Some clouds in the sky for a very special little “pilot” client. I have been baking his birthday cakes for the past 3 years. I made this cake with all my love to this family that is so close to my heart. I realized that this is going to be the last cake I will make for him! It makes it so bittersweet! I wished they wouldn’t have to move so far away so I could keep making my cakes and celebrating with them all our victories together. Unfortunately life has other plans to us and I will miss them tremendously!

It is a white cake with chocolate ganache and covered in a swiss buttercream frosting.

I am so blessed to have the opportunity to make amazing cakes and put big smiles on the little ones’ faces. It is so gratifying and I don’t have enough words to thank this wonderful family that trusted me with the design for the center piece for their son’s birthday.

Sometimes we forget some details when making cakes. On this one I forgot how hard it is to make red buttercream. Luckily I am just a car distance from stores that carries food colors. I used 2 of my tubes and had to run to get a third one! Yes!!! I forgot that red is one of the hardest color to match. I am so happy that I had the color I desired and the cake came out the way I planned!

I made cake pops to match the top tier! They were real vanilla bean cake with white chocolate ganache.

The cakes were chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and fresh strawberries, real vanilla cake with swiss vanilla buttercream.

Gladly to say that most of the ingredients were organic and the cakes were delivered on a electric vehicle powered by the sun! We were so excited!

This was a Cinderella birthday party for a sweet little 5 year old friend!

Her grandmother had a vision of what she wanted but trusted me on the design and final decisions. I love when my clients are open to changes. This way it is easier to work with putting all the cakes together and have a touch of my style. I worked with the idea that Cinderella is all about sparkles and glitter. The pictures don’t show very well how shiny the cakes were, but I put extra sparkles on everything.

I made two different flavors for the cakes, vanilla and chocolate, with 2 different fillings, ganache with organic strawberries and organic strawberry buttercream. They were covered in fondant. I always try to get as many organic ingredients as possible. I am thrilled to say that this cake was almost entirely organic! I made forty cake pops in two different styles also.

I did not have the glass slipper to put as a topper for the picture but try to picture a glass slipper on top of the two tiered cake. It came out just perfect for the princess and for the venue that was beautifully decorated for the party.

It was a pleasure to make my art to our dear friends that appreciate it and share my love for cake with their friends! Thank you for making me part of your special day!

Cinderella Barbie Cake

I like to make a flowing dress to give movement to the cake. I always carve the cake with some curves on it. It is my style and a personal preference too.

Look what happens when a baker is invited for dinner at a friends house!!!

I don’t have enough words to tell how cute these are!!! It was a work of love and lots of time, but so worth it!

The kids loved it and the adults too! It brought lots of smiles and lots of great conversation about how could I possibly do it! So fun!

This was a gift to one of my favorite girls! Love her! She deserves all the best!

Hello Kitty Cake Pops

Fondant covered cake with pearl shimmer and chocolate pearls around it. It is a winter mermaid dream cake. Simple and elegant.

 

White Pearls Cake

I was asked to make this cake using the inspiration from Sophia’s dress. I thought it was a pretty adorable cake. I color matched the dress with the bow so everything would tie together for this princess celebration. I was challenged by the second skirt draped on top of the white skirt. I thought it would be an easy job but it was far from being easy! At the end I loved the way the whole cake came together with the clean and simple look! For me sometimes less is more! Loved it! Sophia the first

Sometimes we have to hear once what you never heard before to hear all the time and see it all around you. This is what happened to this decoration. I made a simple Minecraft buttercream cake.

Minecraft Cake

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!

Scarecrow cake

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!
