Happy Birthday Mason!!

Jan, a fellow Silverlaker, needed a birthday cake for her grandson who was turning 6 last weekend. I made this 8" round cake in chocolate with whipped buttercream icing with a Cars theme, Mason's favorite. He was so excited when I told him that the Lightning McQueen on top of the cake was actually a real car that he could keep.

Thanks Jan!!

Happy Birthday Mr. Ellen!

Ellen emailed me about an Italian Creme Cake for her husband's birthday last week. To be honest, I was really nervous about it because I had never made one before but I did have a recipe. So I gave it a shot and here's how it turned out.

Thanks Ellen!!

Include "Award Winning" to my cakeballs!

I entered my cakeballs in my neighborhood's July 4th baking contest and I WON!!!! I decided to enter the contest the morning of and since I didn't plan anything special, I wasn't really expecting to win. But I'm really excited that I did!!!

Here's what I whipped up at the last moment:

Yummy Banana Pudding

I do not discriminate when it comes to sweets. Occasionally, I will shy away from cakes/cupcakes/cakeballs and the result is usually yummy.

This banana pudding recipe was given to me by my grandmother and it has never failed to score at a party or picnic!

Happy Birthday Matthew!!

Matthew is turning 6 and wanted a Transformers birthday cake. So his mom emailed me and I got to work. The cake was chocolate with buttercream icing and marshmallow fondant accents. I also sent over some cakeball samples and I'm told everything was delicious, which makes me feel good!

Thanks so much Pam!!
