Need ideas??

Check out my new blog page "Design Ideas" (linked under the blog header)!!

I'm constantly coming across cute cake pics - some I search endlessly for, some are magazine clippings from doc offices, and sometimes I get them from virtual strangers who know I'm in the cake business.

This new page is a collection of a few of these "ideas" that I hold onto because they're cute, unique, clever, or just something that I want to do one day.

So - take a look - and let me know if you're ever in the market for the chicken cake. The girls and I think it's HYSTERICAL!

Moving... {Stacked Moving Boxes Cake}



Our friend Nikki moved into her own place this month - and she's having a party to celebrate!! The best part about these moving boxes is they are MUCH more fun to unpack :) Congratulations, Nikki!!

A plug...

I have lots of talented friends... Sarah is one of them. She was sweet enough to spend some time helping me create the logo that appears on my blog, on my cards, and on my cake boxes :) She's been doing custom graphic design for a long time, and has just assembled a site with some samples of her work.

If you're in the market for stationary, labels, logos, stamps, business cards - you name it she can do it! Click on over to her new blog and check it out!!

Berry Good {Strawberry Shortcake Cake}

She's small, she's sweet, she's cute and she LOVES strawberries... who's that you may ask??


My little Hannah of course!! A sweet Strawberry Shortcake design for my sweetie on her 4th birthday! (Oh my where has the time gone?)

This cake is all edible with the exception of the doll (thank you to McD's for having Strawberry Shortcake Happy Meals a few years ago!)

New Flavors!!

Just pulled some delicious samples out of the oven and am happy to say I have two new flavor offerings to officially add to my basics (vanilla, chocolate, almond):

Chocolate Chip (vanilla cake with mini chocolate chips) and
Peanut Butter Cup (chocolate cake with peanut butter chips) - YUM!!

Leah has declared Chocolate Chip as her new favorite! I have a few more flavor combos in the works (lemon, chocolate mint and maybe a carrot cake) so stay tuned!!
