Baby Elephant Cake


I made this cake for a baby boy baby shower waaay back this past fall.  While I’m not overly thrilled with how the fondant work turned out (if I recall, humidity was a big issue that day), I am still in love with the baby elephant topper!

Orange Sunrise Cupcakes

This recipe originally appeared on my first blog, Amy's Cooking Adventures, in July 2012.


These cupcakes are the kid-friendly counterpart to the super delicious adults-only Tequila Sunrise Cake.  !

The cupcakes fit right in with the Luau fun and beachy party d├ęcor.  Plus, the guests loved the swirled colors inside the cupcakes.

Mini Cheesecakes with Spiked Blackberry Sauce




I love cheesecake, but usually don’t want the temptation of having an entire cheesecake around!

Mini cheesecakes are the perfect solution!  Plus, add a little spiked berry sauce and these are the summertime patriotic treat!

Dr. Seuss Hat Cake




Keeping on with my little Dr.Seuss theme, today I have a super fun Cat in the Hat Cake!

This fun cake was for a baby shower for a Momma-to-be who is expecting twin boys later this summer!

To make this cake, I baked a full recipe of White Almond Sour Cream Cake (tinted sky blue).  I baked the cake into 4 ½ 6-inch cakes and 1 ½ 8-inch cakes.  After carving the hat shape a bit, I added a layer of buttercream, and covered it in MM Fondant. The stripes were painted in with some watered down gel food coloring.

Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes





Peanut Butter Cups are seriously one of my favorite candies.  No joke – at Halloween, I sneak all of the peanut butter cups out of my kids’ candy buckets when they aren’t looking and stash them away (hey – they have plenty of other candy!)

Tequila Sunrise Tiki Cake

This post originally appeared on my first blog, Amy's Cooking Adventures, in July 2012.


Last year, a friend of mine planned a big backyard luau for her husband's 30th birthday!


For the party, I made a fun Tiki Cake!  And because plain old cake is boring, we had a fun Tequila Sunrise Cake.   The cake is delicious, with a moist crumb that absolutely melts in your mouth.  The tequila buttercream is also amazing, especially when paired with the salty pretzels rods! 

Oh and those Hawaiian shirt cookies?  Check out Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle for an amazing tutorial!

Mint & Pink Trellis Cake




Graduation season is officially here!

For my second graduation cake, the graduate wanted a sheet cake with mint green and pink and her high school’s logo on it.  She knew she didn’t want a traditional graduation cake, she just wanted something pretty!
