Happy Birthday Mercedes!

The cake and cupcakes were ordered for a huge 15th birthday celebration. The cake is an 8 inch double chocolate sourcream with chocolate mousse filling and iced with american buttercream. The cupcakes (150 of them) were half double chocolate sourcream iced with white buttercream and half white almond sour cream iced with pink buttercream. Everything was decorated with 3 shades of pink.

We rent cupcake stands - the above stand can hold around 150 cupcakes or layers may be removed for a smaller number (the setup above has the top plate removed). We also rent smaller size cupcakes stands starting with stands that hold 13 cupcakes.

black and white

The cake and party favors were ordered for a black and white themed 21st birthday celebration. I have done this cake design for birthdays and baby showers but I think the black and white version is my favorite so far. The cake is white sourcream with cookies and cream filling (to go along with the black and white theme). The favors are white chocolate with the message "Get Crunk".

Happy Labor Day

red, white, blue star cake

This cake was ordered for a "meet the neighbors" Labor Day pool party. The star shaped cake is a 2 layer cake (chocolate sour cream), torted with 3 layers of filling (chocolate mousse), and iced in buttercream. This cake would also work well for a Memorial Day or 4th of July celebration and would go great with these favors.

customer feedback:
Dana, Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful cake for my daughter's baby shower. It was absolutely beautiful and everyone thought it was so cute, but they also loved the way that it tasted. Which isn't always the case. Quite a few people asked me about who did it and I gave them your card. Again, thanks for all your hard work, skill and creativity. Bev H
