A Little About Me

After growing up making all the sweets at every family gathering and holiday, I fell in love with desserts. I chose to attend the Culinary Arts program at Brigham Young University Idaho. After graduating I have worked at various jobs making cakes and other goodies. The most recent being the Pastry Chef for the Oxford University Club, Taylor Grocery Special Events Catering in Oxford, Mississippi, and now my mom's farm-Fiddlin Rooster Farm- in Water Valley, MS. I have many family recipes and several of my own that I enjoy making and would love to make them for you.

Birthday & Baby Shower

I had two cakes this weekend. I think they turned out very pretty. I hope you enjoy!
Birthday Cake
This cake is a 2 layer round 9 inch white cake with a fluffy vanilla butter cream icing. This icing recipe is really delicious. My sister gave me the recipe. It is so soft that you have to fluff it on the cake, because it won't smooth easily. The flowers are made of gum paste. $25.00

Baby Shower

This is a single layer 9x13 white cake with a fluffy strawberry butter cream icing. It has gum past flowers on the corners and the monogram is made with white and chocolate fondant. $30.00

Heart Cake

My Birthday Cake!

I know my birthday isn't until next week; however I had extra batter from another cake and decided to go ahead and make this one. I have wanted to make this design for a while now. And finally I had an excuse. It is a chocolate 2 layer heart shaped cake. I filled it with a strawberry cream cheese icing and then covered it in white and chocolate fondant. I'm not sure if I like it better with or without the bow. This cake would cost $35.00.

Birthday Cake for Meg

A birthday cake for a young girl!
I like to make cakes designed specifically for each person. This one was made for a girl named meg. She wanted a chocolate cake with strawberry icing. And she wanted it decorated with daisies, a purple bow, and orange writing. I think it turned out pretty cute and I hope she has a wonderful birthday!

This is a 10 inch square chocolate cake with strawberry cream cheese icing. The bows and tag are made of sugar paste. $30.00
