Thank you Shauna for the lovely photo collage!! I'm very impressed with the display and arrangement. And I am in love with her reaction to the large cupcake - truly priceless!
I love this picture! The facial expression on the cute little girl is truly priceless. That is exactly what I'm after and why I bake.
One of my favorite cakes. Not quite a replica of a cake that I've seen online. I had a blast making it.
I love making kids cakes. And I'll say this a lot. I had great practice with my nieces' and nephews' cakes when they were little. The themes and colors are amazing, challenging, and fun to recreate on a cake. This one is based on a YouTube video by Super Simple Songs.
I really try to make every decoration to be edible. I could have easily bought a pair of plastic baby shoes but decided on buying a mold, filling it with melted white chocolate, and ta-da... cute little baby shoes. Chocolate candy pearls are great for added bling.
A 6-inch square cake... see... great things do come in small packages. The twin girls, Karin and Kaila have recently turned 1 and if you're browsing through this page, you'll see their 1st birthday cake - the hibiscus & twin sea turtles cake.
I love elephants. And I just couldn't resist creating this.
1st birthday cake for twin girls, Karin and Kaila. Their mom was very specific in what she wanted: the colors blue and pink, hibiscus flowers, and sea turtles. The smile on her face when she picked up the cake was a great reward.
Too cute, I tell ya! At one time I was a bit worried because all I was making were Hello Kitty cakes and other pink cakes. Well, I've recently grown to like the many shades of pink and Hello Kitty is too adorable to dislike. Tara's parents also wanted cupcakes... you can drool over those in my Cupcakes page.
A magic themed birthday is deserving of a top-hat-and-bunny cake. It's an iconic combination when it comes to magic shows.
Both magic show cakes make me smile. Truly magical, don't you think so? Well, all I can say is that it was happily received when the dad and grandma picked 'em up.
Ah, retirement... a well deserved, long awaited, and permanent vacation from the workplace. The duo cakes were for a co-worker and her fire fighter husband that retired a while back and are now living it up at the coast.
Simplicity at its best? Well, I sure think so... but then again, I'm biased since I made this lovely cake. Fresh rose petals and leaves added the right amount of color and sophistication.
I thoroughly enjoyed making this cake. Have you ever made something that you just can't help giggle because whatever that you're making is coming out to be more than what you were expecting?
Not just another pretty cake. It's Danicka's pretty & awesome cake.
A cake for my brother that I swear plays this game in his sleep. He plays it hours on end so I'm sure he dreams of it too. I made this cake as simple as possible since Tetris is a game without the big graphics of today's video games.
Spray painted graffiti is definitely a big part of hip-hop in the 80's. And to have a proper hip-hop cake, a little graffiti is fitting. This was a fun cake to make.
Fondant is a great medium, just like clay, to mold and shape into... I suppose, whatever you can imagine. It is pliable and easy to roll out. Steak and mystery meat anyone?
My niece and nephew are big fans of Anime. I know that they grew up watching Naruto and Dragon Ball Z so I went with this theme for their joint birthday party. I took the easy route and found the symbols online. I hand painted each fondant emblem and painted the characters and greeting on the frosting.
My parents love to play Scrabble. To celebrate my Papa's 73rd birthday, I had to make a Scrabble cake. The letter tiles are lemon shortbread cookies in which I hand painted the letters and numbers on to hardened royal icing.
A 4-inch smash cake - a perfect way to make a child's birthday extra special and a bit more personalized.
I made this tiered cake and smash cake in a tiny kitchen of a one bedroom apartment back in 2011. At the time, the only place that I could snap a picture that had good lighting was in the refrigerator.
I was asked to make a baby shower cake and all I was given was an emailed picture of the shower invitation. Sometimes pictures are all it takes for me to make a cake. Just saying...
I had great times baking cakes in my one bedroom apartment from 2010-2011. I didn't really have a dining area because I turned it into a workspace with a large Ikea free-standing base cabinet and pretty much the entire wall had metal shelving where I stored my ingredients and utensils. I loved the compact work area though because everything was in front of me.
This cake makes me smile.
Chocolate is a great way to make your own decorations. Acacia trees and elephants are a must for a Serengeti scene.
A very cool cake for my nephew that liked creepy, crawly things.
Another refrigerator picture of a cake that has a very classic combination of pinks and browns - very timeless. The letters are made with modeling chocolate or chocolate plastic.
Thank you Fely for the awesome picture.
Thank you Tammy for the fabulous picture.
He's surprised that he's going to a party.
