Wedding Dress Cake

I did this one for a friend of mine for her wedding shower - I told her about a year ago that I would make her wedding cake and had never done a fondant cake before...so, she is basically the reason I started doing cakes!  Her wedding is in August and I will be doing a CAKE POP wedding cake for it!!

Strawberry Macarons: new addition to my repertoire!

The more blogs I read, the more I see people making macarons.  They look so pretty and delicate that I just HAD to try.  Not as easy as one might think.  I probably watched about 10 different tutorials, all with different information.  Finally I found one that worked, but you MUST pay great attention to detail!!  Anyways, I think my second attempt turned out pretty well!

Hummingbird cake

This cake was made for a young girl who loves hummingbirds...and Cake Boss - I was quite flattered she wanted me to make her cake!

Wedding Cupcake Tower

I am so thrilled that I finally got to do a wedding!  This one was for a kindergarten teacher who I worked with this year.  I think it turned out pretty well!





Pink Ruffle cake

A very girly buttercream ruffle cake I did for a good friend of mine! It also had edible glitter all over the top but it doesn't show much in the pictures.



Grade 7 Graduation Cupcake Tower

Well of course I HAD to do something special for my very special grade 7 students!!  So I made this cupcake tower for their grade 7 graduation this month.  Our school kind of makes a HUGE deal over this event, and this year was probably the best, I would have to say.  Our theme was "Masquerade" and the colours were purple and red (obviously).  My super artsy students made the cupcake pics.


That's me (on the right) with the other two lovely grade 7 teachers!
 Not bad, I think!
