Cherry-Almond Cupcakes with Cherry-Vanilla Frosting

These are one of the best I've made. They looked exactly like they did in the magazine! They were also delicious too! The cake was most and yummy. The frosting has a pretty pink color that I love! The cherry was a great way to top it all off!

Black-and-White Irish Cream Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache, Irish Cream Vanilla Cream, Chocolate Shavings, and a Dark Chocolate Covered Coffee Bean

These were delicious! Everything worked so well together. The cupcake wasn't too sweet and ganache is always good. The only thing I would have done different in the Irish Cream Frosting. It was just different. I would've made it less dry. But overall it was good!

Hazelnut Creme Brulee Cupcakes with Vanilla-Hazelnut Frosting and Caramelized Sugar on Top

These cupcakes were so good! The cake was very moist. They have some sprinkled nutmeg on them. I messed up the frosting but it was my first time making frosting from scratch. But they were still good!

Simple Vanilla Cake

This cake was a challenge coming from my older brother to make just a simple but nice cake. I know it didn't come out the way I wanted but it was okay and tasted very good! It is just a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream! Yum! Then I piped flowers and nice borders.

Devil's Food Cake with Chocolate Buttercream

Oh yes, this was so good! I made it with a friend. I'll have to find the recipe. Then I'll post it! It has a chocolate chip border with white chocolate shavings all over!

Valentine's Day Cake

Valentine's Day! Well I made this with my friend for her family's annual Valentine's Day Dinner. It is a red velvet cake with whipped cream. There is a sculpted Cupid with his famous bow and arrow (sculpted my me). Then we have a flower bouquet consisting of roses and lilies (made by my friend). Then it has a sprinkle border! I know that the Cupid and bouquet are kind of squished together. The cake was yummy! 

Georgie Bulldog Cake

Ahhhh, I love this one! It is simple but perfect! We made it for another friend of the family. He is a big Georgie fan. It's a vanilla cake with vanilla pudding in the middle. It's covered with whipped cream. I sculpted a Georgia bulldog with his own Georgia jersey!

Guy Harvey Cake

This cake was made for a friend of the family's birthday. It is vanilla cake on the inside with just normal vanilla frosting. It's covered in light blue fondant with a blue rope-like piping around the bottom and blue gelatin looking like water. We sculpted a fish to put on top. We even piped the Guy Harvey logo!

Beach Cake

I made this cake for my friend's birthday. I made it with another friend of mine. I know it kind of looks like it's slouching down but the other stuff is good. The inside cake is chocolate-vanilla-swirled with vanilla buttercream and bits of crushed up Oreos. It was yummy! We used brown sugar as the sand. We even sculpted my friend in a bathing suit! She has a bag, cell phone, towel, bracelet, and umbrella. We used blue gelatin for the water and rolled out green gum paste for the seaweed. We have a sand castle, beach ball, and even small shells! She loved it!

Piano Cake

I made this piano cake for a friend. I know it looks a bit sloppy but it was like one of the very first cakes I made. It's nothing special on the inside just a moist vanilla cake with Cool Whip. It's covered in fondant. I thought it was pretty cool. A very challenging task I will say.
