We created this tie dye cake for a 12th birthday celebration - lots of girly colors and lime green peace signs. The cake is iced with buttercream and airbrushed for the tie dye pattern.

10th Birthday Black and Pink Paris Themed Cake {children's birthday cake}

Black and pink Paris themed 10 birthday cake with Eiffel tower 

 We created this Paris themed cake for Jillian's 10th birthday. The cake was designed to coordinate with the birthday girl's dress that was light pink and black. The bottom tier is a light pink piped buttercream ruffle design and the top tier is decorated with polka dots. We added a silver Eiffel Tower along with some flowers, bows and pearls. 

 We've created several cakes for this family and they loves that we specialize in buttercream iced cakes with fondant accents (instead of an all fondant cake). This cake is mostly buttercream with only a few fondant accents. One of my favorite cakes that I've done is Jillian's 6th birthday flip flop cake - the colors were just so bright and fun.
