2 cakes – One Christening

29 May

   To celebrate Aaron’s christening I made 2 flavors of cake. A yellow butter cake with vanilla frosting and a chocolate cake with fudge  frosting. Both cakes had a cross made of white chocolate and blue and white  fondant flowers. The tiny blue hearts were also cut from fondant.



90th Birthday

Flavor for this 90th is a favorite of many people, a simple yellow butter cake with vanilla frosting. The pink roses are buttercream , the others are fondant.

 I had the pleasure of making this baptism cake this weekend  for a beautiful baby girl named Tully (pronounced 2-lee). Flavors were yellow butter cake with vanilla buttercream. All the pink and white flowers and butterfly were made of  fondant.

Yellow Roses for Barbara

Bright as sunshine, yellow roses are a favorite of mine. The roses are buttercream, the tiny ones are fondant.

Butterfly Pull-Apart Cake

1 May

This has got to be one of the easiest cakes I’ve ever done. Made with  cupcakes. Some people call them cupcake cakes or pull-apart cakes. Whatever you want to call it, it was fun. The customer was desperate for a cake and I didn’t have time to bake one, all I had were a few leftover cupcakes and flowers from another order. She said “I’ll take them”, so instead of doing them as individual cupcakes I pushed them together to create a small sheet cake. The butterfly was an edible image.

Celebrating 60 Years

1 May

This cake was made for a couple celebrating 60 years of marriage at the Members Club in Pinehurst, NC.  The mixed flowers on top were handmade from buttercream, the 60 was fondant brushed with a little edible gold dust, the bow was satin ribbon. The sheet cake frosted in vanilla buttercream was a 12×18 topped with a 8″ round.
