Elmo Birthday Cake

This adorable Sesame Street - inspired cake was for Bailey's 2nd birthday party. The cake was made up of three layers of Vanilla Buttermilk Cake with Raspberry filling and White Chocolate Buttercream. The decorations, including Elmo, are made from fondant.

Bailey is one of the most adorable little girls and I am so happy that her mommy trusted me with her special birthday cake!

Wedding Cupcake Tower

Wedding cupcakes are such a fun, modern twist on a classic wedding cake. I am so happy with the way Lauren & Michael's cupcakes turned out.

They chose simple flavors, such as Chocolate Cupcakes with White Chocolate Buttercream, Vanilla Buttermilk Cupcakes with Chocolate Fudge Frosting, and Strawberry-Filled Vanilla Cupcakes with White Chocolate Buttercream. For the cake topper (which is now in their freezer waiting on their one-year anniversary), they chose Chocolate Cake with Cookies n' Cream filling.

The bride asked for this "branch" detail, which I think turned out so beautiful. The morning of the wedding, I cut the branch and stripped all of it's leaves. I used dark brown spraypaint to acheive the color of the wooden cupcake stand and let it dry for a few hours. I used a padded art tape to adhere the branch to the cupcake stand. LOVE it!
Lauren found this adorable "Love" cake topper on etsy.

Lauren surpirsed Michael with a groom's cake... she asked for his favorite Cookies n' Cream Filling and i decorated it with a nautical theme. Yum!

I just love my solid-wood, 7-tier cupcake display stand... and I can't wait to use it for more wedding cupcake orders! Also, I want to thank Ashley McCormick for sending me these AMAZING cake photos. Be sure to check out her photography blog!
