Lemon Gardenia Cupcakes

These cupcakes were decadent - lemon cupcakes filled with homemade lemon curd, topped with lemon buttercream and a gumpaste gardenia!

Where the Wild Things Are Birthday Cake

This cake was decorated to match the party invitation, which (I believe) was a take on Where the Wild Things Are (the birthday boy picked the invite). The cake was vanilla with fudge frosting.

I made these cakes for my friend's little girl's first birthday. They were decorated to match the plates she had bought for the party. The large cake was vanilla cake with lemon curd filling and buttercream icing. The smash cake was vanilla cake with buttercream icing.

This cake was for a young man who graduated high school this year, then traveled to Saudi Arabia to visit his uncle, then to Rome to sight see for a few days. The cake was red velvet with cream cheese icing.

This was a birthday cake for a 5-year-old boy. On the back side of the cake were palm trees and the number 5 (didn't get a good picture of that). The dinosaurs are all made of rice krispie treats and fondant. The cake was chocolate with vanilla buttercream.

Farm/Garden Cake

My brother-in-law requested this cake for my sister-in-law's birthday.  He wanted a farm cake with chickens, a goat, and dogs (border collies specifically). Everything is edible: fudge sticks for railroad ties, pretzels for the fence, vanilla wafers for the stepping stones, crushed graham crackers for the path, and crushed chocolate teddy grahams for the dirt in the beds. All other decorations are fondant and gum paste. Vines and flowers are buttercream. The cake is dark chocolate mayonnaise cake with vanilla buttercream.
