Happy Birthday to a very sweet little princess.  Vanilla cake with vanilla butter cream icing.  The roses and butterfly are gum paste.  The tiara was provided by the customer.

My little man is 8!!

So the boy that made me a mother just turned 8!  I can’t believe how time flies.  For this very special birthday I had a very special cake request.  We’ve been reading Harry Potter together, and he wanted Hogwarts Castle.  We typically have small intimate family only parties, so I had to scale the design way down.  It’s a loose interpretation, but we have the castle, the Whomping Willow, the Forbidden Forest, and the Black Lake.

The trees and the Whomping Willow are made of modeling chocolate.

The castle itself is cake with rice cereal treats for the roofs.

Peace, Love, and Cake

This was for a retirement party for a well loved and much to be missed psych nurse.  A gentle soul and a hippie at heart, this cake was right up her ally.  The top tier was chocolate with raspberry filling and vanilla butter cream.  The bottom tier was white cake with vanilla butter cream
