Wedding Cake

I had the privilege of making a wedding cake for a friend recently. I really enjoyed working on it and was pleased with the outcome. It looks like fondant, but is actually all buttercream, smoothed with the Viva paper towel method.

Math Baby Shower

My sister-in-law Laura is a math teacher. For her baby shower, I made baby blocks, but with math symbols instead.

Basket of Flowers

To celebrate our Grandma's birthday, Laura & I made a basket of flowers cake. It was 3 layers (chocolate cake, marshmallow fluff, vanilla cake, peanut butter, chocolate cake) with a chocolate peanut butter butter cream basket weave. Yummy!

Another Farewell

We've had too many of these at our church lately! This time, the happy couple is moving to Spain.


Some friends of ours moved to Tennessee, so I made this cake for their last Sunday at our church. They were excited about moving to their new home with a long flat driveway (which really doesn't exist in Pittsburgh), and gardening & fishing.

Finally Fondant!

I finally made a fondant cake! It wasn't as difficult as I was expecting. The cake was 3 layers. All white cake, 1 filled with lemon curd, 1 filled with raspberry jelly. Yummy.

Mothers' Day

My sister-in-law and I always try to make something nice for our mother-in-law each year. She is so good to us that it's just a very small way for us to show our appreciation. This year we made a bouquet of roses. They were mini cupcakes skewered into a vase. The leaves are white chocolate formed on toothpicks.
