Train Cake

This was a cake I did for a friend of a friend. Cassie, the mom, lives in California but was coming to Utah to celebrate her little boy's 2nd birthday. She had seen some cakes I did for other people and decided to give me a call. The theme was trains so we decided on a 3 car train filled with candy. She suggested we fill it with old fashioned candies like you'd find in a soda shop. Such a great idea. She wanted to keep the cake flavor simple, which I try to avoid :) I did a cinnamon vanilla cake with a cinnamon brown sugar frosting. Super yum. The entire cake was a blast to put together I'm so glad for the opportunity. Happy Birthday Beckham!

Teddy Bear Cake

I did this cake for one of my favorite neighbors. Her adorable little girl was turning 1 and they wanted a special cake to celebrate. The only criteria I had was that it needed to look girly. I did a striped/polka dot combo with pinks, purple, lime green and light brown. I did a teddy bear on top with a number 1 on her belly. The cake was vanilla with a deathly delicious brown sugar Swiss meringue. I hope everyone enjoyed it!!
