Cakes and Beyond

Welcome! I'm posting on this page all the cakes & desserts that I've created. All of my cakes are homemade, covered in homemade buttercream frosting, and decorated with homemade marshmallow fondant, almond and chocolate flavored (This is fondant that you will actually want to eat). I have several cake flavors and am always looking for new flavors to try. Quality is the most important thing to me in my cakes - I won't make something that tastes bad just to look good and neither will I make something that tastes good but is boring.

Flower Deco Cake

This is my newest cake. I wanted to practice doing a 3 layer Stacked cake, since I'll be making a cake similar to this for a MOPS event (Mothers of Preschoolers). This cake has layers of Chocolate and Almond White Cake (though I forgot to take a picture of the inside, sorry!). And it is covered with a chocolate buttercream frosting. The decorations are marshmallow fondant.

Overall I'm pretty pleased with this cake, mostly though, it was a great learning experience. As you can see from the close up pictures, I had some trouble smoothing it. This was my first attempt at a chocolate buttercream, and it just didn't set up right, so I'll definitely have to perfect that, but other than that (and a few other small details) I'm very happy with how it turned out.

Enjoy the pictures and watch for a better version of this cake in May. :-)
