It's All About The Cake

A few years ago, I took some cake decorating classes at Michael's. I absolutely loved it!! Since then I have been obsessed! I love going to the bookstore and checking out the new cake decorating books. The cupcake and cookie decorating ones are great also. Of course I have a bunch in my collection!

The decorating classes are based on the Wilton decorating method. It was really fun and inexpensive. I highly recommend trying it out. You can also take these classes at Joann's Craft Store as well.

Here are a few favorite cakes that I have made:

1. 2.
3. 4.
  1. Sleeping Beauty cake I made for my daughter Olivia's 3rd birthday

  2. Pink & Brown cake for my daughter Ruby's 1st birthday

  3. Hydrangea cake I made based on a cake from the Confetti Cakes Cookbook

  4. Baby carriage cake

  5. Captain America's Shield for my husband Tony - he's a BIG Captain America fan!!

Some of my favorite sites for cake decorating are Cake Central (I have photos posted there), The Charm City Cakes Website (from the show Ace of Cakes on the Foodnetwork), Confetti Cakes -a bakery in NYC., Wilton - lots of things to buy and fun decorating ideas. I also had a subscription to American Cake Decorating Magazine.

I posted a bunch of cakes on Flickr - check ti out at or click on the FLickr badge on the right sidebar.

My latest challenge is Olivia's next birthday. She's going to be 5 in less than a month and she wants a bubble gum birthday cake. I have some ideas in mind so I'll post them as it gets closer.
