Feeling the love.

It’s Valentine’s Day, and I don’t know about you, but I LOVE all the colors and decorations associated with the day. Pinks, reds and hearts? It can’t get any better. Especially when you combine them with some sweet treats!

Peacock and pops

That was my life for awhile. A whole lotta cake pops and whole lotta peacock.

Let them eat cake!

Or, cupcakes.

I made some Marie Antoinette inspired cupcakes for one of my best friend’s gorgeous bridal showers.

He? She? What will it be?!

If you haven’t heard, gender reveal cakes are my favorite. Do you want to know what makes them even better? Doing one for one of my best friends.

It all started at the ultrasound appointment where I first met the little one:

The blondes in this picture knew what the gender was…but the momma-to-be and her mom had no idea!FullSizeRender

They had two long days to wait before the gender reveal party!

Boy or Girl?

Gender reveals have got to be my favorite thing to do! Not only do I get to know a huge secret before most of the world, I get to play a really fun part of a great day for expecting parents.

Here’s a buttercream beauty with hand-placed sprinkles…lots and lots of hand-placed sprinkles. Still finding pink and blue sprinkles in the kitchen.

There’s blue frosting in that cake…just like these cute matching cupcakes:

Gorgeous Graeagle Wedding

I am more and more impressed with every wedding that I make a cake for…brides are amazing and create gorgeous fairytale scenes!

This August wedding at a private estate in Graeagle is one of my favorite weddings I’ve seen. Everything is just perfect! Nothing beats a bride with impeccable taste. And the weather? The pictures could not be any prettier (Thanks to Handlebar Studios: http://handlebarstudios.com/)

The prettiest flowers for this cake:

Current fave: Textured buttercream and basic flowers

I love these simple, beautiful cakes.

I found these flowers in my backyard and they were the perfect touch for this textured cake for a couple to bring up to Lake Tahoe.

In fact, I love them so much, I made another similar one for a BBQ I went to:

Both of these cakes were almond with raspberry filling!

Simple beauty.

I recently did a wedding cake for a couple getting married at Rancharrah. I was excited to see this venue because I’ve never been there. It’s gorgeous! And, I love the simple beauty the bride wanted for her cake. The flowers by A Floral Affair (Kelly Jo did my wedding flowers, too!) were the perfect finish for the cake.

I love the vintage dishes to serve the cake on:DSC_0288

It was so bright outside when I was taking these photos that I couldn’t see the screen so I was just guessing. Well, when I got back to a computer to view the photos, I saw that there was a trash can in the background with TRASH written very prominently… and it showed up right next to my cake. Luckily, I have some Photoshop skills that helped me at least kind of make it disappear from the photos:

My Little Cupcakes

I mean…My Little Pony Cupcakes! (Must still have that giant cupcake on the brain!)

One of the cutest little girls I know turned 5 and My Little Pony cupcakes were on order!

These little girls schooled me on the names of all the ponies (is that right? Gah, that word looks weird) on the cupcakes…from Apple Jack… to… I’m already lost…Rainbow something.

How cute are the birthday girl and her cousin enjoying these birthday cupcakes?!
