J.Lo Meet J.KA!
James (who asked me last time to make the boobies cake…) had another special cake request. He wanted to recreate Jennifer Lopez’s green dress she wore to the Grammy’s in 2000. My, how time flies! But here’s a picture for those of you who don’t remember (or maybe weren’t even born yet!! yikes!)
Brushed lots of layers of edible paint to make it look as similar to the dress as possible! =P
But we had to incorporate the J.Lo loving birthday boy somehow, so James thought of this!! Helllloooooo J.Ka!!
ahahaha Poor Jason looks a little embarrassed. ehehhe… Hope you loved it! Happy birthday you leap year baby!
Another Day, Another Kitty
Steve’s cousin (Will, not Calvin ;P ehehhe) asked if I could make a Hello Kitty cake for his boss. I can basically make this Hello Kitty head cake in my sleeeeep!! zZzZzzZzzZZzZ… ahaha just kidding! I wish!
Regardless of how many times I make this cake, the ones who receive it are always different and always so happy with their cakes!
That’s Steve’s cousin! :P Happy Birthday again Mama Bear!! :D
Gotta Catch Em All!!
Nikki asked me to make a cake for her boyfriend’s 25th birthday. She calls him Snorlax, probably for the obvious reason that he sleeps a lot… :P and wanted to include a few characters with the cake. As well as Snorlax eating a nice warm bowl of pho! YUM! My FAVORITE!
Close up of the pho!! It came out pretty cool!!! :P
Pictures from the dinner! Customers always feel so guilty stabbing candles into my cakes… It’s OKAY guys!! =P
Oh noooooo!! ;P
Chocolate and nutella mousse! :D
Only time you can have pho for dessert!! ehhehe.
Quack Quack!! Rubber Ducky!
Joanna asked if I could make a rubber ducky cake for her boyfriend’s younger brother. Actually to be more specific, they wanted a rubber ducky with some Ray Ban Wayfarers on. What a cool duck!!
Side view ;P
Needless to say, he loved his birthday surprise!
Suddenly understanding why they wanted to give him a rubber ducky cake with Ray Bans on… hehehehe jk! HAPPY BIRTHDAY AGAIN DK!!
Sports Themed Baby Shower
Katy (Hi Katy! ahaha) asked me to make a sports themed baby shower for her friend. She sent me a picture of what she liked and I went to work! (as usual!)
And as usual, my clients ALWAYS make my cakes look better with their dessert tables!
My oh so very special little bro, Bryan asked me to make a cake for his girlfriend’s birthday. “The cake would be ideal for January 19th but the 23rd will work too!!” said his text message. So on January 18th I asked him to send me pictures of Superdog so I can make the cake for him. And he sends me this…
Superdog is the stuffed animal by the way… The real dog, Buddy, is totally irrelevant… CUTE! but unnecessary… thanks little bro. Good picture.
So January 19th just so happened to fall on a Tuesday, which was my day off, so I was texting him throughout the day asking if I could delay pick up time because I had to run errands, do laundry, etc… basically everything was just taking longer than expected. At 1pm I asked him if he could come at 2, then at 2 I asked him to come at 3… I did this for a good 4 hours. Finally I was like “IT’S READY!! COME PICK IT UP!!” To which he responded “I thought the cake was going to be for the 23rd?”
Whyyyyyyyyyy would I be texting you all day delaying pick up time if it was for the 23rd?!?!?!?!?
I told you my little bro was super special… ANYWAYS. He came to pick it up later that night and surprised Lana with it that very same day! ahahah
She loved her cake as much as she loves her stuffed animal!! =)
They stored the cake in the fridge and saved it for the 23rd afterall and it was still SUPER delicious. :P
That’s jealousy written all over that little boys face. ahahaha HAPPY BIRTHDAY AGAIN LANA! Little bro you still owe me a dinner. >=T
Welcome Little Monkey!
Katy (definitely one of my favorite clients! ehehe. Hi Katy!!) asked me to make a simple baby shower cake. All she wanted was a little monkey peeking out of the cake! Sometimes simplicity is key. It turned out so cute! :D
My sister literally went bananas over this cake! It was her new favorite… until I made an Angels cake… :P
Chevron has been the latest trend in print pattern. They have the pattern on pillows, blankets, curtains, picture frames, and now even cakes! I was asked to make this Carrie Sellman inspired cake for a birthday party. I made a few changes to the original and it turned out pretty darn amazing if I do say so myself! =)
This also took much much MUCH longer than I had anticipated, but it was all worth it!!
Chevron may be my new favorite pattern as well! ;P
Animal Print Baby Shower
Shirleen was hosting a baby shower for her friend and came up with the most incredible theme!! She showed me all her decorations and I made her the perfect cake to match!
Zebra and Giraffe print!!
Close up of the topper
Pictures from the amazing party!!
Look how perfectly everything matched!!
So cute! Marshmallow pops and Rice krispies pops!!
Congratulations again!! and Welcome Baby Logan!
Cheryl asked if I could make a snake cake for her sister’s 21st birthday. Mel has always been into snakes (EKKKKKKK!!!) so Cheryl thought it would make the perfect gift in cake form! :) GROSSSSSS.
I tried to make it as realistic as I could, but it still came out a little cartoonish! :T Must keep working on my realism.
At least I got the scales!
Happy 21st birthday again Mel!! :D
Karen asked me to make a LeBron shoe for her sisters 21st birthday! I’m not a huge fan of LeBron (BOOOOOO MIAMI!!!) but I had always wanted to get my hands at making a shoe cake, so I had to say yes!! =)
She sent me a picture of the shoe for me to work with…
And I went to work!! :P
Kathy LOVED her shoe cake so much! She didn’t have the heart to cut it open, she just made it apart of her collection instead! ;P
Happy 21st Birthday again Kathy! =)
Winston’s 100 Days! <3
For Winston’s 100 days, my uncle Ricardo thought it would be fun to make him a Lightning McQueen cake! Along with some matching cupcakes :)
Such a cute face ;)

It all looked so cute at the party!
All the kids and the cake! Oh and Martha…ehehehe

Emily and Mike asked me to make a cake to help celebrate their friends great success!! =)
Death to false burgers!!
Yay! Grill ‘Em All is located at 19 E Main Street, Alhambra, CA 91801.
Hello Kitty Watermelon!
Emily’s 1st birthday cake will always be one of my favorite cakes! =) But now that she’s getting older, Baby Einstein is no longer one of her favorite characters… she’s moved on to Hello Kitty. Such a girl! =) Betty asked me to make her a cake to match her favorite stuffed animal. She happened to be dressed as a watermelon so I decorate the cake as one too!
Close up! She’s rather chubby… oops! :P
Stuffed animal and matching cake! =) YAY!
In January (Yay guys!! I’m finally onto 2013!!!) Frances asked me to make her a cake for her sister’s birthday! She wanted it Totoro themed, which made me super excited. I’ve never actually watched a single episode of that anime, but I grew up with two best friends who absolutely loved Totoro. Hi Anne! Hi Naoko! =)
Obviously she LOVED her cake! Yay! Welcome to your teenage years Christy!! GOOD LUCK! =P
