I threw a Christmas themed Halloween party this year (weird, I know). This candied beast was the centerpiece of our traditional Christmas dinner spread.
The cake itself was cherry-flavored with vanilla buttercream. Decorations were done using fondant, modeling chocolate for the bone, and pineapple rings and maraschino cherries for the garnish.
And a bonus picture of me in my Sally costume:
This cake was for a little boy who LOVES his construction toys. The whole party was construction themed. He even had a bulldozer piñata to smash.
The cake is chocolate with vanilla buttercream. It was super moist and chocolatey.
I wanted to practice my buttercream flowers and made two pretty Flower Wreath Cakes.
Both are vanilla with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream.
This one was filled with Sugar Plum jam.
This one was filled with Blueberry jam and Lemon Curd.
I made another flower themed baby shower cake. This time it’s buttercream flowers though!
The cake is pumpkin flavored with cheese-cake filling and white chocolate buttercream.
We did another baby shower at work. This one was for my direct coworker, so I went all out and made a Bouquet of Flowers cake.

For a Romantic Evening
This cake was made for a friend’s “Trashy Romance Novel” themed birthday party. A month before hand she jokingly asked that I put Trump’s face on her cake. And so I had to deliver. To make it a little more thematically appropriate, I also decided to give him fabulous Fabio hair. My only complaint was that I didn’t get him orange enough. Continue reading “Fabio Trump”
My first wedding cake
This was made for my boyfriend’s sister after her cake baker backed out last minute. I had never made a wedding cake before, but thought it would be a lot of fun. The experience making this cake is why I’m still baking cakes today and hope to make more wedding cakes soon.
