A friend asked for a John Deere cake for her little guy who is crazy about tractors. This is a carved sheet cake. White cake with traditional butter cream. The cupcakes are chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream. The W is his initial and was turning 4.
A friend's son was having a bowling party and she wanted a bowling themed cake to match his invitations. There are 10 pins surrounding the bottom tier with one bowling ball. The argyle was to match his invites. His name on the top completed the design. White cake with traditional butter cream and fondant accents.
This was for a friend's little boy who wanted Lego Batman. I took the easy way out and did the landscape and added his actual Lego Batman toys to the cake. I just love the nightscapes on these Batman cakes. White cake with traditional butter cream and fondant accents.

This was another cake for Mercy Stables. This little girl wanted the bandanna but loves horses. We decided to go with horse shoes on the bottom with a horse topper. She was very pleased. This is white cake with traditional butter cream and hand drawn accents.
I was lucky enough to get to do two shower cakes for the same person. They both used the colors of the nursery so I wanted them to be similar but not too much so. I loved how this one turned out, too. Simple but elegant. This is white cake with traditional butter cream and fondant and ribbon accents.
This was another last minute work in and I am glad I am able to that every now and then. This was for a surprise 30th birthday cake. The wife was decorating in all things 30 and a lot her items had question marks so she chose to do mainly those. She didn't want it black but bright, festive, and whimsical. This was the end result. This was white cake with traditional butter cream with butter cream, and fondant accents.
This was for a Hawaiian themed baby boy shower. The hostess wanted to use the rubber duckies and I thought they looked a little lonely all by themselves on the cake. So, I added some hibiscus flowers and a little writing and it did the trick. This was a chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream.
I received a request for some fondant cupcake toppers for a garden party. The mother wanted bumble bees and flowers that matched her invitations, which she makes! She does fabulous work and she did both of my boys invites for their parties this year. Check out her site, Tula Designs.
My oldest son wanted Scooby Doo for his cake this year. His favorite episode is Foul Play in Fun Land so I themed it after that episode where they are the amusements park. I was super busy with all my other orders and thankfully my little sister came and helped me with his cake. She made the robot for the top who is the ghost in the episode. She wasn't too happy with her handy work but I think she did a great job for her first fondant character. The cake was red velvet with cream cheese for the top tier (the birthday boy's favorite cake) and white cake with traditional butter cream on the bottom. The accents were hand drawn and fondant.
This was for a friend's husband's 40th birthday. He is a big golfer so of course he had to have the giant golf ball on the green. This cake it red velvet on the bottom and the ball is yellow. It is all cream cheese icing complete with his nickname of the golf ball. The birthday boy loved it.
When my Mommy Grace called and asked if I could make a cake for her grandson's first birthday on short notice, I couldn't turn her down. He loves Wonder Pets and thankfully my local cake shop had the kit. I don't normally use them but they are great in a pinch. This is white cake with traditional butter cream and fondant accents.
Cake and smash cake together
A friend asked for a cake for her mother's 60th birthday. She was decorating with sunflowers so that's what we went with. This is chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream and butter cream sunflowers. It was my first attempt and I thought they were super cute. I am partial to them though!
This was for a friend's daughter's second birthday. The party was a luau themed and the mom wanted simple and cute with the hibiscus flowers. The cake is white cake with traditional butter cream with fondant and silk floral accents. Happy Birthday Miss Lucy!
