a lavender wedding

I was so honored to be able to provide the desserts for Dave and Stephanie. They contacted me awhile back. I work with Dave and he had sampled many of my lovely cupcakes! Stephanie knew that she wanted a cupcake tower. We met and discussed options and decided to split the cupcakes – half groom’s […]

princess cake

Yes I got engaged and yes I promised the future hubby that I’d take less cake orders and spend more time with him, but this order was one I couldn’t pass up! Brenda asked me to make her daughter a princess birthday cake! Lots of purples, pinks and sugar pearls. I decided to try a […]

wedding shower cake & cookie class preperation

Here is a recent order for a wedding shower cake – genuine buttercream with white fondant flowers. This order called for a lot of buttercream so I obviously made a huge batch. One thing I learned was that the proportion of meringue to butter doesn’t always translate in a big batch. While this batch turned […]

useful tip tuesday: practice makes perfect

I wanted to blog about everything I’ve been up to lately and I know I haven’t posted a UTT, so I figured I’d roll it into one. I’m sure you’ve heard it a million times, but practice really does make perfect. If you are a perfectionist like I am, you want it to come out […]

After cleaning  up my WP dashboard (aka marking 67834567 comments as spam) here I am to write a new post – which I’m sure you’ve been eagerly awaiting. I don’t have a Useful Tip Tuesday (other than don’t spend more than 3-4 days in Vegas […]

sailboat baby shower cake

In addition to the coconut birthday cake, I also made a baby shower cake for my best friend. Rachel was headed up this way  for her cousin-in-law’s baby shower and requested a cake. I immediately thought ducks, blocks, diapers – but this cake would be slightly more original. Rachel sent me the invitation and told […]
