AVA'S 6TH BIRTHDAY CAKE

I do Ava's birthday cake every year. This is her 6 year birthday cake! I love watching my customer's kids grow up.
Again she was very specific about the flavors she wanted Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Buttercream.

PEGGY'S 90TH BIRTHDAY CAKE

Another fun birthday cake for Peggy. What an inspiration, 90 and still swims and plays tennis. I did her 85th birthday cake too, can't wait for her to see this one. Hopefully I will get to meet her one of these days.
Flavors were chocolate cake with raspberry mousse.

GOLD OMBRE WEDDING CAKE

Many times I make a cake for a venue and never get to meet the bride and groom.  Such is the scenario with this cake.  This cake is beautiful on it's own but before the reception the pastry department at the venue put some flowers on it.  I did not get to see it adorned with the flowers because they did it sometime after I delivered and before the wedding reception.
The middle tier technique is called Ombre which means a varigated color treatment.  The bottom tier was sprayed with an edible gold spray "paint".
The flavors of this cake were lemon cake with raspberry buttercream filling and lemon curd filling.

PRESLEY'S 1ST BIRTHDAY

I had to show you what a customer of mine did for her daughter's 1st Birthday party using my designer cupcakes and a large "Smash CupCake". Such a beautiful party for the most darling little girl with a cool first name!!

DESIGNER CUPCAKES

Here is a sampling of some of the designer cupcakes I make.  They can be made in any flavor or color combination. These are covered with fondant for decorating purposes but have a generous amount of frosting under the fondant on top of the cake.

BAKING WITH MY GRAND NIECE

PORTION CONTROL USING ICE CREAM SCOOP
 My grand niece came over to help me bake some chocolate whoopie pies. We had the best time and she was a delightful addition to my kitchen.
I sent her home with a whole box of whoopie pies and a new pair of shoes.  We had to do a little shopping after all that baking!!
I'm looking forward to her next kitchen visit.

SWEET 16 BIRTHDAY CAKE

Chocolate Hazelnut Crunch is the flavor of this cake.  Sweet 16 with a candy theme.  This was a fun cake to make and even though small 8" there is a lot going on and it took quite a bit of time to make.  I even made the sprinkles on top and had to individually adhere them to the cake.
