Lilly Pulitzer Cake and Flower Bouquet Cookies

Country chic and vintage is in!  I think the only way you might have missed that is if you’ve been living under a rock.  Just teasing. But lace details, rustic elegance, shabby chic…they’re all the rage right now.

So when Chloe turned 18 (remember Chloe’s 16th birthday cake?), that’s what she wanted!  She chose a cake inspired by the Lilly Pulizer First Impression pattern.

Lilly Pulitzer-inspired birthday cake!

Hadley’s Chevron First Birthday Cake

Last month, I created a cake for my birthday buddy!  Hadley was born on March 13th just like me….only 31 years later…  Anyway, we will forever be birthday buddies!

Her Mommy planned this super fun Pancakes & Pajama Party and gave me complete free reign to design the cake. The only request was that I use pink and yellow.  Hadley’s Mommy is very crafty and loves to sew so I definitely wanted to incorporate some fabric effects onto the cake.  I also happen to know that she loves chevron prints so that was a must too.

Hadley's pink and yellow cake with chevron print and a fondant dress bow.

Be sure to check out all the details of the party on the Tampa Bay Mom’s Blog.  So cute and so do-able!

Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Cake!

Here’s another fun party we came across while going through old cake photos.  Back in June, we created a full spread for Raigan’s 1st birthday.

Let’s start with the party cake, which was white almond cake with Bavarian Cream filling. Yum! Raigan’s Mommy, Holli, helped design the cake based on Dr. Seuss’ book Oh, the Places You’ll Go.   Raigan's 1st birthday cake - Oh the Places You'll Go!

The ombre effect is so popular in cakes right now!  The most common way to use it is with ombre ruffles, and it creates such a whimsical, girly feel.  Love it!

First, here is the birthday cake:Purple ombre ruffles adorned the bottom tier of Aariya's birthday cake.  It was an affair fit for a princess!

Princess Belle-Inspired Birthday Cake

Going through some old cake photos, and we just found this one!  Can’t believe we never posted it, but here is Gwenan’s 3rd birthday cake.

Princess Belle-themed birthday cake with edible tiara topper.

It was Princess Belle-inspired with baby pink, true pink, and pale yellow fondant.  We used a little bit of stripes, dots, quilting, and flowers to make this cake elegant and feminine.  And we topped the whole thing with an edible tiara airbrushed gold.

Susan G Komen 3-Day – Tampa 2013

Today marks the last first day of the Tampa Susan G Komen 3-Day for the Cure.  That’s right, the last first day.  The 3-Day is leaving Tampa after this year’s event.

Cake made for a Susan G Komen fundraiser

Mel walked in her first 3-Day when her older daughter was only 6 weeks old, and then she walked again the following year when she was a few weeks pregnant.  This year, Mel was unable to walk, but she supported other walkers by donating to their fundraising efforts.  The cake pictured above was just one of the items Mel donated to help raise money for breast cancer research and awareness.

To all the men and women who are self-sacrificing enough to walk 60 miles in 3 days: You go! You are our heroes! Thank you for what you’re doing!
