Sweetest Baptism Cake for my Sweet 8 Year Old

In September our little Razy was baptized as a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It was a sweet and special day. And she got a sweet and special cake to go with it.

Perfect Spring Wedding Cake

Last spring my nephew got married. He and his bride asked that I make a cake for their open house. They were married in Portland and Katie had someone make their wedding cake. The wedding and the cake were beautiful. When they came to Washington for their other reception I wanted a cake that would impress. I couldn't just make one cake. I wanted a cake buffet! Here is what I came up with.

Fablehaven Birthday Cake

Do we have any Brandon Mull fans out there? How about Fablehaven? My oldest loves Fablehaven. Fablehaven will forever be a family favorite and I will forever be grateful to Brandon Mull. Lil E struggled with reading until he discovered Fablehaven. He was in 3rd grade when he began reading the series. At the time he was barely a 3rd grade reading level. He fell in love with the books and couldn't stop reading. In one year he jumped up a grade in reading and now he is excelling in reading. Now in 5th grade he is reading at a 7th grade reading level. I actually made this cake June of 2014 when he was in 4th has just taken me forever to post it. 

Frozen Birthday Cake

I can't believe I never posted Razy's 7th birthday cake. I am BEHIND. This was a cake that received lots of approval not only from my little girl, but from many other little girls. It was so popular that I was asked to duplicate it 2 months later for another little girl we know that was turning 11.

Pleated Buttercream CTR cake

This week our little girl was baptized.  With each of our children's 8th birthdays, their cake has been a CTR cake that we have presented after their baptism. I was a little worried how this one would turn out because I wanted to keep things simple.  I didn't want to do fondant and with time not on my side I needed it to be something I could decorate fairly quickly.  I love how it turned out and I plan to make another cake with the pleated buttercream technique.  

 Mema and Aunti dared her to take a big bite out of it after we sang Happy Birthday.  Silly girl did so!!

This year she chose a WASC cake with Raspberry cream cheese filling. Chocolate cake with cookies and cream filling and frosted in Fluffy American Buttercream.

Lego Birthday Cake

Got a Lego lover in your home?  Here is a super fun cake.  The Lego blocks were made with modeling chocolates poured into Lego molds.  The Lego tiles on the cake were just fondant.  The cake plate was covered in fondant that was pressed by a Lego mat.  

Love this Lego loving kiddo
