Polka dots!

Posted by Steph on Jan 18, 2014 in Birthday, My Cakes

While polka dots don’t make it into the clothes I wear, I just love them for cakes!  They are so festive and fun!  This time I decided to do an ombre gradient of color using 3 different shades of each color.  The star on top is also a gradient (which you can see in the 2nd picture below).  This cake is an 8″ & 10″.

Petals

Posted by Steph on Aug 28, 2013 in Birthday, My Cakes, Wedding & Bridal

Here is another style of cake I saw online that I wanted to try.  Slightly time consuming but not too bad.  This was for my husband’s work for August…I did not realize I had done this same shade in June!  Oh well 🙂  They didn’t complain…after all, it IS cake!

Roses are Teal

Posted by Steph on Aug 27, 2013 in Birthday, My Cakes, Wedding & Bridal

I saw this method of decorating a cake online and had to try it!  I have some kinks to work out, but overall it turned out pretty well.  My husband’s coworkers got to enjoy this (and eat the mistakes on it 😉  ).

Graduation time…

Posted by on Jun 28, 2010 in Graduation, My Cakes

And this year I got to make one for the daughter of a friend who graduated high school this spring.  Their request was turquoise and zebra – and “can it be sparkly”?  So I got myself an airbrush, played around and ended up spraying the bottom tier a pearly color.  Its not as easy to tell in the pic but boy in the sun it sparkled!

Aly's Baby Shower

Posted by on Jun 28, 2010 in Baby, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, My Cakes

Back in June of 2007 I was asked to make a bridal shower cake for my wonderful cousin, Aly.  This cake pic has had a home at the top of the blog since day 1 and I get SO many comments on that cake.  Well now 3 yrs later we are celebrating the soon to be born baby to this wonderful couple! 🙂  So of course I was excited to do the baby shower cake!  I went off of the party ware they had purchased ~ see a pic below to compare 🙂  Cake is all buttercream except the birds and nest, which are gumpaste.

Bridal Shower Cookies

Posted by on Feb 6, 2010 in Cookies, My Cakes, Wedding & Bridal

Long time no post!  We are in the middle of a kitchen remodel here so I haven’t been doing many cakes lately.  Mostly because so much of my stuff is packed or hard to find.  I do have great work area though thanks to a temporary kitchen setup.  Here are some cookies I did that were for a bridal shower. 70 cookies total… This was my first time playing with the tiered cake cookie cutter despite having it since last summer.  So much fun!  I can’t wait to do more designs with it.
