Halloween Black and Orange Cake Pops

Halloween Cake Pops!  Cake pops are so good.  It has moist but dense cake inside.  It really resembles a truffle.  So it's more like a cake truffle coated with candy coating or chocolate.  Great for parties!

Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Muffins!

YA'LL!!!   Ya'll....I mean seriously.  This has to be a recipe put out by the Devil himself.  Made from scratch, moist, rich, doughnuty, cinnamon-sugary heaven.  If you like old fashioned cake doughnuts and you love muffins...this is for you.  This is the best of both.   A moist, tender, rich cinnamon sugar flavored cake doughnut muffin!  Along the lines of a great coffee cake but tastes like a doughnut.  I can't even tell you how good this is!

Purple Cupcakes with Paper Picks and Fondant Flower Toppers

These cupcakes were for a University student from her mother who lives far away.  Her daughter is a freshman this year and she could not be with her on her 18th birthday.  So, she called me to make special cupcakes for her to share with her friends.  I hand made the purple polka dot picks and the fondant flower toppers.  They also have pretty pearl sugar sprinkles and purple cupcake liners.

Roll Tide Alabama Helmet and A Cupcake Cakes

ROOOOOLLLLLL TIDE, ROLL!!!  Alabama Crimson Tide Cupcake cakes featuring an Alabama helmet and the signature "A".

Dukes of Hazard General Lee Cupcake Cake with Rebel Flag

The Dukes of Hazard are back!  Did they ever leave?  Well, here is a cupcake cake with the Rebel flag as a background with edible glitter, and a General Lee car right in the center.  Yee Haw!

Rarity My Little Pony Cake with Rainbow

I loved making this My Little Pony cake.  The rainbow was a huge challenge, but I think it turned out good.   It's funny how things come back into style for kids.  I played with My Little Pony when I was a kid a loooong, loooong, loooong time ago!

Gold 50th Anniversary Cake

I made this one for a couple's 50th Anniversary party.  It was white cake with buttercream icing.  It is airbrushed with gold pearl shimmer and decorated with buttercream swirls and edible pearls.  The customer had a pretty gold topper to put on.  A very pretty and special cake.

Lofthouse Soft Sugar Cookies

I have searched for a great copycat recipe for those great soft cake-like cookies you find at Walmart called Lofthouse cookies.  These, I think, are so much better than those!  They have a lot more flavor and better texture.  Soft, buttery and sweet with awesome buttercream icing and sprinkles.  You will want to order dozens of these!

Spongebob Cake

Spongebob Square Pants!  His mother just had a little baby girl, and she wanted a special cake made just for him.  

Dora the Explorer Flower and Butterfly Cake

I love this cake.  It is so girly and pretty.  I just made the tops of the tiers to look like big pink flowers to match the butterfly Dora cake topper.  This was marble cake too.

One Direction Cake

This cake is for the sister of the puppy cake.  They had their party together and she loves One Direction.  I cut out their logo and added stripes, polka dots, and stars.  It has a banner with the group's names on it.  It was marble cake as well.

I made this cake for our Cousin's daughter.  She loves puppies, so it has cute purple polka dot puppies and hearts on  top.  It was marble cake inside.

I just wanted to share the beautiful flowers my husband sent me on our 9th anniversary this year.  He is so sweet and thoughtful; I cried just a little ; )

I made this Toy Story themed cake for a lady at work.  Her little boy was turning 1 and loves Toy Story.  She had her own toys to put on top.  I also made her a smash cake to match.  This has chocolate cow print on top, and a chocolate fence around the bottom.   It was yellow cake inside.

25th Birthday Cake with Stars

This is a great cake for a guy.  Not too frilly.  Can be done for a girl as well.  Simple sheet cake.  I think this one was chocolate cake.

I LOVE these cupcakes.  I made a fondant tiki mask, pineapples, and tropical flowers and displayed them to look like a Hawaiian lei.  They are yellow cupcakes with buttercream icing.

I made these cupcakes for a retirement party we had at work for a fellow employee.  White cake with vanilla buttercream, and chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream.  YUM!

Pink and White Polka Dots, Cupcakes, and Bows Cake

This cake is like the green, yellow, and orange one....just PINK!  It features a large cupcake shaped tier on top that can be easily removed for the little one to SMASH!  This cake was white cake for the bottom tier, dark chocolate for the middle tier, and white cake for the cupcake on top.

Stripes, Dots, and a Cupcake on Top

I made this one for a 1st birthday cake.  The cupcake on top is removeable for the birthday boy (or girl) to play with.  The customer put her own candle on top of the cupcake for the child to blow out, then SMASH!  It is butter cake with buttercream and fondant decorations.  I'm not crazy about how the colors turned out, especially how they look in the picture.  The customer had a t-shirt she wanted me to try to match, and it had these colors in it.  It did look better in person, but I think I would do the colors a little different if I could do it all over again, but still it was a cute cake.

Go Diego Go! Birthday Cake

For some reason, I could not get a really good, clear picture of this one.  It is a 2-tier topsy turvy cake with a flowing stream, palm trees, monkeys, and Diego!  It is funfetti cake with buttercream and fondant decorations.

Milk chocolate cake with rich chocolate buttercream icing, airbrushed black, with a very loving message on top!

Pink Flowers Birthday Cake

A pretty pink flower birthday cake with freshly made strawberry filling, white velvet cake, and citrus buttercream.  YUMMMM!

Poker Table Cake

I did this cake for a co-worker's daughter's sweet 16 party.  They had it at San Miguel's coffee shop on the square in Winchester.  They decorated with all sorts of cute poker themed decorations, and had poker tables set up to play games.  I made poker chip mints to go along with the cake, but forgot to get a picture.  (Seems like this is an ongoing theme to my posts!)  The cake was marble with buttercream icing and marshmallow fondant decorations. 

Blue Baby Shower Cake

My cousin-in-law and I gave our other cousin a baby shower this past summer.  We did it in blues and white, with cheescake brownies, lemon and almond cookies, fancy shmancy chips and spinach dip, fruit tray with dip, pinwheels, and fruited tea....oh and CAKE!!!  I love the spider mums and the bows on the trays.  The tea was a nice change to traditional punch which is sometimes sooooo sweet.  It was refreshing since it was so hot outside (and inside too!).   The cake was white velvet with citrus buttercream decorated with a big fondant bow on top.   I made a really pretty diaper cake, but unfortunately I did not get a picture of it!!  Oh well, maybe next time.
