evelyn’s fourth birthday

I may be a little biased, but my niece is one of the best people I know. I’m totally lucky that I get to spend so much time with her and have been able to see her develop into a little lady. She’s smart beyond her years and is beginning to understand and learn so…

let them eat cake

“Let them eat cake!” That was the theme a few weeks ago while I co-hosted a cupcakes and cocktails themed party. With my trusty bff by my side; there was fun to be had, cake to eat and drinks to sip. My co-host was the lovely Tyler of tyler-not-taylor. She presented and demonstrated three delicious…

north pole cake

This cake is definitely on the naughty list. Chocolate cake, vanilla buttercream, dark chocolate peppermint sauce and candied bark play nicely in this decadent dessert. Indulgent, yet refreshing with a whisper of peppermint here and there. Perfect for any Holiday party or just because!

lauren & tyler’s wedding

So a few months ago in June, I blogged about my very first cake tasting for a potential wedding cake client. With the wedding date set in October, the task seemed a lot further away then it actually was. Naturally, time moved way too quickly for my liking and before I knew it- it was…

no trick, just treats

Most consider Halloween to be the spookiest holiday, but I like to think it’s the sweetest. I had so much fun decorating these cupcakes for family and friends. I typically shy away from bright colors, I’m drawn to more neutrals and pastel colors, but these were just too fun. The yellow cake is Betty Crocker’s…

an evening at bayvue

A few months ago, I was asked to participate in my first styled shoot as a cake vendor. Usually, styled shoots consist of a lot of setting up followed by a lot of taking down. However, the moments in between are just the best- everything is perfectly positioned, models are posing and the photographer is…

succulent cake

So I really wish yall could see the picture of the cake I made for Tyler’s birthday last year. It was a total Pinterest fail. The taste was there, but in the midst of whipping together my favorite champagne buttercream frosting I got a little heavy handed with the pour. We can blame this on…

first attempt at fondant

Besides aesthetics, I’ve never understood the appeal of fondant. The texture is weird, you certainly don’t want to eat it and why cover a perfectly good cake with something you throw away? [End rant] Anywho, I’ve been asked to make a cake for not just any old styled shoot, but a HUGEEEE shoot, and a…

ombre rosette smash cake

My mother has made every single birthday cake for me since I was born. I’m pretty sure this is how I developed more than just a sweet tooth, but entire mouth of sweet teeth. When Tianna asked me if I’d be interested in baking this sweet child’s smash cake for her first birthday, I jumped…

basket weave cake

  This cake was made for my boyfriend’s neighbor that mows his front lawn from time to time, just because. He felt compelled to do something nice in return for her kindness, and what is better to receive than a cake yall?
