Zebra Cupcakes with hot pink flowers

These little babies were made to go with a matching cake, which I will try to post next. 
It was for a client's birthday. I was so proud of her for ordering a cake for herself. Us moms always get the shaft, because no one ever thinks to order or make a cake for us right?
These cupcakes were moist chocolate cake, with vanilla, almond cream cheese frosting, yum!

Bedding inspired floral design cake

So this cake is exactly what it sounds like. The girl sent me a picture of the baby's bedding, and wanted me to do a cake inspired by it. Sadly I deleted the picture of the bedding, because I wanted to show what it was inspired by, but you can take my word for it, that it looked a lot like the cake. :)
This was for a baby shower. She told me to decide on the flavor, so I figured I'd go with the most universally yummy: moist white cake, with almond vanilla buttercream.
I tried to give you a good view of every decoration on the cake.
This one was a bit time consuming, just because there are so many, colors and details, as well as the hand painting that I did, but I like the way it turned out. (And so did she.)

At first I thought the bedding might be a weird thing thing to inspire a cake, but I am really happy with the end result. I think the colors are fun and bold, and it has a fun design. Enjoy!

Easter Chocolate Pie

Yes, I am aware that it is way past Easter. And I am aware that this is not a cake, but I'm counting it anyway. Chocolate mouse pie is one of my husbands favs. and I was feeling a bit sick of cake this particular day, so this is what I made.
I made a cute little bunny and carrots out of fondant, to top of my chocolate "mud" pie. I thought it turned out fun. Just something fun and simple for the holiday.
