Tiny Wedding Cake Ornament

Sometimes couples adore their cakes so much they ask for a keepsake to be made from clay.
This is an example of one that was chosen as a gift from the bride to the groom for their first Christmas as husband and wife.

Queen Anne's Lace Wedding Cakes are made from scratch of two-layers, each sliced and filled, with a filling between each layer.

Most couples choose silky-smooth Swiss Meringue Buttercream as their frosting. 

Other popular buttercream frostings are American, French and Italian Meringue. 

I also highly recommend Chocolate Ganache, which makes a delicious base for Fondant-covered cakes.

Prices available upon request.

Queen Anne's Lace Cakes

Traditional Cakes

Back to Basics
The popular 1-2-3 cake recipe your own grandmother may have used, is just as simple and delicious as ever. Topped and filled with your basic American buttercream, it is a perennial favorite.

Perfect Pound
Firm, tart and not TOO sweet, this cake matches the personality of my own grandmother who made it so expertly. It tastes wonderful simply sprinkled with powdered sugar or whipped cream but is especially tangy with a lemon buttercream. Add a spot of tea and life is good.

It’s Bean a Real Slice
A moist vanilla cake with tiny fragrant flecks of pure vanilla bean mixed into the frosting. Filled with chocolate hazelnut spread, this cake smells as delicious as it looks.

Dive into Decadence
Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. Nothing lifts the spirits quite like it, and this will have you floating in bliss.  Whipped chocolate ganache is sandwiched between layers of fudge cake, with milk chocolate frosting slathered on top, made with creme fraiche and seasoned with a bit of salt to offset the richness. If you really want to indulge, chocolate petals can be sprinkled on top.

Sugar & Spice and Everything Nice
Just like my darling daughter, this cake is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.  A warmly flavored cake made with her favorite chai tea, this delicacy is filled and frosted with an exotic chai ganache. 

A recipe added to celebrate my husband's wonderful Italian family heritage. This zesty olive oil cake is layered with apricot filling and covered with a fluffy Italian meringue. (Sorry, garlic not included.)

Some Like it Hot
If you are among those who do, you will love this Mexican chocolate cake with a kick. The cinnamon spiced ganache frosting will warm your heart, melt in your mouth and leave your tongue tingling.

Make Mine a Mocha
A take on Tiramisu, this chocolate mocha cake is doused with coffee liqueur, filled with a flavored mascarpone filling,  frosted in cappuccino buttercream and sprinkled with cocoa.

Compassion Cake
A double chocolate delight cake filled with raspberries and frosted with a light raspberry topping, using only organic vegan ingredients.

Orange-You-Glad It’s Gluten-Free?
A flour-less orange and almond cake with creamy vanilla icing on top and within. You'll never miss what's missing.

You CAN have your Cake and Eat it, Too
Yummy yellow cake with decadent dark chocolate-orange frosting for those who prefer a low-in-sugar indulgence. With chocolate this rich, who needs extra sugar?
