It amazes me how many people ask me how I can bake. For me it is simple, start a recipe and follow it and VOILA. For the very first time in many many years baking I experienced what many people had.
The cake did not work! YES!
I don’t not know what it was but I know something; to rush doesn’t make things easier for me. I was in such a tight schedule that I tried to make it as fast as I could. The same cake that I probably baked 100 times!!
I told my daughter after she got home from school what happened and as smart as a 5 years old can be, she said to me: “Mom, I think you forgot LOVE!”. I always tell her that we have to put our love in everything we do in a daily basis.
I think the crazy, busy and stressful life style we all get into, can make us forget how important the simple things are. I have to say that I rebaked with gratitude and this time I did not forget my love, thoughtfulness and compassion!
This time the LOVE was everywhere!!! Of course there was not much sleep for me, but the cake was ready for delivery!
I am thankful for the opportunity to share my passion, art and LOVE with the most amazing, special, curious and smart kids and their families!
When I am making a cake I always put my heart and soul in it. It wasn’t different for this special order. I didn’t just make a cake, I made a special gift for two of my very favorite boys! Their mother asked me to make cupcakes with a Lego decor and marshmallow pops as Lego faces! I was thinking to myself and couldn’t stop there just because I love to make cakes and there wasn’t any cake to cut and serve! So I decided to make some anyway! The decorations and imagination for the party went far beyond my expectations! Everything looked SO beautiful. I was so happy to be a small part of their special day! What an amazing mom these boys have. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did making them!
This cake was served the day before the party for their relatives in town to celebrate the actual boy’s birthday day!
On the making… I made a mold and shaped 60 edible Lego bricks to decorate the cupcakes! Bright and fun colors!
I particularly love to make cakes for the little ones. Especially the one year olds that never had a taste of sweets before and are having the first taste with my cakes. I am so honored! I put all the best organic ingredients and all my love in their cakes. This was a 40-50 person cake with inspiration taken from the party’s invitation. Dark blue and red were the color pallet and the vintage theme was a hit. It had beautiful decorations, food and games in a fun summer day here in San Diego, CA. Perfect party day!!! The smash cake was buttercream matching with the fondant cake for the adults. I heard the birthday boy was really careful and gentle with his cake but he got his job done!!! Yeah!
This was a first for me! I had to deliver this cake by train. I was a little nervous but the cake made it perfectly fine and I have to say that it was just so much fun.
This was a very special order from by far the most amazing, sweet and kind family I have ever known. I am not kidding or exaggerating! I hope you all have somebody to relate to because it is a serious “kind” business!
Thank you so much for the opportunity, trust, belief in me and appreciation. You all made my day way sweeter and my work so easy and pleasant!
I am not the girl from Ipanema but I definitely love Rio and Copacabana’s famous sidewalk design.
I am a Brazilian by birth, so I had to celebrate my birthday in style.
I hope you like my interpretation of Rio!
Happy Birthday to me!
This was a very festive way to celebrate a kid’s birthday party!
They are colorful and look like streamers!
I was asked to make this colorful and fun cake a few weeks ago. Not talking about pressure but the husband is a chef and the sister is an artist! I took my chances and of course said yes. They brought me this beautiful design and the details they wanted. So the cake was already designed and ready, so I just had to follow their wishes. I really enjoyed making it even though it was a challenge, took me a lot of time to figure out how I would do it and lots of drying time for the gum paste. I think it was really adorable and hopefully blended well with their decorations. Please let me know your thoughts! Thanks for stopping by.
This is a graduation/birthday cake for a wonderful girl. She is turning 18, traveling to Italy with her family, moving out of her home, going to college to study oceanography and has roots in Peru. I was lucky to bake for her and be trusted with the design of the cake. She asked me for a purple cake and a mermaid on it. I think the cake turned out as cute and sweet as she is. I am so proud of being using most of organic ingredients and sharing them with my beloved clients that are so open and kind to me and my designs. Thanks for the wonderful opportunity to bake for this family that is close to my heart.
I gave the mother some options to decorate her son’s smash cake. She asked me for two surf boards, a blue cake with some waves and some shark fins to decorate the cupcakes. The cake was a white buttermilk with real vanilla bean and of course I went all the way to use as many organic ingredients as I could find. I would say that I was very happy with the result regarding the ingredients except for the blue dye that wasn’t organic. I tried the natural one but I could not get the right shade she desired. I love to use all natural dyes but it did not work this time.
I heard the cake was “SMASHED” really well!!! Success I would say and happy me!!! Happy Birthday to you Landon that is a miracle boy and is around us to fill our lives with smiles, giggles and wiggles!!! So happy to be part of your first celebration! Thanks so much!
I was asked to bake cake pops for this sweet and cute little girl that does not have a favorite color but instead loves all of them. So I couldn’t help myself but to get her some of the rainbow colors and make cake pops to share with her friends at school! The colors are so kids friendly and I fell in love with the combination of them. I am hoping that treat colors everybody’s day in a very good way!!! Have a beautiful colorful day!!
