Harry Potter!


This is going to go up with one of my all time FAVORITE cakes. I didn't mind nor did I count the hours spent making the invidual pieces, I was THRILLED that I was asked to make a Harry Potter theme birthday cake.

For all those Harry Potter fans you know ALL about the different elements to this cake.

The Quidditch ball with its wings,

The sorting hat for the fellow students at Hogwarts.

Harry's iconic red and yellow scarf, and his signature glasses.

What special is the wand, not just any wand,

it belongs to Dumbledore.

This birthday boy LOVES Dumbledore and requested his wand to be on his cake!

Happy Birthday Cody!



A little late for Valentines...but this sweet cake was made for a friend who was just "craving" one of my cakes! I'm glad I was able to help her out.

A Froggy theme First Birthday!


Happy Birthday to our close friends and their son Mikey!

What a sweet, and happy baby!!

The frogs head is actually a GIANT cookie covered in buttercream

left over cookie dough so I quickly put together some cookies for everyone to enjoy

Smash cake for Mikey!

I based his cakes on theme of his birthday invitations

Happy Birthday Big Boy!

Take Me Out to the Ballgame!


Another dozen cookies, these were for favors for a young boys birthday last week.

He was having a baseball theme party.

Happy Birthday!

Valentine Cookies!


Last week was Valentines, and what better way to celebrate but with sweet cookies. These were actually for a great cause. I sent these dozen cookies to a young boy through Cookies Smiles, a joint program with the group Icing Smiles - which provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by critical illness of a child.

Cookies Smiles is just a smaller group that reaches out to families each month with a dozen sweet smiles!



My little guy has yet to discover what these neat toys are yet, but this is my second Beyblade cake. My apologies for the blurry picture. But this is my version of what a Beyblade is on a cake for a young boy who was celebrating his birthday with just his family last week.

Dinosaur Train


What little boy doesn't love trains and dinosaurs?

PBS took both ideas and made an incredible cartoon called Dinosaur Train! This cake was for a sweet little boy who was turning three and LOVES the show.

The story is about dinosaurs who explore all the differnt eras of the dinosaur period as they travel on a train through a time tunnel to visit with different dinosaurs and learn along the way. Great show!

What I love (and I'm so proud of) is this is ALL buttercream, hand drawn and piped on!

Happy Birthday Caden!

Pink and Black


For a friend who was was traveling to celebrate her sisters 30th birthday this weekend, this cute (and small) cake was spun off of ideas of France and the Eiffel Tower and the birthday girls favorite color cominbation, pink and black. No Eiffel Tower, but very simple and cute too!

All buttercream, except for the bottom trim, bow on top

and the letter "B" plaque in the middle.

Happy Birthday!

Congratulations to Magen and Jason!


Despite the rain and cold temperature that this past Saturday brought, these two young people were not going to let that stop their fabulous February wedding!

A simple, elegant, but modern feel to their wedding cake, a three tier square cake with simple red flowers and a black fondant band around each tier.

Congratulations to Magen and Jason!

And, the bride asked me to create a special surprise grooms cake, this is the US Soccer Crest.

I created the cake to look like her Police Badge.

Tea Party for Two!


For a little girl who was turning 2 this weekend. Her mom wanted to recreate the theme of her party and decor into cake. The napkin and party decor were a tea party theme.
