Christmas is by far and away my favorite holiday. I love celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, the feeling you get during this time, winter, snow, baking smells from the kitchen, decorating the tree, gathering together with family, shopping... you name it. I got a jump start this year on my holiday cakes. This is a Christmas ornament cake that I absolutely love. It is a chocolate cake covered in fondant.
Last October I took an introductory cake decorating class and fell in love with it. I love the many challenges and the rewards that cake brings. I have made many cakes for friends and learned a little more with each one of them. What started as a hobby is now my focus and (hopefully) soon will be a business.
Here are some of the cakes I have made so far.
This is the first cake I made for someone else and ALSO my first fondant cake.
I love this design for Alexis' princess party!
This is a ladybug cake made for Miss Corbyn's 1st birthday.
It was a yellow cake covered with marshmallow fondant.
This cake taught me a big lesson in tinting icing red and black!
The cake pictured here is the main cake for the party.
To go with the cake I threw in ladybug cupcakes.
They are yellow cake as well with buttercream frosting.
They went perfect with the theme!
What is a 1st birthday party without a SMASH cake for the birthday girl?

They are great when you need an alternative to traditional cake and can come in many colors and flavors.
