This was the wedding I’d looked forward to for a long, long time.  My oldest daughter was marrying the man who was the light of her life.  I made them a small cake, enough for 50 people and they got the rest from a local warehouse store.  When I asked them what design they would like I was told to do what I wanted, they trusted me, so my ideas for designs changed several times but finally settled on the one pictured here.  The photos are by Macy Marie Photography and I love what she does with angle and color.  10718258_660496520715725_2103031244_o 10723094_660496524049058_218400695_n 10723342_660496527382391_24516035_n

Wedding Cake!

Beautiful shells and flowers on the cake.

My sister’s wedding cake!  I spent months trying to figure out the wedding cake gift for my sister and her fiance.  Since they both love the water and was having a lake-front wedding, this is what I came up with.  They loved it!  Everything on the cake was edible, including the shells and except the topper of course.

And the cupcake…..well because who doesn’t want a yellow cupcake with a chocolate peanut butter filling, topped with a caramel buttercream, and on top of that a mixture of peanuts and pretzels and drizzles of chocolate and caramel?  

 

 

West Liberty’s Eulenspiegel Puppet Dessert Theater

Chocolate Cherry Cupcake with Swiss Buttercream and a Truffle

Chocolate Cherry Cupcake with Swiss Buttercream and a TruffleI visited the Puppet Theater for the first time. I’d heard about it like everyone else in West Liberty, but I’d never investigated it. I received a phone call on Thursday asking if I could make a cake or cupcakes for the two upcoming Dessert Theater and of COURSE I could!  I ended up making a chocolate cupcake with a cherry filling.  On top was a layer of ganache.  I topped that with a Chocolate Cherry Swiss Buttercream.  The ones I took on Friday night were topped with a little blue flower and the ones I took on Saturday night was topped with a chocolate cherry truffle.

West Branch Dessert Auction

2014-02-08 15.32.09

I was asked to make a dessert for the West Branch Dessert Auction.  I decided on a cake and a dozen cupcakes.  I donated a Neapolitan Rose cake, top layer was chocolate, the middle vanilla and the bottom was strawberry.  I decorated it with buttercream roses, matching the inside layers  I made a duplicate for a friend’s birthday cake so I was able to take a photo of the inside.  I have to admit, it was delicious.  

This cake was a Neapolitan Rose cake; inside was chocolate, strawberry and vanilla layers of cake each separated by buttercream and topped with a thick layer of Chocolate Ganache and decorated with a red chocolate heart.

Hats!

red hat

I made a full sized hat for a friend whose sister was a Red Hat Lady.  It was a lot of fun and quite cute, unfortunately none of the photos turned out.  Since I had left over f0ndant I decided to try a different way of making a hat.  I made this little two serving hat, which would translate into a bigger hat if needed.  I found this one was cuter than making a thin cake into the brim and I could put waves into the brim.

Birthday Visit from Oscar and Big Bird

Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch

My grandson turned three a few days ago and I wanted to try my hand at something special for him.  I came up with a Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch cake.  He loved them!!!  

The feathers on Big Bird were made of chocolate and the fur on Oscar was made from Buttercream.  It was Delish!
