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.

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.

HALLOWEEN Treats {& Video Tutorial}

Last Friday was one of my favorite holidays- It was HALLOWEEN! I have always loved Halloween since I was a toddler. I love the costumes and the candy, but most of all the Halloween baking!

There are so many things that I would’ve made this year, but I settled on a couple of very simple and tasty treats that were really fun to make.

The first treat I made were these very cute mini candy corn themed cupcakes. These were SO easy to make. I basically took some vanilla cake batter and dyed half of the batter orange and the other half yellow with food coloring. Then I put a scoop of yellow cake batter in the cupcake liner and then on top, a scoop of orange cake batter. I let the cupcakes bake like usual and then piped on some white vanilla buttercream on top to complete the candy corn effect.

French Macarons

Hi everyone! Today I will be sharing a dessert that has been on my baking bucket list for the longest time- French Macarons!

These are very pretty and delicate sugary treats.

Just to make it clear, Macarons are not the same as Macaroons. I know a lot of people are confused about what the difference is, and the difference is that Macarons are almond based while Macaroons are coconut based.

Daisy “Cake 4 Kids” Cake #6

I have finally gotten to bake after so long! Like 3 WHOLE WEEKS. Yeah, I know it’s unbelievable.

The reason I couldn’t bake was because we were getting our kitchen remodeled which meant a new oven, so I guess it was worth the wait (even if I was getting low on sugar :/ ).

The cake that I baked this time was for Cake 4 Kids (an organization that I volunteer for). It was for a little girl that was turning two.

I decided to cover this cake with frosting instead of fondant. This cake was a 3 layer white cake with vanilla buttercream.

Because this cake was for a little girl, I loved planning out how I was going to decorate this cake. I probably had about a hundred girly things I could do with this cake. There were fondant bows, icing flowers, chocolate ribbons. Don’t even get me started on the different color schemes. 😉

At the end, I settled for an orange cake and white fondant daisies with yellow centers.

Simple and sweet.

Buttercream Rose Cake

Hi everyone, last weekend I made a buttercream rose cake. I used a 2 layer 6 inch chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream tinted pink with a bit of orange. To make the roses, I  made swirls that looked like rosettes on the sides and top of the cake. I started at the bottom of the cake and made my way to the top. This is a really simple cake and is very forgiving because even if you mess up on one rose all you have to do is scrape it off and try again! We had a few guests over and they enjoyed the cake with us.
