Frozen Birthday Cake

(Another) Frozen themed birthday cake! Styled a little differently than others I've done, so that keeps them fun! Covered with fondant, toy Anna, Elsa and Olaf toys, all other details were fondant.

Gold Wedding Cupcakes

So here I am, yet again - posting work I did long ago (back in December to be exact!) This was a lovely, lovely wedding I provided cupcakes and a cutting cake for, held at The King's Daughters Inn in Durham, NC. Everything was decorated so beautifully and they were truly a joy to work with. The cupcake flavors were red velvet with vanilla swiss meringue and vanilla bean with vanilla swiss meringue. We accented some of the cupcakes with glittering gold heart picks and others simply with gold sprinkles. I hand made a golden gum paste topper for the couples' small cutting cake at the top of the stand.

Batman & Superman Cupcakes

Fun cupcakes to celebrate two little guys' birthdays! One loves Batman, the other Superman, so we made a mixture of fondant toppers for them. These were chocolate cupcakes with toasted marshmallow filling and fluffy chocolate buttercream, with fondant toppers.

Lacrosse Player Graduation Cake

I actually did this cake a little while back, but it had slipped my mind to post it! A cake to celebrate a high school grad lacrosse player heading to Methodist University! (We decided to decorate the cake using his High School colors).

Basketball Shoe Cake

I had the pleasure of making this young man's Birthday cake a couple years' back through Icing Smiles and was so very excited to make his Birthday cake this year! His fellow team mates went together to buy him a new pair of basketball shoes, so we decided to model his cake after his new shoes! It was exciting to see this cake go from sketch, to crumb-coated shape, to final product! Not too bad for my first shoe cake!
