Leanna's Sweet Sixteen

Soccer friends asked if I would do a cake for their older daughter's Sweet Sixteen party. She picked a very sophisticated cake - this wedding cake (the middle one) she saw on the TLC show Cake Boss.

I am not much of a piper, but I think it turned out good and I really like the large flowers. Thank goodness for YouTube instructional videos that showed how to make them. The bottom layer is chocolate with chocolate buttercream filling and the top layer is the family's red velvet cake recipe.

King of the Jungle Baby Shower Cake

A client was throwing a baby shower and asked me to make a marble cake that would match the King of the Jungle decorations she had gotten on This is what I came up with.

I was working on my son's Diego cake and was able to make similar decorations all at the same time. It worked out great.

Go, Diego. Go! Cake

My son, Seth, had a Diego Birthday Party. I made him this cake. It is a lemon cake with buttercream frosting and marshmallow fondant decorations. The Diego figure is a candle I bought at Michael's. He loved the cake and had a fun party.

Stork Baby Shower Cake

I made this cake for a baby shower I was co-hosting this last weekend. My friend, April, is having her first girl after having 2 boys. I love the stork idea - when my kids were born I wrapped them up, put them in a basket, and took pictures of them on my doorstep. The cake is lemon with buttercream frosting and decorated with marshmallow fondant.
