Lydia Grace's 1st birthday

Well, my sweet friend reminded me that I had uploaded pics of her daughter's cake. (Thanks Jess!!) So, here they are! I made this cake for my friend's daughter's 1st birthday. We happened to be traveling up there way right around her birthday so I packed up my stuff so I could make her a cake. Of course I forgot a bunch of stuff in the process....but it still turned out pretty cute but most importantly it tasted good! It was a peanut butter cake with a peanut butter filling with Reese's cups chopped up in it. I love having fun with flavors!

I'm glad I got to make this cake for Lydia and spend the time with your family, Jess!!

I thought I'd put a post up of different flavor options. I have tried some of these and still want to try many more!! This is just part of a list that was compiled by a wonderful group of people on I love that site!!!

Of course you have these:
Yellow (my sister's all time favorite)
Chocolate (I love the recipe I use for this!!!)
White Almond Sour Cream (might become my sister's new favorite...)
Butter (this has become one of Matt's favorites!)

Then the fun and different cake flavors:
Caramel Banana
Cheescake Lovers
Chocolate Chip Cookie
Cookies & Cream
Graham Cracker cake (great for a S'mores cake!!!)
Orange Dreamsicle (this is so good!!!)
Peanut Butter (I think this is one of my family's favorites!)
Root Beer float
Strawberry (yum!)
Tiramisu (I'm so ready for a chance to make this!)
White Chocolate (very good!)

Some of the fillings I use:

Marshmallow fluff
Truffle (milk, dark, or white chocolate)
Strawberry (or other fruit fillings)

I love combining different cake flavors and fillings and getting things like the Snickers cake, S'mores cake, and Strawberry limeade/lemonade. Basically, you can get ideas from anywhere--your favorite drink or candy bar--it's so much fun!

Another fun flavor combination I'm going to try for my daughter's birthday is Funkey Monkey--peanut butter, banana, and some chocolate!! Yum!

Beach themed birthday cake

I had a request for a birthday cake for a 9 year old girl. Her aunt asked for a beach themed cake and also mentioned that the little girl loved dolphins! This is what Jenn and I came up with. It was a lot of fun to make this cakes! The birthday girl seemed very happy with it when I dropped it off!
