Power Rangers Cake

Every November, as wedding season comes to a close, I get to celebrate big with a birthday party for my son, Ethan. His latest and greatest passion is Power Rangers...this is the cake we came up with. We used his coloring book to scan edible images onto the sides of the cake. The mask is hand-sculpted from cake and fondant. Serves 70.

Sex and the City Cake

The perfect cake for the modern girl who loves handbags and presents (isn't that every girl?) I hope Carrie would have approved.

Mini-Cakes for the 30th Birthday Bash

Celebrate BIG with something very small -- an individual mini-cake created for each guest. These are decorated with pearlized white fondant and a chocolate brown bow, adorned with an edible gift tag.
