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!

Planes cake

Sept. 28th, 2013- I made this fun cake for my nephew's birthday. My little four year old was in love with it and convinced that it was really for him and not his cousin. Such a fun movie and a great cake! Who wouldn't want their own Dusty Crophopper on a cake!?!

Despicable Me

Sept. 3, 2013- This fun cake was for my niece's 5th birthday. The new Despicable Me 2 movie had just come out and she was in love with the minions!


Cupcake polka-dot cake

June 29, 2013- A cupcake cake just the right size for a two year old on her special day!

Zebra Stripes

June 30th, 2013- This cake was for my daughters 9th birthday. She wanted zebra stripes and neon pink. I added the zebra lounging on the top just for kicks!

Neapolitan Cupcakes

June 16, 2013- This rockin' recipe came from the cookbook, "Your Cup of Cake" by Lizzy Early.
I picked up this little jem from the library after seeing it in a Deseret Book ad and wanted to see what it was all about. Turns our she has lots of fun flavor combinations, including this Neapolitan! Chocolate & vanilla cake with a strawberry buttercream frosting. Delish!

Chocolate Chip cookie dough cupcakes

June 16, 2013- I got the recipe for these from "Your Cup of Cake". I got the book from the library and immediately wanted to try every recipe. I'm one of those weird people who love to read cookbooks and can spot a good recipe when I see one. Since we have a ward dutch oven dinner tonight I thought I would give these a whirl and let me tell you, they are deee-lish! I will be trying out the Neapolitan cupcakes tomorrow so stay tuned.


Evelyn's 1st Birthday

June 12, 2013-I made this cake for a neighbor who's daughter just turned one! She wanted a little cake for the birthday girl to be able to dig into and then a sheet cake for family attending the party. The small cake is confetti with vanilla buttercream. The animals are fondant. The sheet cake is chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream.

Superhero Cake

June 5, 2013- I made this fun cake for my nephews 2nd birthday. It is yellow cake with chocolate filling and covered in fondant. I don't love the taste of fondant much but it sure does look nice!

Coral fondant stripe wedding cake

June 31, 2013- This is a beautiful wedding cake done for a neighbor and his sweet fiancé. They went crazy with the layers- bottom layer is vanilla cake with chocolate frosting; middle layer is chocolate cake and chocolate filling; top layer is white cake with raspberry filling. Covered in buttercream and fondant stripes. It turned out super cute if I don't say so myself.

Is that Carrot Cake???

May 12, 2013- When my six year old son saw this cake he said, "Mom, is that a carrot cake???" How ever did you know? This one was made for my family's Mother's Day feast but surprisingly it was made with my dad in mind. I made a favorite chocolate cake for the girls(which I sadly forgot to take a picture of) and this carrot cake for dad, as it is one of his favorites! I haven't always cared for carrot cake but I have now made this one a few times and it is growing on me. And of course it's covered in cream cheese frosting! Yum!

Lyndsey's cupcakes

April 29, 2013- These cute little cupcakes were made for my cousin for her 25th birthday. She is not a frosting lover so she asked for confetti cake with whipped cream. She asked and I delivered! She's still a kid at heart.

Doggy Birthday Cake

March 15, 2013- I made this cake for a neighbor's son. He brought over a picture of his dog and wanted his black dog and another with brown spots on his cake with dishes of food. He also wanted the cake to be cotton candy flavor! It was very sweet but certainly tasted like cotton candy!

Curious George Birthday

This cake was fun to make and very nostalgic. Leo decided he wanted a blue cake with George on it with balloons. Here's what we came up with. To make it blue we did a jello poke cake, which my mom used to make for me and my sisters for birthday cakes when we were young. This is where the nostalgia comes in. He wanted it blue so we used blue berry jello, where as I remember always getting lime or lemon, but the results were the same. Very colorful, moist, and delicious! I filled it with whipped cream, iced with buttercream, and George is made out of gum paste.

Max's 10th Birthday cake

Jan. 19, 2013- This cake is for my son's 10th birthday. Like all boys his age he loves to play video games. The hot game we got for Christmas was Skylanders. It's all the rage around our house! So, he got 5 new characters for his birthday but, surprisingly, didn't want them on his cake, but wanted the XBOX console and controller. It's made of marble cake with chocolate cream cheese frosting. Covered in fondant. This was fun and fairly easy to make and he got a kick out of it, although he told me he didn't like his name on it. Hmmm...maybe it takes away from the authenticity (He! He!), or maybe ten is the age when you no longer want your name on your birthday cake!
Photo to come...for some reason I can't attach the photo at this time:( So sorry!
