Happy 1st Birthday Princess Hannah!

Inspired by the party decor, this 3 tier cake is the perfect ending to a princess birthday party! What more could a little girl ask for?

Life's a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios

Taking inspiration from a fabulous cake created by Rosebud Cakes I made this giant bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios for my husband's 35th birthday. He eats them every single day, so this cake seemed totally appropriate! Inside is rich chocolate fudge cake layered with Oreo crunch buttercream, finished in white chocolate fondant and all edible accents (yes the Cheerios are real! After making 22 of them, I gave up!)

Griffin's 1st Birthday Cupcake

Griffin is turning 1 and his mom wanted to incorporate the cupcake party wear theme into the cake design. Based upon a design by Butterfly Sweets this 2 tier chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream and fondant accents and coordinating cupcake "smash" cake will be the hit of the party!

Happy 1st Birthday Griffin!

1st Knight Birthday

What kind of cake would be suitable for the bravest of little boys? Why a castle of course - complete with a knight in shining armour and a chocolate dragon!

The knight was made from polymer clay in order to be kept as a memento, the rest of the castle is entirely edible, including the chocolate dragon with gelatin wings.

Here is what the client had to say:

Hi Lisa, Thanks for personally delivering Nathan's birthday cake. It was a
huge hit for young and old a-like. They loved it, especially my little ones. My
husband, Ken wants to hang onto these memories....he's gone as far as preserving
the chocolate dragon, (thank G*d you made the knight out of clay) and plans to
put it into a shadow box. Nathan will always be able to look back at this
special keepsake. Thanks for making his first birthday so memorable. Karen
