I love how this tea party cake turned out! I was given free reign to design a cake for a 4th birthday tea party (from an amazing customer ;) )and came up with this design. I made the tea pot out of rice krispy treats and fondant and everything else was buttercream with fondant details. I must say this is one of my favorite girly cakes so far.

I made these cute little Wufs for a groom's cake. The groom's mom ordered them for her son who graduated from NC State and sent me pictures of the bride's dress. These are non edible and are great presents since they can be kept after the cake is already eaten :)
A few weeks ago I made this wedding cake for a sweet bride and her husband. The pictures I took turned out kind of dark since the lighting was not great...I think this girl needs a new camera ;) The cake was much prettier in person! I love how it turned out and the wedding was at the beautiful Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill. It was a gorgeous venue! Every other tier was triple chocolate and white almond with raspberry filling.
I recently made this cookies and small cake for a beach wedding. I love how the adirondack chairs turned out. To make them, I found a pattern (google) to make real ardirondack chairs and scaled it down to be "cake size". It was a little confusing figuring out how to put the chairs together, but I eventually figured them out. It was fun using gumpaste to make a wood working project ;) The cake was a small 6" round cake and the bride and groom cut into that and had the cookies for their guests. I couldn't find a starfish cookies cutter so I made it. You can check out how I make my cookie cutters here !

This cake was pretty exciting for me to make since my hubby and I JUST entered into the 21st century and got our first smart phones (iphones)!! I tried to get the dimensions exact on this cake so I measured mine and multiplied it by 4.
I'm lovin' these little minions lately. After I made this cake, we ended up having a family movie night and I watched Despicable Me2 for the first time....it was too cute!
This cake is a 3-D cake that I made with several 8"round cakes. It is covered and decorated with fondant.
