Welcome Message

Welcome! This blog is collection of cakes I have decorated.

You don't need to be a professional to make these. If you did, I wouldn't be here...I am NOT a professional. I just like decorating and making something that the kids will smile over.

My first kids cake was a very basic chocolate 2-layer cake with a blue stick figure on it for my oldest son's 1st birthday back in 1994. I insisted on making my children's first cake. Later, when I got sick of the hum-drum too sweet sheet cakes from the store, I decided try something a bit more "fun". I started with the pumpkin design in 2005 for my husband's 40th birthday (he loves pumpkins) and I worked up from there. You won't find these cakes in your grocery store! The kids never ask for anything from the bakery anymore either.

I am trying to include pictures and instructions for each cake. You don't HAVE to attend cake decorating classes. (I didn't) And you don't HAVE to have a lot of tools to get started. All it takes to make these cakes is a little patience and some imagination. If you don't want to bother with the imagination part, just check through the designs listed to the right for something that interests you. I am constantly clipping cake and cupcake pictures from magazines for inspiration. I have seen some really cute stuff out there!

For those of you who are inexperienced when it comes to BAKING a cake, not just decorating one, I have a 3 part video tutorial series on
Yahoo! Voices online. Check it out!

Cake decorating is a part-time hobby for me. I don't sell cakes or cake products. I only make about 5 or 6 decorated cakes a year and occasionally will decorate cupcakes for a holiday or just for fun. Enjoy the blog! If you have questions, feel free to ask and I'll do my best to help you out. Thanks for coming by!

Hello! I stumbled upon your site after googling electric guitar. I am so excited to try out your guitar cake. I have a question about the little knobs and stuff. How did you color them silver? I've been trying to search for an answer but I can't find anything. Thanks!

I used Wilton's Pearl Dust. I got it at my local craft store but it is available at Wilton online. You should only need one bottle. Mix it with some flavoring and paint it on your fondant pieces. If you just want a shimmer, dust it on dry.

Good Luck!
