4 layer Red and Coral wedding

This cake is from several years ago, but I still love it. The flowers were all huge-- Calla lillies, Roses and Gerbera daisies-- so in order to use them I wired them together in drapes and let them cascade down the sides of the cake. It turned out so gorgeous, and you would never know that the bottom two layers are actually cake forms- only the top two were real cake, which turned out to be just the right amount at this upscale reception that already had lots of delicious refreshments.

Orange and hot pink wedding

This bride loves bright colors, and I think that she got the mix just right. The brown ribbon and green berries give these flowers just the perfect touch to keep the palette from being too bright, while still incorporating some gorgeous pink daisies and orange roses. I loved the groups of three dots that she wanted all over the cake, and chocolate cake with raspberry filling is one of my favorite combos.

Owl Birthday

I got this idea for an owl cupcake-cake out of a family fun magazine. Loved it for my daughter's first birthday! I also thought the little owlets were adorable!

Princess Cupcakes

Loved these fondant crowns on key lime cupcakes! We took them up to Downata Hot Springs in Idaho to celebrate my daughter's 5th birthday at a family reunion and they were a big hit!

Ivory, White, and Red Wedding

This is my sister's wedding cake, which she wanted to coordinate with her elaborate, ivory wedding dress. I thought that the criss-cross zig-zag lines added such a fun and elegant touch, and it looked breath-taking in my parent's back-yard at the reception.

Gorgeous Cream and Coral Wedding

I LOVED how this turned out! This bride wanted cream colored fondant on round cakes, and she was very insistent that it be homemade carrot cake with cream cheese filling inside. This turned out to be one of my most delicious and beautiful cakes- I love the elegant simplicity, and I always love using pearls as a border. Plus she gave me sooo many roses to decorate with that I was able to lift the cake and put a border of them all the way around the bottom. I love, love, love it!

Mini cake and Cupcakes

I made this mini cake for a cake walk at our church. The top layer is only 3" diameter, and the bottom is 6". The whole thing is about 8" tall and is absolutely adorable! The girl who won it was totally ecstatic. :) This would make such a cute birthday cake. :)
These are my favorite cupcakes ever! They are cookies n' cream-- vanilla cake studded with oreo chunks, half an oreo on the bottom and a big oreo stuck into the whipped cream cheese frosting!

Strawberry Soaked Birthday Cake

 One of my most popular cakes around home is Strawberry-Soaked birthday cake. It is not fancy, but my family has seen enough wedding cakes, and they really just want something unbelievably decadent and delicious-- and this is it. It has to stay in the pan (since it is soaked in strawberry sauce and features a very creamy frosting), so I have to find more creative ways to decorate....
My friend Nichole loves my Strawberry-Soaked birthday cake, and she wanted it for her son Tripp's 2nd birthday. It is vanilla cake that is soaked in strawberry sauce, and then frosted with a whipped vanilla pudding mixture, so this is what we did with it. This is fruit leather that is cute into the shape of a tractor. The leather sort of melts into a yummy gel that keeps its shape on top of the cake. Delicious and cute!

Halloween Cake

I made this fun cake for a Halloween craft fair a lady in my neighborhood held. It was a lot of fun to make, especially the big, fat spider on the side!

Wolverine Birthday cake

 A very cute and excited 6 year old got this sweet birthday cake! This is a Chocolate cake with a whipped peanut butter filling and chunks of Reese's peanut butter cups. It turned out delicious, and the wolverine image was a lot of trouble to make, but turned out so amazing. Plus, I loved the 3-D claws!

Bright colors wedding cake

White Fondant with small groups of dots! This turned out so cute with the bright colors, and it was delicious too-- Vanilla cake with raspberry filling!

Fall Wedding

This was such a fun cake to make- 3 square layers, offset by 90 degrees. The top layer was cookies n' cream cake, and the middle is red velvet with cream cheese filling.
