Birth Announcement

Tara from Bliss called about a very small cake for her client’s Alice in Wonderland-themed baby shower and gave me creative discretion (awesome). I love making small cakes that make a big impact, so I sculpted White Rabbit popping out of a sugar tea cup, announcing the impending arrival of the baby! Jodi was thrilled and plans […]

Rita’s Cake…

How many times can I make this cake? MANY! But for Rita’s event, we pulled out all the stops… created a complete sugar spread with olives, crackers, nuts, cheese wedges, a bottle of wine and a bottle of olive oil. Phew! It was a sugar FEAST!

Joshua’s World

I’ve been busy these past two months working on some exciting magazine photo shoots; unfortunately, these cakes are top secret for now – and until they’re published in print! But here’s one I can definitely share with you – a cake that made me smile from ear to ear. Joshua is one lucky boy! Every […]

Aristo’s Madagascar Cake

It’s been a busy week, but I just had to take a second here to post some photos of Aristo’s Madagascar-inspired cake. His awesome mom, Cary, told me that her son had just seen the Madagascar sequel and was a huge fan of the movie. So we came up with the idea of a cake […]

Tiffany’s Purse

A client of mine requested this pink designer purse cake for her 25th birthday. I loved the simplicity of the design and the shade she requested. I used an equal mixture of edible gold gel and powder to paint the sugar zipper, loops and bracelet clasps and they shone like real gold. A fine dusting […]

A Cake for Hockey Lovers

I entered a cake competition last week. The rules were to make a three-tiered “winter-themed cake”, so I came up with the idea of making the bottom tier ice, the second tier a duffel bag and the top tier a sculpted pair of skates. From start to finish, it took about 16 hours to decorate […]

The Lucky Bear Cake

One of my clients asked for a three-dimensional *Lucky Bear Cake* this week. It took me about 8 hours to sculpt and decorate this cake and I spent that entire time humming the Care Bears tune and driving everyone nuts *L* This three-tiered chocolate cake with cookie & cream buttercream measures 14″ in height and […]

C’est l’Halloween!

Rosie, Editor of the Cake & Flowers department at Wedding Bells Magazine, emailed me last week asking for a dozen Halloween-inspired cupcakes for the team. I immediately imagined a pumpkin patch of cupcakes! The straw on the box completed the look.

The Bagel Lover

Things never get dull around here! When Sven called looking for a cake shaped just like a poppy seed bagel, complete with cream cheese and lox, I had to laugh. He explained that his friend is a huge fan of bagels, and he couldn’t think of a better cake for his birthday. I rose to […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

When a dear client called looking for a unique alternative to pumpkin pie for her Thanksgiving dinner, I immediately envisioned a cake sculpted like a real pumpkin. I wanted to give her a cake that doubled as a table centerpiece, and that’s just what she got :) They say you can’t judge a book by […]

The Chocolate Lover

A father’s 80th birthday is something special, and that’s just what Dana was looking for when he called about a cake. I asked him a few questions and quickly found out that his father’s a huge fan of chocolate. So I suggested a cake shaped like a box of chocolates and he loved the idea. […]

Le piano

Sculpted cakes are one of my very favorite things to make for two reasons: because they’re challenging and I love a challenge, and because people just go nuts when they see ‘em! I wasn’t sure where to start with this small yet {grand} piano, so I started with the basic shape. Then, I carved in […]
