Life's a Beach Baby!

Really another beach cake? Yes! But everyone has been a little different. This was for one of daughter #1's great friends. She was having her party at a water park with a beach theme...or so was the plan :) (it rained cats and dogs all day long...) They had a great time despite and hopefully enjoyed the cake. This cake was chosen by the girl..and I was happy to try something new. The cake was Strawberry Cake with a Vanilla Cream Cheese filling along with Strawberry glaze. I also made her Strawberry Cake Ball Truffles dipped in Milk Chocolate and drizzled with white chocolate. My kids are now all calling for Strawberry cakes for their next birthday...they devoured any extra cake scraps and the truffles.

Happy Birthday Farm

Happy first birthday Maddie! This was so fun to make. I was so happy to make this cake for a little girl I know turning one. She loves farm animals and so it fit. I did the barn in pink...and made the little "smash" cake to match. The best part was seeing the pictures of her smashing and eating the cake! The cake itself was chocolate fudge with a cream cheese chocolate filling and a drizzle of caramel. I was much happier with all of the animals this time around.
