Cake has been a part of my life for as far back as I can remember. My Mom was a cake decorator when I was younger and I discovered a few years ago that I had inerited her talent for it as well. I have not been satisfied with my jobs for a while now so I thought why not do something I love. Helping people celebrate the big moments of their lives. I can do cakes for all occasions. Let me be a part of your next celebration. Official website is secondgenerationcakedesign.com

Snowflake Baptism Cake

I was asked to make a special cake for a little girls baptism. She wanted a cross and snowflakes on it and said I could run with the rest of the design. I love these kind of cakes because I love creative freedom. I started with the snowflakes and then MANY tiny white dots of fondant swirls to make them look as if they were falling on the cake. I then used my new letter punch to write "God Bless in fondant. Why I didn't use frosting to do all the dots? Well butter is not white (why manufacturers feel the need to put yellow coloring in butter still baffles me) and would give the dots a yellowish tinge that would take away from the crisp whiteness of the snowflakes and cross. I decided on the purple background color because I just love the look of snowflakes on purple. Was a little nervous about the purple but they loved it!
