Hi Everyone, I am a newlywed and have always loved to cook, bake, and entertain. Lately I decided to start making cakes and now I can't stop; whether its cakes, cupcakes, cake truffles, etc!! I just love everything about them... the creativity, versatility, and the love that they bring to those who eat them.

Happy Birthday Ryan!

My husband is a huge Yankees fan and was very surprised when I brought out his cakes... And most importantly, he loved how they taste!
This is a chocolate cake, with chocolate buttercream icing, and covered with chocolate marshmallow fondant.
And of course my husband's favorite... Red velvet cake, with cream cheese icing, covered with marshmallow fondant.

Flower Basket





This is my first basket weave cake.  I thought I would never finish... My hand was killing me, but I was determined to finish it tonight so that my husband could take it into his work tomorrow.  This is a white cake, covered in buttercream icing, with royal icing accents.

Happy Birthday Mary!



Mary is my mother in law, and I have never met anyone that loves chocolate more than her :) 
So as you would expect, this is a Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Buttercream icing, and topped off with delicious Red Velvet Cake Truffles.  I also made some chocolate bars to go around the top tier of this cake and accented it with Fondant.



I also made some extra Red Velvet Cake Truffles for my husband since it is his favorite cake.
