Graduation Cake

Congratulation to all to the 2011 Graduates!

This is was such a fun cake that included so many different parts of the graduate's life!
I like the end result because it had a more mature look as well. The graduate's mother and I made sure to incorporate the sports he played and the school mascot as well as the logo of the university he is headed to.



Easy Fix for that Chocolate Craving!

So, I'll admit it I get the occasional chocolate craving. Am I alone in this? I'm thinking, no! I'm talking the craving that has you rummaging...ok, tearing through the pantry in search of that chocolate goody that may have slipped to the back. Such disappointment when you come up empty handed. So, then you head to the cookbook only realize that you don't have a complete list of ingredients for any recipe you have!!

Well, here is the answer the that chocolate dilemma!

Mod Baby Shower

I love, love, love this cake!

The request was for a cake that would not be the typical baby boy shower cake. Orange, blue and avocado green were the colors for this non-traditional baby shower!

Simple, modern and oh, so sweet!

The flavors were a chocolate with chocolate cream cheese filling on the bottom and the mother-to-be had her favorite on top, coconut!
