Since I’ve been on but I’ve been pretty busy so you’ll have to understand. I’m in college full time for music education so I keep running out of time to post things. However, here I am! 

I have this one customer who has ordered a cake every weekend for the past month. Go figure. She orders the same one every time, so I’ve gotten pretty darn good at dark chocolate with chocolate chips and buttercream frosting. I’ve actually mastered it. H

This is the cake from two weeks ago… first birthday!!!

She ordered one 9″ round for the adults, and a 6″ round for the little munchkin to demolish 🙂 

And this is the cake from today that she ordered… Another birthday for her friend. I was messing around with the rose technique and it turned out pretty well. Have a look.

I’ve also done some cupcakes, nothing for orders though just for a friend’s birthday and such. Not really worth taking pictures of, they were delicious looking as always!

Hellllloooo everyone! Today was the day I had to make a golf themed birthday cake for an 18 year old boy who just got diagnosed with lymphoma cancer. So sad 😦 But his sister is awesome, and hired me for the job!

They wanted a cake that could feed 30-40 people, so I made them a 12×18 sheet cake. It was marbled vanilla and chocolate, with a vanilla buttercream on top. It turned out amazingly. Take a look!

My first attempt at marble cake ever was absolutely perfect! So happy!

From there, since it was golf themed, I decided to go with a putting green with the 18th hole on one side and a golf ball on the other with the text in the middle. Here is the evolution. Enjoy!!!

The customer was happy! I wish I got to be there for the presentation which is happening today, which I can’t but everyone loves it so hopefully it tastes good.

Much love! Keep watch on Sunday for my next project… Three dozen cupcakes and a sphere cake. Oooooo 🙂

Today, I had my first real commission! I had to make 8 dozen cupcakes, and one 9″ round birthday cake for a Christening. It was beautiful. My cupcakes were perfect. They were beautiful. Just look at these things!

I had to make 2 dozen of dark chocolate cupcakes (with chocolate chips in the middle… the favorite of this account holder) with a vanilla buttercream…

Image

2 dozen red velvet with a cream cheese frosting… (these had white chocolate chips in the middle!) 

Image

2 dozen vanilla, with a vanilla buttercream… I used a tie-dye technique with the frosting, and had sugar pearls in light blue to decorate!Image

And finalllllly… My favorite cupcake ever, which I call the “Sweet ‘n’ Salty” is a dark chocolate, with a peanut butter buttercream, drizzled with caramel, sprinkled with peanuts and sea salt. 

Image

And this is the cake. It was really detailed… She didn’t really give me any instruction on what the colors were or anything, so I just went with my gut. (Dark chocolate, buttercream, green and gray dyed icing)Image

And that was my first day as real life baker!
