Fireman/Firefighter cake


Wedding Cupcake Tower - Purple


This was 12 dozen cupcakes. The top cake has edible, gumpaste floral bouquet on top. The cupcake flavors chosen for this tower were dark chocolate cake with fudgy icing, carrot cake with cream cheese icing and Southern red velvet cake with cream cheese icing. I had to get on a chair and stand up in order to place the cake on. This was a very tall display, but very impressive.

Giraffe/Jungle/Safari Theme cake and cupcakes


**I really hate these dang point and shoot cameras! I forgot my nice camera. **
This was 2 dozen cupcakes....15 cupcakes had edible jungle animals on them: elephant, giraffe, monkey and zebra. The cake is a buttercream cake with fondant accents. The zebra and monkey on top are edible figurines. Currently, they are $20 each.

On another note, if you all haven't checked out the new bounce place in town, Safari Nation, you have to go! It's $10 for each child over 2, parents are free. There's so much to do! The staff is really nice and I like there are staff members at each station and they truly monitor the children and if anyone is upset, crying, etc. they find out what's wrong.

Pretty as a bow cake


6" chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream and covered in fondant
3 dozen cupcakes

Nostalgic Gumball Machine Cake


This was a first for me! What fun though! This was requested by one of my most loyal, repeat customers. Thanks Heather! She always pushes me to do new, fun stuff! The "glass" was a new, plastic, fish bowl from a local pet store (washed very well of course). The base of the machine was all cake made from 2-8" and 2-6" cakes in strawberry flavor. It was a scary drive to delivery as I had to hold the cake still while my husband drove 30 minutes away. It made it fine and the client was happy. There were 1 dozen cupcakes also, adorned with a mini white gumball on top. The wrappers were purchased from Etsy.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Cake and Cupcakes


The figurines were purchased and were not edible.

My daughter's sweet shabby chic 2 tier birthday cake

Square wedding cake and 7 dozen cupcakes


This is a 6" square cake with 3 layers. I had several different plans for this cake, but this was the final choice. I found this "bling" band by the spool and it's not cheap, but pretty! I made 3 dozen roses, all dusted with petal dusts and steamed. I also made for each rose, 2 leaves that I also airbrushed silver. This turned out to be one of my favorite designs. The bride also surprised the groom with a baseball cake. Nice!

Fairies and Unicorns


From another wonderful, loyal customer. A fairy to resemble her daughter. Such a magical cake! My little girls loved this one!

Purple wedding cake and cupcake tower


This was a wonderful customer who was so great to work with. There were approximately 85 cupcakes on this tower. I made the cake a little taller in height. I found these cute little tiered wedding cake placecard holders at Hobby Lobby that were perfect for the flavor labels. I did strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese icing, orange cake with cream cheese icing and lemon cake with buttercream. Very yummy!

Hollywood theme 8-year-old Bday Party


This was a very sweet customer who was throwing an , oh so sweet, 8 year bday party for her son. She went all out with a red carpet entrance, paparazzi, etc. I did a red carpet experience cake design with flashing lights along the back and solid lights on the front as spotlights of the movie reel with pics of Ryaire's life thus far. So fun!

For the sweetest Princess Tiana ever!


Thanks Whitley for all your support and loyalty.

A fun animal cake




This was for a friend's birthday that helps out my husband. It was a chocolate cake, filled with chocolate ganache, then iced in a thin layer of chocolate buttercream, then covered in chocolate ganache and then wrapped in white chocolate candy, topped with white chocolate-covered strawberries. This wrapping was a new technique I tried for the first time and it was a pain, which is why the air bubbles you see are there! I will try again!

Red/White Polkadot Wedding Cake with Roses


This was for a very whimsical bride. She wanted something a little different and unique. You can't see the bride on the cake topper, but she has black and white polkadot galoshes on. So cute!
There were 6 dozen cupcakes, half of which had edible red roses on the tops. The floral bouquet on top of the cake is also made from gumpaste. The cake was red velvet with cream cheese filling and butercream icing. This was made for my boss's son's wedding.

Old cake.....


I forgot to post this forever ago! With the Playoffs on right now on our tv, it reminded me! This was a peanut butter silk cake. LOL!

My brothers' graduation party cupcakes


I got to decide on the flavors and it was so fun doing some unique flavors that many people don't get an opportunity to taste. There were approximately 80 cupcakes. The party was a luau themed party. I chose these flavors:

French toast cupcakes with maple syrup buttercream and a a piece of crisp bacon for that salty taste to balance the sweetness
White cake with strawberry jam filling and cream cheese icing
Old-fashioned butter pecan cupcakes with buttercream and fresh pecans for garnish
Chocolate cupcakes with crunchy peanut butter buttercream and a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup to garnish
Margarita lime cupcakes with a mild lime buttercream


One guess which flavor was gone and eaten first? Yep, the French toast cupcakes!

Congrats to the Class of 2011! I am so proud of you Adam and Jacob! I love you!

Shabby Chic 2 tier cake


This was a fun one to do! This cake was being taken to The Great Wolf Lodge in Concord, NC for a Bday party for a 12-year-old girl. This order included 1 dozen cupcakes that were showcased in these beautiful cupcake wrappers. They really do dress up the cupcakes!
The "R" monogram on top is edible and was made with fondant/tylose and has edible pearls embedded in the letter also.

Graduation time!


Lingerie Gift Box Cake


This cake feeds approximately 40 servings. The lid is made from styrofoam that I covered with chocolate fondant. Everything else is edible.
