This cake is for a two-year old boy's birthday. It's a vanilla cake with chocolate mousse filling, buttercream frosting and marshmallow fodant. I carved this one by hand. Scott told me he thinks this is my best cake yet. I really do like it. Stayed up into the wee hours of the night working on this one and and the girl polka dot cake.

A MOPS giveaway cake. A strawberry cake with strawberry preserve filling and vanilla buttercream frosting covered in marshmallow fondant. If you look closely you will see flower impressions in the fondant, thanks to my dear friend Maria who got me these really cool transfer impression sheets. Can't wait to do more!

Because my little cake hobby is turning into a part-time job, I've decided to make a blog with my cakes for all to see. Enjoy looking at them. They are in no particular order, so you can't tell the progression of my cakes over the past year. I'm using this as a way for people to see my cakes without having to sign up on facebook or myspace. May you be inspired to make your own cakes and if not, give me a call or drop me an email. I'd be more than happy to do one for you :-)
A baby boy shower cake. This is a black forest cake, which I have never done before. It's devil's food cake, with layers of cherries, and layers of chocolate cream and a whipped frosting. I heard this was a very yummy cake, but you'd have to pay me to eat it. I don't like cherries. Also earned me a nice speeding ticket trying to deliver this cake, so it cost me quite a bit. Ha ha!
MOPS giveaway cake. Our theme that day was the MOMMY olympics so here's the cake. The cake drove me insane and therefore I call it "the cake that won." It's a chocolate cake with vanilla cream filling and melt-in-your-mouth chocolate frosting.
MOPS giveaway cake for St. Patrick's Day. I don't remember the cake flavor of this one but it is vanilla buttercream frosting. I think it might have been chocolate cake. I did this right after I did the 3 cake weekend so my hubby didn't want me to spend any time on it at all and I didn't. Took maybe an hour and you can tell. My circles are squishy! But I really like the concept I was going for.
This cake was requested off of facebook by one I already did very similar to this one. Also for a first birthday boy. Big cake is a dark chocolate cake with raspberry cream filling and vanilla buttercream fondant and buttercream fondant accents. The smash cake for the boy to enjoy is a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting and fondant accents.
