Polka Dot 1st Birthday

Posted by Steph on Apr 27, 2013 in Baby, Birthday, My Cakes

Last weekend we celebrated my nephew’s 1st birthday!  My sister requested a cake with blue polka dots in various shades.  And of course we had to have a smash cake for him! (and he LOVED it! 🙂  )  This main cake is a 12″ and the smash cake is 6″.  The dots on the main cake are fondant, but I don’t do those on smash cakes as its safer for these little ones to just have buttercream.  Happy Birthday, Myles!

The Big 1-0 !

Posted by on Aug 27, 2012 in 3D Cakes, Birthday, Cupcakes, My Cakes, Novelty

This cake was made for 2 beautiful girls turning 10 years old!  The cake was made from 2 9×13 cakes that I cut in half and stacked up.  The accents are fondant.  I also made up a few cupcakes to go along with them (see below).  The design was based on a party napkin that was being used for the party.

The replica

A friend loved the cake at the top of the blog (brown/green one with the calla lilies) but wanted it in colors to match their party ware.  So this is what we did 🙂

The grad cake

Posted by on Jul 19, 2009 in 3D Cakes, Birthday, Graduation, My Cakes

This cake was a labor of love for my mom and my little sister, Kelsey.   My mom graduated in May with her Master’s degree and my sister graduated from high school in June.  So proud of both of them! 🙂  Their party was this weekend and I had seen a cake done in this structure last year some time.  I loved how fun it looked so I sweet talked my older sister into helping me and we planned out the design last week.  Then spent over 4 hrs decorating it together.  The top two tiers on this cake are fake cake because they didn’t need quite that much cake for the party – however this type of cake can be done with all real cake.  Its all a matter of physics people 🙂  All of the tiers are 8″ squares, covered in fondant.

They loved the end result so that made us happy as can be!   Hope you enjoy it too…

Whimsical fun

Posted by on Jun 18, 2009 in Birthday, My Cakes

Its mid June … so time for the next work birthday cake for my hubby…  I confess I spaced out that it was THIS week until he reminded me on Tue!  Oooops!  But I planned out the idea (based on another cake I had seen and loved) in an hour and started baking the next day.  The actual decorating flew by faster than I thought it would.  And the result is as fun as I hoped! 🙂  This 3 tier cake is made up of 4″, 6″ & 8″ cakes, fondant covered and the accents out the top are gumpaste.
