Heart Cake

This was a cake given away during one of our "friendship drives" on Facebook. They requested a cake for their anniversary.

Big Lebowski

This was a birthday cake I made for a friend. If you haven't seen the movie Big Lebowski you probably won't understand any part of the cake!

Baby Shower


This was our biggest undertaking so far. It was made for a young boy's bowling party. Unfortunately the cake had to be made a couple days early and didn't survive the trip to the party!

Cake Balls!

Cake balls may just be the best invention ever. Instead of throwing away tons of cake scraps you can make them into delicious moist balls of chocolate-covered cake. I may be a cake decorator but I do not like cake. I love these, though, and haven't found anyone who doesn't.

This cake was made for a 9 year old who liked wolves. A new chocolate cake recipe was used and while it was tasty it didn't stay together very well! The cake made it in one piece, though, and she loved it.

This was a first birthday cake for a little girl. The colors for her party were pink and brown. She loved her "smash cake" and ate almost the entire thing! The cupcake on the top is made of gum paste but has real cake inside of it.

Flower Garden

The concept of this cake was a vase of flowers. It ended up looking like a flower garden with a fence around it which was a much cuter idea anyway! I was nervous about making gum-paste flowers, and I was correct in thinking they would be hard at first! These took me a couple of days to make but it was worth it! I didn't have time to make the bow out of fondant, though I would have preferred to! Making bows the old-fashioned way never turns out well for me!

Attack of the Half-Eaten Zombie Halloween Candy

This cake was given away free to a random facebook page member after we reached 1000 friends! The inspiration came from the massive amount of candy we had left after Halloween.


This cake was very simple to make and turned out great.

Dry Erase Board

This cake looks simple but was actually very involved! It's always the ones that seem easy that give you the most trouble!


One bad thing about being a fan of a certain college football team is that you feel like a traitor when you have to make a cake for an opposing team. Especially one that just beat your team! Turned out well for such a crappy theme though!
