April Showers Brings May Baby Shower!

I was honored by another dear friend to do a baby shower cake for her daughter.  This cake required the use of three different pans to create the figure cake; which was then covered in vanilla butter cream and dressed in pretty pink fondant.
  It all began with the details!  
Fondant buttons were brushed with edible Pearl Dust.



Rolling out fondant over an impression mat of spring ivy and giving it a light dusting of Pearl Dust.  



For the finishing touch, I added a plaque cut from white fondant.




Very carefully, as not to disrupt her beautiful figure, this cake was then transported to her shower. 





A new baby girl,  So tiny and sweet,   To fill your heart with joy!

Congratulations to the new parents. 


Mother's Day

Inspired by the March 2014 Martha Stewart Living magazine, I tried my hand at making macarons for a treat for my Mother. To give them my own personal touch, I added a few embellishments of drizzling white chocolate over them and then adding pastel sprinkles. I also added a beautiful fondant rose and in between some rich chocolate ganache.


“A wish for Mother’s Day” By Saundra Jackson   
A multi-tasking wonder A woman like no other A woman we all know and love A woman we call mother. On Mother’s Day we’ll thank her with sweet sentiments and flowers For a lifetime of her loving care In just a few short hours. “I am just a mom” is what a mom might say.   But her kids would beg to differ as they celebrate her day. So here’s a wish for Mother’s Day to moms both near and far. A wish that you will always know how wonderful you are. 

Wishing my mother and you and yours a Happy Mothers day!

Dot’s Before Your Eyes!

Please don't adjust your screen, your just seeing dots made of delicious butter cream.

The plaque was cut from fondant and the birthday wish is written with butter cream. 

Wishing Fran a very Happy 50th Birthday.
