Rockets Fan

For a darling 10-year-old boy who is such a huge Houston Rockets fan that the Rockets' mascot, Clutch, was going to make an appearance and entertain the kids at his birthday party. Fun!


For our uber-eco-conscious friend who is celebrating her 40th birthday by planting 40 trees on the family farm just west of Houston. Marbled green and blue fondant covers the Northern Hemisphere-shaped cake and 20 trees (I couldn't fit 40) are piped around the sides. Top dome layer is chocolate-chocolate chip, bottom layer is White Almond Sour Creme. With plenty of buttercream in between.

Fischer Price Farm Animals

This was the 1-year birthday cake for a little girl who adores her vintage Fischer Price farm animals and carries them with her everywhere she goes. I just love that little white hen!


These were for the brother of the Hannah Montana birthday girl below. The siblings have birthdays very close together, so they share a big birthday party every year. R2D2 was chocolate, Hannah Montana was white sour creme.

Hannah Montana

Guitar cake and cookie party favors for a little one who LOVES Hannah Montana.

This baby girl floats amongst the clouds and stars, resting her head on a sliver of moon. Mom was having contractions at the shower today so maybe the babe will be here sooner rather than later! Love these babycakes!

Girls' Basketball

For a high school (senior) basketball star who loves the color pink. That's the number she's worn since she started her career. White princess sour creme cake with buttercream icing and pink, pink, pink fondant.

Rocket Man

A baby shower cake to match the little dude's nursery bedding theme of rocketships. Those are the rockets around the edge of the cake -- in the process of taking off. Great loads of buttercream "steam" forming the border. And he sleeps in the clouds with his pacifier and fondant blankie 'til it's time to be born.

Welcome, Matthias!

Off to Disneyland

A Minnie Mouse Ears Hat cake for the going-away party for a young woman leaving Houston for an internship at Disneyland. The internet tells me this is the typical Minnie Ears hat for sale at Disneyland ... let's hope so. The back says, "Good Luck! We will miss you!"

My standard white sour creme cake with buttercream icing and fondant. The ears are cardboard, painted with a black sharpie and trimmed out in black royal icing.
