Underdog And Sweet Polly Purebread Get Engaged!
Made for a wedding shower. The backstory is that the groom, a wonderfully nerdy guy who wears glasses and who is a HUGE underdog fan and the bride, fashionista, got engaged at the bodega wine bar. Cake is my favorite – chocolate cake, homemade caramel, graham cracker crumbs between layers with a marshmallow filling and chocolate ganache.
French Bulldog Golf Cake
Made for a birthday boy who loves golf and his sweet little French bulldog. The cake flavor is based on a bar shot called a “buttery nipple” ( my apologies, I don’t mean to be offensive at all- that’s just what the drink is called and so it is how the flavor is best recognized. It is a combination of Bailey’s Irish Cream and “Buttershot” Schnapps and makes for a delicious – and decidedly adult! – treat). The cake is a “remix” recipe ( cfpeoples’ Baileys Irish Cream cake recipe from Cake Central recipe site. 1/3rd or so of the Irish Cream was replaced with the Schnapps). The layers were then generously soaked with the BN combo, filled with stabilized whipped cream, frosted with Kailua dark chocolate ganache and covered with Irish cream MMF. The doggie was made from homemade MMF with Tylose powder.
Crocodile Golf Birthday Cake
My nephew was golfing in Mexico when his caddy lured a HUUUGE crocodile out of the water ( he had trained the critter to come on demand by feeding it chickens.....like ya do) ... leading to a gallery of croc golf pics. They were the inspiration for this 39th birthday cake that also features my nephew’s cherished pets: LuLu the cocker spanial and Izzy the ratter missed the Golfing but got to strut their stuff at their daddy’s party! The cake is a “buttery nipple“ cake (my apologies – I don’t mean to be offensive at all – that’s just what the “shot“ that the flavor is based on and is a drink that many CCers will recognize. It is a Combination of Irish cream and “butter shot“ Liquors- so good!}! The cake is cfpeoples’ Irish cream cake recipe from CC recipes (With about a third or more of the Irish cream replaced with Buttershot Shnapps). Her recipe is wonderful! Cake layers were then drizzled with more of the liquor combo (Definitely an adult cake!) then filled with marshmallow filling and frosted with dark chocolate ganache. Characters are from homemade fondant with Tylose powder.
Fondant Dachshunds For A Wedding Cake

Baby Dinosaur Baby Shower Cake
Kim, my wonderful “niece in law“ who I adore, chose a dinosaur theme for her baby-boy baby shower and I was honored to get to make the cake for the occasion. Baby dinosaurs were the obvious choice for the dinasaur-theme and since I had been itching to make “bubbles”, incorporated the two together. The dinosaurs were so fun to make that I ended up with more of them than cake, so went with my favorite “ fall-back” of using the cake board to tell part of the story. The bubbles are made from gelatin with a bit of disco dust. Characters are made from homemade MMF with Tylose powder and the piping is royal icing.

The “critters” and the sign are all homemade MMF with Tylose powder. Smaller decorations are MMF and buttercream. This was SUPER fun to make – thank you so much for looking!

Giant Cinnamon rolls and Giant Donut's for my donut-loving nephew. Boston cream pie , Apple spice/cinnamon sugar, chocolate- glazed with sprinkles and Lemon curd filled glazed with sprinkles "donuts" along with giant cinnamon rolls. The picture is deceiving- It kind of looks like donuts on a plate..but the "plate" is a bar table at the wedding. Thanks for looking!
Vivi's Finding Nemo/dory Cake. She's 3!!
I am a non professional baker and made this for my granddaughter. It is Sponge cake with lemon curd, stabilized whipped cream and Lemon Cream Cheese icing. Characters are gumpaste. Some MMF "grass" on the cake (I usually try to avoid fondant on the cake itself-personal preference- but it needed something). This turned out to be a bad idea..turns out a warmish room and cake with a million things stuck in it with no fondant is not a good idea (can you say "cake collapse"?). ::-) :-) !! It lasted long enough and we had fun afterwards (eating with forks straight off the plate) but definitely leaned several valuable lessons on this one. Thank you for looking!
