Pina Colada Birthday Cake

As I told my kids, no fancy, shmancy cakes this year!  Just yummy flavors!  This cake had vanilla cake, coconut filling (like the kind for German chocolate cake but no nuts), fresh chopped pineapple filling and coconut cream butter cream frosting.  The kids at her party thought it tasted like Cap'n Crunch cereal, but the next day the flavors were more pronounced and had a great pina colada flavor!

Happy Birthday, Rachel!!!  We love you to the moon and back!!

High School Graduation Cupcakes

Fun graduation cupcakes for a High School graduate who loves Choir and Debate.
 Edible glitter, fondant, gum paste and modeling chocolate were all used for the decorations.  I seriously LOVE the edible glitter!  I want some in every color!!
Dark chocolate and peanut butter chocolate chip cake flavors with creamy peanut butter and dark chocolate frosting.  So yummy!!!  My kitchen smelled incredible!
Congratulations, Jory!!  And have a fantastic time at BYU Idaho in the fall!

Mint Green Rose Swirl Wedding Cake

This wedding cake was so gorgeous and simple.  I had help rolling those pretty little pearls and I'm finally getting the smooth frosting down better.  It doesn't take me nearly as long as it used to!  This was for a super deserving couple who've spent way too much time apart due to his service in the military.  Thank you both for your sacrifice and service!!

 Little fondant Spiderman for the groom!  There was a lot of Spiderman accents to this beautiful, rustic wedding!

Congratulations Cody and Brittany!  I'm so happy for you both to finally be together!!

Teaching Degree Graduation Cake

Sometimes it's nice to do a very cute but simple cake!   This is a cake for a sweet girl who graduated with her teaching degree.  I've never done the big bows on the top of a cake, so it was fun to try one out.  I loved doing the different ribbon patterns too!
 Sometime I'm going to have to invest in a sugar cricket so I can cut those letters out quicker!  These took forever!!
 Letters and numbers painted on black modeling chocolate with white petal dust.  Love that stuff!

 Gum paste ribbon bow!  I loved the colors and textures!

What a fun little colorful cake!  Congratulations, Ashley!!
