Born on the 4th of July. . .

This cake/cupcake order was for a first birthday.  It also just so happened to be Independence Day.  The mom wanted something patriotic, but also something free of bright blue and red icing that would have wound up all over every child by the end of the party.  Sprinkles and fondant solved that problem.  I think it still turned out pretty festive. :)

 A dozen strawberry....
 A dozen vanilla, a dozen chocolate...
And of course the smash cake!

There were a variety of cupcake flavors for guests to choose from.  All were iced in vanilla buttercream.

Physician Assistant Cake

My wonderful husband is currently in PA school, so for his birthday I made him a white coat cake complete with stethoscope.

The cake was french vanilla filled with a vanilla cream and fresh cut strawberries.  It was iced in strawberry buttercream and covered in marshmallow fondant.  Strawberry is Brian's favorite, so it works out pretty well that his birthday is in June.  I love that summer brings an abundance of fresh strawberries with it.  Delicious!
