We made 250 white chocolate lollipop wedding favors all dusted with luster dust and each individually bagged and tied, ready to be placed at each place setting. There is 125 Airplane (he's fixing a plane) shaped pops and 125 Paintbrush (she's and artist) shaped pops. Such a great idea for personalized wedding favors!! Congratulations Vannessa and Rudy!!

My nephew Andrew turned 6 years old on Friday, and we celebrated yesterday. He's obsessed with bats right now and wanted a bat cake, not batman, and he wanted carrot cake (turns out, that's what daddy wanted), so that's what he got. This is a carrot cake with cinnamon cream cheese filling and vanilla buttercream. The bats are all made from fondant. Happy Birthday, big guy! We love you so much!!

This is our first fall cake of the season, and I made a cake for my friends 27th birthday this morning. The cake was pumpkin spice cake with cinnamon cream cheese filling and vanilla buttercream. All the decorations were made from fondant, both vanilla and dark chocolate fondant, and the owls were to represent mom, dad and son. Happy Birthday Giana!!

We had the opportunity to make the wedding cake for a girl I grew up with. Their wedding was in Vallejo, CA at The Hiddenbrooke Golf Club. Everything was milk chocolate cake with strawberry filling and vanilla buttercream, and all the flowers are handmade from gumpaste. The grooms cake had an image of Zelda and Link on it. We had a great time doing these cakes, and a great time at their wedding!! Thanks so much Amy and Dennis for having us be a part of your big day!!

We delivered a cake to Los Gatos this morning (that was a long delivery) for the wedding of a good friend of ours. Janine and Ken's wedding was lovely, despite the heat, and we had a wonderful time. I'm very pleased with how their cake turned out, possibly one of my favorite wedding cakes we've done so far. The bottom tier was Chocolate fudge cake with vanilla cream bavarian cream filling, middle tier was mocha fudge cake with mocha mousse filling, and the top tier was vanilla velvet cake with strawberry filling all frosted with vanilla buttercream. All the flowers are handmade gerbera daisies. Congratulations Ken and Janine Tinsley, we're very happy for you!!

In the past two weeks we've had a few orders. First, last weekend we had wedding dress cookies for a bridal shower: vanilla sugar cookies with vanilla royal icing. This weekend we had two cakes, a small 6" cake for a one year old's birthday party (Vanilla velvet cake with vanilla buttercream), and a three tier for a going away party for a guy that is going into the Air Force (triple chocolate fudge with cookies n' cream filling and vanilla buttercream).

This week I had the privilege of teaching a cupcake class for the first time at the store because the normal instructor was unable to. I had never taken the class before, so I was a little unsure of how it would go. They all said they really enjoyed it and the cupcakes turned out really cute...here are the ones I demoed in class and then the students took my example and did their own:
Also, this weekend I had an order for a lady from my church for cupcakes for a bridal shower she was hosting for her niece. The brides colors are raspberry and teal, and the flavors she chose for the cupcakes were triple chocolate cake with cookies n' cream filling and vanilla velvet cake with raspberry filling. The raspberry filling was wonderful...we absolutely loved it! Kathy, I hope you enjoyed the shower and the cupcakes were loved by all!

We made the wedding cake for my co-workers sons wedding. They're colors are dark purple and dark blue, but the lighting doesn't do it justice. The top tier is vanilla velvet with fudge filling; 2nd tier was mocha cake with cookies n' cream filling; 3rd tier was lemon cake with lemon curd filling; and the bottom tier was vanilla velvet with vanilla buttercream filling. We delivered it to a church in Stockton. All the cala lillies are handmade from gumpaste. Congratulations Kyla and Chris!!

We had three events this weekend for a total of 484 cupcakes. 54 cupcakes went to a women's brunch Saturday morning, 120 mini cupcakes were delivered to a wedding reception in Walnut Creek, and 300 were delivered to a wedding in Oakdale. The first cupcakes were triple chocolate with cookies n' cream filling, and vanilla with strawberry filling and both frosted with vanilla buttercream, and I made lavender and pink fondant daisies to go on each. The second order had 4 different flavors: german chocolate, strawberry lemonade, carrot, and vanilla. All were frosted with vanilla buttercream, except the german chocolate, and they each had a gumpaste flower on top. The final batch were half triple chocolate and half vanilla, frosted with vanilla buttercream and each one had a crystalized viola on top.

We celebrated my nephew's 9th birthday and my brother in law's 30th birthday this weekend and I made the cakes..are we surprised at all...I didn't think so. My nephew, Caleb, loves Star Wars, so I made a Star Wars cake for him, and Jason, my B-I-L is a General Contractor, so I made a tool cake for him. They both LOVED their cakes (Caleb had the best reaction when he saw his), and they tasted yummy too. Tool cake was triple chocolate with strawberry filling and Star Wars cake was triple chocolate with cookie's n' cream filling, and both were frosted with vanilla buttercream.

So, March 8th was my 25th birthday, so I had a birthday party on Saturday, and yes I made my own cake. My birthday party had an owl theme, and if you know me a little bit, you know that I love owls. It was a tea party and I had some fun desserts/favors to go with the theme. Thanks for checking it out.
I made sugar cookies and printed the owls on edible paper, the cake was triple chocolate with cookies and cream filling and vanilla buttercream, owl lollipops were amaretto dark chocolate, and the theme owls were on the invitation also
