Dinosaur Cake

Hi guys!  I just wanted to post a picture of this cute little dinosaur cake.  I had never made a dinosaur before.  This particular request was for a little boy’s birthday.  He wanted strawberry cake with a dinosaur on top and the decoration had to include walnuts!  This is what I came up with!  His teeth are made from grains of rice!  My client loved it and so did her son!

I’m Ready for Spring!

In just a few weeks, we’ll be setting the clocks forward one hour!  More daylight in the evening and I cannot wait.  This also means warmer weather, blooming plants, flowers and trees, and of course, light and fruity desserts!  One of my absolute favorite flavor combinations is lemon and blueberry!  You cannot get more spring than that and this cake here is absolutely moist, delicious, sweet, tangy…not to mention beautiful.  Hits all the right notes! Another favorite spring flavor is lime!  Fresh lime juice and lime zest is a must! Here’s a cherry limeade cupcake taken after the refreshing drink you can get from Sonic!  Yummm-my!

  Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!  So I’ve been doing quite a few vegan desserts lately.  I am not vegan by any means, but do appreciate all diet preferences.  I’ve honestly got to say that my vegan cupcakes and desserts are soooooooooo very tasty.  You can’t even tell that they are vegan.  Recently, I decided to try making vegan baklava.  If you’re not familiar with baklava, it’s that deliciously phyllo dough layered, pecan-y, honey, butter drizzled deliciousness that is more popular around the holidays.  I made it vegan by using vegan butter and substituting the honey with blue agave and a touch of pure maple syrup.  The feedback has been 100% positive.  Here’s a picture: My vegan cupcakes have been requested pretty frequently as well. Any form of chocolate has to be the favorite.  This is my vegan chocolate with pomegranate.  There is actual pomegranate juice in the batter . This …

Giant Cupcake!

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!

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!

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
