Cupcake Cross


I made this pull apart cupcake cake for a baby shower.

Cupcake cakes are an interesting conundrum.

The sound great in theory: perfectly portioned cake in the shape you like!

But after that it goes awry.

All the cupcakes are pushed together into the desired shape, but there are big gaps between the cupcakes (case in point: Arrow of Light Cupcakes).

Filigree Graduation Cake


Today’s cake was a graduation cake from *hangs head in shame* over a year ago!  Thankfully, I’m not that far behind posting all my cakes, but this one somehow got lost in the shuffle.

This cake was for a friend who wanted school colors (red, black & white), without the ubiquitous blobby frosting flowers (why are those always on grocery store graduation cakes?), but she still wanted it to be elegant.

I decided to keep the design simple with a fondant grad hat and piped filigree!

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!
