Spa Birthday Party Cake

Here’s a cute little cake I did for a spa birthday party hosted by Gaggle & Giggles.

Here are a couple of photos from actual spa parties they have hosted. Yes…they are for little kids. Pretty nice!


Colin’s 6th Birthday

I had the pleasure of making Colin’s 6th birthday cake last week. Baseball theme…right up my alley! I also made cupcakes for his class and designed a topper for the cupcakes to match the baseball theme.

Here’s what his mom Tracy had to say:

Let’s just say, your cake and cupcakes were an absolute hit in Colin’s Kindergarten class as well as his party at home. Colin absolutely loved his baseball cake. For the first time in a while, I got to see the kid in my husband……I wish I had the video recorder on when he came home and saw Colin’s cake… husband’s exact words were “That’s an awesome cake!”

As for the taste of your cake, it was absolutely delicious. Everyone couldn’t stop talking about how good the peanut butter buttercream icing tasted, it was so smooth and silky. You did an incredible job on both the cupcakes and cake.

Thanks again for making my sons 6th birthday a very special day to remember.

Ashley & Christopher’s Wedding

Yesterday, I had the honor of making Ashley and Christopher’s wedding cake. This is one of my favorite designs. I just love the delicate flowers on the cake. The buttercream covered cake was spice cake with caramel buttercream filling and white cake with lemon buttercream filling. The vintage cake plate was provided by Ashley’s grandmother…what a lovely touch. The wedding and reception were held at the Berry Patch Bed and Breakfast in Lebanon, PA.

Alyssa & Spencer’s Wedding

I’ve been waiting for this wedding for many months. Alyssa is so much fun and just stunning. She envisioned bright orange and fuschia filling the courtyard at the Eden Resort in Lancaster. She knew she wanted a bright orange cake with fuschia accents inspired by the colors and swirl design from her wedding invitation. I was very excited for the challenge 🙂

I absolutely love how this 150 serving 4 tier cake turned out. The cake flavors were white cake with raspberry buttercream filling, chocolate cake with peanut butter and chocolate ganache filling, coconut cake with vanilla coconut buttercream filling and chocolate cake with oreo buttercream filling. It was a big cake! I designed a rhinestone trimmed cake base to compliment the cake.

Alyssa looked stunning! Her beautiful make-up was done by the super talented Carmina Cristina.

Hand written escort cards with jewel accent looked amazing.

Beautiful florals by Alyssa’s friend Kelly Arnano.

Spencer checking out his groom’s cake.

The cake was blue velvet with vanilla buttercream filling.

Mike with Mixed-up Productions kept the music going!

Jonnaysa and Diana with Planned Perfection coordinated the day.

Thanks so much Alyssa and Spencer for letting me be a part of your amazing day!

Cake Decorating & Spa Party

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of doing a cake decorating party for an adorable young lady who turned 6. The party was at the Polished Day Spa in Lemoyne. Why at a day spa? In addition to the cake decorating, they all got mani and pedis…how nice!

I did a mini dessert table and cake for the party too. Chocolate dipped marshmallows, cupcakes, chocolate dipped pretzels and popcorn for the girls.

Custom water bottles to go with the spa & princess theme.

All the girls decorated their own crowns and necklaces before frosting and decorating their cakes.

So much fun working with fondant! Just like Play Dough…

It was a blast! We all had fun.

Polished Day Spa is the perfect place for your next girl night out and a great place for all your pre-wedding pampering. Make sure you check them out and their new hair cutting and styling services.

Kathy & Harry’s Wedding at the Cork Factory Hotel

When I met with Kathy and Harry at our initial consultation, they said they wanted a cupcake tower displayed with nature and trees incorporated into the presentation. I thought putting the tower on a real tree stump would be the perfect way to tie their desired look into the cupcake tower display and I love how it looked. Leah McMaster with Fashionable Affairs, who did the coordination, went on a hunt and found the perfect tree!

Flowers on the cupcakes were dark green, light green, dark brown and light brown to coordinate with the colors of nature.

The moss draping over the edge of the tree stump was especially beautiful.

Fresh spider mums adorned the cake topper. So pretty.

I found this beautiful wooden frame which complemented the whole look of the reception. The cupcake flavors were lemon drop (white cake filled with fresh lemon curd and topped with vanilla buttercream frosting), red velvet with honey cream cheese frosting, carrot cake with honey cream cheese frosting and chocolate cake filled with chocolate ganache and topped with chocolate buttercream frosting.

The wedding and reception were held at the elegant Cork Factory Hotel in Lancaster PA. Newly restored, historic and just a beautiful venue.
