Balls for Easter bunnies & a baby’s birthday


Cover of Real Simple magazine.  Just kidding. Vin’s just really good @ this photography thing <3 I have to warn you; there are “TWSS” situations coming up.  =D I’m sorry for the lack of new posts.  I’ve been out of commission for the past month+ due to medical issues. I’m pissed @ myself for missing […]

THE drum set cake.


To date, this is my masterpiece.  I was thinking of making a cake for Vin’s nephew’s birthday party, and since I know Jeremy prizes his drums and it’s his 10th birthday, I suggested making a cake that looked like his drum set.  I think I may have been on drugs at the time, thinking I […]

Domo-kun: "Otanjoubi omedetou!" *


*”Happy birthday” in Japanese I had a fantastic birthday weekend… more like birthday WEEK.  Vin took me on a long-awaited, much needed vacation to Riviera Maya and we ate/drank/got crazy tan lines while everyone else was dealing with a snowstorm in the Northeast.  Then we come back to NY and had a whole smoked pig […]

Pineapple upside down cakes… take two!


 A friend heard that I made pineapple upside down cakes in cupcake form and placed an order for a dozen.  Now, I can’t just make 12 cupcakes.  It’s like… only performing a third of a classical masterpiece such as, say…  “Liebestraume” and leaving it at that.  Nooo… I made extra batter, more caramel and opened […]

Bones & Blossoms & Boxes


I must have not been thinking straight last week because I took on a double order for Saturday.  During one of the most insane work weeks ever. While practically OD’ing on precautionary vitamins and supplements and even when I had the slightest tickle in my throat because I was surrounded by sniffling and sneezing and […]



My first official order: 2 dozen custom Pinkalicious cupcakes for a coworker’s daughter’s class birthday. I didn’t even know what Pinkalicious was, but said yes I’d make them anyway. Upon googling, Pinkalicious is a series of kids books about a little girl that eats so many pink cupcakes that she turns pink. On the cover […]

Butterfly cupcakes


I made vanilla cupcakes with white and lavender vanilla frosting for my soon-to-be-sister-in-law’s bridal shower. The little butterflies are made of edible rice paper. Not my fanciest work, but the little cupcakes still looked cute.

Penny’s birthday


Little Penelope turned one in September and the theme of her party was ladybugs! I made a strawberry cake with pinkish-red raspberry frosting and black chocolate frosting. Her cake turned out super cute!

Little Pat’s birthday


Vin’s nephew Patrick was born shortly after our wedding last year, and for his first birthday I wanted to bake something. Ice cream cone cupcakes seemed like a brilliant idea for a little boy’s birthday! Vanilla cake was baked inside and then I filled them with vanilla frosting. I made blue frosting and tried to […]
