Sweet 16 Birthday Cake

This Sweet 16 was designed by the Birthday girl herself! (It was quite a design I have to say!)

Bottom tier has a vine design and black bow, Topsy turvy tier has the same pattern on her dress with purple airbrushing on half the cake, round polka dot tier, and top tier has zebra stripes and a sweet 16 topper with a crown.

All vegan chocolate cake with vegan chocolate ganache.

Happy Sweet 16 Adreauna!

Isabelle's Sleeping Beauty Cake

Happy 2nd Birthday Isabelle! Her favorite movie last year was Pinocchio; this year it's Sleeping Beauty-- one of my favorite movies of ALL TIME! So needless to say, I was excited to be making this and even watched a few clips of the movie on youtube for "research". (I love the "Once Upon A Dream" scene when Aurora is dancing with the owl and then Prince Phillip cuts in :)

The 2 tiered cake features Princess Aurora, Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather dancing in the forest and the castle on the top tier. The cake is adorned with a #2 topper, fluffy clouds, and some sparkle!

I leave you with some Sleeping Beauty Trivia: did you know that even though Princess Aurora is the main character she appears in the movie for less than 18 minutes?

Happy Birthday Amora!

A portrait of Amora for her 7th birthday!

The peanut butter honey cake was decorated with light cream cheese, carob + peanut butter dough, carrot slices, and peas. 100% dog friendly :)

Dr. Seuss Themed Cake

A Dr. Seuss themed birthday cake!

Happy Birthday Francis!

Vanilla cake with raspberry preserves and raspberry buttercream filling.

I leave you with some wise words from Dr. Seuss:
"Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You."

"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking a tlife through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities."

"All the turtles are free- as turtles and, maybe, all creatures should be."

"I do not like green eggs and ham I do not like them Sam I am."

Snow Engagement/Birthday Cake

This cake was made for a couple that got engaged on the same week of both their birthdays, which was only a few days apart. They love snowboarding and skiing as well as their black lab. The cake is adorned with figures of them, trees, and sanding sugar snow.

Congrats to the happy couple! I love this photo of them making a wish :)

Sushi Cupcake Toppers

Sushi toppers for mini cupcakes! I made some California Rolls (crab, avocado, and cucumber inside), Kappa Maki, Tekka Maki, Salmon and Tamago Nigiri. I used them to adorn mini vegan cupcakes. The cupcakes are presented on a wooden sushi plate with chopsticks.
I had so much fun making this (even each little grain of rice) I might have to try to make a Spicy Tuna or Rainbow Roll in the near future!

Happy Birthday Victoria!

A birthday cake for my friend Victoria! She owns a cute, mint green vespa, which became the inspiration for her cake.

Happy Birthday Victoria! Hope this year brings you much happiness! Next year, you get a sloth cake :)
