Diaper/Wipes Shower

This cake was a vanilla cake with buttercream icing and served 54 people. Done for Dessert Daughter's diap/wipe shower in Feb. 2009.

The Incredible Hulk

We were given a coloring book for inspiration on this cake. It was vanilla cake with buttercream icing and served 54. We made this one January 30, 2009. Hope you enjoyed this one, Will!!

Tom & Jerry Cake

Michael is old school! Hard to believe he was only turning 3. He loves Tom & Jerry and asked for a Tom & Jerry party. This cake was 54 servings. Dessert Mother drew this on the cake freehand. She did a great job, right?! It was vanilla cake and buttercream icing. We used a shell border on this one.

Camp Rock Cake

Karli loves Camp Rock. This cake was about 35 servings and was vanilla cake and buttercream icing. This one was made in January 2009. We really enjoyed making this one, and if you could zoom in to the word "CAMP" you'd see the wood grain detail on the letters. We used the rope border on this one.

Wizards of Waverly Place Cake

My niece loves Wizards of Waverly Place on Disney. Anybody that does cakes knows how hard it is to do faces and live characters on a cake. My mom and I came up with a little trick on how to capture images on a cake without going to the expense of edible ink and paper for special printers. However, it's our little secret. It's not that hard to figure out, though. Anyway, this cake was done January 2009 and was about 20 servings with the typical vanilla cake and buttercream icing. Delicious!

Hello Kitty Cake

This cake was also the favorite birthday cake flavor - vanilla cake with buttercream icing. As you can tell by the cake, the little girl, Caidee, was turning 4 and loved Hello Kitty, so her mom brought me a plate and napkin to copy. She loved the little flower and polka dot detail on the birthday banner, too, so I put a few of those on the cake. This cake was 54 servings.

Girl's 1st Birthday

I really enjoyed this one. I was given a napkin to copy for Anna Raley's 1st birthday. Of course I did her a small cake to tear into, too. What's a 1st birthday without seeing icing and cake smeared all over the birthday girl? The sheet cake served 54 people and matched the small cake. It was vanilla cake with buttercream icing. It was tidious but therapeutic to do a double-colored border. The large cake was an 12x18x2 and the small cake was a 6x4.

City Girl's Shower Cake

I don't know if you guys follow my younger brother & sister-in-law's blog, ( but if you do, you may have already seen this one. This cake was for the bridal shower my mom's sisters gave the bride and groom. It served 86 people. It was a vanilla cake with buttercream icing. The bride's favorite color is green, so it was a no-brainer on the color. The second picture shows the true color. The first one was with no flash on the camera, but you can see the piping detail we did better on that one. This cake was done summer 2008.

Our First Wedding Cake

This was our first wedding cake. I know, I know, it's not your typical wedding cake. The bride definitely wanted something different, and different is just what she got. She picked the color to match her bridesmaids' dresses. She loves hot pink. She also likes polka dots. So we did her cake hot pink buttercream and dot borders. You can't really tell by the picture, but we also did some detailed piping on all the layers. The bride and groom's initials are on the middle tier. They liked strawberry cake the best, so we did a mixture of strawberry and vanilla cake with buttercream between layers. This cake served 200, not counting the top tier. We also threw in a picture of a fruit/dip display my cousin did for the same wedding. My cousin owns a catering business. She catered the entire wedding. Looks awesome, doesn't it? Her mom does flowers, too. She done all the flowers on the cake and for the wedding. Great job, girls!!

Bassinet Cake

This cake was a vanilla cake tinted baby blue with buttercream icing. One time-consuming task was the basket weave. A steady hand is the secret and patience, a must. The umbrella was made of white chocolate and then covered with vanilla fondant. The baby, blanket, and pillow was made from fondant. We made a base on legs with wheels out of wood and covered it with a miniature bassinet skirt made from scrap material we had on hand. A cake like this is challenging but so much fun.

Monster Truck

This cake was a vanilla cake with buttercream icing. It served 36 people. It was for a cousins second birthday. Gage wanted to play with it as soon as he saw it.

Petit Fors

Petit Fors are so delicious. One of my friends wants them and nothing else on her birthday each year. They take a while to do but are so worth it. Some of these have little purple rosebuds on them, but the others are plain.

Royal Icing & Basket Weave

These are some of the flowers we made in class in 2008. We used royal icing and color flow. They dry kind of like candy. You place them on the cake after frosting it. They can be made ahead of time and kept on hand for some quick flowers. We also learned our basket weave technique with this cake.

Snow White in 3D

This is a 3D Snow White cake. The bottom part (grass) feeds 36 people. It's vanilla cake and buttercream icing. Snow White is cake from the waist down. Her clothing from waist up is homemade fondant, as well as the bluebird on her wrist. The doll is a standard toy. The skirt part of the doll is 4 layers of red velvet cake and buttercream icing. It fed about 15 people which brings the total servings of this cake to about 51 people. We hope to have several more 3D cakes to do. They're challenging, but so much fun!


This cake was done for Big T's 4th birthday in February 2009. It served about 65-70 people. The Batman logo and Batman's head are seperate hand-carved layers. It was vanilla cake and buttercream icing. Batman's face was fondant.

Yellow Rose Shower Cake

This cake was done for a wedding shower. It was red velvet cake and buttercream icing, even the roses were buttercream.

Betty Rose's Birthday

This cake was done for a family member, Betty Rose. It fed 54 people. It's vanilla cake with buttercream icing and fondant daisies.

Go Diego Go!

These cakes were for my son's 4th birthday. Diego fed about 20-25 people and Rescue Pack was hand-carved and fed about 30-35. They were both vanilla cake and buttercream icing. The hand-carving was something new for us. I think it turned out pretty good.

Cardinals Cookie & Cupcakes

This was fun, fun, fun!!! We made a giant cookie and several cupcakes. We used buttercream icing

and fondant. The kids loved it! This was for my son's T-Ball team, the Cardinals, in 2008.

This was our first cake decorated for someone else. This cake was done February 2008. Our little buddy "Big T" loved the movie Cars. This cake fed about 70-75 people. It was a 2-layer vanilla cake with buttercream icing.

Chocolate 4-layer Cake

This cake was decorated by Daughter and Sister for Mother. It was February 2008. This cake was a 4-layer butter cake with chocolate pudding filling. It was iced with chocolate buttercream. A chocolate lover's dream!!

Cake Decorating Class in 2008

Here's some of the cakes we decorated in class and at home after class. They were lots of fun to do, especially learning all the new techniques. I never knew there were so many types of frosting!
