Just a sample of the 30 cupcakes made for a baby shower. They were all one flavor, classic yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream frosting. They had different frosting designs, rattlers, booties & flowers in soft pastel colors.
It was a bit unusual to have a wedding cake on a Thursday they are almost always on the weekend but it was a a very small reception. I sometimes think the smaller ones come out better, I guess because I don’t seem to stress over them as much as I do the really BIG ones. The bride asked me to place the flowers on so I did. I don’t get to do that very often. Most times it’s the florist job but I love doing flowers too. The 6″ & 10″ square cake flavors were classic yellow butter with raspberry butter cream filling and vanilla/almond frosting. The stripe and dot design is one I’ve done many times but I like the way it always turns out.
Seems I’m having a lot of “first” lately and this is another one. A wedding cake with a Pez bride & groom for a topper. The bride and groom are Pez collectors. Alto these are not “real” pez containers, when they found them they knew that’s what they wanted on their wedding cake. The silly faces bring lots of smiles.
Flavors for the wedding cake were, marble swirl with raspberry butter cream filling and vanilla butter cream frosting. Each tier was surrounded with burgundy ribbon and a leaf/vine and wave pattern. The fresh fall flowers were provided by the florist.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen bride and groom bears until now aren’t they cute. They were going to be used as the wedding cake topper but the couple decided to put them on a small chocolate cake to the side. The base is a wooden disk cut from an oak tree, this seemed more appropriate for the bears.
The Wedding Cake, a yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream had a vine and leaf design. The fresh flowers had such rich colors, perfect for a fall wedding.

I have done so many Halloween birthday cakes for Joe I am at a lost for new ideas. Each year I try to do a different design not only for him but for myself as well since it’s the decorating I really enjoy and not the baking. The cake is always the same, yellow butter cake with raspberry butter cream filling and almond butter cream frosting. I thought the ghost & pumpkin borders were cute but the guy in the middle I’m not so sure of.
