Hi, I'm Freya and I love to create edible works of art. I make all of my cakes and cupcakes from scratch with fresh, quality ingredients to ensure that they look and taste fantastic. I hope you enjoy my blog that features some of my favorite projects.

I have spent a couple of weeks working on all the little details of this cake for a phenomenal girl who is turning 13 soon. Faith's Mom sent me pictures of her feline friends that mean the world to her. Now, they are immortalized in fondant--of all things--as they whip up a little soiree for their favorite girl. Gotta love those little kitties.
Boo-Boo, the blue Abyssinian, hoists a big gift for her best pal.
Nessie, the ruddy silver Abyssinian, is always getting into mischief and has gotten a head-start on the gift opening.
Shelby is the lazy tabby curled up on Faith's kitty cat tee with a golden noisemaker to get the party started.


The kids and I spent an evening experimenting with royal icing and sugar cookies--not my forte--but I figured worth posting all the same. The kids picked out their favorites to leave for Santa on Christmas Eve. Yummy, yummy in his big fat tummy.

What a busy day today was! I prepared around 50 cupcakes for the kids' class parties and 2 cakes for the foreign language department at Lassiter High School. All of the cupcakes were red velvet and cream cheese decorated with fondant Christmas decorations. The yummy chocolate cake was a devil's food with whipped chocolate ganache filling and glossy ganache with chocolate shavings.

Our neighbor, Laura, celebrated her 8th birthday today and requested that her Webkinz make an appearance on her cake as well. The cotton candy bunny, elephant and monkey celebrate atop a candy covered chocolate cake with purple vanilla bean frosting.

I created these Christmas cupcakes on the fly for a tree decorating party. The red velvet cupcakes are adorned with fondant candy canes and bows, snowflakes, stars, ornaments and trees. I really loved the CK gold disco glitter on the ornaments and stars that top the trees: it was the first occasion I had had to use the gold glitter and I will definitely be ordering some more to bling out my cakes in the future.

Shimmering fondant rosebuds, butterflies, hearts and pearls top these red velvet and cream cheese wedding shower cupcakes. I am so happy with the way they turned out. I can't wait to do some more!

Happy birthday kids! I worked for quite a long time on all the various pieces of this cake which was inspired by my kids' love/obsession with Webkinz. The theme of the cake is a take on the online game Candy Bash Viva Poncho complete with a taco and chile wielding black and white cat decked out in a sombrero and a desert background. The top tier is red velvet and cream cheese and the bottom tier is chocolate with whipped chocolate ganache.


My little brother, Collin, turned 27 today. He is such a science- fiction lover and Star Wars is his favorite. I used the Williams-Sonoma Star Wars cookie cutters to stamp out the Yoda face: I highly recommend them! I also highly recommend the cupcakes!

We got our Halloween on in a big way this year! Between the fall festival, school parties and block parties there were cakes galore. Check 'em out.

Happy Birthday Audrey!

Nine-year-old Audrey is quite the Harry Potter fan, so she requested a Harry Potter book cake for her birthday. I did have fun working on her Harry Potter themed birthday cake which features the Golden Snitch, Hedwig, Harry's magic wand and scarf.

Feliz Dia de los Muertos

I love Dia de los Muertos. I baked this chocolate cake with whipped chocolate ganache just to bake it. I ended up taking it to the block party and at the end of the night it was still whole: nobody wanted to cut it. Silly neighbors. They did eat my cupcakes though.

It's a cat party, a big cat party!

Big cats and one little cat get together to wish my Mommy a happy birthday. All of the decorations are made from homemade vanilla buttercream flavored marshmallow fondant. I'm gonna miss those little kitties hanging out in my kitchen.

Jamaican-inspired garden cake

I made this cake for my daughter's third grade teacher who just welcomed a baby girl into his family. The lemon cake is filled with lemon buttercream and lemon curd iced with more lemon buttercream. The cake features flowers, fruits and tiny creatures that I chose to honor the baby's Jamaican heritage.

Woodlands cupcakes

I made these double chocolate and red velvet woodlands cupcakes for my friend's daughter's birthday. I love the little bluebird. We all loved to eat them.
