Baby Boy 1st Birthday Cake

I made this cake for a friend last February and just came across the pictures she sent me. Oops! I had forgotten to take pictures before I sent it off to the party! I made it to match the blue polk-a-dot party decorations and the customer made her own toppers inspired by some I had done on a different (but similar) cake.

Peanut M&M Cake

This birthday girl loves peanut M&Ms, so her daughter wanted to surprise her with a little M&M cake. It is chocolate cake filled with peanut butter frosting, frosted with vanilla buttercream. Fun to do and pretty simple. I carved the oval cake just slightly to slope the edges down. Happy Birthday Tammy! Enjoy.

Polk-A-Dot Baby (Boy) Shower Cake

This two-tier cake is for Baby Boy Cooper's shower. The party hostess used polk-a-dots and Mini Cooper cars as the theme. The bottom tier is french vanilla cake with raspberry filling, the top tier is dark chocolate cake with mocha filling. All is frosted with vanilla buttercream.

Back to School Cake

Another fun cake! This cake was ordered for a customer's coworker who was leaving her current job to become a kindergarten teacher. They had a little good-bye party for her today. It is a mocha cake with mocha filling, all frosted with vanilla buttercream. The cupcake apple on top was dark chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream and red sugar sprinkles, a piece of hazelnut milk chocolate as the stem, and a mint gumdrop as the leaf.

Fishing Themed Groom's Cake

This cake will be a surprise from a bride to her groom on their wedding day! He loves fishing and she wanted to do something to recognize that on their special day. It is a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and some buttercream frosting. The bride chose the fishing couple topper and I purchased it from Amazon. Congratulations Jessica and thanks for your order!

Fish Cake

Special request for a special birthday boy turning six - a fish cake! I used a molded pan in the shape of a fish and then made a few modifications after it was out of the oven. It is strawberry cake (because I wanted it to look like a salmon, and then be pink when cut into...) with vanilla buttercream. If I had a fish cake request again.... I would forgo the molded pan and just carve it myself. I think a side view would have looked better, rather than the 3-d top view. But it turned out pretty good and I think it will be a fun cake for a birthday celebration. Happy Birthday, Tate!!
