Cake - Baby Shower Tiered Roses

Hello Everyone!  Thanks for stopping by again.  I have another tiered cake to share with you!  This cake was for a baby shower and there are so many details.  Let's start with size: the cake is a 6", on top of a 10", on top of a 14" on top of a 16" cake board.  This cake can serve between 30-40 people, depending on how it is cut.  And let me tell you why.  Only the top two tiers are actual cake!  The mother-to-be really liked the look of the sample cake however, only expected about 40 guests.  So let me let you in on a little secret - the bottom tier is actually foam, decorated in buttercream!  You get the height of the cake, and the desired look, but at a fraction of the cost, and definitely less leftover cake.  Do not get me wrong, I would love to bake extra cake, but realistically, there is only so much cake a person can eat.  So! If you have an event and do not want to spend as much...foam is definitely an option!  Okay, now about the cake details.  The top tier is strawberry cake, and the second tier is white cake.  The decorations are edible and made from fondant, and yes, I made the baby booties!  The cake design of the top and bottom tier are hand piped buttercream swirls that look like roses, in varying shades of pink.  The design is carried over into the vanilla and strawberry cupcakes seen on the table as well.  The monogram on the cake is made with a patch of fondant and royal icing. Hope you enjoyed this post.

Cake - Valentine Wedding

Valentine Wedding Cake!  I am so happy that I got to put this cake together for my co-worker and friend.  This is a two-tier fondant covered cake trimmed with ribbon. The top tier is made of chocolate and chocolate buttercream.  The bottom tier is strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting.  The cake is topped with an arrangement of artificial flowers that sits in a foam core covered with fondant.  The scrollwork on the fondant was handpiped by me, of course!

Cookies - Raspberry Linzer

When I saw these on a TV show, I just knew I had to make them.  They are so buttery and delicious! I cut down on the sugar just a bit by using sugar free raspberry preserves, but you can't even tell the difference!  There a couple of firsts here - the first time I've made a cookie without using eggs, or baking powder, or baking soda.  And the first time I've made a sandwich cookie.  I'm thinking these would be good with a bit of orange zest as well.  I have a feeling these will get eaten up pretty fast!

Cake - Gothic Masquerade Party!

I am going to go ahead and call this my cake of the year!  I have done a few other big cakes this year, but this is the biggest. The theme was a Gothic Masquerade Party at a REAL castle in Bellville, Texas.  The cake above is a two tier cake, the top layer was pumpkin with cream cheese filling, and the bottom was chocolate with a chocolate with a chocolate cream filling.  The entire cake was then covered in vanilla buttercream.  The decorations are all edible and made of fondant.  Happy 40th Birthday to the birthday girl and thank you SO much for choosing me to make this awesome cake!

Check out Newman's Castle in Bellville, Texas!

And I dressed up a little for the event...

Duo - Spiderman!

COOKIES AND CUPCAKES!  For a little boy's birthday party, an order of sugar cookies made to look like Spider-man's face, and two kinds of cupcakes: red velvet with cream cheese frosting, and chocolate cupcakes with a cream filling, topped with chocolate buttercream frosting.  The cupcake toppers are completely edible and handmade by me!
