Simply Nautical

Simply Nautical.


The bride wanted a simple cake with a touch of a nautical theme (the rope knot) and their color was navy.

5 tiers of white chocolate cake with raspberry filling and blue velvet with cream cheese filling, all with vanilla buttercream and covered in vanilla marshmallow fondant. This was probably the heaviest cake I have ever made! The bottom tier alone weighed more than the average 3 tier cake. I had to call upon help when it came time to deliver it (Thank you, Andrew!).

And as a surprise for the groom, the bride wanted a small cake to display some of his interests… like golfing, cigars, Fireball Whiskey, boating, and Chihuahuas. I have to say that I really didn’t think I could pull that one off. None of these things really went together… or did they! Thanks to my talented sister, Brandy, who dreamed up the idea to tie them all together, this little guy was born!


A Chihuahua adorned with a golf cap (complete with a dimpled golf ball for the pompom), holding a shot glass of Fireball Whiskey in one paw, and a cigar in the other, while floating in the water on a life preserver! And to ‘tie’ it together with the wedding cake, I bordered it with a rope and the same knot!


Congratulations to Brittany and Daniel!

Green Ruffle Wedding Cake

Simple. Elegant. Delicious.

This 5 tier wedding cake was created based on a photo the bride sent me. 3 tiers of vanilla buttercream-filled vanilla cake for the bride and 2 tiers of raspberry-filled lemon cake for the groom. Each tier was coated in vanilla buttercream and covered in white fondant. The fondant alone weighed over 17 pounds!! This cake took a few days to make… especially since we lost 8 hours of power-smack dab in the middle of the project-due to a storm!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Foster!

Bernie Boop!

My birthday buddy, Bernie, loves Loves LOVES Betty Boop! So much so that we sometimes call her Bernie Boop! Bernie was having a tough year and I wanted to make her a cake for her birthday to let her know I was still there for her! So…. the Bernie Boop cake was born!

Bernie, I couldn’t think of a better person to share my birthday with!! You are one of the nicest, most compassionate people I have ever met and I am so greatful for your friendship!

Happy Birthday, Bernie!

Step Up… and Dance!

For a lovely young woman who has been dancing since she was about 5 years old…

Caitlin was coming home from college with some friends for her birthday and her mom wanted to surprise her with an Irish Step cake. Chocolate cake with raspberry filling-coated in vanilla buttercream and wrapped in chocolate! Mmmm! Since dance has been an important part of her life through the years, I included a famous quote from a song that I later found out her family adores: “When you get the chance to sit it out or dance… I hope you dance!”

Happy Birthday Caitlin!
