I got a great deal from VistaPrint; you should check out some of the specials they're running!


Madelyn Clifford's 3rd Birthday

Madelyn turned 3 on January 5, and I was so excited to make this sweetheart her birthday cake! 

Madelyn's mommy, Allyson (and her sister Stephanie) used to babysit my sister and me, so we were both very excited to spend the day with this awesome family.

Blowing out candles is a very important part of birthday cakes!  It takes lots of concentration.

Licking the candles is the next important step.

The cake was strawberry with strawberry filling (this is becoming a favorite of my clients!) and buttercream frosting.  The argyle pattern was piped on in Madelyn's favorite colors - pink, white, and BLUE!

 Madelyn's little brother, Preston, had to join in, of course.  Love his beautiful blue eyes!

So, Happy Birthday sweet Madelyn!  Thank you for letting me help celebrate your big day.  Can't wait to come back for Brother's in April!

P.S.  Thanks to Tara for the awesome pics!


Madelyn's Birthday Preview

Madelyn's 3rd Birthday in its entirety will be posted as soon as the photographer gets her act together (Sister is headed back to school this week so it may take a month or so!).  But until then.....



Happy Birthday Mommy!

So this cake is a little out of order in when I made it (October!), but my dear, sweet, BUSY sister just got the pics to me.  She's an amateur photographer and in graduate school... the two don't jive very well as far as time management goes!


My mom turned 40-something back in October and we had a small family celebration for her.  Being the baker in the family now, I was commissioned to come up with something yummy.

This is a 3-layer yellow butter cake with chocolate Fluffy Bunny filling (a homemade chocolate whipped cream, basically.  I just renamed it!) and vanilla buttercream frosting.

The flowers and monogram disc were an experiment in fondant, and turned out pretty well!

It was a little guy - used 6" pans - but ended up being close to 7" tall! 

Coming soon:  Madelyn Clifford's 3rd Birthday  :-)
