Meeska, Mooska, Mickey Mouse!

I don't have cable, so I don't know what Mickey Mouse is up to these days. Apparently he has a Clubhouse. I know I'll be back in the loop with children's television once I have kids. Believe you me, my kids will love Mickey and anything Disney, because I do!

Anyways, here's a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake:

Yesterday it was 105°. The birthday party for this cake was at a park. The heat definitely took a toll on this cake. I'm glad I got a picture of it before the sun beat it up.


My first hockey-themed cake! Now that I think of it, I haven't made many sports-themed cakes. Weird.

For the L.A. Kings. Pride=Passion=Power=Yum!


When I got this order for a Labyrinth cake I was so excited. But when it came to actually making it, I had trouble coming up with a design. The birthday girl loves David Bowie, the worm and the masquerade masks in the movie. I decided to go with the worm since he's so cute. Creating him out of fondant wasn't easy though. I'm not an artist/sculptor in any sort of way. I think the worm turned out ok. Next time I'll do a masquerade mask. haha

America's Favorite Ketchup

I gave away a custom cake on my Facebook page a couple weeks ago. I got around 75 fans because of it. So awesome! The winner of the cake requested a ketchup bottle cake for her son's surprise birthday party. I guess he loves ketchup? Ranch > Ketchup... just sayin'. :)

Their last name is Hein, so I removed the "z" and boom: Hein Birthday Ketchup. So perfect! PS I'm aware the top circle label still says Heinz. :P Oops!

I Love You, Cupcake!

Working for Hot Topic has allowed my love for Gir to grow ridiculous amounts. I love that crazy robot. You know what's the best part about him? He loves cupcakes! My honorary niece, Miranda, turned 13 yesterday. She loves Gir and cupcakes, too, so this was the perfect opportunity to combine the two in a cake!

So much cute!

So Yummy! So Yummy!

I LOVE The Aquabats. If you're super rad, you know that Christian Jacobs aka The MC Bat Commander created Yo Gabba Gabba! I love the show so I always enjoy making a Yo Gabba Gabba! themed cake.

If someone requested a Digital Unicorn cake, that would be awesome.

Blast Off

Another Toy Story themed cake! This one looks like it's just a space themed cake, but I didn't have to cake topper when I took the picture. The lady who ordered the cake sent me a picture of the topper and asked for a space cake in matching colors. Done and done!

Here's the candle topper:

And the cake:

Beat Drums! Beat Drums!

The snazzy @c_johns hit me up awhile ago about making a cake for her boyfriend. He loves the Muppets and he's a drummer, so an Animal cake was the only way to go!

I forgot to get a picture of the side of the cake. It looks like a drum, so Animal is bustin' through it.


I've been wanting to make a zombie cake for-ev-er and I finally got a request for one! Woo hoo! It was a small cake, so I kept it simple. Some zombie silhouettes around the side and a huge, gooey brain on top. The undead never looked so yummy!

Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man

Spider-Man isn't my favorite superhero, but I've decided I LOVE making Spider-Man cakes! Instead of doing a web print on the cake, this time I went with a cityscape theme. I added a couple spiders, too.


Anpanman is a Japanese cartoon character. I had never heard of him until someone requested this cake. I still don't know anything about him. He's cute though!

Cat in the Hat

I love Dr. Seuss. Who doesn't?? He's a childhood staple! I remember when my mom made me and my sister green eggs and ham. We were SO excited, until it was time to eat. All of a sudden we were grossed out, even though she just used food coloring. She had to talk us into eating the food and we were convinced it didn't taste the same. haha Oh, the memories!

Here's a Cat in the Hat themed cake.

I hope I get to make a One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish someday!
