Happy Ground Hogs Day

Everyone loves a little blue box....


This one was a special request for an engagement. It turned out great. I was so pleased with the color. The groom wanted to put the ring in the cake but it got too much cake on the ring. So we decided against it. I think I have solved that issue for future cakes. Can't wait to make another one.



It is all cake. The hotdog is made from cake scraps, nuts and honey and color all blended in a food processor and then shaped accordingly. The bun is a pound cake. Super easy.

I took one to an opening day party and people loved it. Although it took awhile before anyone would cut into it. It looks a little bit too real.


This is our family favorite for generations. It is a fluffy semi sweet chocolate cake with seven minute icing. The icing is sort of half way between a meringue and marshmallow. The chocolate on top is bitter sweet which really plays well with the super sweet icing.

Our big debate is always the extract flavor in the icing. I prefer almond but peppermint is good as well. We usually let the birthday person decide thier preference but have been know to flip a coin.

The only problem is that it does not hold well. It is best eaten really fresh and still warm. BUMMER EH!

Pregnant Lady Cake

This pregnant lady cake is a great shower gift. The dress can be custom made to the mother to be's style! I've done this with or without the dress, in any number of crazy logos, colors and accessories!
Your cake was a great hit yesterday at the shower! Everyone loved it! It was sooo cute and delicious too! No one at the shower had ever seen a cake like that before and a couple people took your card for future reference! Thanks again Andrea!

Handy Man Cake

I actually called 3M to see if I could get just the cardboard inserts for this one. They laughed and said no but they kept a copy of the picture! I did send them the cake but it did not travel well. These are a fun one to make. My husband hates that I keep ravaging his duct tape to get the core.

I have made these for handy men, and kids who love to make stuff with duct tape. It is easy to do and is a crowd pleaser for sure.

The first wedding cake

I did it! My first real wedding cake. I think it came out nicely. Very simple, not too fancy and not too hard to make either!! Thanks Lauren for taking a leap of faith!

Wedding cakes

I've added to my profile now.

I will soon be posting some photos of a mini wedding cake that I did as a prototype. I have not done an official wedding cake yet but I hope that some bride will be willing to take leap of faith and hire me! I have done them for classes and for friends but never for a real wedding.....I will do the first few for cheap!!
