Teal Floral Cake & Recipe for Orange Cake


My mom happened to be in town on her birthday this year, so I had a chance to make her a birthday cake!  And I got to use my new favorite a cake tool – a rose cutter!

It’s totally fool proof and officially that first time I’ve been able to successfully make fondant flowers (I’m not getting anything for talking about this product – it’s just awesome & I want to share it with everyone!)!! 

The rose cutter (the little roses on the cake) boosted my confidence so much, I even made that big flower by hand!

Favorite Cakes: Redone

Sometimes I get the opportunity to remake some of my favorite cakes.


Usually it happens when a friend seeing ones of my cakes and wants one just like it!

Here are a few I’ve gotten to remake recently!

Mario Kart Cupcakes


I’ve wanted to make Mario cake/cupcakes for ages.  But I’ve never had a reason to.

So I was super excited when I finally got an order for Mario Kart Cupcakes!!



The mom of the birthday boy ordered the characters.

So I made a board to look like the beach level and made all of the Mario Kart boosters out of fondant as cupcake toppers.

I absolutely love them!!!  Here’s the whole set!

Brush Embroidery Poppy Cookies


I had some extra cookies and frosting leftover after making my Simple Cross Cookies.  It was also very close to my Grandma’s 89th birthday, I knew I wanted to make her something special that she could share with her friends.



I was a bit limited by the colors I had available, but once I started thinking, I realized that it was the perfect time to experiment with brush embroidery with royal icing.  For brush embroidery, some medium thickness icing is piped onto the cookie.  Immediately, a damp paintbrush is used to pull the icing away from the lines, leaving a delicate brushed look.

Once I started, I quickly realized that the colors lent themselves to poppies!  I love the contrast of the brushed poppies on the black and white backgrounds!


Oh, and Grandma loved them, so that makes me even happier!

For the last day of school, I was asked to make 200 sugar cookies for the end of the year celebration/retirement party for the school’s principal!

Cub Scout Crossing Over Ceremony Cake



This cake was for my son’s Cub Scout Crossing Over Ceremony. 

That’s when, after a full year of hard work, they “cross over” to the next rank.  It’s an awesome ceremony and the kids are so proud!

This year, I was asked to make a cake representing each of the cub scout ranks, Tiger Scout, Wolf Scout, Bear Scout, and Weebelo (Dude was crossing from Wolf to Bear).

Chocolate & Peonies


A couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of making a beautiful wedding cake for a couple!

The bride asked for a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, decorated with fresh flowers.
