Everything Cakes and More
I have a serious addiction to cakes and everything that comes with them! I have been baking and decorating cakes for almost 12 years now for all kinds of occassions! I like to make all kinds of confections with baking and candy making that I will post here too. I mostly create for family and friends but if you have someone or are someone who likes what you see and would like a specialty cake, I would be glad to help! I also do lots of cakes for friends of a friend too. Please have a look around and I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I do!

A lady in my ward asked for a gummy bear cake for her daughters baby shower. There is a story behind the gummy bears that is a family joke, but I also think she just really likes gummy bears! I tried to make a giant gummy bear with a honey jar as a mold but forgot to grease it so it stuck to the jar! Oops! The modeling chocolate bear is plan B. I still think it turned out cute, and I love the sprinkles!
One of my friends invited us to her husbands 50th birthday party. It was a surprise party but she wasn't going to make him a cake because he is diabetic and can't eat it. I balked at that because you can't have a birthday without a cake! So I volunteered to make him a sugar free cake. And of course there were cake balls for all as they are one of her favorites!
For my nephews 8th birthday he wanted a Hot Wheels cake of some sort. His mom called and just said that cupcakes wouldn't cut it and she couldn't do anything more than that. I pretty much could do what I wanted but had to incorporate a car somehow. I really like the track in the shape of an eight.

It was my mom's birthday and I was working on cake pops for my friends baby shower (which I regrettably forgot to get a picture of) and my dad called. We were meeting for lunch and he wanted to know if I could bring a cake. I think this was the fastest cake I have ever put together! I immortality mixed it up and got it in the oven. Then let it cool while I ran to the store for powdered sugar and balloons(for the shower). Then I came home, mixed up the frosting, leveled, frosted and decorated it in about 25 minutes. How's that for fast!
For my daughters 7th birthday we were looking online for cake ideas and we came across this cake called a rainbow cake. I was immediately intrigued by it and said to myself, "how do you do that?" I had to know. By the wonders of the world wide web we found out exactly how to create this colorful cake. She wanted to put the rainbow on the cake as well with the giant gummy butterflies, but the best part about this cake is when you cut into it!
