VALENTINES DAY ARTSY HEART COOKIES

I made these cookies using the same technique as I used for the Cactus Cookies.  I love the way they turned out and I think they look like little pieces of edible art!!!

VALENTINES DAY 2018 COCONUT CAKE

I have posted pictures of my coconut cake before but I really wanted to again because of this cake with my handmade white chocolate hearts.  This filling is coconut pastry cream and the whole cake is frosted with vanilla buttercream and sweetened flaked coconut.

CACTUS COOKIES

I made these cookies for a super nice client that was putting together amenity baskets for a group staying at the Ritz Carlton Palm Desert.
These cookies are edible art and would be a great take away favor for your next party.

PEAR FRANGIPANE TART

I teach Baking & Pastry classes.  We made this beautiful Pear Frangipane Tart in two of my classes last year.  Frangipane is an almond filling that gets baked into the tart shell with the pears placed on top in a decorative design.  The crust is a sweet dough and oh so delicious with the frangipane and pears.

BOUGAINVILLEA WEDDING CAKE

I made this cake for my best friends niece.  She wanted pink and red bougainvillea on the cake.  I had never used these flowers on a cake before so I tested them out first.  They do not do well as cut flowers so I had to cut and place the bougainvillea on the cake just one hour before the wedding started.
The flavor of the cake was carrot cake with cream cheese filling.  I iced the cake with vanilla buttercream and did a simple rustic design on the cake.

CHRISTMAS PLACARD COOKIES

I have a wonderful customer that loves to entertain especially during the holidays.  She wanted placard cookies this year to put at each guests place at the table.  This is what I came up with for her.  They were really fun to make.  I wrapped each one in a cello bag so the guest could take them home.

UNDER THE SEA BIRTHDAY CAKE

This cake was for one of my customers granddaughter.  She told me she liked all things underwater so I made this playful cake for her.
The flavor was lemon cake with lemon curd filling and lemon buttercream filling.

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"

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!!!


CAKE POPS & A BIRTHDAY CAKE


I love watching my customer's kids grow up. I made cake pops for this beautiful young lady on her 16th birthday and this cake for her 18th.

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.
