Digger - Dumper Cake #2

I made a cake like this for my son's birthday a year ago and had a customer request one for her own little boy.  Crushed chocolate Oreo cookies and chocolate rocks help set the scene!  Very simple to do, and she added her own digger toys.

Beautiful Birthday Cake for a Golfer

My lovely friend, Julia, threw a surprise birthday party for her mother who loves to golf.  She asked that I create something beautiful, but pull in a golf theme as well.  I decided to use a beautiful pastel green and blue for the perfectly smooth buttercream finish and fresh hydrangeas from my garden.  A little silver ribbon added some sparkle, and the golf theme literally topped it off.  This was a vanilla cake with pistachio cream filling - and I received many compliments how beautiful and delicious it was!!

Sully - Monsters U Cake

Flash on or off?
I can't ever decide...

This fun Monsters, Inc. Sully cake was for a special little guy's 8th birthday celebration.  Sully is his favorite character from the new Monsters U movie. Thanks for another order, Heather!

This vanilla cake with chocolate cream filling and chocolate frosting was for a Seattle Sounders fan.  As most of you know - this is all hand piped and decorated with buttercream. Another order from my best customer (I think it was her 5th cake order in two months)! Thanks, Anne!

Bubbles and Chocolate Cake

Saffron chose a vanilla cake with chocolate frosting for her birthday this year - and she wanted bubbles on it...  Here it is!  I shaded each white circle with turquoise, lavender, and pink to mimic the swirls we see in bubbles.  The turned out very pretty and unfortunately my battery was dead in my nice camera!  So I snapped a few photos with my phone before sending it off to be eaten! The topper was covered in a clear glossy paint to make it shiny - hard to photograph that with my phone as well.

Thanks for the order, Ms. Stephanie!!

4th of July Cupcakes

These cute little cuppies doubled as a 4th of July dessert and for little Vivienne's 1st birthday celebration at her grandpa's house.  2 dozen were displayed on a cute little white stand.  I believe this was my orange creamsicle combination, orange confetti cake and vanilla buttercream.  Yum!
