Babies & Brides

I enjoy making cakes for those special moments in life... like expecting a baby or getting married. Here are two recent cakes that I made for special celebrations...

The first was a baby shower cake for a mom expecting a little girl. It is made up of lemon cake with Lemonade Buttercream Filling and the entire cake is covered in homemade marshmallow fondant.

The next cake was ordered for a Bachelorette weekend at the beach for a bride-to-be. It was Fresh Strawberry Cake with Cream Cheese Filling and White Chocolate Buttercream.

Orange & Blue!

Football season is finally here! It's one of my favorite times of the year... friends getting together, chips & salsa, my crazy husband yelling at the TV... what's not to love!?

For Grady's 7th birthday, he requested a Florida Gator cake. Although we are seminole fans in my household, I agreed to make this special cake for him!

The cake is made up of Vanilla Buttermilk Cake and Cookies 'n Cream filling with White Chocolate Buttercream. The mini footballs are homemade marshmallow fondant. Even though this cake is orange and blue, I love the way it turned out!

Happy Birthday to You!

I am a big fan of birthdays... they deserve extra attention and celebration no matter how young or old you are. Best of all, a birthday is the PERFECT excuse to eat cake! Here are a few of my recent birthday cakes...

For Chevis, I made an Orange Cake with Orange-Cream Cheese Filling and White Chocolate frosting. She called me the next day and explained that her husband, who doesn't usually like any cake at all LOVED this cake! I was so glad I could make the birthday girl (and her hubby) happy :)

Here is an "Over the Hill" birthday cake that I think turned out so cute! It is made up of Classic Chocolate Cake with Raspberry FIlling and White Chocolate Frosting. I topped the cake with fresh raspberries to give a little clue as to what was inside. Along with the cake, I made Southern Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. I topped each cupcake with a chocolate swirl.

X-Games Cupcakes

It's official... Kalen had the coolest 9-year-old birthday party EVER! The party theme was X-Games and his mom and dad planned so many fun activites for everyone. There was a water balloon fight, kickball game (the adults won this one), and a battle of "Capture the Flag." The crazy heat outside didn't stop anyone from having a great time!
For Kalen, I made an X-Games cupcake tower themed with the FOX racing logo, Hurley skateboards, and Vans skateboards. The flavors were Classic Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting and Orange Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. Each cupcake was topped with a white chocolate skateboard! So cool!
