Princess Birthdays

In Baby, cake, Dessert, Girls, Kids on July 18, 2010 at 6:22 am

My dear friend asked me to help her make birthday cakes for her two little cousins. It was clearly a princess party from the moment we arrived! We matched Ally’s cake to all of her gifts and her decorations, adding a little edible sparkle to make it extra special.

She may not be much of a smiler, but it is apparent she was pleased with her cake!

It was also little Laney’s birthday, so we made her a small cake as well.

Keeping to the color scheme, we matched the inside of each cake to its exterior. Needless to say, all of the adults and children were all extremely surprised!

I very much enjoy being part of the occasions I make my cakes for! I love seeing my clients’ reactions and being able to enjoy all the fun right along with them! Thanks for having me P & G’s!!!! Glad you liked the cake!

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Mania

In cake, Dessert, Food on July 18, 2010 at 5:55 am

I don’t think anyone in the world loves Reese’s as much as my husband does. Each candy-related holiday, I fill our themed candy jars with different varieties of Reese’s candies. I always buy 2 jumbo bags and they are ALWAYS gone within 2 days. I don’t eat any of them. In past years, I have even taken the excess candy to hide at work and in different drawers and compartments around the house. He (and my co-workers) have always found and devoured ALL of it.

SO- what better way to celebrate his and his brothers’ birthdays than a cake made almost entirely of Reese’s and chocolate?

This is a milk chocolate cake, iced with chocolate buttercream and packed FULL of 2 entire bags of Reese’s peanut butter cups. The inside filling is my own very cream cheesy – cream cheese filling.

This cake tastes like nothing I could have ever dreamed. It is amazing.
