.:Birthday Sheet Cake:.

I tried a new recipe for this one! Mock Angel Food!!! Turned out wonderfully, will be making that one again for sure. This was my first sheet cake, 12x18x2! There was soo much batter, did not fit in my mixer! 16 egg whites in this one! As far as the decorations, they reminded me that I am a beginner and its not as easy as I would like sometimes, its a lot easier to draw out my design I want but doesn't always come out just how I would like.

.:Auntie's Birthday Cake:.


This cake was very special to me, because it was for my Aunt Cloranda! We surprised her for her birthday and I knew I wanted to make a cake, but I didn't know what. We joke that she is my toughest critic, because she also makes cakes sometimes too. I knew she would appreciate it too! My mom helped me decide with this color scheme and we all were happy with how it turned out.

.:Valentine's Day Cakes:.

This was my shot at a marble cake, with chocolate frosting covered in fondont and also an attempt at scroll piping work.
This is a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and chocolate fondont (not homemade :( but worked really really well)

.:Julia's Baptism Cake:.



This cake is a vanilla cake with a vanilla buttercream covered with a yellow fondont. It is for my cousin's Cody and Andrea's new baby girl, Julia's baptism. This is the biggest cake I've made and I am proud of it. All the flowers are hand made and I even had my mom help out with "glueing" the pearl decorations on as the centers of the flowers.

.:Birthday Carrot Cake:.



My aunt(and Godmother!) Carolyn's best friend Susan asked me to make a surprise birthday cake for a little surprise birthday lunch for Carolyn. Her favorite cake is carrot cake, which I've never made before, but I tried and think it turned out good :):) I frosted and decorated with a cream cheese frosting and used some crushed pecans for garnish. My stepdad Jeff has even requested this for his upcoming birthday!
