A "cake" for someone who doesn't like cake???

This is the Groom's cake I did for my Sister in Law's wedding. The Groom doesn't like cake. Gasp.... what? I know it's unbelievable, but some people actually don't like cake.

We came up with something creative for him. This "cake" is actually stacked layers of brownies and frosting! It was so yummy, especially paired with the chocolate covered strawberries.

I am guest Blogger!

Thank you so much to Unique Designs for let me be a guest blogger today! They asked me some really cute questions. I especially liked the one about the Easy Bake Oven. I had totally forgotten about the one I had growing up. I did love it and tried to use it all the time!

Swing on over and check out my post on their "fabulous little blog". When you are finished there, check out their beautiful website. Their work is AMAZING!!!! There was nothing out there like this when I got married. Their designs are custom, so they can create anything your heart desires.

Groom's Cake

This is the James, the Groom from the wedding last weekend, snacking on a fondant twizzler. Twizzlers are his favorite candy! I'm guessing he likes them a lot. The couple thought it would be fun to turn his favorite treat into a cake. It even had strawberry filling.

Thanks for challenging my creative skills and doing something fun!!!

Newest Creation

Congratulations to Whitney and James! Their wedding reception was amazing! The weather was perfect for an outdoor event! There were brightly colored paper lanterns and twinkling lights. The tables were decorated with beautiful orchid arrangements made by the Bride's Mother.

I truly loved making this cake! I have known Whitney and her family for years. I am so glad that I got to be a part of their special day! Keep and eye out for the Groom's cake later this week. It was an homage to the Groom's favorite red candy!

The Happy Couple

I love groom's cakes! They really show off a couple's personality. They can be traditional and formal or fun and funky. It's up to you.

Jen and Gordy are such a cute couple and were a lot of fun! The groom's cake was a surprise for Gordy's dad. We recreated his yellow Porsche and he loved it! He took tons of pictures of it and had to turn away when it was cut. The best part though.... it was really yummy!

Cake Love

The cake master, Ron Ben Israel, is simply the best! I have been in love with his modern, clean and insanely beautiful cakes for years. His cakes defy gravity and his flowers rival mother nature. Check out his website,, for some inspiration and amazement!!!

Filling Flavors

How many times have you been to a wedding where they served white cake with white frosting? Yea, it's good... but why not make it something people will go home raving about? There are several ways bakers put cakes together. Many have three layers of cake and two layers of filling. I prefer four layers of cake and three layers of filling.

Filling a cake this way provides the opportunity to do some really beautiful things. I think the cake should be beautiful on the outside and the inside. Adding colored or flavored butter creams and fruit fillings will add the ooh factor when the cake is cut.

I am so excited about the wedding cake I am making this weekend. Inside will be pineapple filling and guava mousse. This adds beautiful color to the cake and delicious flavor. Why not treat your guests to something unexpected... and delicious!

Bridesmaids Night

Here is the display I did for bridesmaids night at Solutions Bridal. It was a Sex in The City theme using the colors hot pink and black.

This cake was so much fun to make. I didn't have any restrictions. They told me to do something creative that would go with the theme. Don't you think it would be prefect for a girly bridal shower? The twist pretzels and pretzel rods were made to match the color scheme, and were really yummy, if I do say so myself. :)

Let me know what you think.

Gators, Gators, and more Gators

This weekend I had the opportunity to make another alligator for a Gator fan groom. The reception was beautiful! The couple even had a outdoor sports bar set up to watch the game during the reception! True fans!!!!

This is my husband/delivery guy, Steve. I couldn't do it without him. We finished the table with fresh greenery. My gator looked like he was in the swamp.

Thank you to Keri and Frankie for including me in your special day!
