If you’ve been around here since the Very Beginning way back in 2012 (if so, I sincerely apologize for middle school Sofia’s aversion towards grammar rules and her other strange antics) then you probably know of my work with the organization Cake4Kids. A wonderful bay area based nonprofit devoted to baking birthday cakes for foster children and at-risk youth, I was deeply saddened when I moved out of the Bay Area and couldn’t volunteer anymore. You can imagine my joy when a few years later, they opened a new branch much closer to where I now live. I immediately took up baking cakes for them again, starting with this one: a mint green cake with a real big gold lined bow topper.
Among the latest trends in the world of baking, naked cakes seems to have become ever so popular. Beautiful cakes for weddings and celebrations kept popping up on my Pinterest (yes, I Pinterest) and I wanted to incorporate this unique look into this delicious lemon raspberry cake.
Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to make a baby shower cake for 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 one for a twins’ baby shower.
So it’s been a looong time since I’ve posted a decorated cake (almost 5 months!!), and I’m so glad to be able to share this super cute garden themed cake that I made for a little girl’s 1st birthday.
Finals were a thing all last week for me, so what better way to end it with a vanilla bean coconut cake?
Is it not the most heavenly thing you’ve ever seen?
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.
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.
Here’s another healthy and yummy recipe- How to make this incredibly delicious and easy RAW VEGAN Banana Raspberry Swirl cake.
This cake is a bit similar to my raw vegan cherry “cheese”cake that I posted not too long ago. They both have the same crust and a similar swirl look, but they both taste very different and truthfully I can’t really pick a better one. They are both packed with wonderful flavors, so I will leave that question to you. You can try out both of these desserts and let me know if you liked one better than the other, or like me you can’t pick.
But anyways, this dessert will impress any guest when they come to know that this is totally vegan and gluten-free.
