Pink Lady Bug 1st Birthday Cake

There is nothing more satisfying than having a cake turn out exactly as I wanted it to.
With that said I love, love, love how this cake turned out! I was asked to make a Pink Lady Bug Cake for a friends daughters first birthday.
The cake is an 8" vanilla cake with chocolate buttercream filling and covered in pure white buttercream.
All accents are made from fondant

 I can't even decide which part of this cake is my favorite. I think everything from the bow, to the curls to the lady bugs!
I hope the birthday girl has a wonderful first birthday!!

Double Chocolate Cake - Extremely Chocolaty Birthday Cake YUM

It was my husbands 29th Birthday yesterday and he has become a cake monster the past few months. So the kids and I decided to make him an extremely chocolaty  birthday cake. I mean this thing was a chocolate cake filled with the best chocolate filling, covered in chocolate buttercream and smothered in hand curled milk and white chocolate. This cake is a chocolate lovers delight!

AND can I just say it was delicious...I must admit it went very well with my morning coffee HAHA


Blue Jays Cupcakes for a 30th Birthday

Who doesn't love a good baseball game...or a good baseball team for that matter!!
I was asked to make some cupcakes for a 30th birthday with the Toronto Blue Jays as the theme
These cupcakes were very fun to make!  All cupcakes are chocolate with vanilla icing. All fondant decorations are edible.
All of the logo's were hand cut and hand painted...it took me a few times to get them right lol AND I have NEVER been good at drawing Maple leafs...ever!

Flying Unicorn Cake - Pegasus Cake

I love that I get to be apart of friends and family's birthdays year after year. Seeing kids faces when they see their cake is the BEST part of doing this.

Last year I made a horse themed cake for Addison's birthday. This year she graduated to flying unicorns otherwise known as a Pegasus.

It was also requested that the inside of the cake be rainbow. Rainbows and flying unicorns kind of go hand in hand in my opinion and I have been wanting to try doing a rainbow cake in one pan for awhile.
I could have baked each colour individually but that seemed very time consuming lol. One day I WILL do a total rainbow cake but for our purposes doing it all in one pan seemed to fit the bill

All the beautiful colours before they made it into the pan

Rainbow caked baked and torted...didn't turn out too bad

Cake is covered in fondant. The Pegasus'  were hand cut which took some time and just about all of my patience lol.

The bottom of the cake is hand painted to make it look like a meadow with flower accents.

Top of the cake reminds me of a riding medal :)

Hope you had a great birthday Addison!!
