Belly Dancer Cake

My friend was surprising her husband with a dinner at a Moroccan restaurant with live entertainment from belly dancers.  She asked me to make a simple, fun cake with a belly dancer on it.  It was tough at first, but I ended up having fun with the colors!

Birthday Belly Dancer Cake

I did a 10 inch round chocolate cake, 4 inches high, filled with chocolate & chocolate chip frosting, covered in marshmallow fondant.  To give it a Moroccan theme, I alternated gold and teal rectangles around the sides of the cake with golden pearls.  The dancer & writing were printed with edible ink on rice paper.

Lakers Birthday Cake


A friend of mine asked me to surprise her husband with a Lakers cake for his birthday!  He's a chocolate lover, so I made a chocolate 4 inch high, 10 inch round cake, filled & covered with milk chocolate frosting .  I topped the cake with melted chocolate in the shape of the Lakers logo.

Baby Dedication Cupcakes

My twins were dedicated to our Lord at Knott Avenue Christian Church and I had time to make some strawberry and white cupcakes for their lunch reception.  I topped each cupcake with homemade butter cream frosting & a white chocolate cross.
My friend also made white chocolate lollipops in the shape of hands praying and crosses attached with customized tags as favors for all our guests. So cute! Loved the display!
