Naked Cake with Candied and Sugared Berries

Summer’s here! The kids are out of school and tis the season of eating outdoors, and enjoying fresh berries and lighter foods!  So when I got asked to make a summer cake for Merry Mag Summer I decided to do a naked cake with fresh berries!  This one happens to be a vanilla bean cake with a lemon buttercream, but you can go with any flavor of cake you like!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cake

I love when a client brings me a clever cake idea, I love it more when it’s a friend!  Lindsey from Frenchie Wraps hired me to make this cake for her son’s TMNT birthday party! When I dropped off the cake I got to see some of the clever things she make for the party so hopefully she’ll have it up soon so you can enjoy it too!

Gruff the Neverbeast Cake with Video

This is my MOST favorite cake TO DATE! Like in all my years of doing this I love love LOVE how he turned out. I just wish the pictures of the video did it real justice. Seriously he was SO cute (and then we ate him, he was also delicious). I was also the most scared about this cake for quite a few reasons, I wasn’t sure if it would even make it to the party table!

Sleeping Beauty Princess Cake Tutorial

I know my princess Cakes (Elsa, Anna, Merida, Rapunzel and Tiana) have been a popular series so I was excited to add Aurora to the mix!  You can use this tutorial to make a pink or blue simple dress, or add the extra steps to make this multi colored, splattered dress (Yes I know she doesn’t ever wear, or even SEE this splattered version in the movie, but it was something different and eye catching to create).
