Doctor Cake


Today’s cake was for a Medical School Graduation back in May.

It was a fun and challenging cake to make and I was so pleased with the results!

Dinosaur Gender Reveal Cake


I’ve always wanted to make a gender reveal cake, but I never found out the gender of my own kids before they were born.  And so far every baby shower cake I’ve made (there aren’t that many of them) have also been for mamas to be who don’t know gender!



But last June, I got together with some of my college friends for girl’s weekend.  And one of them was expecting.  And while she already knew the gender and had shared it with her close friends and family, I took the opportunity for a mini reveal!

I should back up a bit and mention that this is the friend who ordered the Game of Thrones/Harry Potter Mash-up cake for her and her husband’s (then boyfriend) birthdays.

This couple also ordered the Golden Snitch Wedding cake when they got married.  Also at their wedding, one of their readings was A Lovely Love Story:

Harry Potter Hockey Mashup




Today (July 31) is Harry Potter’s birthday.  If he were real he’d be 35!  That makes Harry Potter older than me and I have to say – I’m ok with this!

My friend’s son in a huge Harry Potter fan, so for his 7th birthday, asked for a cake that incorporated two of his favorite things: hockey & Harry Potter – a bit of a challenge!

Thankfully, I had Hubs on deck as my Artist in residence and he immediately sketched up some Quiddich players sporting hockey gear!

After that, this became one of my favorite mashup cakes ever!

Happy Summer!

This happy little cake was for an end of school celebration for the teachers at my son’s school!  The cake was inspired by this one at My Cake School.

Honeybee Cupcakes


I’m popping in quickly today with these happy little honeybee cupcakes!



I wanted to take something fun with me to book club, so I brought some bright cupcakes that made me think of spring!

The cupcakes are lemon cake with cream cheese frosting.  Delish!

Minion Cupcakes & Lemon Cake


Who loves Minions??



I loved the minions in both Despicable Me movies, so when my son’s Cub Scout pack asked me to make minion cupcakes for their Blue & Gold Banquet, I was thrilled.  The theme was “Cub Scouts are One in a Minion.”

It was such a cute theme with some cute patootie minion cupcakes to go along with it.

The cupcakes were lemon cupcakes baked in blue cupcakes liners (recipe below or click for a gluten-free version and a boozy version).  They were lightly frosted in buttercream and then topped with MM fondant.  I had such a blast making the faces and giving each little minion his own personality!

TMNT Cupcakes


Where are my TMNT fans?

I’ve tackled TMNT Cookies and Cake, so it’s only natural that cupcakes would be next!



For these cupcakes, I took a more minimalistic approach add a blob of green buttercream for the turtle head with a little MM Fondant mask – with coordinating cupcake liners, of course!
