February is a busy month for us. My husband and daughter’s birthday’s are a week apart. This year, my daughter decided to bake a cake for her dad! She was determined to do it all by herself. This is a three layer chocolate cake frosted with a rich chocolate frosting! She decorated it with M &M’s , Kit-kat bars, Mars, chocolate pearls and lots of sprinkles. I was proud of her for not just baking the cake but also for cleaning up the mess. I have been obsessed with cakes lately. So I have been experimenting, like this drip cake I saw from Sweetapolita’s blog! This is a six layer cookies and cream cake that I baked for my friend . . . CLICK TO READ MORE

My little one recently celebrated her 10th birthday! This year she decided to have a art/paint party at the local Painting with a twist. I made two cakes, one was a doodle cake where the kids got to write sweet messages for the birthday girl with edible markers and the other was a purple galaxy rainbow cake (daughter’s favorite color) with lots of sprinkles. Sprinkles were ordered from Sweetapolita’s Etsy shop! The inspiration for this cake is from Sweetapolita’s blog. I combined two of Rosie’s recipes- one from her book and the other from the blog. There are six colorful layers tucked inside this cake and is frosted with my favorite Swiss Meringue Buttercream! The cake topper was ordered from . . . CLICK TO READ MORE

Happy Birthday Meghna!

DSC_0497

Yay!! Today is my daughter’s birthday! We celebrated it over the weekend at a gymnastic club. The kids had an awesome time. My little one’s only request was for a two tier cake. Keeping with the theme colors, I made a 3 layer (8 inch) chocolate cake and topped it with a 2 layer (6 inch) vanilla cake. For the chocolate cake I used this recipe and this for the vanilla cakes. Both the cakes were made using Sweetapolita’s recipes and they turned out yummy! The ruffles were made using an Ateco 104 tip and with my favorite Swiss Meringue Buttercream ( 15 cups of it). This was my first attempt at a two tier and I was mighty stressed. . . . CLICK TO READ MORE

Cake-3

Pink Rose Cake And A Photo shoot I had planned a completely different post for this week, but just had to share these gorgeous clicks by my dear friend and the amazingly talented Sherri of Sherrikellyphotography. Last week Sherri ordered a Pink Rose Cake for a smash cake photo shoot. Sherri takes the most amazing pictures ever! To see more of her work, please check her website. I ended up making two rose cakes. One was for this shoot and I had an extra layer of cake and lots of icing left so I made another cake for my daughter as a little surprise treat from school. Of course that picture is taken from my I-phone.         . . . CLICK TO READ MORE
