Candy Dot Cake

The client of this cake found me through my blog and she loved my work so she contacted me.  She asked me if she could sample my cakes.  I gave her a list of the cakes I make and she chose two that I made for tasting.  I made a yellow loaf with Oreo buttercream filling and a yellow loaf with light whipped buttercream with fresh strawberries.  She and husband had a hard time deciding, but at the end chose the second.  This is not entirely my design.  she brought me a picture of this cake and I made it with some modifications. I will go and deliver it today and hopefully she will love it! Thanks for looking at my work!

Maltese Dog Cake

This cakes was made for an adorable little girl that absolutely loves her Maltese named Pepi.   Her favorite color is purple and her second favorite color is blue.  She's a girly girl and knows what she likes at the tender age of 8.  Her mom wanted to make her something special that would make her little girl smile. Their family has gone through a lot this year.  Hopefully Sophia enjoyed her cake just as much as I did making it for her. The dog is sculpted out of cereal treats covered in  MMF with Tylose.  My husband said to me: "Wow, Negra (term of endearment to me) you truly are an artist" That made me feel great and honestly, I love how the dog came out, it really looks like Pepi. The best parThe flavor was vanilla loaf with chocolate buttercream filling and iced in  the same, then covered in MMF (marshmallow fondant) tinted in those fabulous colors (my favorite too).  Feel free to leave me comments!  Thank you for looking!

Old Lady Cake

This was so much fun to do.  The recipient of this cake had asked me for a particular cake that she wanted for her birthday.  I was going to make it when her sister called me and asked me not to make the cake her sister wanted because she was throwing a surprise party for her and wanted a funny cake instead.  I had to tell the birthday girl that something came up and I could not make what she had asked for. I felt really bad because she was disappointed.  Needless to say she was super surprised with the birthday bash her sister threw in her honor, and although it wasn't the cake that she originally wanted, she still loved it
Thanks for looking!

The flavor was marble cake with buttercream filling.  the cupcakes are half chocolate and half vanilla with buttercream frosting and a gumpaste flower and edible pearls.

Parisian Love

This cake was made for a Parisian theme bridal shower.  I am very pleased on how it came out.  The silhouettes were cut out out fondant with a bit of tylose for stability.  Flavor is Marble with Chocolate buttercream filling.  "Love is in the air"

Batman Cake

I wish I could say the idea for this cake was mine, but that would be cheating.  The client showed me several cakes for her little boy's birthday and I just fell in love with the one I replicated with a few minor changes. I absolutely loved the figures because they are little boys dressed up like the super heroes.  I thought the idea was appropriate for a 4 year old boy.  I totally enjoyed making this cake.  the figures, the bats, the moon and the symbol on top are all made out of gumpaste.  The cakes were each 6 inches high and each tier consisted of 3 Leelee's specialty vanilla divided by dulce de leche filling.When the client picked it up she was really happy and gave me a hug. I was so happy!

Cherry Blossom

this cake was made for a bridal shower.  Flowers and branches are all made of fondant.  The flavor of the cake is yellow sponge cake with chocolate ganache filling.
