This cake has my heart. It is …and may always be …the coolest cake I ever decorate. I honestly do not know how I can ever top it. I decorated this large 4 tier cake for the Sugar Art competition at the Eastern Idaho State Fair in Blackfoot Idaho. It was the first time I […]
This is a life size Burmese Python cake that I made for my son’s 20th Birthday. I love it when my older kids call me up and still want a birthday cake made by Mom. (of course when you can request a cake like this …I don’t think it matters how old they get …they […]
This cake was so fun. It started as a 9×13 single layer “Texas Marble” sheet cake. I carved it into the shape of the piano. Then frosted with butter-cream and covered in fondant. The gold leafed pages and the Steinway & Sons emblem were painted with food-grade edible Gold glaze. BTW: The legs that support […]

I really wish I had taken more pictures of the process of making this cake, but sadly I did not start taking pictures until I had already gotten this much done. My son wanted a WALL-E cake for his birthday, so here is my version. In all the cakes I have made in 21 years […]
These cakes make for a nice neighborhood or office gift at Christmas time as well. My older kids sold these single layer cakes one year as a fund raising project. Together, our family baked and decorated 50 of these cakes in three days! It made for fun times and good memories. A family that “plays” […]
This was the first cake I ever baked in a glass bowl and it actually worked well. However, you need to make sure your glass bowl is tempered and safe to use in your oven. I did learn newer glass bowls sold at the store nowadays cannot be used for this. I went to the […]
No cake ever made is as awesome as celebrating 50 years of marriage! This is a replica of the wedding cake our grandparents had when they were married in 1953. I even replicated the topper and the silk flowers. Note to self: I need to post a picture of them with their cake on their […]

My seven year=old son wanted a Komodo Dragon for his birthday. Since a Komodo dragon would make a less-than desirable house pet, due to possibly causing DEATH! I opted to make him one as a birthday cake instead. He loved it –especially since mom (me) was so cool as to make the insides strawberry cake […]
