Baby Shower Cake

This last weekend I made a cake for my friend Jahana's baby shower. The cake is a white almond sour cream cake with a strawberry filling. For this cake I decided to try and make my own marshmallow fondant because the store bought kind does not taste very good. Although I like working with the store bought fondant better, the taste of of the marshmallow fondant made it worth it. I spent the entire weekend baking and babysitting and ended up not having enough time to make the favors for the shower. Mindy came to my rescue and did a wonderful job on the favors.

Thank you to everyone who helped me last weekend! My mom spent over an hour cleaning the kitchen while my dad and I delivered the cake. Thank you for all your help!


I made these for a baby shower last weekend.  They were delicious!
Wait until you see the cake Kim made for the shower.

Happy Birthday Chris!! :)

Today was my boyfriend Chris' birthday, so of course I had to make him a cake. Chris is obsessed with diving so I decided to make him an ocean cake.

We went to dinner with Chris' family at an Italian restaurant in Seal Beach and had the cake for dessert :)

Happy Birthday Chris!!

Happy Birthday Connor!

Last week my little buddy Connor turned 5 years old and I was asked to make his birthday cake! I have been Connor's babysitter for a few years now and love his family dearly. Connor wanted his birthday party to be a Backyardigans theme so I decided to make all of the characters from the show out of fondant and gumpaste. This was my first time making any type of characters and I had SO MUCH FUN making them! So thank you Heather and Connor for letting me be a part of your special day!

Here it is!

And so Caramel Cup, please do not be disappointed anymore... I have finally completed my first post. (now if you could only get the other girls to do the same we might be able to get people to actually read it besides ourselves.)

Esther's Wedding Shower

After baking all day Saturday, and frantically rushing to get everything done by 1:00 on Sunday, we finally finished our preparations for Esther's wedding shower! We made absolutely delicious desserts. Seriously the best desserts I have ever had.
Check these beauties out...along with our food labels in action!
Of course we had to have food too...

...and drinks...
....and the most magnificently marvelous cake around.
Can you believe Kim made this...her first time with fondant!
More pics coming soon of the bride and her friends enjoying the shower.
