Disney Princess Party Birthday Cake

I made this cake for an adorable little girl’s birthday party yesterday. A few weeks ago when I asked her what she wanted on the cake, she told me she wanted “the princesses”. “The princesses?” I asked, as I thought to myself Cinderella, Belle, Snow White… I should be able to do that… Especially if … Continue reading

Our Wedding Cake

Last weekend was an exciting one for me. Sure, a lot of people get excited about celebrating New Year’s Eve. But this was not just any New Year’s Eve celebration for me. Not only did I have the honor of standing up as a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding, but she also asked me to … Continue reading

18 on the 18th: Dachshund Birthday Cake

Happy Golden Birthday to my “little” sister, Kelsi! I can’t believe that she is 18 today!!

Decorated Cakes

I saved back pictures of a couple cakes I have made for orders in the past month to post this week, knowing that I would be traveling in North Dakota on a trip for work. From a hotel room I cannot do much in the way of baking or cooking! Our whole group is staying … Continue reading

Earth Day Cupcakes

I will be the first to admit that I am no environmentalist. One of my college roommates was. For example, I would be scrubbing the kitchen counters (I always like my kitchen to be spotless) and have the hot water running so I could go back to the sink and rinse without turning the water … Continue reading

Brett’s Birthday Cheesecake

Brett’s 25th birthday was one week ago. In honor of his day, I made him a cheesecake, which I guess is one of his favorite desserts? He says he doesn’t like cream cheese, and yet, he seems to love the mashed potatoes I make with cream cheese, the chip dip his mom makes with cream … Continue reading
