Ty's First Birthday Cake



My sweet nephew, Ty, turned one a couple weeks ago.  I made a small three-tier cake, which is a standard sized two tier with a mini cake on top.  The mini cake was for Ty to enjoy by himself!  I did a chocolate cake with chocolate cream frosting for the bottom tier.  The top two tiers were carrot cake with cream cheese filling.  The whole cake was frosted and decorated with my standard vanilla-almond buttercream.  I made a banner for the party as well.  Happy 1st Birthday, Ty-Ty!!

Black & White Beauty Queen Cake

This was a celebration cake for a former Mrs. Washington as she celebrated her 20th year as director for the Mrs. Washington Pageant.  She requested something elegant, black & white, with a few touches of red and some red roses.  I had fun with the design and was please how it turned out.  It was a red velvet cake with cream cheese filling and buttercream frosting.  Fresh red roses topped it off.  Congratulations on all your success, Pam!

Candy Corn Cake

I made this cake earlier in the month as a donation for an auction item at Evergreen Christian.  Since I waited too long to do this post, I can hardly remember what flavor it was!  I'm pretty sure it was a butter pecan cake with vanilla cream filling and buttercream frosting.  I hope it helped raise a little money for the school. :o)

Zebra Print Cake for a 21st Birthday

This is a strawberry cake with cream cheese filling.  The topper was a little something extra for the birthday girl - a strawberry jell-o shot!  I used a pre-printed Wilton Sugar Sheet for the zebra stripe pattern.  The top of the cake has sugar crystals to add a little sparkle.
Happy Birthday, Tawny and thanks for your order!

Cars and Trucks 1st Birthday Cake

Henry turned one last week and his mama requested a 1st birthday cake with cars and trucks.  Nothing specific, so this was what I came up with.  I was pleased with the colors, as I'm not a huge fan of really bright primary colors for cakes.  I like the red with the pastels to tone it down.  This was a vanilla confetti cake with vanilla cream filling.  Happy Birthday, Sweet Little Henry!

Golf Themed Cupcakes

Golf cupcakes for a couples wedding shower.  I made one dozen chocolate cupcakes with the grass buttercream frosting, and one dozen (not pictured) yellow cupcakes with maple butter frosting and dusting of brown sugar on top.  Ooooh those were good!  They were intended to look like a sand trap.  There were golf ball toppers for all the cupcakes and the party hostess also thought she would stick a golf tee into some of the cupcakes.  Sorry I don't have pictures of the whole display - I bet it was very cute.

Birthday Cake for Grandpa

The request was simply for a birthday cake to celebrate a Grandfather's 75th birthday.  No theme - just a party cake.  This is a vanilla cake with pistachio cream filling and buttercream frosting.  Candles were to be placed  on top at the party.  Thanks for another order, Anne!!

Rustic 4-Tier Wedding Cake

The first two pictures were onsite at the wedding, this last one was what it looked like as I delivered it to the florist.  The flowers she added were so beautiful.  There was a slight mishap with delivery so the front of the cake was actually turned into the back of the cake and the heart and initials were "carved" into the new front side and there were a few more flowers than originally planned.  But everything worked out and it looked beautiful at the wedding. The 12 inch round bottom tier was vanilla cake with raspberry filling.  The 10 inch tier above that was chocolate cake with vanilla cream filling, above that is an 8 inch tier that was carrot cake with cream cheese filling.  The top tier is a pumpkin spice cake with apple cinnamon cream cheese filling.  All was frosted with off-white buttercream.  Lots of flavors for the guests to choose from!  Nicole & Patrick - thank you for your order and congratulations on your beautiful day!  Becky - thank you for saving the cake. :o)

Flower Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes for my sister-in-law's baby shower this weekend.  We had a lot of flowers for the decor and so I went with that idea for the dessert.  I felt that cupcakes were more fitting for this party than a large cake.  They are pink lemonade cupcakes with buttercream frosting.  I did three designs: hydrangea, rose, and marigold.

50th Birthday Brownie Cake

This is a two-layer brownie cake filled and frosted with chocolate buttercream.  The customer requested some green leaves and the birthday message on the cake.  Thanks for the order, Pam!

Wedding Cake with a Tree

The bride requested a three tier white wedding cake with a tree up the center.  She had shared a picture of what she wanted and I went off of that.  The bottom tier is chocolate cake with mint buttercream filling, the middle and top tiers are vanilla cake with raspberry filling.  The frosting is all buttercream, the brown details are chocolate and the green details are mint.
She also ordered a lot of cupcakes for her special day.  She had one batch of orange cupcakes with vanilla buttercream, one batch of lemon cupcakes with raspberry buttercream, and one batch of pineapple cupcakes with coconut buttercream.

Congratulations, Christa!  I hope you enjoyed all your treats.  Thank you for the order!

Kermit the Frog Cake

Pink and Green 2-Tier Baby Shower Cake

This is a two-tier baby shower cake with a banner and topper to match.  The banner design and topper were purchased by the customer in a digital format.  I offered to print and cut out the pieces with my cricut machine - saving her a lot of cutting time with scissors.  The cake is pink lemonade with vanilla cream filling and buttercream frosting.

Minnie Mouse Cake

Another birthday cake for little Presley!  This year was a Minnie Mouse theme.  This was a yellow cake with chocolate cream filling and buttercream frosting, and a topper to match.  Happy 2nd Birthday, sweet girl!

Black and White Wedding Cake "Biker Elegance"

This was a very fun, non-traditional wedding cake order.  The bride had an image of a cake she liked and asked if I could produce something similar.  She said the wedding would have kind of a "biker-elegance" feel. :o)  She requested the skull and crossbones, studded ribbon, and rhinestones incorporated into the cake design and fresh bright pink roses to finish it off.  She was very pleased with the cake!  The bottom and top tiers were white cake with vanilla cream filling, and the middle tier was white cake with coconut cream filling.  All was frosted with my buttercream frosting.

Flower Cupcakes

These aren't the greatest pictures - sorry.  Photo shoots late at night re not as good as those in natural daylight.  These flower cupcakes are to be served at a bridal shower with a chic garden party feel.  All the cupcakes are pink lemonade decorated with vanilla buttercream.

Lightning McQueen / Cars Cake

A chocolate baby cake with vanilla filling for a little guy who loves Lightning McQueen from the movie Cars.  Mom plans on topping this cake with a fun Cars candle she found at Party City.  Happy Birthday, Cohen!!

Two Tier Cake with a Cherry on Top!

A few cherries on top, actually!  Beautiful little baby, Ella Cherry, is turning one this weekend.  The bottom tier of this cake is cherry chip with vanilla cream filling, and the top tier was vanilla confetti cake with vanilla cream filling.  The cherries were freshly picked from my friends cherry tree, and the perfect shade of red for this cake with the simple red gingham ribbon around the base of each tier.  Happy Birthday, Sweet Ella!  Can't wait to see pictures!
