We did a dessert bar for a bookstore's Christmas party last night. We made Peppermint Bark Cookies, Chocolate Chunk Cookies, Black and White Cheesecake Bars, Gingerbread Cookies, Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, Apple Tartlets, Red Velvet Cake Lollipops, and a two tier cake that was Apple Spice with Cream cheese filling and vanilla buttercream. They all loved it, and I was very pleased with how everything turned out!

My Mom's Birthday Cake

My mom is turning 60 on December 10th, and since my entire family was getting together for Thanksgiving, we celebrated her birthday up in Klamath Falls. My mom grew up on a farm in Wisconsin, so I made her a farm themed cake (no, it's not farmville), and she loved it! The bottom tier was apple spice with vanilla filling, and the top tier was triple chocolate with strawberry filling, all frosted in vanilla buttercream and all the animals are handmade out of fondant (so fun to make). Happy Birthday, Mom, you're the best!!!


My family went to KlamathFalls this past weekend for Thanksgiving, and there my Mom decided to celebrate all 7 grandkids birthdays that have happened over this year. So I made 7 cakes for my nieces and nephews, each in the design they wanted. Caleb loves Transformers, Brianna is into Hello Kitty, Erica's favorite princess is Sleeping Beauty, Andrew and Dylan love Star wars, Isaac loves army, and Emily loves princesses, but really Isaac wanted the princess cake the whole time. Happy Birthday to my wonderful nieces and nephews, I love you all so much!!

Happy Halloween

The cake that I made earlier this week was for the same girl this cake was made for. The first one was for her family party, and this was for her halloween/birthday party. This cake was black and orange funfetti with vanilla cream filling.

not so sure about this one.

This cake was the final for my course 3 that I turned into a Wall-E cake for my nephew's birthday. The bottom tier was painted to "resemble" trash, but it looks more like a mosaic. The top tier is sky. This is pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese filling.

Cake for a Photographer

We made a birthday cake for a friend of ours who is a photographer. The cake is a teal funfetti, with cream cheese filling and vanilla buttercream. The camera is made out of vanilla pound cake and fondant. Matthew did the majority of the detail work on the camera, and I am blown away at how good it looks! My husband is amazing! We made it to match the camera that she uses. Happy Birthday, Giana!! The second picture was taken by Giana, and that is her camera sitting next to the cake.

Pool Table Cake

So, I didn't make this cake by myself. My sister was asked to make a groom's cake for her friends wedding, and asked me to help her make it since she's never worked with fondant before. Krista baked the cake, and I taught her how to make the fondant, and helped her with bits and pieces of it. She did a lot of the work, and we're both very proud of it. The cake is chocolate with Bavarian cream and sliced strawberries, along with vanilla buttercream and marshmallow fondant.
