Anniversary Cake

Cannoli Cake with Ricotta Filling and Whipped Cream Frosting
Made for Donna and Jim Vanderhoff as an anniversary gift, they never had a wedding cake so I thought it would be fitting to make their favorite cake and the bride wore black and white polka dotted dress on her wedding so that was a memory I wanted to include

"Blueberry Pie with Chocolate Icecream" Cupcake

"Blueberry Pie with Chocolate Icecream" Cupcake
Vanilla Cupcake with Blueberry Pie Filling and Chocolate Mousse frosting designed after my love for the real blueberry pie with chocolate icecream that my dad turned me on to as a kid, and a dessert that he and I always have

Super Mario Bros 4th Birthday

I made a Super Mario Bros Cake and Cupcakes for a 4 yr olds birthday party.  The cake is chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream (the birthday boy's favorite) and has white buttercream on the outside but red buttercream in the middle to match with Mario.  The cake has an edible icing sheeet that I ordered pre-made online (they are reasonably priced, come in every possible design you can think of and easy to work with)  Then I made cupcakes with the leftover batter and topped them with a homemade cupcake topper (made of cardstock) to showcase all the characters especially the Princess who's not included on the image of the cake.
