This simple, yet elegant cake was made for two very special family friends of ours, Kris and Amanda Gallaher. My family and I have known Kris since he was 4 years old and when he asked me to do his wedding cake, I was MORE than honored to be the one to do so. Their wedding colors consisted of beige and coral with a little bit of glam and bling added to the theme. So to capture the elegance, Amanda and I decided to go with a more suddle design that seemed to stand out even more than an outrageously designed cake at this particular wedding. Everyone loved it and I enjoyed receiving compliments on it all night. Thank you so so so much again Kris and Amanda for choosing me to do your wedding cake, you have no idea how much it meant to me!
Melissa, I can't express how thankful we are that you made our cake for our special day! You are so talented and it was beautiful! Kris and I are still eating it :)

This gorgeous wedding-like cake, was ordered from a high school friend of mine in honor of her parents 25 Anniversary celebration! The celebration took place in a large banquet area with a ton of people invited to celebrate this amazing milestone in their lives. Everything is entirely edible on the cake, aside from the "25" on top, and the diamond broaches in the center of the bows. I handcrafted each rose, painted them with an edible gel and touched the rims of the flowers with an edible silver dust that looked absolutely gorgeous! I also handcrafted each of the bows and painted them with an edible silver dust. I was sooo extremely proud of this cake and I KNOW that they loved it! Thank you so much again Yari for thinking about me for your Parents cake!
This little cake was a specially designed cake that my husband and I used to announce the gender of our baby to our family! I wanted to keep the cake gender neutral without making it yellow or something too babyish. If anything, I have done nothing but the opposite of your typical baby colors when it came to designing our baby boy's nursery. So when it came to the cake, I loved using black and white as the perfect un-guessable gender cake! I used my amazing cricut cake machine for the lettering. I cut black stripes and rolled them evenly into white fondant to create the base of my fondant flowers. I then pressed lace molds into pink and green fondant to create some fun chunky flower centers and to give the cake a ton of personality. When we cut into the cake, It was bright lime green on the inside and we were more than happy to announce that it was a boy! We even made a video out of the event and created one of the best memories for our family. This is a great idea for all of my fellow prego ladies!

This cake was done for a VERY SPECIAL couple and very good friends of mine. I have known the bride, Sarah Ashley Callicott [now Mrs. Khalaf!] since we were in 5th grade and when she asked me to be by her side as one of her bridesmaids AND to create her wedding cake, I was ecstatic! When we met up to design her cake together, I LOVED that she literally let me run wild and design the cake however I wanted! Her wedding theme was an antique shabby chic feel with tons of bling, lace and dusty rose accents. Thanks to my mom who rolled hundreds of tiny fondant pearls that we strung into ivory necklaces draping down the cake. We topped them off with chunky rhinestones at the ends of each one and I fell IN LOVE! I rimmed each of my fondant roses with an edible silver shimmer dust mixed with vodka and dusted each of them entirely with an edible pearl shimmer dust. Sarah and Jason LOVED their cake and I wish I could of had a picture of each of their reactions when they saw it, seriously priceless. I love you both so much, Thank you so much for allowing me to create your wedding cake and I cannot wait for you two to begin your Marriage, finally!

This RIDICULOUSLY girly cake and cupcake duo was so much fun to make! I created this cake for a co-worker of my husband's for her daughter Emma's special seventh birthday! Their request for this particular cake design consisted of a ton of pink, edible glitter and the perfect amount of glitz and sparkle. I used black fondant to create a gorgeous and entirely edible crown on top of the cake, as well as several miniature edible crowns for the matching cupcakes. I added dramatic black fondant ruffles down the center of the cake and spiced it up with polka dots to give the cake a fun personality. I then mixed edible glitter with a small amount of vodka and painted the hot pink side of the cake to glam it up even more. I used my amazing Cricut Cake to cut out Emma's name out of black fondant to give it that stunning professional look. Finally for the cupcakes, I just let my imagination run wild and chose simple yet adorable designs that complimented the cake perfectly. They LOVED their order and I was soooo excited to give it to them :)
