Girly Fashionista Cake

Customer request for a girly-fashionista type cake meaning makeup, jewelry, leopard print, pinks and purples.  This is what I created!  The flavor is my Neapolitan combination: strawberry cake, chocolate cream filling, and vanilla buttercream frosting.  This one is also covered in sugar crystals on the top - every girly cake needs some sparkle!  Happy birthday, Bella!

Baby Shower Cake for Stephanie

I had a request for an elegant baby shower cake with white, peaches and pinks.  So this is what I came up with - the ruffles did make it a little more "cutesy" than I intended, but I still think it's very pretty.  The bottom tier is pink lemonade cake with vanilla cream filling, the top tier is orange creamsicle.  All is frosted with vanilla buttercream.  Congratulations, Stephanie!  I can't wait to meet baby Vivienne!

Baptism Cake for Ty

My nephew, Ty, was baptized on Sunday so I made this cake for the celebration.  It was an orange creamsicle cake with buttercream frosting.

Underwater / Snorkeling Baby Shower Cake

Invitations purchased from   Pink Pickle Studios

Here's a cute little theme for a baby shower!  The customer shared the image of the invitation with me and I went from there.  The bottom tier of this under-the-sea cake is coconut cake with coconut cream filling and the top tier is orange creamsicle (orange cake with vanilla cream filling).  All frosted with vanilla buttercream and a few touches of coconut buttercream.  The seashells are vanilla candy melts and I also made the topper to match.  I thought this theme could also be so cute for a 1st birthday.

Baseball Birthday Cake

Cinco de Mayo Birthday Cake

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

This fun cake is for a Cinco de Mayo 21st birthday celebration.  The cake is chocolate with coconut cream filling and coconut buttercream.  The limes on top are filled with tequila-lime Jell-O shots.  I also made the topper.  I was excited to have artistic freedom on this one as I have been wanting to do some form of a ruffle cake.  All these colorful ruffles remind me of a beautiful mexican dress and also kind of make me think of all the paper ruffles on a pinata.  Happy Birthday, Janice!  Have fun tonight!
