Burger Cupcakes

Just in time for the weekend.... Burger cupcakes!

These are easy as can be!  Vanilla cupcakes for the bun, half a chocolate cupcake for the burger & colored buttercream for the ketchup, mustard & lettuce.

Pink, White & Zebra Fondant Cake

Every time I make a cake, it becomes my new favorite.  This cake may hold first place for quite some time :)

Another graduation party cake, for another "cousin" of mine!  Sloane's party theme was pink & black & zebra stripes.  The cake (& cupcakes) fit in perfectly!

This cake was so much fun to make!  I had my first experience making the zebra stripes, and I love the way it turned out.  The beautiful thing about fondant?  It withstood the 90+ degree heat on Saturday!

The bottom layer was chocolate, the middle was pink velvet funfetti, and the top layer was vanilla.

All the layers were filled & iced with vanilla buttercream & covered with homemade marshmallow fondant.  The cake was topped with a gumpaste bow.

I also made vanilla & pink velvet funfetti cupcakes (in pink and black zebra striped liners), pictured in the background.

Congratulations, Sloane!!

Stacked Fondant Cake

Another graduation cake!  This one was three layers, 6"/9"/12", and was vanilla, chocolate, and banana cake.
Vanilla buttercream was used for filing and icing underneath the homemade marshmallow fondant.

Fondant & Swirls Cake

This is the other cake for the joint graduation party on Saturday.  There were no specific requests, and all I knew was that she wasn't picky about flavor and loves purple.  So naturally, I made her a purple velvet funfetti cake!  It's filled and frosted with whipped vanilla buttercream & decorated with fondant.

Happy Graduation, Nikki!

My beautiful little cousin, Nikki, just graduated from high school last month.  She is super smart and got an amazing scholarship for college, too!  I had the honor of making her cake & cupcakes for her graduation party  this weekend.  I knew the cake had to be extra special, just like her ;)

Nikki asked for a lemon cake with a lemon curd & whipped cream filling.  I decorated the cake with a purple (her favorite!) buttercream in ruffles.

Congratulations, Nikki!
