Cakes

I am also a hobbyist cake decorator and have a site at bakedindy.com. In this section I place photos of cakes I made with how-to’s for some of them.

Have Your Cake & Eat It Too

If you follow my blog you may know that cake decoration is a favorite craft of mine. I have a cake site that features many of the cakes I’ve made over the years. With the craft business taking off, I don’t have as much time anymore to make cakes, but I do still make them every now and then. It’s been a while since I’ve [...]

Mmmm…CAKE!

So a big hobby of mine is making cakes.  Cakes are very time consuming, but I do have a lot of fun making them.  The crazier, the better.  I love a cake challenge.  The funny part is, of all the cakes I make, the ones that are hardest for me are the traditional style cake.  It makes me nervous if I can get it perfect and do it right (since [...]

Did you miss me? I missed you.

Well I haven’t posted in quite some time now, but it’s time to get back on this wagon.  I haven’t stopped crafting / caking, I’ve just stopped posting about it, so I have a lot of great posts to add in the next few weeks with how-to’s.  Here is a little preview of a few projects I’ve been working on.  Much [...]

Unicorns and Rainbows…in CAKE of course!

Every Girl’s Dream   Rainbows, Unicorns, Hearts and Bows, oh my. I recently made a cake for a 5th birthday. The theme was Unicorns. I had creative control on the cake, and was presented with the party decorations, as well as the dress material. I then came up with this cake, from those inspirations. I made the inside of the cake a rainbow [...]

DIY Cupcake Picks

Today was a fun day, I got out of the house (away from kids) for a baby shower at the company I formerly worked. Having worked there 12 years before leaving to stay at home, they knew I made cakes and asked if I’d make the cupcakes for the party; I of course wanted to   They wanted a custom pick to include the baby’s nickname, Sprout, [...]

Air Jordan 3 Fire Red Shoe Cake

Well someone saw my first shoe cake from April on my facebook page and hired me to make a shoe cake for them. It was a very similar cake, but not exactly the same. Here you have it… I’m looking forward to another shoe order since each time I learn a little more. [...]

Sesame Street Birthday!

My son turned one recently and so we of course had a party.  I chose to go with a Sesame Street theme because I thought that would be fun.  Oh, and I saw someone challenge someone to make a cake of Mr. Hooper’s Store, so I wanted to accept that challenge.   I, being obsessed with crafting and the crack that is Pinterest, had to make [...]

A Game of Catch-Up!

Hello! I’mmmm baaack! I haven’t posted very much lately as things have just been kinda crazy in life the last few months. That certainly doesn’t mean I wasn’t busy making things to blog about though! I’m going to play a game of catch-up over the next few days and post everything I’ve been up to, crafty wise [...]

AIR Jordan 3 Retro Shoe Cake

Well it’s final four weekend and my cake for the week was an AIR Jordan 3 Retro shoe sitting on it’s box.  This was the first time I’ve made a shoe and to date definitely one of my coolest cakes.  I had so much fun working on it and wish I had more time to add even more detail and measure instead of eyeball.  I was scared that [...]

It’s a Boy! Mustache Baby Shower Cake

My most recent order was for a baby shower. The theme was Blue and Brown (it’s a boy!) and, mustache’s. I created a mini baby belly cake for the mom to be, and chocolate mustache cupcakes for everyone else. It was vanilla cake with brown and blue sprinkles inside for fun, then butter creme frosting in blue, and I molded Ghirardelli [...]
