Giant Cupcake!

Debra Hanna Uncategorized Leave a Comment

What’s better than a regular cupcake?!  A giant cupcake “cake”!  I was asked to do this for a recent graduation party.  I also made the matching regular size cupcakes!   Beautiful colors they picked out.  Perfect for the “rose” design!  

Honey, butter and Vanilla!

Debra Hanna Uncategorized Leave a Comment

I recently made some honey butter cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting.  The moist cupcakes have the best flavor – I mean how can you go wrong with honey and butter?!  I decided to decorate these with a little honeybee and took some melting chocolate and poured it over some bubble wrap and let it harden!  Looks like honeycomb!  I thought these cupcakes were just the cutest things.  Delicious, too!    

Fresh Cherries!

Debra Hanna Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Hi everyone!  Let me say that I am so happy that fresh cherries are in season!  They aren’t available until late May and don’t stay in season long.  I am going to bake as much as I can using these little fruits while I can get them. Chocolate and cherry!  One of the best and most classic flavor combinations!  The filling in these cupcakes is a homemade cherry compote.  The frosting is made using cream cheese, heavy whipping cream and a little powdered sugar for sweetness.  I was going for a “black forest vibe!”  And of course, I had to dip the cherries on top in some semi-sweet chocolate!  Delicious!    

Harry Potter!

First, let me say that I remember when I first got my website going, I insisted on having a blogging section because I was going to blog, blog, blog, every day.  Not so easy.  I have tons of stuff I’d like to blog about, but there never seems to be enough time.  So for now, I’m going to use this section to post pictures of stuff I do that you can’t really put in my store since each custom cake is uniquely different in theme, size, price, etc. So here’s a custom cake I did recently.  The theme obviously was Harry Potter.  I have never, ever in my life seen any Harry Potter movie or read any Harry Potter Book.  This is actually the second time I’ve been asked to do Harry Potter themed desserts.  For this customer, they wanted cupcakes, too! Chocolate cupcakes and a marble cake were the …

Mickey Mouse Smash Cake

Well it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything!  Fortunately I have been extremely busy with orders from new customers and quite a few orders from repeat customers!  I am so thankful. Last weekend I was asked to do a Mickey Mouse giant cupcake Cake!  It was going to be a cake for a photo op for a little boy’s 1st birthday.  It was a lot of fun doing this cake and I was really pleased with how it came out.  After the party was over, his mom sent me the cutest picture that was taken as they let him have at the cake.  I love, love, love when customers send me pictures of the cake being enjoyed by those the cake was made for! The picture the mom sent had the square around the little boy’s face and I couldn’t edit it out!  Anyway, I think it’s an …

Princess Cupcakes!

So do you have someone in your office that has a Birthday coming up and who considers herself a “Princess”?  Or perhaps she was given that nickname for any number of reasons?!  That’s what happened here at the office where I work my normal 9 to 5. We all love her to death and the “Princess” nickname was given as a compliment and in fun.  We’re all pretty easy going around here so it’s easy to tease!  My co-workers asked me to make cupcakes for her birthday and with a princess theme.  This is what I came up with: Classy enough for the office while getting our little jab across!  It was fun and she loved them!  If you have a “Princess” in your office and need cupcakes, please email me!  I’d be happy to help. Thanks for reading!

Rosettes!

Hi Everyone and Happy Monday! It’s so crazy how things can come in spurts!  This past week, I had four large orders that  all involved decorating with Rosettes!  I can go months and months, or even a year, without having anyone ask me to do a decoration in Rosettes. One was for a baby shower!  My client actually wanted 4 dozen cupcakes decorated with Rosettes and then a giant cupcake “cake” in the same design for the centerpiece.  I think they came out pretty nice and my client was pleased, which is the most important thing! The color theme was rose, pink and cream with gold.  The mom to be was happy, too, and I was told she was brought to tears! Another cake I was asked to do this past week was for a 40th Birthday Celebration.  It’s hard to tell in this picture but this cake is huge …

Cowboy’s Fans!

Good afternoon and Happy Monday!  Hope everyone had a great weekend! So I was asked to do a birthday cake for one of our co-worker’s who is huuuuuuuuuge Dallas Cowboy’s fan.  She is a true fan and loves them whether they are winning or losing.  So of course my boss asked that I do something in a Dallas Cowboys theme.  I picked a triple layer chocolate with a chocolate buttercream.   Here’s the cake… We had the cake here at work after lunch and she really loved the Cowboy’s theme!  She was happy!  But what’s really funny is that she is such a fan, she didn’t even really want to cut the cake at all.  Of course, she had to because there were about 15 of us wanting a piece after singing an off key version of Happy Birthday to her.  So Lori started cutting the cake and serving piece by …

Custom Cakes and Cupcakes

Debra Hanna Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Hi everyone!  When I was first coming up with ideas on how I wanted to set up my on-line store with my awesome website designer Greg (shoutout to Company 50), I had a hard time trying to figure out what to put on my site!  And when it came to the custom orders and pricing, there was just no way to really establish a set price or actual cake or cupcake to put in the “store” because they are all so different.  I thought that posting pictures of some of the custom desserts I get asked to do would be a great idea! So I’m going to start with a birthday cake I was asked to so this weekend.  The theme was Baby Shark Doo Doo!  I had never heard of these little guys before until just a couple of days ago.  It’s actually a YouTube cartoon/song and it’s quite …

Shannon and Susan and the Untraditional Wedding Cake!

Debra Hanna Uncategorized Leave a Comment

This past Saturday, I attended the afternoon wedding ceremony for Shannon and Susan.  I went to high school with them (many, many years ago).  It was such a beautiful ceremony and gathering of friends and family.  It was casual, but still elegant.  Laid back, but still classy.  Just all around comfortable (the Bride and Groom wore Converse)!  Glen Garza a/k/a Double G from KLAQ, was the officiator. Which brings me to the cake!  They asked me to do their wedding cake for them.  No real direction other than they didn’t want anything tiered or fancy.  In speaking with Susan, she even left the flavor choice to me.  It was clear they just wanted to be married.  They did tell me that their theme was “When Hell Freezes Over”.  I’m certain they have both said that phrase numerous times over the years.   So I started researching cakes with that theme.  A lot …
