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.

"Dirty 30" Over the HIll Birthday Cake

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.
