Cheese Cake!!!!

As per usual, I was asked to make a surprise birthday cake for a friend's cousin. When I asked if she had anything in mind, she answered "she likes cheese."

I IMMEDIATELY knew what I wanted to do and I was sooooo excited about this one!!

Here is, a CHEESE cake!

The cake itself was a block of cheese, and I made adorable little mice and of course, some crackers!!

The birthday girl loved her cake so much, she wouldn't let anyone cut into it! Good thing I also gave them the piece I carved out, THAT was what they ended up eating since no one was allowed to cut the cheese!! :P

3rd Birthday Cake & Cupcakes!

After the success of the New Year's Cake and her son's expensive Jeans Cake, my friend from work knew she wouldn't go anywhere else to get some sweets for her other son's 3rd Birthday!

For the birthday boy and his family to share at home, I made this adorable lion cake!

And for the birthday boy and the rest of the males in his daycare class, I made these cute balloon cuppies!

And for the little ladies in the birthday boy's daycare class, I made these matching flower cuppies!

The prefect treats for a birthday celebration! :)

Teddy Bear Cake!

I made this adorable Teddy Bear cake for my friend's niece's 1st Birthday party!

Everyone absolutely loved the cake!! It was also such a fun one to make! Well really, what's not fun about creating a cutie like that to sit on top of a pink cake with polka dots?! :)

Jeans Cake!

The same friend who I made the New Year's cake for (below!), had another cake need: it was also her son's 17th birthday!

Aside from the usual teenage boy shenanigans, her son loves spending HER money on all the latest things - so she thought it would be a good idea to have an expensive pair of jeans cake to help celebrate her son's big day!


I had no idea how to go about making this cake, but after way too much analyzing I just went for it, and I must say, it is 10000% one of my all time faves! It turned out to be a blast to make and I love the way it looked in the end!!

And of course, my friend, her son and his friends absolutely loved it as well! So definitely another success! :)

New Year's Cake!

My friend asked me to make a New Year's cake to help celebrate for her family and some guests and the only instructions I got were to make it purple with some gold and/or silver.

Here's what I came up with!

I painted the top with black, gold and silver with a purple layered effect around the sides and topped it off with gold and silver gems! Fancy shmance!

The end result was something sparkley and festive to help her ring in the new year in cake style!

60th Birthday Cake!

I was asked to make a 60th birthday cake similar to the birthday cake I made for my grandmother 2 birthdays ago, except with one colour change!

Here it is!

I absolutely loved the light purple with the black and white - very subtle and very classy!
