Monkey Cake

I was asked to do a monkey cake for a one year old boy's birthday. Monkeys are harder to mold than you would think, but they turned out very cute and whimsical. This is a chocolate cake with Oreo filling.

Lee Wedding

Last weekend I did this wedding cake. Weddings make me so nervous and stressed. This cake was tough because it was so simple. When there aren't any flowers or other decorations, it's easier to see any flaws in the icing of the cake. This is a two toned buttercream cake, with a ribbon to hide where the colors change from brown to cream.

High School Musical Cake

My oldest daughter just turned 10! She wanted a High School Musical party. We set up each activity as a "class" and had a Pep Rally at the end with the kids performing numbers from the movies. Everything was red and white (East High colors). The cake was white cake with strawberry filling. The stage is a piece of cardboard covered in fondant. All the decorations are fondant also. She and her friends had a great time.

Baby Shower

This is a cake I did for a lady in my ward. It is white cake with strawberry filling. She wanted whipped cream frosting, which I haven't done much of. When I was done, the edge got nicked and the more I tried to fix it the more messed up it got. I had to add more clouds, but it turned out fine.

1st Birthday

This is another version of the Pink Cake Box cake I've done a few times. The bottom layer is white with strawberry filling, the middle is chocolate with Oreo filling, and the top was marble with chocolate filling. The mom was really sweet. She brought hair bows for my girls. Check out her website

King Putt

A boy in our neighborhood was having his birthday party at King Putt. It is an indoor miniature golf course that is in the dark and all lit up with black lights. I tried to use colors that would reflect this. The course is an Egyptian theme, hence the pyramid and the birthday boy requested there be a ball and clubs on the cake.

Baby Shower

This is a cake I did for a baby shower. The baby's room was to be decorated in pink and chocolate brown with baby blocks, so I used that for idea for inspiration.
