Princess 6th Birthday

This cake is vanilla with chocolate ganache/fudge filling. It is covered in buttercream-yum! The wand is a candy stick with a gum paste star on top. The crown is gum paste as well. Perfect for a 6 year-old girl!!
I spoke with the party-goers afterward (including Peekaboo!) and it was delicious too!

Topsy Turvy Madhatter 30th Birthday

This cake was for a gentleman's 30th birthday. This was my first attempt at a "Topsy Turvy" cake....I ended up redoing it-more difficult that you might think! I was fairly happy with the final product.
This is a vanillla cake with butttercream filling. The whole thing is fondant-covered. Details are fondant and the balloons are gum paste.

Graduation cake

This is a French Vanilla cake with Chocolate ganache filling. The topmost tier (hat) has fresh strawberries and strawberry buttercream as the filling. This cake is entirely edible! The mortarboard, the 'diploma', all the details! It was really fun to make! It may be one of my favourites!

Peekaboo's 2nd 5th Birthday cake!

Yep, I saved the unicorns....Wouldn't you!!??!

This was a yellow butter cake, with a white chocolate/cream cheese buttercream filling! Yum!! The decorations (pink icing) are vanilla frosting. It was tasty, though I found the butter cake a bit dry (new recipe)

Peekaboo's first 5th Birthday cake!!

This special request was "a mommy unicorn and a baby unicorn sitting in a field of flowers". It is a rainbow swirl cake with buttercream strawberry filling, covered in MM fondant. The flowers are fondant and the unicorns are a fondant/gum paste combo (adding fondant to the gum paste makes it easier to work with, and it doesn't harden quite as quickly)
This is the cake for her birthday party. We will be having a second cake for her actual birthday, next week, so stay tuned!!
