'Tis the Season {Snowman Cupcake}

Cute snowmen -- with hats, scarfs, and earmuffs - all so cute!! Great for a winter birthday!

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things {Favorites Cake)

What better way to celebrate someone's big day, than a cake with ALL of their favorite things... we loaded this design up with all the favs of the birthday girl, and then added a car headed on a road trip to New Orleans (her big surprise birthday present). So fun!

March of the Penguins {Penguin Cupcakes, Pops, and Smash Cake}

Penguins are all the range for winter birthday celebrations -- had a few different orders this December with the cutie pies...
A darling mini-cake, just for Giuliana.

A whole flock of boy and girl penguin cupcakes.

And some absolutely darling penguin cake pops, with some snowflake pops on the side. Love!

Space... The Final Frontier {Space Cake}

I love the moms that come up with fun new ideas for me!

Lola turned 4 in October -- what 4 year old girl doesn't like Hello Kitty!!
Happy Birthday, Lola!!

My Sunshine {Sunshine Theme Cakes}

My kiddos love those games where you find the differences between two pictures... this post could qualify as one of those. Two sunshine cakes in the same month, each is a little different, can you spot the differences??

Well, that was fun.... and EXHAUSTING!! {CC's wedding}

Well, there is always a first time for everything -- this was a major first for me -- catering a friend's wedding with 220 guests last weekend!!! In hindsight, I'm not sure I really realized how much work this would be - but my hubbie and I totally pulled it off with amazing helpers in the kitchen. Would I do it again? Well... maybe... but not for a few months, I'm exhausted!! :)
A view of us setting up the tent, with the ceremony off in the distance...
The menu:
Chips & Peach Mango Salsa, Veggies with Roasted Pepper Veggie Dip

Olive Bar, Savory Puff Pastry Bites, Prosciutto & Goat Cheese Dates

Cucumbers with Hummus, Caprese Skewers with Balsamic Glaze, London Broil Sliders

Cheese & Cracker Tray, Shrimp Cocktail, Fresh Fruit

Spinach Artichoke Dip with Pita Chips, Brie Bites in Phyllo

Well Dressed {Pink & Grey Onesie Cake}

Grey and pink are super trendy right now for girlie nurseries -- through in a dark pink and it makes a great color combo for a cute baby shower cake, complete with monogrammed onesie and a clothesline of baby clothes... cute!

Cartoon Royalty {Tom & Jerry Cake}

I'm always amazed when I get a cake order that is a theme from when I grew up -- some things really have staying power -- like Tom & Jerry!!! This was a fun "cheese" cake for a little boy who LOVES Tom & Jerry!!

Dream Car {1963 Corvette Stingray}

 I'll admit, I know almost nothing about cars... except they get me where I want to go. So, I had to do a little research when I was asked to make a 1963 Corvette groom's cake. Now, I may actually be able to answer a Trivial Pursuit question or two on this classic car... I know all about the logo, and what made this body design unique from the year before (the pointed nose), among a few other details!

 Here's a pic from the side...

And the back, where you can really see the logos and body shape.

My friend Heather ordered this REALLY fun cake for her sis-in-law's big birthday this year.
We designed it together using all of Cheryl's favorite things - a love of travel, cooking, photography, reading, her kitty, and going to concerts...
Love how the whole thing turned out, especially the mini camera... so cute!!

Twisted Wedding {Square Wedding Cake}

Summer is wedding season!! This was one of the more unique wedding cakes for me this summer. The venue had orange accents, so orange was the obvious choice...
I just love how it turned out with the details on each side and the beautiful flowers. I almost enjoy arranging the flowers on the cake as much as decorating it!
The bride and groom chose carrot cake and chocolate peanut butter cake -- ohhh yum!!!


Kiddie Super Hero {Super Hero Cake}

 Noel loves super heroes - but not just one - all of them!!
So we made this super fun super hero cake with all of his ultimate favorites.
Wonder which one Noel will pick to eat??

A Modern Wedding {Modern Flower Vine Wedding Cake}

A traditional wedding cake with a modern twist.
The bottom tier of this cake is double stacked (8 inches of sweet goodness) - very trendy in the world of cake design right now. And some creamy sugar flowers growing up a buttercream vine.
This bride chose almond cake and lemon poppy cake... I think I'd have to have a slice of each!
