Bumble Bee Cake



I made this sweet little bumble bee cake for a baby shower.

The Mama to be didn’t know baby’s gender, so the theme was grey, yellow, and bumble bees.

Piña Colada Cake {with extra coconut!}


Two years ago, I made piña colada cupcakes.  Since I’m not a huge coconut fan, I highlighted the pineapple and let the coconut take the back seat.

But when a friend recently requested this cake for her birthday, her one request was, “don’t skimp on the coconut!”

Red Velvet Cake {Bioshock Infinite Cake}


Last week was a good friend’s birthday.

I thought pretty hard about how I wanted to decorate his cake.

I knew it had to be geeky.

Last year, the theme was The Dresden Files.

After a lot of hemming and hawing, I decided to make a Bioshock Infinite cake (if you’re unfamiliar, Bioshock Infinite is a video game).  I’ve never played Bioshock myself (I’m kind of a video game dunce), but I’ve watched Hubs play and heard him and Dan discuss the game…extensively!

Open Bible Confirmation Cake


I made this cake for my neighbor’s confirmation.

We decided to make a bible cake, but without the stereotypical ugly flowers since it was for a boy.

Abstract Peacock Cake



When my in-laws were visiting last month, I made a birthday cake for my Mother-in-law.

I had full creative freedom on this one (that rarely happens!!)  So I searched through my Pinterest boards for my own inspiration!



I ended up choosing a pretty peacock cake (inspiration found here at Cake Central!)  I just love peacock feathers (in fact peacock feathers are a big part of my office décor!)

4th of July Flag Cookies


Happy July!!

Can’t you believe it’s almost the 4th?

This year, I decided to make some easy flag cookies! (See my inspiration here and here)

To make these I split a batch of sugar cookie dough in 3 parts, one (for the red) slightly bigger than the others.  One part was left alone and the others were tinted red and blue with gel food coloring.

After that, I rolled the red and white dough thin, cut them in strips with a pizza cutter and started stacking!  After the long and short red and white strips were stacked, I rolled the blue into a long log and used a knife to cut it into a square shape and place it.

Snickers Cupcakes


Do you have a favorite candy?

I rotate between a few different ones, but I always find myself coming back to Snickers.

So why not add them to cupcakes??
