COCONUT CAKE

This is a 12" coconut birthday cake.  The cake is a chiffon cake and the filling is a coconut pastry cream with toasted coconut.  It is frosted with swiss meringue buttercream and covered with sweetened shredded coconut.  It was for a group of people, several of which were having birthday's.  The flowers are pesticide free roses from my garden.

I got a note from the woman that ordered the cake:

"The Coconut cake 🎂 was so good!! Everyone was raving, especially my husband Jimmy!!Thank you so much Pam"

RED VELVET CAKE FOR VALENTINE'S DAY

Here is a red velvet cake I made for Valentines Day.
I toasted some of the leftover cake in the oven, crushed it up, then put it on the side of the cake.
The top is some chocolate curls I made and then I added pink meringues and red fondant hearts.
The filling is cream cheese frosting.

GRADUATION CAKE FOR JESSE

I made this graduation cake for Jesse.  He was graduating from 5th grade.  He requested Red Velvet Cake, Chocolate Cake Pops, and Vanilla Cupcakes with Apricot Filling and Vanilla Buttercream.  His mom set up a beautiful display at their home.
I met this wonderful family because I found their business when I needed service on my VW.  They did an excellent job on my car and have become great customers.  They all love desserts and parties.  Obviously Jesse is taking after his Dad and loving cars too.  The cars on the cake are from his own collection and he picked these out special for me to put on his graduation cake.
Congratulations Jesse!!!

WEDDING CUPCAKES & A CUTTING CAKE

These cupcakes and small wedding cake were made for Jennifer & Roberts wedding at the La Quinta Resort in La Quinta, California.  The flavors were German Chocolate and Lemon Poppyseed with Raspberry Buttercream.
The small wedding (cutting) cake was vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream filling.
Everything was to be placed on to a cupcake stand with the cutting cake on top.  I did not get to place it on myself as it was a hot day and everything had to be kept in the refrigerator at the venue until closer to serving time.

BABY SHOWER TOPSY TURVY CAKE

 This cake was done for a baby boy shower.  The bottom layer was carrot cake, the middle layer was chocolate, and the top layer was coconut.  They all had buttercream fillings.
People ask me all the time how much time these type of cakes take to make.  I roughly figured that this cake took about 48 hours to make.  Truly a labor of love.

These vanilla cupcakes were made for a boy baby shower with a lamb and flower theme.  It is hard to see in the picture but the flower cupcakes were a two toned blue to match the invitations.
My client loved them when I delivered them to her beautiful home in Palm Springs.

MILE HIGH LEMON CAKE

Mile high lemon cake and lemon meringue pies for a party last night. The cake was about 10" high and built onto a cake stand. It was the most nervous I have ever been delivering a cake. Thank goodness it got to the party without toppling over.
