I had never even heard of Five nights at Freddy’s until a few months ago when a friend asked me to make this particular cake for her son. Five nights at Freddy’s is a video game series and recently released horror film and apparently a huge rage amongst the pr***en generation. The birthday boy also wanted Freddy’s sidekick Mr. Cupcake (yup - that’s his name) cupcakes. It’s a cute but rather creepy character in the series. Ok - they are all creepy but so much fun to make!

How do you get black icing to taste absolutely delicious? Well, you add the darkest black cocoa powder to your favourite chocolate icing and you will end up with the most decadent icing that’s perfectly black and tastes divine! This cute “falling leaves” cake was made for a friend who loves peanut butter. In fact this was my first attempt at a dark chocolate cake with chocolate icing and a peanut butter filling - a specific ask of hers. She later told me that this was the most delicious cake she had ever tasted - absolute music to my ears!

My friends son, Zayan, was celebrating his birthday with his soccer club so his mom sent me a picture of his uniform with his colourful cleats - I tried to replicate his club colours along with the team logo and his neon cleats! I thought it was adorable!! What do you think? The cake was a scrumptious and decadent chocolate flavour.

The Barbie fever continues…. was certain someone was going to ask for a Barbie cake sooner or later! This one is for a young adult who loved the movie and what it stood for. Glad I was able to bring a bit of that women power in the form of pink glam to her! ,

The pocky cake! Strawberry pocky sticks envelope this scrumptious vanilla and raspberry icing cake with a pastel sprinkle top. I used to love snacking on these decadent biscuits as a kid, sampling the various flavours available. The chocolates stick are of course a classic but I always found the strawberry ones far more satisfying and delicious; hence, what a fun treat it was to decorate this cake💕

Check out this cutie!! This lavender cake with lemon icing is as delicious as it sounds! I used dried lavender and infused it with plenty of lemon zest to strike the perfect balance of scent and flavour. A young client with a rather sophisticated palate had requested this cake for her birthday and I’m beyond thrilled that she loved it! Happy birthday Sehaj!

This gorgeous shabby chic cake was specially designed for Leyla and Bella - these adorable twins who just graduated from high school. My vision for this cake was for it to be elegant and pretty - I wanted plenty of pink hues but I also wanted to compliment the pistachio flavour of the cake with the addition of the green touches. Both these girls are off to wonderful colleges in the fall and I can’t wait to see where their journeys take them. Congratulations Leyla and Bella!

Congratulations to Tarika - a dear friends daughter as she heads to Tufts for college! She got in early decision and we couldn’t be more thrilled for her! The Tufts mascot is an elephant so she wanted that on her bespoke cake. This was a dairy free vanilla cake with strawberry icing - light and scrumptious!

This story is adorable - a couple met in Jamaica years ago and one of their favourite activities was to visit these Dunns River Falls. Fast forward 30 years and I’m happy to bring Dunns River Dalls to them as a cake!! I had never made a waterfall themed cake before so this was definitely a learning curve but I’m thrilled with the way it turned out. My favourite part was the texture of the water- I wanted to make it fluid, almost like it was moving. It also needed to have a glistening element so I used white buttercream and carefully spooned blue sparkle gel on it and luckily the combo worked! The marbling and shading on the rocks also added a very realistic tone to the top of the cake. Happy Anniversary to Anjali & Rick!

When a friend asks you to make a cake for her 95 year old father you say YES!!! And her ask was so unique. Her dad Jerry loves red wine and chocolate - the best combo ever! So for his 95th birthday cake we created a chocolate crate cake with a personalised bottle of red wine compete with his year of birth AND it’s all edible!!!

Oh and the cake also needed to withstand a 4 hour drive to Raleigh :))) Love a challenge

Happiness is a cute dog on your birthday cake!!! My friend sent me a picture of her nephews dog and was telling me how the dog was her 1 year old nephew’s best friend. So of course that dog was going to be front and center of this cake! Love when you can have your cake and play with it too:)))

My first attempt at a porcelain inspired cake. A lovely 15 year old wanted a porcelain cake for her birthday so when her mom got in touch with me, I had to look up what that even meant. I am so happy with this first attempt! Also the contrast of the peach peonie was just the right amount of bling. Hope our birthday girl enjoys her blueberry lemon porcelain cake!

Sophie’s twin sister Mimi requested a tennis themed cake and I’m so thrilled with the way this cake turned out. I made the net a couple of days in advance to harden the fondant so it would stand on its own. The adorable cupcakes were for her to share with her classmates!
