Bella's 1st Birthday

All 3 tiers are strawberry cake with buttercream filling. Crown, bow and star are made of gumpaste. You can't see it in the picture unfortunately, but the star on the crown and the one on the wand and also the whole name plate have sparkly iridescent edible glitter on them and when the light hits it, it's so beautiful and sparkly! I wish the camera would have captured it. =/ Bella's mom came up with the design and I think she did a great job!

Alizae's 1st Birthday

Top and bottom tier are strawberry cake, middle tier is white cake. Gumpaste bows and the hat is styrofoam covered in fondant with gumpaste ears. My mom thought the cake turned out so cute I think she wants one just like it for herself! =D

Hilda's Cupcake Tower

6" + 40 cupcakes
This was my first request for cupcakes so I was a little nervous about doing them. It was trial and error but I think I learned a few things for next time! White almond sour cream cake for the 6" and the cupcakes were chocolate and vanilla. =)

Happy Birthday Garrett!

This is my nephew, Garrett. He lives in Washington State and wanted me to make his birthday cake when my mom and I flew up to visit them. It was going to be too much of a hassle to bring all my cake making tools on the plane with me so I decided to make it in my own kitchen in Houston and take it with me on the plane to Seattle. Pretty much all of the little balls around the bottom of the cake had fallen off into the box by the time I got the cake to my sister's house and also the top of the star had broken off. =/ So I mended it the best that I could and here it is! It's white almond sour cream cake with vanilla buttercream filling. Covered in Satin Ice fondant. Happy Birthday buddy! =)

Itzel's 1st Birthday

When Itzel's mom said she wanted an elephant on the cake, I just wasn't sure if I could do that! I pulled up every picture of a fondant elephant online that I could find! I made 2 elephants and decided I liked this one better so here she is! The body is made of rice crispy treats covered in modeling chocolate and the arms, legs, head and ears are all gumpaste. The cake is yellow butter cake, filled with buttercream. Covered in yummy chocolate fondant. =)
