Mavs themed wedding

I know I always say I won't make wedding cakes, but this was for a friend of my mom's. She got married in Vegas and had a reception here for all the family and friends that couldn't make it. The couple are huge Dallas Mavericks fans, so the cake said "Husband and wife and Mavs fans for life." The reception was on a night that the Mavs were playing in the NBA finals. This order was a lot of fun.

Pirate birthday cake

I made these two cakes back in June for a little boy's 1st birthday. It was pirate themed, so I made an island and a ship on top of the cake. Everything is made out of fondant. I had to assemble the cake at the party, so I wasn't able to get the best pictures. But you get the idea...

I also made a smash cake that looked like a treasure map. I thought it turned out pretty cute!

Playing catch up

I can't believe how behind I am on posting pictures. I guess that's what happens when you get busy :) So now it's time to play catch up.

This is a butterfly cake that I made for a baby shower. I made it bigger than I had planned, so I had some trouble getting everything onto the board. I loved making this cake since I got to use disco dust, which is my favorite thing!

These mini cupcakes were also made for a baby shower. It's sometimes difficult to come up with decorations that will fit on a mini cupcake. But these little buttons were perfect.

This cake was for a friend's son. It was his 16th birthday and she wanted to give him an awesome Batman cake. I thought it would be cool to make the city below and a spotlight with the Batman signal on top. I was very happy with this cake.

These cupcakes were made for a bachelorette party. I had so much fun making these bustiers. In case you couldn't tell, I love glitter!

This cake was made for a little boy's birthday. It's a very simple cake, but I fall in love with it more and more everytime I look at it.

I made this cake for my aunt's birthday. She dominates at Words With Friends so I thought it was appropriate to make her a scrabble piece.

These cupcakes were made for a friend of mine that wanted to surprise her sorority sisters.

These cupcakes were made for a graduation from Baylor.

And this last cake was made for a baby shower. The theme was Carter's train theme. I don't get to make many boy cakes, so I always get excited to make one. And I don't think this cake could be any cuter!

Last week's cakes & cupcakes

Last week I made some really cute cakes and cupcakes. I made these golf cupcakes for a birthday. I have a hard time with cupcakes like this, but I was happy with how these turned out.

I also made these adorable cupcakes for a friend at work. He wanted to surprise his fiance with them.

This is probably one of my favorite cakes. I made this for a special little girl's birthday. She wanted a Barbie cake so we decided to do the shiloutte. I had drew the little Eiffel Towers so they had an almost cartoon look to them.

And lastly I made some German chocolate cake pops. I've been really bad about taking pictures of the cake pops I make. But I was pretty proud of these and I thought they looked cute.

Cake overload

I've been such a slacker when it comes to posting pictures lately. So this post includes a ton of pictures from this month. And let me say, I've been a busy baker!

I made this wine bottle cake for a joint 50th birthday. I've been wanting to make one of these for a while now. It's half chocolate and half vanilla cake with buttercream icing. I painted the bottle with piping gel to give it a shiny look. I didn't think about adding the grapes until the last minute, so I picked up some fake grapes. Next time I will make the grapes out of cake balls or macaroons.

I made these cupcakes for a Dallas Stars theme birthday.

These cupcakes were made for a friend's baby shower. She wanted mini cupcakes that matched the colors of her shower. I decided to put little flowers on top. They were simple yet so cute!

My best friend and her husband created a theater group that puts on plays downtown. For the opening night of their most recent play Alice in Wonderland, I donated mini cupcakes that said "eat me."

This cake was made for little boy's birthday. It was Pokemon themed, and the cake was lemon raspberry.

I made this cake for a 54th birthday. It was red velvet with cream cheese icing. This is the first cake that I have made in the shape of numbers. It was definitely a learning process!

This cake was made for my boss' wife. I was a little nervous to pipe out the message on top, but it turned out great.

This past weekend I had 2 pretty big orders. The first was a ladybug cake. The 3 tier cake was HUGE and so heavy. But I loved the colors and design on it.

I made this ladybug smash cake to go along with it. And it doesn't get much cuter than this!

The second cake I made was a princess cake. This is probably one of my favorite cakes.

I also made a smash cake to go along with it.

And there you have it. Like I said, I was very busy this month.

Baby Shower cake

This cake was made for a baby shower. The bottom cake is lemon with raspberry icing, and the top cake is chocolate with peanut butter icing. Both flavor combinations are my favorite!

Mickey Mouse cake

This is one of the cutest cakes I've made. I made these for a little boy's 2nd birthday. The bottom cake is vanilla with buttercream. The middle cake is chocolate with buttercream. And the top cake is vanilla with chocolate icing.

Call of Duty cake

This past weekend I made a Call of Duty cake. I made the cake look like camo and added a gun and grenade on top. I made the gun and grenade out of rice krispie treats and covered them in fondant. I think it turned out great!

This week I have 2 big orders and St. Patricks Day cupcakes to make. I'm pretty excited about the cupcakes. I'll let you know how they turn out.

Paxton's cake

This past weekend I made a cake for a very special little boy's 2nd birthday. It was a comic book theme with bold colors. I was given control over the cake flavor, so I decided to try something new. I made chocolate cake with an Oreo filling. I didn't get to taste the cake and filling together, but I'm told it was a success.
Here is the Oreo filling.
And the cake.

Birthday cupcakes, Butt cakes, and Hello Kitty

The first order I had this past weekend was for a little girl's birthday. I made chocolate cupcakes with mint icing and vanilla cupcakes with raspberry icing.
The second order I had was for another butt cake. This one was a lot of fun because I got to add a tattoo with the birthday boy's name :)
The last order I had was a cake for my friend's 30th birthday party. Her best friend wanted a Hello Kitty cake, and I had been wanting to make one for a long time. I was really happy with how it turned out.

Xbox cupcakes

I made an order of Xbox cupcakes this past weekend. They were made to look like these cupcakes. I had some issues with the logo. I couldn't seem to get it right no matter how much I tried.
But I had no problem with the controllers! I had so much fun making the little controllers. They were so cute!
