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.

Small Block & Star Birthday Cake

I did this for a family in my MOPS group. This first cake was just for the family and the theme was off of a napkin they showed me. Around the cake it says, "Happy Birthday!" The little blocks that say "Blake" are actually square cake pops! Yes, it was not easy to make squares, but once I got the hang of it, it was pretty fun. I still used the lollipop stick to make them, as it's easier for dipping and drying the cake pops, then I just removed the stick. That does leave a hole in the back of the cake pop, so I'm still working on perfecting them. Or if you like, you could leave them on the stick, which would be fun too. :-) I frosted with buttercream and decorated with Marshmallow Fondant.
