So the worse the pictures, the worse the weather outside. Rainy days make for shadow-y pictures. Don't worry. I'm going to make a lightbox someday. Oh, and get a good camera! YAY!
Anyways, this cake is awesome. Don't lie. Its pretty epic and I dare you to think any differnt. Those are like 300 hand cut and veined tree leaves atop a hand wood-grained treehouse (with non-edible characters) atop a (non edible for structural purposes) treetrunk with a rope and fondant ladder atop a grassy treetop. Yeah, its awesome. Yes, it was outside my comfort zone. And yes, I am glad I did it because I think it turned out great.
This cake would probably feed around 50? Its hard to say because I had to cut so much cake out and shape it, but that is my guess! $160.00 because of all the epic details!
Feed about a million (okay, maybe more like 45-50). The owl is made of Rice Crispy Treats! Cost: 175

Another babyshower cake! Thanks to Melissa Fullmer Photography for the beautiful shots! I wish I could have a pro take ALL my pictures! And I finally got to take an inside shot of what goes into my cakes! This is one of the tiers, which was a white cake with raspeberry filling. The others were different flavors. A plain o' inside cake like this will run around $200 and feeds around 75.

So for those of you who don't know me very well, I am a MASSIVE Harry Potter fan. I read the books (yes, all of them) every year in Jan and I can quote potter lore with the best of them. So imagine my excitement when I was asked to make a Harry Potter cake... and that is all the instruction I got! I scoured the internet for hours looking for the perfect parts of lots of cake to incorporate into my own. I think I did a pretty good job! This cake is 99% edible - there is a skewer through the middle of the wand just for the purposes of making it look right. Even the sorting hat is made of cake!
Feeds about 45, $100.
My friend's boyfriend is obsessed with NASA. This cake was a surprise for his birthday! Its a brown butter cake with pineapple lime filling and coconut Italian buttercream icing (under the fondant!) Feeds 40.
As is, with the flavors and fillings, $100 for this cake.
Cupcakes don't get featured here much on the blog, but I actually make as many, if not MORE of them than I do cakes. These are fancy-fied piped ones (which is why I took a picture), but usually I do plain swirly icing with sprinkles. I do, however, fill my cupcakes with delicious things if requested, and believe me, you want to request! These cupcakes are filled and specially frosted, so they would be $24 a dozen!
I really need to learn how to photograph my cakes better! This looked so much prettier in person!
This awesome woman who ordered this said she was sick and tired of her husband getting her terrible birthday cakes - so this year she was ordering her own! This is a 9 inch round, and feeds about 30, unless you are doing massive pieces, then it feeds about 20. $45.
This cake was for my good college friend and co-worker, who had her baby a month early and left me high-and dry and the only person in our dept! :-) I will forgiver her though, since lil Jude is such a peach.
The bottom tier of this is actually a dummy (ie Fake Cake) but as is, it will feed about 45.
$125 with the dummy, $175 with real cake as the bottom tier (feeds about 80).

My very first Topsy-Turvy cake! I really need to start putting something for scale in these pics, because this is a pretty large and in charge cake. It is vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream!
When I went to deliver this cake, Blake, the birthday boy, asked me if I wanted to see his room. Of course I did. The walls were covered in what else? Spiderman! Needless to say, he loved his cake! I loved trying out a new technique! I am excited to take what I learned from this cake and use it on the next one!
$150 for this cake, feeds around 60 people.
If anyone can guess what all 11 cupcakes toppers are in relation to Mr. Roonil Wazlib, you shall get $10 off your order!
This is a funfetti cake and cupcakes with vanilla buttercream funfetti icing! (all homemade!)
$60 for the set!(Cake + Cupcakes = 25 servings)
So, this is me (probably one of the only pics you will see of me on here)! With my best bud Drew. It was his birthday, so I made him a cake!
If its YOUR birthday, and you want this cake, it'll be $30 bucks! Feeds about 15. But for Drew, it cost a hug and a kiss. I think I made my biggest profit EVER!
