Seahorse Beach Cake

Seahorse Beach Cake

Who can resist a playful Seahorse Beach cake  for a celebration of love at the shore? And the ocean colors of coral and seagreen make this cake ‘break wave’ for the occasion.

After all, seahorses mate for life!

What makes this cake special in design? A splash of seaside colors on the buttercream. And the lower part of the cake has crumbs from shortbread cookies so as to resemble sand. Together with the above, the fondant seashells adds the final touch of ocean nostalgia

Most of all, the seahorses in the eel grass makes this cake worthy of standing alone. The cake is perfect for an intimate wedding or anniversary. It’s also an excellent choice for a top tier or a beach-themed wedding cake.

In addition, together with the How to Make Trendy Cakes video tutorial, it will be a piece of cake.

How to Make Caramelized Chocolate

How to Make Caramelized Chocolate

Have you baked with caramelized chocolate? If not, then hold on to the baking mitts and turn on the oven because adding this tidbit to your cookbook will be the best thing ever!

It’s a win-win!

Roasting chocolate in the oven creates a strong nutty fragrance and produces something slightly less sweet with an assertive caramel flavor.

And in this blog post, I’m going to show you how to make caramelized chocolate.

It so easy to do. You’ll love it!

How to Make Caramelized Chocolate

Let’s get started roasting the chocolate. Using an 8″ baking pan stir in 9-ounces of white chocolate and 1/8 teaspoon of salt. Bake @ 250°F (130°C).

According to your oven, the chocolate needs to be stirred every 10 to 15 minutes until the chocolate becomes a peanut butter color (approximately 1 hr/30 min).

Watching the YouTube video will give the end-results of the color and the texture of the caramelized chocolate.

In addition, the caramelized chocolate needs to rest overnight. The next morning, break into pieces, and store in an airtight container. The chocolate will stay fresh for up to 4 months.

So, don’t forget to make extra for all the baking goodies and don’t miss out on the ganache recipe. It’s coming soon!

Intimate Wedding Anniversary Cake

Intimate Wedding Anniversary Cake

An intimate wedding anniversary cake. It’s perfect for a small wedding or to celebrate a milestone anniversary with friends. 

The design of this wedding anniversary cake can be changed and the heart (with or without) the bridal couple in the center and with this in mind, the doves are the main focal part of the design.

Anyhow, attach the doves to the heart with royal icing and allow the decoration to air dry on a cake dummy before placing onto the buttercream cake.

On the back of the heart, a dab of buttercream will adhere the design to a chilled cake.

Finally, long black hat pins for the eyes, adheres the doves onto the heart design. Last but not least, don’t forget to remove the pins before serving the cake.

Barbie Silhouette Cake

Barbie Silhouette Cake

This contemporary Barbie Silhouette Cake gives an uptown jive designed in the color theme – red, white and black.

Why not pink? Simple. Not all gals continue to gorge on pink after their 5th birthday. Sooo…this is a sophisticated version for all the sisters who still love Barbie forever ‘n ever. 

(Scroll on down for the timelapse video: How to Make a Barbie Silhouette Cake.)

To be totally honest, I was a late Barbie lover bloomer. My mother would not allow me to play with a Barbie or Ken. Her remarks were , “the body shapes are out of proportion … grotesque! What body looks that weird?”

(Now’s the time to say that Mom was 5’2″ & Dad 6’1″?) sealed

In my late teens,  I began to resemble this gal on the Barbie Silhouette Cake and began to morph in Barbie’s image more ‘n more.

I was in the ‘dithers.’ I was cursed by hormones.

And then people couldn’t remember my name.  *sigh* Instead of Brenda, I’d hear, “Barbie!”

Needless to say, as soon as the name change would happen, I’d be a teary-eyed emotional wreck. My body image was pratically in the sewer with the words Mom thought of Barbie – gross ‘n weird.

It wasn’t the greatest time period in my life.

I began to morph even more in my twenties. Modeling agencies loved long legs ‘n skinny gals – grotesque ‘n weird became a good thing.

And the best thing EVER to happen to me? I had a baby girl. Did she play with Barbie? She sure did! All the Barbie dolls of the world.

Were their body issues? Uh-huh. But now she’s all grown-up and proud to be a Barbie body. How come?

‘Cause with longer legs … she can eat more.

(That’s a joke … got it?) sealed

Hi my name is Sylvester and I mind my Ps & Qs.  Walking in the woodlands is my favorite thing to do.

My favorite pastime is chasing fluttering butterflies and rolling in colorful falling leaves.  And my secret wish is to belong to a little boy to love and please.

And thanks so much in advance, for choosing me for your cake.

Owl Cake

Owl Cake

The wise little owl boasted to his prankster friend, “Wow! Look at me! I’m featured on Owl Cake.”

Crowley’s covered his eyes with a right wing and moaned, “That’s all I need in my life right now is a feather fluffed owl hooting in my oak tree.”

So the crow flew off deeper into the woods to get away from the boasting owl.

He was on a mission.

A mission to make the owl cake pale in comparison. It was the time to show up his owl friend and quieten all his hoots.

He had to decide what to do.

And then the crow remembered the town was having a bake sale and off he flew.

He was on a mission and knew what to do.

Gathering lots of trinkets that glistened in the sun, he decorated a cake with his treasures, one by one.

A crowd began to gather with lots of ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ for his work of art. And the judges gave him a blue ribbon for doing his part.

With the proof in his beak he flew towards the woods. His mission to make a crow cake felt so good.

The little owl looked at the ribbon and rotated his head 270 degrees. You’re a little prankster that takes what he sees. A stolen ribbon has nothing to prove.  An owl cake has meaning, if you get my groove.

Seeing the hurt in the eyes of the crow, the wise owl knew. Crowley had won the award so he began to hoot.

‘So let’s all give a hoot!’

And they all followed suit.

The moral of the story:  In a world where you can be anything. Be yourself.

Ballerina Cake

Ballerina Cake

Little girls dream of being a ballerina and this dancing Ballerina Cake will keep you on pointe with a cake pattern and time lapse video.

Let’s meet a Ballerina named Florina and warmup at the barre.

Florina was a ballerina who loved to twirl. Even strangers on the streets asked, “Are you dizzy, girl?”

Spinning three times and ending with a plie, Florina told everyone who’d listen, “I’m going to be a ballerina on stage one day.”

Her favorite class was with the ballerina, Madame Trudeau. It was the day of the week she wore her pink hairbow.

Stretching at the barre and getting lots of praise, she reminded the class their first recital was in five days.

The music began and chill bumps dotted her arms. It was time to dance and show off her practiced charms.

Smiling brightly with her chin up slightly, she pranced onto the stage. For this was her moment to shine as she spun on a dime and judging by the  audience response, clearly amazed.

She was so excited after the show and her dad gifted her with a rose. Not knowing what her parents had in store, they led her into a room with balloons galore.

And to her surprise classmates were waiting, anticipating the look upon her face. Oh me. Oh my. She had completely forgotten, it was her sixth birthday.

Heart full of grace her eyes focused on the cake and she squealed with delight. Closing her eyes to blow out the candles, she whispered giddily, “I wish, I might, remember this night” and her eyes shone bright.

A ballerina on stage on her birthday and a ballerina cake, those three wishes had come true.

In her own little world Florina the ballerina began to twirl. She twirled and twirled…and twirled.

WITHOUT DANCE, WHAT’S THE POINTE?

Mermaid Cake

Mermaid Cake


A free template and time lapse video for this Mermaid Cake tutorial gives the ‘fins up‘ to customize the cake.

Personalize this celebration cake by changing the colors of her eyes, hair and skin tone to make this birthday cake just like her.

‘Cause little girls dream of being and seeing a mermaid.

Raindrops fell from the sky…

It was a rainy day and it wasn’t suppose to be. Tomorrow was her birthday and Sunday she would leave.

Lots of local trinkets glistened in the sand. Bright colored beads made into long seaworthy strands.

Gifts to the mermaids that were known to swim by the shore. Candies and chocolates even a few of her favorite s’mores.

A gust of wind blew the clouds away and on the nearest buoy she saw her first mermaid.

Bedazzled in splendor tapping her tail in rhythm. The lighthouse and the rocks turned into an amazing prism.

Enchanting folklore rode with the wave. The lure of the siren song lifted her heart to be brave.

Mesmerized to swim to the musical sway. Should she go to the mermaid or listen to her mother and stay?

A hypnotic tone came from a sandhill nearby. The mystical mermaid beckoned with a smile.

Dazzling in the mermaid’s hair a sea urchin strand of pearls. Ocean creatures swam around creating sandy swirls.

Relaxing on a pearly pillow inside an iridescent shell, lounged the fashionable diva who knew her so well.

All about the tokens on the beach given to her pods. How the merfolk queen had graciously given the birthday nod.

For the celebration expect a big surprise, the gift will be a trustworthy mermaid in human folk disguise.

The party started and she couldn’t find her mom. And where was the mermaid who promised to come?

Lights dimmed, candles blazed bright and her eyes blinked twice to see. Standing before her was the prettiest mermaid, this day was meant to be.

Gifting a replica Mermaid Cake her heart began to soar and never in her wildest dreams imagined this before.

For all this time she’d never guessed what life had in store. For her Mother was the mermaid, the one she’d always wished for.

Moral of the Story: Birthday wishes do come true and always trust your Mom to do what’s best for you.
