Millenium Falcon

This cake was made for one of my bff's son. I drove this cake 2.5 hours to the party and it made it!! The cake was surprisingly easier to make than everyone thinks, I swear. I used royal icing to pipe the design onto the cake, and had some fun splattering white food paint onto the blue fondant covered board. Happy Birthday Logie Bear!!

Fancy Cake Trio

These cakes were made for a little girl who turned 1. Her mom found a cake inspiration picture online somewhere and I replicated them, with some color and size changes. The ruffles were so much easier to make than I thought! Also, it uses a TON more fondant than I anticipated. The tiny cake is covered with buttercream and only has fondant in that ribbon that goes around it, because it's her smashcake and her mom didn't want her to have too much sugar, I bet. Very sweet and elegant!

Topsy Turvy Alice in Wonderland

This cake was a blast to make, I love making these topsy turvy cakes, and what better theme than Alice in Wonderland, where everything is topsy turvy anyway? The little fondant balls on those boingy wires adds some more whimsy too, and I love working with extremely bright colors when doing one of these cakes too.

Alice in Wonderland bridal shower

This cake was made for one of my bff's bridal shower. She had an Alice tea party themed shower, and I wanted to make something totally different from the other alice cakes I've made. Something that looked less "birthday for a kid"-ish , so my husband gave me the idea of making a giant mushroom and my imagination kinda wandered after that.

Alice tea party

This cake was for an Alice in Wonderland tea party, that was at one of those fancy little places you go to sit and have tea. I really love the little door and the doorknob, it's my favorite part of this cake!

Alice in Wonderland

This cake was a lot of fun to make, especially since the mom wanted me to use lots of colors and gave me all of the creative freedom I could use. I love customers who do that!! :)

Lucas Airlines

This little guy is the son of one of my oldest friends. Not oldest, like she's old, but I've known her longer than I've known any other of my friends. It's so awesome to keep in touch with someone who has known you since you were two years old. It's even more awesome to see their mom, who remembers you in preschool and stuff. And it's equally as awesome to make a bday cake for their kid/grandkid. Love the simple graphic design of this plane cake, it's so cute!

Angry Birds

Another Angry Birds cake! This game never gets old, I swear!! The birds, blocks and piggies are all made out of rice krispie treats. Now the song is stuck in my head.

80s Party!!

This boombox cake was made for an 80s themed birthday party. It really brought back memories while making it, I totally remember asking Santa for a boom box (ghetto blaster is what we called them) and playing pac man on my uncle's atari system. I totally remember how stuff had that geometric lettering, which is what I used for the birthday message. And the cake couldn't be complete without a mix tape!!

ode to the 60s!!

I made this cake for a couple who have their birthdays close together, and who met in the 60s and fell in love. So sweet! Hand painted tie dye was really fun to do. And the daisies remind me of the daisy chains worn on heads back in the 60s (of what I've seen in pictures and on tv)


This cake was for a fan of James Bond, who also turned 50. The gun was made of rice krispie treats and the design was hand cut fondant. It was a lot of fun to make, I love this design!
