I designed this cake for my friend Chris who surprised his wife Bridget with a 40th birthday party. She is much into fashion and designer bags, so I took all that into consideration and came up with this fun and colorful cake. EVERYTHING is edible! I just love how it turned out and the best part was that Chris called me later to let me know that Bridget loved the cake as well as everyone else! Bottom cake was a moist chocolate cake filled with alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla buttercreams. Middle tier was a flavorful and yummy coconut cake. The LV purse was hand molded using rice crispies and fondant.

Designed this cake for my husband's 40th birthday. I was very happy with the result. I had found an artist online who does fish art and loved his work. That was part of what inspired me to do this cake for him and the fact that he loves fishing. His favorite cake flavor, chocolate with peanut butter cream cheese.

Happy Birthday my little Prince! I had a quite busy weekend with my son's birthday along with also celebrating my husband's 40th birthday and his cousin's 35th birthday. Every year we try to celebrate their birthdays together, but this year I made a special cake for each one of them. Jeremy's cake could not have been anything but Star Wars related. He loves the "white guys" or storm troopers, so I made this cake just for him. The storm trooper is modeled using rice crispies and covered in fondant. This was a moist chocolate cake filled with caramel buttercream and dulce de leche.

My niece Camila is turning 14 on Monday but we got together today to celebrate her birthday. I use my family as guinea pigs when it comes to tasting new flavor combinations. So I baked a chocolate cake and made a really yummy banana cream cheese filling. I also added fresh cut bananas and an amazing caramel rum sauce. I always add a thin spread of chocolate ganache to each cake layer for a more chocolaty flavor...is that even a word! Well, you know what I mean, the more chocolate the better. So I frosted the cake with a light mocha buttercream and topped it with more chocolate ganache and caramel sauce and chocolate chip cookie crumbs. Oh Yea! I know you are drooling by now....it was amazing!
I created this cake for Clara's 60th Birthday. She is a family friend and her sister in law, Lorelle, surprised her with this cake. Inspiration for this design came from a gift bag I had.
