Hello Kitty Castle Cake

As a cake designer, I try never to make a cake design twice.  Some designs are harder than others to change up.  I have done a few castle cakes in the past and decided to change this cake up with these wonderful silicon molds that I got from my cake friend Kara from A Cake to Remember in Richmond, VA.
 This cake was for a baby shower for a special lady who loves Hello Kitty.

6th Birthday: Angry Birds Star Wars Cake

It's that time of year when my nephew's birthday rolls around.  I love to see his expression when he sees his cake.  For the first two birthdays, I was able to design whatever I wanted from his favorite things.  Then for his new few birthdays, he would tell me what he wanted.  For the latest birthday, he actually drew me a picture of the Angry Birds Star Wars cake that he wanted.
 That was a fun cake to make, although he did mention that I made a few mistakes on the characters that he drew, ooops!  But he still loved it!  :-)
Here's a review of his past birthdays!  I'm excited to see what his 7th birthday brings.

Transformers Cake

I had a lot of fun with this cake!  My client ordered a 2-tier transformer's theme cake and I surprised her with a full 3D Optimus Prime.  I love surprising people and the birthday boy loved it too!

A New Year's Wish...

Happy New Year to everyone!  As you reflect on 2013, I hope you see more high points that balance out the low points.  I hope you see all the wonderful learnings that balance out the mistakes and unfortune.  I hope you see more smiles on yourself then sadness.  I hope you see more happiness that you brought to others, then no feelings.  I wish you a 2014 that makes up for any of it.
btw - I should mention that the above is inspired by some viral story shared on facebook, but those are my own words.  :-)

Cutest Baby Shower Cake

I couldn't be more excited to share this beautiful baby shower cake design.  I fell in love with every part of it.  
For the cake topper, I was inspired by this etsy print that I had pinned a long time ago as I knew it would be great inspiration for a cake.  I love Pinterest for that!
The mom-to-be loved the cake and she is saving all the handmade sugarpaste decorations for a shadow box to hang in the babies room.  How wonderful!
