From me to you

Petite white chocolate carrot cake. Bronzed with an edible luster dust. Think this one is kinda cute.

Chocolate decadence- Chocolate cake with a chocolate moose frosting, decorated with chocolate curls and melted chocolate. Even though this cake sound like an overload of chocolate, the mouse itself is quite light and creamy, complimenting the rich German chocolate cake underneath.

'Hawkeye Celebration'. This is a fun Iowa themed graduation cake. I made the Tiger Hawk out of fondant and the cake it self is a white chocolate frosting. I didn't have a cutter so I drew the image on waxed paper, placed it on top of the fondant and cut it out with a fine craft knife.

Cocoa Polk-a-dot boutique

This boutique was created for a chic wedding. The rose was made of gum paste and the cake decorated with apple green and tiffany blue ribbon. The cake itself was German chocolate bliss with chocolate ganache frosting, satisfying those cocoa fanatics. The polk-a-dolts on the middle tier added a little girlie touch.

Family Tree

My first attempt at the tree trunk was to pipe icing down the side. As you know perfection is a kick in the butt for an idealist and it just didn't look right. So instead I used pieces of creme filled chocolate Pirouette that resembled the bark of a tree and placed it on the frosting. I used beads to cascade around the bottom and faux flowers in the top of the cake. I then sprinkled green sugar on the bottom of the cake as moss.

Cakes for all Occasions

I make all my cakes from scratch. Flavors that are most populare are: vanilla, chocolate, and red velvet. I use jam between the layers and do custom decorating. I frost with butter cream and fondant. All decoration are edible.
