3-tier Sports Birthday Cake

Three family members with November birthdays means a 3-tier cake for one big party!  The customer asked for a sports themed two tier cake to celebrate her son's 3rd, one of her daughter's 12th, and her husband's 35th birthdays.  I thought a three tier cake would be even more fun, so I surprised her.  All three tiers are mocha cake with chocolate cream filling and vanilla-almond buttercream frosting.  Happy Birthday Grayson, Darian, and Joel!!!

Train Cakes

A large order for a special party!  The customer purchased the toppers shown in the mini cupcakes above to do a Thomas-ish train party for her little guy turning 3.  She ordered a Baby Birthday Package along with a dozen mini cupcake favors.  I used the toppers she had to match papers for the banner, which I made.  The large 2-tier cake is Chocolate S'Mores on the lower tier, and Pineapple Coconut on the top tier.  The baby cake is pineapple cake with raspberry filling, and the party favors are chocolate chip mini cupcakes. Everything, of course, frosted with vanilla buttercream.  Thank you, Angie, for such a fun order.  Hope Ty enjoyed his big birthday celebration at the train depot!!

Sugar & Spice Baby Shower Cake

My wonderful friend Victoria is expecting a baby girl this December!  We had a shower for her at my house this weekend with a Sugar & Spice theme.  I made all the paper circle decorations with my Cricut, as well as the banner.  The cake was pretty simple since we had a lot of other sweets on the menu.   It was an apple spice cake with cream cheese filling and vanilla buttercream (same as the cake in my last post).  The shower was so much fun and I can't wait to meet little Brooklyn this December!  :o)

Sunflower Spice Cake

This cake was a donation for The Big Brothers & Big Sisters organization.  They were holding an auction and doing an event called the Cake Dash at Great Wolf Lodge.  I hope it helped raise a little money!  The theme for the evening's events was A Night in Tuscany, so I used warm colors and piped on sunflowers.  It is an Apple Spice Cake with cream cheese filling and vanilla buttercream frosting.
