Baby Shower Animal Cake

Posted on October 27th, 2010 in Cakes

The following creations were only additions to the main Tres Leches cake.  Because the Tres Leches cake is such a moist cake, it cannot be easily decorated, so I had to think on how to make it into a cake that the mommy to be would like (more on this type of cake below).

A giraffe, an elephant, a monkey and a lion around the baby blanket, Oh My! I really loved how it turned out!


For the main cake, we prepared a Mexican tradition called Tres Leches Cake. This cake is sooo moist and has a unique delicious flavor that’s hard to resist. On top of the cake we have a pair of baby booties with a little dove on the front. The sex of the baby was unknown, so I was safe to go with a gold color ribbon.

I had the pleasure to work on these creations for a beautiful lady that gave me the opportunity to make her wedding cake a few years ago.  I was very happy to share her joy again with this dessert.

Congratulations to you and your family Ana!

Baptism Cake – Baby Mario

Posted on August 22nd, 2010 in Cakes

This post is also a special one for me and my family. My new nephew, baby Mario, was baptized at our church St. Francis of Assisi. I was honored to make his cake and I was happy with hit!

I loved the topper. It is a embossed cross and christening baby booties. This top tier was chocolate butter cake with buttercream filling. Three looped crosses decorate the cake.

The bottom tier was Tropical Cake, buttercream and raspberry filling, and it is covered in light blue colored stripes.

And a final look of the baby booties.

Cute uh? The baptism was very nice and after the service we headed to the reception where they had lots of good Mexican food.

Congratulations baby Mario.
