Purple, Pink & Green Slice of Cake

This cake was a surprise for the girlfriend of one of my closest friends.  I love this cake design.  It’s so fun and comes together really easy.  It has become my go to cake design when I need a cake to serve 25ppl or less.  
The flavor was chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream and milk chocolate ganache.   
Im really happy with the color scheme (which was taken from ribbon I had on hand), the green just seems to pop against the purple. 

It’s turning out to be quite a popular design as I actually have quite a few requests for these cakes coming up in the next few months J

Sneak Peek: Teal and Purple Sweet 16

Here is a sneak peak of a Sweet 16 cake that I am working on.
I love animal prints and to pair it with a teal/purple/black color scheme is really takes it to another level (i love cakes with black in the color scheme). 
The invite is super chic and made designing the cake really fun!  I submitted four options and this is one they chose – I’m also adding a few elements which are not shown in the sketch. 

There will be lots more to details and some behind the scenes action to come, so stay tuned!Photobucket    

Stacked Baby Block Cakes


I delivered this Stacked Baby Blocks Cake to Tamara’s baby shower this past weekend.  

The inspiration for the design came from a cake I saw  and loved on DeviantArt.   Each block has four panels and each panel has a different design.  

The cake flavor is Cookies N Cream, covered in milk chocolate ganache and decorated with White Chocolate Fondant.   Water is cotton candy, Ducks are candy melts and bears are gumpaste.  Enjoy!

Happy Mothers Day!



Happy Mother’s Day to all!  

I hope you all enjoyed this wonderful Sunday with your loved ones!

I made this cake for a mother’s day dinner.  I decided to keep it simple and go with a basic design of flowers and scroll work.

The flavor is banana cake with caramel buttercream and chocolate ganache, covered in White Chocolate fondant and decorated with Hawaiian Plumeria flowers.   

Enjoy!

Banana Split Cake

Banana Split cake for a 31st birthday.  It’s a 10” cake, carved to resemble a serving dish – the cake flavor is Neopolitan (alternate layers of chocolate and vanilla cakes w/strawberry buttercream) , covered in chocolate ganache.  White Chocolate Fondant was used to cover and decorate. Ice Cream Scoops are jumbo cupcakes covered in buttercream.  Banana and cherries are real.  Enjoy!

3D Giant Slice of Cake

When I designed this cake, I had absolutely no idea how cute it would turn out!!!! This has to be my favorite cake that I have made all year. I love the overall design and the way the color scheme came together.  This cake was for my sisters 21st birthday, and she didn’t want a big cake since she was also having Pineapple Upside Down Cake at her dinner.  It’s a 10” cake – the flavors are chocolate cake with caramel buttercream, covered in chocolate ganache I used White Chocolate Fondant (my new fave) to cover and decorate.   Enjoy!

Donut Cake

I had soooo much fun making this cake. After researching donut cakes online I found a quick video on youtube by UrbanSweetsLA. I started off with a 10”x4” round vanilla cake, which was filled and coated with Vanilla SMBC. I then carved the cake to resemble a donut shape.

I then mixed white and chocolate fondant together to make the “donut” color (it’s a little darker than I would have liked) and covered the cake.

Pink fondant “frosting”

For presentation purposes I stopped by my local Dunkin Donuts to get a box ($.50), I think this added a better touch than just a decorated cakeboard.
The final cake!
