Fondant Covered Cookies

I usually stick to my specialty of custom cakes and cupcakes, but on occasion, I have dabbled in making some fondant covered sugar cookies.  These cookies are usually for a selection at a Sweet Table or a takeaway gift.

Monster High Cakes

I first created a Monster High cake in 2012, but it looks like they are still very popular.  This lucky 7 year old had 2 dolls to keep, Lagoona Blue and Clawdeen Wolf.  Their dresses were made out of cake and sugarpaste.
The cakes were chocolate sour cream with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream.

Cinderella Cake

For this lovely little girl, the past few years' cakes were: My Little Pony, Bubble Guppies and Hot Pink.  This year was Cinderella and I had so much fun making this lovely carriage.
There is something so magical about pink and gold!  This cake was layers of vanilla bean cake with strawberry buttercream.

7th Birthday: Lego Cake

It has been a while since I've done a Lego themed cake and I love the classic lego myself!  This was cake #2 for my nephews birthday for his lego party with his school friends.
Here are some different angles of the cakes.  The cakes were chocolate velvet with chocolate swiss meringue buttercream.

Hero 6 Baymax Cake

It's that time of year again, when my nephew's birthday rolls around.  This year's theme was a toss up between the movie Hero 6, Lego and Minecraft. Well I'm glad it wasn't Minecraft... :-)

My nephew had 2 celebrations this year, so I made him a Baymax cake for our family celebration and a Lego cake for his school friend party. I will post that one next week.
And here is a review of all his past birthdays!

2nd Birthday Cake: Hello Kitty Cake

I love when I have the freedom to design cakes.  I have many regular clients that I work with year after year and they will give me a theme and trust my design style.  A few years back, it started with this baby shower cake and then Lola's 1st birthday cake.

This year, the birthday girl turned 2 and wanted Hello Kitty!  I wanted to experiment with some edible ink painting and I loved it!

70th Birthday: Luggage Cake

Many years back, I made a fun Safari-themed retirement cake and this time around, the couple celebrated their 70th birthdays.  They have pretty much traveled everywhere,  so a luggage cake was definitely appropriate.
