Happy Birthday Narja!

This special cake was for our dear friend Narja who was celebrating a big birthday and wanted to have a special cake to help celebrate. We were invited to a small get together with them and several friends. I had full creative liberty with the cake and I wanted to recreate a present cake. The entire cake, except the bow on top is buttercream!!

Cupcake Bite Bouquet

I was contacted by one of the French teachers at Providence High School again this year to help out with their French Honor Society Inductions. Last year I made individual cupcake bites for the students to have in small boxes. This year we went with the same idea but as cupcake bites in a bouquet.
Here are 50 cupcake bites arranged in two baskets.

Super Mario Brothers!


For a little guy who was turning 4 this weekend, and who happens to be in my son's preschool class, here is his Super Mario Brothers Birthday cake.

(Not pictured are Mario and Luigi that went with the cake)

Toad is made with rice krispie treats.
I also made two dozen of my cupcake bites, but on lollipop sticks that were to resemble Toad himself. They were made with chocolate cake and dipped in the peanut butter and chocolate candy melts. Yum!

Oh Lordy, Guess who is turning 40!

Happy Birthday Michael!
For a friend whose husband was turning 40 this weekend we went with a topsy turvy feel on this cake.

First Communion

My first, First Communion, order. I made two dozen of these cupcakes for a friend whose son was getting his First Communion this weekend at St. Luke's Catholic Church here in Charlotte.

Baby #2....


Well, not really baby #2, but I did another baby shower cake for a close friend who was throwing a shower with her mother in law for her cousin in law!

This cake matched the napkin provided.

Congratulations to this soon to be momma!

Oh Baby!

This weekend was a BUSY weekend, but with a lot of fun cakes.
Here is a sweet baby shower cake that matched the invitation.

Olivia's 5th Birthday


I can not believe it!! Where has the time gone to? One minute she was just a little girl in diapers and just where you left her, and now she's (almost) 5!!

Happy Birthday to my sweet little girl Olivia!

Happy Birthday Olivia!

Jewels for Julia

For a wonderful family and beautiful little girl, I was thrilled to be able to make their littlest first birthday cake. Mom wanted to a have a jewel theme party.
So here is my first attempt at making edible jewels with isomalt! Fun stuff, easy to use, but watch out, it can burn your fingers.
I covered the cake with sanding sugar and edged the cake with a light pink and pale green border to match the invitation colors.

And of course Julia had her first smash cake to eat too!

Happy 1st Birthday Julia!

Let's Paint!

For the same family who was celebrating with the monkey cake, Annalyse, Will's sister was celebrating her birthday at Dish It Out, a local pottery place where you paint your own pottery. This was such a cute idea to do, these are cupcakes, shaped and iced as a paint palette! Cute, huh?
Happy Birthday Annalyse!

Just being a monkey!

Here is a sweet monkey cake I made for a little boy who goes to the same preschool as my two. He was sick a few weeks ago with Mono, poor guy, but he is feeling better so mom and dad are celebrating this weekend instead!
Happy Birthday Will!
