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!

Rustic Lavender Baby Shower Cake & Banner


This was a fun order - the inspiration came from the printables in the bottom image.  The customer purchased these digitally through Etsy.  I printed the files and cut them and strung them with twine for a bit of a rustic touch.  The bottom tier of this cake is chocolate cake with vanilla cream filling and frosted with buttercream.  The top tier is spice cake with cream cheese filling and frosted with cream cheese frosting.

15th Birthday Cake for Dylan

 Another birthday cake and banner by Party Cakes!  Dylan requested strawberry cake this year - I filled it with vanilla cream and frosted with vanilla buttercream.  The banner was made for last year's party and we used it again for this one.  Happy 15th Birthday, Dylan!

Star Wars Cake & Cupcake Display

Camden LOVES Star Wars and was soooo excited for this birthday display I created for his 7th birthday!  It is a double chocolate baby cake topping the same flavor cupcakes, all frosted and decorated with vanilla buttercream.  His mom purchased all the toy toppers and I created the display stand to coordinate.

Pink Zebra Mini Two-Tier Cake

I had another customer request the pink and zebra print cake, but this time with the addition of a mini-cake for baby's 1st birthday.  This is an 8-inch round strawberry cake with cream cheese filling, topped with a 4 inch mini cake in the same flavor.  All frosted with my vanilla-almond buttercream.  I also made the topper.  Happy Birthday, little Stella!  Hope you enjoyed your cake. :o)

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!!
