Wii Love Mario Brothers!

Super Mario Brothers have been a favorite at our house for as long as I can remember.  This cake features several of the characters that are found in all of their games.  Mario rides off into the midst of the action atop of his trusty friend Yoshi. 
Luigi (made by my sister-in-law Jennifer) collects an extra life mushroom that pops up from a brick block.

Burgundy, Plum, and white pearls drip down the sides of the Kathy two tiered cake.  Row after row of hand piped pearls draws your eye from the very top where the groom is being dragged from his favorite sport down to the very bottom where burgundy colored fishes tempt him to stay.

Run For The Roses

For someone who loves horse racing, this cake is sure to be a winner. Soft ivory colored fondant sets the scene for the powerful races horses that make their run around the brown sugar race track on the bottom teir. The top two teirs support an edible trophy cup and a blanket of red fondant ribbon roses.

All decorations are edible and hand made.

Beyond The Hill Cemetery Cake

This Birthday Cake goes one step beyond "Over the Hill."  Witty sayings piped onto sugar cookie headstones let the guest of honor know just how old they really are.

Cake Flavor- Finger lickin' Good Cake infused with pineapple and coconut; with creamy pistachio & coconut frosting.  Very tasty

Graceful curving vines wrap around this beautifully simple three tier wedding cake. The textured fondant leaves add just a touch of color to the smooth surface of the fondant and echos the vine imprinted fondant cake base. The cascading flower bouquet shows off orchids and roses in green, pink, lavender, and purple.

Sparkler Cake

What says patriotic more than fireworks? This pyrotechnic holiday was always my Grandpa's favorite because it also doubled as his birthday. When he was young he was convinced that the fireworks bursting in the nighttime sky was in his honor. Through the years a tradition was born, every year on his birthday cake instead of candles we placed sparklers and sang "Happy Birthday" to Grandpa as the sparklers spit their light and ashes over the soft frosting. This year Grandpa's Snickerdoodle cake was dressed up with red and white stars and a shower of edible sparkles shooting up from the center of the cake. Happy Birthday Grandpa!

A Timeless Classic-
A soft Ivory backdrop of smooth buttercream icing sets off hand crafted peach roses that rest at the peak of each floral garland, highlighting the garlands are delicate swags of coral colored stringwork. Elegant columns hold multiple tiers of luscious White Velvet Cake high above the table top, while below pale peach liquid flows gently down the cascading tiers of a fountain placed amid a wreath of peach, ivory and white roses. Filigree staircases lead down from the middle tier down to a smaller but just as showy display of roses and ruffles. From there a second set of lace like stairways end in a finale of mirrored garlands, ruffles, and roses.

Little Pink Purses

These little Pink Purse Cupcakes were created for a bridal shower where the invitation that was sent was also a pink purse.
Cupcake Flavor: Marbled yellow and chocolate Cake with Pink Buttercream icing.

When I was finished with all the cakes I had a few that I had messed up on, so I let each of my girls decorate one like a purse. When I told my little Emma that she could have one of the purses she giggled and said "Oh mommy I'm so excited to make a purse." Giggle, Giggle. "An' it's purple, Oh!" She exclaimed excitedly, "it will match my shoes!" She's 3, I think I'm in trouble for when she's a teenager!
