Hello Kitty Cake (and cupcakes to match)

This month has been filled with cake/cupcake requests and I have had a blast making them.  I made a Hello Kitty cake with matching cupcakes for a friend's daughter's birthday.  The HK cake pan was awesome as all Wilton products are.  I made two layers with a pound cake recipe.  Then I put buttercream between the layers and stood the cake upright.  I made marshmallow fondant to cover the cake - the MMF was fabulous and so easy to work with.  I will never buy fondant again.  Meee-ooowww! 

Happy Birthday Elise!

Happy Birthday Brady!

A good friend has a son who shares my how could cupcakes not be a part of the party?  He had a Despicable Me party and I made a giant two-tiered cupcake for the celebration.

Niobe's Wedding Cake

This cake was very simple and elegant. I made a French vanilla cake with raspberry buttercream filling and wrapped each tier with wild sage and lavender.   A very Tahoe wedding....perfect weather...a friend's yard overlooking Lake niece to help me set up the cake.  Congratulations Niobe and Ladd!
