Mini Cheesecakes for Sweet Swap

I always look forward to Sweet Swap & trying everyone's creative sweet treats! This time, I made some mini cheesecakes with blueberry topping  :-) The best part is taking home pieces of everyone's creations and eating it over the next week (well, maybe more like a couple of days...I have a sweet tooth!).

Happy 21st Birthday Ribbon Gift Cake Present

I received a call from someone in Fredricksburg to order a cake for her cousin who lives in the area.  She informed me that her cousin was attending culinary school and she wanted to surprise her with a cake (so that she wouldn't have to make her own!).  I hope she liked her surprise birthday cake with her favorite colors! Theme: 21st Birthday Cake: Vanilla Gold Butter Cake Filling: Vanilla Buttercream I baked the Vanilla Gold Butter Cakes, filled with 3 layers of Vanilla Buttercream filling for each tier (there is a 6 inch and 8 inch cake).  Then I covered the 6 inch cake with gray fondant, then added a thick pink ribbon around and white pearl buttercream dots at the base of the cake. Next, I covered the 8 in cake with purple fondant, then added the diamond lattice for the purple cake, then added a thin pink fondant ribbon and white pearl buttercream dots around. I made a large pink ribbon using half fondant half gumpaste so that it hardens and holds it shape w

Topsy Turvy Alice in Wonderland Baby Shower Cake

I received a request to create a Alice in Wonderland Baby Shower Cake.  She requested a taste testing to convince the other ladies helping to host the baby shower to order a professional cake.  Weeks went by without a response, so I figured they may have decided to make the cake themselves, as they were considering.  However, a week before the baby shower, I finally received a response that they wanted me to create the Topsy Turvy Alice in Wonderland Baby Shower Cake.  Had so much fun making this cake.  So here it is!
