40th Birthday Party

This cake was made for a guy celebrating his 40th birthday, and his requested gift was a poker table with blue felt, on which he could play with the guys! Inspired by many cakes online, most notably by pinkcakebox. Inside was chocolate cake with oreos'n cream filling. All decorations are fondant, except the cards, which are real.

First Communion Cake and Cookies

This is prime first communion season, and here is another cake to celebrate. This was similar to an earlier design, but I incorporated the celebrant's initials on the cake and co-ordinating cookies.


My daughter's school holds a funfest every spring, and one of the most popular events is a cakewalk, where participants enjoy a game of musical chairs and have a chance to win a cake! This year's theme was All Star Sports, so I made two basketball and two baseball cakes. I intended to do a soccer ball and a golf ball, but ran out of time!

The black and white cookies are a new thing for me, but since a friend requested them, I did my research and saw that some people are really serious about their black and whites. I am happy to report that these beauties were spot on...crips on the outside, cakey in the centre and chocolate and vanilla in every bite!

Hawaiian Luau

My little girl has turned 4! She decided to go with a Hawaiian Luau theme this year, and between cookies for her loot bags, mini cupcakes for her classmates and a two tiered cake, complete with a look-a-like hula dancer, I was kept quite busy. The cupcakes are an egg-free vanilla recipe. The cake was one tier of banana cake with nutella buttercream and one tier of vanilla cake with orange buttercream.

Birthday Gift

Natalia recently celebrated her third birthday and when asked what theme she wanted for her party, she simply requested gifts and balloons. We paired that with her favourite colours of pink and purple and came up with this. The flavour of this confection was banana cake with nutella buttercream!

First Communion

My dear friend's son recently received his first communion. We incorporated their praying hands with rosary theme into the cake and added a bible and chalice, which were all hand sculpted. The flavours included chocolate cake with custard filling and vanilla cake with oreos 'n cream filling.
