Overwatch Birthday Cake

This is my sixth year in DC, and this is my sixth “fancy” birthday cake challenge.  This year Miles wanted an Overwatch birthday cake.  Overwatch is a video game. Most of his cakes revolve around a video game. It started with Sonic, then Minecraft, Pokémon, a Zelda Hylian Shield, Monster Hunter Felyne, and now Overwatch….

Graham Cracker Cake with Chocolate Frosting

I’ve realized that by now, most of the things I make are born out of curiosity, being lucky enough to have an ingredient on hand, or by way of cleaning out my cupboards.  This recipe would fall in the latter.  I’ve had a box of graham crackers for a while now from when I made…

m&m Birthday Cake

About a week ago, a friend of mine asked me to bake a cake for his son for his birthday. It was going to be a small gathering with just family and close friends. The bigger birthday blowout was going to be the following week. I made the cake, a simple yellow cake with chocolate…

Classic Yellow Cake w/Chocolate Fudge Frosting

In the District there lives a family about a mile away from me. A mom, dad, son, 3 dogs, one turtle and two other reptiles whose specific species I can’t remember. The mom and I grew up together in Michigan. We’ve been friends since 4th grade. She played a big part in helping me move…

Pokémon Pokéball Cake

Vanilla Malt Cake

I was sitting around brainstorming on what cake to bake next. I knew I needed to continue to practice decorating, but I needed a little inspiration. As I’m panning the living room a Valentine’s Day (no judging) candy wrapper caught my eye. My son had a left over pack of Whopper’s laying around. Voila! My…

Triple Chocolate Cake

My neighbor asked if I would bake a chocolate cake for her boyfriend’s birthday.  I of course said yes.  I dug out my favorite chocolate cake and frosting recipes and brainstormed on how to decorate it.  (Decorating cakes is not one of my strengths.)  I’ve seen really pretty cakes on Pinterest where there is a…

Soccer Ball Cake

  Ok, so the Sonic cake I made was a small success. One of my edith + ethel clients saw the cake and asked if I would make a soccer ball cake for her grandson who was turning 8. I immediately freaked out. How in the world would I do it? Sonic was for my…
