Baptism Cake Pops

These cake pops were done for a friend's sister-in-law's daughter. She saw these brownie pops from this site, Brownie Pops and she wanted to incorporate these as favors. She wanted them to look a little chic but yet nice for her daughter's baptism. We found these on Beaucoup and they were just what she wanted.

I used my ever so popular homemade chocolate cake recipe and formed them into cake balls. I inserted a lollipop stick into the cake ball and dipped them into melted white chocolate and milk chocolate. For the design, each pop had the baby's initial, A, for Abby and some other scrollwork and dot design. For the finishing touch, each pop was bagged and tied with a white fabric. A personalized tag with an guardian angel background brought it all together.

Movie Theme Birthday

Here's a cake that attracted much attention in the month of December. I actually had a very busy December, which was good. A friend that I went to high school with contacted me because it was going to be her daughter's 11th birthday. It was a sleepover party and theme was movies. I tried to incorporate all the aspects of movies with the popcorn, movie reel, tickets, stars and the director's/scene clapper. The popcorn is real! Yes! I just had to make it a little extra special.

iPod Cake

Well, here's one cake I did for a friend's co-worker. She wanted the cake to be in shape of an iPod and it had to be pink because she loves the color pink. This is one of those things that has to be exact or else it doesn't look right. I think I did an ok job and I was so nervous before she came to pick it up. She was so happy with the results. When she brought it to the office, people kept saying how good the cake smelled and aroma of the buttercream and vanilla was amazing. So, I was happy. :)

Soo late

I know I haven't posted in a while but it's been kind of crazy. I'm pretty much like 6 months behind on cakes and other goodies I've done. I promise soon I will post pictures especially of my first wedding cake I did in December. Beautiful as can be!!! Plus, pictures of my new cupcake stand that I've been putting to good use. I've had lots of baby showers, bridal showers, and 1st birthdays. You will see them very soon.

Anabel's 1st Birthday Party

I know. I know. I'm really really late in posting this. But here it is finally. Anabel's birthday party was held at C.B. Smith Park in Pembroke Pines, FL. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time. We had a Straberry Shortcake bouncehouse, Strawberry Shortcake herself made a personal appearance, a clown that did face painting for the kiddies and balloons, and other goodies. This was a very special birthday because this was a milestone for Anabel. After everything we went through when Anabel was born, we could not believe that one year later we were celebrating her first birthday.

This is probably one of the prettiest cakes I've done to date. The birthday cake was a 10 inch and a 6 inch vanilla butter rum cake with a strawberry cream filling covered in fondant. The Strawberry Shortcake doll was also made by me with the help of 2 great cake decorating and modeling instructors that came from Peru to teach at a local cake decorating supply store that I buy from. This doll took around 5 1/2 hours or so to do and to be honest, she wasn't entirely finished. I didn't put the little white polka dots on the hat because there wasn't anytime for me. It was a busy week but one of the best birthday party.

Here I am very concentrated in trying to secure Strawberry Shortcake's head to her body.

I also made 2 dozen vanilla butter rum cupcakes w ith a dulce de leche filling and buttercream icing swirled with red coloring and Strawberry Shortcake cupcake pics in a cute cupcake stand.

Here is the birthday girl, Anabel.

Strawberry Shortcake made an appearance. With the help of my sister-in-law, Karen, we made this foam picture frames with magnets on the back and took pictures of each kid with Strawberry Shortcake. It was a cute keepsake and a memory that they could take home of a very special day.
