Baked Goodness by Jessica

I’m in the process of putting together a list of cake flavors, cookies and baked goodness. I’ll post it with prices as soon as it’s complete! Hope everyone had a fantastic holiday.

 

I did this cake for a co-worker’s baby shower. It was Cat in the Hat themed. I covered the   cake with fondant and hand painted it with food coloring. It was really fun to do and a great experiment in painting with food coloring. I did the painting so it mimicked the look of a Dr. Seuss book with the strong black sketch lines.

 

 

This was a cupcake cake that I did for a little girl who loves the Corpse Bride. The cupcakes were delicious cookies and cream flavored with chocolate buttercream frosting. One of my favorites.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I did these scrumptious sugar cookies (my favorite!) for a little boy’s birthday party. They were decorated with royal icing and packaged in individual baggies.

One of my favorite flavors, cookies and cream cupcakes.

 

 

 

 

These margarita cupcakes are delicious and taste just like the real thing. They are made with a lime cake and lime buttercream and topped with a tiny bit of salt to mimic the rim of the glass.

 

 

 

This was a mola cake that I did for my grandparents 52 wedding anniversary. A mola is a textile from Panama that is made by hand in the San Blas islands. My grandparents lived in Panama for 10 years where my grandmother had a very successful business making clothes from these wonderful pieces of art. My grandfather is a sailor so it was a natural fit to do a mola of a sailboat. It will always be one of my favorites.

 

 

Thanks for visiting! More to come soon…

That’s right… Spongebob Squarepants. This is my most recent creation. Surprisingly for not having children I didn’t have to look at many photos of this little sponge. I created this for a sweet little boy’s birthday party. It’s meant to look very animated. I think it has a lot of personality. This cake is probably one of my favorites so far. I loved doing it.

This was a white sheet cake with vanilla buttercream. All decorations were made with fondant, hand cut and colored.

More to come soon…

The past year has really provided me with a lot of opportunity to try new things with cakes. I have been able to explore new techniques, new recipes and fun ideas. Below are a few of the cakes I’ve done recently.

This was my first attempt using fondant – homemade marshmallow fondant, nonetheless. It was for a wedding, note the “veil” on the horse. This was a really fun cake because it was decorated just like the horse owned by the bride. Really fun and very cool! This was at the beginning of my experimenting, around three years ago.

I did this cake in the fall of 2009. It is still – and I think always will be – one of my favorites. I love it when my vision comes to life. The figures were made by my very talented friend. I have since made her teach me all sorts of molding tricks. The whole cake was first iced with vanilla buttercream then covered with fondant, The figures were made from gum paste then painted with food coloring.

This was an interesting combination of Legos and Star Wars. Another fun cake that tested my skills. The cake was topped with oreo cookies before covering with fondant to create the pegs on top. This is always a big request among little boys.

Appropriately named Miss Lay D. Bug, this cake screamed personality. Again, all decorations are made with fondant. The cake inside was chocolate. This was for a ladybug enthusiast and it was a huge hit!

Sunflowers were the theme for this birthday party. The cake matched the invitation and sweet Baby Galiana matched with her outfit.

This transformers cake was for a little girl who absolutely loves bumble bee. The cake was designed to look like the front of the car with the transformers logo on top.

For the true Irishman – or toddler. This was a birthday cake for a little boy who belongs to one of the most Irish families I know. The dogs were boxers, modeled after their own.

Go Tigers! This was for the end of a basketball season.

Sweet Galiana’s baptism cake. The decoration was taken from her invitation. It was made with homemade marshmallow fondant.
