baltimore themed groom’s cake

Long time, no post! I’ve been meaning to post pictures of this fun Baltimore cake! A good friend of ours asked me to make the groom’s cake for their rehearsal dinner. The groom grew up in Maryland and they both lived in Baltimore so it made sense to have a Baltimore themed cake. Together we […]

kara’s cakery on WBAL

This past week has been a whirlwind! Katey and Ashley of Lemon and Lime Event Design invited me to help them with a segment on WBAL on wedding cake alternatives. Not only to contribute some of those “alternatives” but to help design the table setupof dessert alternatives. We decided on the two alternatives that LLED […]

lemon goodness

I made lemon curd a really long time ago and it was amazing – ever since then, I’ve been dying to make a lemon cake.

We crumbled up the yellow cake, added some cream cheese frosting and shaped some candy corns, square monster heads and […]

hokie wedding…

Gearing up for a hokie wedding? Maaayyybbeeeee…….. stay tuned!

maybe one day…

I walk past this store front every time I go from work to the Daily Grind weekday mornings. It would be the PERFECT spot for Kara’s Cakery. Fell’s Point doesn’t have a stand-out cupcake/cake shop. I’m secretly hoping I get a call one day from someone with more money than they know what to do […]

Layers of chocolate cake with chocolate fudge filling, covered in homemade whipped cream and topped with chocolate shavings. And of course, the […]
