Fall-ing in Love

Fall is a gorgeous time of year to have a wedding in East Tennessee--and fall colors look gorgeous on a wedding cake! Mama Confectionista made this delicious confection: three tiers of both vanilla cake with fresh strawberry filling and white almond sour cream cake, iced in buttercream with fondant flowers in burgundy, burnt orange, and white. So pretty!

30 Rock

When your good friend hit a milestone birthday, it's important to make them feel....OLD! ha ha. When that friend just happens to see the Metallica cake you made, and request a cake with his favorite band logo on it, you can't help but say yes. This one was fun to make--the eye logo is layered fondant and the "Tool" logo is fondant as well. Icing is buttercream. Little Confectionista wishes her buddy Chris a very happy 30th birthday! I hope the cake is as tasty as it is Tool-arific!

Pac Man Fever

When your friend Jess wants to have an 80's themed birthday party for her twins, and some of her fondest memories are of spending time at Pizza Hut playing the console version of everyone's favorite video games, what's the perfect dessert? Pac Man cupcakes of course! These tasty gems (3 dozen) were decorated with Pac Man, Ms. Pac Man, the ghosts (Pinky, Blinky, Inky, and Clyde) and of course all the food that gives you a bonus of 1 up or 2 up! And of course no 80's theme party would be complete without a personalized, neon decorated cupcake just for you! These were so much fun to make--I hope they're as much fun to eat!

The personalized cupcakes for Sophia, Isaiah, and Jessica.

Rock Solid

When your groom is a big fan of metal (the music, not the alloy) what better way to celebrate your nuptials than a cake made with the logo of his favorite band? That's exactly what Little Confectionista made for her friend Robert, the rockin'-est groom ever! Congrats to the happy couple, have a Metal-tastic wedding day!
