Happy Birthday to ME!!!

I usually don't make my own "birthday cake", but this year was different. I decided to celebrate with my students. We lucked out, and our class had won a pizza party for the day of my birthday, so I made dessert to go along with it. Being that my favorite color is pink, I wanted to frost my homemade chocolate fudge cupcakes with bright pink butter cream. While making the butter cream, I decided it would be nice to make lime green butter cream too (mainly for the boys in my class - I just knew some of them would say "PINK?") Away I went with the decorating! I even mixed the two colors on a few cupcakes and they had a "tie-dye" look to them. The funny thing is most of my boys wanted the pink cupcakes in the end! Check out my birthday cupcakes for my big 27th birthday!

I had the pleasure to create a 50th birthday cake for a wonderful friend and co-worker. The best part about it was that I had free range to create any cake that I wanted, including the flavors! The top layer was red velvet with cream cheese frosting, and the bottom layer was pound cake with raspberry butter cream. YUMMMMY! The cake was covered in black fondant and hot pink marshmallow fondant, and decorated with fondant polka dots and a big 50 on top. Everyone loved the cake. What impressed me the most was once the cake was cut, the party guests were like a bunch of vultures because it was gone within minutes. Not one piece of cake was left! That is how you know you've done a good job!

Elephant Topper

I love Googling cake ideas and following fellow bakers. I saw this on one baker's facebook page and thought it was absolutely adorable! I decided to attempt my first fondant figure to be placed on the top of a cake. Surprisingly, it turned out pretty good so there will be plenty more where this came from!

Beach Time Baby!

I am a total beach bum! It doesn't help that I went to college in Myrtle Beach, SC, so I am always ready and willing to hit the beach for an all day tanning session! Now that I live in GA, I don't have the chance to go everyday like I used to! I found a fellow baker that made a beach cake, so I made a spin-off of it. Everyone loves to put their toes in the sand! This is the perfect summer cake for any event or just to remind you of your favorite summer past time!

Today I had the pleasure of creating a Spongebob cake for a 5th birthday. As always, I am beyond excited to work on anything, but this cake was for a good friend that is also our Realtor. His son wanted a Spongebob themed cake, so after Googling pictures of the character, I knew what to do. The cake is a marble cake with butter cream frosting. DELICIOUS!

Brock "This well...FIREHOUSE SWEETS rocks!!! Thanks, Sandy!! Za has already looked & 'approved' the cake!!! "
