Ruffle Rainbow Cake

Posted on September 6th, 2015 in Cakes

I made this cake for my nice Layla who celebrated her 4th year last August. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take a lot of pictures because I finished only a few minutes before my SIL came to pick it up.

Puppy Love Cake

Posted on October 12th, 2013 in Cakes, Cookies

About a month ago, my wonderful sister in law gave me the opportunity to design and create a cake to celebrate her daughter’s 2nd birthday. I always appreciate the freedom of her cake requests. She provides a main theme and several sources of inspiration, but she lets me play with the final cake design.

For Layla’s birthday she asked for a Puppy, multilevel cake. I later received a picture of the beautiful dress Layla would be wearing at the party. Amy also added a few cake ideas on her Pinterest board and the rest was up to me. Love it!!

Here is a collage that features most of the details of the cake.

A red doggy collar with a shimmering silver buckle is the detail that separates the tiers. Now I wish I would have made a dog leash… maybe next time.

A set of cute and playful puppies are the main details of this birthday cake. Since the puppies are all females, I folded stripes of fondant and used them to create the little flowers that you see by their ears. The pink one has a couple of bows though….¬†with lots of shimmering dust.

Black set of puppy paws are placed on the front of the top tier. I also made smaller gray and brown paws, but they are on the sides and back (and I didn’t take a picture). The doggy bone accents the bottom tier and emphasizes the 2nd birthday.

And here’s a final look of the cake before getting into the cookie part. Oh, cake flavors include Almond cake and Strawberry cake.

Here are the sugar decorated cookies. I absolutely love the many possibilities to decorate Scotty cookies. Their little vest are very versatile and could be well adopted to any color scheme.

A few more doggy cookies. Since I don’t know the specific breed of this cookie cutter, we can assume is a lovely and faithful mutt.

There you go. A wonderful set of treats for a puppy/dog lover of any age. In this case, my now 2 year old niece Layla.


I hope you had a fun and beautiful birthday.

Whimsical Cake for Layla

Posted on February 26th, 2013 in Cakes, Other Sweet Treats

In the next few days I’ll be adding several post of desserts I have made… in the past. Lets say, ways back in the past.

2012 was a year of lots of sweets and treats that unfortunately didn’t get posted. So I am planning of showing the pictures and later adding the very important details about each and every event.

So with that, and your apology in advance, we’ll get started.
