A Harry Potter Birthday Cake

10 Jul

This is my first attempt at a Harry Potter design cake. There were so many items that I wanted to use on top but on a 9″ cake I only had a certain amount of space to work with. The cake is chocolate, iced in vanilla butter cream with fondant books, owl and scarf.

Cupcake party for Janie

3 Dec

This year the theme for Janie’s 3rd birthday was a cupcake party. I decided to pipe cupcakes on the side of her cake, with each one topped with tiny fondant flowers in the party colors, purple, yellow, pink with the writing in green. Along with the cake were 24 cupcakes with a swirl of vanilla buttercream also topped with more fondant flowers. Cake flavors were yellow butter cake with vanilla buttercream.3rd birthday JanieCupcakes for Janie

 

A Blue Butterfly for Betsy

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.

A White Daisy Birthday Cake

24 Apr

Daisy Birthday Cake                I make a lot of sheet cakes and sometimes it’s a struggle to come up with designs for all of them. I try not to repeat myself to many times. Sometimes the customer tells me exactly what they want, other times it’s up to me. The cake flavor here is a classic yellow butter cake (11 x 15) with peach colored vanilla butter cream. The white daisies are fondant.

Birthday Cake for John

This was a fun cake to do. Making the horse head was easier than I expected. It was almost like doing a BC transfer only in reverse. I found a picture that I liked put wax paper over it and piped with butter cream frosting. Then I stuck it in the freezer over night to harden. After I iced the cake I slid it onto the cake while it was still frozen. Easy…Cake flavor was yellow butter cake, raspberry filling with almond butter cream frosting. The flowers were fondant.
