Making fun cakes for everyone.

Wedding Shower Cupcakes October 27, 2012

During the summer by baby cousin, Jimmy married an amazing girl, Krista. I was honored to have been asked to make both their bridal shower cupcakes and their wedding cake. Their wedding colors were Hot Pink and Carolina Blue. I used blue melting candy to make the heart shaped cake toppers and alternated hearts and “L”s. It’s probably obvious the couples last name starts with a “L”.

Pinterest is addictive… Seriously… I rarely use Google or any other search engine when I am looking for something to make. I even have multiple recipe Apps that I forget about because I am always pinning new recipes. I found a cake like this one on pinterest right before my niece’s 9th birthday, which is 5 days before Valentines; which is why I made it valentine themed. This cake is SUPER easy, very fun and the kids LOVED it!

I made this cake for my niece’s 5th birthday. It was, obviously, a princess theme. This cake was super easy and way fun!


Toad and Toadette

My daughter, much liker her video-game-loving father, loves Mario and everything that goes with him. Her favorite characters are Toad and Toadette. I made this cake for her 6th birthday party. I had many, many ideas  for her cake, but she decided she wanted to design it. This is what she chose, colors, characters, the whole design/idea process was hers.

She insisted on a Toadette Costume to wear for her party, My mom made the dress and I made the hat. She was thrilled!

This construction themed cake I made for my son’s first birthday party. It was SO fun to make a cake for a boy. My family is mostly girls. I have two sisters, two nieces and a daughter… Then my son came along. Around 6 months old he fell in love with a toy dump truck, which is where my theme idea came from. The party was very fun and easy to plan. I even made Construction cone party hats.


Here is the “spread” for the party. I put all the snacks in little dump trucks.

I made this cake for my video game loving nephew, Jack. He definitely takes after his uncles love of video games. He is currently obsessed with my husbands favorite game, much to his delight! I LOVE this cake! It was my second attempt at a Mario cake, this first was not good!

This cake I made for my friend and co-worker who was pregnant at the same time as me. Her little girl was born just a couple weeks before my son.
