This past weekend I had the pleasure of making a cake for a little boy who turned one. The mother wanted a zoo cake and asked if I was able to make a cake with some fondant animals on top. I’ve never tried it before and was excited to try! I ended up making an elephant, a lion and a giraffe. Continue reading

They tasted wonderful and were both soft and a little chewy. I really think you should try this recipe – I loved it! Continue reading

Here comes a bunch of photos! 🙂 Continue reading

This was such a fun cake to make. I usually worry so much about everything looking perfect that I’m rarely happy with the results since they are never perfect! All I can see are the imperfections and I regret making the decisions I made.. but that’s learning I suppose! 😉 With this cake though, I thought to myself that “it doesn’t have to be perfect” and it made such a difference!
