Cakes, Cakes, and More Cakes

A Piece of Cake

There is just something about cakes that just make you smile.  Maybe its the decorations, frosting, or simply knowing there is this spongy goodness just waiting to be sliced into and devoured.  How they come in so many shapes and sizes, delicious flavor combinations, and endless decorative styles.

I’m still quite the traditionalist and love buttercream decorated cakes but it is also fun to play around with fondant, it does give it that smooth and professional finish almost like a canvas ready for your imagination!

Here are a few of some of my favorites that were really fun to create.

This was one of my first cakes I made professionally.  It was for a big 50th bash with over 100 people!

pink purse cake covered in fondant and decorated with flowers

This was the first cake I entered into a cake competition and the first “so-called” sculpted cake.  I’m not sure where I got the idea for the cake but it turned into something quite unusual.  Much to my surprise it won 2nd place in the sculpted category!  It was a pure thrill, surprise, and very exciting!!  I was inspired to keep creating cakes for years to come.
