Jacob's Baby Shower Cake

This cake was fun to make! It was a new theme for me so I was excited. The customer wanted black and white polka dot cake with red accents to match the theme of the firefighter baby shower. So this is what I came up with. The top tier is white almond sour cream cake and the bottom tier is chocolate cake. =)

Happy Birthday Mayte!

This cake was ordered by one of my really good customers. He wanted a cake like the one that I made for my co-worker, Wanda, recently but he said that I could change it up if I wanted to.   =D  So I decided to change the colors and the shoe a little bit. You can see Wanda's cake here. The cake is strawberry with cream cheese filling. =)

Ariana's Birthday Cake

There was a REALLY big mix-up on my part with this cake. The original cake that the customer requested was this one. So I made sure to write down all of the details and I even drew myself a little picture of the cake as a quick reference for me for when it came time to decorate it. The customer then changed the order altogether and requested something completely different...which was totally fine except for the fact that I completely forgot to update the changes in my cake order book and it totally slipped my mind that she had even made the changes! So when it came time to make the cake, I made it like the picture that I drew with the details that I had written, and not like the cake that she really wanted. I feel terrible about the mix-up...I've never done anything like that before. Luckily, she was a really good sport about it even though I know that she was disappointed. On a positive note, I will make sure that this never happens again! Both tiers are chocolate cake with cream cheese filling.

Baby Shower Cake

The mommy-to-be wanted an exact replica of a cake that I had made before so that's what I did. =) All 3 tiers are butter cake.

Bailey's 1st Birthday

Little Bailey's birthday is in February so she got a Valentine birthday party! =) This cake is a design that I have done before but with different colors. You can see it here. Both tiers are white almond sour cream cake.

Little Valentine's Day Cake

My customer sent me a picture of a cake to replicate so this is not a "Dusty original", as my sister calls it. Haha! I do not know who to give credit to for the design, but it's really cute. =) The top tier is chocolate cake with chocolate filling and the bottom tier is white almond sour cream cake with strawberry cream cheese filling.

Marilyn's Angry Birds Cake

 The inspiration for this cake came from a photo sent to me by Marilyn's mom. I'm not sure who to give the credit to, unfortunately. I added a couple of my own touches, including the topper that says "Happy Birthday". I wanted to add more touches here and there but I didn't have the time that I needed to do so. Little Marilyn was happy with her cake so I was super glad about that. =) Both tiers are strawberry cake with buttercream filling.

Happy Birthday Leah!

Leah's mom sent me a picture of a cake that she wanted. Well, she actually sent me about 5 or 6 pictures and then finally landed on this one. I told her that she was going to have me hand rolling fondant balls forever with this cake having not just 1 but 2 rows of ball border on each tier! Haha It did take quite a long time but I think it came out cute. =) The top tier is strawberry cake and the bottom tier is white almond sour cream cake.

Wanda's Burlesque Cake

I made this cake for my co-worker, Wanda. We share a passion for high heels! =) I usually bring Wanda my cake tops after I bake and level my cakes, or "Dusty's top cake" as she calls it. Haha! Her favorite is my chocolate cake so that is what she got. Happy Birthday Wanda! xoxo
