All you have to do is slice your 2- 6″ cakes in half horizontally. Fill an icing bag with frosting after you have inserted your large tip, I used this one —> Wilton 1A tip . Pipe dots around the edge of the cake and then fill in the center solid. Place the next layer of cake on top of that and press down softly that will make it bulge out a little. Repeat 2 more times with the other layers and then on the top pipe the dots again around the outside. Using THIS tool, press down in the center of the dot and slide toward the middle of cake. Continue to all dots. Pipe more dots in center and repeat to make more petals and then fill the center solid.Life is sweet! learn how to make this cute Petal cake at sugarcoatedhousewife.comHow “SWEET” is that?!!

Naked Cake

Naked Cake

Naked Blessing cake

This NAKED CAKE was one of my favorite cakes! The simplicity of the design is so pretty and stunning for every occasion.

The cake is vanilla flavored, filled and topped with buttercream frosting. I got some flowers from the Flower patch  http://flowerpatch.com . They were so amazing to work with — if they didn’t have the flowers in the colors I needed, they just sprayed them and made them custom right there in the store! The BLESS sign was created using the Cricut Express AIR. It was so easy to personalize the cake for this event with this amazing machine.

I was so blessed to be given the opportunity to make this cake for some of my closest friend’s baby blessing. The day was perfect for a perfect little girl , Indy Llew. Indy looked so stunning in her beautiful dress created by Threads of light https://www.facebook.com/Threads-of-Light-359056890808409/?fref=ts

His wife wanted a detailed cake to express his love for traveling, snowboarding, kayaking, and the beach.

If you look real close you will see the go pro that he lost in the ocean but found a few hrs later!

Gumpaste was rolled into strips and then squished into a small ruffle and placed on cake with gumglue.

This took many hours, but definitely worth the finished product!! The inside of this cake was so fun! I did a Leopard design with the cake batter giving it the spots inside.
