Spring is clearly in the air and on my mind! Recently, my cake design inspiration has been the season of spring! I love the weather, sunshine, watching flowers bloom, and wearing those cute summer dresses! Okay, okay, now back to the cake. This cake was one that I made for one of my intermediate cake classes. The butterflies and daisies are made with color flow, and the pink flowers are made out of royal icing. All other decorations are in buttercream. Enjoy the spring!

Ladybugs and flowers! This was such a fun cake to make! I love making cakes for little girls! The theme for the 1st birthday party were ladybugs. I didn't want to go over the top with the ladybugs, so I made one as the focal point, and surrounded her with flowers cut out of fondant. The cake board was customized to match the cake. Both tiers are chocolate with vanilla buttercream and all fondant decorations.

I see a theme here with my cakes...spring! This was my first attempt at creating the "basketweave" design on a cake. Outcome??? VERY tedious and hard on the hand! I am such a wimp! Regardless of the work involved, I did like the way the cake turned out. This is a lemon cake with buttercream icing and decorations.

Spring is here! Yay! This is such a scenic time of year where all the beauty from mother nature is seen blooming. What better way to say spring that make some flowers and butterflies. These were made for one of the sweetest people I know! These cupcakes are chocolate with creme bouquet infused buttercream. All of the toppers are made out of fondant.

Bring out the fairy dust! We have fairy princess cupcakes well underway! I wanted to make these little cupcakes as girly and as whimsical as possible. I shaped Tinks' fairy slippers, magic wand, and fantasy flowers out of fondant. I also incorporated a few white flowers made out of royal icing. These are vanilla cupcakes with buttercream icing. I added the finishing touch of Tinkerbell's fairy dust throughout some of the designs. I must admit, these were too much fun to make!
