"Party Animal" Cakes

These cakes and cupcakes were prepared for a first birthday party for twins - a boy and a girl. They were butter cake with cream cheese frosting, and the cupcakes were red velvet and butter cake. The theme was inspired by dishes I saw in a kitchen store that were way too cute!

Harvey's Seatbelt Bag Cake

This is a Harvey's Seatbelt Bag (purse) cake. The cake took 32 hours to create, and was lemon with citrus cream cheese filling covered in vanilla buttercream and fondant. The recipient loves these bags and also daisies, so I was quite happy to find this tree stump and daisy patch outside my home to photograph this for her. Thanks to the birthday girl for sending me a photo of the cake cut open!

Boston Red Sox Hat Cake for the Groom

This is a Boston Red Sox Hat Cake designed for a wedding at Red Butte Gardens in Salt Lake City, Utah. The bride surprised her groom with this cake, and also had white baseball hats with the Red Sox "B" made for all of the wait staff. The cake is chocolate with chocolate fudge buttercream frosting and molded fondant, and took 24 hours to complete.

Yes, this can also be done as a New York Yankees cake (or any team for that matter). Cakes cannot be shipped, but I can be shipped to bake this for you, and would be happy to discuss arrangements if you're looking for a specialty cake.

A Golf Themed Birthday Cake

This is a golf themed birthday cake with the upper tier supported by real golf balls. This cake was surprisingly sturdy - I was told it withstood the chandelier falling on top of it at the birthday party!

A Retro Themed Birthday Cake

This is a retro themed birthday cake. All of the recipient's favorite things - his furniture, guitar collection, and vintage scooter - were incorporated into the second tier. The cakes were red velvet and lemon with cream cheese frosting. This cake weighed 25 pounds and stood just over 20 inches!

Wedding Cake

This was a small Bride's cake. The bride served cupcakes to her guests, and asked me to create a small cutting cake for her. It was a butter cake with lemon cream cheese frosting and fondant, adorned in gumpaste flowers.
