Ladybug 1st Birthday

This 1st birthday cake request had a ladybug theme.  I created a three tiered cake with ladybugs, daisies, leaves, and grass.  The client wanted a smash cake for the birthday girl, so I made a removable ladybug for the top of the cake.  The cake is chocolate with vanilla frosting and the ladybug is yellow cake with vanilla frosting.  I also made yellow cupcakes with chocolate frosting.  The cupcakes were decorated with ladybugs and leaves.  All of the decorations are made with sugar paste.

Set up at party

Nora's 1st Birthday - Dots, Circles and Stars

This cake request was for a sweet little girl's 1st birthday.  Her mom gave me one of the plates she purchased for the party and I designed this cake based on it.  The cake is vanilla with vanilla frosting, two tiers and each tier is two layers.  I also made a "smash" cake for Nora with the same design.

When delivered I added some star shaped suckers to the top..

Piece of Cake

I made this cake for one of my favorite friends for her birthday.  After the half birthday cake I made a few weeks ago, I thought it would be fun to make a piece of cake instead.  This is what I came up with....a huge piece of cake on a plate made of cake.

The plate is a layer of cake with a 3 layer piece of cake on top of it.
