Pink and Zebra Birthday Cake

This cake was for Crystal's 40th Birthday! It was based off another design that the client had requested- I added the dots, squiggles, and glitter "40" on top. I also did the zebra stripes smaller/thinner than I normally do, per the original cake, and I think it turned out really cute! The cake is a 6" and 9" white with buttercream filling and frosting. 


Wanted to thank you again for the cake. Crystal loved it and everyone commented on it and asked where I got it. I dropped your name/business so hopefully you will get some more clients. Thanks again wonderful job

Pastel Yellow Green and Pink "Damask" Baby Shower Cake

This 6" white cake with fresh strawberries and buttercream filling was a request to have the same look as the "Pink Damask Baby Shower Cake" but with these super cute colors! I love how they came together on this cake. It is covered in a pale yellow fondant, airbrushed with a light green and then piped with a matching green buttercream. The border has light pink fondant ribbon roses and a matching light pink "Eily" on top. 

Tangled Cupcakes

Here is 2 out of the 5 dozen cupcakes for Livia's 4th birthday party with a "Tangled" theme. (Rapunzel) The cupcakes are white, confetti (with sprinkles to match!) and chocolate with colored buttercream to also match the plates and cups. The little fondant braids, crowns, 4's, flowers etc are all made from fondant.

"Hi Leah!  Just wanted to thank you again for the cupcakes you made for Livia's birthday.  They were absolutely adorable and delicious!  We received so many compliments on them (and gave your name to several people)!  Hope you had a great weekend!  Thanks again, and good luck getting your store going.


Eagle Scout Cake

Last weekend I had the immense pleasure of not only making the cake for, but also attending, Cliffy's Eagle Scout Ceremony! I had a great time and can't wait to have a little Eagle Scout of my own one day ;)
The cake was 6" 9" and 12". Top tier- yellow cake with chocolate buttercream filling, buttercream frosting and covered in red fondant with stars imprinted all around. The middle layer was a chocolate chip cake (white cake with mini, semisweet, and dark chocolate chips baked in) with buttercream and fresh strawberry filling. And the bottom layer was a chocolate cake (4 layers!) with 2 layers of chocolate buttercream filling and one layer of buttercream. The badge, logo, and all other details are made of fondant.

Psychedelic Cake

I am calling this the psychedelic cake, because well, I'm not sure what else to call it! It is based off a cake that can be found on the gallery of my website. I have to admit, the original cake I made a very long time ago when I was first getting started- so I wanted to do an "upgraded" version of the original cake. The fondant is a "tie dye" technique over an 8" square chocolate cake with buttercream filling. The rest of the details- flowers, swirls, dots etc are also made from fondant.

Funky Zebra Baby Shower Cupcakes

These cupcakes were based off the design of the invite (can be seen below in collage photo) for Samantha's baby shower! I absolutely loved the invite- so funky & fun!! The cupcakes were a mixture of 2 dozen standard sized and 2 dozen mini cupcakes- vanilla bean, double chocolate, confetti, and red velvet. The fondant toppers and sprinkles were made to match the invite- lots of zebra stripes, bows, polka dots, and flowers.

Whimsical Roses Birthday Cake

I totally love this cake! It is for a surprise birthday party at Mira Vista for Brenda's 60th Birthday! The client simply asked for a chocolate cake with roses on it, and said I could take it from there..... so this is where I went with it! :) Buyers beware::: if you tell me I can use any colors-- I will probably use them all!! Instead of doing petal by petal fondant flowers I thought it would be cool and unique to do whimsical "ribbon" roses, and I think it turned out awesome! It is a 3 tiered chocolate cake 4, 6, 8" with buttercream filling and frosting. The flowers/leaves/vines/polka dots are all made from fondant. 

Texas Rangers Birthday Cake

This is a Rangers/Baseball birthday cake for little Weston! The cake is a white cake with buttercream filling, and green buttercream frosting in the shape of a baseball diamond. All the little baseball and "4" details are made from fondant. 

TCU Nursing School Graduation Cupcakes

Here we have 2 dozen mini cupcakes for a graduation celebration from the TCU Nursing School! I was so excited when the client requested purple colored cupcakes! I love the idea of tinting cake, and also doing "confetti" cake with sprinkles to match your theme! They are white cupcakes- dyed purple, with purple and white sprinkles baked in for an extra surprise, buttercream frosting, and purple and white sprinkles! The diplomas, nurse hats, and "TCU's" are all made from fondant.

Patriotic Birthday Cake

This red, white and blue "patriotic" birthday cake was for "Grandpap Joe's" 90th Birthday Celebration at Mira Vista this weekend. The cake was a 4", 6", 8"- all spice cake with buttercream filling and layers of fresh strawberries and blueberry fillings to keep up with the red white and blue theme! All of the little fun details, stars, and "90" are made from fondant- and yes they are all edible, and that is edible glitter on the 90 aka "disco dust"! I love how this cake turned out, and hoping Grandpap Joe got a kick out of it too!!
