My son's birthday happened to fall right on Superbowl Sunday this year but he's definitely our MVP! The cake is a German chocolate cake with coconut pecan frosting and a rice crispy treats football covered with modeling chocolate.
This Harry Potter cake celebrated the 11th birthday a big fan of the series. The books were both cake, vanilla with strawberry filling, and chocolate with oreo fillin. The Snitch was rice crispy treats with gumpaste wings, the wand was modeling chocolate, and the scarf and glasses were fondant/gumpaste.
Knoxville does a Chocolate Festival each year featuring local vendors, chocolate tasting and treats. This year they added a cake competition to celebrate the theme of chocolate and/or Valentine's Day. The flowerpot is chocolate cake and the fairy is made from modeling chocolate and fondant.
The rocks were made from swirled grey fondant and stippled with a stiff paint brush, then dusted to get a realistic river rock look. The grass between them was royal icing. The watering can is fondant and although it's hard to see, it has a little bit of blue pulled sugar in the bottom for water. The fairy is planting hearts to grow love.
The young lady who helps me make cakes entered her own design in the Junior division and won, she did a really great job making a heart and flower covered chocolate tree with a young lady reading/writing love stories under the tree.
This was a company Christmas Party cake to share with a great group of people. It is a lemon poppyseed cake with raspberry filling with airbrushed layers of snowy hillsides. The trees are all imprinted with snowflake patterns and dusted. The cardinals are made from molds and dusted for shading.
Fall is my favorite season with cool mornings, warm afternoons, and chilly evenings. Time for beautiful colors, great outdoor sports, and family fun.
I work for a wonderful company who threw a Fall Fling for the employees to get together, celebrate accomplishments, discuss future opportunities, and get to know our coworkers. We cut this little pumpkin spice cake up and shared it after dinner.
When a couple celebrates 10 years of marriage, it is heralded as a
much more significant achievement these days. For this couple however,
it is no surprise. They are a very kind and generous couple who not
only live together but work together as well.

Achieving the Eagle Scout rank in the Boy Scout organization is a significant achievement so I was proud to do this cake for Jared. Jared is most interested in rock climbing, hiking, canoeing and really enjoyed his time at Philmont Boy Scout Camp.
