Malted Chocolate Mini's

These little triple chocolate mini cupcakes came out looking so cute and SO chocolaty! Again, they were the triple chocolate cake and thick chocolate ganache frosting (more like fudge) with a malted milk ball on top.

Triple Dipped Chocolate Mini's

Yummm, my heaven! The cake is triple chocolate (chocolate cake with cocoa and chocolate chips), and the frosting is a thick chocolate ganache dipped three times. Sprinkled on top is pink sugar for valentine's day of course!

More Mint Chocolate

Another version of the mint chocolate mini's. Did a swirl of buttercream on these with some crushed peppermints on top.

Pink Lemon Drops

Lemon cake with pink lemon fondant glaze. Very dainty and girly. Next time I do these I will add three little white flowers to each one.

Peppermint Cuppies

Mint Chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream and white jimmies.

Pink Swirls

Classic white cake with pick buttercream frosting. Chocoholic that I am, it is quite amazing that these were my absolute favorite out of all of them! Just simple and perfect.

Cupcakes for CMM's Valentine's Candle Light Party

My boss asked me to make 9 dozen mini cupcakes for the Valentine's party on Saturday. I made a whole bunch so I'll post pictures of them all then tell you about the different kinds. They turned out super cute! I absolutely love making cupcakes. They behave very nicely ;)

Spring/Valentine Cookies for KD's design firms.

Brandon's Mom, Kim, asked if I could make 9 dozen sugar cookies for her to give to her design firms for a little valentine gift. While I love sugar cookies hopefully these are the last for a little many!! I have to get a picture of how she packaged them up on here. Apparently it was very cute!

More Cookies...


I tried out a new sugar cookie recipe this weekend and it ended making so many cookies! I tried out some royal icing recipes and techniques and in general they came out nicely and tasted very good! The icing set perfectly making them easy to pack or store or ship or whatever. Very fun.

Hot Rod ("Rat Rod") Cake

My first car cake... And first real cake order! It was for a man's 30th Birthday cake. I think it turned out well considering. It is white almond sour cream cake with vanilla buttercream and homemade marshmallow fondant.
