Autumn Wedding Cake

When I decided to enter a cake in the Southern New Mexico State Fair, I knew I wanted to do an Autumn wedding cake. The orange roses are delicate and beautiful. They look amazing with the green fondant. Combining the round and square shapes with the quilted pattern makes a gorgeous modern cake. Oh and it won first place!

Fruit Basket 2010

This was a delicious chocolate cake for my father in-law. It really looks like fruit basket. A change of the ribbon can really change the mood of the cake. My father in-law is very political and patriotic so I wanted some thing Red, White, and Blue.

Sunflower Wafer Cake 2010

My niece shows a steer for 4H each year, and they like to provide a dessert for the buyer's luncheon. My sister let me do this beautiful fair time cake. No one wanted to cut into it at the luncheon. We think they gave it to the judge as a 'thank you'. I was honored.

Fish 2010

I was visiting my family out of state. My sister told me that her boy really wanted a fish birthday cake. So I started baking and my mom went to the store to buy some candy. I didn't have any of my cake decorating tools and there wasn't a lot of time, but I think it turned out cute. Levi liked it, which is most important.

Laura 2010

This cake was truly a challenge, but I enjoy a challenge. I had the cake done a week early, but when I took it out of the freezer the day of the wedding and the fondant melted right off the cake. So I have learned how to defrost a cake in the middle of a New Mexico summer. At 3pm I ripped the fondant off and started over knowing the reception was at 7pm. Lucky for me I had some pre-made items that saved the cake. With more attention to detail this cake could be even more fabulous.

Fresh Peach Pie 2010

My Father In-Law Greg took my son to pick some peaches off of his peach trees. It was just enough to make peach pie. Nothing reminds me more of summer time than soft sweet peaches.

Lemon Cake 2010

This is a great summer time treat with lemon cake covered with a lemon orange cream cheese frosting.

Fruit Pizza

One of my husband's favorite desserts is this wonder fruit pizza. On a baked sugar cookie is a thin layer of a cream cheese mixture. I cover the mixture with some of my favorite fruits. This one has strawberries, blue berries, black berries, and kiwi. I covered the fruit with a delicious orange glaze. Hmm Hmm Good!

Katey 2009

The is a fondant cake with handmade fondant roses and ribbon. I got to do this cake for a church event, so I added the cake topper to insure the look of a 'wedding cake' since the theme was "The 10 Virgins." It was a beautiful program and I think the cake was a beautiful compliment to the decorations.

Liz 2009

This square cake is so modern and simple. The fondant was so clean and beautiful. The simple ribbons and flowers add a nice sweetness.

Edith 2009

This cake is covered in fondant and hand made fondant roses. The roses took a long time, but the end result is very rewarding. The beading, shells, and lace are covered in platinum dust, plus the roses are lightly brushed with it to give a little shimmer. I really love this cake. :)

Baby Blanket 2009

The cake was yummy. I did cake layers of white, cherry, and chocolate with a raspberry filling.

I wanted it to look like a baby quilt with a cute little lamp made of royal icing. The letters spell the baby's name... Parker. The ruffles are sweet and delicate.

I finished this cake on a Friday night and had my baby Chase the next day on Saturday.
