spumoni cake

Spumoni Rosette Cake!

Kinda.  I mean, in all honesty this cake was inspired from some ice cream I saw at the grocery store.  But when I saw it the first thing I thought was… Neapolitan Cake.  I need to make this “spumoni” into my Neapolitan Cake! So I did.  I mean, kinda.  I got the colors right… but […]

Rainbow Birthday Cake

Swirly Rainbow Cake (Inside and Out!) #rainbow #cake #birthdaycake

My little girl turned five this past week.  Five!  In the midst of extensive Christmas baking, I took a break from all this green and red and peppermint and made a perfectly perfect girly girl cake. With Audrey’s help of course!  The last couple years I have let her “design” her cake;  she tells me […]

Christmas Surprise Inside Cake

Christmas Surprise Inside Cake #surpriseinside

I had no intention of sharing this cake. Everything that could go wrong, did. The multi-colored roses are oddly resembling a pile of mush.  The touch of green leaves is a more of a massive green undergrowth and has a life of its own. And the inside… well.  Lets just say that was not my […]

Pumpkin Pie Rose Cake

Pumpkin Pie Rose Cake!  The perfect way to jazz up pumpkin pie!

This “cake” was a fusion of two things I love.  My original Rose Cake design and Pumpkin Pie.  Let me be more specific… pumpkin pie smothered in whipped cream.   I have to tell you, the Buttercream Rosette Cake is near and dear to my heart.  Its by far the most popular cake I have ever […]

Patriotic Rose Cake {Video Tutorial}

Did you know that the Rose is the National Flower? Did you know I just made that up so that a Patriotic Rose Cake would seem more natural? A very smart reader, Lisa, shared this (thanks Lisa!) : “The rose was designated the official flower and floral emblem of the United States of America in […]

Neapolitan Rose Cake

UPDATED: Video Tutorial HERE I am obsessed with Neapolitan lately.  And if you are friends with me on Instagram you already know this. I shared this picture yesterday.  As well as another picture of the pre-frosted cakes the day before. And I even made another Neapolitan Rose cake last week that was for the amazing staff […]

Rose Cake Tutorial

SO excited to share with you how easy it is to make the rose cake. (Video tutorial HERE.  In four minutes I frost an entire three layer Rose Cake!) Seriously, once you see you are going to run right out, buy a 1M tip, and make one. That or go back to work. Or bed. […]

Vertical Layer Rose Cake

*Tutorial HERE! I have been dreaming about this cake for about a month. Dreaming of layers that went up and down instead of horizontally. Dreaming of obscene amounts of delicate frosting roses. Dreaming of a variety of flavors. And finally, my dream has come true. Normally I share recipes and techniques and design aspects and […]
