Happy Birthday Mom!

Thursday, April 21, 2011 by admin

This year for my mom's birthday, she asked that I make her a special cake to celebrate! Of all the things I know my mom loves, purses is definitely at the top of her list. Seeing as though her favorite color is green, I decided to make her a cute green purse cake.

This cake is made with my favorite chocolate cake recipe, homemade raspberry filling and buttercream frosting. I decorated it with my marshmallow fondant, with the detail work being hand piped. This cake is by no means my most perfect cake, unfortunately, but I loved it and it tastes amazing!

Happy Adoption Day!

This cake was made with lots of love for my sweet little cousin Susie. She was adopted into my husband's family and this day was the celebration of her adoption being finalized.

This cake was strawberry (to match the color of the pink cake), buttercream frosting and marshmallow fondant on the bottom layer. The heart design on the top layer was made from white chocolate and resembles the heart necklace that my husband's aunt has given to all her adopted children as a special family memento.

Mod Little Monkies

Thursday, April 21, 2011 by admin

The first cake was made for the first birthday of a very sweet little boy. They had chosen the "mod monkey" theme and asked me to make a cake that would resemble the party's theme. This cake was chocolate with fresh raspberry filling. I used buttercream frosting for the cakes and fondant for the circles & monkey face. The family was super happy with the cake and I was thrilled to have help make the little guy's first birthday a day to remember!
The Second Birthday cake was for a my daughter Ashley's best friend Molly. Coincidentally, she also wanted a "mod monkey" themed birthday party! Her cake was extra special, it was my first time making a lemon cake! Luckily it turned out great and was extremely tasty. It has a delicious lemony frosting to go with it, decorations also made with the marshmallow frosting.
This cake was made for a 1st birthday party for a sweet little guy. He loves animals, in particular monkeys so his mom requested the "mod monkey" themed birthday cake. This cake sure has been popular among my friends & family this year!
