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

I was inspired to make this cake after I watched Joshua John Russell teaching a modern buttercream class on Craftsy. He showed how to make a bow and I took the opportunity to incorporate it in this cake. It is amazing how much you can learn online but I still love to take classes in person.  The red roses are sugar flowers made especially for a 81 year old woman that got this cake as a gift. This was a chocolate cake for 40 people, with fresh raspberry jam and chocolate ganache. Black and red are her favorite colors. Very chic!!!

This was an order for aspecial friend that her daughter just turned 4! It is my third year making cakes for this princess that I am so blessed to be picked again. They wanted 2 separated cakes that matched. The doll cake for the kids and the tiered for the adults. The flavors were coconut cake with passion fruit filling and the always favorite of kids and adults chocolate, of course! The doll cake is finished with light pink colored fondant and the tiered cake with Swiss  buttercream. As always I used as many organic ingredients that I could find. For me this is very important since we want the best for our kids. This doll was a collector’s edition and simply gorgeous. Looked just like the birthday girl. I picture Sophia looking like this when she grows up. Sweet little princess she is!!! Thanks for trusting me on this very special day!
