A Blue Butterfly for Betsy

5 Sep

Blue Butterfly

When I was asked to do this birthday cake I didn’t know how I would decorate it, then I got a request from the birthday lady herself. She wanted a blue butterfly on her cake. Earlier she had seen a blue butterfly in her garden and it reminded her of someone near and dear to her that loved butterflies. So I piped her a blue butterfly. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BETSY !!!

Cake flavor, yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream.

Back to School Cake

Back to School

It’s that time again “Back to School”.

This cake was for one of my favorite long time customers Rev.Dixon. When he needs a cake for a special occasion he always comes to me. This was for a church function today to celebrate the beginning of a new school year. The cake flavor, a classic yellow butter cake iced in vanilla butter cream. Some of the decoration I hand molded from fondant, (even the pencils) others are piped on using butter cream frosting. He was pleased and surprised that everything was edible.

Cakes for Different Occasions

10 Jul

My week (July 6-10th) was a pretty busy week, starting with a cake for a little girls 9th birthday, she wanted something with a horse. The sheet cakes (red velvet with cream cheese frosting) were for a celebration, last Chemo treatment and a “thank you” for her nurses and doctors. The last 2 were for ladies celebrating their special day. Their flavors were the classic yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream.
