So this Valentine originally didn’t start out as good one, but with my partner in crime by my side it turned out to be one of the most awesome Valentines ever!!!! So for all you out there who got their heart ripped out recently this one is for you guys. Yes it is still a cake and yes it still beats just for you.
Until next time,
will bake for steak…
So its cherry blossoms at least. My latest wedding cake done with butter cream and some handmade cherry blossom flowers. Next time I’m ordering those things, they were made with countless hours while watching HIMYM as well as glee and a bit of Futurama as well. Turned out pretty decent but i do wish I had a second fridge it would make for stacking them go a lot more smoothly. Yes i realize the headline is a bit misleading but meh what you gonna do sue me? Ah its been a while and y’all who keep up to date on this I give you guys a pat on the back and if u are my friend on facebook and message me before valentine’s day i will send you personally a nice treat. You guys got four days that’s plenty of time.
This next cake was the one i made for the holiday season, I think i made about 15 of these suckers this year. I realized i was going to compare this cake to last years but i dont think i posted a picture last season. Anywho i prefer this design much more, its a hella lot faster to do and i think it has a very elegant look. Sorry for the cruddy picture i remember to take a pic at the last minute and had to do it with frosting on “me fingers” (said in a Stewie from FamilyGuy manner the readers who know what im talking about totally rocks my socks). For those who noticed, yes those are milanos, why you ask? because i was too lazy to make lady fingers from scratch, hey us bakers need a break too and pepperidge farm is a great help to those who use it wisely. I was also very proud of the fact that was able to separate them easily by using the handy dandy microwave! Well thats all for now but i shall try to update again soon. Until next time…

So I haven’t updated my blog in forever, there are two valid reasons though. The first reason i couldn’t find my camera for the longest time and then once i found it i couldnt find the damn cord to transfer the pictures. But huzzah! i finally found the the cord and the camera so now were are back to business. Sorry the pictures look kinda cruddy i was in a rush to take them so i didnt get nice lighting but oh well hopefully the cakes dont look cruddy as well.
yes i can make cakes glow (jk it was the camera)
Princess and the frog cake for mandy (cutest child ever)
two more princess cakes
Yes mandy got two cakes for her birthday one for home and one for her school, its kai-lan take that dora!
Iron man! missing a few limbs but still victorious
A unknown gender baby shower cake, its chocolate peanut buttery goodness
I dont feel like writing a whole bunch so
Until next time, will bake for steak.
So I’m back after a brief hiatus from school and what not and there were a couple of cakes in between but the pictures are somewhere lost in the folders of my camera/ computer. This cake as you can see has a monkey on it. I was told to make a nice cake for a baby’s first birthday that was green and served around 50 and this is what happened. I just think too much green on a cake scream veggies and well cakes aren’t exactly that part of the food group so im not going to try and pretend that it is. I kept the green motif and had some in every layer and i think it went together nicely. Shout out to Mary for helping me with the color scheme and i just adore my lil monkey and his diaper that is hidden by the banner.
This was an order from the korean. A nice family acceptable cake with nothing provocative but still good for a 21st birthday. I was just told a few favorite colors and tried to make them mesh together nicely. The date was changed last minute so I didnt have enough time to let the ribbon harden has much as i would have wanted to, but the floppyness gave me a good reason to stick in the hearts which i think is a nice touch.
Horse cake? who really ask for a horse cake. Note this design is a copy of one i found sorry but no originality here. I scoured the internet for a cute looking horse cake and most of what i found looked like it belonged hanging on the wall of some hunter’s tavern. Try looking it up you will see what i mean nothing but horse heads, really realistic looking horse heads, not my idea of happy birthday if you know what i mean. At last i found this one it was soo adorable and all i needed was the approval of the birthday girl she wasnt a my little pony fan so i wasnt too sure if this what she would like. thank goodness she was still girly deep down and it worked it fine. The blush kinda makes it dont you think.
Of course a rubix cube and yes this is totally solvable as you can see the orange side is already solved and is on the bottom of the cake ( my excuse for not wanting to make orange squares). But this cake is accurate in that the each of the colors is a center piece because one of the tricks of the rubix cube is that the center piece doesn’t shift. That was fun but making squares would have been much easier with a pie cutter.
Guess who this guy is, one little hit. Gotta catch ’em all!
That’s right good ol’ pikachu. I thought the pokemon phase was over since it came out in my early stages of junior high which was a long long time ago. I was happy to make the familiar creature since its been a while since i seen his cute little yellow face and well basically yellow everything. Mary got some nice arm muscles from rolling out the fondant on this little guy.
thats seems like enough writing and pictures for one day. Until next time…

So here is the latest cakey, its Rinoa Heartilly from Final Fantasy 8, yes i am a nerd but no i’m not a gamer nerd unfortunately. I’m a mere anime and harry potter nerd =) My good buddy pat asked me to to make him this cake for a buddy so I made it very lorraine like as in i waited till the last minute and finished it at 5 am for an 830 am pick up. Yes i did work through the night and if it werent for my awesome daddy i wouldnt have woken up for the pickup 8 missed calls even with my phone on maximum volume right next to my bed. Yes i do sleep very soundly.
My next cake update might be next week or in two weeks not too sure yet depending if im going to try out my version of a yule log cake this week or not. Got finals coming up and projects i gotta work on so iono yet. Until next time…

So this is my cake for the one and only DAVID CHOI!!! Yea he is a pretty cool guy and interestingly enough he sounds even better live unlike a lot of recording artist so kudos for him. I went to one of his performances last friday at Hotel Cafe in LA and thought it be nice to show a little support to local that became pretty awesome on youtube. For those of you who don’t know who he is, for shame… but here is a link to my favorite song by him
Here is a close up picture of David in chibi form made of gumpaste, with the signature no smile face and authentic nice guy tshirt. (Ok well its not authentic but he is usually seen on his videos supporting his buddies in Wongfuproductions, who are also cool guys which i mentioned in a previous blog where i also mentioned they probably think im a crazy fangirl…fml, not my fault i get awkward when i meet famous people.)
Here is a close up of the design on one of David Choi Tshirt, his colors were a bit more retro and the whole thing was colored. The original plan was to make it look exactly like the shirt but it would have looked a bit messy so i kept the colors a bit more limited i think it gave it a cool urban vibe. BTW drawing that on a cake takes forever and a half but the work was worth it, he liked it or so it seems so yay! Anwho until next time…
will bake for steak.
ps. DAVID CHOI ROCKS! Ok now im really done
Ok, I totally lied I’m not done yet well it doesn’t really count because this is a edit i added more so that day i was done but now I’m not done with the post. Anywho I forgot to add the link to this video.
Yes that is my cake and that is totally david choi video taping it and about to eat it. And yes that is what you call bliss now i just gotta to personally give daniel henney a cake and see if he post a video about it too =)
now im done for realsies. Until next time…

So this was my first real wedding cake, I think it turned out quite nice for my first time. Oh my there goes my first paid wedding cake cherry. Yea I know I’m completely crude and vulgar and this is the first time it’s out in the open (well at least for the blog.) Sorry if it offends anyone.
Anywho this was a buttercream cake with mango filling and gumpaste decor. The swirles were drawn on with my handy little paint brush and gold food coloring. oh and memo to self next time makes more then just two extra plaques just in case they really come in handy. The drop off went smoothly that place is super nice. It was called Phan 55 a vietnamese modern style restaurant and it was very well decorated and came off as pricey. Anways until next time which is super soon..
