What a fun cake for a great girl! My neighbor, Holly, had everything picked out top to bottom for her special 16th birthday cake from types of flowers she wanted to the color of the satin ribbon. I definitely learned some new things while making this cake: real flowers are fun to work with and I think I now know how to make a striped cake on the inside--still waiting to find out if it worked. I appreciate the chance to make such a super-cool cake for a super-sweet girl. HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOLLY!

One of the coolest holidays around, Dia de los Muertos is a more of a celebration of life than death. I whipped up these sugar skull-inspired cupcakes for the Halloween block party. Maybe someday I'll get to see some real Dia de los Muertos action, but until then I'll just keep decorating sweets in one of my favorite themes.

Happy birthday to my Mommy! My mom requested Hello Kitty, but I shot that idea down in favor of these cute little felines. Aren't they so sweet? YAY for kitties!!! Sorry Mom, you did get your marble cake with chocolate frosting though.

Wow! A year has gone by since I made one of my first posts for Brynn's princess cupcakes. This year, it's all about Hello Kitty. My mom is going to be so jealous! I bought these cutters years ago on ebay with the intention of making actual cookies, but they work so great with fondant. I hope that everyone enjoyed eating these homemade marble cupcakes with vanilla bean frosting as much as I enjoyed making them.

I often say "I always wanted to make" this cake or that cake, but I actually never thought about making a Sonic cake. I was happy to make this really cool cake for a little boy in one of my Spanish classes at Noonday. His favorite color is blue and he loves this feisty little Hedgehog. Originally, this cake was supposed to be kind of a sheet cake, but I haven't done a super-challenging, cool cake in a while, so I wanted to make something where the end result was awesome. I love the way he turned out with that ultra-intense expression on his face. Thanks so much Yvette for letting me make Nicholas a super, Sonic cake.


From disco zombie to bucket head zombie, these toppers were, by far, the most difficult and time consuming toppers I have ever made--ever. Thank goodness they turned out okay. I just wanted to post them for posterity because I would be surprised if I ever get a request for them again. You never know.

I love, love, love these cupcakes! This photo was sent to me by an Etsy customer who ordered my rockclimbing set for her son's birthday. Personally, I think she rocked the cupcakes! So cool! Thanks for the picture DeeDee!

Today was little Noah's first birthday, so naturally I made a Noah's ark cake and cupcakes. I was really excited to do work on the animals and all the little details that made this cake special. I loaded the ark up with lions, zebras, pandas, giraffes, an ostrich, monkey and hippo while a white dove flies overhead with an olive colored one its beak. The cake was yummy marble with light blue vanilla frosting. Thanks for letting me make a cool cake for a cool boy! Happy birthday and many more!

It's one of those years where the my kids with fall and winter birthdays insisted upon another "fake birthday party," so that they could have a pool party. Because I was expecting a huge crowd, I had to make tons of cake and cupcakes. I made 50 red velvet/cream cheese and lemon/lemon cupcakes topped with a variety of tropical toppers. The birthday cake was inspired by the party city napkin's floral theme. It was very yummy marble cake with chocolate frosting. Best of all, it was such an AWESOME party!

I know I always say this, but I was really excited to do this cake. I have never done a black cake and I always wanted to do that diamond pattern on the side so this was my chance. I just kept blinging it out until I couldn't bling anymore. Thanks so much for letting me make a "rocker princess" cake. Happy 8th birthday Carson. I hope you loved it!!!

Whether it's preschool or nursing school, May is all about graduation. I put together a bunch of toppers recently that celebrate this momentous occasion in the lives of my neighbors. I have to say that I love, love, love the nurse set and who doesn't love Hello Kitty? The toppers and the cupcakes were enjoyed by all.


I have been hoping to do a robot cake, because I love all things retro, so this was exciting to me. Unfortunately, I couldn't get that crazy Styx song out of my head while working on this cake. This robot cake is hiding a super-moist organic chocolate cake with creamy strawberry frosting under his fondant skin. Not to be confused with those robots without emotions, this robot wishes his buddy Quinn a "happy birthday" and sports the birthday boy's favorite colors of green and orange. Happy birthday little buddy. Domo arigato mom and dad!

¡¡¡Feliz cumpleaños Karla!!!

This three-tier quinceañera cake was designed for Karla, a lovely young lady, celebrating her 15th birthday this evening. The cake was such a great match for all of the girls' beautiful dresses and the party's color scheme. The top and bottom tiers are chocolate and chocolate ganache, the middle is vanilla with chocolate buttercream. The cupcakes are marble with coordinating purple and yellow vanilla bean frosting. They were so good!!!

Kevin, the California King Snake cake

Kevin, the California King Snake is a recently acquired pet belonging to my friend's son, Jacob. So, of course, he wanted a snake cake for his birthday. Check out the scales: I made them by pressing an onion bag into the fondant. Pretty cool. I hope Kevin tastes as good as he looks :).

I just received this email from Amy:
"Hey Freya, The Kevin cake was a huge success! When Jacob came home from school and saw the cake, he was so excited. Everyone loved the cake and it was very tasty too. All the adults commented on how cool it was. They all wanted to know who made it. I was actually sad to cut into it. Jacob wanted the middle chocolate part. All the other kids were fighting over the head."

40 & FABULOUS!!!

Ahhh, finally the culmination of a project I've been working on for a while. A friend of a friend is having her 40th birthday party tonight, hence the "sassy cake." This blinged out 2 tier cake is all vanilla bean cake with vanilla bean frosting covered in homemade hot pink marshmallow fondant and black fondant accented with silvery leopard spots and royal icing, topped off with a flashy fondant tiara.
Marble cupcakes complete the 40 theme with black flowers, forties and hot pink leopard print toppers.
