Bud Light Anyone?

All birthdays should be special. They should be spent with friends and family, and a yummy birthday cake! A good friend of ours just turned 21, so I decided to surprise him with the best 21st gift ever...a super, delicious, chocolate fudge cake with buttercream. The cake was topped with a marshmallow fondant "Bud Light" symbol from the top of the bottle. Let the celebration begin!

Hannah Montana

I was recently put to the challenge. Make a birthday cake? NO PROBLEM! Make it sugar free? BRING IT ON!!! I have never used, eaten, let alone purchased Splenda in my life! I did my research and tried a few recipes (which I wasn't pleased with) and went with my yellow cake recipe and just substituted the sugar for Splenda. The texture was a bit more like pound cake, but was still yummy. Trial and error will continue until it is mastered! The theme was Hannah Montana for the party. What four year old doesn't love Hannah Montana? The cake was iced in Splenda Chocolate icing and decorated with my marshmallow fondant. I used pink, white, and teal to create a guitar, stars, and the HM initials. Super cute and super fun!

Girls Night Out!

I had the pleasure of creating the bachelorette cake of my choice all the way from the cake, icing, and design! I opted for my classic pound cake with raspberry buttercream and topped with my marshmallow fondant in hot pink with green accents. The cake was adorned with a martini glass! The girls were going out for a night on the town in Atlanta to the piano bar before the bride to be was to become a married woman!
