A Different Take

Many times a wedding cake design incorporates ribbon into the theme, and this lovely gem Mama Confectionista made does too, but with a little twist. The ribbon goes around the top of the tiers instead of the bottom! It's a fun way to be traditional while still being a little more unique. This delicious white cake is frosted with cream cheese and filled with raspberry filling.

What A Drag

Turning 40 is a big milestone...and not always one you look forward to--unless you have an awesome cake to help you celebrate! This cake was made for a friend's husband who races for a living. It was designed to mimic the dragster he drives and The Confectionistas think it's a winner!

Super Cute!

The latest in birthday party cakes for the younger set is definitely Mario--Little Confectionista had two requests for Mario cakes in one week! Here's a glance at the cake made for 6 year old Luke. The other cake is for 7 year old Cameron and looks exactly the same. Happy birthday boys!

Oh My Ganache!

Sometimes the only thing to make your day better is chocolate--and lots of it! This gorgeous cake certainly takes care of that hankering and then some. It's devil's food cake covered in semi-sweet chocolate ganache and topped with hand dipped chocolate covered strawberries. Indulgent, delicious, and satisfying to any chocoholic!
