It was an honor to make the cake and desserts for my friend Cathy's soon-to-be baby boy! Cathy wanted the soft blue colors with accents of metallic gold and small touches of red throughout! I kept the cake bottom tier with clean lines and was inspired by the waves at sea for the top tier!
It was nice to take a break from the gold and create this elegant silver and white Communion cake and cupcakes for a brother and sister. The classic quilting detail and simple ribbon cross topper make this cake so delicate, sweet and elegant for a special day.
Congratulations Diego and Mia!
I have always been obsessed with ladybugs and now I got to make my first ladybug cake for my cousin! Mia turned 1 year old and she was dressed as the cutest little bug for her birthday party. I made a cake that resembled the wooden signage at Mia's dessert table.
Happy Birthday Mia!!!
Juliana's first birthday was full of amazing spring flowers, fresh grass and of course fun desserts to go with it! I created a dessert table with a four layer pink ombre cake, tulip and flower head cookie pops, floral cake pops and "grass" cupcakes. I love how bright and full of life this theme is for a little girl!
Happy Birthday Juliana!
A classic cake for a classic theme! Melissa loved the little mickey feet and traditional red, yellow and black colors for her sons first birthday cake. This three tier cake is topped off with fondant Mickey ears and a bubbly "1" year old topper! The smash cake was made to coordinate in buttercream of course!
Happy Birthday Carter!
I really enjoyed creating this dessert table for Alexys on her first birthday! Little ballerina is the sweetest theme for any little girl. Below you can see the steps I took to create my first gumpaste ballet shoe topper. This was my favorite part!! I used bows, slippers, gold pearls and metallic details to accent all of the sweets!
Happy Birthday Alexys!
Seriously... how sweet is this!
Minnie is the perfect, classic theme for a 1st birthday party and I made a cake for Brielle that is as sweet as her! The fondant ruffle detail and adorable pink bows make this cake the best table centerpiece!
Happy Birthday Brielle!
What better way to celebrate than with Costa Rica, soccer, your favorite beer and an awesome cake! I absolutely loved making this one! The hand painted Imperial logo and soccer ball cake were my favorite touches!
Happy Birthday Ferney!
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!
