Two Peas in a Pod Cake

Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to make a baby shower cake for my best friend’s aunt aka the talented lady who designed my logo!

This cake has been by far one of my favorite cakes to make. The mother-to-be is having twins and requested a “two peas in a pod” theme. I was ecstatic to design this cake as I’ve never done a cake for twins.

Batman Cake

Thanksgiving break happens to fall around the same time as my dad and my little brother’s birthdays. My brother’s birthday came first which meant I had to somehow find the time to make a cake for him.

Sweet 16 Cherry Blossom Cake

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a fondant cake. I was soo excited to get this cake order for a cherry blossom cake for a girl at my school’s sweet 16. It was a very exciting experience as I’ve never done a cake like this before. Her party was cherry blossom themed, so the cake I made followed that theme as well.

Pink Ruffle Cake {Cake 4 Kids Cake #10}

It has been a REALLY long time since I’ve made a cake for “Cake 4 Kids” and I’m so glad I finally made time to make a cake for them. (For more info on Cake 4 Kids, check out my Cake 4 Kids page.)

This time I made a cake for a little girl’s 2nd birthday. For this cake, I decided to use frosting to decorate instead of fondant to broaden my icing decorating skills.

50th Birthday, Black & Gold, Road To Life Cake

It’s been four whole posts since I’ve written a cake post, so here you go. As you can tell from the title, this was a 50th birthday cake for one of my parents’ very close friend. For this cake, I collaborated with a good friend of my parents’ and it turned out to be a wonderful experience. She and another good friend used to have an amazing cake business and over the years I have learned quite a lot from them.

2 Tier Smiley Face Themed Cake {Vegan}

It’s been too long since I’ve posted a decorated cake, so here’s a cake I recently made for a boy’s 1st birthday.  The cake was a two tier vegan cake with a vegan buttercream frosting.

I had a lot of fun making this cake. There were so many colors I could’ve used, but I settled on yellow, orange, blue, red, and a nice mint green. The boy’s mom wanted smiley faces incorporated into the cake without using too much yellow, so I settled on using mint green fondant as the base color for the cakes.
