I have so many cakes that I need to post , owls and race cars and even a snowflake covered wedding cake. But this Tae kwon do cake is the most recent. My neighbor and her family are some of my best customers. This cake was for Peter, an awesome yellow belt, for his birthday party at the Tae Kwon Do studio he attends. Devil’s food with vanilla buttercream and mm fondant.
I made 25 of these little ninja cuppies. I should have taken pictures of the process but it was midnight and i didn’t think of it til I was done. Would anyone be interested in a little tutorial on how I made them?
Over a year ago I received a phone call from a mother of a bride who was searching for a baker willing to do a sculpted cake, specifically two pairs of cowboy boots. And a wedding cake with a belt buckle. What a fun order! I ‘d tell you what flavors they were, but its been so long I can’t remember.
My first wedding cake wearing a belt buckle, notice the gun toting bride and groom.
I don’t usually post too much personal stuff on this blog but I thought that maybe I should give a few reasons for my nearly year long absence. For a while last fall, life was wild, we went on a trip and came back to a flooded home, my sweet grandma passed away and my mother came to stay for over a month while she and her siblings settled my grandmas estate. But by far the biggest change in our life was that we found out we were excitedly expecting our fourth child. I am not the happiest baby haver, I get pretty sick and had gestational diabetes, so while there were a few cakes in that time, none of them were posted. Hopefully I’ll get to that soon! In the meantime, maybe you’ll forgive me if I post something way cuter than any cake I’ve ever made.
My four sons!
Brand new little guy. He had one serious rash, which thankfully went away after about a week or two.
At about six weeks.
This was a fun one. The bride wanted a very simple wedding cake and placed her order. Then a few days later she called with the request of an old school Nintendo Gaming system. My family had one of these bad boys and my brothers were awesome at playing Mario, Paperboy, Zelda. I however was terrible! Back to the cakes, the wedding cake was vanilla butter cake with vanilla butter cream on the bottom cake and snickerdoodle cake with vanilla buttercream on top. The grooms cake was devils food with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream.
Princess Peach and Mario were provided by the bride and groom. Aren’t they cute?
As we all know, it is tradition for a bride and groom to save their cake top until their one year anniversary. Which makes sense, survive what is said to be one of the hardest years of marriage and as a reward you get to eat freezer burned year old cake. The lovely lady that made my wedding cake didn’t agree and sweetly made Dave and I a fresh little cake for our anniversary. It was delightful and a tradition that I gladly follow for couples who order a wedding cake from me.
Last year I made this cake and this year they picked up their complimentary first anniversary cake.
They chose to have it made in our butter vanilla with lemon curd,one of the flavors from their original cake. Happy Anniversary!
This is a 21st birthday cake I did about a month ago. Kaci came up with the entire design right down to the olives. The queen of hearts is hand drawn and completely edible. Inside the cake was red velvet with cream cheese frosting.
This cake consisted of 1 six inch square lemon with lemon curd cake and no less than 48 little mini cakes. The mini cakes with purple ribbon were devils food with chocolate fudge filling and the green ribbon had a matching key lime cake with a key lime cream cheese filling. The bride who happens to be a friend of mine wanted to do something that would be fresh and new that most people hadn’t seen before. I think we hit the mark. Congrats Melinda and Dave! We wish you a life of bliss!
Last year some time I had the opportunity to do a sixteenth birthday cake for Sarah, this year it was her sister Kaitlyn’s turn 16 and have her own sweetheart cake. This cake was butter vanilla with choclate mousse filling covered in swiss meringue buttercream and fondant.
Okay, so I just ripped off Cake Wrecks for that title, but it’s funny, right? Anyhow, on to the cake…. Chewbacca, the big lovable Wookie from Star Wars is seen here in chocolate and more chocolate with a little fondant for the accents. I really wanted to put flowers in his hair (fur?) since the cake was for a two year old little girl, but Dave (the Husband) put foot down. I guess it bordered on Star Wars Sacrilege.
A couple weeks ago my neighbor commissioned some bright and happy cupcakes for her daughter. Earlier that week I had the chance of having a great group of girls from church over for a class in fondant decorating. How cute are their cakes!
