oh baby!

I had the honor of creating some baby shower cupcakes a few weeks ago for the one and only, Elizabeth Henson. She’s the sweetest boss-lady-photographer-mentor-momma-hug giver-just-down-right-awesome lady! I’m so delighted that they have another bundle of joy to join their adorable family. Honestly, I don’t know how she’s keeping it cool about not knowing the…

eat your heart out

Well, today is Valentine’s Day. And we all know what that means… chocolate goes on sale tomorrow! This little holiday always gets a bad reputation, but maybe that’s why I like it so much.

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
