This was for a combination birthday party where we lumped both of my boys together, since we will be moving cross-country soon and my youngest wouldn’t have a party with his friends if we waited till his actual birthday. My oldest picked the theme, and then astutely convinced my littlest one it was his idea, [...]
For my (now) six-year-old daughter’s birthday this weekend. Many firsts on this cake! First stencil ever, first peonies (was actually quite disappointed that my peonies looked more like roses than they should have … oh well, live and learn!), first use of impression mat and “inking” of cake board … lots of fun! She wanted [...]
Love how cyclical trends are! A little friend of ours wanted a smurf birthday … she didn’t want smurfette, she wanted a smurf, but she wanted pinks and flowers and dstuff (she’s 4, and you can’t argue with a 4-year-old! ). So this is what I came up with! LOVE the carved novelty stuff!

Made this fun cake for a friends 4-year-old’s birthday party!
Eric Anthony’s cake (and party) was a hit! Bottom tier: Hot Chocolate cake (cocoa cake) with dark chocolate ganache and chocolate chip cookie dough filling. Chocolate chip cookie dough filling is one of my favorites – use just non-perishable food items. No eggs, for example. We surrounded this with Rice Krispie Treats shaped into the [...]
For a friend’s hubby who adores the movie, turning 30. The quote is one of Doc Brown’s, “30 years, a nice round number” … hot cocoa cake with marshmallow mousse filling, dark chocolate ganache, and fondant panels all around. The birthday boy is a redhead, so the driver in the mini DeLorean is red-headed.
