This ended up being such a fun theme and I loved putting together the stacked barn cake and mini-cupcakes to celebrate Maddie’s big day! Her party was held outside at the Barton Hills Farm and keeping with the theme, I created the chocolate barn cake which was covered in red fondant and dark modeling chocolate. The chocolate and vanilla cupcakes were topped with cows, pigs, and chicks, all created out of fondant, and iced in vanilla buttercream frosting.
To celebrate Ella’s birthday, her family had a theme of pink birds with green feathers. I created toppers for the cupcakes out of royal icing – half of them with the pink birds and half with the letter ‘e’, all with the pink and green theme in mind, and of course, a smash cake for the birthday girl. Happy Birthday Miss Ella!
Sweet Amelia’s first birthday had a butterfly theme. I created vanilla cake pops half with chocolate butterflies, and half flowers, all in pastel colors, as well as a small smash cake for the birthday girl.
Reid had a Thomas the Train themed birthday party and I created a two-tiered cake iced in bright blue buttercream with red fondant stripes. I also made a Thomas the Train placard, Reid’s name, and the number 3 out of royal icing. Happy Birthday Reid – it looks like you had a blast at your party!

Charlee loves Minnie Mouse, so I made a cake inspired by the character which included a silhouette of Minnie’s head made from homemade modeling chocolate, complete with red fondant bow. The cake itself was iced in red buttercream with white fondant dots and a pearl border which I created using pearl dust on the fondant.
My friend Emlyn wanted to get a cake made for one of her co-worker’s birthdays. I created a chocolate cake with fresh strawberries and sugared grapes. This was my first try and making sugar grapes and they not only tasted amazing, I thought they brought a more elegant look to the cake. Happy Birthday Ilene!
Shelley’s kiddo was having a Spider-Man themed birthday party so I created vanilla cupcakes with webs and a larger cake with Spidey’s face on it. Making webs is lots of work! Apologies for the children’s red tongues! They were probably red for days! Happy Birthday!
It was all things pink and girly to welcome baby Eleanor to this sweet family. I created pink cake pop baby rattles and blocks accented with yellow. Also, I made chocolate cupcakes with the baby’s name to celebrate. Congratulations Amy!
Ray’s birthday happened to fall on the same night as a Chasca performance, so keeping with the theme, I created purple cake balls complete with music notes and gold glitter.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar was the theme for Landry’s 1st Birthday, so I created cake balls in two shades of green, as well as a caterpillar face smash cake for the birthday boy.
