May Bridal Shower! My best friend Julie is getting married in September and we showered her with gifts at this adorable shower.

For Julie, I made a small "S'more" cake with layers of Graham Cracker Cake and Chocolate Cake filled and frosted with Marshmallow Frosting. I also made Vanilla Buttermilk Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting. Everything was decorated with marshmallow fondant roses and white chocolate horseshoes!

I also made these favors... cellophane bags filled with white chocolate horseshoes and homemade candied pecans. Yum!

Bring on the Bling

I made this adorable bachelorette cake and cupcakes last weekend for a "Bring on the Bling" party. I love all of the fun pink and black party favors... especially the faux engagement rings and festive beads!

The cake was three layers of homemade Vanilla Buttermilk Cake with Cookies 'n Cream filling and White Chocolate frosting. I also made fresh Banana Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting. Yum!

Little Ladybugs

Before I get to the ladybugs, I have to tell you about a frog. The other night when Brian walked through the door in the garage, a big green frog leaped its way into the house! We were both laughing hysterically because everytime he tried to catch it, the frog would leap even farther into the house. Now, I'm definitely not anti-frog, but when you have one bouncing through your kitchen and hiding in the crack between your dishwasher and your cabinet I draw the line. Brian finally caught the little guy in a large tupperware and returned him to his grassy home.

Enough about frogs... this little ladybug cake turned out adorable and I was thrilled to hear that everyone at the party couldn't stop eating it!

The cake is made up of Chocolate Cake layers and Cookies n' Cream Filling with White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. All of the decorations are made by hand with homemade marshmallow fondant. So cute!
