Tiffany Jo's 1st Birthday

This was my favorite cake to do, to date. It was a huge cake! Each tier was 3 layers. The bottom was chocolate cake with peanut butter cream cheese filling (yum!) and the middle and top tiers are lemon cake with buttercream filling. All the decorations were made with fondant and everything was edible. Even the little girl. Loved this cake!

Tiffany Jo's 1st Birthday

And of course, we can't forget Tiffany's little smash cake. It was white cake with buttercream filling and icing and it was ALL OVER HER!

White and Peach tiered cake

This is a four tier all fondant cake. The flowers are made out of gumpaste. All the line work, leaves and borders are royal icing.

Hawaiian Birthday Cake

This cake was made for a little girls birthday party. The theme was hawaiian. The little girl was going to be wearing a grass skirt and coconut top so I designed the cake to look like her outfit. I love the idea of this cake but I would have liked to have added another tier in the center. It would have made it look more like a "body". All the flowers, grass skirt and coconut bra were all made out of gumpaste. The cake is chocolate and yellow.

Mini Bride and Groom cakes

I'm so excited about these cakes! I couldn't wait to get them done. These are mini cakes. The bottom tiers are 4 inches and the top tiers are 3 inches. They are completely made with fondant. The skirt on the brides cake is dusted with pearl dust and the bow and top trim are painted with pearl dust. The grooms cake is made with two shades of chocolate fondant. These cakes can easily be made as full size cakes. These cakes will be on display at Decor Party Supply in La Habra. I'll be teaching how to make them in two-2 hour sessions. Check in with Decor for upcoming classes.

Tiffany Jo's cupcakes

These simple little cupcakes were made for my friends' baby girl's dedication to God. They are white cupcakes with white buttercream icing. I added 3 shades/sizes of pink fondant flowers.
It was such a touching and beautiful ceremony. Their home was, and always is, so filled with love. I am very lucky to call them my friends. I can't wait to make Tiffany Jo's 1st birthday cake!

In an earlier post, I showed two cakes that I had donated to St. Jude hospital for a Cancer Survivor event. The cakes, along with many others, were raffled off. These are photos of the survivors with their cakes. Several of my past and present students donated cakes for this event and I thank you very much. Chef Will (head chef at St. Jude Medical Center), who organized the event, said it turned out great! For those of you that donated cakes, Chef Will is going to be hitting you up next year, so watch your emails!

Swiss Dots and Fresh Flowers

These were done for a wedding. The bride requested 5 cakes (14,12,10,8 and 6 inch rounds) with a simple bead border and swiss dots. The florest then added the fresh flowers on top of each cake. The topper on the small cake was provided by the bride. The small cake is the one the bride and groom will cut and eat. Two cakes are chocolate with fresh strawberry filling (including the bride and grooms cake) , two are Lemon with fresh raspberry filling, and one is White with chocolate mousse filling.
Congratulations Adam and Stephanie!

Chocolate wrapped cake

Super fun cakes to make! This is a 6" chocolate cake with a mint cream cheese filling. I used melted chocolate (2 different colors) and wrapped the cake with it. Such a treat to eat a delicious, moist cake and then have a little chocolate crunch. Yummy!

There are so many different things you can do with this technique. This is a cake I teach in the intermediate class at Decor Party supply.

Watch for more of these during the holidays!

Strawberry Lady finger cake

This is a very light and summery cake. I made this for one of my best friends on her birthday. I used three 10 inch round white cakes. The cake is filled with fresh strawberries and bavarian cream. But to lighten up the filling, I mixed the bavarian cream with some whipped topping. The cake is then iced with whipped icing. And lady fingers around the outside. I made chocolate dipped strawberries for garnish on the top along with red chocolate pieces I had made and broke up.

Beach Sandals

These are one of my favorites! A pair of sandals! I used two 1/2 sheet cakes stacked, then cut in half. I carved out the shape for each and covered them in fondant. The straps are made with gumpaste and were made a couple days before to dry. The flowers, and shells are made with fondant. The piping I made with the clay gun. The "labels" on the shoes are happy birthday plaques. One for each of the two birthday girls.

Dad's 80th birthday cake

Easy cake to make. I cut one side and with that, I made the sleeve for the other side. Iced it white buttercream then added a fondant collar and trim. I airbrushed it all blue. All the detail is fondant and buttercream.

Ed Hardy purse cake

I have more hours in this cake than any others, to date. 16 + hours. I used 4 - 1/2 sheet cakes (chocolate with choclate mousse filling) and stacked them, then carved the shape and covered with fondant . All the detail work is done with gumpaste. Everything on the cake I painted by hand except for the skull.


Superbowl helmet! So much fun to make! I used 5 10 inch round cakes and stacked them, then carved the shape. I covered the whole thing with white fondant, then airbrushed the black side. I used edible images for the logos. The face guard and chin strap are all made with gumpaste. I was a little dissapointed that the gray fondant in the middle began to sag during the day. I'm thinking I didn't have enough water behind it and so it didn't attach well. Live and learn!


Two layer cake. Iced with buttercream. The bottom layer is Chocolate cake with Perisian cream filling. The top layer is White cake with strawberry filling. Spidy is made out of melted chocolate. This cake was put together on a special cake stand and pillar. It was very heavy and not easy to transport. The tears and back are made out of fondant.

Baby Airprot

This was a baby shower cake for a friend of mine . I asked her if she wanted something more traditional or "different"? She chose "different". So, since her and her husband are the fun, active type, I decided on this design. I made all of the storks out of royal icing. The little airport building is a pound cake covered with buttercream and decorated with buttercream. The top of the sheet cake is fondant.
