Tinkerbell’s - Silvermist Fairy in a Princess Dress!

I love making doll cakes; it’s like playing dress up when I was a little girl. Changing the looks of my dolls was a habit, so I was very excited to work on this order….
I loved the way my costumer changed the theme of one Tinkerbell’s Fairy and gave her a Princess makeover for a day! We also changed her colors of Blues to Pink’s for a girly look!
To keep cost down the customer purchased a sheet cake and brought it to me the night before the event. I made the doll cake and attached it to the single layer sheet cake. I also incorporated the dolls color schemes to the sheet cake so it can look as one. Cake Pops in Princess Theme were made to be given out as favors.
Doll cake was a vanilla cake, strawberry filling, and BC frosting decorated with pearl beads. Cake pops were both Vanilla and Chocolate covered in Pink and White Chocolate and decorated with princess items (crown, wand, castles).

RIO Cake for David’s 5th Birthday

I was a little short on time but I think the turn out as a good one. The little man wanted a RIO cake so my first vision was to make gum paste characters but sadly didn’t have the time to work on them. I aimed to free drawing one of my favorite scenes in the movie; when Blue met Jewel for the very first time. I knew I want to have tropical colors, and wanted more like a sketch look. So was pleased with the outcome and so was the little man. He loved his cake!
This is a double layer sheet cake, strawberry and banana filling, with vanilla BC frosting.

Piñ̃a Colada Cake with Malibu Rum

Hey there!
I have been kept from the kitchen these past few weeks due to my father being very ill; but, I’m back in session. I was able to complete a few little projects here and there so let’s get updated….
Father’s Day ‘11
This year we decided to all reunite and spend some time with my father since things didn’t look so bright for him or for us. Pretty much made it simple…We ordered Lunch!  I was selected to bring in a dessert (happens to me A LOT by the way) and I wanted to make something a little different and with a lot of flavor. I kept thinking.... Tropical but yet had to have Coconut (dad’s favorite).
