"Dia de los Muertos" ["Day of the Dead"]

I was hired to make a traditional Dominican cake with a modern twist... 
the theme was "Dia de los Muertos"

FYI... a traditional Domican cake is covered and decorated with suspiro... which is super yummy but definitely NOT the easiest of things to work with (lol).

I really wanted to incorporate an edible skull in my design but I was worried it would be too heavy and sink into the cake (lol) so... I made sure to leave some room on the side of the cake for it :) 

Dominican cake with dulce de leche filling and suspiro frosting... yummy :)
Edible Skull :)

I really enjoyed making this cake... and I can't wait to perfect my suspiro skills (lol).
Hope my client likes it :)

St Patrick's Day

St Patty's Day is a big holiday for my coworkers so... I really wanted to bake something festive. These cuppies are chocolate Guinness filled with chocolate ganache and frosted with a Bailey's Irish buttercream... yummy :)

I can not wait to bring these to work!!!  
They're the perfect after work "happy hour" cuppies and would make a great St Patty's day gifts.  
I hope to sell out of them quickly :)

"Kiss me, I'm Irish"

Enjoy :)

Cookies n' Cream

I baked these yummy MINI cuppies for our Interns last day.
What better way to say "Goodbye & Good Luck" than with yummy cuppies (lol).

As I was sitting in my kitchen last night, thinking about what flavor to bake, it hit me... Cookies n' Cream would be PERFECT!  I mean... who wouldn't LOVE a cuppie that has the best of both worlds?!?!?  Not only is the combination of Vanilla AND Chocolate perfect, but the cake is super moist and it tastes absolutely AMAZING!!!    

MINI cuppie with a mini Oreo baked in with vanilla buttercream topped with a mini Oreo and crumbs... Yummy :)
the C n' C fam... a mix of Regular and MINI cuppies

All boxed up and ready-to-go...
I made a dz topped with mini Oreos and a dz without :)

She was one of the good ones and we're really going to miss her :(
Nicole... I hope you like them!

A very LEGO birthday...

I had a great time working on this weekend's order... a LEGO themed cake for a very special boy... My husband's Godson :)

Here are the first round of pictures... these were taken before the topper was complete...

and here's the finished product...

The #6 was handmade with fondant and was fragile... I was worried it might crack or break in transit so... for these pictures, I decided to lay it on the cake... I didn't want to risk it.  But... once it was delivered, it stood right next to the LEGO boy :)

I absolutely LOVED the LEGO baseboard!!!  It was a great touch!
My Hubby helped me put it together... I love you babe :)

The cake was a hit and I rec'd great feedback :)
I can't wait to start working on the next one!

Enjoy :)
