FABULOUS!!!! I was given a hearts theme and a color scheme for this cake and was given the opportunity to come up with something fabulous. I had seen this technique but had never tried it. It's pretty simple, but is very different and elegant. Her mommy was thrilled and I loved the turnout!!
I was asked for the first time to cater a special event. Not only did I end up catering with lunch, I also decorated and baked for it. This little 2 year old had a wonderful day to say the least! She is well loved :) On the Menu: Cucumber tea sandwiches PBJ for the kiddos Chicken salad sandich on crossaint with pecans and grades Ham and Cheese Roasted Bell pepper and goat cheese on foccassia and of course lots of fruit and veggies :)
A friend is working very hard to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I knew I'd be able to help a little so we decided to sell cake pop bouquets as a fund raiser during the Valentine's Day holiday. Last year, I raised about $260...... This year our total was over $770!!!!!! My clients, friends and family members are all amazing. We really showed cancer who's boss!!
My lovely friend Lisa asked me to make a Classic Pooh bear cake for her sister's baby shower. Her is expecting a little princess after many health issues and her family could not be more thrilled for the arrival. This cake was driven all the way to the San Jose area. I was so excited to be a small part of her celebration!!
This was a special cake because I tried something new with the letters. I printed the font that I wanted and cut each letter out. Then, with my very sharp knife cut out each letter in the edible fondant. I also had lots of fun with my airbrush on this cake. Shading and using different colors really makes this cake look like a comic book!
Of all the years I have been baking and creating custom cakes, this is the first request for a Tweety Cake!! This was a small cake for a mom ordering just for herself.....because she deserved it!! I surprised her with matching cake pops to enjoy and hide from her kids!!! ;)
