Safari Friends Cake

A client emailed me about 6 months ago to make a cake for her son's first birthday. I penciled her in and waited. She sent me a link to these paper goods she was using for the party to use to create a design for the cake.

This is what I came up with. The bottom layer was chocolate with strawberry filling and the top layer was white cake with lemon filling. The smash cake was also chocolate. I really loved the way the smash cake turned out. Here's a close up:

Baby A Mini-Cupcakes

Last weekend I made these mini-cupcakes for a client who was having a baby naming celebration. The little one's name started with an A, so I made tiny letter As and little flowers to go with them. They were so cute. My kids ate a batch that were a little overcooked (this was my 1st time making mini-cupcakes, so I had to play with it a bit). They still loved them and especially liked popping the whole thing in their mouth.

35th Birthday Cake

I had a customer order this cake for her own birthday. It is nice to do something like that for yourself - I typically get Hostess Cupcakes for my birthday, which I love, but a cool cake not made by myself would be nice. The bottom layer was white cake with a strawberry cream filling, the middle was chocolate cake with a custard filling, and the top layer was lemon cake with a lemon jell filling.

Rose Anniversary Cake

My friend was throwing a party for their parent's 40th anniverasry and asked me to do a cake with roses. I had always wanted to make a cake like this. I frosted the cakes and piped cornelli lace on them. I stacked them with those plastic columns then hid the columns with fresh roses. The only glitch was that the columns were taller then I wanted so I had to have my husband saw and sand them down to the proper size!
