My lovely friends asked if I could re-create a smash cake that they found for their sons 1st birthday photoshoot- and here it is! I love that it is so simple and classic. You don't need much when you have the cake sitting next to the cutest baby in the world!!!
Happy Birthday Max!!!
Pretty crazy about my Lily Pulitzer inspired cake and cookies for Kelly's bridal shower! Her family threw her a unique and awesome shower with quirky patterns, pop colors and sophisticated swirls. The buttercream cake was simply white with lots of texture and a perfect gold pineapple cake topper! For the cookies, i created all different kinds of shift dresses inspired by Lily patterns that I love!
I had a request from Lisette to make her niece-to-be a baby shower jungle cake--- with purple of course! This cake was a challenge for me but I thought it turned out great! I kept the bottom tier simple with a light purple zebra pattern and then added leaves and animals peeking out on the top tier, a cute baby elephant made out of rice treats sat on top of it all!
I had so much fun making this beautiful set of cookies and cake for Vanessa's husband Nik! It is Thanksgiving week- and no better time to celebrate the birthday of a wonderful husband and father! This collection was based around beautiful falling leaves, gold accents and of course the family of three PLUS baby on the way!
Happy Birthday Nik!
Football player Tim Wright has opened an amazing barber shop on Rutgers campus for everyone to enjoy. This two tier cake and collection of cookie favors was made to celebrate the great success and opening of his new shop!
Congratulations to THE WRIGHT CUT!
Janiya turns three this year and her favorite shows are obviously changing. This was a new one for me- UmiZoomi! The characters are adorable and I used them to be the stars of the cake and cookies that I made for Janiya's party. Lots of bright, fun colors- shapes- and colored sugar for everyone!
Happy Birthday Janiya!
Vanessa asked if I could make her baby girl a small smash cake for her first birthday party. We left the cake white so it was free of any food coloring and dyes-- and added pops of purple and teal to the shell decorations surrounding it! The mermaid topper was purchased from Etsy and given to me by my customer! Adorable!
Happy Birthday Rachael!
Mikey turned one year old and his parents threw him an amazing party all about clouds and classic hot air balloons. The color scheme was red, white, sky blue and dark blue. For this party I created a smash cake for Mikey with a custom topper made out of rice treats and fondant. All of the party styling and set up was done by Kimberly Paige Events!
Happy Birthday Mikey!
Haley has made the great accomplishment of graduating with her education degree from Rutgers and her mother wanted to throw her a graduation party with some customized treats! For her cake, I made a red velvet one tier cake with custom decorations on top to incorporate her degree! My favorite part was drawing on the chalkboard of course! The cupcakes married back to the cake with handmade topper decorations.
Kenneth had his first paintball party with his friends and wanted a special cake for his day. His Grandmother asked if I could make this paintball cake inspired by a great image that she found on Pinterest. The topper is made with rice cereal and the paint splatters have colorful gumball centers!
Happy Birthday Kenneth!
Brittany wanted to celebrate her 25th birthday in black, white and of course gold! She is just crazy about glitter, glitz and glam- so this was the perfect theme to hit off her quarter of a century celebration. This was my first attempt at confetti-quins and airbrushing them gold! I love how it came out and I had so much fun with the new technique. Looking forward to more glitz projects
to practice on!
Happy 25th Birthday Brittany!
Brittany is surprising her husband on his 30th birthday with a cake that is all about him. I draped black fondant on this cake to create a realistic looking motorcycle jacket with a patch of the Portuguese Escudo to personalize the cake for Bruno.
Happy Birthday Bruno!
Another birthday is here for Janiya and she is celebrating with every little girls' favorite character- Minnie Mouse! Janiya is turning two and for her special day, I created a two tier Minnie cake with an embossed scalloped fondant skirt and of course- polka dot details. The cookies below also were made with classic Minnie images. I happened to find an adorable image of Minnie holding a birthday cake in my search and I used this to create the sketch cookies.
Happy 2nd Birthday Janiya!
