I have been making cakes for the Carpenters for over 6 years now. The first cake I was commissioned to make was a fish cake for Spencer's 17th Birthday. Well today, I got to make Spencer's wedding cake. His bride had an image of a cake that she loved, so I replicated it for her. The floral and the wood plank really gave the cake a rustic vibe that went so perfectly with their wedding. I keep laughing at the fact that I spent so long learning how to make my frosting super smooth, straight and seamless, and now the trend is to ice the cake with some kind of pattern that looks like it doesn't require any skill, but it takes a surprising amount of skill to do it well!

After making her mommy's birthday cake just a few days before, I got to make a simple vanilla birthday cake for Cozette's second birthday. Her mom had a vision for a simple rustic looking swirled vanilla cake with fresh flowers on top. It was a simple and sweet little cake. And how gorgeous is the backdrop for my little cake?

This cake was a gift for my friends 30th birthday. She got to eat some of my chocolate cake at a family birthday party and has had my chocolate cupcakes as a Christmas gift, so she let me know early on that she wanted one of my chocolate cakes for her birthday. I had a lot of fun trying to make this chocolate cake a little bit more fun and feminine. I think the mixture of pink and silver sprinkles really did the trick! Happy Birthday Eliana!
