Recipes that I like

  • Hershey's Black Magic Cake A great moist chocolate cake recipe that isn't too sweet and easy to make
  • Chocolate Banana Cake An awesome low-fat cake recipe. If I'm making it to decorate I'll often use a different chocolate cake recipe and make 1-2 layers of the banana cake. I use a low-fat cream cheese - chocolate icing (rather than the ricotta)
  • Martha's Swiss Meringue Buttercream I love using my Pink Kitchenaid mixer to make this buttercream. It tastes amazing and I wouldn't survive without it. I add flavoring to this recipe to make different types of filling

Chanel Purse Cake

Tiffany Whimsical Wedding Cake

Better pictures to come.

Bottom tier is chocolate/banana cake with nutella buttercream. Top two tiers are chocolate cake with strawberry buttercream.

Tom Servo Cake

My boyfriend Joey loves the show Mystery Science Theater 3000 so for his birthday I got him a MST3K themed gift and made him this Tom Servo cake.

Base is made from chocolate cake with SMBC. Torso and upper is made from Rice Krispie treats. All covered in SMBC & fondant. Painted with luster dust.

Jungle Cake

I did this cake in my final class with Bonnie Gordon. It's a banana cake filled with nutella covered in SMBC. Covered in fondant with fondant/gumpaste & royal icing

Mini Cake II

Another go at the mini-cake. Covered in fondant. Cat & flowers are a gumpaste/fondant mix

Mini-Cake I

One of the first times I used fondant to cover a cake.


I've created this blog to post pictures of my cakes! I started decorating cakes this year and it's turned into quite a hobby. I even made my first wedding cake this month. This site will be dedicated to the cakes that I do, recipes I like and classes that I take. Enjoy!
