Little Mermaid Cake

I made this Little Mermaid cake for a sweet little birthday girl. She provided the toy Ariel, Flounder and Sebastian, but everything else is 100% edible.
There were three layers of vanilla cake inside:  one purple layer, one blue layer and one yellow layer.
This cake may have taken forever to make, but it was so fun to create all those little sea floor details.  I loved it!  A cake befitting a little princess.

10th Anniversary Cake

My husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary last week!

I wanted to bake him his favorite raspberry flavored cake. It needed to look romantic and simple, and anniversary-ish. :) I was happy with how it turned out, and the raspberry cake with raspberry buttercream is really soooo delicious.

Wouldn't this be such a pretty Valentine's Day gift?

Mom's 50th Birthday

My mom had a big birthday recently! She loves german chocolate cake, and so we decided to do a top layer of german chocolate cake and decorate a bottom layer with fondant to represent different parts of her personality. This may be one of my very favorite cakes I've done before, and it was so fun to do it for someone I love so much!

Some of the details up close:

My mom is amazing with plants and loves to garden,

She loves her family. And she loves to shop!
She is a woman of faith.She is an amazing librarian and an excellent teacher. I used the books to list all of her personal "titles."She loves hiking and completed a huge backpacking trip this past summer!
She is gorgeous, and is always put together.
Happy Birthday, Mom. You are so amazing!! I love you!

Piano Wedding Cake

The couple that ordered this wedding cake had the cutest story ever! The bride is a piano teacher, and the two met when the groom signed up to take piano lessons - now they are married! What a sweet story. They wanted a wedding cake to represent their history together, and so we decided on a piano keyboard for the bottom layer. They requested that the middle layer have the music to Theme From Love Story - wasn't that a romantic idea? The top layer we experimented with, but in the end, I think the piano keyboard repeated tied the cake together best. This bride and groom have excellent taste, as they chose my very favorite cake flavors - pumpkin cake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting and raspberry cake with raspberry buttercream frosting. The whole cake was also covered and decorated with marshmallow fondant. I cut and served the cake at the reception, and it was fun to hear all the comments about how delicious the cake tasted, and see many people come back for seconds. Not a piece was left at the end of the night! Catherine and Aaron - I wish you the very best of luck. Congrats on a beautiful wedding!

Monogrammed Sugar Cookies

I was asked to make these sugar cookies for a wedding reception. The mother-of-the-groom ordered them. Her idea was to individually wrap them and hang them in a tree for guests to take as they left - how cute is that idea??
I'm disappointed in how my camera failed to capture the colors of these cookies. They were the cutest summery orange and pink, to match the reception colors.
I sampled one of the extra cookies, and was reminded again why I love this recipe. It is such a yummy, soft, buttery cookie - absolutely delicious!
I hope the wedding reception was wonderful and that the guests loved their monogrammed sugar cookies!

Winnie the Pooh Cake

A sweet little boy was celebrating his first birthday, and his mom wanted a Winnie the Pooh cake for the special occasion! She chose a square cake on the bottom with an adorable color and pattern combination, topped with a round cake. I made the round cake into Winnie the Pooh's honeypot, and added a number 1 and flowers on the top.
Winnie the Pooh sat on top for the birthday baby.
The whole finished product.
The cake was a yellow cake, with raspberry jam filling between layers, and buttercream frosting. Marshmallow fondant covered the cake. I hope that the party was a huge hit!
