Flowers and Flames

My wonderful former roommate Brad told his neighbors about my cakes and they contacted me about a joint birthday party they were throwing for their children. (I think Brad knew he’d be invited to the party… win-win for him hahaha)

Now, some of you might know I don’t care much for cupcakes… well, let me rephrase, making cupcakes. You bring some over, I’ll nom them all day. Anyhow, that weekend was like… my cupcake nightmare weekend. Between this and another order, about 75 cupcakes.
I’ll tell you what though, they were darn cute.
I was asked to do a small cake for each child and some cupcakes with matching theme.
Everything was just freaking adorable.

Making the flame cupcakes was a BLAST.I swirled yellow and orange icing and then topped some with white chocolate ladders and some with white chocolate flames. I made the flames by painting white chocolate onto wax paper and then airbrushing them! They came out so well and the little fire truck was awesome.

For Aubrey,

Little lady bugs and flowers, super springy colors… the lady bug on the cake matches the ladybug on the dress they got her for the party. ADORBS.

Ok, so maybe I don’t ALWAYS hate making cupcakes. But don’t quote me on that ;)

A Nightmare Before Christmas Birthday

You’ll have to excuse the lack of tutorials maybe for a week or two. I’m still trying to piece my life back together.

This is one of the coolest cakes I’ve ever put together. I was super proud of it. My friend’s son was turning 4 (which is INSANE) and wanted a Nightmare Before Christmas theme.
I think I did them proud…

Jacks’ face was hand drawn with edible markers and the skulls were cast in white chocolate! Yum!

Bulldozer Birthday Cake!

I made this awesome bulldozer birthday cake for a little guy named Atreyu’s 2nd birthday. The cake was chocolate filled with cookies and cream buttercream frosting and covered in fondant. I made the wheels out of cookies and all the dirt was cookie and cake crumbs.

Super cute!

Yo Gabba Gabba Cake

So here’s the cake I was working on the other day all finished up!

The cake was coated in home made buttercream and then covered with home made marshmallow fondant. I created each character by hand with a reference photo and attached them to the side of the cake with a little bit of piping gel. The pink boarder is buttercream.

Some of you who follow my personal blog know that I got my own bakery boxes. I purchased boxes without windows so that I could custom cut windows for each cake and put in my own plastic. I’m still loving these boxes.
