Princess in Paris

Shereen contacted me from an online ad and wanted a specific cake for her little one's 1st birthday. This was a very girly and classy cake and I loved the way it turned out. My favorite part of my "job" is seeing reactions from family members when the cake is delivered. Super sweet <3

Squish the Spider!!

What is better way to celebrate a little boy's 5th birthday than a huge spider cake??? Super fun to make and I love when clients give me a challenge!

Mad Hatter Cake

I have NEVER been asked to do a three tiered mad hatter cake, so of course I did some studying on youtube before taking on this challenge. Although this was a relatively small cake, mad matter cakes take a lot of time to construct. I loved every minute of the nail biting experience and I LOVED the way it turned out :)

Lacy Wedding

This was one of the BIGGEST cakes that I have made in a while :) It was an 8, 12 and 16" three tiered cake that probably weighed a good 50 pounds! I recruited my mom to help me deliver and help me get it to the table. Brooke's wedding was at a local winery not too far away from my house. I loved the touches of vintage charm that she added to the decor. She asked for a very simple ivory cake with lace accents on the center tier. Her soon-to-be brother in law (who is in high school) made the adorable topper for them. I thought it was JUST what the cake needed. I hope to get professional pictures soon!

Strawberry Shortcake

Loved making this very simple, but adorable "Strawberry Shortcake" themed birthday cake!

Girly is what she wanted :)

Ashely contacted me and simply wanted a "girly" cake. Her daughter loves pink and purple and she didn't want a specific theme. I ran with the colors and came up with this fun cake. I LOVED her daughters face when she walked into my house!!
Katie and Parris are such a cute couple :) We met u a few months ago and planned a wedding for the end of December here in town. They later decided that they were trying to please everyone and really wanted a smaller, intimate wedding on the coast. The smaller cake was for the two of them to cut and they also chose to order a larger cake to match that was sugar free, because many of their loved ones could not eat a lot of sugar. Cake pops served as favors for their guests and each had a little sea shell charm. I wish them the best in their future! (Professional pictures to come!!)

All "Tangled" Cake

Love this cake...... I love all girly cakes :) I purchased these characters at the Disney Store and I love the fact that the birthday girl can have an awesome cake, and then get to keep the toys when the yummy cake is all gone :) This is a butter cream cake with fondant decorations.

Cowboys Jersey

I love the fact that I have been lucky enough to have many repeat customers. Jasmine is one of those customers. She is so sweet and awesome to call to order a cool cake for her husband. He's a huge Cowboys fan and enjoyed #22 from back in the day :)

Vintage Wedding Cupcake Buffet

I love when brides think outside the box and choose a different option other than a huge cake. Janelle contacted me from an online ad and I was excited to meet up with her. She was having a very lovely, vintage style wedding at The Grove in Sanger. She wanted a cupcake buffet for her 150 guests as well as a small cake for her and her new husband to cut for pictures. It was a lovely evening at a lovely venue! Here are a few snap shots I took. I have seen the professional pictures and should be getting a copy soon!

Old Age

Love it when my clients give me a little freedom to design a cake. Catherine wanted an Old Age themed cake as a funny little gift to her best guy friend. This cake was completely edible with an AARP card, Hair loss cream, and of course the little blue pills :) Thanks for another order Catherine!

Roasted Pig Luau

A couple randomly contacted me saying that their baker wasn't responding to them for their order. They had ordered a roasted pig cake for their father's birthday luau and asked if I could do it for them. I was excited to try something very different from anything I've ever attempted..........but it was FUN!!
