Delivering Cheer

I’ve been baking up a storm this weekend fulfilling orders and making a few of my holiday favorites along the way. The list included caramels, spritz, oatmeal butterscotch, Russian teacakes, fudge and more!  My husband even commented, when I crawled into bed,”You smell like cookies.”

Russian Teacakes, also known as Mexican Wedding Cookies

Thanksgiving Centerpiece

One of my favorite clients requested a fall-themed cake to be the centerpiece of her Thanksgiving table. I was happy to oblige with a design from my files that I’ve been wanting to duplicate for months! Read the full article »

Celebrating Milestones

Stef’s dad and grandpa are both celebrating milestone birthdays this October. To celebrate, she requested a 2-tier cake with each level representing their favorite interests. And, to top it all off, they both enjoy fishing, so I created a local watering hole with two fishing poles just waiting for a bite.

Exquisitely Beautiful

My newest customer requested an “exquisitely beautiful” cake for her mother’s 83rd birthday. I couldn’t help but oblige her! This is a 6-inch lemon cake with raspberry buttercream under the quilted fondant. The top is adorned with a gumpaste peony, rose, daisies and some butterflies. She’s also getting a dozen cupcakes that match the cake’s design. I hope both Margaret and her mother approve!

What’s on the Inside

When I deliver a cake, it’s not often I’m around for the cutting and serving. Just one of the great things about the Jane Eyere photo shoot is it allowed me to get some great photos of the bride and groom cutting the cake, and some pictures of the inside of the cake. Huge thanks again to Melissa Oholendt for the wonerful concept and opportunity!

I also made some chocolate cupcakes that tied to the theme of the main cake, as they were topped with sugared raspberries as well. This would be a great groom’s cake option if you wanted to provide some variety to guests, or if you were looking to create more of a dessert table.
