Golf Cake

This ended up being an impromptu Golf Cake for my brother's Birthday. My camera was having trouble, so it's quite a blurry shot, sorry. (The grass is buttercream done with a tip not coconut.)

Football Cake

Football cake!! This is all chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing inbetween the 4 layers and covered on the outside. I really tried to do some texture tricks, but it just doesn't work too well with buttercream. So I can see why fondant would've been a good choice for this one. Live and learn! (But it'll taste better, right?)

Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake


Nothing goes better together than raspberry and dark chocolate. I've always wanted to make a cheesecake from scratch with a springform pan. For my husband's and I 11th year anniversary, we were just staying in and I thought I should make a special dessert. So this was it. It's a New York style cheesecake with raspberry and semi sweet chocolate spooned on top, when baked sporaticaly sunk into the top. After the cheesecake cooled I made a chocolate ganache to spread over the top. Then served with a dollop of whipped cream. This is a very rich dessert, but very decadent also. It was the perfect anniversary surprise.

Flowers & Fairies

I had a job to make a fairy cake, the customer bought the fairy and I made the cake. It's a chocolate cake with white buttercream frosting in between the layers. I decorated with vines and flowers, the flowers I made out of royal icing and I also made the butterfly out of royal icing and curved it, so it looks like it's wings are ready to take flight.

Pink & Brown Polka Dot Wedding Cake

Here is another wedding cake. It turned out so cute and looks so bright and bubbly! I was able to help a friend put this together for her daughter's wedding. We had so much fun working together.

Would "Ace of Cakes" hire me???

My sister LOVES purses and shoes. Her husband wanted to suprise her with a cake. So I tried to be "Ace of Cakes" and came up with this purse cake. I put her monogram on the sides of the purse and her age as part of the flowers in the corner. It is a 3 layer cake. I made the white cake from scratch (it tasted like a sugar cookie) and with a raspberry cream cheese filling. She ended up having quite the crowd over for presents and cake so I made cupcakes for the kiddos too. Just white cake with a chocolate butter cream frosting (just butter cream for the pink ones) and sugar sprinkles. The cake was a hit and my sis was very surprised!
