One new cake this week - a "Happy 1st Birthday" Jackolantern! The punkin cake is chocolate chip with fondant details and letters to mimic candy corn. A Happy and Safe Halloween to all!
Leading up to Halloween...
Hi everyone! Sorry I have not blogged sooner, I have been recovering from the massive invasion of fourth graders at my house for our annual Halloween bash. In fact, that was the occasion for one of the cakes this weekend - the tiered spider number. The cake is three tiers of red velvet (my new favorite and a spooky bloody color!). It is covered with buttercream and fondant and handpainted with black food coloring to make the webs. The spiders are made of fondant rolled in black sugar with edible sugar pearls for eyes. Also from the party are the mini carrot cake bites. Just the right size with a dollop of buttercream and festive sprinkles!
Check out the red and cheetah print 50th birthday cake. The customer and I wanted to achieve height and that topsy turvy look with regular straight tiers. The cake is chocolate chip and red velvet. The "50" topper is hand cut out of fondant.
Also new is pictures of Halloween sugar cookies. There are pumpkins, eyeballs, cats, ghosts, and a spider web. They were packaged in clear treat bags with curly orange ribbon. Consider ordering some of these favors for your next event (or Thanksgiving and Christmas!!)
Last but not least is a monkey cake for a 2nd birthday. The monkey is 3-D cake and he is holding a number 2 and bunch of bananas. I tried to think of a bad monkey joke to insert here, but I can't. The cake was chocolate chip. What a fun one that was!
Off to finish cleaning up party wreckage and on to the next cakes! Check back next week for a Halloween and fall themed birthday cakes!

Resurrection of the Cake blog!
Hi everyone, I decided to bring back the cake blog. New this weekend are three cakes...The first was a variation of the football and grass cake. Check out the personalized hand painted plaques. I can add a custom team logo or special message to your next cake...The football part of the cake was chocolate, with a vanilla grass cake. The grass is piped buttercream icing.
The other two cakes were for a joint sisters' birthday party. The girls were turning 4 and 6 - and they are big fans of Barbie and the Bumblebee Transformer. The details on both are hand painted fondant. Since I paint it with food coloring, everything is still completely edible. The Bumblebee cake is strawberry with buttercream, and the Barbie cake is chocolate chip.
Check back next week for lots and lots of new cakes, including a spooky Halloween number!
