Small, but Sweet!

A small, but ever so sweet cake...this was created for a birthday girl who celebrated her special day by throwing her friend a farewell party! How sweet is that?!? Julie was one of the masterminds behind the NY to San Francisco party and her co-party planner sneakily planned a birthday surprise for her by ordering this cake!

Light pink fondant covered a red velvet cake with vanilla filling and frosting. It was topped with a large fantasy flower and dark chocolate fondant beads...delivered alongside it's buddy cake to Dublin 6 in NYC! :)

Happy Birthday Julie!

From NYC to San Fran!

A sweet friend and an awesome client of mine (she ordered the Broadway cake for her parents) recently accepted a new position with her company...on the west coast!! Her friends planned a goodbye party for her and reached out to me for a cake to represent the city she was leaving and the city she was heading to...NYC to San Fran!

Here's the cake!


The NYC portion of the cake included fondant skyscrapers, a Statue of Liberty, yellow cabs, and a Broadway show sign.

The San Francisco portion of the cake included the iconic Golden Gate Bridge as well as the Fisherman's Wharf sign.

Topped with well wishes, the cake was delivered to Dublin 6 in NYC for the farewell party!

Missing you in NYC already Lauren!! Hope you're having an awesome time in San Fran! :)

A Rosette Frosted 89th Birthday Cake

A sweet client ordered an 89th birthday cake for her grandmother...in the shape of an "89"! She left the decorating up to me, letting me know that some flowers would be okay...I was so excited because I've been wanting to try a new buttercream decorating trick I saw on I am baker's blog (link below)!

The buttercream is piped on using a flower tip so that when it comes out, it looks like large, (butter)creamy, delectable rosette's! I was thrilled with how it came out, giving the numbers of the cake an unexpected look of softness, rather than the straight lines of smoothed buttercream...

I used a frill cutter to give the "Happy Birthday Vera" letters a place on the cake to stand out among the buttercream rosettes, added some little fondant roses around the base of the cake and a large pink fantasy flower on top as well.


Happy 89th Birthday to Vera!!


Client Testimonial:

"Hi Tara,

Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the beautiful and delicious cake you made for me and my family. It was very impressive; I received many compliments on it. And I loved how you decorated it. (Much classier and more age appropriate than my sprinkles suggestion!) Anyways, it was enjoyed by all and I just wanted you to know.

Thank you,


I am Baker

Sweet Baby Blues

Sweet baby Luca was christened in February and I was so honored to make this cake to celebrate his special day! His mom, Lauren, ordered a delicious combo - one tier was a s'mores flavor (graham cracker cake, marshmallow fluff filling and chocolate buttercream and the other tier was a white cake with chocolate pudding filling and vanilla frosting. Here's the cake!

The little baby blocks were made out of fondant...

The bottom tier was quilted and the top tier had stars and mini edible pearls dotted around the cake.

God Bless Luca Jax!!!
