It's (going to be) A BOY shower cake!

Congratulations to my friend J. who is going to be a Grandma! She ordered a baby shower cake for her daughter's shower last weekend. The only requests were that it be fondant covered and maybe have some airplanes on it. Here's what we came up with---
The cake was white cake with blue swirls and a bit of buttercream frosting underneath the marshmallow fondant.
This little boy is going to be welcomed into one great family and I'm happy I was able to make his first celebration cake!

Birthday Cake!

A friend of my husband's ordered a birthday cake for his wife (also my friend) and requested white cake with chocolate frosting. She supposedly thought that he was ordering it from Costco or making it himself, so I wanted to keep it simple, yet stylish and as far from commercial as I could. I found a similar cake on cake central, but not completely with chocolate frosting, so this is my take on that design...
Happy Birthday, Chrissy!

Happy 1st Birthday, Taylor!

In honor of his parents love of SEC football and favorite college, Taylor's birthday cake was fashioned after the tiger mascot of Auburn University.
Chocolate fudge cake with cream cheese frosting and fondant decor awaited the party goers of this little boy's milestone birthday!

"Imagine if..."

It's the theme of the Alaska State Fair this year. Basically, imagine anything you want coming true.
Now think of a Birthday cake idea.
Specifically for a gal who likes to travel.
Put them together and what have you got...bippity, boppity, umm...sorry, too much Cinderella around here lately.


The North Star Bakery in Wasilla sponsored the contest and though there weren't a lot of entrants, it was still a fun time.

I took the cake to my friend's Birthday party afterward and she loved it. In fact, it fed the whole restaurant, guests and workers included! Everybody loves a piece of Birthday cake.
